Mr. Pennington's extensive expertise and fierce effort were essential to the success of my case. His dedication was unquestionable, and his work ethic was relentless. He accurately set my expectations and was consistently available to assist with any questions or concerns I had throughout the process.
When in court, he aggressively defended my case and emerged victorious. I would highly recommend Mr. Pennington to any individuals looking for a dynamic, motivated, ambitious attorney who truly represents his client's best interests.

4 years ago I thought. I would never get out of the attempted murder charge that was pended on me and that I would never see my future and hope was gone. The day I ran into him he was assigned to my case and I'm telling you it was like touched by an angel because me and my fiance had prayed and hoped for better days and we recievd it and it happened to be chris Pennington. From day 1 he insured me that everything would be okay and to just put my trust in him so I did. Its not easy beating a case when you are a young Black male and Have an appearance to be ganster. Throughout all the 4 months I sat in jail I had so much pain and he helped me afterwards to overcome that. I KNEW I WAS INNOCENT But I was shooken by the prosecution and with chris by my side I felt like lil wayne with no worries. He is truly an inspiration. I never went back to that life After he help me beat my trial. The best layer and public defender in Orlando and without him I would still be behind the bars serving a life sentence. If your reading this Please call he is a miracle worker....I would like to Thank him and hope he reads this and much love to his firm.

As I went through the list of things to review for Mr. Pennington, I did not have to hesitate for even a moment before clicking on the highest score I could give him.
I hired Mr. Pennington as my lawyer for my divorce proceedings. At no time did I ever feel as though he was not completely on my side and with my best interests at his full attention. He made a rather stessful situation pretty much a breeze!
I would gladly recommend him to anyone who needs someone who is not afraid to speak up for you during a time that you really need one!

Mr. Pennington is a true fighter! He is a tireless advocate for his clients. Additionally, his legal research and excellent motions are used by fellow generations of attorneys years after he moved on and started his own law practice.
