Blessed to meet mr. Roger!
I had a second arrest! it was car accident and i was very scared, i hired the lawyer who told me that my case is a lost and there is no way i can even get reduced charges. I was very sad and scared, and the universe send me mr. Roger, i switched the lawyers and mr. Elkind started to work on my case, he knew what he was doing and always explaining me step by step, he was answering my phone calls or messages all the time. He won my case!!! For me it was a miracle! But for him it was just a professional work and knowledge! I would recommend him to everybody ! Best lawyer ever!

Best Lawyer
I met this lawyer and i was afraid of my case, or would i have enough for a lawyer. Mr.Rodger Elkind answered my call and made my worries and troubles go away. This lawyer did not stop until i was stress free person again and in his power, he would take any case to the max length to make his client safe as possible in the best way. Phone calls were answered, emails were reviewed and discussed. Mr. Elkind is the way to go and i would highly recommend him.

I recommend Roger Elkind 100 % Amazing Lawyer
I received a letter in the mail this year in June from Broward County Court House informing me that I had to attend a zoom meeting with a judge and a lawyer that was representing a client from the bus accident that is injured. When I attended the meeting I was informed that after 3 years of being involved in a accident with a Broward County City Bus that hit my vehicle and tore my front bumper off my vehicle and did other damages to my vehicle in the front resulting in a total loss, I was being sued by a man that says he fell down on the bus and was hurt and was receiving treatment from that day the accident in 2017 occurred and the amount of money he is asking for is for medical expenses and a hip surgery. The reason I was being sued is because the officer that responded to the crash in 2017 issued me a ticket for careless driving and wrote on the ticket that I was making a u turn into a moving bus. I was waiting at a complete stop waiting to merge into the lane to go straight, when the bus entered my lane and hit my vehicle. I called Geico to see what they could do to defend me to find to my surprise, I didn’t have bodily insurance, and I was paying on the vehicle so I had my license suspended and I had to fight to have the ticket removed from my record, and they could not defend me against being sued. I had to hire a lawyer. I hired Roger Elkind to defend me. He charged me at a reduced rate, He wrote everything he was doing in detail and time he spent on each task on the invoice he sent me. He always kept me informed on the case and what was happening next. He answered all my questions, and I could call him at any time, he would always return my phone calls. He is a amazing lawyer!!!! Roger is a experienced, and he knows what questions to ask. He was able to prove my innocence in this case. I think how this case could have ruined my life, if taken to trial i would have had to pay more fees and if the case would of not been won I would end up paying a large amount of money to someone that I didn’t cause injury to, and the court suspends your license until the balance is paid in full. I am 100% satisfied with the end result of the case, I was proven not guilty for the accident and I didn’t have to pay any further fees. Thank you again Roger for your hard work and complete dedication to my case. I would recommend you to everyone that needs a lawyer.

I recommend Roger 100%
Roger truly delivered everything he promised. I got into a bad spot with some traffic tickets that snowballed into a larger issue that could have cost me my drivers license. He got ALL charges dismissed. Roger is honest and direct, and very easy to work with. He provided reassurance and support at a time when I was stressed and scared. I recommend his services 100%!

A great friend and competent attorney
I've known Roger for over 20 years and he has represented me on a few occasions - from minor traffic violations and misdemeanors. Mr. Elkind is dedicated to his clients and has over 33 years of experience. Roger has the tenacity and knowledge that make him stand apart from the rest.

A tough lawyer who will defend you!!
Mr. Elkind was my attorney for my DUI case, he's very dedicated and has a strong will to defend you in court. I've gained a lot of confidence in Mr. Elkind on how professional and strategic he was on my case. Mr. Elkind presented 30 years wealth of experience on law, on my case he noticed a lot of errors on the police reports and done his research, he works thoroughly in my case and keeps me updated on a daily basis. The state attorney was a fierce competitor, determine to have a DUI and reckless driving in my record. Mr. Elkind fought long and hard for me and as a result I received a reckless driving on my record. Tears of joy came down my face knowing that I have a second chance in life all because of Roger elkind I will never forget the service he has done. In Broward county its tough when it come to DUI cases and you need a tough lawyer like Roger elkind to defend you!!! thank you Rodger for all that you've done now I can resume my life on becoming a Physical Therapist and start a family.

DUI
Before I found Rodger, I had scoured through numerous sources and read countless reviews on the internet to see what attorney I wanted to represent me. I called a few law firms to see what each lawyer had to say about my case. My first priority was to schedule a 10-day DMV hearing to fight for my license. Out of all the law firms I called that day, Rodger was the ONLY attorney to really explain my situation and the consequences. He was the ONLY lawyer who really wanted to fight for my license! In the end, he won the DMV hearing and I received my license back! That alone, was a great victory for me and sealed the deal - he was definitely the PERFECT attorney for me. After much preparation and strategy, Rodger reduced my DUI charge to a Reckless driving charge, which afforded me the opportunity to start my new chapter in my life. For those who read reviews for different services to make your decision, consider this review and look no further. Rodger is certainly the attorney for you because he is willing to take a chance and fight!

Dependable, Skilled, and Tactful
Roger has helped me with traffic tickets and credit restoration over the past couple of years. He has helped me take a huge mess and consolidate my issues into nonexistence. Without Roger's help I would be lost. He takes his time and answers questions honestly and thoroughly. The 25+ years of experience Roger advertises shows. I recommend him highly to anyone seeking legal advise.

extremely knowledgeable
In may of 2011 I was charged with 4 duis(due to injuries that two motorcyclist sustained and property damage on multiple vehicles) and possession of marijuana.I was looking at one year in jail and my license suspended for five years.Even though I stupidly submitted to road side sobriety test and breathalyzer test,Mr Roger Elkind STILL won the case in court due to recognizing the utter incompetence of the officers involved in my cases.Im confident a less experienced attorney would have over seen this blunder and wouldnt have been able to capitalize on it.Unfortunately due to the preponderance of evidence the state had against me they appealed the case and won in appellate court.Even still,Mr Elkind secured me a very generous deal that involved no jail time and a license suspension of only 9 months,significantly better then what i was originally facing.God forbid any of my friends or family find themselves in trouble with the law or need a family or divorce lawyer,I would 100% recommend Mr Elkind to represent them in court.

Attorney Roger Elkind...An EXPERT
Words can not describe how fortunate I was to retain ROGER ELKIND as my attorney. As bizarre as my case was, he was able to put his years of EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE to work. I live in Miami, FL and my case was out of Stuart, FL. He tackled my case against ALL ODDS, traveled to Stuart several times WITH ME and kept me apprised every step of the way. His way of maneuverability through the case was SECOND TO NONE. My initial charges were Dropped and downgraded to reckless driving. Believe me when I tell you , I was against all odds and ATTORNEY ROGER ELKIND PROVED HIS REPUTATION...SECOND TO NONE. Thank You, Attorney Roger Elkind

Above and Beyond!
First I want to apologize to Mr. Roger Elkins for not getting this well deserved 5 Star Review to him sooner. Albert Quirantes is lawyer that I hired for my case. His staff is very professional, he himself was very up front and forthcoming as it regards my case and situation. Angie was extremely kind, helpful and informative as well. Mr. Elkind and Mr. Quirantes obviously work together on certain cases, my point is the day of my sentencing was the first time I met Mr. Elkind. The first thing that stood out to me was that I immediately arrived at the impression that he was going to fight for me. Trust me; my case and situation was an uphill battle but Mr. Elkind made it look easy. Mr. Elkind truly performed above and beyond for me. And it was more than appreciated. Thank you sir.

Outstanding Attorney
I had the pleasure of having Roger Elkind has my attorney and I must say he out did himself. He is was very attention to detail so much that once he reviews your case he can amost let you know what will happened. Listen with 25 plus years of experience he will put of it to work for you, well respected by judges and fellow attorneys. Roger made sure that he was always available when I need him and if he could not talk he will text you right away. I can go on and on about what he did for me and is continuing to do but if you are looking for a not only good not only great but a Outstanding attorney that will have your best interest then have a sit down with Mr. Elkind and I assure you that your time and money with not be wasted.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Roger for over 25 years and have worked on several cases with him. This is a lawyer who cares about his clients and fights to win his criminal law cases. The man is experienced in all facets of criminal law, DUI & traffic ticket defense. He's not afraid to pick a jury and call the state out. That's how you win cases around here. I don't particularly endorse wheelers and dealers who plead out every case, that's why I endorse this lawyer. Roger practices more like my style. He fights to win and takes no prisoners. If you are considering hiring him, do so. You won't be sorry."
