5.0 stars 26 totalReview Leonard Sands
Posted by Cedric W. Johnson (CW Johnson LLC)
I very recently had the absolute pleasure of working with Attorney Leonard Sands as the engaged defense investigator on an alleged complex criminal financial fraud case that had been unresolved and active for almost 11 years. It was my first case working with Attorney Sands, yet it seemed I had known and worked with him forever. His professionalism, intelligence, patients and experience was evident from inception. We worked as a cohesive team. Gathered evidence was used by Attorney Sands, who orchestrated a beautiful legal defense that forced the prosecution to drop all charges, which were very serious alleged felony offenses, against our client, who was elated! Attorney Leonard Sands is an outstanding lawyer that I look forward to working with again.

Atty Sands defended me in a criminal case brought against me in 2007. He was able to forcefully defend me while simultaneously maintaining a cordial relationship with the prosecutors. The case was resolved after nine years of litigation. The State dropped all charges against me. Lesser attorneys would have accepted a settlement which was offered day one. Atty. Sands remained steadfast in his insistence on a complete vindication.
Needless to say I recommend Attorney Leonard Sands with the highest degree of confidence that you will have an unrelenting defender on your side.

Leonard Sands is by far the most competent and skilled attorney in Florida. I retained Leonard at a time when the a Government was investigating decisions I had made during my own practice of law. After speaking to numerous other white collar criminal defense attorneys, it took me little time to decide that Leonard was the very best choice. With his help and guidance, we made it through a very tough time. There is no other choice when it comes to hiring a trusted and knowledgeable advocate.

I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Leonard on a tobacco case. I work with many lawyers in my consulting business and I must say Leonard is by far one of the best I have ever worked with. He got the government to reduce the audit liability by over 60%, penalties waived and 12 month no interest payment plan. Leonard is a true professional and a great person. I learned a great deal working with Leonard and I hope I have another opportunity to work with him in the future.

I have dealt with Leonard Sands for over 15 years. The statement "You get what you pay for" has never been truer. I was facing a 20 year mandatory sentence, and after 4 1/2 years of court delays and negotiations, Leonard got this reduced to 6 months probation. This incident happened 15 years ago and I have not been in trouble since, thank God. The DA's office overcharged this case and distorted facts and charged me with 2 Hate Crime felonies. This wasn't even close to the truth. I could have still been in jail! God bless Leonard, he's a real life saver! I am proud to call him not only my lawyer, but a family friend.

First of all, If you are looking for an attorney, I don't have to tell you the stress you must be going through. Do you want to feel better? Call Mr. Sands! Right from my first call with Mr. Sands, my heart beat resumed to normal, I was more informed, and for the first time during the whole process I felt confidence in my circumstances. That is the outcome of working with someone who has over 40 years of experience. Mr. Sands is the type of lawyer that would make you cringe if he was on the opposite side, and I tell you, I'm glad he was on my side. Don't get me wrong, he is a sweet guy, but a warrior when defending you. Check his profile and you'll get the picture. Mr. sands is a HIGH caliber attorney, well known within the legal community, and very respected by his peers.
Thank you For everything Mr. Sands, it was a real pleasure.

I got introduced to Leonard by another lawyer and to tell you the truth, I was dealing with a federal court case that puts an enormous weight on my back: I'm still slouching from it.
So my first meeting, Leonard immediately put me at ease with an introduction and he was listening & asking pointed questions and by the time the meeting was over
I felt Leonard knew more about the case than me. During the process, he prepared, advised, and in the end nailed it to the point where looking back the solution was so simple: Leonard was a natural for this case.
Leonard has made a life time customer out of me. The ONLY problem with Leonard now is that he has put the bar so high, that I don't think anyone can fill his shoes. I recommend Leonard blindly, however the review doesn't allow me to put 10 stars.

At a time when I was not sure what to do or who to trust, I reached out to Leonard Sands for help and advice. He listened without judging me and kept his focus on my issue. He provided suggestions that I had not thought of on my own. He showed such care for me and my family in a way that I did not anticipate. I never thought I would need the advice, counsel and help of a criminal attorney in my life, but I was so glad he was there when I did. I can't stress enough that if you need a compassionate, bright and experienced attorney to help you maneuver the penal system, speak with Leonard Sands.
