Guy Fronstin, Esq., began his career in 1992 as an assistant state attorney in the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office. As a prosecutor, Guy handled misdemeanor, juvenile, and felony cases. After countless jury trials, he was appointed as a special prosecutor for state conflict cases. He later left the State Attorney’s Office to become a securities industry attorney for the National Association of Securities Dealers, known today as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
In private practice as a criminal defense attorney since 1996, Guy uses his wealth of insider experience in the criminal justice system to defend his clients in a wide range of cases involving DUI, Vehicular Manslaughter, Drug and Sex Crimes, Business and Economic Crimes, Murder, Insurance, Medical Fraud, Pain Pill Clinics, Child Pornography, and all other criminal matters from misdemeanors to felonies.
Guy has extensive experience training and lecturing, having conducted presentations on trial techniques and strategies at the State Attorney’s Office and many other legal and non-legal associations. He has also lectured before the civil litigation departments of numerous local and national law firms on “How to Know if the Federal Government is Behind the Scenes Monitoring the Civil Litigation for Possible Criminal Exposure.” Additionally, Guy has coached trial advocacy teams that have competed at the state and national levels.
Guy has been named a Florida Super Lawyer, which is a distinction limited to only 2.5 percent of eligible Florida lawyers. Florida Super Lawyers Magazine has a comprehensive selection process of only naming lawyers who have attained high peer recognition, met ethical standards, and demonstrated outstanding achievement in their field.
He has been featured on numerous local and national television networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX, and on shows such as “Good Morning America,” “America’s Most Wanted”, and “Snapped.” He has also co-counseled many cases with prominent criminal defense attorneys such as Alan Dershowitz, Roy Black, and Ken Starr. For example, he was on the defense team with Black defending John Goodman, owner of the International Polo Club, for vehicular manslaughter.
Dershowitz, who is also a world-renowned Harvard Law professor and scholar, had these words to say during a presentation at an Anti-Defamation League Awards dinner honoring Guy with the Jurisprudence Award: “I have had the pleasure of working with Guy on cases and he is a brilliant strategist. Guy, congratulations on this much-deserved award.”
Guy has been nationally recognized for his defense of: the late Wall Street billionaire Jeff Epstein, who was arrested for sexual battery; Rod Stewart; Tim Schnellenberger, son of National College Football Championship coach Howard Schnellenberger; former National Football League player David Boston, who was arrested for false imprisonment; and Stewart Gorenberg, whose wife, Randi Gorenberg, was murdered after shopping at Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. Guy also provided victim representation to 67 victims of Bernie Madoff; and representation to Michael Dippolito, whose wife, Dalia Dippolito, was convicted in a nationally televised murder-for-hire plot against him.
