“A courtroom is not a place where truth and innocence inevitably triumph; it is only an arena where contending lawyers fight not for justice, but to win.”

Clarence Darrow

Our Commitment To You

We built our firm on the principle that we do not assume our clients are innocent. We know they are. We fight every single case that comes to us with that knowledge behind us. Every one of our clients deserves their freedom. No one will fight as hard as the person who knows what is at stake.

You deserve an attorney who will fight for you the way you deserve. The law is complex, and it is against you in many ways. We will put you on even ground and not give an inch in your defense.

Dedicated, knowledgeable defense in Clearwater Florida

I am beyond thankful to Mr. Penton for all his help. I got in car accident back in May in which the other driver was at fault. I had no idea dealing with Allstate (the other driver’s insurance company) would be such a headache.

I will recommend this legal defense team to everyone I know! Emmanuel Penton is not only an exceptional lawyer but a honest and compassionate human. He was honest, clear and upfront about everything I should expect.

I had a 17 year old warrant that stopped me from getting a great job here in my state. Ten states away Manny Penton, who very pleasant and knowledgeable to me on the telephone, solved my problem. And I didn’t even have to leave my state.
