Phillip Arroyo is a criminal defense trial attorney in Florida. He holds a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Florida A&M College of Law and was selected to serve in the 2012 White House Internship where he worked within the office of the Vice President of the United States analyzing domestic and economic issues.

In 2019, Arroyo was recruited to the Appellate Division of the Office of the Public Defender for the 7th Judicial Circuit of Florida. This office represents the indigent with their criminal appeals within Florida's 5th District Court of Appeals which handles all criminal appeals for the the 5th Judicial Circuit, the 7th Judicial Circuit, the 9th Judicial Circuit, the 10th judicial circuit and the 18th Judicial Circuit. Mr. Arroyo authored over 12 appellate briefs and obtained reversals for his clients. After his time handling criminal appeals, he served within the trial divisions of Volusia County and Seminole County where he handled thousands of cases from arrest to jury trial and gained extensive experience handling both felonies and misdemeanors throughout his career. During his time at the 18th judicial circuit, Arroyo was assigned as lead defense counsel to represent defendants before the Veterans Court, a diversionary program for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces accused of crimes due to substance abuse and mental health issues such as PTSD.

In April of 2021, Mr. Arroyo was appointed by the President of the Florida Bar to the Committee on Governmental and Public Policy and the the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion and remains an active contributing member of the Florida Bar and the legal profession in Florida.

Arroyo is originally from the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico where he served as Special Assistant to the island's Democratic Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 and he was also appointed by the Republican Governor of Puerto Rico to the island's Advisory Board on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in 2009. He was also appointed to the Puerto Rico Interagency Committee on Illegal Gun Trafficking by the Secretary of State of Puerto Rico in 2010. He is on record at the United Nations where he has testified on multiple occasions in regard to Puerto Rico's political status with the United States.

Arroyo Law Firm
First and foremost I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Arroyo and staff for their professionalism and immediate response and support for my daughter's case. Although this was my first experience using a firm here in Florida the level of representation my daughter received was A++! I would recommend this firm 100 percent.

My Story
Phil is absolutely the BEST lawyer you could ever have! I was at the lowest point in my life when I met Phil, and He assured me everything was going to be okay and He Delivered being an instrument from God. He is one of the most Genuine people I have ever met and He Cares about you personally; which is very rare in this industry. He understands exactly what you may be feeling or going through because He too had to go through very wrongful similar circumstances. Not many lawyers can say that. This system is unfair and Injust at times, but Phil is the Bright spot that truly fights for you and what’s right. Him and Mrs. Arroyo are the best tag team in the STATE and I’m sure in time will be Nationally! I would 100% recommend hiring them! It doesn’t matter if it’s 3am in the morning, they will pick up the phone and go to work. They truly take that burden of stress away from you. All they ask is that you chill and Call Phil. Just like myself, you too will be very happy you did!

Great Representation
Highly recommend Phillip and the team at Arroyo law firm. He was extremely helpful and communicative through the whole process. Not only a great guy, but a great lawyer for dealing with the county court system in negotiating a deal to get all charges dropped.

Family of the accused
We hired attorney Phil Arroyo a year ago as my family was facing a traumatic experience due to a false allegation. Phil was so attentive and clear about our rights and his commitment to getting justice for us. He held our hand throughout the process and month by month updated us on status and progress. Phil ensured we received the best outcome available and now we can finally close this horrible chapter. You will not find a more experienced and ethical attorney. He is diligent and persistent for his clients best interests. My family can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done and your unending support! God Bless you and your family!!

Fast, knowledgeable and reliable
Hands down the best service I've encountered with a legal matter on a weekend. Mr. Arroyo was quick in responding to our need on a DUI case. He resolved the matter quickly and worked his magic on having my friend released. Thank you Mr Arroyo and staff. Also thanks to Allstar Bail Bonds.

Professional, Reliable Attorney
I couldn't ask for a better attorney, when situations arise unexpectedly and you find yourself in a life changing experience, you have to be able to trust blindly to a professional like Phillip and his team. They answered in the middle of the holiday season to be exact on New Years eve. He took the time to visit me in person in jail multiple times and fight to get the best deal for me. I will be eternally grateful to him and his group.
