This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
John’s comment: “I have never been disciplined for any type of improper client representation, and I have represented over 50,000 clients. This was a minor technical violation due to an old advertisement letter being mistakenly stuffed into an envelope by a member of my staff. The older advertisement had, in fact, been preapproved by the Florida Bar but was now improperly worded due to an update/change in the Bar's wording requirements.”
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.
John’s comment: “This in no way was a result of any type of improper client representation. As a young lawyer, I was unaware that certain forms of written advertisement had to be submitted to the Florida Bar for approval prior to disbursement. Another attorney's secretary received one of my advertisements and he turned it into the Bar. She never even hired our office. I was required to attend a class at which the advertising rules were reviewed.”

My week started off GREAT! Thanks to Mr. Golden, my case (stop sign citation) was dismissed. I happen to come across his number while researching online, and I am truly satisfied and thankful that I chose the right person. I was a bit nervous; however, Mr. Golden was very informative and straightforward. I had plenty of questions and he answered them. Even when I had more questions, he called back within a reasonable time. I thank you and your team for handling my case! I know who to call next time, without a doubt! Thanks again :)

Mr John listened to my problems and helped me as best as he could with my speeding ticket. He went to court for me and with his help, and his team I didn't receive any points on my license and the judge didn't suspend my license. He got me to pay reasonable price for the court. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you for all your help Mr John

I endorse this lawyer. It is with great pride that I endorse attorney John Golden. I have known John for over 12 years and have personally worked with him in many cases throughout the years, and witnessed his dedication in providing a caring and professional approach to the practice of law. He quickly grasps all tasks at hand when resolving a client's legal issue, and takes the initiative to go beyond what may need to be addressed in a client's case. That coupled with his acute analytical acumen and understanding of the law, are truly what makes him an excellent attorney, and one that I fully endorse and recommend to our clients.
