If you want anybody to represent you this is your guy
From day one he’s very attentive and will inform you on your situation. Even though it looks kind of grim at first he’ll be your beacon of light and he will get you through it. He’s very confident and knows his in and outs with the law.

superb criminal defense
The experience and precise litigation techiques made the prosecution visibly nervous at every hearing. the attorney was so prepared that even the judge recommended to the prosecutor to dismiss the case. after two hard fought motion we won the case.

Very helpful!
This being my first run in with the law of any kind I was extremely lost in the whole process, Carlos returned my phone call within a matter of minutes and offered some terrific legal help and advice to the point where I feel much more comfortable with my situation! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great lawyer.

Top Notch for Criminal Law and a Great Deal More
I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Fleites, professionally, as a business client, and as a personal client for over five years. Consequently, I have been able to see him in action repeatedly on a wide variety of matters for my company, friends and associates I have referred to him, and myself. I continue to utilize his services and recommend him to friends/associates for a number of reasons. Mr. Fleites is aggressive in his representation. I cannot overstate the importance of this. In every case, Mr. Fleites has exhibited only one priority; moving decisively to efficiently and quickly secure the best outcome for my company, the friends/associates I have referred to him, and myself. I have personally witnessed him cause prosecutors to walk away from serious felony charges (without even filing a motion) and plaintiffs to simply abandon suits. Most recently, with only two days to prepare, he had a $40,000 lawsuit against my company dismissed. Mr. Fleites knows the law and as a result gives straight answers. When facing serious litigation or a criminal proceeding, people and companies have to make decisions with far reaching (and possibly life altering) consequences. The ability to consult with someone like Mr. Fleites who gives detailed, specific, and reliable answers not only returns some measure of control (which is one of the first casualties of facing litigation or criminal charges) to the client, but also, unquestionably, leads to better outcomes. It is my nature to ask a lot of questions. In almost every case, he was able to answer them in detail and explain their significance to my case(s). On the one occasion when he didn't know the answer off the top of his head, he did not generalize or equivocate, he said so directly and rapidly got back to me with an answer I could take to the bank. This was a game changer for me. In short, I would highly recommend (and have recommended to friends and family members alike) Mr. Fleites to anyone seeking sharp, aggressive, results-oriented representation on criminal, civil, or commercial matters.

"I have had the pleasure of working alongside Mr. Fleites throughout the years. First, I began as his law clerk while waiting to begin law school. In this capacity, I was able to experience the attention to detail he has for each of his cases. I also realized that a succesful attorney not only defends his clients, but also cares for their ultimate result. Carlos was my mentor throughout my time in law school and was never too busy to help a future colleague. In the 10 years I have been an attorney, I have had the pleasure of working hand in hand with Carlos on both criminal and personal injury cases. Many of the litigation techniques I use today stem from his unique style. Carlos approaches all his cases with an equal amount of advocacy and aggressiveness and the results speak for themselves. If I needed an attorney, I would definitely want Carlos in my corner."
