Mr. Kaufman is one of the best attorneys, if not the best, that Key West has to offer. I would highly recommend his office. The results were to my advantage in the cases he handled.

Landlord-Tenant Dispute

A short vacation trip to the Keys resulted in my arrest during a traffic stop along with a subsequent prosecution by the State Attorney office of the 16th judicial circuit. I am from out of state and knew nothing of the laws in Florida let alone a competent attorney to assist me in the matter. I quickly asked around and was referred to Sam Kaufman by a local who had knowledge of him and his abilities and let me just say, that was the best referral...

Excellent Lawyer, makes you feel at ease

Handled negotiation, mediation, escrow in a landlord-tenant dispute to a very successful conclusion for me.
Also reviewed upcoming jury trial case with an attorney representing me as plaintiff, with possible goal of assisting in the upcoming litigation as co-counsel. Exceptional input.

Excellent from Start to Finish

I hired Sam Kaufman and his team to handle a case for us as we live quite far from Key West. They were excellent from start to finish and ensured we only had to go to Key West right before the trial, instead of making several appearances. Sam and Michael were our defense attorneys and they did an excellent job advising and representing us through a difficult that was ultimately dismissed 2 days before trial. The secretaries were always friendly and helpful as well. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone, especially those who need Key West attorneys to represent them when they cannot personally be present for court cases.
