Communities Served

I'm not quite sure why I have a page entitled "communities served".  Once again, this page is mostly just something that my web people think is important.  I see their point.  People want to know an answer to the deceptively simple question: "Where Do I Practice?"

The answer is, "that depends on your case."

For new criminal cases and violations of probation, I only defend cases out of Orange County, Seminole County, and Osceola County.  My office is right next to the Orange County Courthouse, and its only a short drive to either Seminole or Osceola County.  I've been practicing criminal defense in Central Florida since 1993, so I am most familiar with these three counties (more importantly, with these judges).  When it comes to a violation of probation, for example, it is especially important to know the judge you're dealing with.  As such, I don't like to take cases outside of Central Florida. 

That being said, if you're wanting to seal or expunge a criminal record, I handle these sorts of cases all over Florida. The bulk of the work on a seal or expunge happens long before any court date is ever set.  At most, a seal & expunge requires but one court appearance, so I'm willing to do this pretty much anywhere in the state.  
Client Reviews
"I can not express better my gratitude to John Guidry. His customer service exceeded my expectations. He always listened to my needs and my case and he explained in details every options I have and the steps to take. He maintained full communication with me and answered to my calls in less than five minutes. It was worth every single penny. I highly recommend this lawyer." J.P.
"I spoke to a couple of attorney's before speaking to John and I knew right away he was the attorney I would hire. He is very professional and a very caring individual. He is up front about the cost of service, with no surprises. I am in my late 50's and was never in trouble with the law and he made me feel very comfortable and reassured me of a positive outcome.....which it was. I highly recommend The Law Firm of John Guidry II." M.C.
"John Guidry worked closely with my family over a trivial matter. However, he treated it like it was the only case on his plate. He was kind, patient, professional, and just an excellent person to have on our side. While we reached out to him over a year ago, we are still constantly in contact with him. He makes sure there is no question left unanswered and personally reaches out to you himself whenever he possibly can. Very grateful for you, John!" K.P.
