"Mr. Sandefer has been an amazing lawyer. He was easily able to work with me on a Florida case even though I am in a different state. He was easily accessible via e-mail and phone, he always made sure to keep me updated on the progress of my case. I would recommend Mr. Sandefer to anyone who is looking for an honest, hard-working, lawyer on their side. He went above and beyond his duties to make sure all of the loose ends of my situation were tied up. I could not be more thankful for the help he has provided me. I hopefully will not need his services in the future, but if I do, I will be sure to return to this law firm.”
“I have retained Larry Sandefer multiple times and on each occasion have been very pleased with the outcome. Larry is very knowledgeable and knows most the prosecutors and Judges, making the process go smoother. While I regret having to go through the legal system, I feel the outcome could/would have been much worse for me if not for Larry Sandefer. I have also referred more than 10 other clients to Larry who were very happy with his services. After being through the system multiple times and seeing and hearing what I have, I would definitely give Larry Sandefer my highest recommendation!”
“I hired Larry Sandefer for a felony DUI and felony driving while license suspended. He subpoenaed both officers for depositions and the truth came out. Larry took my calls and worked together to get these charges dropped. They were dropped – in fact the prosecutor walked into the hearing and said we are not pursuing this case any longer. If it were not for Larry and his expertise, I believe that I would’ve been convicted and jailed for a crime that did not commit. The other case was felony domestic battery. The allegations were untrue and Larry did it again. I did not step foot in a courtroom. Larry took the bull by the horns and convinced the prosecutor not to file the charges based upon the true facts of the situation. With this case I was facing at least five years in prison. Again, without Larry I believe that I would be sitting in prison right now. If ever I or anyone I know find themselves in legal trouble, the first thing to come out of my mouth will be to call Larry Sandefer.”
“Larry single-handedly got me the best possible outcome regarding a very serious legal situation (drug trafficking with a 15 year minimum mandatory sentence). If there were not for his experience and reputable name, my life would’ve taken a total turn for the worst. When it is your entire future on the line, there is no question that he is the man for the job. I would recommend his services to anyone.”
