Review Carolyn Zisser
  • Thank you

    I want to express my sincere thanks to Carolyn Zisser for her expert legal advice on my divorce/custody case. Her professionalism and compassion were overshadowed only by her knowledge and skill as an attorney. When my case required me to have legal representation in another state she picked up the phone and seamlessly connected me with an equally impressive attorney on the west coast. It is a very difficult time for me and my family but Carolyn's kindness and guidance made all the difference. Thank you Carolyn!

    Carolyn will gain your trust and confidence in her as will her office staff. However be ware! I like to compare her to the people in the movie Devils Advocate. I went to her for a uncontested divorce of which should have been a rather easy and quick resolution. This drug on for months almost to eight months until my funds had been depleted. After Zimmer had depleted almost twenty thousand dollars of mine she then oh so kindly advised me oh how I should go about getting her more money. I finally wised up and dropped her. I then went to a new divorce attorney that only cost less then five thousand dollars to fully have my divorce completed.
    Zisser would have you believe that it only cost me five thousand dollars to complete my divorce because she had done all of the hard work. Lol simply NOT true. Beware and do your research! I hope this helps someone that maybe considering Carolyn Zisser

    Carolyn Schifreen Zisser’s response: “I invite you to contact me directly to discuss this further and come to some kind of mutually beneficial resolution. It doesn't appear that you have ever addressed these concerns directly with myself or any member of my firm since I cannot place you as a client of mine without further information. Nevertheless, I'm sure that we could work this out if you will contact me. My staff and I are dedicated to our clients and are continually working to enhance the qualify of our communication with our clients, and in most cases, our client are grateful and happy with the work that we do and the results obtained for them. Unfortunately, we cannot anticipate how even a seemingly simple case will unfold nor can we ensure that the results will always be exactly what the client wants. I look forward to having an opportunity to resolve this with you.”

    I spent many hours searching for the right lawyer. It was extremely important I have someone with my best interests at heart. A temporary hearing was held recently. Ms. Zisser was very professional and extremely well prepared. She had prepared me to feel comfortable to answer questions I would be asked. I was impressed with even the smallest detail being covered. She brought expert witnesses and copies of documents prepared to validate the facts of the case to the court. It was a successful hearing for me thanks to the thoroughness of my lawyer and her wonderful staff of professionals.

  • Beyond divorce

    I went to Carolyn to have a finalized divorce that I was not comfortable with modified. Not only did she help me with that issue resulting in a much more favorable outcome, she gave me some great advice. I was not in the best of places and she offered advice, simple, but has helped me then and still. It was to eliminate the word should from my vocabulary as there is nothing that can be done about the past, etc. Very refreshing to find a lawyer who does more than offer strictly legal advice.

    we were charged 80,000.00 more than we expected to pay. the other attorney just had there way with us. she kept the judge mad at her all the time. the main problem was she let the other attorney get away with hearsay and lies. we have filed a complaint against her in tallahassee. we lost every thing.
    after 100.000.00 we informed her that we could not get anymore money, she said that we could get the money somewhere. she put a lien on our house for 40,000.00

    Carolyn Schifreen Zisser’s response: “Your feedback is important to me. My office has reached out to you many times to try to resolve this matter without success. After more than 40 years in a successful family law practice, it is still troublesome in instances such as this when the opposing party or family member causes an escalation of litigation resulting in greater expense for our client. Please know that I value all of my clients, and I invite you to contact me so that we can find a resolution.”
  • Strong Recommendation for Carolyn Zisser

    Carolyn Zisser was extremely knowledgeable on all the key financial issues which were of concern to me such as retirement benefits, investments, and jointly held property. She has extensive experience which benefits my case in many ways - such as being quick to secure key resources in the event further due diligence was required, to recommend wording which gave legal options in the event the parties in the divorce could not agree on the selling price for jointly owned property, etc. She is client focused, but fair and just for both parties, and works extremely quickly to bring issues to closure with the minimum effort required. She more than compensated for her fees on the basis of specific language put into the divorce decree as well as advice on handling of retirement assets throughout the process.
