|FL||Member in Good Standing||1993||01/30/2017|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Paul’s comment: “Technical rule violation during a case where the prosecutor was also referred for a rule violation involving his use of improper tactics. Always a Member in Good Standing with the Florida Bar. Never reprimanded, suspended, or anything of the sort. Unfortunately, AVVO fails to make this important distinction.”

Never would I have imagined that I would be on the search for a lawyer, but it happened. Paul Petruzzi is extremely knowledgeable and he demonstrated a high degree of compassion and understanding in helping me with my case. From the start he seemed extremely confident in his ability to get me the best result possible. Something other lawyers weren’t to convincing on. As my Federal case continued all his promises were justified for. Through out my experience I witnessed the level of respect the Federal world has for Paul from the guards all the way up to the Judges. I recall several workers mentioning to me “wow Paul Petruzzi is your lawyer he is really good”. Let me also mention his team is AWESOME!!!! Christy, Betty, and Mauricio are always there to answer questions, even afterhours on their personal phones. They truly made me feel like a part of the family as if we knew each other our entire lives. Thank you team Petruzzi you where truly a blessing in a very dark situation.

Paul is a phenomenal lawyer withan incredible skill in technical strategies. He knows the system well and can direct you through the maze of how the government works to manipulate their way to a successful conviction. i foiund that he was a mastermind with how he can maneuver through their mine fields and get you (me) the very best results without too much pain and suffering. Most people who end up caught in the riptide of the system are foolish enough to think they can use the same tactics for the government that they used in their illegal activities and it will only drown you. Like swimming aginst the current. the one thing that Paul will do with great efficiency is find a way to get the least path of resitence and help you get back home as quickly and easily as possible. I admire his candor and forthrightness and how he handled me was perfect in the sense that i was able to get a very short sentence and am home now. I have finally learned my lessons about which side of the road to walk and it was the fact that Paul was able to get me a short enough sentence with the scare of a longer one that has helped me right my ways.
He is a little abrasive and not the most personable when it comes to dealing with him but putting that aside, I'd rather have him treating me that way and doing the right thing for me and my family than having some friendly lawyer come in and get me sent into orbit as he is waving goodbye from the courtroom. If you have gotten yourself in trouble then there is no better lawyer out there to help you get this behind you and home as quickly as possible. just do not expect to tell him to do anything because he does what is the right thing to do for you and not what you think is the right thing to do for you.

If you ever need a criminal lawyer, Mr. Petruzzi is the man to call. He provided me the best counsel anyone can ask for. He is simply the best. Million thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
Mr. Petruzzi is truly an exceptional advocate and he has been an inspiration to me as a young lawyer. I worked with Mr. Petruzzi for quite some time and I can sincerely say that he is intelligent, hardworking and committed to his clients. I learned something new each day I worked with him. Mr. Petruzzi goes above and beyond what is normally expected of him. He is not afraid to explore novel and creative methods in seeking favorable resolutions for his clients. No challenge is too great for him. Mr. Petruzzi enjoys the practice of law which is reflected in the results he is able to obtain on behalf of his clients. I have and always will recommend Mr. Petruzzi to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney.

I have worked with Paul on a complex Federal criminal matter as I needed to get admitted pro hac vice into the Southern District of Florida. Paul is extremely competent and experienced, and he is a pleasure to work with. I have already referred him other clients of mine to take care of local cases.
