Not Like Any Other Lawyer: I was sitting outside my courtroom in Kissimmee crying because the deputies would not let me stay inside with my baby. Mr. Gillespie came up to me and asked if I was OK. I told him I was going to jail because I had nobody to watch my baby and I had to plea to my charges, He asked me to give him my paperwork and driver's license and told me to wait while he went inside. He came out in 5 minutes and told me to go home because the state attorney had agreed to drop my charges. He gave me his card and told me to call him if they gave me any trouble. He never asked me for money or even my phone number. He is the most caring and compassionate person I have ever met. It is hard to believe he is a lawyer. And he must be pretty good if he got my case dropped in 5 minutes. Posted on AVVO by Chrissy
I hired John to represent me for my DUI case that I had in Kissimmee. Knowing that I had a number of positive attributes to my case, I knew I stood a chance at beating this DUI in court.
Before I hired John, I had consulted with several other attorneys who simply wanted a plea arrangement with the state, rather than reviewing the facts entirely and fighting for their client. This wasn't the only factor, all of the other attorney's wanted a lot of money to take my case. John worked out a payment arrangement with me that I could afford!
John and I decided to take my case to trial, knowing that a jury needed to hear my case and decide on their own as to what decision to make. When trial day came, John and I were ready to make our case. Before the trial began, John went up and discussed this case with the judge and explained our side of the case.
After their discussion, John came to me in the court room and said, "I need to speak to you outside." We walked out in the hallway, and John told me that the Judge agreed that the state didn't have the evidence for a conviction and dismissed the case.
How freaking cool is that?
If you need a criminal defense attorney, look no further. John is by far one of the best attorney's out there! He will fight for you, he knows the system very well, and he knows his defense! I would hire John again in an instant if I ever need to again.
Don't hesitate. Pick up the phone and call him. He'll listen to your story and give you an honest recommendation!
I called Mr. Gillespie to get some legal advice, because like most people when it come to the courts you need help with all the red tape, etc. Mr. Gillespie walked me through all of the ugly stuff and made sure I understood all aspects of the case. It was like dealing with a family friend.
What a blessing it was dealing with someone with high standards and integrity during a difficult time.
