Great Attorney!
I worked with Mr Patel on three occasions thus far and have came out successful. He keeps you up to date with what’s current in your case so you always know what’s going on. A very smooth journey working with Mr Patel and I highly reccommend him as an attorney.

Great service!
Bhavik is a great lawyer to have he got all of my charges dropped for me and I had some pretty serious charges (4 felonies and on misdemeanor). He stay in contact with me through the whole thing and kept me updated on exactly what was going on. I am very appreciative of all of his hard work! I would definitely recommend this lawyer to anyone in need.

Represented myself for a DUI
Mr. Patel was very helpful at explaining what was going to happened from the beginning he was hired. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs a DUI and DWI defender.

A hero. My hero!
I contacted a seperate lawfirm, and seeing as I am in Tampa I was refured to Mr.Patels office. He reached out immediately. It was a simple case but it could effect my family in a big way. We haven't got very much right now and after long deliberation my husband and I realized we wouldn't be able to afford a lawyers assistance. Mr.Patel took it uppon himslef, after we stated we wouldn't beable to affords the help, to take care of my issue. Hope is a hard feeling to find in the world right now. Mr.Patel has giving me hope. He has shown that it isn't about money for him, but about helping. If I had the money I would give it to him in an instant. This man has shown what it really means to be a lawyer and have true humanity. Thank you from the top to bottom of my heart. May he be blessed by the best.

Attorney Patel - Best Criminal deffense Lawyer in FL.
I was referred to Attorney Bhavik by Attorney Cohen. Hiring Attorney Patel’s services was without a doubt the best decision made for my Husbands case. His knowledge of the law and his professional work ethics went way beyond my expectation. He was always very patient with all of my endless questions and concerns, and he never made me feel uncomfortable about asking “too much”. Responses were always received via email or phone call in a timely matter. If you are looking for a professional, efficient, personable and knowledgeable criminal defense Attorney, look no further... Attorney Patel is the lawyer you need!

Professional and quick!
Bhavik helped me when I found out about my court date only due to a background check when I got a new job. I had a week to get my things together and he helped me feel secure. Court was a breeze with him and I got my license back and more. Professional, courteous and a skilled attorney. Highly recommended.

Very good job
Patel was able to do a miracle that other lawyers couldn’t do. He was able to drop most of my charges and prevent me from going to prison. Was able to argue for me and get me a great deal within a short time period.

Worth every penny
Mr patel worked with me being that at the time everybill I have ever had was hitting me all at once. I wasn’t sure if I could retain this guy, every word he spoke was exactly what I wanted in this case, and I just knew I need him. Within one phone call Mr. Patel handled all of my financial concerns. I feel sorry for all those people in the lobby waiting for a public defender they seemed screwed, even some of the lawyers seemed scatter brained and not on top of things while speaking to the judge. Not the case with my lawer he’s very fluid and professional. Patel and I were in and out of that court room faster than a trip to target. We got the best deal I can get. I do have to quit drinking for 90 days small price better than sitting in jail. Furthermore I will have no record.

Great lawyer!!
Hiring Mr. Patel was the greatest decision I’ve made for my case. He was beyond professional and very understanding. His knowledge of the law and diligence kept me from being convicted of a very unfair arrest. He kept me informed through out the entire process and his response time was quicker than I could have asked for. I will definitely consider hiring him again if ever needed.

Excellent!!!
Meeting Mr. Bhavik Patel was a great experience, his demeanor and knowledge of the law and his professional work ethics went way beyond may expectation. I hired Mr. Patel to help me with an issue I had, in which a battery charge was dropped completely and hit with a small fine. I would highly recommend Mr. Bhavik Patel with no concerns at all!!! I trusted him as if he were part of my family. My Family and I could not thank him enough for all he did.

Polk County Case
From the start Bhavik Patel was attentive and showed he cared about the case. A family relative was pulled over for not having a valid drivers license in Polk County. We found Bhavik by reaching out to Corey Cohen an attorney that works along with him on some cases after finding him online. Bhavik took the time to call us and explain the process since the beginning. We met at his office and he made us feel comfortable discussing the case and asking all the questions. After we decided to hire him he kept in constant communication through email and phone call answering any questions we had in the process. He usually answered within a few hours. Not sure, how many cases he was handling at the time but it he made us feel as a priority. He walked us through the whole process and promised the best possible outcome, a fine only. After having court and settling the case he walked us over to pay the fine. He never made us feel uncomfortable for asking questions. He showed that he cared and never was about just charging his fee. I will always recommend him. He did an excellent job.

Traffic Citations and more
We all get our traffic citations. I have had a few more than I wanted and thanks to Mr. Patel I was able to have them dropped so I wouldn't receive any points on my records. I know I could spend the time taking classes, but they have a limit and I definitely don't want my insurance to go up for the next few years.

Amazing!
Bhavik is very professional. Every time I called him he answers with a smile. His advice is sound and it's always right. He told me honestly and respectfully the truth, even though it may not have been what I wanted to hear. In my opinion, that's what I want a lawyer to do - tell me the truth and fight for me. My advice is to hire him!

Highly Recommended
I was referred to Bhavik from a personal friend who spoke very highly of him. After my initial discussion with Bhavik it was clear he was the obvious choice. I extremely impressed with his conversational style, knowledge and professionalism. Of course that only goes so far, but he delivered. He completed the service in an expeditious manner that even exceeded my expectations. Thank you again sir for taking a lot of stress off my plate.
