“Kevin was different than other attorneys I’ve seen advertising… I liked this guy… The outcome couldn’t have been better!”

Ruth | Tampa, FL

Throughout the case, Kevin demonstrated exceptional legal expertise and provided excellent guidance, working tirelessly to help me get the case dismissed. With numerous court appearances and hard work, Kevin was able to get the case dismissed entirely, relieving me of any legal penalties or conditions. I am incredibly grateful for Kevin's representation - his professionalism, dedication, and expertise in domestic battery cases were invaluable. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who needs legal representation for a domestic battery case or any other legal matter. He truly exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be more grateful for his assistance.


My wife and I were so pleased with the job Kaitlyn Statile did for us in representing a close relative of ours. He had committed a crime in Florida that landed him in jail facing possibly many years in prison. We contacted Kaitlyn's office in a desperate attempt to get him help. We were remote from the situation living in Maryland. She took on the case for a reasonable fee and saw it all the way to completion which resulted in the charges being way reduced and allowing our relative to enter a facility where he would receive help for his addiction. We were so happy with the outcome. She even took on some additional charges as part of her workload without asking for additional funding and did the whole job within the original amount. Her communication skills were excellent as well. We highly recommend her! Thank you Kaitlyn!


I was arrested for an incident that was the most significant and life-changing event I've ever experienced. I was a mental mess and had to be checked in and given medication to calm down. I had no idea what to do or where to turn, until I met attorney Kevin Hayslett. Kevin was able to provide exceptional legal guidance and a calming presence that helped me get through this difficult time. After a year and a half, Kevin was able to get the case ultimately dismissed. I am forever indebted to him for his tireless work and unwavering support. Since then, I have adopted a new puppy, which I named Kevin, to honor the man who helped me get my life back on track. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone in need of legal representation. He is a true professional who goes above and beyond for his clients, and I am incredibly grateful for everything he has done for me.

Kevin Hayslett and his team did a great job on my daughter's case. We were very concerned when our 20 year old daughter had gotten into trouble for a DUI. I honestly thought this was going to affect her future and her mother and I was scared and lost. Kevin assured us from the beginning that he would take care of everything and we are so glad we hired him because he was able to get it reduced so she didn't have a DUI on her record.


I hired Kevin Hayslett firm with hope that they can get my case dismissed. I have been told, that he was the one that I needed to contact and I have to say I am definitely impressed. His legal expertise is astonishing. And I can’t be more grateful enough. He went above and beyond to help me in a desperate time of need I will always use this firm for any legal matter that I might have. They are amazing!


After a rear end collision and dealing with injuries to my neck, and back. I contacted Carlson & Meissner, a firm I had used years ago on another matter that had a successful outcome. I was referred to attorney Jennifer Burns. I was impressed with her honesty and negotiation toughness. She secured a settlement above my expectation. This law firm is a one stop shop that gets results.


Attorney Casey Carlson was instrumental in negotiating a settlement for me. I was impressed with how quickly the process moved forward, and when individuals on the other side were causing delays, Attorney Casey Carlson navigated his way around to the right people to get the settlement done. His paralegal, Lisa Constable was also on the ball from start to finish.


Kevin Haslett is the man you need to hire! He represented me in a DUI in Clearwater Florida and I'm so happy that I decided to go with Carlson Meissner Haslett because Kevin was able to get the charges dropped! He goes above and beyond for his clients and I'm so grateful.


Kevin Hayslett and his team did a phenomenal job on my sister’s case. From the moment of speaking to his assistant, Shannon, they have been nothing but very informative and kept me up-to-date on everything that has been going on with my sister’s DUI case.


I am so grateful for this firm! Kevin was able to achieve what looked to be impossible yet again!! My family and I have used Kevin for years and I wouldn’t recommend any other firm!! His receptionist Amity in the Clearwater office is awesome!! If you have any legal needs that you need an attorney for call Kevins office!


If you need an attorney for anything, I recommend you calling Kevin Hayslett. Kevin doesn't practice all types of law but he will always provide you with excellent counsel on who would be best to handle your situation. From traffic, business to general information I always make a call to Kevin. If you have ever seen the movie Pulp Fiction, Kevin is the Wolf... When he shows up, you have nothing to worry about.


My experience with Carlson Meissner Hayslett,was amazing.I highly recommend them for anything .My case was an accident. At first I thought well they must be really to busy to listen to me. But then I had to ask myself to give it time that cases take time an trust inn them to do me right .Exactly what I thought happened and I couldn't be more happy . Lawyers an paralegals have busy days they're listening they just don't have that much time to listen to me whine over something their on top of already . So once I cal m Ed down an let God do his work loan an behold one day I got that phone. Call winner winner chicken dinner . A much deserved victory because they care thank you to Sue an Jennifer and everyone else. At the Clearwater location for handling my case God bless you all you saved. Me literally.


I had an amazing lawyer named Kevin Hayslett in Clearwater, Florida. He helped me with my boating under the influence (BUI) case and was really great. He has helped lots of people with BUI cases before, and he was very good at giving me advice and making me feel better. His assistant Shannon was so caring, kept informed during the process, and always so quick to respond to my questions. Because of Kevin, I only had to pay $50 and didn't have to do anything else. I would tell everyone to hire him, he is the best lawyer I have ever met!


First off I want to say I had never used a lawyer before so when I needed one I didn’t know who to turn to, I was put in touch with Ryan T. Cox. Mr. Cox was a HUGE help with my case, he was attentive, caring, and I truly believe he actually fought for me and had my best interest in mind throughout the ENTIRE process. He always kept me up to date with what has happening and never pressured me to make a certain decision when it came to the court. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Mr. Cox if you find yourself in need of a lawyer. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would!!


My neighbor had told me about this lawfirm. My grandson had gotten into some pretty serious trouble with the law and I didnt know what to do. I felt completely helpless. My grandson suffered from alcoholism and needed help! Kevin Hayslett was able to keep my grandson from going to prison and get him the treatment that he so desperately needed. My grandson has been doing so much better and I am so proud of him. I feel like he's finally on the road to becoming who God called him to be. I will forever be so grateful.


I have never been in legal trouble before but I unfortunately was in a situation that got me in some serious trouble and could have changed the course of my life. Kaitlyn Statile stood out amongst many other attorneys I had consulted with such confidence and comfort. She was able to get my case dismissed within 3 weeks! I am so grateful that I found her and was able to get my life back. Thank you so much!!!!!


I was referred to Carlson and Meissner MeissnerLaw Office by my former Chiropractor. I have never dealt with anything like this before. Jennifer made it easy on me and we settled my case fairly quick. I am pleased with the services I received from Jennifer.

Clayton | Clearwater, FL

I was arrested at a bar and charged with drunk and disorderly and resisting arrest. A lot of my friends were there and we were all in shock at what had happened. The following day I had a consultation with Mr. Rivera and hired him for my case. He got started on the case the very next day stayed in contact about the case. Within a week he acquired the video surveillance from the establishment. Shortly after that I received a phone call from him letting me know that all of my charges were dropped. I would strongly recommend Mr. Rivera to anyone in a similar situation or worse. I am very grateful for your hard work on my case. I couldn't have had a better outcome.

Justin | New Port Richey, FL

Casey has helped me with 2 different cases over a few year period. He always answers my calls immediately or calls me right back. I never have to talk to a paralegal or assistant. He personally answers and handles my needs and always makes me feel important. He is extremely thorough. Both cases were handled with little work on my part and both has favorable results. That is because Casey has years of experience and knowledge and that is why I trust him 100%.

Melissa | Bradenton, FL

Daviana went above and beyond when It came to handling my case. She answered every call and question I had in a timely and professional manner.

Daviana is a hard working and dedicated lawyer who really took a personal interest in my case and always put my mind to ease after our conversations. She really cares about her clients and works hard to represent their best interest. If you want a tough, intelligent and caring lawyer who can control a court room daviana is the lawyer for you. I would hire Daviana again in a second if I ever found myself in need of legal aid in the future.
