I have been practicing law since 1989. First as a prosecutor for 10 years, and as an attorney in private practice since 2000. I am board certified by the Florida Bar in criminal trial law and have been since 1999. I ihave tried over 300 trials in that amount of time.
Jonathan Wesley Dingus
Attorney at Law
When I graduated from law school in 1988, I decided that I didn't want to be a corporate lawyer, but someone who helps individuals whose lives have in some way been affected by the law. I am board certified by the Florida Bar as a specialist in criminal trial law, and I take any and all criminal cases from first degree murder down to traffic tickets. I also help people going through a divorce, a financial conflict within a divorce, as well as child custody and child support issues.
I would recomend mr dingus i waited to do a review after my case because i wanted to do a honest review. I had gotten into some trouble i called mr dingus and we set up a meeting. It took 2 months to get my case dismissed but he got it done. He works well with all kinds of cases and people its very few lawyers that have this kind of mindset in panama city. If he cannot help he will refer you to someone that will. If you get into trouble give mr dingus a call first
I knew the moment I met with Mr. Dingus he was the right Attorney for me. Very Respectful and straight forward.
Mr Dingus did everything I needed and wanted him to do . He is exceeded my expectations and had my ticket dismissed. I have a class A CDL with haz mat endorsement and need this license for my job. I can't emphasize how important keeping my safe driver and having this ticket totally dismissed. Mr Dingus was very honest with me and his staff are exceptional as well. Mr Dingus was there to answer all my questions and was very prompt in returning my calls and concerns . Outstanding job money well spent on exceptional service and results . Thank you again
Mr Dingus is an excellent and very experienced lawyer and I would recommend his team whole heartedly. John represented me in several criminal cases as well as my custody family law case. He is the only attorney I will ever ask to help me. John will support you and educate you along the way explaining what is going on and what to expect. Mr. Dingus will stick with you and see it to the end he will earn your trust and respect. I trust him and his team with my life, my children and my freedom. He is very organized, knowledgeable and systematic. John is extremely well connected and well liked among his peers. John will fight for your freedom and protect your rights. If you need someone's help in a serious case then the only person to trust with your life is Johnathan Dingus.
Jonathan Dingus is out of this world! He is very professional and his secretary is amazing!
I live in Melbourne FL over 400 miles from Panama City....where my mentally ill 41 year old son got in trouble with the law during one of his many manic and delusional episodes. Knowing that the public defenders can only do so much I searched the internet and after speaking over the phone with several attorneys......I picked Jonathan Dingus....because of his credentials and experience. He began right away suggesting a course of action we could take to get my son help and not just leave him in jail......With his help and direction we were able to get my son professionally evaluated in jail by a Clinical Psychiatrist ...and as a result get the court to send my son to get help at the mental hospital.....After my son's hospital stay was complete Mr Dingus found my son an inpatient rehab program that he could go to to hopefully get better. I recommend Mr Dingus because he knew what to do and he did everything he said he would do to get my son to a better place for now and he also worked within our budget. I don't know what anyone else could expect from a hired attorney!
I know in many cases in this day and time, you don't bring God into law or politics. But, God brought this attorney into our lives in one of our darkest hours. Mr. Dingus was compassionate and caring. Qualities you don't often see in law anymore. He was brutally honest with us from the beginning. Whether it was what we liked or wanted to hear. He NEVER lied or misled us. Granted, we didn't get the outcome "we" had hoped for but I can't and won't blame that on his abilities. With what he had (or didn't have to work with) played a vital role in our outcome. His patience is beyond explainable. So, I'll say ... If you are looking for a fair and HONEST criminal attorney, I urge you to speak with him. God bless this man in his future works.
If you want a lawyer that will be honest with you, return your phone calls , who treats people with respect, knows the law backward and forward and most importantly a human being you can trust with your life and your rights then this is the man to call. I could not be more satisfied with the courtesy and respect and my overall experience with this law firm. This may be the first time I have reviewed anything but I find it necessary to because it was hard to find a lawyer the possessed the social and human qualities I was looking for in a lawyer. A lawyer you can trust is very hard to find and I don't trust very easily. The day I hired attorney Dingus, I knew my case was in good hands and we won. Anytime I had a question or made a phone call it was returned promptly and my answer was fully addressed to my full and complete understanding. I would recommend this law firm to anyone looking for a lawyer who is not guilty. I am so very grateful to have found this law firm because the lawyer I had hired before wanted me to take the plea deal and had I done that my life would be looking a lot different right now. Thank you, Jonathan Dingus, and your staff (you have an amazing secretary!) for treating me like a human being and standing up for me in Federal Court. You have given me my life back - for that, there is no price tag. Also finding a lawyer that is versed and has the credentials to practice law in a Federal Court of Law is very hard to find in Bay County. My faith in humanity and the justice system has been restored because of them and my experience knowing that there are lawyers out there who are lawyers for good reasons because they believe in the law. I have my life back and peace of mind I can't say enough good things.
As a man who loves his children more than anything.... Jonathan helped me with my divorce legally by obtaining what was truly fair for myself, my ex, our children and the Courts. That is to say in all aspects of a divorce case.... Example...Children, custody, property, capital, ect. I personally highly recommend Jonathan Dingus to anyone. Since my divorce, I have retained Jonathan for all my legal needs. This man has experience, he practices law with integrity, knowledge, respect, honesty, loyalty, pride, and perseverance.... His legal ethics, and morals are those sought after, and founded by a standard in all law practices. I personally recommend Jonathan Dingus as the top council in Florida.
Very stern, very inteligent and quick to respond lawyer
I had recently been served with a restraining order from my ex fiance who blatantly lied about many false occurrences. Jonathan Dingus was quick to pull out the truth with his haste and confident questions to the petitioner and called out her out on all of her lies in front of her court room, Jonathan Dingus is by the best lawyer In the area and very dependable.
He Got It Done!
Recently I was involved in an "altercation" with a vehicle, a local police officer and the highway patrol. Initially I figured I was up that creek, we all know of, without a paddle but after speaking with John Dingus I was very happy with the end results. His office quickly and efficiently handled my unfortunate situation and informed me of all the details along the way. Bottom line is this, if it wasn't for him and his staff I would likely be ringing in the new year at the local County Holding Facility (Jail) instead of with my friends and family.
Fantastic service, Excellent communication!
I could not be more pleased after using Mr. Dingus for my divorce. I am out of state and Mr Dingus and his staff made the process easy and painless, surpassed my expectations! If you are in need of family law in his area, he is your man!
Compassionate Attorney with Great Ethics
I have used Jonathan Dingus as my attorney for several cases over the past 10 years. Jonathan and his staff are not just passionate about helping their clients, but also very committed to going the extra mile to help them clearly understand the legal advice he is giving and fully answers your questions. I've had the pleasure over the years to become a friend of Jonathan's and his family. They are a very loving Christian family with the ability to help set you at ease during some of the hardest times in your life. I would highly recommend Jonathan Dingus for your legal needs.
Review ~ Jonathan W. Dingus, Attorney at Law
I went to Mr Dingus, feeling about as low as someone can get . I'd made a mistake, but felt I was going to be railroaded. Finding it hard to tell my problem, he told me "sometimes bad things happen to good people ", so I was able to explain my scenario. I have never forgotten that . With professionalism, experience and genuine concern, he handled my case beyond expectation and I consider him a personal hero . But beyond that , I think the straight talk and respect he showed me are what I remember most from the experience ..... I could not recommend anyone better, to treat you fairly and give you his best effort .
I'm incredibly thankful to Jonathan and his staff for providing me with the best legal service and advice. I would recommend him to anyone deserving of his skill and professionalism.
