My Attorney Stephen G. Charpentier, & his Para Legal make a superb professional team. They worked the details of my complex issue to a realistic & fail conclusion. They were very patient with me as they worked to gain information from me & my doctors. Their recommendations helped me reach solid decisions.

If you read no further, please know that our claim was successfully concluded.
This was our first experience with Mr. Charpentier but in case we are in need of a Florida attorney in the future, we are keeping his number in our speed dial. Seeking legal advice about circumstances resulting in the death of our mother, we had been shuttled from one attorney to another because none of them would be honest enough with us to advise that our initial issue was without merit. Mr. Charpentier cut right to the chase about the questions we had and took the time to explain why litigation would not be advised. During the course of that initial conversation he did note an issue of interest regarding an accidental death insurance policy. We discussed that issue & agreed to pursue that matter further. Mr. Charpentier and his staff fulfilled everything we have come to expect from legal advisors and more. They were professional and courteous at all times. Our questions were answered promptly and clearly and we were updated on status along the way by conference calls, emails and US mail. It is our firm belief that the expertise & assistance of the Charpentier Law Office was a huge positive in the successful outcome of our claim.

Was rear-ended and the at fault driver only had state minimum insurance and no assets. Mr. Charpentier and his paralegal Joanna Stevens worked thoroughly, efficiently, and courteously to insure that I was returned whole after the accident. I couldn't have asked for or expected more.

I am very grateful to Mr. Charpentier for helping me with my underinsured motorist claim. His advice was always right on target and his strategies always were designed to lead to the best possible outcome. His staff, too, performed with the utmost skill and professionalism throughout the process. I always felt that he and his staff cared about me personally, not just about my case, and that gave me great comfort as negotiations continued. Everyone with whom I came into contact in Mr. Charpentier's office was genuinely nice -- in every encounter and every meeting, I felt welcomed and never felt like I was a burden or a distraction. We achieved the best possible result in my case, and I attribute that solely to the expertise and persistence of Mr. Charpentier and his capable staff.

This was my husband's 2nd accident in less than a year and both times we were dealing with individuals with no insurance. Charpentier Law Firm gave us hope back that everything would turn out alright and it has. They constantly kept us informed of our case throughout the process, which was extremely important to us, since our previous attorney never returned calls or communicated with us.
Thank you again to you and your incredible team!!

Steve has worked with me for the past 13 years on a wrongful death case and throughout that time he has proven to be an extraordinary and capable lawyer. He works hard for his clients, he is tenacious, he is smart, and above all….he produces results. I highly recommend Steve.

I worked with Steve on a difficult case involving traumatic injuries to a young girl. He is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with and an even better person. He was able to obtain an amazing result for the client and also followed up with her after the case to offer his support and help her move on with her life. Highly recommended.
