“Are you ready to fight? Let’s go!”
The title of my review refers to the words Andrew used on his way into court to fight for our daughter. When you have a problem, he listens the right amount, then gets to work to solve the problem in the best possible way. You never feel like you’re bothering him or aren’t worth his time, regardless the size of your case. If you’re still thinking, don’t think. Hire Andrew. (Oh yeah, he also wins.)

El número uno
Si hubieran 100 estrellas deberían ser otorgadas a este gran abogado, me recomendaron este abogado y tuve una cita en su oficina, me dijo que haría todo lo posible por encontrar una justa decisión en mi caso, días después fui a la corte y desestimaron mi caso, le doy siempre gracias por lo que hizo y es un ejemplo de abogado, mis respetos para usted.

Highly Recommended
My experience working with this Law Office was a great one despite the circumstances. Mr. Smallman was a great recommendation! I didn't have the best thoughts when it came to Lawyers but he definitely changed that! He is honest, trustworthy and tells you like it is. I came to him with my truth and he rode that till the end with me. I'm forever grateful and would recommend him 10 times over again! Thank you...

Gilbert & Smallman PLLC Andrew Smallman was a godsend to my family at a time when our options were slim and our grief consumed us. A previous attorney wasted valuable time we didn’t have and quoted a fee, at the time I didn’t know any better, but it was astronomical. Last insult was that the estate was in Florida and I live in New Orleans. I started calling other attorneys in Florida hoping for a miracle, time was crucial at this point. I spent hours on the phone talking to receptionists answering “intake” questions just for them to tell me no. The last number I had was Andrew, it was in the evening and he personally answered, He was very calm and had an extremely empathetic demeanor. He was flabbergasted over the fees the first attorney requested because his fees were a fraction of that cost. He, as well as his firm had a vast knowledge base, were prompt, professional, and considerate. Going above and beyond is an understatement!! Andrew handled situations that didn’t even pertain to the task at hand, without him this process would have been unbelievably difficult. We can never thank Andrew enough for the executive and attentive care he gave us, I highly recommend Andrew Smallman and his firm to anyone.

Andrew one was great with communication if he didn’t answer a call he’d either send a text or an email . He was very on top of things from the moment he started my case he made it seem like I was the only person he was working with knowing he had so many others that just shows what great customer service looks like not only that , My case was not only a success he walked me through everything that was going on and what was going to happen and made sure I understood what the end Result would be long story short Andrew was amazing I would give him ten stars but it only allows five lol .

Extremely Helpful
Mr. Smallman was very professional and amicable when I called him in regards to my criminal case. He assured me everything would be alright, and he'd take care of it as soon as possible. Needles to say, he did just that, and I'm very grateful to him for that.

Andrew Smallman is nothing short from spectacular, in a dark time in my life he was front line giving me a second chance. A lot of the time lawyers make it about the money, to Mr. Smallman it was about helping someone in need. I am forever grateful to have been lucky enough to find a lawyer like himself. In all situations you can count on Andrew Smallman. THANK YOU !!

The BEST Advice
It's weird calling someone your lawyer when they feel more like your friend. Andy has a way of getting to the quick of a situation with ease and grace and turning anything into a positive if you give him the time to figure it out. I called him today with a simple matter and didn't just get an answer, but a genuine and valuable explanation that will affect my decision making for a very long time. Whether I'm dealing with a complicated case or a simple issue, Andy is there for me and my family.

THE BEST ATTORNEY!
I was referred Mr. Smallman by some friends who he won their case. And I was delighted to meet him because he was so attentive over the phone. It is was my first time hiring a lawyer and going to court, and Mr. Smallman is one of the most professional and kind lawyer ever. Not only did we win my case but he made sure I felt calm cool and collected throughout the whole process. I highly, highly recommend Mr. Smallman and I had an excellent experience. If ever needed be I would work with him again in a heartbeat and I would feel confident knowing he’s got my back!!!!

Prompt and Immediate attention in a tough circumstance!
Sometimes things happen to us that are very serious and we are not properly equipped to handle the situation. Never needing an attorney in Broward County I didn't know who to call. A friend of mine had lived here his entire life and said " call Andrew Smallman, I wouldn't trust anyone else in Broward!" Boy was he right! Andy returned my call immediately and had me released the next morning. It got even better when he handled my case and had it completely dismissed. I've never had an attorney that was always there for me. He returned every phone call and led me through my process with confidence and absolute professionalism. I've never felt so comfortable in such a bad circumstance and I now have an attorney FOR LIFE !

Attorney Andrew Smallman
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Andrew Smallman who was hired to represent a friend. I was very impressed with his professionalism, thoroughness, and efficacy. Mr. Smallman gave my friend the advice he needed to navigate through his situation with knowledge and confidence. He made sure he covered all bases to enable my friend to get a positive outcome with the minimal amount of stress. He told him not to initiate an action he was thinking about pursuing because there wouldn’t be a positive outcome, which saved my friend an unnecessary expense. He was very supportive and went above and beyond when he came to meet us in court in a related case. Mr. Smallman is a down to earth person with a warm and lighthearted personality, which makes it so much easier when going through a difficult situation. I highly recommend him.

Beyond the best
I was referred to use Andrew Smallman to handle my husband's estate. With that referral came a more personal friend than a lawyer. He was more than an attorney. He handled more than the estate, and treated me as a family member, not a client. His word was gold to me. I trusted No one and he gave me light at the end of the tunnel to see clearer after being devastated, used and taken advantage of by so many people and friends. He listened and said and did everything humanly possible to see that NO ONE screwed me over, and I got everything that was rightfully mine. I am so grateful to have known him, and had him represent my husband estate, and my personal matters. I owe him so much more than a thank you and am truly grateful for everything he did.
