Chad Piotrowski Law is located in downtown Coral Gables, Florida. Miami criminal defense attorney Chad Piotrowski runs one of the area’s most unassuming law firms.
As former Assistant State Attorney for the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, Chad’s impressive background prosecuting some of the state’s toughest criminals makes him a tough act to follow. From first-time misdemeanor offenses to felony crimes designated to Repeat Offender Court (ROC), Chad taps his extensive criminal defense knowledge, and asserts the same degree of intensity and professionalism in every legal matter.
Chad began his legal career in Wilmington, Delaware by obtaining his J.D. from Widener University School of Law. Criminal defense came naturally, as evidenced by the Certificate of Achievement he was awarded for academic excellence in an advanced Criminal Procedure course. Chad landed a position with the Narcotics Unit of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, where he learned the ins and outs of litigation firsthand. This was just the start of what has proven to be a very promising criminal defense career.
Before settling into private practice, Chad quickly acquired the necessary tools to become an exceptional criminal defense attorney, as can be seen by the numerous positions he held throughout the years:
- Assistant State Attorney for the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, Miami-Dade County, Florida, under Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Felony Crimes, Juvenile Crimes, and Supervising Attorney in the Domestic Violence Unit.
- Federal Clerkship for the United States District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, for the Honorable Jacob P. Hart and the Honorable Linda K. Caracappa.

[There] aren’t that many people left in this world that give you[their] word and keep it. Chad genuinely cares about the problem at hand. Whether minute or something very serious you can sit back and relax, knowing you have the best representation available. I would recommend Chad to my family and friends.
(Jan 15, 2013) I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with Chad when we were both supervising attorneys within the Domestic Violence Unit at the State Attorney’s Office here in Miami-Dade County. We successfully tried numerous jury trials together, and I always look forward to the opportunity of working with him again on any matter. Chad is a phenomenal attorney whose training, experience, intelligence and trial skills are only matched by his commitment to excellence. He is very trustworthy, hard working, and always uses his experience to get positive results for his clients without fail. As such, Chad’s stellar reputation amongst the legal community is very well deserved.

(Jan 8, 2018) When i first contacted through email i was suprised and impressed that he was willing to call me to discuss the case at 10pm. He was honest and real reasonable priced and didnt use agressive sales and fear tactics like other lawyers use. He treated me fairly and not like a criminal. Was falsely arrested by miami dade narc cops for preworkout supplement that they claimed was opoids and 100% cbd hemp oil that they claimed is thc oil. Chad was agressive and moved quickly got this case dismised at the araignment for a reasonable price.

(Oct 26, 2017) I called Chad on a weekend for a free consult, he was at the park with his family, he was hired on the spot as we spoke. We researched him online extensively, read reviews etc. During the months of anxiety, Chad would call/text to explain anything or address concerns and try to calm my nerves. He doesn’t act/talk strict & binding. He’s very hands-on, experienced, knows his work, 110% trustworthy, very out-going, straight-forward tells you as it is, crack jokes, and actually keeps in communication, which is very important, because being informed helps you to understand everything as you go along. So, here you have a lawyer who is not only good at law but is a people’s person, not like some unpleasant, overpriced ones out there. We recommend Chad to ANYONE. If you’re in doubt or worried about something, trust HIM! He was also very affordable and had a very convenient payment plan. CASE DISMISSED.
(Jan 8, 2017) Chad is an excellent attorney. As a working parent I was not able to be at court to support my daughter while going through criminal charges. Chad was there every single time supporting my daughter by keeping her informed, by contacting her previous attorneys from out of State to reduce her case from criminal to civil. There are no words I can ever express to convey my gratitude.
Thank you Chad
(Jan 6, 2016) I had three trumped up felony charges over something that should have been a police warning at most and the prosecution really, really wanted to pin on me.
Chad went above and beyond both in how he treated me and how he handled the case. My life isn’t ruined right now because of him. He got everything DISMISSED while every other attorney i spoke to were happy to take whatever offer they were given, still leaving me with a ruined record.
Chad, thank you, hiring you was the best decision I’ve ever made.
(Dec 4, 2013) Chad was fantastic. I had a felony case, and as my first offense, I was scared and confused on the entire process. I am glad I choose Chad to represent me, after speaking with so many lawyers. He was honest and detailed from the beginning. He got my case dismissed.
If you need a lawyer in Miami I suggest you go with Chad Piotrowski. He was very adamant about beating my case. He put in maximum effort into my case. He mad me feel comfortable and confident the entire way throughout my case. In the end he fought to get me the very possible outcome. I would definitely retain his services again and recommend him to friends and family. Thank you Chad.
