The magic man!! Forever grateful
Throughout this challenging process in my life, Ladan law always had my best interest in mind. Amir showed not only professionalism, but showed me trust, care and honesty. I will always be grateful for the relationship I gained and feeling of calmness throughout this process. Amir and his team always kept me up to date in a timely fashion and I could always count on the expert advice given. I could not possibly be any happier with the results and will be forever thankful for how smooth he made this process. THANK YOU AMIR AND TEAM!!

PERSONABLE AND ATTENTIVE
Mr. Ladan helped a friend of mine and came highly recommended so I engaged his law firm to help with an issue. The one thing that stood out above everything was how he was personally involved with our communication. I sent an email that I wanted to speak with him at his convenience and within five minutes I received a phone call from Amir personally. At the end of my case, I sent Amir an email late on a Friday evening and later that night received a reply. He successfully completed my case and I would DEFINITELY hire the Ladan Law Firm again if ever needed.

Ms.
Mr. Ladan is very responsive and very helpful. He responds quickly and he is very passionate about his clients. He took the time to review a contract for me to make sure the State was not abusing their power and making me to adhere to something that was not apart of my agreement. Before he did that I was restricted to Orange county and I am not on probation. He met with me on several occasions I wasn't passed off to a paralegal, when I called if he wasn't available he always called right back. He made me feel like I was his only client, very personalized service. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of his service. He is always great to have a skilled professional on your side and who knows when and how to be aggressive.

Knowledgeable and caring lawyer
I had a question regarding felony legalities that I was not educated on... He was a repeat felony with gun charges and I was scared because the scenario had to do with me and my safety is at stake. I don't know any criminal lawyers and so I was browsing thru and came across Avvo and as I was browsing thru lawyers, I came across Amir Ladan's picture and he seemed very warm and inviting, someone whom you could ask a question and you wouldn't feel stupid... I asked Mr. Ladan about the F2 & F3 felony charges and the prison time they hold. Mr. Ladan was very caring and sensitive to me in regards to my story, he was very knowledgeable and I didn't have trouble comprehending his answer. He was very informative and caring at the same time. If I lived in Orlando, Florida and could afford Mr. Ladan I would definitely makes sure he was MY or any friends/family members lawyer.

Highly recommended!!
My son had gotten in trouble and was hit with many charges. As a mother, I felt helpless and that's when I began to Google best attorney in town and came across Amir Ladan. I remember calling him after hours close to midnight. He answered my call and we spoke briefly and I told him I would call him back. Well sure enough I felt I could trust my LIFE with Amir, and went ahead and hired him for my son. Amir explained everything he was going to do and always kept me and my son informed. If either of us had a question there was no hesitation to call him. Amir delivered and executed in the courtroom. Mind you I hired him 4x!! If you need an attorney I highly recommend Amir. He's worth every dollar I promise. Remember when hiring an attorney remember your life is in the attorney's hands. Thank you again, Amir and your whole staff! Gina

Falsely Accused
I needed to hire a lawyer and was referred to Amir Ladan by another family law attorney. Mr. Ladan was professional, personable and very experienced in the law and the system. He advised me very well and my case where I was falsely accused was dismissed by the state. I would highly recommend Amir Ladan if needed for his expertise.

Best lawyer ever! 5 stars is not justice!
Words cannot express how greatful my family and I are for Mr. Ladan! I had a very complicated case where I was facing multiple charges and a very difficult prosecutor. Amir Ladan and his associate worked long hours preparing my case for trial. What they were able to do for me was nothing short of a miracle!! I am still in disbelief at the outcome of my case. Mr. Amir Ladan I can't thank you enough for giving me my life back.

Very, very happy with Amir and his staff!
Amir used his knowledge and familiarity with the Seminole County Courts to restructure a court ordered drug rehab program in Ocala, substituting that requirement with a local IOP program. His staff did a great job of communicating throughout the process so that we knew what was happening and what was next.

Excellent Legal Representation
Amir Ladan was hired to defend me for battery charges in a domestic violence situation. Although the police cited me as both a defendant and victim - police charged me with battery . Amir Ladan provided me Excellent legal representation and ultimately had the charges removed from my record. I am completely satisfied and would give Amir Ladan a five star recommendation to anyone who may find themselves in need of a criminal defense lawyer . Thank You Amir

Excellent Law Firm
Mr. Laden handled my case exceptionally well. With extenuating circumstances preventing me from being in town, he prevented me from having to make any appearances and ensured all paperwork was handled from my remote location with ease. He was always kind and empathetic towards my situation and took the time to get to know me, as well as took the time to address any of my concerns, and was always easily accessible to stay in communication with. I would highly recommend Laden Law for any level of legal assistance required.

Best criminal lawyer in Florida!
Mr.Ladan is a very knowledgeable attorney and has been in the industry for many many years thus, making him knowledgeable, confident and powerful. My time dealing with the Ladan law firm was very emotional due to my pending case but the outcome was above satisfactory as it should be, it was relieving! Amir knew exactly what to do and when to do it. He defended and fought for me, his client. He is a very aggressive criminal attorney and straight to the point and this is the advocate you need on your side, an aggressive negotiator with the opposition; true criminal defense. God forbid I have another criminal case but this is how much trust I will put in Amir's hands, I will always choose his firm and refer anyone I know. Hire with knowledge and this is the knowledge, the Ladan law firm. The Best Criminal Lawyer In Orlando Florida

Exceeded our expectations
Our son needed legal representation regarding a misdemeanor. Ladan Law firm was recommended. Amir met with us and explained the process and how he was going to handle the case. EVERYTHING he said he would do came true for a favorable outcome. I know for a fact this would not be the result without Amir’s tenacious and persistent approach. This charge was a potential deal breaker in our son’s career so a lot was riding on the outcome. He was ALWAYS available to answer questions and his communication was superb. In fact the first night I left a message he was on vacation and even gave a return call. Who does that? Our whole family is thankful for Amir and the whole team. He is well connected in the legal community and I think that helped us as well.

Thank You Amir
Thank you Amir! From the first day of my consultation I knew I had the right person for the job. Thank you for representing my son at a time we had no clue on what to do next. Amir gave me a sense of relieve knowing he would walk this journey with me. He is an excellent, skillful, compassionate, honest lawyer and was always there when my son and I needed his advice or support. Even on our toughest days he was very patient and understanding. He always kept us informed and made sure he explained the logistics in a way we could understand. He never left a question unanswered. He kept in contact with us very regularly and throughout the whole process, which gave me a peace of mind. I cannot express how grateful I am for The Ladan Law Firm! Their assistance, professionalism and genuine concern during this rough time will never be forgotten. He has not only become my go-to lawyer but my friend. If I could give a higher rating I would, YOU’RE THE MAN, AMIR!!!! Once again, Thank you!!!! Lee ;-)

Very professional and willing to listen
I needed a quick consultation on criminal scam artists using my name and posing as Federal Drug Enforcement Agents to extort money out of me. I explained to him what had happened and he quickly confirmed that it truly was a scam. It helps to have someone you can trust and can put you at ease.
