Don’t wait! If you are going to spend the money to hire the best lawyer you can on your criminal case don’t you want them to be working on your case from the beginning? In Southwest Florida when you are accused of misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on your specific circumstance, your first court date can be first appearance where Mr. Viacava will argue for you to be released from jail on bond with the least amount of restrictions to your freedom. First appearance is normally conducted within twenty-four hours of your arrest if you are not awarded bond. Next, your arraignment will be held approximately one month after your arrest. Your arraignment is the court date where the prosecution announces to the court what charges they are formally going to file against you. The sooner you hire Lee Viacava he will contact law enforcement or the prosecutor to try get your charges dismissed or reduced. This is important because it can be more difficult to get positive movement on your charges following formal filing by the prosecutor.

I love this law firm. Mr. Viacava and his team are professional, responsive, and have the drive to help you in every way they can. Lee works over time and on weekends making sure you get the best possible outcome. His dedication and love for what he does makes him successful, helping people in their worst times. He helped keep me calm and assured that everything is going to work out, and I called a lot! If I had to use anyone again, ( hopefully not!) I’d hire him again, immediately! Shout out to Tiphanie, she is a sweet heart; I appreciate her work ethic and compassion! THANK YOU

Personal injury client

Amazing representation. Lee was extremely professional and treats you like family. He had my case dropped even before my first court date. He told me at our initial consultation that he would work not stop to have my charges dropped and obviously from the outcome he’s a man of his word. I highly recommend this firm to anyone with any criminal case against them. They honestly treat you like you’re their only client when in fact they are a busy firm.

Criminal Defense Client

Attorney Lee Viacava is a top class attorney. He recently represented me in a Workers Comp case and I cannot adequately relay the high quality of his representation. Lee does not back down under any situation. He kept me informed every step of the way and made certain that all of my medical needs were addressed. I give Lee 5 stars and would rate higher if possible.

Worker’s Compensation Client

Lee was able to pull off a miracle for my son who was arrested in Fort Myers. He was facing 5-15 years but was able to get no jail time and probation. Always took the time to talk, never rushed me always kept me in the loop returned all calls. Lee is very skilled at what he does. The girls in the office were amazing as well. Lee saved my sons life!!! I cannot express to anyone how amazing Lee is, he is a real life miracle worker!
