I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was faced with a marijuana possession charge that could've ruined my life and future forever. I could not believe what was happening to me I am a medical professional and a entrepreneur with a lot to lose. Maj knows Florida laws better than any lawyer I contacted to defend me against this charge over my head. He was always there when I called or texted him no matter what time it was. Unlike most lawyers after 5pm the could care less about what concerns you have. The work he put in for me was me amazing and all my charges were dropped!!! This guy has balls and does whatever he can to make sure that justice is served!!!!

I've been through my share of attorney sales pitches and statistics but very few if not one other even compete with Maj's service and ability.
This isn't my 1st rodeo with Maj and not only has he saved my reputation and future he improved it. I do my research to make sure I am as educated as possible on my case during the consultation but he layed it all on the table during the consultation, nothing was left out. Enabling me to make the best decision for myself regardless of whether or not I decided to choose him or not. I can assure you Maj will exhaust every option and angle possible before a compromise comes in to play. To top it off, Maj is a sweetheart -the judges, the prosecutors and other lawyers love him.
Long story short, Maj won my case (for the 2nd time) and my business. After our contract was up he went the extra mile and continued to work for me to make sure each loose end was tied up before he let me loose. Even still, Maj encourages a close line of communication. He is always there to offer advice and insight.
Maj, you're the man and I can't thank you enough!
Fun fact: This guy went to the #1 Aeronautical Engineering University in the country (NASA's prep school) and decided to be a lawyer. Do the math.

I can't say enough positive things about Maj Vasigh! He is patient, responsive and his answers to my questions were always clear, complete, and demonstrate a sophisticated knowledge of criminal law. I am so pleased with the results of my case and grateful to have met Maj!

One of the best choices done in life was to have Mr.Maj as my lawyer in that courtroom.Having felony charges I thought my life was at an end. Hearing my court case being dismissed was so great I ended up giving Mr.Maj a bear hug(haha true story).Without his experience and mad court skills I would have never been able to get my case dismissed. If you are in search for an awesome lawyer, search no farther. Mr. Maj is the lawyer for you HANDS DOWN.

I met Maj in a scary situation. I am a foreigner, at the time I was in a overstayed student visa, and I was arrested for a DUI. It was a scary situation for me since it could have definitive implications on my immigration status. After finding about Maj online, my husband and I called and were promptly taken care of, we talked on the phone and Maj was very patient, professional, and extremelly helpfull. He gave me and my husband the peace of mind of knowing we had someone responsible and capable to take care of our issue, who also helped us find a great immigration attorney that is still taking care of us. Maj was always a phone call away and was prompt to answer my questions and fears, was very patient explaining the whole process and very honest when we had a hiccup on my case (my fault) always maintaining me informed and confident in our big WIN. Me and my husband felt extremely safe and well guided by Mr Maj Vasigh, and will definitely recommend his services for anyone in need of a legal guardian angel. Thank you for taking care of us

I was arrested for dwsl after two dui arrests and was facing jail time. Every lawyer I consulted really didn't bother with my case, but after consulting with maj I trusted him. He's a man of his word and he vigorously represented me in court and because of him my life isn't in shambles.

When I first spoke with Maj, my legal situation was a mess, to put it lightly. I had several criminal charges pending, all of which I avoided, and moved out of state, starting over, but acquiring several failure to appear bench warrants. I contacted many lawyers over the phone(since I was in another state) and Maj was the only one who took down my information, researched my cases on his own personal time, and contacted me the next day with his personal advice and a quote on how much it would cost to have everything resolved. All of this time he put in to find out about my cases, just to give me a free consultation over the phone, when he didn't even know if I was seriously ready to proceed forward with cash. Which I wasn't, at that time. I actually didn't call him back for about another 6 months. When I finally was ready however, he got the ball rolling immediately. There were times when I was terrified of being arrested because of the warrants, and Maj was always available, even if just through texts, to assure me of the plan of action and to give me peace of mind that it was being handled. Maj contributed more support through reassurance, then I would expect any lawyer to. He went above and beyond to make himself always available to answer questions and concerns. Maj took a HUGE weight off of my shoulders immediately. One huge benefit he possesses is how familiar he is with all of the Judges and states attorneys in the area(since he works with them so often). He showed up to court more times then I even know, for postponements or other things that were needed to get the most desirable outcome possible, all while I was 1000 miles away in another state. He handled absolutely everything for me, with myself only having to show up ONE time. In the end, because of Maj's persistence and expertise, I walked away being charged with NOTHING. This is after a pending criminal felony, and 3 other criminal misdemeanors, all from separate occurrences! It's miraculous that Maj was able to achieve the outcome that he did, so if you are worried or stressed over your legal situation at all, work with Maj and he will take SO much stress out of the equation for you!!!

Mister Vasigh is a very intelligent, creative, and passionate lawyer. He is one of the most staunch advocates of individual rights and liberties I have ever known in my 17 year legal career. He uses his wit, preparation, and skill to present most strongly the causes of his clients. He truly believes in the legal tenets of individual freedoms. I am proud to serve the community with this well loved and respected fellow lawyer, and I endorse him.
