When making the decision to hire a criminal defense lawyer, several things must always be kept in mind. It is better to involve legal representation sooner, rather than later. Should you choose to work with an inexperienced firm or a public defender, you may get exactly what you pay for. With their time spread thin and their experience at a minimum, you risk facing serious consequences when using their services.

Our legal team, however, has vast experience and seasoned advice to offer all of our clients. We work with you to find a reasonable and aggressive solution to your case, and it does not stop there. We will always protect your rights, in and out of court, and we will work day in and day out until we know that we have a competent and compassionate argument on our side.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney... knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and how would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."


  • Excellent Attorney

    “Mr. Kinsell helped me out of a 30+ mph speeding ticket and got all the points removed from my drivers license. Very easy to work with especially since I lived out of state. Cannot be more grateful for his help.”


  • We consulted with Mr. Kinsell immediately after the incident. We hired him on the spot.

    “Miles Kinsell is a great attorney and a also a great person. Libby in the office is also excellent. They are true professionals. My son got in serious legal trouble on his first semester away at college in Gainesville; a drug charge. We consulted with Mr. Kinsell immediately after the incident. We hired him on the spot. He told us exactly what charges the police would most likely file, what the State attorney would most likely do, and all of the possible and probable resolutions to the situation. He definitely knows his way around the Gainesville legal system. And this experience is what enabled him to get my son the best resolution possible. Mr. Kinsell and his staff, specifically Libby, answered every one of our phone calls, or promptly returned our voice mail messages. We always felt more at ease after the conversation because we knew we were in good hands. As a result, he definitely got us the best result possible and my son has an opportunity to put this experience behind him with no blemishes on his record”


  • He answered all of my questions, kept me informed of developments and also treated me respectfully.

    “Mr. Kinsell was amazing to work with. I received a notice of a 5-year license revocation from the State of Florida, giving me 3 weeks notice. I called another attorney first, which ended up wasting a full week. Mr. Kinsell was able to get my previous guilty designation changed on a traffic ticket and also get my license reinstated within 3 weeks, which included a holiday. I would highly recommend Mr. Kinsell for all of your traffic and criminal defense needs. He answered all of my questions, kept me informed of developments and also treated me respectfully.”

    Former Client

  • I just can't say enough good things about this law firm.

    “Believe me, Miles is the best! He always answers the phone on the weekends. Miles helped me with an issue that's been haunting me for over 10 years. He made one phone call and everything was taken care of. I just can't say enough good things about this law firm.”

    Former Client

  • Miles Kinsell is THE criminal defense attorney to have represent you.

    “My husband got in criminal trouble for something his work alleged that he did. We called Miles Kinsell because several people said he was the "best criminal attorney in town." Mr. Kinsell was professional and knowledgeable. My husband and I felt comfortable with his future in Mr. Kinsell's hands. He walked us through the process and kept us involved. After an intial plea offer involving prison, Mr. Kinsell aggressively handled our case and got the prosecutors office to drop the charge to a misdemeanor. My husband spent no time in jail! We strongly recommend Miles Kinsell and if anypne we knew ever got in criminal trouble, we wouldn't hesitate to say that Miles Kinsell is THE criminal attorney to have represent you.”
