Highly recommended
Brian Leifert is articulate, professional and overall--an excellent attorney. His level of expertise in proofreading and revising documents is impressive. Due to Covid-19, my case has gone on over one and a half years. However, during this entire time, Brian has and remains responsive in answering my emails, phone calls and text messages consistently without fail. Not even a best friend does that. Not every attorney will follow-through to this degree. Finally, his assistant Meredith is equally highly responsive in answering emails, taking messages, and sending documents which is greatly appreciated.

Thankful I called Leifert and Leifert
Our sincere thanks to Brian Leifert for achieving the best possible outcome in my son's probation violation case. Brian and Doug, along with their staff, were incredibly professional, kind, and courteous. Especially dealing with a frantic mother! My son can now continue on his recovery journey, and we are forever grateful.

A GREAT ATTORNEY
Me. Leifert is an amazing attorney. I found myself in an unexpected situation which required me to secure legal representation. Thankfully, I found Mr. Leifert. He is an amazing attorney. A consummate professional who genuinely cares about the client and works hard to achieve the best results possible. Mr. Leifert was very supportive and communitated with me every step of the way throughout the entire process. His knowledge, determination and professionalism ultimately led to my case being dismissed. An outcome I didn't think would happen! I will recommend him to all my family and friends if the need were to ever arise. A good attorney is hard to find but in Mr. Leifert, I've found a great attorney.

Great lawyer for a serious crime for a young adult
As a young adult I have made my share of blunders that would suggest I am more than an insubordinate young adult; thus, my criminal record would yield that I am an authentic criminal. To some, I feel this may hold true, but for others the certainty is not supported. Mr. Leifert is someone that has believed in me as a client and a friend from the moment that I met him and his welcoming staff in his office. He articulated a level of concern, professionalism, competence, attention, and knowledge; moreover, interest for a challenge that he said could and would return me to a regular life. He did not apply classic lawyer tactics to my case. He used an entire innovative, imaginative approach to help yield the finest possible result that would not only help maintain my freedom but also my innocence. He worked through a systematic network of legal tactics that were an essential and exceptionally soft, but also with the aggressive slap to gain the best promising results for my legal troubles. Because of Mr. Leifert, I never had to do prison time, I am free, and not on probation or community control in the state of Florida. I am also able to have a job and return to college; thus, I am also not afforded the same maze of rejection typical arrestees and convicted felons expect when they enter and depart from the legal system. Thanks to Mr. Leifert, I was equipped for this realism, and thanks to his leadership and support, I evaded this unpleasant ritual. I hope that Mr. Leifert continues to render assistance and encouragement to those in need. I think he is one of the greatest advocates in South Florida, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of counsel.

BEST LAWYER IN SOUTH FLORIDA!
My encounter with Brian S. Leifert, P.A. of Plantation was due to a young friend needing the services of a competent lawyer to defend him against a couple of charges, but he didn't have the money to pay Brian. I knew that he needed this lawyer's experienced services, so I paid the bill. During my encounters with Brian, I found him an incredible combination of both being professional and being friendly at the same time. Also, I found him extremely competent, as he successfully defending my young friend over several years, getting charges reduced or dismissed, or getting him early releases from either jail or Probation. I would highly recommend without reservation Brian S. Leifert to anyone seeking the services of a very knowledgeable, competent, and experienced lawyer.

Can't say enough good about him....
Best decision i ever made was to hire Brian too represent me. VERY knowledgable of the Florida system. He worked hard to get the best outcome possible, and it happened just that way. Hope to never need him again, BUT, if i do.......will not even think about it, will call him first.

Efficient criminal defenseM
Brian Leifert is very dedicated to his practice. His staff is knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. He is clearly the choice with his combined experience as a former state prosecutor and defense attorney. He takes calls 24/7 and consistently checks his voicemail. He has handled numerous traffic tickets for me. He was very patient, he answered all of my questions and explained everything in detail, including the particular situation/case and all possible outcomes. He seems to have a genuine care and concern, and really made me feel like he appreciated my business.
