Wendi is an amazing attorney. She is honest, doesn't pull any nonsense and gives 110%. She does not fold under difficult cases, and has the knowledge and experience to tackle even the most hopeless problems (like mine) and she won't make any promises she can't keep. She's been nothing short of a miracle worker and I have, and will continue to refer anyone I know to her for legal advice.

I highly recommend Wendi Hall Gonzales PA as the best attorney I have ever had. I have used Wendi as my attorney for over twelve years for a few different issues, as well and referred multiple happy customers to her. The first time I met Wendi, I was going through a very difficult divorce and my ex was abusive to my children, my prior lawyer had given me very bad advice and basically took my money with bad results. I found Wendi through a friend and began the process of protecting my children from further abuse. Wendi was kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, but most of all tough in and out of the court room. Wendi didn’t let my kids become another statistic of where the system fails to protect children from abuse. Wendi went above and beyond to protect my kids and gave them a voice where another attorney had failed them. It was not an easy process, but Wendi explained every detail to me and gave me the confidence I needed to protect my children and complete my divorce. Wendi is not just my attorney, she has become my friend and I trust her. How many Lawyers have you ever had, that you can say you trust? I endorse Wendi Hall Gonzales PA as the best attorney you will find in Pinellas/Pasco Florida!

Wendi is hands down the one attorney that you want on your side while going through a divorce. She is highly motivated and has great knowledge in the divorce field. I would recommend her to anyone going through marital issues and will use her in the future.

Through business association, I became aware of Wendi’s reputation as a highly respected, credible and aggressive attorney.
When I was the victim of a crime, I was able to witness her expertise in action. I was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of a major hotel while out of town on a business trip. It was a traumatic experience for me and became even worse when I learned from the police that guests were routinely robbed in that parking lot. I asked the hotel management to reimburse me for my actual losses which only included cash and the contents of my purse (a few hundred dollars). They declined, assuring me it was an isolated incident that never happened before, therefore they were not responsible. I knew that to be untrue from talking to the police and felt that the hotel had demonstrated a gross lack of concern for my wellbeing. I contacted Wendi Hall-Gonzalez.
Wendi was extremely compassionate, clearly had my best interest in mind, and was very determined to force the hotel not only to reimburse me for my losses, but to pay for their lack of security and concern for their guests’ safety. I did nothing further, expecting at some point to get a check for a few hundred dollars. Within a few days, Wendi contacted me and stated that the hotel was willing to pay me $6000 (they started with an offer much lower which Wendi refused to accept and negotiated upwards). Wendi also informed me that if I wished to pursue the matter in court, the award could be substantially higher. I was so thrilled at what she had already achieved, I accepted the offer. I am grateful for what she did for me.
I have utilized Wendi's expertise over the years, and will continue to turn to her for legal matters. I know firsthand that she gets the job done.
I have also referred my family, friends and business associates to Wendi, particularly for family law matters, which is her expertise. Wendi is highly professional, knowledgeable, and action oriented. She will have your best interest in mind and will work aggressively to achieve the greatest possible outcome for you. She is also a very pleasant person and easy to talk to, which is important when experiencing stressful issues that require legal counsel.

I was lost when I was served with divorce papers and a close friend recommended Wendi telling me that she was the best! I agree! My children and I were cut off and left with nothing, and she immediately contacted his attorney and arranged for my husband to restore my funds. From that day, she was on my case and made the divorce process much easier. Here assistant made sure that I was able to be in contact with Wendi or receive a message back from her, most times within hours, if not, by the next day. After my original divorce, I had issues with child support and I immediately called her assistant and Wendi was on the case. Their office treats you like one of the family, not just a client.

The process of a divorce is not easy one. My first meeting with Wendi L. Hall-Gonzales was my 3rd attorney interview. I immediately felt comfortable and confident she was going to guide me safely through this journey. I talked, she patiently listened and together we determined a path of action. I confidently made my decision to have Wendi represent me.
Throughout the process, I worked with both Wendi and her assistant, Dallas. The many stages of fact gathering, providing documentation, creating filings and reviewing activity with Dallas was both simple and concise. Her knowledge and support provided the guidance I needed to get things done.
My divorce is final now, and that was only able to come to a close based on my trust in them and their trust in me. I was treated like a person, not just a client on paper.
I was extremely satisfied with Wendi L Hall-Gonzales and recommend her services to others.

Dallas sat down with me and took my info and promised to talk to wendy and get back with me.She scribbled my info illegably on a scratch pad that didnt look legable, got a bad feeling. No call back. Left three voice mails and left phone and my questions, but it was friday, so I got a call monday from Dallas, she apologized. She asked for my questions and phone number and promised wendy would call that day. At that point I knew this was a waste of time. She called me and asked for my number! My voicemails stated that if you dont want to do this just let me know! I can't keep missing work and waisting time. It's wednesday now and never got a call. Never talked to Wendy, maybe she's ok, maybe not.

Attorney Hall-Gonzales and her staff were compassionate to my situation and were able to immediately begin work, and keep me continually informed. She was able to accomplish within months what other;s were unable to accomplish in years regarding locating and filing suit against my former husband. I would highly recommend Wendi Hall-Gonzales to anyone who needs assistance with a divorce or child support problem.
