This is a tale of 2 lawyers.
I was lucky that Lawrence is my lawyer. My dad hired another lawyer on an unrelated case a few years before me. Lawrence has qualities that are difficult to find in a criminal defense lawyer: humility, empathy, and honesty. Lawrence is actually a human being. The other guy, supposedly a guy with 30+ years experience, has a great smile and a huge office that takes up 1/2 a floor in some big corporate complex. A real big time hot shot. Big on promises short on results. I write this review not because of what Lawrence did for me, which he's been great by the way, but what he did for my dads case. With a quick background check, a couple of phone calls, and a few texts, Lawrence discovered the key piece of info we've been looking for to my dads case, and he did it in 1/2 a day. Its been 3 1/2 years for the other guy and the other guy couldnt figure this out or be bothered to. Thats years of my dads life wasted sitting on an ankle monitor at home under house arrest the whole time when this could have all been resolved so long ago. And he did it free of charge. He did it because he cares. The other guy takes up to a week to return our calls or texts. Lawrence is always available to speak within a couple hours if not immediately and even after hours and on weekends. My dad and I have spoken about the difference and he very deeply regrets not hiring Lawrence when he had the chance. Fortunately it looks like my dad is going to be ok thanks to Lawrence. Bonus points Lawrence also referred me to my family law attorney a couple years ago in a nasty custody dispute and she was a blessing too. If youve been charged with a criminal offense and need representation please dont get suckered in by these big hot shot lawyers with their big offices big smiles and big phony promises. Call Lawrence today.

Solid, Honest, No BS Attorney
Mr. Hashish has proved his himself as a well experienced, insightful, trusting attorney. He has worked on several cases for me which all yielded favorable results when I thought things were looking the worst for my situations. I hope I won't need his help again but If I ever do, I know I can count on him. Thank you Lawrence.

A knowledge & trustworthy advocate with heart
Mr. Hashish has been a wonderful lawyer for my family & I when a warrant was issued for my arrest and a violation of probation. He and his staff were kind-hearted and reliable for us in our time of need. There are many lawyers, looking to profit from our legal problems and who don't care about the outcome of our cases, but Mr. hashish is a man of integrity-he has it and requires it. Since the consultation, I could see that he was a one of a kind genuine lawyerthat I could trust, who listened to my case, gathered all the necessary legal paperwork needed & presented it before the judge, he truly took on the difficult circumstances I faced being that I was out of town, and because of his expertise and commitment my violation was thrown out and warrant lifted. And I called many lawyers, there were NONE like him. He has my respect and loyalty. His receptionist, Julie, was an absolute sweetheart too! When I was stressed out & worried dealing with my case, Mr. Hashish came to the rescue! May God bless him and expand his business.

Dedicated, Strong, Attorney
I hired Mr. Hashish for defense against an Injunction hearing. This injunction hearing was complex, and lasted over 5 hours (which is not the norm). Mr. Hashish was dedicated, resolute, and committed to ensuring all false allegations against me were disproven. His strong closing, attention to details resulting in great questions posed to the petitioner, resulted in a dismissal verdict. Mr. Hashish cares about his clients and goes above and beyond. I recommend him to anyone needing a Criminal Defense Attorney that cares and pays attention to the details.

Brilliant Attorney; Class Act
Lawrence Hashish is a brilliant attorney that cares about his clients. I needed his services for both a criminal and an injunction case filed against me. He provides excellent advice on the appropriate actions to take. His closing statements are thorough, well thought out, and strong closers. He was able to get the false accusations dismissed in my injunction hearing. He instilled the confidence in the justice system. I recommend him seeking a strong criminal defense attorney that is trustworthy and dependable. Thank you Lawrence for everything.

Excellent Lawyer
For the second time I was in need of Mr. Hashish. I was arrested for a DUI this time. With all the odds against me because of the details of my case Mr. Hashish did his magic. He got it lowered to wreckless driving. Let me remind you Mr. Hashish is not a DUI lawyer. He is a criminal defense lawyer; however he took my case because he is just that good at what he does and more! Not to mention he is very kind, curtious and it is always easy to get in contact with him. Thank you Mr. Hashish for your amazing work.

Amazing work
I spoke to a few more experienced lawyers then Mr. Lawrence about my case, occupied non violent burglary. Thay told me that they where not sure of the outcome and that i would probably not make the case drop. When I spoke to Mr. Lawrence he assured he would "Make it go away and get all the charges drop" he said. I saw the confidence in him on how he would make it all disapear so i put all my trust in him. In a very short period of time he called me to let me know the charges where dropped. I am very happy with his work and he is a great person as well. I recommend Mr. Lawrence 100%.

the BEST!
Attentive, knowledgeable, thorough, articulate, determined, and not afraid to fight for his client . . . in a nut shell, that's Lawrence A. Hashish. My husband was facing a minimum of 10 years for a crime he didn't commit and rather than push "deals" down our throat, Lawrence stood by us and fought for my husband's innocence. Before meeting Lawrence, every other attorney my husband and I met with could only say "let's hope for a decent deal". Out of desperation another lawyer was initially hired and I cannot stress how much of a mistake that was. This other attorney spent more time trying to get my husband to plead guilty and take a deal than actually look at the discovery in the case. Then Lawrence came around . . . a man of utmost integrity. Unlike everyone else, he actually took the time to not only speak to my husband, but to actually LISTEN to him. He takes nothing at face value and digs for the truth and then he fights for justice. Throughout the case, he was in constant communication with both my husband and I. He took the time to explain things to us and always discussed every step in advance. There was never a moment where we felt as if we were in the dark. In the end, thanks to Lawrence's hard work and dedication, the case against my husband was dismissed. I can honestly say, if I or any other member of my family ever find ourselves in need of an attorney, it's Lawrence A. Hashish I'll be calling.

***Best Attorney in South Florida***
Lawrence Hashish is the best criminal attorney in South Florida!!! Before we hired Lawrence my husband had 2 supposed high priced hot shot lawyers from a well known firm that were supposed to be tag teaming to get him off. They told me my husband was facing 3 years for Driver's license fraud and was trying to force him to cop out to it because of prior charges and not proceed with trying to fight to get him a lower sentence because they claimed that there was absolutely no way he could fight against the prosecutor and that the judge was the toughest in the county. Well he hired Lawrence and Lawrence strategically fought against the prosecutor and was able to get my husband off with credit time served and nothing else!!! When the old attorneys found out they were in so in shock with disbelief they had to call themselves to find out how he beat the charges!!! He is the best!! Run and hire this guy he will go above and beyond the call of duty...

Awesome
Two years in Feb, one of the coldest days ever in South Florida my 17 year old son and a few others were waiting for the city bus. My son and his friend decided to light the garbage can on fire to keep warm. The fire burned it's self down to nothing so they proceeded on the bus to go to school. While on the bus the fire ignited some how and the fire department was called. My son was arrested for second degree felony arson. We went to court for over a year and a half. The State Attorney was trying to have my son plead out with three years probation, as well as wanting to charge him as an adult. This kind of charge will never be excluded from your record and will ruin your life. Even after my son took fire classes, community service and couseling, the state would not budge. Lawrence was amazing- He proved that this case was crazy and my son did not commit arson. He got my sons charges dropped to a misdermeanor with a $50 court fine. I can not be happier.

My Hero
My 16 year old sat in the county jail for almost 10 months for a crime he did not commit. The detective and prosecutor knew the victim was lying, but they still wanted him to go to jail. He was charged with car-jacking. Mr. Hashish took over the case and things changed fast. He did his own investigation and knew we was telling him the truth. I felt like I had a million dollar lawyer for my son. He seems like a nice, sweet, quite man, but truth is, he is a monster in court. He don't stop fighting. The prosecutor tried to be sneaky, but Mr. Hashish would not let her get away with anything. He knows every little detail about the case and is always prepared. I know my son is in good hands. Mr. Hashish really cares about his clients and treats them like people.
