Speeding Ticket
~Speeding Ticket Client

"In my former career I drove a company car and did not want a ticket on my company insurance. I had taken an online course within that calendar year to avoid a previous ticket. The law states you may take 5 courses in a lifetime and only 1 per calendar year. Kevin was able to effectively argue my case and the judge agreed to a 12 hour course in lieu of the ticket. Kevin is excellent at communicating with his clients and I would highly recommend him for any legal matter you may have."

Awesome Job!
~Tony, Divorce Client

"Retained Mr. Piccarreto to handle my divorce after my original attorney dropped the ball. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have went to his office first. Being an active duty military member stationed outside of Florida, we had a lengthy initial phone consultation (which when I called...he personally answered the phone when the receptionist was at lunch). Mr. Piccarreto took extra time to listen to my situation and to explain to me what his game plan would be if I retained him. He was professional, honest, and genuinely friendly. Unlike the first lawyer, all my phone calls and emails (which were numerous) were returned almost immediately. Things I did not understand were patiently explained to me, and everything was treated with priority to resolve my case. Documents were delivered quickly and right on time, every time. I highly recommend Kevin Piccarreto and the folks at Tinny, Meyer, and Piccarreto."

Professional, Knowledgeable, Dependable
~DUI Client

"I had the unfortunate experience of needing to hire a criminal attorney, but the fortunate experience of having Kevin Piccarreto as my lawyer to guide me through a trying DUI case. After meeting with a few disreputable lawyers, Kevin was recommended to me and after the first couple of minutes during our initial meeting I immediately felt comfortable, confident and relieved that I found an attorney that would represent me with the capabilities that I was looking for. Having dealt with a few lawyers in the past, in my opinion, one of the most important attributes to look for is accessibility. If Kevin was available he would take my call, if he wasn't I knew that I would receive a return call in a timely matter. Kevin would also schedule meetings with me whenever necessary and always kept me informed of when I needed to attend court dates and always advised me on any updates in my case. Kevin made a seemingly regrettable process very tolerable and had an incredible knowledge of the state laws, statutes and case law. Kevin was able to get my case resolved quickly, painlessly and most importantly, favorably. Kevin has a wide variety of expertise in the law arena and I would highly recommend him for your legal needs."

~Alicia, Speeding Ticket Client

"I would absolutely recommend Kevin as an attorney. He took my information, advised me of my options and kept me informed. He resolved my case and at all times I felt I had answers. Even working with his staff."

Client Review
~ Divorce Client

"I am so grateful that my friend had suggested that I consult with Mr. Piccarreto for my divorce and child custody case. After consulting with different attorneys, I decided to hire him and his firm for my divorce and never regretted my decision. He and his firm were extremely helpful and were able to protect me and my children from my abusive husband. Mr. Piccarreto was compassionate and treated me with respect during this difficult time in my life. His firm was dedicated to my case and I was very satisfied with the ultimate results of my case. His experience and skill were very effective in securing custody of my children. I appreciate the time devoted to my case and his ability. I would highly recommend Mr. Piccarreto to other individuals."

Client Review
~Divorce Client

"Kevin was able to resolve my legal problems quickly and professionally. He was always responsive and kept me informed of the proceedings. When I did not have understanding to the legal system or questions about my case, he took the time to fully answer my questions and made sure I understood. He and his staff were very professional and I was completely satisfied with his representation. I have referred friends and family to him since that time."

Client Review
~Former Client

"Mr. Piccarreto handled my case very professionally and effectively. The issues of my case were very technical and complicated. He and his office responded quickly and aggressively. I am very satisfied with the results that were achieved. Kevin was very responsive to me and returned my calls timely. He and his staff kept me informed and answered my questions thoroughly. I would definitely refer Mr. Piccarreto to my friends, family, and coworkers. I have worked with several attorneys in the past and will go to Mr. Piccarreto and his office if I need future legal assistance. He was there every step of the way and I could not have done it without him."
