Amazing Attorney
I am a nurse who unfortunately went through a situation that would’ve ended my career and I reached out to Mr Flynn who came to my rescue. Not once did I have a doubt in my mind that I was going to be behind bars or even lose my career that I worked hard for. To be honest I don’t think I would want any other lawyer. The proof is in the pudding!

I've used Mr. Flynn twice. Once in 2016 and the past year in 2022. I was so scared, unsure what would happen both times. When I had issues the second time I knew I needed to call Trey right away. He is the best in my opinion. Both times he got my cases handled quickly and fairly. He keeps you informed on your case the entire time, and does everything in his power to get the best outcome for his clients. If you're looking for a good criminal defense attorney, look no further. Trey is your guy! Thank you so much Trey for everything!

Compassionate and Professional
I sought Trey to defend my teenage son who has been in and out of trouble for the past several years. After consulting with several attorneys, Trey stood from the others because he was genuine, honest, and compassionate. I felt that despite the circumstance, he did not judge and sought not only to defend my son, but to help me through the process as well.

Trey Flynn helped me through a lengthy case. We both knew that the charges against me were based on lies and fraud, and he kept fighting to have those charges dropped pre-trial. At various hearings, Trey displayed great intelligence, legal knowledge and strategy by applying all the facts of the case into a brilliant line of questioning that made it obvious to everyone that the other party was lying. It actually blew me away watching him work in the courtroom. It was like watching a movie. His staff and co-workers (Shari and Brittany) were also very helpful and kind. 10/10

A blessing
I unfortunately had my life turned upside down and needed help from a lawyer. Right from the beginning nejame law and Trey Flynn were not only a help but a saving grace and blessing. He made my whole process feel a lot easier and a lot less stressful. He made very good decisions and always consulted me and my family. He made us all feel like everything is ok. I'm truly thankful for Trey Flynn and everyone at nejame law for there steadfast and effective work they do.

You're in good hands with Trey Flynn
We hired Mr. Flynn to represent our daughter in a domestic battery case. We had previously booked a trip for her to get away from the jerk she was dating. Her flight was booked for the day after the incident. I asked the officers about her trip and was told she would be in jail and would not be going. Fortunately, we had the best attorney possible. Mr. Flynn got her out on bond just in time to get her to the airport for her flight. It was so helpful for her to get away from the situation for 10 days. The ex-boyfriend also filed a restraining order against her, so Mr. Flynn represented us in that case as well. A "deal" was offered by his attorney to accept 1 year under the restraining order. Mr. Flynn advised us not to take it, which we didn't. The next day, the ex-boyfriend didn't show for the injunction hearing, so the restraining order was dropped. Finally, 113 days after her arrest, the state dropped the criminal charges. I'm very thankful that Mr. Flynn represented our daughter. I know he was lobbying the prosecutor's office with her side of the story. I'm also very thankful that he put up with this very worried mom. Nobody in our family has ever been arrested. We had no clue how all of this worked (outside of Law & Order). He always responded quickly to our questions and concerns. I also glad he didn't charge me per text! Actually, I think what we paid was very fair. I was concerned about the costs. Up front, we were told how much we would be charged. I was worried about hidden costs, but there were no additional charges. Everything was completely transparent. Don't take it wrong, Mr. Flynn, but I hope we never see you again ;-)

Trey was absolutely fantastic and helpful with all of his services. He surpassed my expectations. I hoped for a particular sentence and trey went above and beyond to achieve a better sentence, which was way better than what I expected. I highly recommend him to anyone needing legal services. If I ever need legal services again I will most definitely return to him.

The Best Attorney there is
Being out of state, and in dire need of legal representation for a young family member facing serious, but questionable, charges, I am grateful for receiving a referral to NeJame Law, as that is how I found attorney Joseph “Trey” Flynn. Before I even actually met Mr. Flynn, he proved 100%, he was the attorney that I wanted to represent my family member. Mr. Flynn goes above and beyond for his clients, is committed to providing superior legal representation and has the experience and legal expertise to defend a client in even the most serious matters. He is compassionate, listens intently and patiently, offers the best, most honest and reliable advice he can, and helps his clients stay focused by being realistic. I truly believe in my heart that if we had not been represented by Trey Flynn, that our case would have ended much differently. I highly recommend Mr. Flynn, and if I, or anyone I know, require legal representation in the future, I will not hesitate to call on him.

Very happy with his process and results
Joseph was able to get me out of an ongoing (3year) case I seemed to be stuck in. Orange co was making me jump thru hoops to get this over with, always wanting me to do something else and pay more money. Once I told him I wasn’t able to keep up with their demands anymore, Joseph understood, stepped up and within a couple months, my charge was dropped to a way lesser offense and it’s finally over. Would definitely call him if his services are needed again.

"I worked with "Trey" for several years, and I would not hesitate to recommend Trey for any criminal case. Trey is very intelligent, articulate, and he is well respected by judges, opposing counsel, and his colleagues in the criminal defense field here in Central Florida. Trey has vast experience in criminal defense, with the bulk of his years being spent handling extremely serious charges. Trey puts an enormous amount of time and effort into every aspect of his cases because he cares about his client's cases and the outcome. The Florida Bar requires attorneys to zealously advocate for clients; Trey exceeds that with every case."

"I was first introduced to Joseph (better known to me as Trey) at a trial training conference in St. Pete Florida. I had attended them before and would attend them again. Seldom does any presenter or participant present with enough enthusiasm to keep his colleagues engaged. As I sat slouched in my chair one early morning of the training session, I was forced to perk up. I heard a boisterous voice roar across the room as an attorney began his mock opening statement. The voice was that of Trey Flynn. I, along with all of my colleagues were left with little choice but to focus on his opening statement. I ultimately befriended Trey and watched as he grew into a formidable attorney. Outside of the courtroom, he has also conducted himself with great compassion for his community. He is a powerful and compassionate ally to have in your corner, and without hesitation, I endorse Trey Flynn."
Violent crime Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Flynn is a fantastic criminal defense attorney. Some lawyers may say they're not afraid of trial, but haven't been to trial in 15 years. If you want a trial, he will take you to trial, and most likely win. I don't even know how many jury trials he has under his belt these days, but he's board certified as a criminal defense attorney, which is very difficult to achieve. Oftentimes, I ask Mr. Flynn's advice on sticky legal matters, and his perspective and breadth of knowledge is fresh air. I endorse this gentleman for his knowledge, zealous representation, and skills inside and outside of the courtroom."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

After obtaining a job at the Orange County State Attorney's Office, I had the pleasure of being assigned to a trial division opposite of then public defender Joseph Flynn. I have witnessed Mr. Flynn litigate numerous motions and jury trials, and observed the great skill with which he advocates for his clients. Mr. Flynn distinguishes himself among his peers in the legal community by providing astute legal advice, adhering to all ethical cannons, and showing true compassion for his clients. I endorse Mr. Flynn as a top-caliber criminal defense attorney."
