Excellent Information
Attorney De Groot lent me some valuable information regarding the steps facing a Probationer held in County Jail awaiting the first step. My question directly related to when a Probationer can ask for a Public Defender. Thank you Mr. De Groot.

Extremely Helpful
I have an out of state issue I'm trying to resolve. Robert took my call on a weekend ( not that Im suggestion you call him at all hours ). He gave me some really good advice. Even though I turned out to be out of his area he took over an half an hr of his time to answer my question even though he already knew he would not be the best person to take my case because of his geographic location. I've talked to several lawyers today and i can say without a doubt if your complications are in his area call this man first

Awesome Attorney
Jason helped me with an injunction case and was successful. Case was dismissed. This will help in another related case. I recommend this attorney!

Helpful and knowledgeable
I had a bit of a issue with a the NY ticket transferring to FL, in how NY and FL interact. Mr. Groot was able to point me in the right direction after a week of calling lawyers and DMV looking for answers.

Excellent Attorney!
This lawyer helped me through a dependency case in which I was wrongfully accused. I got my children back and the children are happier than ever. Had a great Christmas with all the help the community provided during some hard economic times - all thanks to Jason. I would always recommend him.

Outstanding....Reliable and REASONABLE
Mr. De Groot has been an incredible help to me. He is honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Unlike past experiences with "Lawyers" that have been far from pleasant, Mr. de Groot honestly cares and puts his all into every case. He's helped me twice just in the past 6 months. I'd hate to be his adversary in the courtroom. He is very reasonable and I suggest you give him a call.

Mr. De Groot is incredibly well versed in numerous aspects of the law. He has provided invaluable services in numerous civil cases as well as probate proceedings. When I have a legal situation that requires assistance, he is only a phone call away and will bend over backwards to assist. He is extremely affordable and has a can and will DO attitude. Simply put, I highly recommend him. I have used his services on numerous occasions and will continue to do so for a very very long time. 5 stars.

Mr deGroot has been my lawyer for 20 years. As a business man this relationship would have never lasted this long had he not been qualified to handle both business and personal legal affairs. I have found him very competent in matters pertaining to law. He comes highly reccomened from me.

Prompt but rude
While his answer was prompt, it was as if he hadn't actually read the question. I believe my question was very clear with enough explanation and the answer desired was one in the general sense. I asked about a "FL child pick up order" and he responded "why are you asking florida attorneys about an out of state order "
Response from R. Jason de Groot September 29, 2017
This person had no consultation with me, and is not a client. If I made a mistake in answering his post, that could be easily corrected. Instead, this person calls me rude.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2000.

Admonishment issued in FL, 2000
updated on 06/26/2012

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

R. Jason's comment: “A private reprimand for not getting out to the jail quick enough to speak with a criminal client. Got him a great deal too.”
