My divorce ended up being uncontested by me against the advice of Anne Marie. I found her to be intelligent, to the point, professional, and compassionate. MY ONLY COMPLAINT with her office, is with her legal assistant/ office manager Shannon Gange. Upon my initial visit, Shannon TOLD me to have a seat in the waiting room and brought out some paperwork to be filled out by me prior to my appointment with Anne Marie. She proceeded to explain how to fill out the forms and to be sure not to leave anything out because if "I have to fill it out for you, my time is much more expensive than yours (word for word). I found this to be very unprofessional especially coming from an assistant representing a professional office but I was not there to see her so I brushed it off and proceeded. Most all communication outside of your paid time with Anne Marie is done through Shannon and the next several communications with her proved to be an extension of my initial visit. I very politely asked her if she could speak to me with the same tone and respect that I show her? She apologized and said she was just having a bad day. To sum it up, I wanted to use Anne Marie with a contempt issue I was having but the continued issues with Shannon's unprofessional ism was too much for me as I had enough stress going on to have to deal with her. I had never commented any of these issues to Anne Marie (which I should have) because I really liked her as an attorney and did not want to jeopardize anything. Although Anne Marie did not represent me in court, she appeared to be very competent and genuinely a good person. It's a shame she has someone so unprofessional representing her office. After explaining my added stress from Shannon to Anne Marie, she gave me a refund of the unused portion of my balance. If you are thick skinned enough to deal with Shannon, I really would recommend Anne Marie. My Ex wore my skin out and I just could not deal with her.

Anne Marie is the first person I call when I need legal advice. She has helped our family in several instances, varying from child support issues, to libel/slander and a motor vehicle case. There is no price to put on sound legal advice, especially when the outcome potentially weighs heavily financially on your family. In each case, she gave sound advice, and then gave updates as they were available to keep us informed. She is aggressive when you need it, makes a plan, and then delivers. I definitely recommend her.

We found Ms. Gennusa to be very professional, honest, extremely intelligent, kind, compasionate and straight to the point. Answered all of our questions before they were even asked so that there were no surprises and we were well prepared during each phase.
I would not hesitate to recommend or use her in the future.

Anne Marie Gennusa has represented me twice, first in 2007 in a contempt case related to child support I was not receiving and more recently a custody related matter. I had initially heard about her through a friend, a social worker, who was able to witness her in court on several occasions. I was not disappointed with the resolution of either case. I felt Ms. Gennusa genuinely cared for my family which can be rare to find when selecting an attorney. Even though I had moved from the area I chose to return to St. Augustine to retain Ms. Gennusa. She was willing to commute to help me and went above and beyond my expectations to represent me. Her fees are very reasonable and she is straightforward about all costs involved. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a good, smart, tough, eithical attorney for a family matter.

It was a real blessing when I choose Anne Marie to represent me in my DUI case. I found Anne Marie to be well informed and totally up front when it came to focusing on what we set out to accomplish as a team. The outcome was a very pleasant experience. She gives you a strong, commited effort at an extremely reasonable cost.

I would recommend this attorney to handle just about anything. She was very down to earth and to the point on how she was to handle our case. Easy to talk to and can relate to her as a professional as well as an individual.

Anne Marie is great. She picked up my falling apart case that had already taken two years to get where it was by another lawyer. She jumped in and had it finished in two weeks. She was also able to salvage parts of my case the other attorney fouled up. I wish I would have retained her in the begining.

I first met Ann Marie when she was the Assistant States Attorney in 2001 and I was impressed with her then. She is now representing me as my attorney in my divorce and again, I am extremely impressed. I find her to be an outstanding attorney. She is extremely professional, orgainized and always on top of things. I find her staff extremely efficient, professional and courteous. Ann Marie is assertive, focused and always keeps me informed. I know in my experiences with Ann Marie, that anyone who retains her for their attorney will be impressed and totally satisfied with her. I'm truly happy with my choice in having Ann Marie to represent me. Sincerely, Lu-Ellen
