“I will always remember this and his professionalism”

Dean Leboeuf represented me a long time ago and consulted that I only needed a public defender. He took the time to come to the court room and let the judge know that I was seeking other counsel. He did not charge me for this. I will always remember this and D. Wu

“I appreciated his honesty”

I spoke with over a dozen criminal defense attorneys before selecting John Leace. From our first meeting, I knew that he was the right one for my loved one’s case. He was straightforward and let me know that the case was going to be an uphill battle. I appreciated his honesty. Before hiring John Leace the public defender told my loved one that it would be in his best interest if he accepted a 30-year plea. We braced for what that would mean for his future and decided to look at alternative options.
John was able to reduce his time by 20 years essentially giving him a life and a future that we never dreamt would be possible. I will never be able to express how grateful I am for John’s hard work and dedication. From day one John answered all of my questions and helped guide us through the process. He even took time during his family vacation to give me a quick call and discuss some of my concerns. If you are looking for an honest, hardworking and dedicated attorney I would highly recommend.

“John was a huge help to me”

John was a huge help to me. Not only did he guide me through the legal process but he was a calming voice of reason. Having been blindsided by something, I had no answers but after sitting with John and his team, I instantly had some. John immediately went to work for me by contacting the authorities and getting to the bottom of it. John also stayed in touch through the entire process and always took my calls.. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for John’s expertise, professionalism and efforts!
John was able to help us with every part of our case. We had never had any dealing with the court system and we were nervous and overwhelmed with what to do. When we met with him he made us feel at ease and helped us with our fears. He told us what we needed to do to get the ball rolling. John and his office group kept us informed as the case played out. When the court date came John was able to help us to obtain a lesser charge which were very much appreciated. John is an excellent example of how I think a lawyer and person should be in helping people in need.

“John stood by me through a 1 1/2 year criminal court case”

John stood by me through a 1 1/2 year criminal court case. He was honest, communicative and a pleasure to have as my attorney. He had the experience and knowledge to know how to proceed with my case and, more importantly, how to deal with the DA in my case. The outcome of my case ended up being far better than I expected. Not only was he my attorney, but he treated me like a friend and provided me with other resources throughout my case, to assist with other personal problems that arose during the case. I highly recommend John as an attorney in any case you might have. He is top notch and will give you the best outcome for your current situation.

“Mr Leace did a fantastic job both times”

Never put yourself in a situation where you need to deal with law enforcement. However, should events put yourself in this predicament, i.e. an altercation in a public place, always hire an attorney who will be a wolverine but who also knows how to plea bargain with the district attorney. John Lease is such an attorney. Although the consequences of my case are not yet completed, I feel that he is very capable. Henceforth, I hope to deal with him on a non-professional basis.
Mr Leace did a fantastic job both times I’ve used him in the past. He was very reasonable, helpful and understanding. Probably the best characteristic was that he didn’t sugar coat reality and told me what I was dealing with.
words cannot express how i feel about this lawyer he is excellent everything about john leace.

“Best Lawyer in Tallahassee for Criminal Defense & FSU Hearings!”

The right “pitbull” when you need a great defense attorney. Matt is very professional and think outside the box. He knows when to put pressure on the other parties and when to back off. He is the right “pitbull” to get when you are defending yourself. I highly recommend him!
Best Lawyer in Tallahassee for Criminal Defense & FSU Hearings! If you are charged with a crime or accused of violating FSU’s Student Conduct Code, you NEED to hire Matt Foster! I was falsely accused of a serious violation of FSU’s Student Conduct Code and Matt represented me at the FSU Hearing. The stakes were very high as I faced expulsion from the university. Matt made sure FSU respected my legal rights, and as a result of my hearing, I was found not guilty! Matt is extremely ethical and truly cares about his clients. His expertise and knowledge of the law are top-notch. His firm’s billing practices are very fair. While hiring a lawyer is always expensive, I promise you won’t be sorry if you hire Matt Foster. He gave me my money’s worth… and then some!
Matt represented me in a FSU hearing, an injunction, and a criminal case. The case should have never been charged in the first place, but my first attorney dropped the ball. He fixed (as much as he could) the mess my old attorney left me with. He was quick in answering my questions, ethical in his actions, and fair in his billing. Hiring an attorney is never a fun process, but he walked me through the process, provided a fair assessment of the situation, and did what needed to be done. I wish I had hired Matt in the first place instead of someone else who messed up the case. If you need a solid, ethical, and smart attorney, hire

Matt Foster.

“I do know that I won’t have to struggle financially and for that I will always be grateful”

I do know that I won’t have to struggle financially and for that I will always be grateful to you and your hard work. You listened to me as I outlined what my parameters were and then you went about obtaining the very best outcome for me within those guidelines. I am grateful that you have made it possible for me to enjoy the remainder of my life with my family and friends.

Mr. Scott has been amazing in this difficult time of my life. I thought that my case would take a lot longer than it did. He was very informative and walk me through the whole process step by step. The office took care of everything. My tragedy happened over the Christmas holidays and he took time on his vacation to give me a call and discuss my case. Many thanks to all of you there that to the time out to listen as I express my feelings.

“They made us feel like family, like our best interest was their motivation”

They made us feel like family, like our best interest was their motivation, not just a paycheck to them. It was a very stressful time for us and they really helped by making our experience with them easy and as stress free as it could be and closed things in a very timely fashion. Thank you all very much!

“He was good as to keeping us informed”

I hired Mr. Leace to represent my son in 3 Felony case in Gadsden and Leon County (a case of mistaken identity). He was good as to keeping us informed as the status and the progression of my son’s cases. Very professional and thorough with his investigation and explanations. I am so happy that my son’s cases were DISMISSED! THANKS AGAIN MR. LEACE!!!!
I retained Mr. Leace to handle a very delicate personal issue that went to trial. He was very compassionate in his dealings with my family outside the courtroom and extremely professional once inside the courtroom. Would HIGHLY recommend him and continue to use his services today.

“John represented me as professionally and advantageously as possible”

John represented me as professionally and advantageously as possible, I have the utmost confidence that he did the best thing possible for me at all stages given the environment he operated in. If a serious need arose he would be the first person I would speak to and think of, even with having relocated 500 miles away, I wouldn’t hesitate a moment to recommend him; the largest regret I have in the way I handled the case John represented me in was not retaining him to represent me in the portion that was heard in South Florida, instead opting for local counsel, who left me well aware of the difference between his and Johns quality of work. I have since had much to do with many non criminal attorneys, he has stood out as a man of his word, one who set the expectations just below what he delivered 100% of the time, a straightshooter. In my eyes his professionalism and demeanor not only benefited the ultimate outcome of my case but as a young man, it truly aided in my ability to cope with accusations and consequences I never thought I’d face. I don’t know what I would have done without his involvement, he always told the bad news first, was straightforward about it, and would follow it up with what he knew he could deliver to improve the situation, he always delivered if he said he would. I cannot thank him enough for his help during a bizarre time in my life.

“John Leace is a phenomenal lawyer”

John Leace is a phenomenal lawyer. I went to him almost in tears over a criminal charge that consisted of two felonies I was being charged with, and had very little money. Mr. Leace completely put me at ease, and worked with me on price and payments. He was extreamly informative, confident, and very professional, and I never had to attend one court hearing. After several month of deliberating on my account, Mr. Leace got all of my charges thrown out of court. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, and would be happy to use him again if needed.
Knowledgeable and experienced attorney who takes the time to answer all your questions, with the upmost respect and integrity, continuously keeping you up-to-date with your case, and is truly dedicated to you. A great professional to have in your corner.
Very patient in helping me understand the court process, and made sure to keep me informed on the progress of my case.
Ryan did an excellent job for us . A large insurance company (confidentiality clause in settlement) did not to pay our claim after a fire , offered us nothing and then $5,000.00 at mediation and then a month Ryan achieved policy limits (six figures , again confidentiality clause) for us.

“When there was “too much at stake” Mr. LeBoeuf was certainly there for me”

When there was “too much at stake” Mr. LeBoeuf was certainly there for me. He is empathetic, competent, insightful, wise, and for me literally “a lawyer’s lawyer”. His guidance, analysis, personal support, practice and professionalism are best-in-category. I will be forever grateful for his objective and always-courteous service to me as his client. His comprehensive vision of the entire matter, as well as his honorable advice and presentations, were instrumental in the circumstances and in clarifying the resolution of the matter. One could not ask for more or better legal services. He is a consummate and reliable professional, and a genuinely good person, who understands and accomplishes fairness.
