On September 9 I was pulled over for having dark tints in Port st Lucy. This lead to a search of my car. I was charged with less than 20 grams of marajuana and 6 counts of paraphernalia. I hired the best attorney I found, Mr Kessler, and that's the best decision I could have made. Mr Kessler and his staff were beyond helpful. After Mr Kessler told me all the possible out comes,which none included what happened, I was ready for a stressful year. My first court date was set to November 3rd for an arraignment. On October 19 I got a call from his office....all charges and cases of marajuana possession and possession or paraphernalia were completely dropped and dismissed. I didn't even go to court once. Honestly he's the best lawyer there is. He is very straight up, gives you all the info good or bad and is just beyond great. i don't how how I could ever truly thank him and his staff for being so great.

Miracle Attorney!!!! The biggest weight has been lifted from my shoulder. After being pulled over and found with marijuana possession and 6 counts of paraphynelia possession and given two misdimeanors, I immediately contacted Mr Kessler. I got a one on one consultation with him that helped me understand all my options. After hiring him, in less than a month he was able to get everything dismissed ! I could not believe he was able to do something like this after hearing many different outcomes that did not include dismissal especially in the st.lucie county! Thank you Mr.Kessler and your amazing staff! You guys are AMAZING!

Mike Kessler is a consummate professional. With regard to my particularly difficult DUI case he was diligent, trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He truly went above and beyond and ultimately secured the best possible outcome for me. I feel satisfied knowing that I can hire him in the future for any legal matters and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney on the Treasure Coast.

Mr. Kessler and his law firm has to be one of the most professional yet caring lawyers I have ever met. As soon as I walked into his office and sat with him I knew he was the one to hire. He makes sure you understand the whole process of what you are going through, he also always stays in contact and answers any questions you may have in a timely manner. I hired Kessler and within two weeks my case was dismissed. I would recommend Kessler's law firm to everyone I know who needs some legal help. Thank you again for everything you did to help my family and I through this horrible ordeal.

Although I am not a sworn officer I do work in the field of law enforcement as a civil investigator for the state. I am familiar with the court system and have sat as an expert witness on several occasions. That being said you can imagine my discomfort when I found myself accused (wrongly) of providing alcohol to minors. My career, good name and self respect were all on the line. I met with Mike and his staff through a recommendation from a friend. From the first call with his receptionist I was put at ease and scheduled my initial consultation. I met with Mike approximately one week later. He was attentive and let me pour out my story pretty much without interruption. He then asked me several pertinent questions about things such as searches, location, what the FWC officer said and did, witnesses and so on. The entire time this interview was taking place Mike's demeanor was one of calmness and concern for my situation, especially the fact that I could be terminated if I was found guilty or pled no contest to the allegations. Once the Q&A was complete he reviewed his notes and proceeded to explain exactly how he expected the case to proceed and the outcome he would achieve. He also explained clearly how his services were compensated and what I could expect from he and his staff during the course of the court proceedings up to and including a trial if need be although he seriously doubted it would go that far. He calmed my concerns by detailing exactly how he planned on proving my innocence. As time went by and I received notices from the court regarding appearances I would immediately receive a letter from his office stating what if any action I needed to take. Not once did I have to call his office to ask ow I should proceed. A few days before my court date Mike and I had a twenty or thirty minute phone conversation about where we stood (young ASA was playing chicken with no evidence) and what I should expect. He also advised me on when I should arrive at court and how to dress. These things I already knew from my own career experience but I appreciated the care he took to make sure everything would go smoothly. On the morning of my court date I was sitting outside the courtroom when Mike showed up. He made eye contact but did not come over at that point. He was obviously busy communicating with the ASA and representing my case to the state. After thirty minutes or so he came out of the court room and came and stood next to me. I asked him "how are we doing" and that is when he told me the ASA was playing chicken when they had no evidence. He also told me that they were trying to charge me with a statute that did not apply to my case. He said was giving the ASA a chance to digest that fact on top of the lack of evidence as he had just informed him of it. We chatted about family and kids and then a few minutes later he said "I will be right back". He left, came back and casually said "you can leave if you want, I have to stay until the ASA informs the judge that the State is choosing Nolle Prosse". I said "that's it?" and he said yes, unless you want to stay and hear it for yourself. I thought about it and said "you know, after all the stress, I want to hear it." He just grinned and told me what would happen from there on. After the case was dismissed we walked out together and I thanked him sincerely for all his work and his obvious concern for my case. He said he was just sorry I had to go through all the stress in order to prove something we already knew to be true, my innocence. Not only is Mike Kessler and his staff a top notch law firm, every person I dealt with, from the receptionist to his associate attorneys to Mike himself conducted themselves in a very professional manner demonstrating both exceptional legal knowledge and compassion for my situation. I will say it again, Thanks Mike, to you and your staff for making a bad situation much, much easier than it could have been!

When I was referred to Mr. Kessler, and after researching him, I thought to myself, he only does high profile murder cases, so I'm sure I will not be a priority to him with a domestic violence case. My family was being torn apart and I felt hopeless. I was wrong. I had movement on my case within the next day, and the case was resolved in less than two weeks. I am so glad I gave it a chance. He was referred with glowing remarks by another attorney and I am completely satisfied. I was so overwhelmed and thought he was too calm...but his calmness balanced with my fears and high emotions was a winning combination. I cannot thank him enough. Again, completely satisfied!

Thanks to Mr. Kessler my case was dismissed without going to trial as a result of his expertise and efficiency. Throughout the whole process Mr. Kessler and his stuff were the most helpful and made the whole process smooth and easy. I would definitely recommend this great professional to any of my friends. Respectfully, Yury K.

My elderly father was fined two times in one month for catching a fish that was over the limit. He had already paid a $500 fine and was fined again and facing a fine or even jail time. A good friend suggested I contact Mr. Kessler's office. He said it was the lawyer he'd hire if he or his family were in trouble. His staff person Daisy Ruiz was incredible. She put the matter before Mr. Kessler immediately. He showed up and represented my father. The resolution was very favorable under the circumstances. The fee was modest given my parents' lack of resources. And I very much appreciated it. I am a law professor and was impressed by the time, attention and empathy he showed in dealing with an unsophisticated and vulnerable client. Many Many thanks.
