Posted by Gina Nicole, a Child Support client,
I would not recommend Mr. Ventura EVER! I hired Mr. Ventura to handle a child support issue. I was very clear upon hiring him and giving him my retainer as to what my expectations were. Mr. Ventura allowed 11 months to pass without filing a single motion. By the time he finally filed the motions that I paid him to file initially, so much time had passed that he forgot about me and my case. I was constantly having to come back in for meetings to explain the same situation over and over (which I was billed for) two years past before I walked into a court room.
Long story short. Mr. Ventura did alot of "busy" work with no results at all. I did not get the representation that I was promised. I was not kept in the loop as to my case. He was a good talker and appeared knowledgeable while in court but the moment you step out of the court room he forgets who you are and what your case is about. I was charged over $10,000 for a modification of child support. I never got the modification while working with Mr. Ventura for two years. I finally hired a new attorney and all of my issues were resolved within three months for 1/3 of what Mr. Ventura billed me. Don't give this man your money unless you have plenty of money to blow right out the window!

I initially retained Mr. Ventura in 2005 for family law issues, to include the basics (monies, time-share, responsibilities, etc.). Those issues were handled quickly and aggressively. Since my initial retainer of services in 2005, I have had to call upon his experience a few more times for minor issues that arose, each ending successfully.
I just recently finished an extremely acrimonious time sharing dispute and Jerry was with me every step of the way. Although I was not the only case Mr. Ventura had on his calendar, I was always treated and responded to as a priority. As a client, we tend to lead by emotions. Mr. Ventura, through his explanations and suggestions, enabled me to leave my emotions at the door and deal with the facts.
An attorney/client relationship is one that should have respect and trust, which I what I experienced with Jerry Ventura's office and his staff. His advice, ethics and professionalism makes him the top family law attorney in south Florida.
