Amazing Lawyer!
I called around to talk to a bunch of lawyers on my case. A lot of them told me what they thought I wanted to hear. How can any lawyer promise to make a case go away? That seems really shady. Mr. Witt was up front with me. He told me the pros and cons of my case, and said he would do his best, but that he couldn't make a promise. That sounded a lot more honest to me than someone promising the sky to get my money. Sure enough, Mr. Witt did an amazing job, and I was very satisfied with the outcome. I will send all my friends and family to him.

Best in town!!!
In my opinion, when it comes to criminal defense, Mr. Witt, is the best and I’m not just saying this because he helped me win my case. Mr. Witt’s vast legal knowledge and experience was astonishing. If there is a way to help you win, he will undoubtably find it. His impeccable wisdom and skill in the courtroom, along with his fighting spirit, is inspiring to watch. I would rather not trust anyone else with my legal needs. I want to make the community aware that if you are facing criminal or civil charges whether large or small and want the best opportunity to win your case, Jonathan Witt, is the man to hire. Thank you again Mr. Witt

Took care of buisness..and gave good results.
Mr. Witt took care of business for me, from A to Z. He explained everything to me, broke everything down and we pressed on to the victory! When in the Court Room, he stepped up with back bone and talked faced to face with the State Attorney and got results.. Results that stringed out a outcome of victories in my life for the past several years and it continues to go on and on! But yes, this young man took care of buisness from start to finish.. And the results was what one always ask for, victory. Sincerely, Christopher L.

Fantastic Criminal Defense Attorney!
When my daughter got arrested, I had a panic attack. She's never been in trouble before, and I didn't know what to do. One phone call to Mr. Witt and I could sleep again. He explained everything that was happening clearly, and answered all of our questions. Everything worked out for my daughter, thanks to his hard work. Thank you so much Mr. Witt!

A trustworthy lawyer!
I am forever grateful for the help that I received from Mr. Witt. He is such a knowledgable lawyer, but he also takes the time to "dumb it down" for the people who did not go to Law School. He's been nothing short of great in helping us and we are genuinely thankful for all his time and effort. Thank you, Mr. Witt. Your help was appreciated more than you'll ever know.

Superb
I was referred to Jonathon by a former professor of mine. He is extremely professional, has fair prices, and is with you every step of the way.

Absolutely Spectacular!
Mr. Witt succeeded in helping me understand all the legal terminology I was getting bombarded with as well as succeeding in keeping me safe and sound.

Jonathan Witt Saved My Life!!!!
I was looking at years in prison for something I really didn't do, which would have basically been a death sentence. Mr. Witt was amazing! He took my case and fought hard for me. If it wasn't for him I know I would be in prison right now. He was always easy to talk to and answered all my many questions. Thank you for everything Mr. Witt!

Highly Recommended Criminal Defense Lawyer
Jonathan Witt did an exceptional job defending my son. He was not only professional, honest, easy to talk with but also kind and compassionate. I valued being able to talk with Jonathan one to one, you can call him anytime - no one else to deal with. He explains the situation that you can actually understand, what's happening, what could happen and what he will do to help. Jonathan Witt was with us every step of the way. I would give Jonathan more stars if I could!

Temporary Injunction Issue Solved Fast
Without getting into details of the case, I can say that Jonathan Witt helped me tremendously- not only was I found innocent of all charges, but the terms of the agreement between myself and the other party were improved in my favor. Jonathan went above and beyond, and I am extremely grateful. Sincerely -T

LEGAL ADVISEMENT
A CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER OF MINE FOUND HIMSELF NEEDING LEGAL ASSISTANCE AS HE HAD BEEN SERVED WITH SOME SERIOUS LEGAL CHARGES. BEING ASSIGNED A JOB IN FLORIDA AT THE TIME, HAVING NO RELATIVES IN FLORIDA AND MYSELF RESIDING IN NEW YORK THERE WAS WONDER TO WHO WE COULD TURN TO AND TRUST FOR HELP. ATTORNEY JONATHAN WITT WAS RECOMMENDED AND I WAS GIVEN HIS PHONE NUMBER. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS QUITE UPSET EMOTIONALLY AND VERY SCARED FOR MY FAMILY MEMBER. HOWEVER, ON MY FIRST CALL TO ATTORNEY WITT HE WAS ABLE TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE CALL WITH HIS KINDNESS, UNDERSTANDING AND NONJUDGMENTAL PERSONALITY. HE TALKED AND EXPLAINED TO ME THE OPTIONS FOR THIS CASE. HE NEVER ONCE PRESSURED ME TO USE HIS SERVICES. HE IS A VERY GOOD LISTENER AND ANSWERS EVERY QUESTION AND EXPLAINED THINGS TO ME (SOMETIMES SEVERAL TIMES) ALWAYS WITH CALM AND KINDNESS. BEING COMPASSIONATE AND HONEST, HE DIDN’T LEAD ON WITH FALSE PROMISES OR HOPE. HE FOUGHT VERY HARD FOR MY FAMILY MEMBER, LEAVING US VERY SATISFIED WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE CASE. IF YOU FIND YOU NEED LEGAL ASSISTANCE, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ATTORNEY JONATHAN WITT.

Professional, honest legal representation! A true pro with your best interest in mind!
After I was arrested for a DUI a few months ago, Mr. Witt was referred to me through someone he has worked with before. After meeting with Mr. Witt I decided based on his knowledge and experience and overall positive demeanor to hire him to represent me. Mr. Witt consistently called me to keep me posted on what was going on and honestly felt like he had my best interest in mind. Which isn't always the case with some attorneys. I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone who needs great legal representation, and doesn't already have someone lined up. I hope I never need legal representation again (obviously) but in the event I do, Mr. Witt will be my first phone call for sure!

Excellent Representation
I was fortunate to have Mr. Witt referred to me. He provided amazing criminal defense representation for a member of my family, and the outcome could not have been any better. When we first met, he explained all of the possible outcomes of our case and made us feel at ease. Throughout the case, he made a point of letting us know he was always a phone call or email away, and never made us feel hurried. He is extremely professional, compassionate and thorough. He diligently handled our case and provided us with the best outcome in such a short time, that I am amazed. I truly recommend Mr. Witt, as I am extremely satisfied with everything he has done for us.

Hired Criminal Defense Attorney Johnathan Witt through a personal referral and I can say with absolute certainty that I would hire him again. He represented me through and through...I barely missed any work due to his representation in court on my behalf...His intimate knowledge as a former prosecutor was very enlightening and put my mind at ease. The case went exactly as he predicted it would. If anyone out there needs a hands on CDA (criminal defense attorney) that actually returns phone calls almost instantly than Attorney Johnathan Witt is your guy.. Thanks John!!! Respectfully, ML (Orlando)

Do not recommend for criminal defense
Before you needlessly spend tens of thousands of dollars on a criminal defense with Mr. Witt, consider a public defender. In my case, Mr. Witt balked against going to trial, saying he didn't think he could win. In reality, the case was winnable, with far better odds than he predicted. In truth, he found it much easier to simply make a deal with a former co-worker from when he was a prosecutor. Any public defender could have made this same deal given the evidence, or lack of it. Instead of being exonerated, the result was probation and a criminal record that should never have been. Weigh your options carefully before handing over your bank account to Mr. Witt.

Response from Jonathan Witt February 29, 2016
I strongly disagree. I would like nothing more than to explain point-by-point why the above statement is so wrong, but Florida Bar RULE 4-1.6 CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION restricts me from getting into details.
