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!

Too many good things to say about Mr Forman & his Assistant Maria, “First Class” is the word that comes to mind. I actually hired him because of his reviews and was not disappointed. After the drama started with my 19 year old son I didn’t know where to start but I knew I needed a “go getter” and my prayers were answered. We needed a new judge, but the judge did not want to get of our case. So Jason filed an appeal and we won! He knows his stuff, my son is doing a lot less time than what we first thought he would have to do and I am grateful, thankful & blessed to have had Mr Forman & Maria on our side!!
An amazing attorney for my appeal!

Jason Forman is a truly amazing attorney! I was given 15 years in prison because of errors made by my previous attorney, while my 7 co-defendents received probation. I hired Mr. Forman for my appeal and he was simply amazing! He had the ability to win my appeal and get back my life! I then hired him to take care of a case where I was supposed to do 3 years probation before being sentenced to the 15 years in prison. He recognized the fact that the sentence should have been ran concurrently with the 15 sentence, yet another error by the other attorney. Amazingly, he was also able to have the probation terminated after serving only one month. He was there for me the whole time and always took the time to explain things to me. He explained everything that I didn’t understand, as well as the different possible outcomes. It took nothing short of a miracle for Jason to make all of those things happen. I am forever grateful for his hard work, determination, and skill. Thank you Jason!!
My sentence was reduced by 7 years!

I was introduced to Jason over a telephone while I was sitting in prison. I was 21 years old with a release date of 2023. I knew good things were going to come with Jason working on my case. He filed my direct appeal to the 4th dca and represented me for oral arguments to the 4th dca. The appeal was denied. Persistent in his work, Jason didn’t stop with the denial. He stayed in contact with me while I was locked away and told me that he was working on it from the inside. It seemed like nothing was getting done, but he was apparently working behind the scenes. I was working on being patient. Then he filed a motion to mitigate my sentence which got me back in front of a judge. There didn’t seem to be any hope, but Jason got me a chance of possibly being released. After sitting in county jail, my sentence was reduced and my new release date was in 2016. Jason got my sentenced reduced by 7 years! It would not have been possible without Jason on my side. I was recently released and now able to move on with my life.

Jason Forman is hands-down the best attorney I’ve ever met. I was charged with one count of Grand Theft over $100K, a first degree felony. After hiring not one, but TWO failed attorneys who basically did nothing for me and ran off with the fees, I was given 10 years in prison. After losing my post-conviction and spending two years behind bars, I was desperate. My family and I started looking for an attorney who was actually winning appeals, not just someone who had a big name. That’s how we found Jason. His name stood out on many appeals in the Fourth DCA that had been decided in his favor. So we hired him. He went over my entire case with a fine-tooth comb, and lo and behold he found a needle in a haystack. What he did with my case was truly nothing short of a miracle. To make a long story short, I’m no longer incarcerated. If it wasn’t for Jason, I would still have 5 1/2 years left to go. But I’m home with my children and family… free as a bird. If you want a lawyer who will truly work for you and treat you with respect, Jason Forman is the one you’re looking for.

In my current need of proper legal consultation, Jason Todd Forman came through. He did not hesitate and acted with urgency. After reviewing my request, he provided an accurate and honest response to the to my situation. Unfortunately, I was unable to afford his services, however I truly appreciated his candor. Attorney Forman expressed diligence and responded quickly. I rate him excellent, professional, knowledgeable, honest and the attorney to hire if you’re able to afford his services. He did help me.

Back in Feb, I was charged with possession with intent to sell cannabis, 3rd degree felony and possession of paraphernalia. It truly was a horrible experience as I was thrown in jail by a faulty accusation. Well I hired Jason after seeing great reviews. He was a class act and ensured me he was going to help me. He managed to get the felony thrown out! I then simply did a misdemeanor drug court and my case was dismissed. All is good now. Thank you for a great job Jason. Hire him if you can. His secretary is nice and Jason is always reachable for any concerns. Good team. Good results.
Excellent…I am still amazed at the great job done!

Jason Forman was excellent in every aspect. He was straight forward, he explained how everything was going to happen, he explained all of the consequences, alternatives and every option. Every time I called to see how everything was going he always responded and explained very detailed how everything was going. Thankfully and in record time we received the great news that all charges were dropped! Thank you so much I am still amazed at the great job done!!!
We won the appeal…you will not be disappointed!

My son was charged with a first degree felony and sentenced to 15 years in prison. The whole case was a total disaster and essentially I had given up hope that anything could be done to give my son his life back. Since I do not live in Florida and I was not familiar with the attorneys down there, Jason was highly recommended to us by another attorney who represented my son at one point to handle our appeal. I was skeptical at first but after speaking to Jason, only over the phone, I felt confident that Jason would fight for my son. What I especially like about Jason is that he does not give you false hope, never sugar coats anything, is brutally honest and he is always accessible by email or phone no matter what day or time you reach out to him and he always responds promptly. Because of Jason we won the appeal and my son’s sentence was reversed and remanded to go before another judge. We still have to bring the matter to a conclusion but no matter what the outcome, I have complete faith and trust that Jason will not give up until we get the result we are praying for! I have been a legal assistant for over 23 years and worked for criminal attorneys but Jason is by far one of the most honest, forthright and diligent attorneys I know. Do not think twice about hiring Jason Forman. You will not be disappointed!!

I reside in Ohio and hired Jason Forman by telephone to represent my son who was in Fort Lauderdale for drug rehab. My son had been arrested for burglary for the second time while out on bond. He had relapsed and was living on the street. He was incarcerated with no bond facing several felony charges and possible prison. He was a drug addict that committed crimes to support his addiction. I interviewed several attorneys by phone and hired Jason Forman based on my feelings that he was the best attorney to represent him. After a few months in jail waiting for the case to resolve, my son was released with no more additional jail time and simply probation and no felony conviction. Jason conducted depositions and filed a motion to suppress evidence, which led to the prosecutor offering a great deal instead of prison. Jason always responded to my questions quickly throughout this process. Being from Ohio, I had a lot of questions. He even assisted in helping with holding all of my sons personal belongings that were going to be disposed of by the jail because they only hold these items for a short period. The jail time was very good for fighting my sons drug addiction. With release from jail, he has returned to rehab with a very positive attitude. Thanks Jason!
