Mr. Porter and his staff are fantastic.
Mr. Porter and his staff are fantastic. They clearly explained the charges, potential outcomes and estimated timelines. They worked closely with me to tailor their services to my unique situation. The entire team demonstrated extensive knowledge of the law, flexibility, and responsiveness. These qualities helped put my mind at ease until they were able to get all charges against me dropped. I would highly recommend this law firm.
The experience was just wonderful! We would recommend them 10 times over.
My fiancé and I were referred here by a friend. Our lawyer was Nicole Carlucci and paralegal was Danielle Castillo, they were beyond wonderful. Easy to communicate with, always gave us our options and never made us feel pressured. Our relationship with them was very personable and we always felt as if we were their only clients! We seeked their help with regards to child support and time sharing. The experience was just wonderful!!!!! We would recommend them 10 times over.
Mr. Porter and his staff do an incredible job!
Mr. Porter and his staff do an incredible job! I would strongly recommend Mr. Porter, he is very easy to work with and does everything he can to help you in your situation.
Nicole Carlucci is an absolutely amazing attorney.
DIVORCE is one of the toughest things that you will ever experience in your life, especially when you have 4 young children involved. As a father fighting for 50% custody of my children this wasn't gonna be an easy task. Nicole Carlucci is an absolutely amazing attorney. Not only did she help me get 50% custody of my children, she absolutely destroyed the opposing attorney. They wanted 800$ a month child support, (I ended up paying 250$ a month) on 4 children. I would highly recommend Nicole Carlucci for any legal needs. Nicole Carlucci is always prepared & very professional.
My life is in a much better place today because of Jason's integrity within the community and relationships with the judges & state attorneys.
I have had several cases with Mr. Porter as my attorney. He went to bat for me and fought hard to get a great outcome every time! He is a top-notch attorney in Jacksonville and very professional & honest when dealing with each scenario of my cases.

We were always treated with respect and empathy from the entire staff. Jason Porter is honest, extremely knowledgeable, professional and he truly cares about his clients. There just are no words to accurately describe this wonderful group! Thank you so much for everything.
Compassionate Caring and Honest

He gave me information I have not been able to get anywhere else and I have tried. He gave me hope that there is light at the end of this tunnel. I have a much better understanding of what I need to do and how to proceed with this situation. I am grateful that Mr. Porter gave me the time and attention that he did today. I would encourage anyone needing help in a criminal case, no matter how big or small go and see Mr. Porter, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Mr. Porter thank you for your time today and all of the information you provided me with, it is appreciated beyond belief.

I have to go into detail here because there’s no way That I cannot give high praise for what Nicole Carlucci did for my daughter and I. I’ve learned the hardest way possible that men tend to be at a great disadvantage when dealing with a divorce and with custody problems. My ex-wife kidnapped our child and had every intention of destroying our bond and the great relationship we have. It’s the saddest thing in the world how some people take their own struggles and personal feelings out by using their children as pawns and manipulating to hurt others. Which is why I could not be happier and more grateful for the day I walked into Porter & Porter Law Firm. From day one, my story was heard, understood, and through a year and a half of what felt like full on war just so I could maintain my relationship with me daughter without us being ripped from each other’s lives, Nicole Carlucci supported me and used her expertise to get as close to the absolute best result possible. She never gave up or gave in and that helped me to stay strong, too, when there would be days or weeks my daughter and I would not see each other. If not for Nicole, I can only imagine how much more awful such a nightmare of a situation could have gotten. However, I am now divorced, continue to have an amazing relationship with my daughter, and have court orders to hold my ex responsible and accountable so that way certain things will hopefully never happen again, and if they do, I know who I am calling!! Nicole’s passion to help someone being taking advantage of and her drive to ensure justice be served when someone is manipulating the system is exactly what my daughter and I needed so we can live a happy life. Thank you Nicole and Firm!!
The best attorneys you will find. I love you guys!
Two very scary DUI cases in my life. The first involved a wreck, the second with a very high BAC. Jason Porter and Gary Shumard, you are both so very amazing and you have saved me so much havoc on these cases. Reduced to reckless on the first, and on the second, saved me from having the interlock system order in my car, another 10 days of immobilization, and more jail time. From the beginning, these two kept my anxieties calm through this process and the outcomes took all that load off. If you are financially strapped, trust me, they will work with you on that too. Sincerely.
This firm is great!
I love you all for everything you have done for me. I recommend this firm to everyone.
Aggressive and Compassionate. Highly Recommend.
I'd been accused of something I did not do. My situation was a total nightmare. I consulted with Attorney Porter and he assured me that my tough situation could be handled. Attorney Gary Shumar tirelessly worked my case, while showing patience and empathy when I felt frustrated. Needless to say, my charges were dropped. I highly recommend this firm.
I would refer anyone to this firm
It always baffled me how much both Jason and Gary knew about the intricacies of my case at any given time. These guys work for, and show up to court for, their CLIENTS - in other words, they're not cutting a bunch of deals to clear dockets. I will never go anywhere else for legal advice - these guys are the real deal.

This Legal Team is Wonderful!
One night I was awaken by a phone call that my son was in jail, I thought I was having a nightmare. I knew the charges were false but knew we faced a difficult road ahead to prove his innocence. The charges against him could have been enough to have caused him to lose his children, as well as his job and ruin any further career opportunities. He could have served time and had a felony on his record. . We were so lucky to find the law offices of Jason Porter. They came highly recommended and were rated high on the AVVO site. We were scheduled for an appointment the day we called and greeted openly but candidly with the facts of what could happen. He already had the police report and had a pretty good picture of what happen before we even opened our mouth. Jason put us at ease and explained how things would work and assured my son he would do his best to protect him and his good name and to get the charges dropped or reduced to the minimum he assured him he would not make him settle for something he did not do. He was not afraid to take it to trail if that’s what needed to happen. We felt good after hearing his trial record. Gary Shumard also in the office was involved in the day to day dealing of the court appearances and trying to keep it out of trial. He spoke for my son and there were several court appearances. My son was able to work and carry on his normal day because of Gary. During the six month process my son only had to attend one court appearance and that was only because the other side tried again to file additional fraudulent charges against him however, they were immediately dismissed thanks to Gary. In the end they wanted to drop the charges to a misdemeanor; but my son didn’t want anything on his record because he was not guilty! Gary had reviewed their evidence and my son’s evidence and in the end, after six months Gary was able to keep my son’s a record clean. Gary fought hard, gathering evidence and challenging the opposing side with professionalism and knowledge. I feel sure that due to his expertise we were able to avoid a long drawn out trail and more legal expenses. Gary works hard and is at the court house it seems almost every day working for his clients, he is a dedicated attorney with knowledge, and proficiency in handling the law he gathers evidence astutely and reviews both sides he has the ability to present his findings in a very comfortable but clever way. The day the findings came down I think he was almost as happy as we were. He had a right to be it’s like climbing a mountain and getting to the top you know you deserve the view. This law office is wonderful from the secretary who answers the phone, the legal assistants, and everyone in between. We trust this law firm and believe in them with any legal matter they we may have ever!! Richard & Diane Bornstein
Diane and Richard
Impressive Attorney’s very knowledgeable, able to fight for your rights always kind, handles conflict with professionalism by knowing their clients and the law. Great team! If I need attorneys every again I will return to them.
There are few times in our life when we need an attorney; but when one does you look for the best and hope that everything you have heard and read is true. Other than God, and my Husband there is Nothing that I hold closer in the world than my Children and Grandchildren. Earlier this year when my son was faced with the decision to get a divorce and protect his children he needed someone that would fight for him but even more someone who understood the needs of his son’s. Once we met with Maureen Horkin, we felt at ease. My son was going through all of the emotions and he needed some strong Legal support and representation. As a Mother and a grandmother, I could only offer love as could the rest of our family, however; Maureen was able to offer compassion to all of us, knowledge on how the legal system works and guide us through those rocky moments and times from beginning to end. I believe Maureen went into this trying to take care of my son and my grandsons. No divorce is ever perfect, but at the end what you want is what is best for the children and what is fair for both adults. While Maureen was compassionate, and always very concerned with the boys well-being she was demanding when it came to their rights She was never difficult with us; however she was hard-hitting and devoted to getting the job done whatever it took with the opposing side. It was apparent that she spent strenuous and taxing hours doing her job. She stood up for the boys through every unpleasant step whether it be filing the paper work or facing disagreeable behavior from the other side through-out the whole unpleasant ordeal, we knew we always had her by our side. The law was on our side but we didn’t know the law we knew and trusted Maureen. Long story short she is a classy, beautiful lady that knows the law, she is as sweet as your family maybe more so in some cases, and when it counts she is a quarterback that all the teams would fight over. Thank You Maureen, some people say when Momma is happy everybody is Happy well in my case when My Son and his Boys are happy I’m Happy. They want to be together and are so happy, I know he puts their happiness first, and words can never ever express my gratitude to you or your office for your professionalism, perseverance, and your ability to handle the conflicts and hostility with such finesse and never-ending skill. Diane Bornstein
Jason Porter is superb.
This is my personal experience with Jason porter. I was in need of an attorney. I didn't have a clue on where to go...who to call . or even if they would take the time to listen to my case. Jason porter was extra observative Very calm .. cool.. and collective. Very laid back . But don't let that fool ya. He's a very good attorney. He took our case and since the 1st visit he has lived up to everything he said he could do. Since every case is different. I truly feel as if he took our case personal This is so rare to see in attorneys nowdays Having a attorney that puts aside the so called business mentality to put people first is what I received even tho our case was small I'm sure there will be someone with a need for a attorney and I'm not some rich guy . I live paycheck to paycheck every week but I was treated like royalty respect . And I felt like my case was important I will never forget what he done with my case and the personal decision he made at the end that showed me beyond a doupt that Jason porter is a attorney on our side . Fighting for the clients not a paycheck . not afraid to stand up n fight and never break a sweat his cool demeanor breaks it all down so it's very understanding ... I can't tell you who to call for your attorney but if u read this. then u need to stick with Jason . I'm sure you'll love him and I'm sure you'll be happy Thanx again Jason porter you won my vote for attorney of the year 2015 and I hope I can help someone with there decision on choosing an attorney With Jason's law firm you won't go wrong
PERSONABLE SERVICE AND DOWN TO EARTH ATTORNEY "MS. MAUREEN HORKAN"
When I first met Ms. Maureen Horkan I immediately felt like I am not alone. She made me feel like I am her priority. Living here in the United States without any relatives other than with my abusive husband is very hard. English is not my primary language but she was so patient to listen to me. She fought for the injunction that I filled against my husband. Without her sincere dedication to my case my daughter and I would probably stay in the shelter or homeless with no child support. Thank you very much Mam, She was visible and accessible when I needed her. If you guys need an attorney that has a big heart and dedication to her job, MS. MAUREEN HORKAN is the one. I know in my heart that God leads me to the right person and she is like an angel that saved me from misery. She has the most humble and sincere heart. Now I can say that I am stronger, bold and courageous. Thank you MS. Maureen, YOU ARE SUCH A INSPIRATION!!!!
Jason is the most diligent attorney
He went all out to help me and never gave up. I owe him all my thanks. He honestly cares and doesn't make you feel less than special.
They turned my frown upside down!
I truly appreciated Maureen's help on my case, She put her best effort forward for me and it paid off!
I owe them the moon. Excellent service and great explanation of all matters. Precise and very professional. Thank you for all that you do! God Bless you all!
The Best I Could Imagine!!!
I used Jason Porters services after a bad roll over accident involving myself and my ALMOST 1 year old daughter when I lived in Jacksonville. Within 24 hours of contacting the office, I was seen by 2 physicians and my case was in full motion. My husband was deployed, and I was scared at first. However, Mr. Porter and his ENTIRE staff had me at immediate ease. I could email or call his assistant at any hour with any concern, and would have a response very quickly. I would highly recommend this office to anyone at any time. The compassion of the entire staff was more than I could have expected.
Thanks for everything.
Jason Porter and his firm were great. From the beginning to the end they helped me with all my needs and fought for me. Thank you!
Glad We Picked Porter!
Jason and Gary have been a tremendous help and provided relief in a time of worry for my family. They kept us informed and went above and beyond for us! I will recommend this firm to everyone!
I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough.
Jason Porter has helped me on two separate occasions and both times his attention to detail really impressed me. His staff is wonderful and easy to work with. The second time I worked with Jason Porter, he turned what I thought was a hopeless situation into a miracle. He literally got me my life back by getting the charges reduced. His experience as a trial lawyer came in handy when he had to work with the district attorney to change the judge's mind on my case. Jason Porter has a calming demeanor and he instilled confidence when going over the details of my case. I tended to be pessimistic, but Jason Porter would always reassure me and keep me positive. I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough for all that he has done for me and my family. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I know I can count on Jason Porter to give me my best chance at a favorable outcome.
Jason and his staff were very professional.
100% success rate. I used Jason Porter's services two different times for a DUI charge. The first DUI case I never lost my license and he won the case. The second time it was a little more difficult because of the circumstances but we took it to trial and it seemed like an effortless victory. Jason and his staff were very professional and helpful through the entire process.I could not have asked for anything more. Thank you so much for everything.
He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community.
I first met Jason Porter in 2003, when our children attended a Christian Preschool together. I saw what he did within our community. He helped many of the families from the preschool over the years so when it came time that my family needed a lawyer I chose him. Jason has helped my family and several of my personal friends, all with positive outcomes. He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community. You will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion. I don't know another lawyer of his caliber that offers free consultations and you speak to him personally. Pick Porter.
Very professional attorney!
I worked with Mr. Porter over a period of time and found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and reassuring. The process was tedious, but he kept me informed and walked me through any issues or questions I had. He is very nice, professional and easy to talk to. I really appreciated how he handled everything for me. I would highly recommend Mr. Porter if you are looking for an attorney who cares about you. (And not just your money.)
Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand.
When I got into an accident, I didn't think I needed a lawyer. However, everything was so confusing and the insurance company was being very pushy. Once I decided I needed to contact a lawyer, I wasn't sure who to call. On the recommendation of a friend who had used him in the past and had a very good experience, I called Jason Porter. I was given an appointment the next day and it was during that appointment I knew I had contacted the right law firm. Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He assured me that I would not need to do anything but to get better and he was right! He and his amazing paralegal handled everything so I didn't have to deal with all of the confusion of the insurance company while trying to heal from the injuries I sustained in the accident. Ultimately my case was settled with the insurance company and I received a very fair settlement. I am hoping I never have to use a lawyer again, but if I do, I will definitely be contacting Mr. Porter again.
Jason answered all my emails and phone calls.
There is nothing like the fear and uncertainty the legal system brings to keep you up at night, especially when it involves your child. For this reason selecting an attorney was one of the most daunting and important decisions I made; after much research that’s why I chose Jason Porter. Throughout the legal process Jason answered all my emails and phone calls, he figuratively provided the hand holding my son and mostly I needed to be reassured the outcome would be in our favor. Needless to say the outcome was in our favor and I could not have been more pleased with Jason’s service. I was so pleased with Jason’s professionalism and legal savvy that I asked if he practices law outside of criminal defense, so I could use his services for all my legal needs. He will always receive my business in the future.
When needed, you answered my questions clearly and politely.
The purpose of this letter is to compliment your law office and its associates on its excellent service. When needed, you answered my questions clearly and politely, offered recommendations, and worked expediently to ensure that all possible aspects of my case have been covered and researched.
He prepared our family through each and every step.
"Bad things happen to good families and people” That is one of the first things Jason said to me and my son. The laws are set to protect us. However, the law can be black and white when there are several shades of grey. If a man has a beer in his own house after coming back from war but is only 20, should his dad be charged for contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Have you ever done something now looking back, it may not have been the best decision but nothing happened? That was not the case a few years ago to my family. A bad decision, one I am sure many of us have done in our younger days. A bad decision was made and it could have ruined a young man’s future. The courts are busy and things can fall through the cracks; I was making sure my son was not one of them. I knew Jason had worked for the District attorney’s office so he knew both sides of the law. He knew what the other side was going to do and say because he was there for many years. He prepared our family through each and every step. He made sure that we were proactive “getting ducks in a row” so to speak. If there was something mentioned, we had already taken care of it and showed no history and really no where for the other side to go. What could have been jail time ended up being a bump in the road. No one can promise anything is a sure thing. Jason did not make any promises he was not prepared to keep. He told us what normally happens, and what he was going to try for and he did. I rather have someone say there is a 70/30 chance than, “sure this is no problem, don’t worry about it”. We do worry about it. It is our lives or one of someone we love. Some cases may not be life or death, but they all are between a life that could be and a life that never will be. Jason understands that and approached it as if was his brother standing next to him. Every now and then, I will look at my son when eating dinner or something and think, if it was not for Jason and his group, I would have to visit my son to see him. I thanked God for Jason being there then, and have every day since.
He is our family attorney forever.
There are times when you may need unforeseen legal assistance and your scared and don't have a clue if youre making the right choice. The decision is not an easy one when it's based on your family and life. You worry if they have your best interest at heart, if they know enough, if they know the right people and it's very emotional & confusing. Ten years ago my family was faced with the worst nightmare any mother could ever imagine & I prayed to God to make the right decision and I did. Meeting Jason Porter & his assistant Darlene C. (she's been with him longer than that), was the best in my life in my family's life. Jason doesn't have a big office turn around, in fact I have watched his office grow to the success it is today. His staff stays because they know they are with a terrific guy & great attorney. I can go on and on and mean every word from the bottom of my heart but the are truly no words to describe the great outcomes he has had for 2 of my sons on separate occasions. Unfortunately, we don't live in a society anymore where "boys will be boys". There are way too many laws and not enough of societal morality (due to a change of the times). Boys may get in trouble, they did get in trouble but with their unfortunate choices, my choice was the better in retaining Jason and his law firm. He is our family attorney forever.
Mr. Porter was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Mr. Porter helped me in 2010 with a Breach of Contract case in which he was able to recover my earned commissions from my former employer. Mr. Porter was very friendly and knowledgeable in the area of Non Compete agreements which allowed for a quick settlement from my former employer. The staff was great and addressed my issues and questions in a timely fashion. I would recommend Mr. Porter to anyone that has a case in the areas he practices in.
