About

In the year 2000, Ms. Palma founded her own law firm, focusing her practice primarily on Family Law. Clients consistently praise Ms. Palma for the personalized and highly professional legal services she provides. Her primary objective revolves around securing swift and fair outcomes for her clients and their children. Ms. Palma firmly believes that effective negotiation is the optimal and most cost-efficient approach to resolving family law matters. However, if the opposing party proves unwilling to reach an equitable resolution, resorting to court intervention might become necessary. In such instances, Ms. Palma leverages her extensive 19-year trial experience to safeguard the best interests of her clients and their children.

Remarkably, Ms. Palma has been awarded the distinguished AV Preeminent® Peer Review rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, an accolade bestowed upon a select minority of attorneys. This rating stands as the highest attainable accolade for any lawyer or law firm in the United States. Reflecting unparalleled professional excellence, the rating acknowledges a lawyer's exceptional ethical standards and legal prowess.

Actively involved in the legal community, Ms. Palma is a prominent member of the Hillsborough County Bar Association and the Family Law Inn of Court situated in Tampa, Florida, where she garnered a professional award nomination in 2008. Beyond her legal practice, Ms. Palma generously volunteers as an Attorney Ad Litem, representing the interests of children in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit. She also serves as Civil Counsel for both Crossroads for Florida Kids and Florida’s Children First. Notably, Florida Trend Magazine recognized Ms. Palma in 2016 as part of their Florida Legal Elite in the field of Family and Marital Law. Furthermore, she received The Super Lawyers Distinction of Excellence Award in 2018, an honor reserved for the top 5% of attorneys in Florida annually.
