Great Job GIL COLON!!
Mar 13, 2015 | | Braselton, GA
Client's rating: 5 of 5

In 2013 of June, I was arrested by a former business partner who accused me of crimes committed and shortly after I was arrested in Georgia then extradited to Florida to face my charges. I was charged with 5 major felonies of theft and related crimes of theft. The experience of being charged, jail time and being under investigation was the worst experience I have ever faced both mentally, physically and spiritually. My wife and I hired Mr. Colon while I was in Georgia and all along the way Mr. Colon and his team comforted, gave direction and kept us up to date with what was going on. My wife and I knew from the beginning I was innocent and that the charges filed against must have derived from lies. After investigation by our Lawyer Colon our conclusion of foul play by the supposed victim was correct, my former partner not only screwed me out of a business I built, he lied to the cops hoping to damage us, hurt my family and screw us further financially. Even though Mr. Colon knew by my documentation that I was innocent he did not play around with the cops and state attorneys office because corruption and unfair practices exist in the legal system, Excellent representation are always a must. Mr. Colon took my case serious so he was very thorough with my documents, witness's and knowledge I presented to him. Mr. Colon is not just an attorney he proved to me that he has the legal smarts, exhibiting above normal in his common sense, and was wise concerning how to deal with the state attorneys office, the victim and assigned judges to my case. Mr. Colon knows how to think from both sides and move accordingly. He definitely has a plan from the get go on how to protect you, represent you, and slowly but strategically reveal the truth. All of my questions when asked were answered if not immediate they were over time. Mr. Colon was sensitive to my needs, made me feel that he was not just looking for money but that he was in my corner, he gave me attention to detail in areas I thought was important and that we requested. Mr. Colon as an attorney is still alive and breathing as a PERSON having Godly feelings and thoughts, he is not dead from the heart up. If you are in need of an criminal attorney I recommend Mr. Colon, He is not cheap but neither is jail time, dragged out investigation, scared name and or lack of peace. All of which cost you something.

Stacey McNelis is a trusted and well respected attorney. My family and I have always used her for any issues that have unexpectedly arisen. She handled my divorce with ease and helped me through all the many questions and concerns that came up during such a difficult process. I am so thankful that she was there for me. If you are looking for an attorney whom is professional, understanding, experienced and aggressive - She is the one for you.

Amazed by Mr. Colón's job.

Back in June a really close friend of mine was accused of violating an injunction order. He was not even in the state of Florida when the charges were submitted. Sometimes people use their powers to convince others to do bad things for them and that is when the injustice comes. Thanks to Mr. Colón, his great job and absolute compromise we have proven that they were wrong and now we have peace in our lives. They say, "not all heroes wear capes" I guess some of them were suits. Thanks!

Mr. Colon is the best in town

Mr. Colon helped me when I was going through a rough time and was arrested on driving charges. Watching him fight for me in the courtroom was unbelievable. Everyone watched him and listened to every word he said. He had the strongest presence I have ever seen in a courtroom and I felt like he was definitely working for the best outcome for me. I was more than impressed with his office and his staff was nothing but nice and accommodating. I would refer and have referred anyone in need of legal assistance to Mr. Colon's office. He definitely lives up to his nick name around Polk County as a "beast" in the courtroom.

Better than anticipated results with Mrs. McNelis!

I was served papers and only had a few days to prepare for an appearance in court. I did not have much time to figure out who was going to represent me in my divorce case and on a whim, I just up at the Bartow office of Colon & McNelis. Being a walk-in I was not expecting to be able to consult with an attorney right away but was surprised when the receptionist told me to have a seat. A short wait later, I was ushered into the office of Stacey McNelis. I explained my case, handed her the pile of papers I was trying to make sense of and she told me she could represent me and that she could be ready for the first court appearance in two days. Not having much time to prepare and having never been in a legal dilemma the process of what was to come seemed very daunting to me. Time and time again I have told friends and clients how impressed I was with the personal attention that was given to my case by the staff at Colon & McNelis and in particular Mrs. McNelis my attorney and her legal assistant Kelly Ehret. Phone calls were quickly returned, emails were prompt and our face to face meetings were always very productive. I appreciate how understating Mrs. McNelis was of my situation and how she always was very realistic and professional in our discussions. I know that there was always a lot going on at the office but when it came to me and my case, I had the feeling that I had the full attention of everyone and my case was the one one they were working on. The details of my case are not important. What you need to know is that the the outcome of my case was better than I had anticipated and I do believe it was because of how dedicated Mrs. McNelis and her staff had worked in representing me. I am so glad that I made the choice to work with the Colon & McNelis law firm and I am thankful to Mrs. McNelis for the hard work she did on my behalf. Thank you.

would recommend to anybody

Both Gil and Mrs McNelis are probably the best attorneys in their fields. I've been represented by both of them and wouldn't trust anybody else to handle my cases. As a added bonus you can't beat the girls in the office if you have a problem they handle it quickly!!! I've never seen anything like it. I'm a free man and have my daughter most of the time, because they've never drug their feet not once. Their a force to be reckoned with, God bless them they gave me my life back.

Worth every dollar I spent for a wonderful lawyer.

I found myself in a bit of a bind in Bartow, was pulled over by Polk police one night. After dropping off a grand friend was my first time in this city. So the police searched my car and found a pip with weed ash, amazingly I was put behind bars (jail). Not nothing any body from Bartow county I was scared and frighten by what I got myself in too. So I ask god please find a person that can help me through all the process. Well sitting in jail family bonding me out a officer from jail ask me if I had a attorny already I said I don’t but soon will need one. He said the best person for my situation would be Colon & McNeilis. Let me say I beleave in angles , come to our lives and lend a hand. As soon as I was out of Bartow with out any dought I called Colon and explained my charges to his employs. Now I now everybody makes mistakes but we all need a Attorny that make more understanding and fight for a case to the end. I payed a fine and other cost. I was blessed to find a Hero!!!!!!😍😍😍😍🤓🤗🙌🏽🤠🤠
