  • HIRE HER!!!!!!!!

    Ms. Palma is the best attorney to have in your corner. I had a previous attorney prior to Ms. Palma and I was very worried to change in the middle of my divorce case but it was the BEST decision I ever made!   I remember getting off the phone during the first consultation and saying "She's the one, thats my new attorney". If you are looking for an attorney that will respond in a timely manner, is very organized, has compassion, great communication, provides updates on your case, knows the law, and is trustworthy, Ms. Palma is that lawyer! My divorce was not easy by a long shot because of my difficult ex but she knew exactly how to handle the case. Even though her cost may be higher than others, please understand she is worth every penny. "You get what you pay for." Not to mention, her amazing Paralegal Sarah! During my trial Sarah was able to assist Ms. Palma and provided all the necessary documentation on the spot in the heat of the divorce trial. Words truly cannot describe the gratitude I have towards Ms. Palma and her team. If I need any legal advice in the future, I would not hesitate in choosing Ms. Palma again. HUGE THANK YOU Ms. Palma AND Sarah, for always putting my mind at ease throughout my whole divorce case!!!

  • Ms. Palma is a professional, compassionate and diligent attorney.

    I don't think I could have chosen a better person to represent me during my divorce. Ms. Palma guided, advised, encouraged, and supported me every step of the way. When I was unsure of my decisions, she kept me focus and when I needed clarification she took the time to help me understand. When I needed a strong and knowledgeable person in my corner, Ms. Palma was there. I'm sincerely grateful for how she handled my case, from day one all the way to the last few minutes, always knowing she was keeping my best interest in mind.

  • No one better

    I have hired Ms Palma twice. Each time she sets realistic expectations of the outcome and each time we won. She is feirce, respectful, thorough and efficient. She knows the law like no other and took her time to explain them to us each step of the way. She is a fantastic negotiator in mediation and is fearless at trial. I have referred her in the past and will continue to refer her again. Thank you Patricia for all you have done for our family.

  • Patricia is an amazing attorney

    Patricia handled my divorce and child custody after. She is responsive, compassionate, and honest. I would recommend her to anyone looking for great representation that is more interested in doing the right thing than just doing something.

  • Best Attorney

    Ms. Palma is the best! I had a previous attorney who was basically doing nothing on my case. After I retained Ms. Palma, she immediately started working on my case and scheduled it for a temporary relief hearing. We were successful at the temporary relief hearing and shortly after the hearing my ex agreed to settle the case. I am very happy with the result. If you are looking for a professional and tenacious attorney for your family law case, Ms. Palma is the best!

  • Attorney Palma offers professional personalized representation with

    I am an out of state client with Attorney Palma. Being represented by an attorney in a child custody action half way across the country initially made me very anxious. However, Attorney Palma resolved all of my concerns on the issue and more. She is an extremely knowledgeable attorney in family law. Although my case settled, and has been inactive for some time, I recently contacted her with a concern. Attorney Palma filed a Notice of Change of Address as I recently moved very quickly. In fact, she asked me a question in an email to prepare the Notice. Before I could respond later that day, she located the information herself, and had already filed the Notice. Attorney Palma cares, and it shows. She goes above and beyond in representing her clients. I will use Attorney Palma for all my future family law needs in the Tampa Bay area.

  • Ms. Palma truly lives up to her motto: Divorce With Dignity

    My divorce was a tumultuous one that lasted 1.5 years. In the end it was Ms. Palma's persistence and even-handed manner that prevailed against what, at times, seemed to be irresponsible and irrational opposition to our efforts to achieve a good-faith, equitable settlement. I am deeply grateful to Ms. Palma and her staff for the excellent work they've done on my case. Ms. Palma, may the coming years bring peace, prosperity, and professional success
