Brian obtained the best legal outcomes not once but twice. He is the lawyer you need to hire because not only is he professional and knows the justice system but Brian is accessible; he calls, texts and emails you back. I appreciated his candor and the patience he had with us. Brian kept us informed every step of the way throughout the process.

Satisfied counsel
Brian Palacios was the third lawyer in town that I called. From the start, he answered every question with great detail and did not sugar coat any part of the process. I am not familiar with legal matters and have never required legal assistance before. Brian was very honest and true to his word, at less cost than the “bigger firms.” It feels very lonely trying to navigate the legal system, and Brian makes it easy as possible. During the course of the proceedings Brian answered every little question that I had, probably many repeating ones too. He was always available and prompt with his replies. Everything before this would solidify a great review. However to top everything off, my case ended up being dismissed after video evidence was analyzed and questioned. Do not think twice about picking Brian Palacios.

Best Attorney in Tampa
Due to some self negligence, I found myself in a rough spot with the law. Upon consulting with a few attorneys, I decided Brian was my best choice. Brian was extremely professional, communicative, and very easy to deal with through the whole process. With my circumstances, I feel as though Brian got me a result that I could only hope for. I strongly recommend Brian for any attorney needs if you find yourself in a hard spot like I did.

Selecting Brian as my representative was a great call.

Professional, Personable, and Thorough
Choosing to work with Mr. Palacios for my traffic case was the best decision I could’ve made. He listened well, quickly assessed my situation, and built a strategy that he executed with efficiency. Throughout the experience, he stayed in touch and patiently answered all my questions…setting my mind at ease. I’m just a regular person who made a mistake. He helped me to move on with confidence. What a professional!

Gave Hope - reduced charge
Mr. Palacios helped get me through a really tough time in my life. I had called multiple locations and had options but I knew he was the best lawyer for my DUI case when he said in a genuine manner he'll do everything he can to get a fair outcome and fight for me. He I was able to get my DUI case reduced to a reckless driving. He eased my worries and gave me hope when I was at my lowest in life. It was a wake up call; it all worked out and I am very grateful to Mr. Palacios.

Great attorney
Brian Palacios represented me during one of the most difficult and stressful times of my life. Of note, upon our first meeting I could tell he had thoroughly reviewed all the paperwork that I had supplied him, asking pertinent and relevant questions, which immediately helped put me at ease. I was completely unfamiliar with how the court system worked as I had never been involved in anything litigious before. Brian was there every step of the way, explaining the process to me and keeping me updated with each new development. He was available to me day or night, 24/7 via text or call. Brian was aggressive and extremely competent in the court room and I felt thankful to have him on my side. He was consistently able to predict the other side’s next steps and counter them. He was very knowledgeable and although I was anxious throughout the process, having Brian right there next to me the whole time made me feel better. Also important to note during Covid times, all of my hearings were done via Zoom. Brian navigated this with ease, presenting all of my evidence electronically in a very methodical and structured way. His organization was an asset that was very much appreciated. After 4 grueling hours in the courtroom, Brian was able to win my injunction case and get me the protection I needed. I hope to never need his services again, but if I do I feel much more comfortable knowing that I have him if I do.

Very Best
The rating should be 10 Stars not 5 the very best attorney I have ever came across. Since the moment the first call went out Brian, was on top of this Criminal Case. With the old attorney she wanted us to take a plea of jail time. Mr. Palacios stepped in and got the case dismissed. You will not go wrong with this attorney fighting for you in court I recommend him on any case he will fight for you 150%. The experience and knowledge speak for itself he fought for us every step of the way. Thank you always Brian blessings.

Sealed My Case!
If you are in need of a 2nd chance in life because of your charge, I most definitely recommend to you Attorney Brian Palacios! He was straight-forward from the very beginning; really great at explaining everything and helping with the entire process of sealing my theft case. He could always be reached via phone or email on any day and at any time. Very professional, punctual, organized, and treated me as his client like an actual valuable human being versus the ugly criminal stigma the theft charge had hovering over my name. He reviewed all the paperwork with me, line for line, and hand-delivered it to the courts in a very timely fashion. At the end of it all, he won my case (my case is now sealed) so that I may happily move on with my life and finally be able to pursue my life goals that have been stagnant due to my charge.

Great Lawyer
Brian was very helpful and attentive to my case. I was charged with a DUI. He so far was able to overturn an 18 month suspension with the DMV. Due to Covid we are uncertain of my court date with the criminal side, however I have full faith he will get a best case scenario for me. He’s organized, quick to respond, and very informative.

Excellent Lawyer
Working with Brian Palacios was one of the best decisions I have made. He was respectful, compassionate and considerate, he listened to all of my concerns. He took the time to explain all pertinent information to me in a way that was easy for me to understand. This was very helpful and greatly eased my own personal fears and concerns. I suffered from a lot of anxiety surrounding my situation and speaking to a lawyer could be stressful and worsen my anxiety. However, Brian made it very easy to talk with him anytime I needed to. He has a very positive and supportive energy that eased a very difficult time for me.

Client
Brian was an excellent attorney. He was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving with no conviction. He walked me step by step throughout the entire Ryder program explaining it and making sure I stayed up to date with all the requirements. This whole process and situation I found myself in was very stressful and overwhelming at first but he made it seem very smooth and easy going. He is very knowledgeable about the law and my rights, his expertise in this particular field was very reassuring which is a huge reason why I chose to hire him as my attorney. He represented me with the upmost professionalism and respect. He is punctual and realistic about what he can and can’t do. I strongly recommend anyone that is looking for law representation to seek Brian Palacios as he holds true to his word and really cares for his clients.
