Great Attorney and Person!
Our family is most grateful for Mr. Steven Tinsley. My son had a serious legal problem and Attorney Tinsley served as co-counsel for his defense. He provided excellent legal defense with a very favorable outcome. He sincerely cares for his clients and he goes beyond the call of duty to help them. We highly recommend Mr. Tinsley and he is truly a top-notch attorney. We are extremely thankful for him.

Best Choice
My husband was faced with a felony Aggravated Battery w a Deadly Weapon and the State included some misdemeanors to strengthen their case. He was facing prison, or at the least, years of felony probation offered by the State. This was a life-changing event. From our first conversation, I decided to hire Mr. Tinsley. That proved to be the best decision we made. It was a scary journey, and his defense team was always available to answer calls, texts, and questions. We were never in the dark about our case or what was going on. The Defense Team's assistant, Janette, was wonderful, professional and always made me feel like we were VIP clients, but I know she makes that time for all clients. Mr Tinsley aggressively defended my husband every step of the way. He knew exactly how to take apart the States case, and eventually, got all charges dismissed. We will be forever grateful. If you're reading this, you're debating on hiring this Defense Team, don't hesitate, it will be the best decision you make.

An Attorney who will fight for you
We hired Mr. Tinsley to represent my husband on a DUI conviction. Though we had several lawyer consultations, Mr. Tinsley's expertise and honesty made our decision to hire him an easy one. He met with my husband first and since I wasn't able to be present, he spoke with me on the phone and answered all my questions. After arraignment and pre-trials, we ended up having to take the case to trial. After seeing the jury selection, Mr. Tinsley was not confident that we would get a favorable outcome and he was honest about that. We decided to go forward with the trial and he did an amazing job from start to finish. He was able to prove my husband's innocence and the jury delivered a not guilty verdict and my husband's DUI charge was acquitted. Had he been convicted, he was facing jail time, something we could not fathom. Mr. Tinsley went to bat for us and we are forever thankful for his help. He put on a strong case and we received the outcome we were praying for. His secretary is an amazing part of his team. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgable. Mr. Tinsley is affordable and his schedule is very accomadating. He met with us twice on a Sunday due to my husband's work schedule. I'm thankful for this team and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a lawyer who will fight the good fight for you.

My son was accused of double DUI/manslaughter. He was looking at the rest of his life in prison. Steven Tinsley proved that he was fully innocent. It took 3+ years, 90 jurors and 5 days in trial, but he prevailed. Steven Tinsley saved my son's life, and I am so grateful to him and his staff!!!

Awesome attorney and secretary
I dealt with attorney Tinsley because I got into an incident in Florida back in April. Mr. Tinsley is a great attorney, he kept the lines of communication open and his secretary is awesome as well. If I ever have an issue in the state of Florida I will contact mr. Tinsley office. He was affordable, knowledgeable. Friendly and very understanding. I had 2 consults with mr Tinsley and both times he informed me of what could happen and did not hide anything from me and because of all this I truly appreciate him and his staff. The better news is the day after hiring Mr. Tinsley my charge was dropped and all I could do was say thank you Lord.

Great Lawyer
I couldn't be more thankful to Mr. Tinsley. He was truly amazing during my experience with him. He went to my arraignment and trial in to represent me without me being present. The ist day of trial, not even 60 seconds after it started he had my case dropped. This was truly a blessing and im grateful for Mr. Tinsley's. He has great communication skills and customer service. Not to mention he is affordable and is understanding. I will always recommend Mr. Tinsley to anyone who needs him.

Best Attorney You Can Get!
Mr. Tinsley helped my daughter who was arrested while we were on vacation in Florida. He met with us and gave us great advice. He also referred us to a bail bonds who helped us when no one else would because we were visitors and did not live in the state! He does what he says he will and I could tell that he really cared about his clients!
