I was facing a lot of time; with an uphill climb to make my case. Jason listened, he had the expertise, the knowledge and experience to win the day. He acted expeditiously to get everything submitted promptly applying the facts with his knowledge of the law and the legal system to effectively present my case. The result: an 18 year sentence vacated ! I recommend Jason for his personal manner and his professionalism and knowledge of the law and the legal system.

Best choice – impossible situation became a dream realized!

I highly recommend to you the person and services of Jason Forman. He was most diligent in aggressively pursuing the desired result in our case. A sentence of more than 18 years was vacated, what looked like an impossible situation, became a realized dream due to his professional, persistent actions on our behalf. Jason is personable, knowledgeable and efficient in using his connections and resources. We had a ready line of communication, always felt like we were heard and that he understood and acted on our concerns. Jason’s knowledge of the law and “the system” together with his excellent communication and “people skills” made him to be our best choice as the advocate for our loved one.

Great Appeals Lawyer!

Jason Forman is a wonderful Appeals Lawyer. We hired Jason to appeal our son’s case. He had 4 life sentences plus 60 years given by a biased judge. Miraculously, Jason was able to get the judge removed from our son’s case. He was also able to get all of the sentences vacated due to ineffective assistance of counsel! Jason was always there to answer questions and walk us through everything. He would always make sure to contact us and let us know what was going on. Now our son has a fair chance in court because of him. We also love Maria, who was always very kind and made sure that Jason got our messages and would contact us right away. Our family could not have asked for a better lawyer. Jason did an amazing job! If you need a good lawyer Jason is one of the best.


Conviction Overturned on Appeal!

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!

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!

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

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!

We were fortunate to have Attorney Jason Forman represent us in a very challenging case after we had grown weary of consultations that left us feeling our case was a lost cause. After our first consultation with Jason Forman ,we knew without a doubt he was our choice for this appeal. He showed a genuine interest in our concerns with past denials with this case, and there were many let me tell you. We appreciate his skill and expertise in legal strategy specific to the issues with this case. He was always pleasant, professional and very responsive to our calls, questions and concerns. Jason Forman is an amazing hardworking Attorney and a good human being that cares about his clients! We definitely recommend you give Jason Forman a call if you need an Attorney!

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! 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,
