I am a professional health care provider. I had 2 charges aggravated assault with a firearm and simple battery. I used my own criminal defense attorney initially and the best he had was he could keep me out of jail but I would be a convicted felon with 5 years probation. I was fortunate the victim and another witness were not deposed by my former attorney but Ken was able to depose them. I didn't see how I could prove innocence with no witnesses to back me up and 3 for the victim. Ken got a better deal initially I refused. I was fortunate as a conceal permit holder to have the case dismissed under stand my ground. I was fortunate not to go to trial if I lost would have served mandatory 3 years prison sentence. Ken was able to do the final 2 depositions eliciting judicial interference and the other friend in contradicting the victim as to what happened. I'm just an ordinary citizen but had a judge under subpoena and the 2nd in command of the state under subpoena. Ken told me they would be blocked from testifying but wanted them on list of witnesses for interfering. The victims dad was best friend with a sitting judge. I hired Ken on my own. i was given several alternatives from family. I hired him due his history as a prosecutor and conviction rate. During the 2 days of my stand ground hearing Ken successfully discredited 3 officers, the victim, and one of the victims friends who just told the truth. I easily won a motion to suppress but had to wait 2 months for my next court date in which I received a dismissal from the judge. In court with Ken he was so forward thinking the prosecution and myself could keep up with angles he helped create in innocence. I owe Ken Padowitz my livelihood. If anybody is not sure to hire him ask him for my number and I will convince you. Thanks Ken you made it seem like just another day in the courthouse but you saved my livelihood.

Ken Padowitz is by far the best Lawyer you could ever ask for! I was in alot of Hot water...i was going to lose my family and face prison time. Ken told me during my consultation do you want any lawyer or the best Lawyer! Do you want a ford pinto or a high power Ferrari? After seeing all the accolades je has i knew then I couldn't risk my future into just anyones hands. An just like a Ferrari he took off and got to work super fast, each time we were in court he made everything seem effortless...walk in and walkout, and i mean literally walk in,"Hello your Honor! Blah,blah,blah" 30 seconds later out of the court room! With things moving forward in my favor! And at the end he got the state attorney to drop all charges! Plz believe me when i tell you if it weren't for Ken, i wouldn't be writing this review right now because i would be locked up!

Absolutely the best trial lawyer. Extremely confident in the courtroom. Very strong law knowledge , super smart, tactical. Psychological skills with the jury were incredible. I went to trial and with him and I can't be more satisfied with the results. NOT GUILTY !

Ken Padowitz saved me from over zealous cops and unreasonable prosecutors. I interviewed four other top lawyers and Ken was hands down superior on every level. His skill in court is unmatched. He had a total command of the law and he fought for me like HIS life depended on it. He destroyed the arresting officer on cross examination and delivered me from my nightmare. I cannot say enough of my admiration and gratitude for Ken Padowitz.

Mr. Padowitz is caring, thorough and always prepared. He was able to keep a friend out of prison and closed the probation sentence early.
I, like all of the other reviewers on this site, highly recommend Mr. Padowitz.

Ken Padowitz rescued my family and I at the darkest time of our lives. I am a former attorney and was charged with three financial felonies. My adult sons were also charged. Ken gathered a "Dream Team" of attorneys to protect us. Through diligence, intelligence and aggressive advocacy, Ken and his team were able to get the charges against my sons completely dismissed. They also afforded me the opportunity to plead "No Contest" to a single 2d degree felony and amazingly, were able to convince the Judge to withhold adjudication meaning I am not a convicted felon. In addition, he secured civil releases so that this matter is truly put to rest. Ken was there for us every step of the way and we could not be more grateful. I would recommend Ken Padowitz without hesitation or reservation to anyone unfortunate enough to need the best in criminal defense.

Kenneth Padowitz didn't save me once but four times from going to prison! When all odds where against me even the judge Ken put his foot down and went above and beyond what any other attorney would have done. All my charges are fellony with a judge that doesn't do second chances. Ken made that possible! Again I had four violations of probation with judge Destry and the last one was DISMISSED all due to the effort that ken put into my case! Now I'm home with my family and have every reason to do the right thing! I'm so blessed for God to have put Kenneth Padowitz into my life!! Thank you Ken for going above and beyond anyone else!

Certain things happen for a reason, and finding Ken was one of them. I cannot begging to explain what you have giving back to me by fighting for my little family as it was your own. You gave me life back! There was many times where I lost hope and felt as if things where turning for the worst. But you always asked us to believe in you and to trust that you where going to do everything in your power to get us the best deal. And that's exactly what you did! Thank you ken thank you for your countless hours of hard work and effort you put into our case. You are the true definition of a lawyer and my three children are very lucky daddy had a man like you fight for him. Sincerely your clients wife :)

First I want to say I was extremely impressed by Kenneth Padowitz resume on Avvo and compared him to all the other lawyers on this site with a 10 rating. He has been a professor in Law School and has a deep resume when compared to other attorneys. Just compare for yourself and you will see what I mean.
We picked Mr. Padowitz after seeing 5 other lawyers. He was the only one who gave us the assurance that there wouldn't be any open ended fees regarding the case. The other lawyers we talked to all scared us senseless and didn't commit to a contract with a fixed price. With Mr. Padowitz, there were no surprises and he was very straight forward.
Kenneth Padowitz was extremely accessible and always had an open door attitude any time we had questions. I even accidently called Kenneth at 1 am by mistake and he called me be back to confirm everything was ok.
During the case he always gave us step by step details and was very comforting during our time in stress. At court dates, he was always on time and was always ready for the prosecutors.
I would recommend him for anyone who needs an experienced Criminal Defense trial attorney for serious charges. He was worth every penny and I sleep good at night knowing if needed, my criminal defense lawyer is one of the best in South Florida.
Also, on a side note, I did see Mr. Padowitz several times on MSNBC giving interviews about other cases in the news. It felt good seeing my Defense Lawyer on TV giving advice to Journalist regarding cases that were on their show.
