This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

I hired Mr. O'Toole to represent me for my second DUI arrest in Miami. He called and text with me all the time and made me feel good about my chances. We went to court and I was impressed with how he handles himself.. he looks young but you can tell he is very experienced (I later learned he has 20 years of experience). He got my case dismissed in one month.
I was so impressed that I hired him to handle my personal injury case because my other lawyer was not very good. Mr. O'Toole made a few phone calls and resolved my injury case without any problem.
I recommend him for any criminal or injury case- he is the best!!

Mr O'Toole is one of saddest excuse for a attorney. He is only interested in making a buck. It is sad when the opposing attorney in a case recommends you find a new attorney. Mr. O'Toole almost got my case dismissed due to lack movement on the case. My recommendations is to move onto another attorney if your looking at him to represent you.

Mr. O’Toole had represented me for a few minor driving violations. I told him I had a minor car accident and that my car needed to be fixed. He offered to help me free of charge. When he found out the person that hit me was driving for a pizza company, Mr. O’Toole asked if I was injured. I told him I had some neck and back pain. He told me to go to a specialist and if I followed through with my treatment, he would get me a lot of money. A year later, he came through. He ended up settling my case for over $200,000!!! I would never have made a claim if it was not for him. He is the nicest lawyer I ever met. He is easy to talk to and always available. He is a master of personal injury!

I had the opportunity to work with Chris at the State Attorney's Office in the late 90's. Since then, we have worked together on many Personal Injury cases. In working with Chris, his knowledge of personal injury law is impressive. He has always had a great personality and that carries over to his dealings with his clients. He explains legal matters in a way a non-lawyer can understand, always returns telephone calls and emails, and always gives a bit more time to clients than need a little further explanation. His trail skills and ability to think on his feet in the courtroom make him a great trial lawyer.

I endorse this lawyer. Chris is among the top prosecutors I have tried cases against despite the hundreds I have opposed. Chris then focused on Personal Injury and was awarded one of the largest multi-million dollar verdicts against a city gaining attention on a national level. Having been in the jury trial arena for over 30 years, I bring Chris in on a co-counsel basis despite the countless civil lawyers I have been exposed to. My trust in Chris knows no bounds and because of this I will continue to maintain both a professional and personal relationship with this litigator. There is little I can say further to sing the praises of such a determined, successful and unselfish guy. Chris O'toole would be an extreme asset to any case or cause of action requiring an outstanding advocate. I cannot say enough about this top professional litigator and civil trial co counsel as it relates to his professional talents and abilities.
