Exceptionally skilled and intelligent combined with a willingness to work hard
Len was brought in to assist a team of lawyers and other professionals on a highly complicated criminal matter that had been ongoing for years. He had come highly recommended as a very smart and talented attorney who could work well as part of a team. Len soon proved to be exceptionally skilled and intelligent and constantly demonstrated a drive to work hard - constantly completing his work well in advance of deadlines so as to facilitate review by the rest of the folks working the case. By virtue of how incredible his work product was, he soon replaced the board certified criminal appellate attorney we had on retainer as Len's research and writing was far superior to what we had been seeing previously. Within months of bringing Len into the case we were able to get all charges summarily thrown out by the Court based in no small part on the research and written pleadings drafted by Len - his work saved the client from spending many many years in prison. Absolutely can not say enough positive things about the quality of the work this gentleman is capable of - seemingly effortlessly too.

A true Godsend!
I have to say that retaining Mr. Feur was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I contacted him during one of the worst times of my life. Stress levels were exceedingly high. Mr. Feur's calm, professional, no-nonsense approach helped to alleviate my fears considerably from the outset. His compassion and understanding for my plight was exactly what I needed, and frankly was quite a refreshing change from the other lawyers I spoke with. His service for me and my family went far above and beyond what I could have reasonably expected. As a praying man, I asked God for His intervention on my behalf. I absolutely believe that Leonard Feur was God's answer. I can't begin to overstate what a blessing he has been to me and my family. He is not just a great lawyer, but one of the finest men I have ever met. I wouldn't dream about saying that about just anyone. If I found him to be less than that, I would certainly state that honestly here and now. I would give him my very highest recommendation.

When Only The Best Will Do !!
When Only The Best Will Do! When you are in distress, confused and concerned, it is difficult to think clearly and make rational decisions . That, in addition to not understanding a legal process complicates matters even more. This is when I found myself speaking with Leonard Feuer, who I was assured was the best of the best. Leonard explained the law, outlined in clear layman terms the entire process, as well as my alternate options and their consequences. No "sugar coating" .He was reassuring, articulate, personable, knowledgeable and extremely effective. Leonard's unrivaled analytical skills, coupled with his previously mentioned attributes resulted in a successful settlement outcome for me. When it really matters and you need all round excellence, as well as perseverance, coupled with an unrivalled success record, Leonard is the way to go!

Brilliant, patient and dedicated
When I found myself in an unexpected legal situation as part of a custody case, I hired Leonard based upon a recommendation and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. He’s hands-down the most competent attorney I’ve worked with. He fought on my side for nearly two years, eventually getting the charges nolle prossed. I fully recommend Leonard.

Ethical, Trust Worthy, Remarkable Character
Mr. Feuer is an exceptional lawyer, I was in a difficult situation and in need of help from an ethical attorney who would actually advocate on my behalf. Choosing the wrong attorney previously was costly in all areas, financially, emotionally, and the experienced diminished my faith in humanity, until Leonard Scott Feuer, Esq. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe this attorney. I will be forever grateful, he’s one of the few honest, descent attorneys in FL. I’ve relocated back to a state where true justice is served, my experience with FL.’s legal system was corrupt at best, with the exception of the incredible lawyer who I was Blessed to find.

Compassionate and Respected
Mr Feuer represented me in a complicated and emotional case. He was always compassionate and took a lot of time to listen to my concerns and fears. Most importantly, he is respected by the judiciary and opposing attorneys, inside and outside the courtroom. I appreciate everything he did for my family and I. Eternally grateful.

Outstanding lawyer who was by my side each and every step of the way.
Mr. Feuer helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. Dealing with a legal situation is a scary time, but Mr. Feuer handled it like a true professional. My situation was far from easy to handle and he was always there on the other end of the phone or writing an email back immediately. I would recommend him to anyone in the South Florida area over and over again. thank you Mr. Feuer.

The fiercest defense
Leonard Feuer may very well be the fiercest defense attorney in South Florida and is obviously a product of many, many years of deep study in the practice of criminal defense. Leonard's time is of potent intensity and that was clear to me when I read the transcripts of his direct examination of the trooper in my case during a deposition as well as the trial (which I witnessed in person). Leonard's thinking process extends beyond that of your average attorney; he thinks like an engineer and then he executes a strategy that no one can see coming. Aside from that, the guy is quite likable and wears his integrity on his sleeve. But.....hopefully I'll never have to hire him again =].

Professional and knowledgeable lawyer!
I was terrified that when I violated probation I would go straight to jail. No pass go, no collecting $200. (The original offense was a DUI.) Also, the violation itself was a whole other problem, in a different county. I called Leonard's office because his name kept coming up as a recommended in West Palm Beach. I was told he was "the best of the best" and knew my freedom was extremely important to me. I am the proud mom of two young children. I called Leonard's office on a Monday afternoon just before 5 o'clock. I breifed Leonard on my issues and he calmly and caringly explained the parts beteeen the lines and gave me his recommendation of what should be done. He made me feel a whole lot better, and came across as genuine. I had called at 4:55, so he gave me his CELL PHONE number (before I hired him) and proceeded to inform me to call him anytime and that he'd be happy to represent my case. He was there every moment I needed him from then on. The way he handled informing my judge of my VOP was thoughtful professional and left a good impression to the judge that I did not take this matter lightly. The day we met in court to address the fact that I had violated my probation he was extremely knowledgeable and put his seamless skills right to work. I was Extremely proud he was my lawyer compared to anyone else in that courtroom. He even addressed the offense that caused my violation of probation (in another county) at a later date in a courtroom I did not have to attend.

Best Attorney You Can Hire.
I hired Mr. Leonard Feuer based on his vast knowledge and experience. He kept me in the loop with phone calls or text messages all through out the case. He was highly recommended by another attorney in Ft Lauderdale. He was able to get all of the charges DISMISSED in a relatively short period of time. He showed professionalism, dedication and compassion to my family and myself during this difficult time for us. If any criminal charges were to come up with any friends or family. Leonard would be the one I trust to go see again. Thank you for all that you did for me!

DUI Representation
I was recommended by Mr Feuer by an Attorney that I highly respect. I was not disappointed. Despite his hectic schedule, Mr Feuer took the time to fully understand and address my major concerns. He was not only highly competent, but he displayed kindness and empathy for me. Mr Feuer clearly explained the options in my very complex case, and he guided me to making the best decision for me and for my family, which ended up being acceptance of a Plea Deal. Next to my Divorce, the DUI experience was the most traumatic and humbling experience I have ever encountered. It would have been much worse without Mr Feuer. Mr Feuer's fees are extremely reasonable and fair....and he saw me through the entire process without ever asking for additional fees, despite the complications! In the end, Mr Feuer's experience and skills in the courthouse enabled me to be released from probation 4 months early. I'd highly recommend Mr Feuer. He is a man of great skills, integrity, experience, and compassion.

Simply the BEST
Leonard Feuer is not just an amazing lawyer, but an incredible human being. He cares not just about you, but how the case effects your family. I was facing life in prison for a crime I did not do. It took Mr. Feuer two and a half years and his skills to prove to a jury of my peers, my justification for self defense. He stood by me every step of the way, acted as a lawyer, psychologist, friend, and voice of reason when needed. I will always be indebted to Leonard for his faith and tenacity to be the instrument of justice. Thank you Leonard, you are the most special person I have ever met! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions in hiring Len, just ask him for my cell, but know he will be the BEST thing for you if you have a legal issue, bar none.

The best experience I could have hoped for, after my DUI arrest
After getting arrested for DUI, I emailed and called nearly every criminal defense attorney in the area (probably around 25 different lawyers). Leonard was the first to call me back (literally minutes after I emailed him, on a weekend). He took the time to personally explain the situation, listen to all the details on my case, and overall make me feel more comfortable with exactly how all this works. After finishing our talk, he gave me a quote (which was very reasonable), and I told him I'd call him back. After that I spoke with all the other lawyers I contacted, and was shocked by the difference. The majority quoted 5-10x what Leonard did, and overall acted like they didn't care about me or the case. So I hired Leonard in the end, and couldn't be more happy with the decision. Although my case didn't qualify for the DUI diversion program, he was able to talk with the prosecutor and get the penalties reduced (even though another person, with an identical case that day ended up with much worse). After attending court with him, and getting a sentence less than I was anticipating, I couldn't have been more relieved. After the case was over, I mentioned to him that I might need to travel out of country at sometime during the probation. He explained how that works, and that if I needed his help in front of the judge ever, he'd do it and wouldn't charge me any more. Well that day came, and he kept true to his word. Not only that, but the prosecutor and judge knew him, and it was approved much easier than I could have expected. Overall, it was a relief having him as my attorney. And I can say with 100% confidence that he is better than any of those attorneys asking for a small fortune. Honestly if you're unsure, just give Leonard a call yourself, and I'm pretty sure you'll see what I mean.
