3.5 stars 8 totalReview Carolyn Zisser

I hired Carolyn Zisser to represent me in an extremely high conflict divorce. She came highly recommended to me, but at the same time, I was warned of her fees. I decided to retain her despite the many different comments I heard about her exorbitant fees. She appeared very knowledgeable and sincere when I initially met her. After two years of taking a circuitous route and charging me close to $200,000.00, I severed my services with Mrs. Zisser. I was financially and emotionally exhausted, and no where near divorced. My advice is please listen to those who retained her. Talk to her peers. Do your homework. As one attorney stated, 'Caroly Zisser's reputation is her worst advertising.'

Words can't express the joy and happiness of how Ms. Zisser settled my case while dealing with an extremely difficult spouse. Ms. Zisser never lost her calmness or composure and kept everything on the issue at hand which was obtaining a good settlement for me. My settlement was not good it was OUTSTANDING! Ms. Zisser truly cared about the outcome of the case, but also about me as a person. Very detailed + Extreme Knowledgeable of Family Law = Outstanding Settlement. From previous posts I read about financial draining. My response is, you get what you pay for and buyer beware of other attorney's. Yes there were some extras, but in the end the investment paid off more than the cost. Don't be penny contentious and dollar foolish. Ms. Zisser is not alone in her success. Her staff should be recognized as well. They work tirelessly behind the scenes making everything look seamless and this just doesn't happen per chance. I can't thank Ms. Zisser and her entire team for making an extremely stressful situation less painful for me. You people are the best!

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

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.

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 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.
