TESTIMONIALS
Mr. Remillard worked for me for five plus years. He prepared me for two formal hearings and an interim investigative hearing. I went to an investigative hearing unrepresented and ended up with a three year mandatory withdrawal of my application. The specifications were for a lack of candor, financial irresponsibility and issues with the IRS. Mr. Remillard represented me when nobody else would and had he not spent so much time preparing me for the final formal hearing I would of not of been admitted at all, ever to the Florida Bar...RR
I was arrested for a very serious DUI. I hired Mr. Remillard to help me with my application because of these criminal charges. He worked with me and helped draft the most important explanations i.e. criminal matters and believe it or not I was admitted without having to go to a hearing. All though I was resigned to a thought of a hearing and based on Mr. Remillard's experience with his help I avoided the investigative hearing which from I have been told is one of the worse experiences you will ever endure.CM
I hired Mr. Remillard after going to an investigative hearing and receiving a mandatory three year withdrawal. This withdrawal period required me to admit all of the allegations which was set out which is called specifications. My issues were substantial financial irresponsibility from credit cards t student loans. Mr. Remillard and his staff walked me through the three year rehabilitation process and believe it or not instead of a formal hearing I was actually admitted after the board reviewed my detailed rehabilitation package...ML
After spending seven years in prison, I received my undergraduate degree and applied for the bar and passed the bar. Everyone I talked to said it was just a waste of time but I was determined to give it my best. I was introduced to Mr. Remillard by the Lawyer that handle my criminal matters. My criminal matters began when I was thirteen years old and extended through my late teens and I would say between misdemeanors and felonies there must have been twenty convictions...JW
Hiring Mr. Remillard to represent me in a Formal Hearing was the best thing I could of ever done. He spent may face hours with me and on the phone. When I turned in my application to Barry Law school, I was dishonest on my application in reference to the insitutional discipline question. Because of my candor and misdemeanors, I was worried I would not be able to practice in Florida as an Attorney. Mr. Remillard's hard word, dedication and professionalism, the week after my hearing I was advised by the Florida Bar that I was able to take the oath and become an attorney in the state of Florida.RF
I retained Mr. Remillard at the start of Law School after he gave a lecture on the application process. My application was very complicated concerning very sensitive medical issues. They were so sensitive to me that I could literally not put pen to paper to try and explain them. Mr. Remillard drafted the necessary answers and even spoke with some of my medical providers and held my hand through the entire process. Due to the complicated nature of my application, it took me much longer to be processed...RW
