Speedy, Conscientious, and Caring.
Never having to experience any immediate and concerning legal issues in the past, I was fortunate to find my attorney. She made me feel instantly at ease with my situation as she was extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful. Her attentive nature and swift actions made my case as painless as can possibly be, allowing the experience to now be a thing of the past. The comfort in knowing that there are lawyers like her out there who are ready to fight for you, and do so with honesty and integrity has me know that she will always be my family’s “go to” lawyer in times of need.

Marlyse has a total understanding of the laws as they apply, she has always done what she said she would do, and has kept me informed of the process and progress whenever needed.

Finding the right Defense
I have used Criminal Defense Clinic’s legal services. I live in Palm Beach County Florida. They came highly recommended by people in the community. They undoubtedly helped me with a very sensitive legal matter. Their professionalism, intelligence and knowledge guided me through my situation. I highly recommend using Criminal Defense Clinics, everything they commit to, they delivers. I would advise hiring them when in legal need. Wonderful experience and a very rewarding outcome.

Simply the best out there!
Simply the best out there! I had heard about Criminal Defense Clinics through a number of people in the Boca Raton area, so when a friend of mine got into a little bit of trouble and reached out to me for help, I immediately thought of them. My friend was a newbie to the legal system and was scared out her mind and afraid to talk to any attorneys! I finally convinced her to meet with Criminal Defense Clinics and she retained them on the spot! Their caring, compassion and understanding were exactly what my friend needed to get her through this difficult situation. Thankfully, her attorney was able to get the charges dropped and was even able to expunge the record so that there wasn’t even a record of her arrest at all! Gone completely!! Now she doesn’t have to worry about leasing an apartment or applying for a job. This Firm worked miracles!!

Guy is an amazing attorney. At every juncture where it was uncertain what would happen going forward, Guy got me the best possible option for my case. There was never a problem he didn’t solve or an angle that he missed to put me in the best situation possible given the realities of my case. He is an attorney of the highest skill and caliber and I wouldn’t trust anyone else to defend my interests in court.

I have known Guy Fronstin more than 20 years since we were both at the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office as young lawyers. I can unequivocally recommend him for representation of Florida criminal cases. He is well versed in the law and well-liked by his peers and respected in the legal community. Over the years I have referred him criminal defense clients who have been very happy with his services. Great guy – excellent lawyer.

— John

Thank god for Marlyse and her team. They made me feel calm and in charge of my outcome. She got me a reckless driving on a tough case that involved a lot time and commitment. She was always a text message away and helped settle my nerves during the almost two-year battle with the courts. I am so glad I chose her!

I was remodeling my house and my contractor was arrested for a felony unrelated to my house. I paid the contractor a large sum of money and he already started the job. I needed him released and back on the job as he was already in jail for one month and my project was being held up. I called Guy Fronstin because a friend recommended him. Within a few days, my contractor was released. I never had to deal with this type of situation and I am grateful for Guy Fronstin, he handled everything very quickly.

— Jennifer

Marlyse was there from the beginning to the end and got me the result I believe no other lawyer could. All I had to do is sit back and her firm did all the work. There was zero stress on my part and again the end result was exactly what I wanted.

— Peter

I have found him to be incredibly responsive to my clients’ needs, including one situation where I left a message on behalf of a client at 2 AM. The client’s child was having an arraignment hearing at 9 AM the next day. Guy was at the hearing and the client and family received incredible legal advice on less than seven hours notice – AMAZING !!

— Fellow Attorney

Marlyse worked to defend my son in a DUI case. Prior to this, my son had no offenses and was a hard-working college student. She worked to get his charge reduced to reckless driving and have him placed in the diversion program. Her efforts kept the DUI off his record and avoided any ramifications it may have had on his future.

— Kathryn

Great defense attorney. My son was in trouble and another attorney messed up his case. He was in jail and Guy Fronstin had him released on good behavior. I highly recommend Guy and his staff. I will always be grateful for giving my son another chance at life.

— Kate

I was referred to Ms. Mercado who did an amazing job. She took care of all my issues answered all of my questions and concerns. She was constantly in communication with me and always kept me informed. I must say although it was an unfortunate event I could have not asked for better representation. She embodies complete professionalism and is amazing at what she does.

— Gelson

I needed an attorney for my son recently. My son had never been in trouble before and is in the process of applying to college. Several people recommended Guy Fronstin. Guy did a great job for my son and we were are now able to try and have his record expunged, so that the colleges do not see that my son was arrested

— Lauren

I consider myself lucky to have had Marlyse representing me during such a hard time. She was accessible after hours, and offered her support during a very difficult family matter. Although the emotional support was much needed, she by far exceeded herself in her representation. She had my charges dropped which is allowing me to focus my energy on the family issue that resulted in my needing her representation.

— Lisa

Guy Fronstin and his staff are simply the “best and better than all the rest!“. Within twenty of being advised of my situation Guy had his associate at my home to deal with Boca Raton PD, PBSO and the AG’S office. Guy and his staff have remained accessible to me at all times and successfully obtained the most favorable outcome anyone in my situation could have asked for! The only call anyone in need of criminal defense should be is to The Law Offices of Guy Fronstin…

— Scott

I recommended Guy Fronstin to a friend recently. My friend was looking at jail time. Guy really did an amazing job and negotiated a probation for my friend. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Guy Fronstin.

Best Criminal Attorney in Palm Beach County!

Marlyse Mercado is the best attorney in Palm beach County trust me from the start when I made the initial call for my criminal case she took the time to explain to me about my case and what’s best for me and how she was gonna strategize and get me the best deal. She works hard for all her clients and she answers any and all questions I ever had. If I ever had a question I called or email and she was right there to ease my mind trust me if you want a lawyer that works hard just for you don’t hesitate to call her you won’t regret it. She got my case dismissed I personally will have her number programed in my phone and will recommend her to all my friends and family and anyone that needs a lawyer.

— Ernesto

Most Wonderful Attorney!

I can’t say how grateful I am to have had Ms. Mercado along my side these last eight difficult months. She has been more than helpful and kind to me. I had never been in trouble before and was confused and overwhelmed with everything going on and Ms. Mercado was there for me every step of the way and helped clarify any questions I or my family had. She was very easy to contact and always got back to me as soon as possible. I really can’t express how grateful my family and I are too her. Definitely recommend her to anyone who needs an attorney because she’s the best !

— Kaitlyn

Misdemeanor Case

Marlyse Mercado was referred to me by a well respected lawyer in South Florida. During my time with Marlyse, she was very professional and comforting during this unfortunate time. She was very quick to find a favorable solution which then led to the case dismissal a little over a month after the incident. I highly recommend working with Marlyse if you are ever in need of legal representation.


— Anonymous

Highly Recommend!

Ms. Mercado was very thorough and attentive. Her response to my calls and emails were in a timely manner and my case was resolved favorably.

— Yolanda

Excellent Services! 

Ms. Mercado provided exception service. From start to finish, she kept me up to speed (no pun intended) and got me the outcome I was hoping for. I recommend her services.

— Tyler

Ms. Mercado recently assisted me sorting out a legal issue and I have nothing but positive things to say about her and her colleagues. They kept me informed throughout the entire process and most importantly achieved the end result I was looking for. I’d recommend Ms. Mercado as an excellent lawyer Thanks again
