Lawrence Marraffino was not only professional, but he was very organized and extremely helpful. Any parent having to face divorce and the matters that follow regarding our children experience a high amount of anxiety. After speaking with Marraffino, I felt confident that I had completed the steps needed in order to pursue my case. Marraffino was honest about the quality of my documents, and very thorough in regards to little missing details. He made great recommendations in what the judge is looking for and highlighted key terms that I should deliver at my hearing. This is a wonderful service, and I would highly recommend this lawyer to review your documents.

I have consulted Lawrence from Avvo for a bankruptcy related issue and he was very professional and efficient enough to provide valueble information in the short call I had. He came straight to the point and explained the situations and the next step options that I have. I would recommend him highly and would seek his services if needed in future without doubt.

Mr. Marrafino called me within minutes of paying the Avvo fee. I had my questions ready. He answered every question and helped me with important issues to my existing case. I could not have proceeded properly without his help. Thank you so much Mr. Marrafino and Avvo.
This was one of the most clear and useful legal conversation I have had.
I'm a single mother, small businesses owner from a foreign country and had absolutely no acknowledge of florida corp law. Have been bullied by my partner's attorney and almost agreed to walk away from the business I spent 4 year building. Lawrence was patient and used a simple vocabulary to explain my situation and lay down my opinions.
As a first timer at Avvo I have to say I am very satisfied and will definitely continue with my membership!
Thank you Avvo and THANK YOU Lary for your time!

Retaining Mr. Marraffino for dissolution of my marriage was the best decision i took. He is extremely experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Everyone at his office is extremely friendly and quick with responding to any query and only i know i had a new one, every other day. But i always felt properly attended. I would recommend Mr. Marraffino to anyone who is sailing in the same boat as i was. Thank you Mr. Marraffino once again for everything.

Mr. Marraffino has been the best through both personal injury and family law cases i have had with him. He was patient and made me feel like family rather than some client. If i needed anything at all he was there. If i panicked at all, he was there. I have never met an attorney that had so much of a heart for his clients. If anyone is looking for an attorney that will be there for you and is compassionate and sincere, I would choose him in a heartbeat.

I had a fairly simple divorce being no major disputes or property. However, my case was complicated due to having an additional case connected to my divorce of domestic violence. Domestic violence is a very complex and complicated case for victim's and the legal system. I had a lawyer prior to Mr. Marraffino located here in Gainesville but with my domestic violence case pending I was turned away. When I went to Mr. Marraffino's office I had little hope of getting a lawyer that was willing to take my case. After the consultation Mr. Marraffino stepped up and took my case despite domestic violence case. Throughout the process Mr. Marraffino and his staff have been more than supportive during such a difficult time. Because of the domestic violence case my divorce was drawn out for a long period of time which was very frustrating and at times did not make a bit of sense to me. Mr. Marriffino and his staff were very knowledgeable and had no problems taking the time to educate me when I was so frustrated. This whole process has been a learning experience that I am so grateful to have learned it while having Mr. Marriffino as my lawyer. There are not enough words to express the level of integrity, knowledge, honesty, & compassion that Mr. Marriffino and his staff have for not only their clients but the community as well. These kind of qualities that are not seen enough in today's world. I would recommend this dedicated team of professional's to anyone that is in need of a lawyer. Their standards are in my mind above the rest and their work goes beyond words. I could never say enough about Mr. Marraffino and his team.

I came to Mr. Marraffino's office looking for help. I had a horrible lawyer before him and I was scared I had no one on my side. My ex-husband filed for divorce and was seeking full custody of our daughter. My previous lawyer told me I was getting 50/50 and there was nothing I could do about it. She would tell me to "shut up" when I spoke and criticize me every time she spoke to me. I came into Mr. Marraffino's office looking for someone who could see I was a struggling mother and wanted nothing more than to have my child with me. After my first visit with him I was convinced, there are good people out there who are going to help you keep your daughter. He made me feel calm and helped me realize I didn't deserve the abuse I was given from my ex-husband. Mr. Marraffino does so much more than just represent you in court..he takes your case personal and makes you feel like your case is the only one that matters. I had a hearing, mediation, a deposition and trial with my ex-husband. Before each one Mr. Marraffino saw me the day before and morning of. Mr. Marraffino and his wife Ellen always calmed me down. They helped me see my strength and helped me take on all my challenges with my ex-husband. Divorce and child custody is absolutely miserable. You feel like your whole life is spinning and there's no way to stop it. But with Mr. Marraffino behind you you'll get through it. I don't know where I would be right now if it wasn't for him and Ellen. During my hearing and trial Ellen stayed beside me the whole time. She would write me notes, tell me I was doing great and make me feel as though I was the strongest person in the room. I was emotionally abused by my ex-husband for years. He scares me and just the thought of him makes me uneasy. With Ellen there I was able to look him in the eyes and have no fear. She has a way of helping to find your inner courage. I walked away from court with mostly everything I asked for. If it wasn't for Mr. Marraffino, that wouldn't have happened. If you're looking for an attorney who cares and wants to win, you've found your guy.
