Matthew Kindel

  • Profile

Attorney Matthew Kindel has been representing persons in criminal cases for over 11 years. As a former prosecutor in Polk County, FL, Mr. Kindel is adept at dealing with hardline prosecutors. For the last five years, Mr. Kindel was an attorney with another, local prominent defense firm, where he represented high profile criminal clients in Pasco and Hernando counties. He leaves no stone unturned. Attorney Kindel believes that early intervention in a criminal case by an experienced defense attorney can make the difference between a client being convicted, and no charges ever being filed. Once an individual is arrested, evidence not collected by law enforcement begins to disappear or gets destroyed—surveillance footage, witnesses, DNA, etc. In order to properly develop a defense and advise a client regarding difficult choices, the client must have all information available in order to make the best decision. Mr. Kindel travels to seminars across the country to keep abreast of the latest tools and trends in forensic science to defends his clients. Attorney Kindel regularly employs experts in his cases to contradict the state’s evidence or to mitigate the client’s sentence. He even employs the same methods as law enforcement by actively seeking subpoenas to exonerate his clients. Most commonly, Mr. Kindel represents individuals charged with DUI, DWLSR, drug possession, child abuse and battery.

Whether it’s a traffic ticket, drug case or a crime against a child, no case is too big or too small to defend. His expertise and zealousness are sought after by various organizations. He is the most reviewed attorney on AVVO that practices in Pasco County, full time, with 119 five star reviews.

Mr. Kindel specializes in representing teachers investigated and charged with abuse in the course of their employment, and is a contract attorney with the United School Employees of Pasco, or USEP. The Fraternal Order of Police, or FOP, in Pasco turn to Mr. Kindel as one of the their attorneys to represent police officers in “officer-involved” shooting cases that have resulted in the death of a suspect. The United States Concealed Carry Association calls upon Attorney Kindel when its members are involved in self-defense shootings. He makes himself available to all his clients by providing his cell phone and email address.
