Excellent Attorney and great service.
I have used Mr. Charlip's services for the last few years on different occasions and I was always very satisfied and pleased with the services he and his office provided . Mr. Charlip is a brilliant attorney and posses a great knowledge of the law, he is a very professional, dedicated and detail oriented, but even more importantly I found him to be an honest person of great integrity (Which is not easy to find this days in Miami...) In the past prior to using Mr. Charlip's services I have used other attorneys but they did not even come close...I know firsthand that when you hire Mr. Charlip as your attorney you could be assured that you will get the best representation possible. In all the cases he handled on my behalf he always exceeded my expectations. I Highly recommend him to anyone !

David is a Genius , Knows the Law and I am so Grateful Si found him.
I found David to be highly intelligent, hard working, extremely prepared in the intricacies of the facts of my case and the law pertaining to it. It was obvious in the court room the judge had a great Respect for the way he spoke to the opposing counsel, to the court; as a lawyer I didn't look forward to hiring a lawyer to represent me and I was a tough customer , but David far exceeded any expectations that I had he is forthright and honest and a 10 in both legal skill, command of the courtroom and personable
