I was transferred to one of the Attorneys. According to the website, the company does litigations. After speaking with me, (maybe 1 minute) the attorney stated they do not do litigation and promptly hung up on me.

This firm handled my house closing. Out of a dozen or more home sales, it was by far the worst closing I have even taken part in. They were unprepared, rude, did not have my money at closing, blamed everyone from the buyer's financing to Fedex for their mistakes. They might be great for other types of legal matters, but not home closings.

I retained Kenneth M. Poole, Jr. as my attorney in June 2011. Ken was steadfast in his representation of me in long-drawn-out, post-divorce litigation that concluded in June 2019. Ken never once let me down in his knowledge of my case and its myriad of details. He was quick to produce documents when they were necessary, and I was often in awe at how he made the complex simple. Ken was a steady ship and wise counsel. I highly recommend.

Ken Poole represented me! Any phone call, email I made to him he responded within 24 hours sometimes sooner depending on the urgency. Very impressed with his cummication.. fees were reasonable. He directed me through a very emotional time and we got the best possible outcome with staying out of the court room. Thanks again for your professionalism.

Attorney Elisabeth Whitmire was very professional and patient when reviewing and revising my post nuptial agreement. She took the time to explain why certain things should be revised and how it applies under the law. I recommend attorney Whitmire because she is so knowledge about how Florida law works.

This man is more then a lawyer. He is honest and forward yet patient. He listens and takes in account what I am saying. On a personal level he belongs to the Lord and there is no one else I rather represent me .. then someone who seeks our God first. His staff are amazing. He will get your case done! He will make you happy that he is fighting for you!

I got into a bad accident. My car was totaled and I was out of work for weeks. Michael Ortiz ended up being a big mistake. He was friends with my chiropractor and both of them made a pretty penny while I got peanuts. He insisted that I accept the first offer from the insurance company which left me with 2500 dollars. I lost more than that the first week of work that I missed. I feel strongly that ANY other lawyer there is could have done a better job. I am also convinced that he needed the money more than I did. Do yourself a favor if you have an accident and get ANYONE besides him to handle it. I would have been better off by handling it myself and that is a fact.

Very courteous and professional. I would never have gotten through a bad experience the way I did without their team!

I have had the pleasure of hiring Michael Ortiz twice over the years and there aren't enough words to describe what a pleasurable experience with a wonderful positive outcome. Michael is a unique, dedicated, truly professional honest man, who goes way up, above and beyond for his clients. If you are looking for an injury attorney look no further you will not find anyone more competent, honest or who will work harder for you then Michael Ortiz. I feel a 100% percent if I had gone elsewhere the outcome of my case would not have been as favorable as It had been with Michael, as he never gave up when others I know would have. Michael and his staff put in whole hearted true effort, dedication and passion in a very comfortable, professional manner that you just don't see this kind of service anymore . He always had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Michael Ortiz as an injury attorney to anyone who is looking for a positive outcome with the least stress involved. I had a very pleasurable experience of meeting this wonderful, unique, professional good man who is exceptionally good at what he does.

Michael Ortiz was a great attorney throughout the length of my case. He provided me with a cell phone number in case he was not in his office and was either always able to be contacted or always called back within a very reasonable time frame. Very friendly but also very aggressive and extremely professional.

This is a wonderful law firm, they are great at what they do, the front desk are very great at their jobs. Any questions or concerns you have, they are always there and very helpful!! Mrs. Pulice working very hard on her cases and she cares about you as an individual, she is a very smart woman and so sweet!!! I highly recommend this law firm!!!

Not someone you hope to call! However, I feel like I made the perfect decision. I was visiting, hit by a drunk driver and not in a good place. Injured, car totaled and bad service at near by hospital. Once I met Mr Farrow I felt things would get better! I was definitely right. He and his office made the entire process trouble free. Everyone in the office was kind and efficient and great at keeping me in the loop. Positive ending for a very negative experience! Thank you!

Jo Ann Pulice is a bulldog; she does not give up. She is a bulldog for her clients in dealing with hospitals and insurance companies. When she was recommended to me after my car accident, I didn't know what to expect. My history in dealing with lawyers was not positive. I had a much different experience with Jo Ann. In dealing with me, she was attentive and personable. She made me feel like I was the most important appointment on her agenda. A visit to her office was a pleasure and the results of her efforts far beyond my expectations. Not only were all my bills covered, but there was money left over for me, for all my pain and suffering. Do not hesitate to hire her; you will not be disappointed. Thanks, Jo Ann, for all you did for me.

Absolutely recommend this injury firm! They treated me like family and always kept me informed on my case! Very helpful people with a great heart made me feel valued as a human being. So thankful that I decided to go with mr. farrow.

The 1st time we want to see Tim was for my husband He had got hit by a county truck , no one else would take the case because it had to do with the government Tim was so easy to talk to and was so happy to fight for my husband, he took the case and got my husband a very nice settlement. The 2nd case we had with Tim was for myself it was 20 years later but we know who we needed to call, We got T boned in a parking lot ,it took Tim 5 years of hard Work to finally settle the case. Whenever I tell anyone that it took 5 years to get the settlement they say you had a very persistent lawyer didn't you, I say yes I did Tim will do anything in his power to get you the settlement you deserve and hes just one terrific person with the greatest personality for a lawyer I cannot praise Tim enough He Is just the best, thank you Tim

The team at Justice Pays are amazing. They listened to my situation and immediately came up with a strategy and plan. They kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and definitely managed my questions and concerns. The team at Justice PAYS over-achieved on my expectations and enabled me to get a great settlement. I highly recommend speaking with their team for your personal injury situation.

I was in a car accident, car totaled with multiple injuries. Mr.Goldman met with my husband and I on a Saturday to discuss the situation. He was warm, assuring and professional. He handled every detail of the case, answered any questions I had along the way promptly. The case closed with me getting the maximum settlement!

Our experience with Justice Pays was perfect! David Goldman was very Professional, replied quickly, answered all of our questions and settled for 3 times the amount originally offered. We highly recommend Goldman! Thank-you!

My brother was involved in a motorcycle accident that technically ended his life, somehow they brought him back to life, but was in a coma for at least 6 months, rehab for over a year at a special hospital, severe brain damage and extreme body injuries. He will never be the same, yes he is alive but in bad shape. Due to his severe injuries I was involved in solving his problems, from day one. Justice Pays and their team were there from the 1st day after the accident. Yes, they were doing their jobs, but, they did it very well and the settlement was above and beyond what my brother and I expected. I have dealt with many lawyers over the past 30 years and for the first time I felt as they treated us as part of the family, and not just a payday check. I’ve never felt that with any other lawyer in my lifetime. I highly value your skills and I recommend you to everyone I know.

Mr.Fernandez & his team did an outstanding job in bringing my case to a successful settlement. He was honest and worked hard on my behalf.

Best Law Firm in Sarasota,

There is No Better Law Firm and That’s Being Totally Honest. They Care about you and Work Hard for their Clients and They Get you The Biggest and The Most of a Return on your injury. They make No Promises They Can’t Keep but They Blew me away Getting Me More than I Expected..... Thank you to Everyone at The Firm for working hard for Me and Making sure I was Well Taken Care of !!!!! ???????????????? 5 Stars isn’t Enough God Bless y’all Stay Safe ❤️

very helpful staff and the attorney explained everything step by step. I had a great experience using them!

At the time of my accident I was working in a nursing home. You really had to work for your pay which included being short staffed. I was on WC for about a month before my husband said you should be getting paid. Mind you I was unable to walk at all, couldn’t shower without help, and I had 4 kids to still tend to. All I got from management was attitudes and why I can’t work. So after calling several attorneys who didn’t want to take me on due to the severity of my case, Berlin law firm did. They were very attentive to all my needs, they rushed medication orders, they took care of everything. Every time I emailed them they emailed right back. They were awesome! I would recommend them 1,000 times over.

I worked for a roofing supply company for the past three and a half years. During that time the physical demand of the job took a toll on my body, and accidents were many, so much so that I had three different Worker’s’ Compensation claims that were still active. I don’t use FB much, but one night I happened to log in and came across an ad promoting Workers’ Comp Law Firms. It asked if you had any claims in the past three years, and if so, to “enter your information in to be contacted by a law firm near you!”.... so I did. To be honest, I didn’t really expect much to come from it, but hey, it was worth a try, right? The next morning I was contacted by Berlin Law Firm. I spoke with them on the phone for about an hour and explain the circumstances of my claims, for which they promptly accepted to represent me on. The fact that I happened across that ad must’ve been divine intervention, because I felt trapped at that job. The benefits were great ( top end medical/dental/vision, 401k match and profit sharing, PTO and sick days ) and the pay was okay, but man did you have to work for it! However, as we all know, the job market isn’t the best around here, especially when you have a tainted past. So I definitely felt trapped and it was depressing me to the fullest. Well, I’m happy to say that Berlin Law freed me from that trap! Our day to day contact was handled by Sydney, I was represented by Amanda, and Steve Berlin finished it of with the mediation. They were extremely attentive the entire time, and man, did they own it! So if you find yourself in a similar situation then I highly recommend that you contact Berlin Law. Even if it’s for a quick assessment. Trust me, with their combined professional experience, you’ll be in great hands and you will NOT regret it! Thanks for freeing me, Berlin Law! : )

    At the time of my accident I was working in a nursing home. You really had to work for your pay which included being short staffed. I was on WC for about a month before my husband said you should be getting paid. Mind you I was unable to walk at all, couldn’t shower without help, and I had 4 kids to still tend to. All I got from management was attitudes and why I can’t work. So after calling several attorneys who didn’t want to take me on due to the severity of my case, Berlin law firm did. They were very attentive to all my needs, they rushed medication orders, they took care of everything. Every time I emailed them they emailed right back. They were awesome! I would recommend them 1,000 times over.

My husband and I just purchase our first home and the law firm was there to help us every step of the way! We’re so lucky to have had their guidance and expertise. They made sure everything was handled while we focused on the fun and exciting part of buying our first home.

Chad Gates is a class act… Truly a seamless process closing with Band, Gates & Dramis. I appreciate their timely communication, trustworthiness & prompt attention to all details.

Chad Gates has helped in many of the transactions I do in real estate. He has deep knowledge of all types of transactions (foreclosures, traditional sales, short sales, investments, etc) and he's my go to guy for a local real estate lawyer. I will continue to use his services. Billie (works in his office) is SO easy to work with it's a pleasure every single time. They are ON POINT.

Least “lawyery” law firm I’ve ever used. Closings, LLC’s...a pleasure to do business with. If you must deal with a lawyer....

Eric brings his knowledge of the law down to a personal level, as well as a tenacity in resolving your issues quickly, and happens to be a great guy to boot. i wouldn't choose anyone else in matters with my business, and I'm so happy i found them. thanks again Eric!

It was a pleasure working with Allie Castellano for my will preparation. She was kind, compassionate, personable, patient, and caring. The communication was impeccable. When I went in to the office to sign the document, I experienced outstanding customer service (thank you Janet!). I was treated with respect and kindness. I highly recommend Buckman & Buckman for estate planning. I am very grateful for their services.

I worked with Alisha and she was helpful, prompt, and professional. She helped me write a contract for my business, we got it done quickly and it came out great. 10/10 recommend Buckman&Buckman!

My daughter, a physician, recommended Buckman&Buckman to me for my will, power of attorney, and health care representatives. Although I was traveling, I was able to provide the information required. I spoke with Allie Buckman several times on the phone. She answered so many of my questions patiently and in detail. When I returned to the area, we met in person and I signed all the forms. The process was smooth and thorough. My daughter's needs were more complex than mine. She was fully satisfied and had researched the costs for everything, assuring me that this was the best services for the best price. I feel that I am now part of the Buckman&Buckman family and will continue to use their services as the need arises. They are receiving my highest recommendation. Mona Hegarty

Allie made the process for creating new wills and healthcare proxies easy. After listening to our goals and preferences she walked us through a series of questions and situations we should consider. It was through, low key and never hurried. She answered all our questions and made the procedure for our initial call through review and signing very simple and stress-free.

Buckman and Buckman were outstanding in the pursuit of a positive outcome in my case. I would use them again, anytime.
