I started my case with a different attorney. But that relationship didn't last. I like to be on top of things and stay as informed as much as I can. I do this by asking a lot of questions. It appeared my previous attorney could not deal with me because of that.
I found Brenda Drake thru the AVVO website. We spoke briefly, mainly to explain my case. I felt comfortable with her over the phone and shortly after I decided I would hire her. I have absolutely no regrets. Having had the negative experience with the other attorney, Brenda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is on top of her stuff. She replied promptly to my many, many emails. She is open and honest with you, even if that means relaying something you don't want to hear. She stays professional and is very affordable.
My case reached a resolution I was comfortable with and I would definitely hire again if future issues arise.
Many thanks Brenda!

Previously I was with another law firm for my paternity case and for child support in 2011. Brenda started off as my counsel in that matter. in the middle of the case I received notice I was going to be represented by someone new. I found out Brenda was no longer with the firm I had hired. When I had hired the law firm I met Brenda and felt very comfortable with her. She was honest, trustworthy, reliable, punctual, and thorough. Once she left the firm my case became a nightmare. The new counsel was unprofessional and not trustworthy. There was several incidents of misconduct. I was stuck using the firm because I didn’t have the money to pay a retainer for another lawyer. My charges became extensive and a lot more than I was told. The entire time I wanted to be represented by Brenda, but was stuck in a horrible situation. The case was settled, but I continued the nightmare of the aftermath that followed relating to the misconduct. 2 yrs later I decided to get married, but would have to relocate due to military orders my fiancé received. I now had to go through the submission of a petition to relocate with my child out of Florida. I started the process on my own, but shortly realized that I was dealing with military laws because my son’s father was stationed overseas. I knew I had to seek legal counsel, but refused to go back to the firm who I originated with. I contacted several firms and was quoted an amount that was ridiculous. So I search for Brenda because of how great I felt with her and how honest she is. Once I got in contact with her we sat down and discussed everything in detail. When she gave me her price I was in shock at how reasonable it was. In the end I got everything I requested, I had absolutely no surprises, and no false expectations. I cannot even express how great it felt to find her and have her represent me. She was everything a great lawyer is. I even referred a family member to her and if anything else arises, I will definitely be contacting Brenda.

I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Drake is a hard working, intelligent attorney who will fight the state as hard as she can to make sure that your rights are protected. She will make sure you understand the process each step of the way. You can never go wrong by hiring her.

Brenda Drake is a great advocate for her clients. She is also a big contributor to the Avvo Legal Community. I have read and agreed with many of her answers. I endorse this lawyer because of her demonstrated leadership skills, knowledge of the criminal justice system and her ability to communicate that knowledge in a clear and understandable manner.
