I have known Brett for over 7 hears. In addition to being a valuable contributor to society here in Sarasota, he has helped me personally (with a DUI) and more recently helped my son with legal challenges. Brett was able combine my son's charges and their restitution in a manageable way. He was able to prevent irreparable harm to his future. During two very stressful periods of our lives, he and his staff were courteous and always got back with us. Their help was invaluable.

Bret is the best attorney for criminal defense in manatee and sarasota counties. I was wrongfully accused and Bret took the challenge to go up against a police dept.
Bret was more than fair when it came to price.
Bret treated me like a friend, he took his time learning about the case from both sides. He also seemed to enjoy going to trial and standing up for what was right and THAT is why he is the best. He's passionate about righting the wrong.
Not matter how big or small your case is, Mr. Mcintosh will approched it with confidence and certain type of "swag" that everyone in the room respects.

Brett came highly recommended to me by several other lawyers whom I hold in high regard. Brett was more than fair in his fees and he even charged me significantly less than the price we agreed on. He leveled with me on exactly what to expect each step of the way and never gave me false hope. Brett countered negotiations with the state to make a deal but I ultimately didn't feel comfortable accepting and Brett supported my decision. He told me what to expect if we went to trial and what the repercussions could be if things didn't go my way. I was terrified but continually reassured by those I know in the business that I had the right guy in my corner. I was also nervous at the notion of testifying but Brett gave me confidence to do so.
On the day of trial Brett picked up on even the subtlest of inconsistencies and mounted an excellent defense on my behalf. Even up until the end of the trial, it seemed as if the verdict could go either way, but Brett's closing statements to the jury were incredibly compelling and ultimately landed a not guilty verdict.
Brett isn't only a damn good lawyer, he's a damn good man and I am forever grateful for his services

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Mr. McIntosh is one of the finest criminal defense attorneys I came across during my career at the State Attorney's Office. He was opposing counsel on many of my cases, exhibiting great skills as a trial attorney. He was knowledgeable, professional, and a zealous advocate for his clients. He is well-respected by Judges and attorneys for his well-developed and well-reasoned motions and arguments.
