About Me

Ms. Real has practiced family law for over three decades at the same Hyde Park location in Tampa, Florida. She is an experienced litigator and a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator.

Catherine W. Real, P.A. is a Tampa based, Florida Family Law firm which provides family law services statewide. The majority of its clients reside in Central Florida, i.e., Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, Sarasota and Orange Counties. But the firm has practiced as far south as Key West and as far north as Pensacola, Florida. The firm not only represents clients who reside in Florida but in many other states nationwide.

Family law, as practiced by Catherine W. Real, P.A., addresses all of a client’s concerns when pursuing a divorce: the division of property, child custody, child support, visitation, and alimony. As a Supreme Court Certified mediator, Catherine Real seeks first to settle the case through mediation. If mediation cannot resolve the issues, the trial skills of the attorneys in the firm are brought into play.

As a well known Tampa, Florida divorce lawyer, Catherine Real not only provides the legal advice and counsel expected of an experienced divorce lawyer, she also collaborates with other professionals such as financial advisors, CPAs, mental health counselors, and physicians to provide her clients with all of the services needed to survive their challenging times. Few firms take appeals from orders entered by family law judges. Ms. Real accepts referrals of appeals from many Florida family law attorneys
