Dustin Tischler a True Professional
I was referred to Dustin by a close friend. Immediately Dustin offered to help anyway that he could legally. I was able to retain Dustin and he immediately came up with a plan but most importantly provided me with professional reassurance. His legal knowledge and professionalism are what saved me from the impeding situation. He got my case Dismissed! I am referring him to anyone that I come across who needs legal counsel! Thank you again Dustin.

Dustin saved my brother’s life
Dustin is an exceptional lawyer. He is also a remarkable person. Choosing him to represent my brother on an attempted felony murder charge was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My brother was facing 20 years to life, and was out in less than a year - a mere four months from the time I engaged Dustin. My brother got his life back, and it was all because of Dustin. When my brother was arrested, I contacted, vetted, and interviewed close to a dozen attorneys. Dustin came highly recommended by a friend who is a well-regarded attorney in South Florida. He said he would trust Dustin with his life, and if anyone in his family were in trouble, that’s who he would call. Every lawyer I interviewed other than Dustin presented a gloomy scenario, reporting that Broward County is extraordinarily tough on crimes involving a deadly weapon. They suggested this was an open-and-shut case, and it was highly probable my brother would be in jail for decades. They also said the case could drag on for years, and because he was charged with a felony, getting bonded out was unlikely. It was as though those attorneys presumed my brother was guilty before even reviewing the facts. Dustin, on the other hand, entertained the possibility that there might be mitigating circumstances which would result in a more favorable outcome. He didn’t overpromise - he was clear that the charges were serious and at first glance the prospects didn’t look good - but he was willing to do everything he could to make the best of a very bad situation. And he did, in record time. The outcome of my brother’s case speaks for itself. When you’re looking for an attorney, you want someone who delivers results. And Dustin did - a result we never dreamt possible - because he’s smart, creative, strategic, and tenacious. But because it’s such a stressful time for all involved, it’s also important to engage someone who can “turn the temperature down”. Dustin did that too. He’s calm, patient, and kind. He’s a great listener. He’s genuine, and he really, truly cares. He holds your hand when you need it, and is a voice of reason when nothing seems fair. He’s thoughtful, and just an all around really good guy. On top of all this, Dustin is composed, polished, and professional. My sense from viewing the proceedings is that the Judge and Prosecutor had a great deal of respect for him. That’s also important; it makes a difference. What I said earlier bears repeating - hiring Dustin to represent my brother is the best decision I’ve ever made. He makes things happen and takes care of you along the way.

Dustin Tishler review
I was in jail for 5 months without an attorney conflict of interest with public defender and regional attorney there was no bond for some reason and I was stuck,never been through this before and was i guess you can say naive didn't know what to do then Dustin was appointed as my pro bono attorney.In one week I spoke with him on visio three days later I had an emergency bond hearing and received bond prosecutor asked for 100,000 Dustin got it to 26,000 which is 2,600 bond i was out in a week with home arrest and a monitor. Two weeks later Dustin put in a motion to move me to level 2 I was aloud out 9-6 7 days.one year later with all the delays and status court dates Dustin got the case dismissed!!! All this without getting paid he was just as efficient and it didn't really matter to him.I told him one day that I didn't want to bother him I know he wasn't getting paid and he said please call me anytime.I would recommend Dustin Tishler as your attorney to fight for you as hard as he can pro bono or as a paid attorney.

Incredible work by Mr.Tischler
Mr. Tischler did an incredible job working with my husband and I to lower our sentence. We where fighting for our life and without him we wouldn’t be where we are. Both of us where facing 7 years each on drug charges and thanks to Dustin we got probation as well as 2 years house arrest. I couldn’t have been more happy with the out come. He is a very well mannered and helpful person who I would definitely recommend to whoever is in need of legal help. He also very easy to contact and was there every step of the way to walk us step by step and answer any questions we might’ve had.

One of a Kind!
I can’t express enough how grateful I am to have had Attorney Tischler by my side during one of the toughest moments in my life. Facing 7 felony charges with the possibility of 20 years in prison, I was completely overwhelmed. Dustin’s deep knowledge of the law, exceptional communication skills, and strategic approach immediately put me at ease in an incredibly stressful situation. Under his guidance, I was not only released from prison but also witnessed him skillfully negotiate down my charges to just one misdemeanor with time served and parole. Dustin Tischler is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever worked with. His dedication, expertise, and genuine concern for his clients are invaluable. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for me. Thank you!

BEST LAWYER IN FLORIDA
Dustin went above and beyond to solve my case and my wife's. It took some time because the courts kept pushing back the dates, but Dustin kept at it and he kept telling us to not lose hope. He was able to remove all of my wife's charges and reduced mine to a minimum. It would not an exaggeration to say that he worked Magic. Dustin was always available whenever I needed him or whenever I had any questions about my case. five stars out of five stars for me. I would recommend him than any day of the week for any legal trouble that you might have. Also his recommendations of other lawyers came in extremely helpful also.

Competent, Experienced, Knowledgeable
Was faced with a 2nd degree felony charge. - Dustin put me at ease right from the beginning, at first I was thinking perhaps over confident - but his experience as a former Miami/Dade prosecutor as well as his experience "knowing" the Judge AND the DA came to light very quickly, and his confidence was easily justified. - Dustin actually returns calls and emails *timely* - often same day - email can be returned even at 11:00pm same day. - He is even available by Cel phone. - all this is TOTALLY UNHEARD OF with most attorneys. Dustin is one of the few where "Honest, fair and *attorney*" can appear in same phrase - in addition to Competent, innovative, resourceful, experienced, knowledgeable ... just to name a few is an understatement. (btw - all charges dropped at arraignment by the DA).

Great Guy, Great Results
Dustin is an amazing attorney. He was very compassionate towards my son’s case from the initial consultation. He guided us, and gave insightful advice in helping him overcome the issues he was going through. My child was going to face time in prison, and he fought to get him another outcome. To say I am thankful for him saving my son’s future is an understatement. He is a very kind attorney and I recommend him to anybody who is considering hiring him.

Dustin did such an amazing job with my sons case. He was always present in court even when times I was unable to attend. He kept me updated every step of the way. What I appreciate most about him is that he went over and beyond what previous attorneys I’ve hired would even think of. Dustin is by far one of the best attorneys that I’ve ever hired. Dustin is tha MAN!

Only Lawyer I Would Ever Want
I was arrested with the on various drug charges and parole violations. The public defender told me I would serve a minimum of twelve years, so I called this highly recommended lawyer. Mr. Tischler met with me several times and took my case very seriously. He went over all my options and advised me on what to say and do. I was able to get sentenced to mandatory rehab and I have been sober for ten months. Mr. Tischler not only got my sentence reduced but he saved my life.

Best Lawyer in the Biz
I was arrested a few years back for DUI, evading police and reckless driving when I lived in Florida. I was referred to Mr. Tischler through a mutual friend who had used him for some drug offenses and was happy with his work. Uncertain of my future, I was very much afraid. Mr. Tischler calmed my fears and laid out a great plan for a defense against my charges. Needless to say, my charges were downgraded to reckless driving and I ended up with probation. Very happy with his work!

Raising the bar
After being pulled over at a routine traffic stop, I knew I was going to be in some serious trouble. I had been day drinking, and was well above the legal limit. I also had some marijuana and paraphernalia in my vehicle. I knew I needed some legal counsel and fast. I was referred to Dustin by a friend of mine. Man, that was some of the best advice I ever took. This guy is top notch. He did everything in his power to assist me with this difficult situation I put myself in. To be honest, I would never even consider using anyone else.
