Probate and deeds
I was in need of a lawyer to handle my probate and deeds case. I went to Rose because of the great reviews she had to see if she would provide the same great service to me and my family. Rose lived up to the hype. I received great service in a timely manner. I also received an affordable rate. Rose was very understanding of my case and made me feel like she truly cared to help. I highly recommend her and will be using her in the future should I need any lawyer assistance.

COMPASSIONATE, SINCERE, INTELLIGENT & PROFESSIONAL
If you are looking for the best lawyer in the state of Fl., then you have found her in Live Oak. Last year, I had an unfortunate life event. My father passed away and 3 weeks later, my brother unexpectedly passed away. To say the least, I was an emotional wreck. It was then that my husband took control of the situation and went searching for an attorney 250 miles away from where we live. First off, no one in Live Oak would even talk to us w/o a consulting fee… Who does that! Well, I can tell you that Rosie doesn’t!!! As soon as we explained our situation to Rosie, you could feel her compassion and sincerity for our loss. We immediately knew we had the right person/lawyer. A professional person that express true empathy for families that are suffering in grief, is a rare find and Rosie is that person. We immediately knew we had the right Lawyer!!! Rosie accepted the case and went to work immediately. She sent us information on the sequence of events that would occur and informed us of our responsibilities but not to worry because she will be there to help us through it. I couldn’t believe how accurate she was! She was Incredible! This was a complicated case, at least in our opinion and at no point were we ever concerned or wondered what was happening. She just made everything very simple for us! She is truly an exceptional lawyer and better yet, an amazing person, inside and out!!! A true diamond in the ruff! Thanks for everything Rosie!!!

I highly recommend her.

The Best Lawyer in Lake City Hands Down
Being a real estate professional, I have struggled finding an upfront, direct lawyer to get the job done. I had a client under contract and a probate issue came up with closing only two weeks out. Rose Chauncey came and saved the deal! She is truly the best. I will be bringing all my deals to Rose. ***Highly Recommend***

Amazing support and attention to detail
Handling estate issues can be a daunting task when a relative passes away. In my case, I lived many states away and didn't have any experience with these kind of issues. I also had a new baby which left me with little time and feeling overwhelmed. Rose Chauncey went above and beyond to not only walk me through the process, but to also handle every little detail. She even went above and beyond by doing some of the leg work to fulfill some of the estate needs in town since I couldn't travel. She was also very quick to respond to any questions I had or if I needed some advice on how to do something. The overall experience was amazing. I WISH she lived in my town/state so she could handle ALL of my legal needs! She was so easy and friendly to work with and completely thorough and detail-oriented.

exceeded expectations !!!!
This Lawyer was recommended to us by a friend of mine in the Estate/Probate area. She exceeded our expectations and fulfilled our outcome. She kept us in the loop with phone calls and meetings. She listened to our concerns and guided us to our destination. We are now looking to have her do our will. She is very insightful in her area and very good at foreseeing outcomes of responding. Thank you Rose Decker Chauncey for representing us !!!

Final preparations
Mrs. Chauncey advised us concerning final preparations for my mother who was in a nursing home. She told us how to spend money in ways that were acceptable if Medicaid had been necessary. She was a tremendous help during a difficult time.

Guardianship and Probate
Rosie did an excellent job of sorting through 7 years of information to present my case to the court in an organized and efficient manner. Through her knowledge of wills, guardenship issues, and probate, Rosie resolved this seemingling insurmountable problem in a timely manner. Her kind and encouraging words were greatly appreciated as well.

Wonderful Experience
Rose Chauncey handled the expungement of my felony charges in Florida. She was very patient, provided me all the documentation needed, and did a wonderful job handling my pestering emails. She is very personable and I would suggest her to any of my friends or family.

Incredible attorney
Mrs. Chauncey helped me tremendously with my legal matter.

I knew I was in good hands and had someone beyond capable assisting me. I am so grateful for the favorable resolution she achieved for me and would entrust any legal matter to her.
