Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer
Foreword From John P. Contini:
I defend the criminally accused in not only South Florida, but also in State and Federal courts across the country ie, often in other States outside of Florida upon permission of local judges.
Few experiences in life are more rewarding than those occasions when we, as criminal defense lawyers, are successful in helping our clients receive second chances. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you’ve been used instrumentally in the process of reuniting families and assisting them as we secure the right treatment, rehabilitation and help they desperately need.
Thank you profusely, for sending any of your frightened or hurting family members and friends my way. It is an absolute honor to help these families. From my heart to yours, I am,
Grateful for this privileged opportunity,
- John Contini

“I endorse this lawyer. John is compassionate and has tremendous trial experience. He always fights for his clients and gets great results. He is an well experienced. He is also an acclaimed author of legal thrillers. I recommend his trial skills and also recommend his literary skills. He is an extremely articulate attorney.” – Eric Schwartzreich, Criminal Defense Attorney in Fort Lauderdale, FL
“It’s not often you find a lawyer like John. He is honest and full of integrity — and most importantly he is willing to fight for his clients. I had the privilege of working with John on a matter, and not only did I learn a lot about the law, I also learned a lot about myself. John helped me grow as an attorney, and as a person.” – Abed Ayoub, Immigration Attorney in Washington, DC
“John has a real talent for writing. The book Danger Road has had a BIG impact on many lives. I personally know many men in prison as a minister behind the walls and razor wire of state prison. He has a hart for Jesus Christ and from our many conversations wants to reach as many men as possible with a message of redemption. I also know John to have a real HART of compassion. If I were in trouble in a legal sense he would be my first phone call as his competence and understanding of the law is unmatched.
“John is a committed attorney who pours his heart and soul into his clients and their representation, looking past the charges filed and a person’s past, and tries to truly reach inside and touch them. John is driven to find the best in everyone and to try and take what may be a wayward person and point them in the right direction, even when their outlook may not be bright. John is truly a unique and special attorney and person.
“I highly recommend Mr. Contini to be of a service to you, your loved ones and friends. He is very personable, knowledgeable and always committed to achieve the best results to his clients.
“It is my honor to recommend John Contini both as an incredible human being and a great lawyer. I have known John for the past ten years and have observed him in a variety of settings. I know several people that John has helped over the years and can speak to his compassion, ability and tenacity. As a defense attorney he is without equal. John understands the law and really believes the principle that his client is “innocent until proven guilty” even when others have already prejudged them. John’s compassion and grace in tense and difficult situations has a calming effect and helps to assure his clients that he really is their advocate and is doing his very best to right a wrong. While many lawyers (and general public!) believe “where there is smoke there is fire,” John knows that’s often a “smoke screen” meant to divert attention from the real truth! In short, if you need a lawyer, you need John Contini on your side.
Several times, John has spoken at Community Bible Church in Dania Beach where I Pastor. Why would I invite a Criminal Defense Attorney as a speaker? Simply, John is a Christian first and that impacts everything he does whether it is in his role as attorney, author or father (which he is his favorite role, just ask him!). Many today claim to be people of faith but they filter that faith through all that they do instead of the other way around. John is different. He filters everything he does through his faith and applies those principles unashamedly.
I consider John Contini to be a friend, advisor and a teacher. I recommend him without hesitation or apprehension. If you need a friend or an advocate you can be assured that John will be by your side.
