Client Review
I never thought I would find myself in need of a lawyer to represent me, let alone a criminal defense lawyer. Thank God I was referred to Brian Tannebaum. I will never forget my first meeting with Brian; I was depressed and very distraught over the events that led to the situation I found myself in. Brian first listened more as a friend then a lawyer; he was able to develop a strategic plan on our position and was able to effectively communicate that plan to me step by step. He provided timely updates on a regular basis, and handled all media coverage both local and national. Execution is the most important part of any plan and Brian was able to execute our strategic plan flawlessly. When your personal and professional life depends on having the right lawyer and law firm on your team, don’t gamble on your outcome, having Brian and his team of professional's representing you is a pretty safe bet.

Ethics and professional responsibility Attorney | May 28

"Brian is brilliant. As a fellow member of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers, I always read his advice when working on issues in my own practice. I have also bounced criminal law issues off of him and found his insight to be excellent."

"Brian is a tenacious, well-prepared, and thoughtful advocate for his clients. His legal skills are top notch and his reputation peerless."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 08
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"In the early I990's I was fortunate to supervise a group of lawyers at the Miami-Dade Public Defender's Office. They were a very tight knit group. Rarely does a group of attorneys come along as special. Three of the attorneys have become distinguished state court judges and one was recently nominated to become a federal court judge in Miami. Not to take anything away from these jurists, I have to say a word or two about Brian Tannebaum. Anyone could see way back in 1993 that Brian was a burgeoning superstar! Brian has become a great lawyer as any of his clients would most certainly agree. He has the respect of his peers, prosecutors and judges, which is a testament to his legal skills. Despite all of his success, not one bit of it has gone to his head as his ego remains in check. If you ask him, he'd attribute his success to just plain old hard work. But the truth is that Brian has the "it" factor. I absolutely endorse Brian Tannebaum without hesitation or reservation!"

"I endorse this lawyer. Often if I have a question, I call Tannebaum and I am pretty damn smart. He is smarter than me. And I hear more aggressive! Brian is an outstanding attorney."
Unknown Attorney | Dec 11

"I endorse this lawyer."
Ethics and professional responsibility Attorney | Nov 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I brought Brian into a criminal case that had serious ethical and administrative implications for the client. Brian's counsel was spot on and was delivered with perfect tone. We achieved excellent results for the client. Brian is my "go to guy" in this area of practice."
Ethics and professional responsibility Attorney | Oct 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"You will not find a more competent and ethical lawyer. I worked with him on several matters, and he consulted me on cases involving potential military law issues. That last point deserves emphasis because too many lawyers work in a vacuum, trying to work cases by themselves, even in foreign areas of the law. Brian has a knack for identifying multidisciplinary issues in a case. If some of those issues are outside of his area of expertise, he seeks help from those with expertise and experience. This is a rare quality among today's attorneys. He is not afraid to work as a team when necessary and right for the client. Any client hiring Brian is in great hands. If I were in trouble, he'd be the first one I call."
Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

Ethics and professional responsibility Attorney | Feb 17

"Brian is an exceptional lawyer. Even in a group of fine lawyers, such as the FACDL, Brian stands out. I have referred him clients, including one of my closest friends. He does terrific work, and does it in a way that lets his clients maintain their dignity."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 13
