I really enjoyed working with Deborah and her Paralegal Shannon. I found them to be patient and understanding as well as fair and knowledgeable. Deborah will ensure that you are prepared with an understandng of case law and has a good handle on the way judges are likely to interpret facts. This is very helpful to you as you are making a decision as to the best course of action to take in a family matter involving separation vs divorce.

Deborah Greene is an outstanding attorney who assisted me with an extremely complicated legal battle involving the safety of my granddaughter. She was a great comfort in helping me navigate the complex issues of custody that crossed state lines. She explained all of my options and potential problems of my case at every turn. Deborah is very knowledgeable in the area of family law and very quick to respond as the case took unexpected turns. I was most impressed with her genuine concern for the welfare and safety of my granddaughter. Although very expensive, If you are looking for a compassionate and very smart attorney, I would highly recommend Deborah.

I was recommended to Deborah by one of her former law school classmates. Upon our initial meeting, I knew she was the right attorney for me - she was very knowledgeable, confident, and very experienced in the area for which I needed her (divorce in FL).
Throughout the entire nearly one year I worked with Deborah, I felt I was always able to get a straight, honest answer out of Deborah. She didn't waste my time, and actually recommended ways to keep the costs down, so I didn't feel 'ripped off' even though her rates are obviously not cheap due to her long tenure in this type of work. Her office staff was very professional as well. Bottom line, I felt in very good hands with Deborah, and the conclusion to our work together was as favorable as divorce can be....

Deborah was a pleasure to work with. During a very emotional and stressful time she always had answers to my questions and did detailed research on my specific situation. She has a memory like an elephant, which is so important in divorce cases. Everone's situation is different. Not only did I feel I chose the right attorney after speaking with several before making my decision, but upon entering the hearing room, the judge congratulated me on making such a good choice. I would highly recommend her to others.

Deborah worked with my on my family law case. I found her to be very knowledgeable and helpful. I especially found her to be even-tempered and was willing to give counsel to the pros and cons of what I was asking, even when she needed to tell me that my chances were not what I would have hoped, thus saving me time and money.
She took time to prepare thoroughly for my case and it became evident in more than one instance when we got to court that her preparation was much better than the opposing counsel and that made the difference.
I would definitely use Deborah's services again and have referred friends to her based on the positive experience that I had

Deborah Greene has represented my family in both business and personal legal matters. In every situation, she has been knowledgeable, trustworthy, diligent, and insightful. We could not ask for a more capable attorney.
Ms. Greene’s expertise and sound advice have gotten us through some very difficult situations -- including contract negotiations and business disputes, as well as matters of family law. She is a good listener and an equally good adviser, explaining issues and answering questions in clear, straightforward terms. I always get the sense that she is looking out for my best interests. More importantly, she has always succeeded in protecting my interests. I feel truly lucky to have had Ms. Greene and her firm on my side.

Deborah is an excellent attorney. I've been going through a divorce for almost 4 years. I hired 3 other attorneys and they treated me like a number, took my money and I had nothing to show for it, but debt and a lot of headaches. Deborah listend to my concerns and issues. She has been responsive to my needs and effectively addressed and resurfaced all issues that no other attorney would do for me. What I like about Deborah is her direct approach, honesty, and energy to get things done in a professional manner. I've never had the feeling she is misleading me or stringing things along to make an extra buck. Deborah is a tenacios advocate and has a high level of integrity. I highly recommend her!

Deborah is hard-working, honest, and caring. She gets results, but more importantly is honest in her interactions with you the client as well as the opposing party. She explains the facts of the case clearly and concisely and helps you understand all your options. She responds to concerns in an extremely timely fashion and keeps you updated throughout the proceedings of the case. I have retained Deborah and her firm on multiple occasions and will continue to utilize their expertise in the coming future.

I am the head of a multi-million dollar non-profit here in Jacksonville who has utilized the services of Deborah Greene for a number of years. I got to know Deborah when she was representing my brother who is a high profile individual in town, when he was going through a divorce. Although it was a long term marriage, he managed to get divorced without having to pay monthly alimony. I have found Deborah to be detail oriented, tough as nails, but with a heart of gold. Though she generally handles high-net worth cases, I know her firm has not hesitated to do pro bono work for our non-profit when requested. If I was going through a family law dispute today, there is no other lawyer in town that I would turn to.

At first, Ms. Greene was very responsive to my case. As the case proceeded though, it became very apparent that all she is concerned with is money. Ms. Greene's advice for how I should proceed with my case only guaranteed that she would benefit the most financially from someone who has very little money to begin with. An example would be that she filed a motion that should have taken less than a month to get completed. Several months and several thousand dollars later, it was finally finished. I would have to say that she is not a "zealous advocate for her client," which is what an attorney should be. Well, maybe she is if you have the "bank account" to back it up. I heard great things about her which is why I chose her to handle my case but her performance has been rather disappointing.

I first contracted her for my case, because I heard she was good, but after I sign a contract, she show no interest in it, and assigned other lawyer to take my case. All I wanted was a modification on Child support and Alimony because I lost my job. I payed more than $3,000. After more than 6 months and, I could not get a hearing and then she wanted $1,600 more before going to the hearing, which I did not have. She withdraw from the case and I end up loosing all that money.
