Reliable and Honest - Highly Recommended Attorney
Attorney Octavio is the best attorney I have ever worked with. He has helped me and my family throughout the years and I will continue to seek his help for any legal issues. I am extremely grateful for everything he has done for us especially for his guidance and honesty. He was very straightforward, professional, and went out of his way to help us in any way he could. I would highly recommend him to anyone for future services.

Client review report
I'll begin my review by stating that i'm a former client and i'm extremely impressed with Octavio and his work. Back in early January of 2014 i paid $2,500 to other law firms and in a time span of 2 years I've had 4 different attorneys for various false allegations. In conclusion, retaining Octavio was the best decision i made not only because of how productive he handled my case but also his professionalism. Thank you kindly Irene, Sulivan and Octavio. i will surely recommend my friends, family and peers of your law firm. sincerely Chris.M

BEST ATTORNEY HANDS DOWN!
Mr. Andrade is one fine attorney, I’ve (unfortunately but fortunately) had to acquire his legal services, and just as the description states, he really does fight for you until the very end. He helped me when I was a juvenile, facing juvenile charges, 2 or 3 Separate times he got everything dropped, taken care of. I believe I had to pay $400 to the city of Sanford for the last one, and that was it. No criminal record, no probation, no juvie time, for any of them. Keep in mind, they were all misdemeanors, for dumb stuff. Not only did Mr Andrade take me under his wing, but he tried to guide me in the right path. Then I turned 18, and got another case, this time, for marijuana. but in this in instance, Mr Andrade acknowledged the officer had NO RIGHT to conduct a traffic stop after viewing body camera footage, he did his first steps “my client pleads not guilty” I kept texting mr Andrade about the incident and he stated “don’t worry, I got your back” well, he wasn’t lying! A few days later I get a call from Mr Andrade stating “the state has decided to close the case” we cheered on the phone together, and I thank him for everything he has done for me. He saved me and I’ll forever be grateful for Mr Andrade. He is awesome, great guy. And this review is 100% real and updated. These are from incidents 2019-2020, and the most recent one in 2022. Mr. Andrade is still at it, doing his thing. And I appreciate him always. If you really need a good lawyer, stop looking, you have found one. He has helped me as a client, as a friend, and made me feel like I was a family member. I’ll be forever grateful for him, and if I ever need to acquire his services again, I will definitely be calling Mr Andrade first quarter.

Absolute best representation
I hired Mr. Andrade to represent me on a charge that occurred while I was in Florida oon vacation. Not only did he get my case dismissed/dropped I didnt even have to make 1 court appearance. He treated me with respect and always explained what he was doing and reasonable fees. Couldn't have asked for better representation.

Impressed with the skill and knowledge of the team!
I hired Octavio Andrade to represent me in traffic court. I was given a careless driving ticket for an accident that was, in reality, the other driver's fault. I went in and spoke to Mr. Andrade, and showed him the evidence I had gathered with photos of the scene and damage to my vehicle. He explained every possible outcome and what he believed his team could do for me. On the day of court, I didn't have to stress, or even deal with any of it. I sat there quietly, while they won my case for me, and saved me a lot of money and points on my license. It was so worth it! I would hire this attorney and his firm again without hesitation! Very pleased with the entire experience.

Excellent Lawyer
After contacting Mr. Andrade's office for legal services we setup a meeting that same afternoon. I sat and met with Octavio and Shannon. They were both extremely professional and easy to talk to. They took care of all court appearances and called me almost immediately after every new piece of information came to their office. They were always available and if I left a message they would call me back that same day. Erika in the office was also very knowledgeable and friendly. Hopefully I won't be needing any legal help in the future, but if I did this is the firm I would use. I highly recommend them!

Professional Attorney - Criminal Case
I found myself needing an attorney to represent me in a criminal case a few days before my trial date. I called Mr. Andrade's office and his staff immediately connected me to the attorney who was off-site, for a phone consultation. Without hesitation, he answered all my questions and assured me that he could still assist me on such short notice. He expressed a genuine interest in my case and immediately began to work for me. Everything he communicated was accurate and reassuring. I felt extremely confident in his representation in court and the guidance I received for any decision I needed to make. Mr. Andrade and his staff are professional, helpful and kind. They do not have the sign here, pay here attitude that some other firms and attorneys have. In fact, I received a follow up from the attorney, stating he was pleased with the outcome of my case and offered to assist me again, if I ever needed his services.

Recommendation
Prior to hiring this law firm I did not believe that lawyers could be compassionate or trustworthy. My interactions with attorneys in the past were always gloomy to say the least. The atmosphere at Mr Andrade's office was always warm & friendly. He always took the time to answer any questions or concerns I had about the case to put my mind at ease. I really believed that he cared about my case and he never made me feel like I was just another payday...it was like talking to a friend. So, if you are looking for a lawyer who is dedicated and cares about his clients, I would recommend you go with Mr Octavio Dionycio Andrade.

Lawyer Octavio Andrade was very helpful. Going through divorce is not easy, but when you have a great lawyer on your side things can't go wrong. I am thankful I had him as my lawyer, and definitely use his service again if I have to. I would strongly recommend his services to my family and friends.

Grateful to attorney Andrade for his guidance, support and generosity.
I'm extremely grateful to attorney Andrade for his guidance, support and generosity in helping my mother on her case. From the very beginning Andrade was generous with his time, gave us advise and was very helpful explaining the procedures of the case in Spanish and English to us. We were very happy with the results of the case and we will always be grateful to Andrade and his team at Attorney Andrade Law Firm for thoroughly explaining every step and getting us through it. I highly recommend attorney Andrade because I am sure he will do an excellent job for you! God bless and thank y'll again!

Great Attorney and Great Team
Well for me I met Attorney Andrade through a recommendation from a friend while I was in jail. Ive never broke a law in my life and one night got into a heated argument. The other guy lied about what happened and next thing I know the police were at my door arresting me for what was considered Domestic Violence, even though it wasn't a domestic setting. To this day I don't understand that but it basically broke down to assault in a dwelling against another guy I knew. It was a false charge and a completely bogus arrest but there was nothing I could do about it. Cops weren't going to listen to me, I tried actually and they didnt. In jail I was calling desperately for help but it was the middle of the night and was mainly getting answering machines from other law offices in the phone book. A friend recommended Attorney Andrade and when I called the guy answered. It was the middle of the night and he answered, took my info, kept me calm and showed up first thing to get ready for my arraignment in front of the judge. Now even though I wasn't a risk to anyone, and hadn't broken the law before because the cops labeled as a domestic violence the judge wanted to keep me in jail or as the argument went on he wanted to put on a high bail amount. I didnt have to say anything at all, Attorney Andrade spoke to the judge, defended me and go me a PTR (which I was told it was a pre-trial release) so I didnt have to pay anything. I was released and went home. A few days later I went to Andrade's law office and met his team. His office manager Erika helped me with the paperwork and explained to me everything I needed to do. They also helped me with the payments and Attorney Andrade sat down with me to work on my defense. he kept reassuring me that he had my back as I was still scared since Ive never been through anything remotely like this before. He kept me calm throughout the process and kept reminding me my life wasn't over. A few weeks went by and I got a call from Attorney Andrade telling me that my case was dismissed and all charges were dropped. Thats when it sunk in what happened, what could have happened to me and what I could have lost. Domestic violence and assault charges in Florida are scary. Worst it was for a bogus charge, Attorney Andrade was able to get it completely thrown out and removed from my record so it doesn't penalize me in future background checks. Ive been coming back to him for other business as well, from help with a speeding ticket to helping me with business as well. The team in his offices are really nice and caring people. They are always sweet to me and anyone else that come in. Very professional and knowledgeable. The attorney was prompt when getting back to me if I called in and he really helped me out a lot. Avoiding like crazy ever being in that type of situation again but he did help me avoid this one so Im thankful. I would highly recommend Attorney Andrade if you are looking for a great lawyer.

Outstanding legal service provided
Attorney Andrade represented me in a complicated case involving one of my neighbors. He is a very smart and compassionate attorney who knows his stuff. He was always available on the phone/email and responded to my queries promptly. Above all he is a great human being who genuinely cares for his clients. I would highly recommend his firm and services to any of my friends and family.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Octavio. It's never fun to get into situations where you need a lawyer, but if you do he is the one to call. Gave me such a sense of comfort that I was in the best hands. He communicated with my family and I in such a way that I knew he was in my corner at a very difficult time. I'll never forget that feeling. Excellent attorney!
