I was arrested for a non violent civil disobedience action when the city of Fort Lauderdale decided to ban feeding homeless people in public where they live. During the course of my arrest my cash was taken by the jailers and I was given a debit card with transaction fees attached. This turns out to be a violation of my civil rights. Sabarish Neelankanta and the team from the Human Rights Defense Center in Lake Worth Florida challenged this and won. I recieved a cash settlement in compensation for this injustice. I couldn't be happier with my lawyers in this case. They worked hard and long to right this injustice and the case was settled to my great satisfaction. These attorneys aren't just great lawyers, they are great people working for the rights of individuals and against the exploitation of those who happen to find themselves in such a situation. Faith in humanity restored and a nice cash award recieved. Thank you Sabarish and your co_council for your great efforts. I will always remember you for bringing me a feeling that sometimes justice is served to the little guy. Keep up the good work. Together we may be able to make this system more equitable for everyone and rid these systems of the exploitation that is rife within them!

I feel very fortunate that we hired Sabarish Neelakanta for my son's defense in a very serious criminal case. He was from the beginning responsive to our son's situation , patient in explaining the implications of the charges to us and to our son and knowledgable in giving him his best options and best defense. He was a calming and rational presence when emotions were running high. He gave us and our son much needed support through a process that was daunting and slow at best. He was throughout the entire process and to this day has been the ultimate professional, a man of true integrity and I would recommend him without question.

Not knowing the outcome of what life throw's at you can be hard enough to handle, but with a man like Mr. Neelakanta in your corner, it makes a tough time a little more bearable.
From the first time we met, my wife and I knew that he was the man who could handle the situation that could potentially destroy our lives. Mr. Neelakanta was ever the consummate professional, having the answers for the tough questions that we had to face. Through our almost 2 year ordeal in the Florida judicial system, he stood by my side & helped me hold my head high, and was a rock for my wife when she felt she couldn't be strong.
He was always on time for meetings/court hearings, and always kept us up-to-date on the case; there weren't any surprises.
If you are reading this review because you are in a tough situation and are looking for guidance, contact Mr. Neelakanta. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you for all you have done for us, Sab. God Bless.

Mr. Neelakanta is among the most intelligent and hard working attorneys I have ever litigated against. His razor-sharp intellect, coupled with his significant work ethic, combines to create a powerful ability to persuade judges and juries alike.

I endorse this lawyer. Sabarish is one of the most hardworking, dedicated lawyers in the field. He is respected by fellow criminal defense attorneys as well as state attorneys and judges. His litigation skills, whether trial, motion practice, or otherwise, are excellent. I would highly recommend Sabarish Neelakanta.
