    • I do not recommend Rebecca Palmer.
    • I hired Rebecca more than 3 years ago.
    • Rebecca handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I retained Rebecca as my attorney for over a year in order to help seek additional time with my child during her school breaks. I was seeking a 50/50 split of her school vacation times or something close to it, which is standard in Florida. I consider myself to be a model father with no strikes against me so in theory it should be an easy thing to get. During the year or so that I retained her, Rebecca billed me over $40k for her services. We went before the judge several times on small matters and I would rate her preparedness before the court to be poor. I thought about getting a different attorney but I was heavily invested in Rebecca and decided to stick it out, since in theory it was an easy thing get. To make a long story short, after 9 months or so we finally got a trial date. Several months leading up to the trial she billed me significantly for “trial preparation”. Before the trial date, opposing sent a settlement offer. I felt it was a terrible offer and rejected it, letting Rebecca know I would prefer to go to trial. Rebecca insisted that I accept their offer. She wrote me a letter stating she would be forced to withdraw as counsel if I wanted to proceed to trial (even though she billed me heavily for several months for trial preparation). After she wrote the withdraw letter, I never saw Rebecca again, she was always too busy and only her assistant was available for me from then on. I called her office several times but I could only speak with her assistant, Jenny. Jenny informed me that the retainer contract I originally signed had a clause in it that allowed Rebecca to withdraw at any time for any reason. I was distraught and the thought of hiring another attorney and possibly missing another summer with my child was too much so I reluctantly agreed to opposings terrible offer. Jenny and I spent a week or so processing the final paperwork without Rebecca being present as she was too busy with other matters to see or talk with me. No, I wouldn’t recommend Rebecca as an attorney based off my experience.

  2. Uninterested lawyer.

    • Rebecca handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I like Rebecca personally. She did a good job at my mediation. However, leading up to it was extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I was the only person trying to move the matter to resolution. My ex-husband did not provide the financial information required by statute, and she recommended I go to mediation without that information. (I declined.) I went to the mediation with her but consulted two other lawyers in the course of the mediation to be sure I was covered, because my trust level was quite low by that time. Several administrative mistakes (including reverting to using my married name after the divorce was final, having used my maiden name throughout the proceedings), but the bills were always right on time. She mentioned a celebrity representation and that she wanted more of those, and my sense is that she doesn't care for day-to-day representations. I would not hire her again, nor would I recommend her to anyone.

  3. UNSATISFACTORY WORK! WAISTED OVER 100,000 FOR NOTHING!

    Horrible service. Passed me on to her intern. Been to trial and have been questioned well who is representing you because she is too busy for her clients.
