Great attorney
I retained the Ivanor Law Firm to represent me in my deportation case. Carlos, was very friendly and always well prepared. He always answered all of my questions and is very professional. He knows alot when it comes to immigration law. He is great in trial and convinced the judge to cancel my deportation. He also speaks Spanish and English fluently. No matter the time of day he would always answer my calls promptly. I was very lucky to have him as my attorney and would recommend his services to anyone. Do no hestiate to contact this attorney if you ever have the need for a high quality attorney who is honest and reputable.

Great criminal defense attorney
I hired Mr. Ivanor for my criminal case. He was always prepared at court and informed of what was happening thru out the entire case. He explained to me all the process in detail. His office will always attend you calls, emails and texts.

Very happy client
This is absolutely the best law firm possible. The Attorney is a great attorney and person. He is honest and he helped me through a very serious problem. I had a prior order of deportation and through his hard work and honest dealing with me he was able to get my deportation order taken away. I am now a lawful permanent resident thanks to Carlos.

Attorney that fought for me
Carlos Ivanor represented me in a criminal case. The State wanted to do me in and wanted me to go to jail. Carlos was always positive and I always felt that he was on my side. He fought hard and eventually the State dropped my case. If you have to get a lawyer I highly recommend you talk to Carlos.

Immigration Attorney who made all of the difference in my case!!
I wanted to thank you on my behalf for your all your help. It has been a rocky road (due to the previous work done by our prior attorney), but there seems to be lighton the other side of the tunnel. Hopefully I will get to that side of the pond to embrace my family and meet the man who makes this possible (Attorney Carlos Ivanor)!! It is a pleasure to have you work on my case, hope to see you soon!

I must say if you are looking for a lawyer who will help you 110% look no further. When I came to him regarding my situation he told me everything that could happen and where I will stand. He gave me his word that he will do his very best to get me what I wanted. No matter what time of day I called regarding my concerns he was always there.

I was charged with a very serious offense. I was looking at a 10yr. minimum mandatory sentence. Mr. Ivanor worked very hard and was always prepared. He obtained a probationary sentence for me and I am very very very happy with his representation. He filed numerous motion in court and was even successful in arguing motion to suppress. He is an excellent attorney and goes above and beyond. He is one of the best attorney in Orlando, Florida. I would recommend Mr. Ivanor to anyone who was charged with a crime.

Very unprofessional and is very uneducated/ignorant in front of the judge. Made my case a whole lot worse. would not recommend to anyone. save your time and money.
Response from Carlos Ivanor January 26, 2021
I take all of the cases I am hired on seriously and try my best to be prepared for all cases. I do not know who posted this comment, since it was posted anonymously. I do not know if this is even an actual client or someone else with an ulterior motive. Regardless, I do not know how an attorney can make a case worse for a client, could this person please elaborate? If there is ever an issue with my professional representation, I encourage the client to contact me to see what we can do to make things right. We always strive to properly represent all of our clients to the best of our abilities. An attorney takes a case with the facts already created and some cases are a lot harder than others. I have been an attorney for 17 years and understand that no one can make a person happy 100% of the time. Please reach out to me: [email protected] or 407-255-2065 to discuss your case.
