About Seth

Learn Seth’s areas of practice.

Former Prosecutor. Orlando Native. Exclusively Criminal Defense. Call or email to schedule a consultation.

I am a native Orlandoan whose family first put down roots here 40 years ago. Back then, Orlando was still a small town mostly surrounded by orange groves, a place where neighbors knew each other by name and kids played with their friends in the neighborhood or on the school playground shooting hoops. I had the privilege of attending Lake Sybelia Elementary, Maitland Middle, and Edgewater High School and served this community as an Assistant State Attorney for Orange County. As a prosecutor, I was named one of the top government/non-profit attorney's in Florida by the leading business publication Florida Trend Magazine.

When I was a prosecutor in Orange County, my goal was to pursue justice for the public and now as a criminal defense attorney, my only pursuit is justice for the accused. I am committed exclusively to the practice of criminal law so my clients know that all of my knowledge, experience, and passion is devoted to fighting for their freedom. One of the most important benefits of having an attorney is being able to reach them every time you have a question. I charge a flat fee so whether you have one question, or a million questions, I am available 24/7 to give you answers and some peace of mind during this difficult time.

​I earned my law degree in San Francisco, CA at Golden Gate School of Law, studying under the legendary civil rights lawyer and Philadelphia Assistant Public Defender, Bernie Segal. Prior to law school I graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. Now I am a criminal defense practitioner advocating for the rights of those accused of crimes throughout Central Florida. My prior experience as an Assistant State Attorney has given me insight into how the prosecution will view the case and relationships to facilitate the negotiation of plea agreements that are beneficial to my clients. When negotiation isn't getting anywhere, I know when it's time to go to trial!

The best I ever had
Seth was by far very informative and very knowledgeable when it came to my case he didn’t over promise neither under promise he knew exactly what to do and how to do it he gave me the security I needed when I was facing the hardest time in my life he was right there I didn’t have to show up to any court dates During the process I felt very passionate that I was going to come out the other end ok and still have my life in my hands I will choose him anyday and he understood my situation and charged me half the price he normally does for a case similar to the one I had and I didn’t have to take it to trial at that.. I would highly recommend him for any criminal case he can answer all the questions you would think nobody could possibly know take my word and choose Seth he is well worth your time and money.

My e pass tickets
Seth was amazing with my situation. I had some big tickets with e pass that had been from years ago, e pass made things tough, they really tried to do a number on me to pay all this money I did not even know I had , some I fought them on because I paid the fee, but e pass insisted on taking more. Needless to say I hired Seth and man , all I can say is thank you. He got all those tickets dismissed, but one. It was a very small amount. He was easily accessible, I definitely would use him , if I needed to.

Fantastic lawyer
After getting the runaround from other attorneys on a simple Orange County money making ticket, Mr Hyman who answered his own telephone was incredibly knowledgeable about the ifs and what's of the case. He goes through step by step with you and jumps right in from the start taking care of it. Wish I had more hands so I could give him many thumbs up. I very highly recommend him.

Excellent Choice
Seth was recommended to me by a mutual friend. He listened to my concerns and I decided to hire him. Seth was honest and was not afraid to tell me what was required, giving the hard truth at times. I would highly recommend him as someone who does not feed you BS but has your back. I would personally like to than him for his efforts.

Honest, Knowledgeable, Hardworking
Mr. Hyman is a rare kind of attorney as in he enjoys practice of law and winning his cases. Mr. Hyman arms himself with relevant governing law, then from position of strength negotiates with the other side. Seth got my case dismissed! I feel incredibly lucky to have found him on the internet and hired him.

Does the impossible
I could not have chosen a better lawyer to represent me for a misdemeanor charge. I was in a very delicate situation, and I needed to have a specific outcome that would not affect my immigration status or destroy my career and Mr. Hyman was able to get me the best possible outcome given my circumstances, one that I am very happy with and grateful for.

“The Best Federal Deal Breaker”
Mr. Hyman came as an Angel from God for me and my family when Federal Authorities came hard on us, he stand by us and contact the United States Attorney immediately and going back and forth with them to justify my sides of fact and negotiate with the government that I was looking for. A Federal fine, amount of $100 Dollar Only. “Breaking Deal”, if any one need a Federal Attorney, who can stand by you when people need the most— in a heart beat I asked you to Contact Attorney Seth Hyman, he is the man that has scoped me out of a whole that I could be in big trouble by Fed. Thank You Mr Hyman, you are a angel from a God, who was created to be protect people.

Mr. Seth, You earned my respect, I went in with the GPS tracker, and came out without it.... it took months////// thank GOD not years. When we went in front of the judge with 4 charges, the MAIN ONE was dropped (Rocketiring) and after completing a 3 year program, which is not bad as it sounds we all need a change in our lives, an last but important that the remainder of my last 3 charges will be dropped I was facing years.... Great work thank you very much happy with this attorney....

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Hyman was very diligent and hard-working throughout my court case. He was very good about communicating results and was not in a hurry while on the phone. While I am not an attorney, I believe he is highly skilled in his profession. I do not hesitate to recommend Mr. Hyman to help with your defense.

It's imperative to hire the right attorney for YOU!
If you need professional, competent representation for your defense in a criminal proceeding, LOOK NO FURTHER! Seth is an extremely qualified attorney who handles all client interactions with the utmost respect and compassion. He is very responsive, when you call his number (and he is available), HE answers, not a paralegal or secretary. Without the overhead of larger law firms, he maintains very reasonable retainer fees for his services. Seth will be there, WITH YOU, keeping you informed through every step of the process. He will engage and solicit your input in order to ensure he understands all the detail. I cannot say enough great things about Seth and the way he relates to clients, witnesses, prosecutors and even judges. An absolute GEM in a sea of attorneys!!! Put your mind at ease, hire Seth and let him do his thing, I honestly feel you won't be disappointed.

Hiring Seth Hyman for your defence
My wife contacted Mr. Hyman on the night of my arrest and he walked her through the many steps of what comes next. Within hours she had explained to me all of the steps. After my release from custody I decided to hire him as my lawyer because he was extremely professional and gave me immediate confidence in understanding where I stood legally and the charges I was facing which were serious. He didn't make any promises on outcomes but did assure me that he understood the steps that we would take through resolution of the arrest. He always showed great support, both legally and emotionally and pushed back if I recommended something that would not help my case. As it turned out, and just as Mr. Hyman had stated may happen, the arresting charges were not pursued by the prosecution and they were dismissed. Hiring Mr. Hyman was a great emotional balance to the chaos that criminal charges bring to anyone especially those of us who have never had to deal with the legal system. I was extremely pleased with the outcome and his support and immediate availability every time I tried to reach him. I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire him.

Mr Hyman is hands down the best attorney I have ever met.
From day one My Hyman treated me like a human being and was very considerate and passionate about helping me resolve my matter and get my life back. He stays on top of everything he is supposed to do, maintains communication and even worked with me on the payments. If i could have gave Seth Hyman and 20 star rating I would. If you want a lawyer that is going to treat you with dignity and see your case through to the end, you HAVE to hire Seth Hyman. Thank you Seth!!!

Great consultation on a misdemeanor case
I can highly recommend Seth Hymans law firm. I had a few questions regarding a misdemeanor case and from a bunch of other law firm’s Seth was not only the first one who got back to me, he also offered to give a free consultation to answer my concerns and questions beforehand. He was friendly and supportive and I just felt that I was in capable hands. I would definitely recommend Set Hyman to anyone who seeks advice on all things related to criminal law.

Professional, Competitive, Informative and list goes on.
I was visiting Florida with family for Disney and got a ticket on our last day there. I found Seth on Avvo and he assured me I didn’t have to worry and he would take care of court and all the legalities. It was a pressure off my shoulder and I can’t thank Seth enough. Too bad I can’t give more than 5 stars :)
