Mr. Atten is the most professional lawyer that I have encountered in Miami which is a city filled with crooks, drug addicts, and unsavory characters. Without going into the details of my case, when I caught a charge in Miami for something that I didn't do, no lawyer wanted to take my case. I was consistently told that the evidence was stacked too high against me and that I should just take a plea which would have resulted in me possibly not getting into med school. Mr. Atten took my case, and represented me in such an outstanding why that I was fully acquitted in any wrong doing based on a flaw in the officer's investigation. I would recommend Mr. Atten to anyone who needed an attorney, and I will be forever grateful that he believed in me and my case.
