The best lawyer in miami
My experience with Mr.Gonzalez was amazing. He took the case 2 days prior to the trial. He took the time to explain the process and the legal principle of my case. I reccomend this lawyer to anybody who is trying to dismiss or reach a verdict of not guilty in there case. Thank you for everything.

Great Criminal Attorney!
I was unjustly charged with a Felony for taking back one of my employees mobile phones after she was dismissed from her post. She called police. They arrested me, charged me with Strong Arm Robbery and I spent the next two days in jail. I hired Dennis when I was released. He took over and turned a Felony into a Misdemeanor, then a Dismissal! Thanks Dennis, for finding justice in this case!!

A True Professional
If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing an attorney... Dennis is the best. I was given Dennis name by my brother in law yes I was nervous about the process and how much it would cost to get help. It was a very stressful prior to meeting with him, not knowing . I met with him and immediately felt a sense of relief from the situation. It's like I handed him my problems and left it there for him to take care of. He was personable and always quick to respond to my concerns. I am indeed grateful for his dedication to his job and I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need . Dennis Gonzalez a true Professional.

Dennis Gonzalez Review
I hired Dennis because I needed some representation with a Battery case. From the moment I arrived in his office, everyone was pleasant and though I arrived slightly late this was not an issue. Dennis met with me almost immediately after I arrived. How rare is it these days that you receive that kind of personal attention from an attorney. His price was extremely fair and I am certain of this because I called atleast 3 other attorneys before going to see Dennis. Dennis got my case completely resolved without me even having to go to court. I would recommend Dennis to my friends and family with no hesitation.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Gonzalez was prompt and ready to handle my case. He communicated with me well about how he was going to proceed and handle the case. After the trial, he immediately communicated to me the outcome of the case. I had hired other attorneys previously and none of them has been as fast and well versed as Mr. Gonzalez. I highly recommend him.

Reliable and Great Communicator
Dennis is great attorney, who kept me informed of my case status and changes. The court system actually made a data entry error in my case which Dennis identified and addressed with the courts even before receiving a hearing. He is reliable and I highly recommend him.

Quality of the Service
Whoever needs the service that Dennis gives could contact him as he is an excellent attorney. He has kept me informed on my case and the status of the case. The results have been reduced from a 1st time DUI to a reckless driving pending the completion of the program. I have not attended court as my attorney has been present for me. I recommend to contact him for your service and you will not be disappointed.
