    I have known Ms. Palma for over 10 years. I have had multiple cases against her and also collaborated with her as co-counsel on a high-conflict custody modification last year. Ms. Palma is dedicated, intelligent, thorough, thoughtful, and uses a balanced approach. She is an excellent trial attorney and a strong advocate for her clients. I highly recommend her.

  • Mindi Beth Lasley

    I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Palma for several years and she is always a zealous advocate for her clients. Not only is Ms. Palma quick on her feet in court, but she meticulously examines the evidence of each case, is extremely knowledgeable and well prepared of every aspect of the law and facts of her cases and knows how to present them to the court while applying proper courtroom technique. Ms. Palma is one of the most dignified and professional attorneys in the Tampa Bay family law community. She diligently prepares her clients for all hearings, is more than prepared for all aspects of her clients' cases and applicable laws and legal arguments in her hearings, and genuinely cares about her clients and their families. Ms. Palma is definitely the attorney to hire for compassionate, knowledgeable and zealous representation and you can rest assured you will always be treated with dignity.
