I am not sure where to begin as my emotions overwhelm me..... Donny you have believed in me since day 1 and for that I am eternally grateful!!! You represented me first in 2015 and helped walk me through my v.o.p. by giving me guidance and helping pick me back up to get on the right track. With your persistence and my willingness you were able to keep me out of jail and I got my probation terminated early. That is where my relationship started with you and I did well for a while, but it wasn't long before my addiction consumed me again and caught 12 more charges!!!! I came to your office completely broken and extremely intoxicated and cried and begged for your help. You just observed my physical and mental state and said " Melanie you lost the fire in your eyes". You reluctantly agreed to represent me. My bond got revoked due to my erratic behavior and I ended up in jail on all 12 theft related charges. As I sat there facing prison time in a state of such despair and depression, you began fighting for my life when I had given up! You came to visit me in jail and offer me words of encouragement. You fought so intensely to get me into drug court, even though I had no drug charges. God willing, that's when I got sentenced to 7 months, inpatient rehab (West Care). You assured me this was the best choice that I could make for my life and were right. I surrendered and committed my whole being to a new way of life. Now I sit here a changed woman, someone that is confident, walks with integrity and humility, and strong through my faith in God. I just celebrated 1 year COMPLETELY clean and sober!!! I can be a mother, daughter, and girlfriend to my family!! Donny you are no longer just my lawyer, I have developed a personal relationship through this journey and look to you as a friend and role model. I thank you so very much for being so passionate when it comes to your career, which allows you to provide excellence as a defense attorney!!! I am so happy I choose you to represent me!!!

Donnie is the best at what he does he goes above and beyond.He was there the next day in the court room going to work for me.He takes time to talk to you and break everything down so you understand if you don't know all of the process that will happen.He was always there if you have questions about anything going on and even called me on his own time just to make sure I was doing ok. To say that Mr. Kilfin is a life saver is an understatement. He is the best in Pinellas and has been able to give me my life back.

I’ve struggled with drug addiction for a while now and been in and out of jail. Recently I was arrested and looking at some time in prison, but Donnie helped me going above and beyond by giving me the option instead of prison going to a drug rehab. He was with me every step of the way. In court and threw the program he never left my side or even stop having faith in me where everyone close to has given up. Now I have successfully completed the program, involved in a 12 step program and starting school in January. I really owe it all to him cause I could of went to prison been let out and probably went right back to what I was doing before. So again thank Donnie you truly saved my life and helped me see that there was more to living than what I was so used to.

If you need the best lawyer possible, call attorney Donny Kilfin. I found myself needing a lawyer at 4:30pm on a Friday and Donny personally answered the call himself. I've been dealing with a felony case for over 20 years and thought I would never be totally free from this mistake. Donny reviewed my case and did his due diligence. This man is a wealth of knowledge and truly cares about his clients. His communication is beyond expectation, you know at all times what is going on with your case and the expected approach he will take. Donny is the guy you want on your side. His commitment, tenacity and experience is off the charts. Thank you Donny, my family and I will always be indebted to you.

Additional Advantageous Reasons for Hiring Attorney Donald Kilfin, Esq. No professionally honest attorney can guarantee that your issues will have positive results, but Attorney Donald Kilfin, Esq. does guarantee that he will do everything in his power to provide you with the results that you desire. In order to accomplish his client’s goals, he spends approximately 10 hours a day almost every day and he works on weekends researching his client’s issues. He also answers his phone on weekends, if he is unavailable at the time you call, leave Donnie a message and he will return your call soon as he can. Donnie likes to divide and conquer; when possible he will present one issue at a time to the Court (by not asking for too much at onetime it makes it simpler for the Court to provide the desired outcome). He has no problem with returning to the Court as many times as your issues require without charging you any additional fees. Going to Court with Donnie is as easy as spreading warm butter on hot toast. He will orally present the contents of the written motion to the Court and answer most questions for the Court. If the Court asks you any questions they usually will be few, short and easy questions. Before you know it, your time in front of the Judge will be history. Donnie has been at bat in the Court for me three times so far. Each time he has hit a home run for me. One of those times he saved an amount of money that was equal to about 6 times his fee. Another time he accomplished something that to our knowledge and the local Florida State officials’ knowledge has never been done before. Additionally Donnie was able to convince a determined probation officer not to file a VOP on me. Donnie cannot promise you similar results, but he can promise you he will do everything in his power to help you receive the results that you desire. I have given Donnie permission to discuss the details of above results with his clients. Please see my April 26, 2017 testimonial Make Choosing Attorney Donald Kilfin Esq. Your #1 Priority. ... ”

If you are looking for and need an exceptional and effective attorney then you have arrived at the correct location. Donny is one of the few attorneys that place his client needs above almost everything else. On his firm’s website he states that “My Clients Are Always My #1 Priority – I go above and beyond to make sure my clients’ rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law.” And that he is “committed to providing the residents of St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, and surrounding areas with the highest quality of legal services, at affordable rates…” Those statements are not just words, but are actual reality. You’ll find no fake news or alternative facts here or on his website. Just pray that he is willing to take you on as a client. When I contacted a local well known attorney’s office, I was told by his office staff that there was nothing the attorney could (or would) do for me, not even granting me an office visit (I guess that was due to the nature of my alleged charges). Donny was open armed and he listen to what I had say, accepted me as a client, took the voluminous amount of papers that had I prepared for him and he read them all before our next meet meeting. Donny is always willing to listen to whatever you have to say. If you accidentally interrupt him, he will stop what he is saying and gently encourage you to speak your mind. He is willing to take your advice and act on possible alternative routes that might obtain results. As your attorney he’ll contact you and keep you informed and updated on your issues. Donny is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law with almost 20 years professional criminal law experience including a six-year career as a Pinellas County state prosecutor. He has received many citations and awards including being listed as in the TOP 100 TRIAL LAWYERS by THE NATIONAL TRIAL LAWYERS association. With his extensive knowledge, contacts, working relationships and friendships, he will serve you well as your attorney. I hope that you are fortunate enough (and smart enough to choose) to have Donald J. Kilfin, Esq. as your attorney.

Donny defended a family member of mine at trial. He was thorough with his trial preparation and it showed. His closing argument was outstanding. He was clear and persuasive. The jury quickly returned a not guilty verdict to a complicated case. I highly recommend him.

I would whole-heartedly recommend attorney Donald Kilfin to anyone who happens to find themselves in need of a criminal defense attorney. Being a former prosecutor gives him a unique perspective of how strong or weak the prosecution’s case is. Mr. Kilfin is so detail-oriented that he reviewed witness statements line-by-line for discrepancies and/or inconsistencies. Every piece of evidence was reviewed and analyzed to decide the best way to use it. He kept me informed step-by-step throughout the whole process. His hard work and research allowed him to know my case inside and out, and he was quick to point out inaccuracies and falsehoods in my ex-husband’s testimony. Mr. Kilfin looked and acted like a professional throughout the three day trial. His closing argument was everything a client could ask for: he covered every aspect that needed to be said, and he had the jury listening intently and even nodding agreement when he pointed out facts of the case that proved my innocence and resulted in a NOT guilty verdict due to self-defense. Watching Mr. Kilfin during the trial was amazing and anyone in need of help should definitely contact his office.
