Divorce 2012
Mr. Muriello was compassionate and reasonable on how to get an abusive spouse to back off and work with the legal steps needed to free myself from the broken marriage. It's been a decade and I am still very thankful.

The best law firm around!
Gerry Muriello was brilliant in his representation of me. He is very intelligent and was forceful when the situation called for it (court hearings or negotiations), but is also very thoughtful and compassionate. Mr. Muriello is honest, trustworthy and very straight forward. In unvarnished truth, he will tell you exactly where you stand and what direction you should go. He has tenacity coupled with a degree of tenderness but never losing sight of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for his client. He is always on top of the game and never misses a deadline. His administrative assistant J.D. is amazing, and very knowledgeable. She was beyond generous towards me with her time and thoughts towards my case. While working with Mr. Muriello, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong. I believe that he truly understood my issue and the intricacies involved. I would highly recommend Gerry to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Gerry fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thanks guys!!!

Integrity, Honesty, Truth
Gerry was very honest and upfront during my divorce case, which involved 2 kids. He was very involved in their well being, and helped me understand the process in which we must follow, to pursue the most sound decisions on their, and my behalf. Gerry also was a calming voice in times of high stress. I would recommend him over every other attorney I have ever retained. I plan on using Gerry again in the near future. You cant go wrong with his honesty and integrity, which I am sorry to say, is absent in many attorneys today.

Thanks Gerry!
Working with Fox and Muriello was a great experience, and I am glad that I chose them to represent me. Throughout the process, Kelly kept me informed constantly and answered any questions that I had. The results were just what we wanted when the process was finished. Would defintely recommened Gerard to anyone thinking about hiring him, and I will be using his services if I need to in the future.

Daytona lawyer that is heads above the rest
Gerard Muriello is not your average lawyer: he is friendly, compassionate, loyal, and intelligent. He handled my legal matter in Palm Coast, Florida in a helpful and experienced way.

Attorney Review
Gerry handled some divorce/child support/visitation matters for us. He did an excellent job of keeping in touch with the opposing attorney and kept us informed about where we were in the situation. I would not hesitate to use his services again in any future matters.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2011.

Public Reprimand issued in FL, 2011
updated on 06/19/2012

Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Gerard's comment: “I was reprimanded for misconduct by The Florida Bar for failing to comply with one of the terms of my admission. This violation was in no way related to the practice of law. I have always represented my clients with competence, caring, and compassion. Please refer to the Client Reviews and Attorney Endorsements here on my profile, and you will see that I am well respected by those I have represented as well as by collegues in the community.”

Gerry sees the problems and works to resolve them. I highly recommend Gerry for any Divroce or Child Custody issue."
