She saved my life...
I don't know if I can put this into words but I'll do my best. Belkis Plata saved my life. I was attacked by a man from behind and the state felt like I was not in my right to defend myself. I was eventually charged with 2nd degree attempted murder, which could have landed me 30 years. Ms. Plata came into my case on the tail end and at a very low point. She was like a pit bull and would not let go...

"Damn Good Attorney. Without Ms. Shannon Schott I'd be wasting the majority of my adult life in prison. She took a genuine interest in my case and was determined to see it through with positive results. Going up against a small town "Good ole boy" system, she was poised under pressure and did not falter. Her close attention to detail resulted in first a mistrial followed by a victory for both myself and everyone at Plata & Schott Attorneys at law."

"A Lawyer you can trust! A Lawyer you can trust. I had a bad few years. I am a military vet who had never been in trouble. I was arrested for defending my daughter who was sexually assaulted by a family friend when she was 4. I went to court pled guilty and was sentenced to 5 years probation. I paid all my fees within two years and completed all my obligations required by the state. I finished my AA degree and earned my paramedic license. In order to continue my education and get into nursing school i had to get off state supervision. The state attorney requested i not be eligible for early termination due to, i have no idea. Another year later my probation officer advised me to get a new attorney and attempt early termination agin. Attorney Belkis Plata was recommend by a friend so i made a call. I went in for a consultation and within 2 weeks my supervision was terminated. She was unbelievably affordable and effective. I have never needed a lawyer other then the original case and wish i could have acquired Ms. Plata’s services for the original case. I never write reviews for anything, but i figure this could help someone in a similar situation."

"Great experience with a top rate attorney. As a lawyer myself, I have worked with many attorneys in Florida and across the U.S. Plata Schott was incredibly helpful in my recent legal case. I have little experience with family law and was confident that Plata Schott was handling my case as a matter of importance and expediency. I appreciated being informed at every stage of the process. Shannon Schott was incredibly responsive and professional. She made me feel like any question I asked would be answered swiftly and after diligent investigation into the legal specifics. Shannon also liaised with the courts and sheriff's office to make sure all aspects of my case were handled appropriately. I would definitely recommend Plata Schott and am grateful to have had them as my attorneys in this matter."

"Fantastic Attorney! My situation was very time oriented, having to find an attorney to hire by the end of a two day period. From my initial call with her, Ms. Schott was very straightforward and attentive to everything I wanted! We discussed (on the phone), what I wanted out of my case & she answered any questions I had before I even retained her!! After retention, she immeditely started working on my case!! The outcome was swift & the best that I could've hoped for!! She was very straightforward on what to expect & the various outcomes that could occur and what we were going for. Prices were fair, and they even gave me the option for a payment plan!! She also gave me her personal cell, so anytime I needed to reach her she was there! If unavailable, she would call me back as soon as possible! Very professional, courteous, and swift. Would recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney!"

"Best Lawyer in JAX! We hired Belkis when my husband was arrested on several very serious felony charges. Belkis is not only very knowledgeable about the law, she genuinely cares about her clients. She was patient and professional, inside the courtroom and out, in what turned out to be a very long process. She worked closely with our family and was receptive to our input. We are all extremely grateful to Belkis because our case resulted in a misdemeanor t/s. If you need a great lawyer and great firm with reasonable costs, call this lady."

"Compassion and thorough! Very sharp lady. I happened to get my leg caught in a bear trap on a first offense felony 3 and couldn't afford a private attorney, however Ms. Belkis Plata stepped up to the plate and got me through this making me a believer that our justice system really works in this country. It really works; for the good individuals that makes a mistake in life 'to going after the bad and implementing the correct punishment(s). Have faith in the public defenders office...they are very good and they do work hard on your behalf. I am grateful to have had Belkis Plata in my corner. CDZ Jacksonville."

"The best attorney! Ms. Plata is foremost the best attorney that I have had dealing with criminal cases. I was battling a very hard case and she got me through and I have all faith in her. I highly recommend her to anyone else, I really thought that public defenders didn't care about people with cases but Ms. Plata made a believer out of me and I really appreciate everything she has done for me. I had another attorney when my case first started but I am so glad and blessed that they switched me to Ms. Plata because if it wasn't for her I would of had a different outcome on my case. Ms. Plata you are the best. Thank you!"
