    • I do not recommend Brendan Guilford.
    • I hired Brendan 1-3 years ago.
    • Brendan handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired Brendan Guilford to represent me in my divorce at the suggestion of a man I was dating at the time. I have subsequently realized the man I was dating probably had links to my ex husband. There were no issues or arguments regarding our divorce agreement and he was only hired to make sure e paperwork was done properly. My ex husband did not have an attorney but met in Brendan's office with us to finalize paperwork before filing. During the entire meeting, Brendan and my ex husband were communicating non verbally as if they knew each other. I blew it off at the time but since then many problems have occurred, including my attorney not showing up at my divorce hearing. They sent some guy from Pennsylvania that I had never met who proceeded to talk to my ex husband as if they were in some sort of brotherhood. I am disgusted with the experience I have had in the Tampa Bay Area with attorneys. I truly believe the statement that the other attorney makes above when he says "worked together on matter". I highly doubt Mr. Guilford's ethics and question anyone who doesn't question his ethics.

    • Brendan handled my Child Custody matter.

    Spoke to me in regular language and didn't act like he was too good for me. Seemed like he cared more than my earlier lawyer.

    • I recommend Brendan Guilford.
    • I hired Brendan 1-3 years ago.
    • Brendan handled my Divorce & Separation matter.

    Brendan represented me during my recent Divorce proceedings. He kept me informed every step of the way, and explained the Divorce process as it progressed. He and I worked together for about 2 years from beginning to end. I was pleased overall with the outcome. As with most Divorces, it could have ended better, but certainly could have been worse. I believe having Mr. Guilford in my corner greatly improved the outcome. He is professional, knowledgeable, and provides prompt responses to any and all concerns.
    I would definitely recommend Mr. Guilford to others.

    • I recommend Brendan Guilford.

    I highly recommend Mr. Guilford if you're in need of a family lawyer. He's very thorough, I felt very confident with him through the entire process. He explained everything thoroughly to me and made certain I understood every step we were taking. He's hard working and cares for his clients. If ever I need help again, I'll certainly turn towards him.

    • I do not recommend Brendan Guilford.
    • I hired Brendan 1-3 years ago.
    • Brendan handled my Child Custody matter.

    Full of promises and full of inaccurate advice. This guy just took my money and almost sabotaged my case. Had to withdraw from the case after he lied to me and flip-flopped his point of view regarding the entire case. He took $5000 from me and after 6 months I am still sitting in the same position, meaning I could have done it without his legal help and have $5000 in my pocket. The entire firm does not represent the client but rather mediates to a mutually satisfying resolution which in reality is not satisfying at all.

      Lawyer Comment:

      What to say about an anonymous heckler? There is little that can be meaningfully expressed without harming my slanderer's privacy. Simply put, I reject his/her remarks without exception.

      Family law is often emotionally-trying for the parties involved. I understand that not every adult will have the same capacity to address their problems with others in a mature manner. This individual and I did not share a common perspective on how to best handle his/her family law matter. We parted ways. I did not anonymously seek him out to harm his/her reputation (unlike their action toward me), but such is life.

      I hope and have confidence that the Court will ultimately reach an appropriate decision in this case.

    Brendan was professional and realistic about all my questions and requests. I was very please with how he handled the process from the first phone call to a final letter he sent me thanking me for selecting his services.

    • I recommend Brendan Guilford.
    • I hired Brendan more than 3 years ago.

    Brendan's communication skills are excellent. He explains things to me in a way that I could understand. He is responsive and returns all my calls in a timely manner. The Service quality that he gives is like nothing I have experience before. I always felt as though my legal issue was his top priority. Overall working with this lawyer was worth the expense. :-)
