This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Elias’s comment: “None of my Client's rights and remedies were jeopardized by my actions or non-actions in this matter. It was prudent for me to accept a disciplinary action and resolve the matter with the Florida Bar so that I can continue to serve my Clients and take care of my family.”
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Elias’s comment: “None of my Client's rights and remedies were jeopardized by my actions or non-actions in this matter. It was prudent for me to accept a disciplinary action and resolve the matter with the Florida Bar so that I can continue to serve my Clients and take care of my family rather than keep this matter open for years to come. The Florida Bar sometimes takes 6 years to file a case.”

I love my attorney. Attorney Elias Leonard Dsouza is a legal genius. He has successfully defended my foreclosure from his Plantation law office for over seven years, has taken me through a chapter 13 bankruptcy, helped me get a fresh start, and helped me restore my credit. He has been a blessing for me and my family. I will continue to refer my friends, family and co-workers to his office for all foreclosure, bankruptcy, and any legal matters.

I was referred to Elias by my friend Esther. My husband was just hospitalized, and I just received a foreclosure notice from my mortgage company. I am so glad I went to see him. From the moment I met him I felt at so much ease. Elias explained to me in simple clear language my rights, options, remedies regarding foreclosure defense, bankruptcy, chapter 7, chapter 13, and credit restoration. Elias was patient and a great listener. By the time I left his office, I felt like a huge concrete block was lifted off my shoulders. He is not just an attorney but a kind and compassionate human being. I will recommend Elias to anybody and everybody without hesitation.
