Conviction Overturned on Appeal!
2020 | , Former Client
Client's rating: 5 of 5 -- Highly Recommended!

After a very circumstantial conviction for burglary, Jason targeted the most erroneous aspects of my case and submitted an appeal with the best possible outcome. His professionalism encompasses not only his expertise in criminal defense and the appellate systems, but also in his excellent communication. There is no question or concern that he is not available to answer thoroughly and comprehensively at any time. I highly recommend Jason to anyone facing a criminal conviction to handle the lengthy and complicated appellate process!

Exceptional!

Client's rating: 5 of 5 -- Highly Recommended!

We hired Mr. Forman to represent us on a post conviction appeal. A very very old case, his concern, expertise, and attention to detail is unheard of from my other failed attempts at getting back into court with issues that had not been raised previously. He was exceptional. His knowledge of judicial system and issues in this case that were handled inappropriately prior put us at ease. Through many years of failed attempts getting back into court with others lawyers, he was able to find the means to do so. He is honest hard working and he listens to his clients.

Incredibly Thankful!

I am so incredibly thankful that my husband and I found Jason! We needed advice pertaining to a VERY complex legal issue that had the potential to negatively affect our lives in a huge way. We had spoken to two other attorneys prior who gave us their brief opinions based on what they felt was likely to be the outcome of our issue, but we just felt like we needed someone to spend more time looking into the exact details and get us official answers to our questions.

From the moment Jason picked up the phone, he was kind, nonjudgmental, and cautiously optimistic. Our case required a great deal of research, which he exhaustively completed, keeping us updated the entire time. Turns out, our situation was not nearly as hopeless as what we had been told in our previous consults with the other attorneys. Thanks to his tireless efforts, we are thrilled to be able to move forward from this ancient legal issue.

I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you need an attorney who will exhaust every avenue to produce the best possible legal outcome for you, Jason Forman is the only one to call!

Jason made the impossible possible!

Client's rating: 5 of 5 -- Highly Recommended!

Jason made the impossible possible! After hiring three separate “well reputable and highly sought attorneys,” my case resulted in 23 year prison sentence. After spending nearly $140,000 on lawyers for my defense and appeals (without any success), I lost my faith in all lawyers. I even hired a “Board Certified Criminal Defense Trial Lawyer,” who did absolutely nothing but take my family’s money, I did not know what to do because of my previous experience with these so called “top notch” attorneys. I thought that my life was over and I would have to spend the next 23 years in prison. A family friend who practiced law in Canada had recommended Jason Forman for my post-conviction relief proceedings.

Jason is unlike any attorney I’ve encountered. Jason actually cared about everything that had happened in my case and what the other attorneys did to my family and me. He was not scared to take on and confront my previous attorneys, Even though he sees them on a weekly basis in court. He was ready and willing to depose all of them if it was required. I have witnessed first hand how he went in all for me. I entered into a plea (which resulted in the 23 year sentence), and for those not aware, a plea is like entering into an iron clad contract. The case is pretty much closed and the courts very rarely reverse pleas ( it does not look good on the courts to do so).

However, Jason worked his magic and convinced the State and the Judge into giving me a much better deal for a lot less time. Jason spared my family and me from a lifetime of agony in prison. I am referring to him as Jason, and not Mr. Forman, because Jason was not only my attorney, but he is also a great friend. He will always have a place in my heart. I never thought I could or would ever be able to say that about any attorney. Look no further for an advocate. Jason T. Forman will do everything he can to better your situation. My only regret is not finding him sooner!

POST CONVICTION SUCCESS!

Client's rating: 5 of 5 -- Highly Recommended!
POST CONVICTION SUCCESS! A friend of mine was going through some tough times and was charged with a crime. The public defender that was appointed to her arranged a plea bargain. Unbeknownst to my friend, her plea bargain resulted in her imprisonment that was to possibly last 10 years. She felt her sentence was too severe in proportion to the charges. I attempted to help her from afar and I came across an attorney named Jason Forman. His website was full of outstanding reviews from people who he has helped in many ways. The reviews caught my attention right away & I just had to call him to see if he could help us. I knew immediately what a great attorney he must be because he seemed genuinely interested & eager to do what he could. The girl I was helping was also very impressed after she spoke with him. We both knew we didn’t want anyone else to take her case! He was well spoken & knew the law well. He was very compassionate to her dilemma. He quickly researched her case & agreed there could be a resolution for her case. Knowing the law as well as he does, he realized the previous attorney had misled her. As the wheels of justice turned, Jason was always available and easy to contact. He provided updates on what was happening and what to expect next. He was very receptive to our details as we discussed the case. We felt confident while he did his job because we trusted him that much. In the end, he was able to show the court where the mistakes were & that she had been wronged. Jason was able to get the Post-Conviction relief & her prison sentence was reduced by 5 years! All because of Jason’s perseverance, legal knowledge and abilities. He was able to give her life back to her. I write this to help others when choosing an attorney to know that Jason Forman will go above & beyond to get the best results in your case. He is the right man for the job! Thank you Jason!

Awesome Man! Life Sentence Reversed.

I called Mr Forman after reviewing reviews on the web. My Son was serving LIFE in prison. I was Scared, Nervous, i didn’t know what to do. The first time I talked to him he calmed me down, My Son just got sentenced that day to life. He advised me he could help and asked me many questions about the case. He talked to me for about 40 minutes. I thought to myself this lawyer really cares. Jason advised me what he could do. Nothing other than talking that day happened. He made me feel better and he said he would look into it. He told me how much it would cost for something like this to happen and honestly, I thought wow how can I do this, My Wife of 37 years just passed away a month earlier. Thinking wasn’t going good for me. He advised me there is nothing fast in a appeal because it takes time and to think it over and if interested, get back with him.

Words cannot express our gratitude and comfort he gave me on that first phone call and it didn’t cost me and we talked a long time. After I got myself together I went down and visited Jason I was from Polk County so it was a drive. After talking to him again I hired him. As the Appeal went on Jason never stopped keeping in touch and it did take time. But at the end of everything, Jason got my Son’s Life Sentence Reversed! My God I didn’t know how to Thank Him what an AWESOME MAN !  I couldn’t wait to see my Son and when I did I was in tears, I can’t say enough. All I can is “THANK YOU to JASON” and say if your looking and reading this I recommend him to you or anyone that needs an Honest Attorney,

Outstanding Knowledge of Criminal Law and Appeals Specialist!

Client's rating: 5 of 5 -- Highly Recommended!

Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for Jason Forman representing our son and giving him back the life he deserved. “Thank You, Jason”. Our son was arrested in Duval County for Conspiracy to commit armed robbery (Count 1) and 2nd degree Felony Murder (Count 2). After hiring an attorney which basically took our money, we knew we had to look for the Best Appeal Specialist. After numerous days of searching, we ran across Jason Forman. We did some research on his knowledge, Appeals won, and criminal Law experience along with quite a few others. He had the best reviews and knowledge of criminal law and Criminal Appeals. We contacted him, and he was very impressing. We knew we had found the Best.

Jason filed our son’s direct appeal, arguing four strong issues. The court found Fundamental error. Our son was convicted of a non-existent form of murder. (Count 2) The (Count one) was still intact. My son still had the 15 year Conspiracy charge, but the Felony murder was reversed. Then Jason once again used his vast knowledge of criminal Law and got my son’s sentence reduced to 5 years, months short of time served. My son will be home shortly. Our Lives can be complete again!

He went over everything he found and how he was going to present this case to us, and my son in prison. Before doing any filing we both got copies of his proceedings. He was always there for us, and my son for any questions, and concerns. He answered phone calls promptly (with a very short time), along with any concerns, and questions. Our emails were returned shortly! He had so much patience with us and showed his dedication and understanding of the stress we were all under. He made us feel like we were his only client, although he was dealing with numerous more.

There are so many attorneys out there, which promise you, they can resolve everything…but do nothing but harm you. Jason will not promise you anything he doesn’t believe he can do. But he has his own theories of how he can approach your case and will give you his full dedication. I cannot thank Jason enough for giving my son back the life he deserves. There are no words that can express our gratitude and thanks. All we can say is Jason Forman is the BEST Appeal Specialist and Criminal Appeal attorney. If you are searching for the best, look no further. He will always be recommended from us!
Thanks So Much Jason, Our son will be home soon, and we owe it all to you!

How do you say thank you to someone who has saved your son from a 2.5 year prison sentence?

After a disastrous four year battle ending with a 2.5 year guilty felony conviction all our faith in the judicial system had been lost. We knew we had to appeal this case and find another attorney. Our first experience was so horrific and expensive we were unsure where to begin. We found Jason after researching on the internet “Appeal Attorney Fort Lauderdale”. From our initial contact, Jason was nothing but professional, courteous and hard working. At our very first meeting with Jason, he noticed some definite mistakes made in the first trial. He presented us with the facts, did not sugar coat anything and worked hard to present the appeal which we subsequently won. Jason never promised anything, but was honest, professional and quick to respond to our phone calls, texts or emails. After hearing the case, the appellate reversed my son’s convictions and we won the appeal!

When the case was sent back to the felony court, Jason filed a stand your ground motion and eventually negotiated the sentence to a reduced misdemeanor plea with no probation and time served – NO JAIL TIME!! There are no words to thank Jason for his hard work and dedication on this case. We truly appreciate all the effort he put into this case. If you are looking for an honest, hardworking, reliable and diligent attorney Jason Forman is hands down the BEST- a true professional! Thank you Jason!

Jason gave me my freedom back. Very Experienced Appeals Specialist. I owe it all to him!

My name is JR. I am writing this review to inform you how great of an attorney Jason Forman is. There is so much to say, but I will keep this brief. First and foremost, do your research on the background history of the attorney and the attorney’s outcome of cases. This is how I came across Jason Forman, after numerous hours of me and my family searching. In 2015, I lost trial in Duval County, Fl. To (Count 1) Conspiracy to commit armed robbery and (Count 2) 2nd Degree Felony Murder. I was later sentenced to 15 years (Count 1) and 22 years (Count 2).

I immediately filed for an appeal and began looking for an Appeal Specialist. Notice the Appeal Specialist Part! There are so many attorneys out there that paint that perfect picture, as my first trial lawyer did. Jason spent a lot of time talking with my family and myself, which caught my attention. Most attorneys out there are very short, that’s even if you actually get to talk to them, instead of their associate. He always answered any questions, returned calls, and emails (immediately). He kept me updated, which can be hard (due to me being incarcerated). He never gave false hope or sold me a dream to say…Just FACTS!

So Jason filed my direct appeal arguing four very strong issues. With me working in the Law library at my institution, I researched how strong the case law was supporting what Jason was arguing in the Appeal. Well, the State comes back saying they concede to Fundamental error on (Count 2) Felony Murder. But (Count 1), the Conspiracy offense stays intact. With the Felony Murder conviction now reversed, I still had a 15 year sentence. That’s where Jason once again showed his skills, fought on my behalf and got my sentence reduced to 5 years (DOC). I will be home in a few months!  Now, with that being said, I also want to tell you my mother can be quite persistent and Jason had nothing but patience with her. So, I wish to whoever reads this, Good Luck! Keep your head up and never give up. Jason is highly recommended and experienced… beyond the Best!
