Offices: Jacksonville & Orlando (Altamonte Springs)


I am a Florida Bar board certified attorney in criminal trial law and I have practiced both criminal and immigration.  Our firm handles all criminal, immigration and personal injury matters, as well as some wage and hour issues, as well.  We have offices in Jacksonville and Altamonte Springs (just 10 minutes north of Orlando).  Each of our attorneys have over 10 years of experience.  I am a former prosecutor, division chief at the State Attorney's Office and homicide prosecutor at that office.  I have more than 13 years experience.  We are spearheaded by Harry Shorstein, an icon in the Jacksonville community.  Mr. Shorstein was the elected State Attorney for 18 years.  He was a finalist for US Attorney.  And maybe most importantly, he was awarded the bronze star with valor for his service in the Vietnam War. His son Paul Shorstein is a former prosecutor, licensed in Georgia and has more than 12 years experience handling criminal and personal injury cases.  Our newest partner to the firm, John Gihon is a former Assistant State Attorney an former Immigration Prosecutor with more than 12 years experience.

Going above and beyond
I'd like to say that I've had very little trust in attorneys in general. In my particular case I was told by no fewer than 6 other attorneys that my case was hopeless. Mr Lasnetski and his staff took care of my issue and followed it up without me having to drive up to Jacksonville from where I live in South Florida. They are the best and worth every penny. I highly recommend Jeremy, you are in good hands with him.

Smart, yet sensitive customer service
Mr. Lasnetski helped us through the often complicated and obscure process of naturalization for my foreign-born spouse. Our situation was all the more challenging by the fact that our family was serving overseas for the U.S. Government, and I was then deployed to Afghanistan for an extended period of time. Being out of the country can pose hazards for a person seeking naturalization, but Jeremy navigated this morass carefully and properly. He filed the appropriate documents timely and accurately with the USCIS. Jeremy was also able to arrange for my spouse to have her naturalization interview and swearing in done on the same day, which was extremely helfpul given that my spouse had to travel from overseas to the USA for these appointments. The end result was success! My spouse sailed through the interview process and received her citizenship the same day. I highly recommend Jeremy's service, which provided us with a lifetime satisfaction with the very positive outcome. Lastly, Jeremy's service was a good value for the money.

Highly Recommended
The entire staff made my husband & I feel completely comfortable & answered any questions & concerns we had each step of the way. They were right there with us during the entire process & made it a lot less scary & stressful than it could have been. They are an awesome group of people who know what they're doing, do their job very well & efficiently, genuinely care about their clients & make you feel right at home with every visit. We've already referred them to our brother & sister-in-law, & would absolutely refer anyone else who has any type of similar need. We couldn't have made it through the process of my husband's residency without them, & we'll definitely be using them when the time comes for his citizenship!

Absolutely top notch.
When faced with an unimaginable situation I called Jeremy’s office on the weekend for help based on the job they did for a close family friends daughter. He was immediately responsive even on the weekend and was a great comfort. He was able to take care of some tasks early in the process to make our family members situation much easier. Then followed it up with some hard work that paid off in spades. I cannot imagine having gone to any other law office now that we have worked with Mr. Lasnetski. It was a bad situation for us from the start but now that we have gone through it I know we made the right call on our choice of attorney. Jeremy is highly recommended.

an excellent trial attorney for DUIs
Mr. Lasnetski defended our DUI very competently. He presented a very succinct case and we were found not guilty by the jury. We recommend him highly.

"Mr. Lasnetski is a leader in the newly emerging field of "crimmigration." He is a superb criminal trial attorney who also provides defense representaion in immigration matters. This is a unique and very much in demand skillset in today's fraud and enforcement oriented immigration environment. If you are a foreign national with criminal issues, you need someone like Mr. Lasnetski on your side. Clients should also appreciate the fact that Mr. Lasnetski is part of a prestigious law firm with a bluechip history."
