I am so grateful that I had Mr. Panella defending me. Mr. Panella went above and beyond to help me maintain my innocence. I was wrongfully accused of having falsifying a police report and prostitution. He stood by me, and fought for me all the way until the end. From the first day we worked together he never made me feel anything buy comfortable. I had one person who was on my side; never saying to me like other people: that they thought I was guilty. For that I'm honored to know him and to have had him to fight for me. Thanks to Mr. Panella for doing everything you did for me, and finally in the end getting all the charges against me dismissed.

Kelvin O. Crumby

I was recently arrested on a case dating back more than 12 years ago. I hired an attorney to represent me and was assured that the case was dissolved. After hurricane Irma I came to Florida to work and was pulled over and discovered I had a warrant dating back to 2005. I was held on a no bond hold and extradited to Vero Beach. I hired Mike Panella to represent me and within days I was granted bail and released from jail just days before Christmas. My attorney was on the case like nothing I have ever seen before. He remained in constant contact with me and strategized with me to come up with the best case senerio for my specific charges. His understanding of criminal law is second to no one. He not only gave me real advise and an understanding how serious my charges were and what the outcome could be. He never gave me false hope or over promised on what he could deliver. He is a very serious and motivated attorney with a specific skill set that can win cases and keep your criminal record clean. My outcome was case dismissed. I can’t explain how happy I am and excited to not have those charges staining my future but I truelly feel like every dollar I spent was more than worth it and I hit the five star treatment from a real power attorney. Mike Panella is one of the best lawyers in South Florida and believe me when I say this you need this man to represent you if you want a real fighting chance at dismissing your case or being found not guilty. Even the judge complimented him and his knowledge of the law and judicial system and told him he hopes to see him in his court room again soon!!! Panella Law Firm is definitely going to be a force to be recogned with and Mike will defenitley be winning cases all over south Florida for a very long time.

Panella Law Firm goes above and beyond when it comes to their clients. I have seen first-hand the hard work, dedication, tenacity, and knowledge that comes out of Mike Panella and his firm. Not only does he deliver for his clients, but Mike treats each one of them as his most important priority. The level of care and respect he gives to those he represents is something not typically seen in today’s legal environment. I’ve seen him take the time to listen to his clients without judgement, and defend them in court without reservation. No matter how ‘small’ the charge is, Panella Law Group will fight for you with all available resources (and there are a lot) and with a fervor like none-other. If you or someone you know has a legal issue that needs to be settled, there is no one better than Panella Law Group!
