Attorney Uhrig is both experienced and skilled at what he does. Most importantly, he cares for his clients. We have referred many clients to him and he always obtains good results. I had the opportunity to work alongside Mr. Uhrig in one case and saw firsthand his confidence and skill in the courtroom. I highly recommend his firm.

Great Lawyer! Very experienced and reasonably priced.

When you have the need to hire a defense attorney, you want the best there is. My family and I have worked with Peter Zies on multiple occasions and have found him to be just what we needed. He knows how to pull the information out of you that he needs in a non-intrusive manner. He works on the case without the need to call him and remind him on a daily basis. Two out of the three times we used Mr. Zies our cases were settled out of court. Thank you Mr. Zies and the Defense Group.

It is with great pleasure and pride that I write this review for The Defense Group. I have known Hal Uhrig and the lawyers at The Defense Group for decades (telling my age) and have always found them to be both professional and personable. The combined experience they have in the legal industry is unmatched. I am a bail agent and have managed one of the largest agencies in the State of Florida. In my business, I have had to call on The Defense Group many many times for legal counsel and representation and have always been impressed with the care, attention and expertise of Mr. Uhrig , his colleagues and staff. I rely regularly on The Defense Group both personally and professionally and would not hesitate to recommend them
For any legal matter.

I just want to say thank you to Hal Uhrig for getting my case dropped in 44 days. I was confident from the beginning because I know Hal's background, but I was very impressed with the speed this happened. He did give me homework, so for those of you who don't like responsibility, maybe you should just plead guilty. But if you're willing to do what Hal asks, (in my case get a couple of people to sign affidavits) there's a really good chance you'll have a positive outcome quickly.

For those of you reading other reviews that bash this firm, let me tell you something... Hal was available 24/7 for me. Priscilla is a professional, and conducts herself in that manner. And Peter has never come to court not knowing a case. So I'm not sure what happened in those situations, but I suggest that you partner yourself with the type a law firm that fits your style. I'm aggressive and I was happy to do some of my own legwork to move things along. Look at the results I got: Case dropped by the State's Attorney 44 days after the arrest. Proof positive about this firm.

I would also like to mention that for people in Orange County, Hal's office is right across the street from the jail. How convenient is that!

Thanks again to Hal and The Defense Group.

Jonathan F.

I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise and professionalism went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case.

I was overwhelmed when I heard the outcome of the court proceedings. Thank you for protecting my interest. I am so thankful for your service and professionalism.

I will never forget what you have done to make sure I was given a fair trial. You were able to prove the case beyond any reasonable doubt and we were more than pleased with the outcome. I feel so indebted to you for your hard work.

Thank you for always informing me of the best option to take in resolving my problem. I couldn’t believe when the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the charges and dropped the cases cases based on your representation. I really appreciate your negotiating skills and advice on the matter.

I wish you and your team best wishes and may god bless you all

Terry C.

I have known Attorney Uhrig for over 40 years and as a CPA referred many clients to him over those years. He has always provided prompt service to a client with great legal advice and representation when needed. He will not disappoint you.

Ernie J.

I was scared to death when I was arrested. I was not only afraid of jail but losing my job and my reputation. A friend of mine had used The Defense Group before as their Criminal Defense Lawyers. I met them, felt good and hired them. Great decision. All of my charges wound up being dripped. I have my life back. The lawyers and staff were very professional and got me the perfect result. I would never recommend anyone else. You will not be disappointed with the work they will do for your case. Will always keep you informed of your case status.

Jean P.

I have known the team at the Defense Group for over 10 years. They get fantastic results and treat their clients like family. If you are in need of legal assistance for a criminal matter, these would be the people to call. They are the utmost professionals and I totally recommend them.
