I had a very positive experience working with Tania and her office staff on a modification of time sharing for my child. When my old attorney moved out of the area, I was recommended to Tania to handle my case. I am so thankful for this recommendation! Tania is easy to talk to and she truly cares about the best interests of the child. I was very impressed with her creativity during our mediation discussions in order to try and come to a resolution. Her ideas and presentation aided us in finally agreeing on a schedule that worked best for all involved. She is professional and is someone who gives you a sense of trust. My child means the world to me and it was very important that I work with an attorney who is both knowledgeable and compassionate about their work.
The office staff are also great to work with. Her legal assistant is very knowledgeable and was always up to speed on the details of my case. She is organized and was usually quick to respond to both phone and email. Overall, I am truly satisfied with this legal team and would recommend them if needed to both family and friends.
When the worst of the worst happens and you need court respresentation you contact the Best of the Best or they could be appointed for you.
Tania Schmidt-Apers was involved with my case from the first day to the final Consent Order closing the case and through that period she was 100% focused on my needs and how to best protect me and my family. Over a period of several years many events make up the docket of the case and Tania kept me informed and taugh me the options and the obstacles of advancing my case to closure. I could always trust she was the strongest supporter for my best interest in a sometimes confusing legal system, she was responsive to my needs and was always knowledgable of the options to advance my case. Tania and her legal team provided the information I needed to make the decisions and have the tenacity and courage to accomplish the ultimate goal in my case; get final consent and closure.
Tania did more than get the best resolution for my case. She gave me back the hope that had been taken from me. Tania represented me in the best interest of my children and I cannot thank her or her staff enough.
Tania is an honest and reliable attorney that is well versed in protecting children. I used her in my divorce 9 years ago and again a few months ago for child support reduction. I originally used Tania at the advice of some friends at work. Her legal knowledge makes her the best choice for representation. Her fees are fair and her legal assistant is wonderful.
When Tania and I first met, she treated me with such compassion. At that time in my life, I needed strong guidance with a womans understanding. Tania was that person. She not only knew about Law inside and out but also took to her time to get to know me as a person. I trusted her Completely!! I never felt pushed aside or rushed off the phone nor out of our in office appointments together. We would sit and talk about my options in regards to my situation and another minute we would just talk as friends and shared some laughs. Tania has a LOT of spunk!! The amount of confidence that Tania effortlessly exuberated was so empowering for me. It was exactly what I needed in my life. Until this very day, Tania and I still keep in touch. Not only was she my attorney but Tania is now also my dear friend. I'm proud to know such a beautiful, strong woman..
Was very pleased to have found such a wonderful lawyer on my own and, basically, by sheer luck! We worked together very well as a team with both her and I focused on the goal and managing the filings, hearings, negotations etc. beyond my satisfaction. Her office staff was extremely pleasant and was able to provide me with the explanations and updates that did arise. And in court, well, there is no one I would rather have had on my side. Lastly, it was obvious that Tania had the respect of the legal community as witnessed by the professionalism the opposing lawyer, court staff and even judge afforded her.
Tania is a very fair and experienced attorney who worked hard for me. She works hard--can spot an "abuser" and is concerned about her clients and their children. Her reputation lead me to hire her. She has done many things to protect familes of St. Johns county and even fellow attorneys. I am happy to have worked with such a kind and well respected ethical attorney who thinks of the needs of her clients first. The values she and her staff have gave me prospective on my case. She was able to help me see my son for the first time in 8 months. Even with working against a "Rambo style" attorney and unreasonable abusive ex husband she kept her cool and was fair and honest.
