What It Takes to Win 
Every case is different, and nobody should trust an attorney who promises a certain result. But not all law firms are created equal. Who you choose to represent you can be the difference between success and failure in the courtroom. 

A good attorney will know the law and skillfully apply it to your specific situation. But a great attorney will diligently pour over discovery and relentlessly research the law until he has formed the perfect legal argument. 

The attorneys at Pouget Law Offices have the knowledge, skill, and experience needed to win. More importantly, our attorneys have the constitution to faithfully devote themselves to your case and will not stop until they achieve the best possible resolution for you.  
What Our Clients Are Saying...


My case appeared to be a loss, but Mr. Pouget's tireless research uncovered case law that supported my position and ultimately got my punishment reduced to next-to-nothing. He had a way of explaining situations that answered my questions before I figured out how to ask them. He put in exponentially more work on my case than I expected, and he pushed tirelessly for the best possible result. Days before my scheduled trial, the prosecution was given a glimpse of the defense he had put together for me. Apparently the prosecutors were as impressed as I was, because they responded within minutes agreeing to the conditions we wanted. I am absolutely thrilled with his work, his communication, and the results he delivered. Beyond being a brilliant attorney, Mr. Pouget is friendly, warm, kind, funny and just a lovely person to be around. I'm absolutely grateful for the time and effort he gave my case, and I couldn't be more appreciative of his help. He is the brilliant kind of attorney you're hoping for when you're looking for help, and I'm confident you'll be as thrilled with him as I am. Thanks, Mr. Pouget!!!

The whole team was very easy to work with and easy to get a hold of. They were extremely knowledgeable and thorough and took the time to walk me through every aspect of the case, which ended up being dismissed! I felt very comfortable knowing I had his full support.


Hiring the right attorney is one of the biggest decisions you can make in your life . I would highly recommend this firm. They return your phone calls and are willing to go above and beyond to get the best outcome and an attorney who is very very knowledgeable of the law. It's hard to find a good attorney who keeps their word and returns your phone calls. When you're going through anything to do with the courts you need an attorney who is reliable, keeps their word, cares and reduces the stress of an already stressful situation. . I would very highly recommend this Law Firm.


The best DUI lawyers in southwestern Florida. I could not have asked for a better outcome. I absolute recommend him to anyone who has encountered a DUI, he will help you get the best case scenario NO MATTER WHAT!



I can't say enough good about everyone at this firm. They are some of the best people I have ever met. They are kind, courteous and they work so very hard. They treat you and your case like you are the only client and it doesn't stop at the office they take it home with them!! My case was a victory and I'm not surprised with the way they put their all in it!! I highly recommend them to everyone that needs a GREAT lawyer and law firm. Thank you all so very much for all you did for me!!


I was arrested and charged with felony drug possession. I was facing life changing events, a felony conviction, and a plea offer that would only cause more hardship on my family. Mr. Pouget and his team looked me in the eye and told me it was my choice to take a 24 month probation plea offer, or take it to trial and let them fight for what was right. I was confident enough to take that risk in everything that was put on the table. I am EXTREMELY HAPPY that I did! Mr. Pouget and Mr. Fowler were very thorough, confident, passionate, and relentless in the work that ultimately resulted in a positive outcome, and a QUICK NOT GUILTY verdict of all charges. The entire team was communicative and professional, and made sure I understood every aspect of what was going on in every situation. With all the intelligent insight and communication I learned a lot, and I was able to understand and make intelligent decisions to go on trial. I am truly blessed and honored to have my life back because of the hard work and dedication of this firm. There are not enough words to describe how I feel. These guys are the REAL DEAL. I highly recommend.

Looking for a qualified and competent law firm? Look no further. After a consultation over the phone, I moved forward with hiring his team to represent my son (a minor). James and his partner Andrew analyzed the case in depth in preparation to the potential trial, they took depositions, pressed the state attorney’s office for documentation which they dragged their feet with an ultimately were not able to produce but my team kept pressing and putting pressure on them. At the end of the day, the state dropped the charges against my son, and I tribute such decision to the aggressive nature of my representation in getting justice for my son and my family concerning the serious nature of the charges. My appreciation and gratitude go out to the entire team for their hard work, they always kept us informed on discovery and or any updates concerning the case via emails, phone calls.

Excellent. The entire team have been superb! From the initial meeting to my current status, they were communicative and offered several options at each point I needed to make a decision. They explained potential outcomes based on my decision and offered his advice. I would recommend his service to anyone.



I hired the firm for a traffic misdemeanor and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Case was dismissed and charges were dropped. His staff was great at communicating with me through the process and delivered exceptional service. Although I hope to not need his services again, I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him in the future!! Thank you so much for everything!!!
