I would highly recommend Heidi, this firm and all of its staff to represent anyone facing a legal challenge.
Recently a family member was arrested and I had to find an attorney. My first impression of this firm was very positive. When I first called the individual on the phone listened to my situation and told me she would put me through to someone who could help. Heidi Perlet , her firm, her legal assistant and other staff are second to none. They exhibit total professionalism and compassion in explaining the charges, what it means and what can be expected. They don't make promises or misrepresent anything, they only promise to do the very best job for you and put the work in to ensure that happens. It is refreshing to know that there are some in the legal profession that care and take their job seriously. This firm helped my family member get a second chance because they took the time to learn about his case and history so that they could present the best defense and that is priceless. I would highly recommend Heidi, and this firm and all of its staff to represent anyone facing a legal challenge. If you want a law firm that will look out for your best interest, this is the firm and these are the people that are amazing at what they do. I will never forget.Janet
They were always available to guide me through the legal process.
Heidi and Janine were efficient and provided the best professional service. From beginning to end, they were always available to guide me through the legal process. Thank you so much. I highly recommend Perlet & Shiner, P.A.Ashley Echarte
The entire firm was so supportive, professional, and friendly.
Heidi Perlet was the attorney that took on a case for a loved one that I wanted to help. The entire firm was so supportive, professional, and friendly - this meant everything to me since I live out of the state and could not be present for all of the meetings and court hearings that took place there. I always knew to expect a call a few days before a court appearance with briefing on the plans moving forward and would get a call the day after the appearance with a calm and succinct report of what happened and where we were headed next. Perlet & Shiner, P.A. were very upfront about cost in our case and let me know right away if there was going to be any additional costs outside of what we had established. As you can imagine this is one major source of stress that they work to minimize as best as they can. When Heidi Perlet met with the client and gathered the facts of the case she stated that she would see to it that they would not do jail time and the outcome of this case did NOT yield any jail time. If you find yourself or someone that you love in a situation where you need the services of a criminal attorney- Perlet & Shiner, P.A. is 100% who you should call. In fact, if you are reading this * Put their number in your phone just in case you need it!*Gretchen Bierenbaum

Heidi and her staff helped me tremendously.
Heidi and her staff helped me tremendously. I had a wrongful charge against me because of an exgirlfriend's alcoholism. They knew right away the best way to handle the situation. I didnt even have to make a court appearance. Unfortunately a lot of criminal defense attorneys will take your money and do nothing more than get you what a public defenders office will do for you. Sadly, justice is expensive in our society. That being said you're getting your money's worth with Heidi and her staff. Thanks again for all your help.James Sluzewski

Simply excellent.Jim Schwier
I felt like I had a defense lawyer.
Having to deal with a serious felony charge terrified me. I needed more than ambulance chasers to defend me. I interviewed three highly recommended, reputable law firms. I felt more comfortable with Marc Shiner. The initial interview lasted most of the afternoon - because Marc wanted to know everything about me - the facts of the charges were pretty clear. We also discussed strategies for a defense that would most likely be successful. I learned that he had defended others successfully with like charges. By the end of the interview, I felt like I had a defense lawyer, so I asked that he defend me. The case took months to resolve. Marc was generous with his time. The staff and the other lawyers in the firm - to say they acted professionally and caring would be an understatement. My emotions were never in a happy place - I was scared of prison time. Marc took all the time needed to reassure me that the case would turn-out well. When I witnessed how deferential the court officers and the judge were to Marc, then I felt I had a fighting chance. In the end, the prosecutor, who was hell-bent to putting me away, decided to drop the case. The charges were dropped. That happened last week. I'm still recovering from the shock.Terry Marsh
Paul Walsh was awesome to work with!
Paul Walsh was awesome to work with! Handled the case involving multiple charges and achieved the best possible outcome. He didn't penny pinch us on minor items and subsequent related advice. He was well worth the fees we paid!Donald Carter
Anyone would be foolish not to call.
Few weeks ago I was in a situation where I got arrested for Domestic Violence and Battery and was facing serious charges. Just like any regular person I had no idea who to turn to or hire. I found Mr Paul Walsh through the internet I read his reviews I liked what I read and set up a meeting. The consultation was free. He gave me 100% attention, he was professional and understanding. Mr Walsh is very knowledgeable with the Law from both sides he was a prosecutor as well. His fee was reasonable, I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation, he is very committed and always a phone call away. Mr. Walsh was able to get me back to my Home within a few days and right after that he got the case dismissed before even court hearing date. Mr. Walsh is the best and most effective lawyer I have ever hired. He gives 110 percent and with a very good outcome. Anyone would be foolish not to call him, he knows the law and how to defend your love one. Thank you, Mr. T E.Tahar Elotmani
I love his honesty and I appreciate how he breaks down the process.

I had never been arrested before and the entire process was beyond scary. When I met Rob Melchiorre during the initial consultation, I immediately knew I was in good hands. I was right.

Mi experiencia con el señor Shiner fue excelente.
Mi experiencia con el señor Shiner fue excelente. Mi hijo había sido arrestado por cargos muy graves en el condado de Palm Beach y contratamos al señor Shiner.Estudió el caso de mi hijo, fue amable, respetuoso y solidario hacia nosotros. En la oficina nos ayudó mucho la Señorita Merchi ya que habla perfecto español y nos explicaba todo. El señor Shiner solucionó todos los problemas que otros abogados no podían resolver. Fue muy dura la lucha, su trabajo en la corte era implacable. Para cada nuevo problema, él encontraba una solución. Luchó en la corte con gran experiencia y sabiduría. El señor Shiner es, sin duda, el mejor abogado, si ustedes tienen necesidad de que se defiendan sus derechos, les recomiendo que lo contraten, fue el dinero mejor invertido en toda mi vida. Señor Shiner: Gracias por el trabajo que realiza para la humanidad, para esas personas que, como nosotros, han caído en desgracia. Gracias Gracias Gracias.Filomena Marcelli
I thought my case was impossible to beat but we succeeded thanks to him and his staff!
Marc Shiner made my life so much easier and understood my case well and was very thorough. I was highly recommended to him and once I called his office he personally called me within 5 minutes and he saw me the same day to review my case. He told me from the beginning what would most likely happen to my charges/case and he was absolutely right! I was always informed and updated by him personally or by his assistant. I never felt judged by him or any of the staff regarding details in my case and it was taken serious and remained professional. I'm very happy I hired him to be my attorney. He saved me a lot of stress and time and was worth every penny. If I ever needed an attorney in the future, he would be the one to call. I thought my case was impossible to beat but we succeeded thanks to him and his staff!Brittney
We owe our life to Mr. Shiner.

I would suggest him to anyone that is in need of the best criminal lawyer.
My experience with Marc Shiner has much more than exceeded my expectations. When I first called I was nervous didn't know what to say or do. Calling on a Sunday night I expected a call the next morning; I got a response within 10 minutes on Sunday night from Mr. Shiner his self and was able to schedule a visit. He was very upfront about the possibilities and the cost of an attorney. In my opinion I received a fair price for the more than satisfying results I received. When I arrived the staff was very welcoming and made me feel at home. Mr. Shiner had already reviewed my report and got the opinions of other attorneys regarding my case. Since the first visit I felt more than positive in my selection. I was told it could last 6 months to a year, my case was done in less than two months. He did exactly what he said he would do since the first day , no sugar coating. He is a more than pleasurable man to work with and has restored hope for me and my family. I was told he is the best in criminal cases, and my results proved it. I would suggest him to anyone that is in need of the best criminal lawyer.Greter

Innocent people need attorneys too. Thank you Heidi.
I was faced with false allegations. I was referred to Heidi Perlet. She saved my life. I cannot say enough about the thoroughness of her work for me and her actions restore my reputation, my career and my family. I would suggest that anyone facing criminal charges put themselves in the capable hand of Mrs. Perlet. She was relentless in her efforts to expose the truth, arrange the facts concisely and get the information to the correct people. Her standing in the legal system was evident as she put me at ease and logically progressed through the steps. The result was that no charges were filed against me. I would recommend her to anyone who needs professional guidance through what could be a life changing event. She will protect you every step of the way. Innocent people need attorneys too. Thank you Heidi.Jet Stevens
They were there for me 24/7.
I met with 3 other law firms to work on my case and wasn’t satisfied. Marc Shiner and Alan Saladrigas made me comfortable from the start and ensured that I was treated fairly from start to finish. They were there for me 24/7, in the courtroom, in jail, wherever and whenever help was needed.Alex Lagos

Mr. Shiner and Ms. Perlet arrived in court FULLY prepared.
Marc and Heidi defended me in a case of Battery on a Police Officer and Resisting with Violence. With 3 sworn officers willing to testify that they witnessed both felonies, the case did not look good for us and I was facing up to 10 years in prison. While Perlet-Shiner negotiated a deal that would have seen all charges dropped, with no admission of guilt, I made their jobs that much more difficult by demanding the chance to clear my name and reputation in Court. Even after more than two years, Mr. Shiner and Ms. Perlet arrived in court FULLY prepared. Their grasp of the events, their recollection of prior statements by the officers and their knowledge of the law were simply stellar. As a result of their meticulous preparation, the officers' stories were demonstrated to be contradictory to each other, to their arrest reports, to their depositions and to the facts. I was found Not Guilty of either felony; my reputation has been restored and the threat of prison has passed. I can recommend this firm as being passionate about the law, professional beyond expectation and deeply committed to their clients. If you find yourself behind the curve, with the full weight of the State bearing down on you, you simply could not ask for better representation than Perlet-Shiner.Rich Lucibella

Top-notch criminal defense firm.
Top-notch criminal defense firm with exceptional personal attention. I highly recommend Perlet, Shiner, Melchiorre & Walsh to anyone needing a top-notch criminal defense in the West Palm Beach / South-Florida area. If you are seeking the best legal advice available, you should consider this firm. Heidi Perlet and Rob Melchiorre have represented me successfully in three cases. I felt confident knowing that I had the best possible representation — that goes a long way toward alleviating some of the stress from what can be a very stressful situation. I consulted with several firms before I decided to go with Perlet, Shiner, Melchiorre & Walsh. I am extremely pleased with my decision both for the legal outcomes they obtained and for the exceptional people that I have had the pleasure to meet. Heidi and team always exhibited complete professionalism and compassion at each stage of the process. They were consistently approachable, professional, understanding, and personable. They were both honest and realistic in their assessment of the charges — and didn’t over-promise results — instead they worked hard and delivered them! Not a single unanswered call or email, no runaround explanations or hidden fees, just an amazing team. If you want a law firm that will truly look out for your best interest, this is the firm and these are the people that are amazing at what they do. I would highly recommend Heidi, Rob, this firm, and all of its staff. I am truly grateful for everything they’ve done. Consider this my sincere “Thank You” and commendation. Simply put, if you require the services of a top-notch defense attorney in South Florida, your first call should be to Perlet, Shiner, Melchiorre & Walsh.Mark Knight

Rob Melchiorre is nothing less than professional. From the moment we met, he treated me and my husband with respect and understanding to what we were going through. He helped us prevail during our time of need and for that I am so grateful for everything he has done for me and my family.Kerry Janis
Heidi made me feel at ease.
When I found myself in a bit of trouble I was referred to Heidi Perlet. She was extremely patient with me and took the time to go over every aspect of my case with me. The whole process was very scary, but Heidi made me feel at ease. From the time I walked into the office, the staff was great. By my second time there I knew them all by name, and everyone treated me like a human being and not like a criminal. Heidi's hard work paid off, and she was able to get my case dropped. I owe Heidi my life! I wouldn't recommend anyone else!John Constantine
You got me the best outcome.
Thank you Paul for helping me when I needed it most. You got me the best outcome I could have hoped for and I am eternally grateful. These attorneys are the best and I recommend them to anyone in West Palm Beach who faces criminal charges.John Zigler
It's definitely better than going to jail.
I will give the entire accounting of my experience and why after I finish with my probation. Just finished my 9th probation meeting and am eligible for early termination. Now it's up to Rob Melchiorre to ask the judge for early termination. If Rob does his job and the judge gives the okay, I will be finished. If not, I have 3 more meetings with my probation officer. Hopefully Rob does his job as I paid him $10,000.00 dollars to do it right. This time, we shall see what happens. He was a prosecuting DA and knows all the loop holes. It's definitely better than going to jail !! On another note, Marc Shiner is one of the best attorneys I have ever run across. If you are ever looking for an attorney who know's the 'playing field' Perlet Shiner Melchiorre & Walsh are the absolute best team to have on your side. They are indeed a 5 star team and I highly recommend them! good luck and good fortune to one and all.Robert Henick
I highly recommend this lawfirm to anyone.
It’s the phone call everyone dreads. The 3 a.m. wakeup call. You wake up startled, and then you hear this, “Ma’am, this is the Sheriff's department. We have your husband in custody, for trafficking in drugs. He’s facing 65 years. You need to get a lawyer.” My wife, frantic, desperately, with all her soul, cries out a silent prayer to God, asking for help to find a lawyer. She pages through the phone book, and finds Heidi Perlet, and gives her a call at 3:15 a.m. Heidi professionally answers, and talks and counsels my wife for 30 minutes, along with her co-counsel, and husband, Mark. After bonding out of jail, I met with Heidi, and told her all the circumstances of the case against me. She formulated a plan, and I followed it. When you hire a lawyer, you also need one with professionalism, and long standing relationships with prosecutors and the district attorneys, so you can balance what they want, with what you want. That relationship only comes from experience, and an ability to tacitly negotiate and work, with those with an adversarial position against you. How good is she? Hire her, and you may get the phone call you will always remember and cherish. I did. And it happened at 3:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon. It’s from Heidi. “Hello—you aren’t going to serve a day in jail. I promise you. They are going to drop the trafficking charges. The case is over. You need to go to pre-trial supervision for 60 days, which is handled by the probation department. Be good for 60 days, and the last charge is dropped. And then we can expunge the case as though it never happened.” After saying to Heidi “thank you, and I love you” I hung up the phone, and softly cried. And then I called my wife, who now got the good phone call I just got. What happened to those other individuals, in this case? They got sentenced to 35 years, 10 years and 5 years. I got no bars, no jail, no time, no hell. Which do you want?David E

I will forever be eternally grateful for all they have done for me.
Getting in trouble with the law is something none of us anticipates will happen to them, but it can and indeed, does happen. How do you evaluate a good attorney? This is something most of us for good reason have little experience with, but if you're reading this review and researching the law firm of Perlet and Shiner, just know you have stumbled upon one of the best firms your money can buy. I had no idea how hard someone would fight for me until I stepped into their office and spoke with Marc Shiner. Thanks to his tremendous skill and experience, he was able to mitigate what would have been truly disastrous charges and got me the best outcome possible. Now I actually have a future and I owe it all to him, words can't describe how appreciative I am. I didn't work with any of the other attorneys in his firm, and there are only five, but I'm sure based on the quality of representation I received that all of them are excellent. So when you weigh the risks of future lost earnings, tarnished reputation and loss of liberty that can be the outcome of having a lawyer who doesn't care about you and doesn't fight as hard as possible for you, take it on my word and the words of the other reviews that Marc's firm is indeed worthy of your trust. Please consider them if you're ever in a situation like I was. I will forever be eternally grateful for all they have done for me.Preston
