Client Reviews

"Nick was more then helpful with my trafficking case. On top of his reasonable payment plan, He and his secretary were always on time and responsive. He was not quick to jump the gun, and after taking our time to receive the best outcome, I received a deal that I was comfortable with, and he is helping me to early terminate as well. I highly recommend him for representation."

"Dear Mr. Dorsten, I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my case. It was quite a long and upsetting process and I could never thought anyone would stay by my side for this long but you were very generous regarding it. It is really hard to make someone who doesn’t know you believe that you are innocent but you still put all your efforts in clearing my name.I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and restored everything out for me. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solves my worries. Thank you."

"If you're looking for an Attorney who truly has your back, you have found what you're looking for. I have Rex Blake as my Attorney. He has had my best interest in mind the entire time and has gone to bat for me relentlessly with the Prosecutor and Judge. Even when I had an active warrant, I didn't spend one minute in jail. He filed a motion to surrender, I came to court and he went to bat for me and I walked out of the courtroom that day. So if you want a Lawyer who will defend you with professionalism and grit, you've found the right Attorney. I recommend Rex to anyone who has the unfortunate reality of being charged with a crime."

"My name is Pedro and i recently retained rex as my lawyer in what was now my 3rd dui case. He was honest and did not sugarcoat my situation. He told me it was a tough case from the beginning, especially in pinellas county, but he assured me that he would fight and get the best deal for me. This was my 3rd DUI, marijuana(4 grams),Refusal to submit. Dmv automatically takes your license for a year if u refuse but Since it was my 2nd refusal they automatically take it away for 18 months. However, rex went to the dmv hearing and miraculously won it so they issued my license right back. This was the moment i knew rex was fighting for me and i was in good hands. I didnt even know there was a possibilty to get your license back once you refuse a breathalizer. The dmv and court are seperate so there was still the matter of DUI charge, possession of marijuana( 4grams), and refusal to submit (2nd refusal is considered a misdemeanor). The prosecutor wanted nothing less than jail time, 90 days to be exact. Furthermore she also wanted probation, community service, dui school and everything else that comes along with a dui charge. Rex negotiated a deal in which i would get the bare minimum that comes along with 2nd dui. No jail, got my marijuana charge and refusal to submit down to a fine, saved me 1000 bucks because he ran those fines concurrent with dui fine. 1 year misdemeanor probation with early term after 6 months, 50 hrs community service which i could work to pay my fines. Alcohol ankle monitor for 30 days. Sorry for the long review but i feel like there is so much more i want to say. Ill leave you with this short story. On my court date im standing up by the podium as the state prosecutor and my lawyer are going over the terms of my plea with the judge. Finally its coming to an end when the prosecutor says " the defendant aill also serve 60 days in jail." My lawyer quickly said, " your honor that was not part of the deal and my defendant will not accept jail time." The prosecutor then lowers it to 30 days jail and my lawyer once again says that its not acceptable. They hudled around and the prosecutor says, " im giving you a one time, one day deal and it expires the minute you walk out of this courtroom." Ankle monitor for 30 days!! The moral of that story is that he fights for you and since most of the time clients dont get to see those tough negotiations with prosecutors behind closed doors, i witnessed his commitment and willingness to fight first hand. I would recommend rex to anyone seeking strong legal representation. Im not really a "write a review" type of guy nor did i look at lawyers as the most honest people but my experience with rex showed me a different perspective. Still not big fan of writing reviews. Big thanks to rex and crew!"

"Nick Dorsten is by far one of the best lawyers I have ever worked with. He was very attentive and very professional. He does whatever it takes to win cases. I have been using this law firm for quite a few years now and have always recommend and will continue to recommend using them to all of my friends and family. This law firm has been around for a very long time and even if they dont know or have any answers for you, they do what they can to get the answers you need or guide you in the right direction. Keep up the great work Nick and Blake!! You guys are awesome!"

"Rex is a great attorney and took care of all of my legal issues. I got in trouble while on vacation in Florida, living in Michigan I was very stressed out about having to fly back for court dates. Rex took care of all the court dates and did everything he promised. I highly recommend him to represent you!"

"Nicholas Dorsten's representation was by far the best decision I've ever made, as he is the hardest working man in the business. I was on a sinking ship in my orange jumpsuit with a pissed off Judge, then I called Nick. He's exactly like the lawyers you see in the movies. Thank you!!"
