Lee Viacava - He gets it done.
Plain and simple; Lee Viacava is elite, scrupulous and loyal. His regional and state-wide success renown’s him as *the* premier criminal defense attorney in Florida. Lee uses deep welled experience and qualified resources to tailor your best possible legal strategy. If you want a lawyer that is average, time-lacked and lazy, seek elsewhere. If you prefer detail, tenacity, wins and resolution, Lee Viacava gets it done. *written first hand by a highly satisfied client, May 2021.

Phenomenal attorney who cares about his clients
We called Lee on the day of my daughter’s arrest and we immediately knew he was the man for the job! We had no idea of what to expect and Lee personally guided us through every step. He was able to perform miracles to give my daughter the absolutely best possible outcome and for that we are incredibly grateful. He truly went above and beyond. I would not hesitate to recommend Lee to any who is in need of an excellent lawyer.

The Best!
This was the second time my family and I turned to Attorney Viacava. He is a professional and very caring; he made us feel like family. Any questions we had he and his assistant were only a call away. I loved how fast they returned calls and how he would personally speak to me about any questions and concerns. He kept me updated with any little thing going on my grandpas case. I am so thankful to him for all he did. A lawyer to recommend 100%.

Lee is amazing. Can't recommend him enough.
I cannot recommend Lee any higher. I consulted with multiple firms before I spoke with Lee. With these other firms, it felt like I was just going to be another client in the pipeline and helpless. Lee was the first attorney that I spoke with that actually listened and was confident he could help. Not only did he help but he got everything 100% dismissed. He was confident and knew exactly what he was doing in front of the judge and communicated with me every step of the way. I can't tell you how stressful it has been going through the court system, if it wasn't for Lee I don't know what I would have done. He speaks with you one on one and always returned my calls or emails. I never felt like I wasn't a priority. Can't recommend him enough.
