DUI Defense Attorney
Jason Kaufman is an Amazing Attorney!! He was referred to me by family members who have been using him for various reasons for many years of their legal issues with the most outstanding results. He has consistently delivered on various legal issues time & time again. I was nervous & scared until I met Jason, he laid everything in his plan out and made sure I understood 100% and took care of everything from there. Jason Kaufman is and always will be our friends, family and my Attorney for life!! Thank you Jason!! I appreciate you!!

Best in Broward!
Jason is an extremely knowledgeable legal professional with an effective process from start to finish. People make mistakes. I referred a close friend to Jason in their time of need after a DUI and he moved things along much faster than we could have anticipated.

Great defense Lawyer
I liked Mr.Kaufman as he helped me with a fraudulent domestic violence case in south Florida while I was handling a Family court case in North Florida. He was able to get the injunction dropped against me in south Florida and he offered A+ service as well as explaining things to me. I would recommend him to anyone in South Florida.

Great Attorney and I am Very Grateful
I hired Jason to defend me on a Battery charge which I was accused of out of spite by someone. I was in a horrible situation. Like many of you out there, I have a good life, good job, and this situation scared the heck out of me. I went online to try and look at some good reviews for a defense attorney and found Jason. I went to his office and he reassured me, immediately found a defense approach and attacked the charge with this approach. The State Attorney didn't even bother bringing the charges to trial because they knew they weren't going to win. All I can say is we won. We won. Thank you Jason. I feel like you saved my life.

Excellent trail lawyer
Mr kaufman was very proffessional. His major efforts and good strategy prevented me from going to jail or even getting probation. I knew i was not guilty but unfortunately it still takes a skilled lawyer to prove that. I can finally put the past behind me and move foward. Mr kaufman truly cared about my case unlike many attorneys and public defenders. He showed me alot of respect and treated me like a family member. I recommend Mr kaufman to anybody that needs an attorney for something small or even as big as a trail case

Great Attorney
I found myself in a jam and Jason was recommended to me. Jason handled the case better than I thought possible. The outcome could have been really bad but he was able to nogotiate a very good plea agreement for. I would definitely recommend Jason as your defense counsel.

Jason Kaufman is a terrific attorney
Mr. Jason Kaufman is a Florida defense attorney who will obtain the best legal outcome possible through expert representation in court, meticulous legal research, and vigorous pursuit of his client’s legal rights. I have known Mr. Kaufman for one year during which time he successfully represented my son. In court, the prosecutor and judge listened carefully to Mr. Kaufman’s arguments and it was obvious that they held him in the highest regard. It was also evident that Mr. Kaufman respected my son and was concerned about his future, because his vision of a legal solution included treatment for the underlying cause of the felony arrest, substance abuse. Mr. Kaufman prevailed over a justice system that was initially focused on maximum punishment without rehabilitation, but ultimately was convinced to consider rehabilitation as part of the legal solution. Mr. Kaufman’s relentless legal efforts and advocacy kept my son from giving up and gave him and our family hope for his future. I highly recommend Mr. Jason Kaufman, he is professional, he is ethical, he is a legal expert, he is respected by his peers, he eloquently defends his clients and backs up his words with thorough legal research. On behalf of my son and our family, thank you Jason.

Mr. Jason Kaufman is an Excellent Attorney!
Jason Kaufman was recommended to me and I couldn't be more appreciative! He has proven to me that attorneys can be all that you want them to be in a time of need. Mr. Kaufman was easy to reach when important questions come up, kept me informed, showed warm compassion, and got the job done with knowledge, precision and best of all great results! My son is now free of that terrible ordeal, we can be together again as a family, and I would and have highly recommended him to those in need of his services. Wow, I'm glad that's over and done! Many thanks to Mr.Kaufman!

JASON KAUFMAN, CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY 'LOOK NO FURTHER' EFFECTIVE AND VERY THOROUGH
My experience with Jason Kaufman over the past six weeks has been above and beyond what I could have ever expected or asked for. My son 21 years of age was in a very desperate situation and had violated his is probation. As a parent you can only image the feeling alone needing to make the right decision and finding the right attorney. Jason responded to my call immediately and then met with my son in the county jail the very same day. He was honest and transparent about what to expect regarding the costs in order to proceed and gave me a financial plan that I could follow which was more than fair. He was attentive during the hearings and listened to my needs as I struggled through each hearing for my son. He also made suggestions as to what was needed for the final hearing and plea. He made it known at all times what my son was facing legally and what the prosecutor was asking for which was "Prison". In the final hearing of my son I watched as Jason Kaufman and the Prosecutor presented the case to the Judge which both evidence and questions to the witnesses. This was a very critical in the manner that set the stage for how the judge would sentence my son. Lastly, Jason set the stage for the Judge to understand that my son was not a candidate for prison but for consequence that would help him get back into society with the help my son desperately needed. The Judge ruled positive against all the odds we were facing from the beginning of the case and up to the very last minute. This was as a result of Jason Kaufman not giving up for one minute and fighting to the very end. I highly recommend anyone that is need of an attorney that truly cares, has a sense of urgency, communicates honestly and professionally with passion.

Will Recommend!
Jason was very professional and knowledgeable. I felt I could call him anytime with any question! He was very helpful in preparing me for court and also walked me through step by step how he planned to handle my case. I was extremely nervous because this was my second offense but Jason was very real and positive with me which made me feel hopeful. I would recommend Jason to everyone!

Always on your side for best possible results!
Jason has represented and is currently representing me for serious felony matters. One occured 3 years ago and was always there to answer my questions and calls. With this very serious case he acts as if this is the only case he has and is extremely involved. He is very honest and ready to render the appropriate resources to get the best outcome .

WorksTireless in protecting his clients
Jason is qualified, experienced and effective. He can make the difference of going to prison or having charges dismissed. He is competent, reliable,compassionate. Treats his clients as individuals not just another case. He has personally saved a life in our family and no matter how small the charge or serious the charge, he is prepared to defend and fight the fight for you. A good criminal defense Attorney is a must this is the difference of the impact of your outcome. It is vital to choose competency.

Excellent Law Firm
I recieved a DUI back in 2011. I was referred to Mr.Kaufman by an associate of mine. Mr.Kaufman is one of the best lawyers (if not the best) I have ever had represent me. All of my run-in's with the law have been traffic related. I have used other attorney's to represent me and more times than not, I was unhappy with the results. The evidence against me by the state was quite strong. Road side test were poor, I refused the breath test, and gave many self incriminating statements to the arresting agency. From my first meeting with Mr.Kaufman, he gave me a set price, which was roughly around $5k. I was not able to meet that amount and Mr.Kaufman was more than willing to work with me and set me up on a payment plan. Mr.Kaufman saved my D/L from the DMV (which is rare in a DUI case), I had no restrictions on my D/L. Mr.Kaufman prepared diligently and spent many hours working on my case. He was always available to assist me with any legal ques./concerns I had. Eventually he got the charges reduced to reckless driving, saved my career, and my future. He did an excellent job representing me, and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal defense in criminal cases.

Professional and honest
Jason represented me on a very sensitive matter, and did an incredible job through the entire process. He told me one price at the beginning, and it didn't change like most lawyers.
