After paying a large amount for DUI representation, I would think someone would receive expectation service. Unfortunately it was quite the opposite and when he was coming up short with a defensive and insisted on me pleading out, I chose to retain a new attorney and all charges were dropped! I would not recommend this firm, over priced with bad customer service. The attorney I hired was half the price and always personally called me when I requested a meeting. Save the money

If my life depended on legal representation I would hire Attorney Richard Escobar. Over the last 10 years I have hired many attorneys to represent my son and his ongoing legal problems. I can honestly say that Attorney Escobar was the first and only attorney that was prepared in court after examining all aspects of the case and probable outcomes. He saved my son from possible years of imprisonment and recognized the good in him. Of all the attorneys in the Tampa area that I hired over the last many years
Attorney Rick Escobar is in my opinion the only attorney to hire and I wish I had found him sooner.

I cant thank god enough for letting me come across Mr.Escobar and his team because after the hard search which includes me hiring a attorney who not only did he not do anything for my husband not even go to meet his client while he was in jail which is the reasonable thing to do but also ripped me off when i told him we no longer wanted his services. which is when i went for a consultation With Mr. Escobar in which without yet hiring him Mr.Escobar told me he would go to the jail to talk with my husband who was scared and confused being that he doesn't speak English which then lead my family and i into hiring Mr.Escobar for my husbands hard " manslaughter" Case. And i am so glad we did because he accomplished from getting him out on bond to proving his innocence and thanks to Mr. Escobar and his Team and Staff who are so professional my husband is again a FREE MAN.

I endorse this lawyer. Rick is an outstanding lawyer. I practiced against him when I was a prosecutor and with him as a criminal defense attorney. He is a fabulous and passionate advocate for his clients and always does an excellent job representing them.
