Attorney Jose Rivas
Attorney Jose Rivas is a man who genuinely cares for his clients. He consulted me and spent several hours helping me with nothing in return. I cannot express the gratitude I have to find a man of such great character. It is immensely refreshing to have been served by an attorney with his interests being helping me, and not just adding to the bottom line. I am truly grateful!

Great Representation
Jose and his team are absolutely the best bang for your buck when it comes to hiring a law firm. They treat their clients as family and always fight for the truth! I’m extremely Thankful for all they did. Truth prevails but only when you have a great team that is passionate about the law and truly care about their clients!

Attorney Rivas is top of the line in what he does. He got my case handle in a good manner, his assistant was wonderful plus I never had to go to court. At the end my case got dismissed by the state attorney. Thanks Mr. Rivas. Highly recommend!!

Excellent lawyer 100%
My experience with The Rivas Law Firm was amazing.I was referred to his office by one of my friends. I live in West Palm Beach and Mr. Rivas took my case and he did everything to ensure all evidence was presented, at the end my case was dropped. He really fights for your vindication and freedom!
