When we meet with a client for the first time, it’s not uncommon for us to hand them a business card with our personal cell phone number on it. It can be shocking for a client to have that kind of access to us, but that’s the type of relationship they need. Accessibility is the best way to give them personal attention and straightforward solutions.

Client Testimonials

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.


My case was over last week and I’m still feeling the relief. It’s hard to imagine the emotional toll it takes on you both physically and mentally. I could have never gotten through it without you (attorney Hayslett). You talked me off the ledge too many times to mention. And as you predicted when we first met I wouldn’t be convicted or do one minute in jail. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.


Kevin was such a blessing, during my time of need. He was very kind, patient, and thorough in explaining the entire process.
I am extremely satisfied with the end result, and I highly recommend Kevin Hayslett to anyone in the Tampa Bay area!


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.
