Mr. Dingus is by far one of the best people you could ever hope to find to represent you in a most forthright and diligent manner. This man, I am so appreciative of because he ardently fought for justice to be severed not only in a professional manner but in a compassionate manner as well. While I hope that I am never in a situation where I must retain representation again, but if ever again I am , I will trust him to whole heartedly. I must tell you that when it came down to payment for his services, he cares more about getting justice then a dollar amount attached to what he does. My words cannot convey my gratitude for all he did for me.

He was excellent and the price was reasonable. I trusted him and I knew he was fighting for the best situation for my daughter. I highly recommend and if I ever needed his service again, that would be my first choice hands down. Thank you.

At first, I laughed that we had decided to go with a Mr. "Dingus" for our felony case, but I am beyond thankful we did. My wife and I were stuck in an extremely difficult and complex situation. I just want to thank you for all of your work on our case over these past 14 months. It was a long and burdensome process, but we are unbelievably happy to finally be over with it. We truly appreciate the persistence and dedication. I'd imagine when you took on the case, you were not fully aware of what you were getting yourself into. We had to go up against strong resistance from several high-level, corrupt officials. But I am very fortunate to have had Jonathan Dingus on our side. We were also grateful for the price point we were able to agree upon. I am excited to get my life back on track and start my nursing career. Money and time well spent. We are free!

Mr. Dingus is an exceptional criminal attorney for felony and misdemeanor cases. My husband chose Mr. Dingus to represent him in multiple felony cases, in two counties, based on word of mouth and we are more than satisfied. My husband was looking at years in prison. Due diligence, professional correspondence, knowledge of law proceedings, thoughtfulness, timely response, proper filing...all combined to ensure my husband get the best result and judgement possible. 4 years prison down to 11/29 is more than we could have ever asked or prayed for. Thank you Mr. Dingus and Betty for fulfilling your assurances!

My life was flipped upside down in the blink of an eye with some false allegations. The feelings of anxiety, depair, panic, paranoia, sadness, the unknown, not understanding, fear...etc... were dominating me. I was in a place I have never known and on the edge. I called Mr. DIngus. He listened to me . He understood me. He consoled me and spoke sense to me. He helped me to calm me and show me the realities of the situation. He assured me and helped me to keep it together with my world seemingly turned into an overnight horror. He went to work for me and things went exactly as he suggested that they should. He is a good man and a Christian. I am forever grateful for him being there for me during the lowest point of my existence. If you want an honest man that cares about you and doesn't treat you like a number then you should consider speaking with the very knowledgeable and compassionate Mr. Dingus. My family is forever grateful. This experience has made me want to be the best man, Christian, Husband, Father, neighbor, and stranger that I can be for every single day of the rest of my life. I will NEVER take this life for granted again. Thank you Jonathan Dingus for being there for me.

It was pleasure to work together on my case concerning herassment from my neighbors. He a great listener, and knows the law and how to apply them. I highly recommend him, and he doesn't take you to the cleaners on cost. He's up front to beating around the bush.

John handled a case for me involving my daughter. I felt from our initial interview that he would be honest and professional . We had to go to trial and I was not disappointed at all by his results. I would highly recommend Jonathan Dingus !
- Chester Mathias. 5/14/2018
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
- King Jackson. 2/13/2018
I knew the moment I met with Mr. Dingus he was the right Attorney for me. Very Respectful and straight forward.
- Caroline McDaniel. 1/19/2018
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.
