Excellent work and professionalism
Normally when one has legal problems one gets very confused and does not know how to do things or what the procedures are, a few months ago I was going through legal problems in which everything was based on lies and I was treated badly. Mr. Alexander Pearson was a helping hand in my case where I received very good advice and legal help, he is thorough and precise in his work. I take my case and I can say today that thanks to God and Attorney Alexander Pearson everything came to light thanks to his professionalism and time working in the area, I fully recommend him. Thank you Mr. Pearson for all your help. Normalmente cuando uno tiene problemas legales uno se turba mucho y no sabe como hacer las cosas o cuales son los procedimientos, hace unos meses estuve pasando por problemas legales de los cuales todo fue basado en mentiras y fui mal tratado. El Sr. Alexander Pearson fue una manos amiga en mi caso donde recibi muy buena asesoria y una ayuda legal, es minucioso y preciso en su trabajo. Tomo mi caso y puedo decir el dia de hoy que gracias a Dios y el Abogado Alexander Pearson todo salio a la luz gracias a su profecionalidad y tiempo trabajando en el area, lo recomiendo completamente. Gracias Sr. Pearson por toda su ayuda.

Amazing attorney and a great person..
For the smallest of questions that needed to be answered he took his time out of his busy days to answer them for me. Gave me the most honest and straight-up advice possible. 100% recommend him.

Life Changing Event
I was hoping the day would come that I would be free of a mistake I made a few years back. That day came today when the charges against me were dropped by the state. The only reason for this was the dedication of Mr. Alex Pearson. Mr. Pearson advocated for me and was able to help the prosecutors see I was deserving of another chance. This mistake could have been life altering and created consequences for many years to come. I followed Mr. Pearson's advice and he lead me through this journey with caring and compassion. I'm forever grateful for his guidance and support. For the first time in a while I can clearly see my future. Thank you Mr. Alex Pearson!

Great Attorney
I had a traffic matter that was very troubling to me. I retained Mr. Pearson and he explained that in fact it was a rather minor issue. He took the time to clearly and patiently describe all of the nuances of the process and showed me what my options were to resolve the matter. We chose a course of action together, he and his staff kept me well informed, were always available to answer any questions when I received correspondence and made the whole process as stress free as something like this can be. His fees were quite reasonable, as well. I hope to not need his services in the future, but it is comforting to know that I have this kind of resource available to me if I ever need it again.

A bad day.
I have made some mistakes in my life. There are many things that i regret doing. In my case, i was guilty, I definitely deserved to be punished. I turned to Alex so that I would be treated fairly. The first thing that I found different about him was that he had compassion and empathy. He eased my mind , he explained the law to me in a way that I could understand. I trusted him to go to battle for me and he did. He kept me updated on different conversations and situations. I had no idea that his job was so tangled. Ultimately, he negotiated a deal with the prosecutor that i didn't dream was possible. Thank you Alex. You're my attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
I have worked with Mr. Pearson as his Private Investigator for about 7 years and he has always provided materials timely, contacted me immediately to assist his clients and has a passion for his job. I look forward to working with him on his cases because of the dedication he has for his clients.

Waste of money
" I do not care about your peace of mind " were the exact words out of Mr. Pearson's own moth to me. From the start I never felt like Mr. Pearson was going to fight for me. Every time I asked what his strategy was for my case he never had a clear answer. After a year of working my case Mr. Pearson told me the best he could do for me was 2 years in prison followed by 5 years probation. After that my family decided to hire another attorney who immediately mentioned alternative approaches Mr. Pearson never mentioned and he did much better than Mr. Pearson. In half the time Mr. Pearson took to get me that terrible offer my new attorney got me a offer with no prison time. I'm so glad we did not keep Mr. Pearson because I would be in Prison right now if I had stayed with Mr. Pearson. Also, don't let Mr. Pearson make a big deal of his private investigator, he found nothing to help me. Other than that if you make the mistake of hiring Mr. Pearson check the clerk of court site to make sure he does what he says because I did catch Mr. Pearson lying about filing a motion he was supposed to thanks to someone on the outside I had checking the clerk of court site for me while I was incarcerated. I wish no one ever recommended Mr. Pearson to my family. After we already hired a new lawyer to replace Mr. Pearson and take on my PBL Felony case and had it closed without Mr. Pearson I began posting the above review and Mr. Pearson threatened to sue for harassment. Recently I called the police in regards to someone who did work relating to my case back when Mr. Pearson was managing it. The person I called the police in reference to did respond but apparently someone also contacted my community control officer and said I had harassed Mr. Pearson, but luckily I was able to explain to my cc officer that I did not contact Mr. Pearson for a while nor do I intend to, which was important because if I violated my program I could have been incarcerated. The sad fact is that after my Father passed away who by the way paid Mr. Pearson's fees and even went onto to hire my new lawyer Mr. Pearson decided to ban me from his law office , this was nearly right after I told him that I lost my Father. Hiring Mr. Pearson was the biggest mistake we made, fortunately we corrected that mistake with the new lawyer and that saved me from prison, but to think of how much money we lost on the other hand with Mr. Pearson is really sad. Unfortunately We had to spend so much money on a new attorney to take on my big case that we decided to allow Mr. Pearson to finish my two of my smaller cases which I'm disappointed with too because Mr. Pearson also broke his promise to apply for early terminate of my probation for those two smaller case. The only reason I did not complain to the BAR Association for Mr. Pearson refusing to apply for early termination of probation for the small cases is because my new attorney was already working the plea for my big PBL Felony case and I knew I would be on a probation like program soon anyway, but that was fine with me. After all If I had stayed with Mr. Pearson I would have gone to prison.

Response from Alexander Pearson March 11, 2021
I am going to respond to this review and in doing so I'm going to make a few points that apply to the above defamation and libelous non sense above, but also to some other points that we as criminal defense attorneys encounter consistently throughout the course of our careers. For starters let me begin by affirmatively stating that the information provided in the review is false. What is sad is that I cannot take it apart, point by point, to defend my position as I owe this person a duty of confidentiality. I would never break that oath. I am able to say that what he wrote is not true. This particular client has been copying and pasting this same dribble to other platforms as well. I thought it was best that I not copy and paste the same response and take it seriously enough to write a new response. I feel bad for him that he can't let me go. I really do, and I assure all who read this it will not end here because this is not something that this person appears to be capable of. My response the first time I saw this exact review elsewhere was a bit more in line with how public relation experts would like you to respond. everything I wrote in that response was also true. At that time I was attempting to be sensitive to with whom I am dealing. We as attorneys are instructed by these platforms to say things like "I'm sorry your experience wasn't exactly what you wanted." "Please feel free to reach out to me and we should discuss why you feel this way." It sounds nice, but all it really does is create an appearance that the attorney did something wrong and that we would love to make up for our missteps. This is not the case. Finally, I would like to take a moment to say that Public Defenders, for the most part, do a fine job. They went to law school and passed the bar exam and, again, for the most part know the law and work for the best interest of their clients. I will always tell people when they come to me and besmirch the good name of the PD's, look, they are busy. A private attorney is a luxury. We have far fewer cases and are in a position to make ourselves more available to our clients. Yes, it is true that many of us in private practice have been doing it longer than some of the PD's out there so we may have a bit more experience but our system would be a complete joke if it weren't for the Courts making sure that everyone who wants representation has representation regardless of their station in life. I'm actually glad this sad situation gave me an opportunity to address that issue. People are actually stunned when I tell them PD's went to law school and passed the bar exam. Thank you to all who hung in there until the end on this one. Michael please let me go for your own mental health. Stay out of trouble and live your best life. Nothing would please me more.
