Hire the best, Mr. Mark Troum
You will never second guess hiring Mark Troum to be your family law lawyer. He is a straight shooter. His focus is to help you put aside your emotions so you can make smart decisions about a reasonable long term parenting plan. He and his staff(Lisa and Julie) will work tirelessly, effectively and efficiently to get you the best possible results. They will keep you informed of what is happening every step of the way. They are always available to answer questions and assist you in any way. You can trust Mr. Troum's strategy implicitly. He knows precisely what evidence matters in court and his attention to those details is impeccable. His expert witnesses are second to none and money well spent. His team truly fights to protect your (parental) rights while keeping your child's best interests at heart. The outcome of our case was truly a miracle. Mr. Troum got me everything I wanted and then some.

Honest and Realistic
I consulted with 9 attorneys prior to hiring Mr. Troum and his team. Although he was the most expensive, I knew he was the best choice. I loved the fact that he was realistic in setting expectations and I didn't feel like he was "selling me" on choosing him. Mark and his team did exactly what they said they would do from the consult, to hiring him, to resolving my divorce in mediation. I hired him in 2017 and I thank God I chose him as my attorney. Mark and his team is like taking a sword to a knife fight.

Secured my financial future!
Mr. Troum and his caring and effective team guided me toward a successful outcome and financial future. After 15 years of marriage I was suddenly told by my now ex-husband that he wanted a divorce. I was nervous and unsure what I needed to do. Mr. Troum put me at ease with his knowledge of the law. He was compassionate & understanding knowing what I was going through. I would highly recommend Mr. Troum and his wonderful staff.

Professional Results with a Personal Approach - Troum Law
The anxiety that comes as a result of legal issues, such as my divorce, can sometimes seem as if you are in it all alone. I researched, just as some of you might be, trying to find just the right law firm. I wanted to be listened to, know all my options and be assured that the firm I chose was REALLY on my side. From the time I first went to the Troum Law office in Maitland, I knew I was in good hands. Throughout the entire process of the divorce (which went MUCH faster than anticipated) I was made to feel as if I was the only client this firm was handling! It was amazing...their personal touch was over the top. Mr. Troum handled my case very professionally and the entire staff was extremely caring and ALWAYS there for me, no matter what I needed to know or ask. In fact, they encouraged it. If you want the attention that you know your case needs and the expertise to see it through, look no further. The Troum Law Firm is there for you; they were for me.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST !
I retained Mr. Troum to represent me in a divorce case. He was fair and honest from day one. Everything was laid out very clearly and with empathy for my situation. Though I didn't feel so good about myself, he encouraged me to keep my head up; at the same time he was honest and upfront regarding my case. Not only did he resolve my case in an extremely short time, but what was most impressive was his great legal advice (and knowledge) and his negotiating skills during the mediation process...which was a success. His staff is personable and are ALWAYS there when you need them. You will never have to "wonder" what is going on with your case; in fact, you are encouraged to ask about anything you don't understand. I would retain him again without hesitation. Mr. Troum is a superb attorney and is everything that most lawyers aren't....when you get him....you get the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you.....for caring and helping me to go forward in my life.

Honest, Experienced and Knowledgeable
This summer life threw me a curve ball and I needed to relocate with my daughter. Finding a lawyer to help me through this process was very overwhelming. Every lawyer I went to gave me different reasons why they could "win". Mark Troum was different. He was completely honest up front. He laid out the facts and made me feel comfortable about making such a big decision. He didn't pressure me to retain him right away, he encouraged me to think about it and get back to him. Although in trial with other clients while fighting my case, Mr. Troum and his staff never made me feel rushed. They always took the time to talk me though everything and made sure I understood. He and his staff were also very conscious of expenses and made sure that they did everything they could to make sure that my money was not wasted. They even gave me a paper on who to call/email so I could save money. Although I hope to never need his services again, if I do need legal advice, or to hire a lawyer, Mr. Troum will always be the first person I call. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and very straight forward!

If you would like someone effective knowledgeable and responsive Try Mr. Troum and his team.
After a few days of research i decided to give Mr. Troum my case. i am very happy that i did, even though there were answers that i may not have liked, they were truthful and correct. i appreciated him and his team for not running the clock as many attorneys do. Mr. Troum was ready to move and let me be very involved to save money where i could. He has a great team and they are very thoughtful and on point with their procedures. Divorces are never easy and now that i have gone through one i feel much better that it was with Mr. Troums firm. i highly recommend...

Dedicated and Passionate Attorney
I have been a client now with attorney Mark Troum for over 3 years, Not only has he litigated an order of protection on behalf of my children, but he is handling my divorce. I would like to say this about Mark. He is a true gem of knowledge when it comes to the legal system and how the court works. Attorney Mark Troum has been nothing but fair and honest with me on every aspect of both my divorce and my injunction process. He has won appeals on my cases as well as trying to keep the costs down for me when the opposing council was filing numerous outlandish motions . I have recommended attorney Mark Troum as well as continue to recommend him to anyone who wants a fair, just, determined, personal, great attorney!!

A very good lawyer with a very good team supporting him. They helped me find closure.
I never expected to be going through a divorce; yet when that bomb was dropped upon me, I knew that I had to research the very best advisor that I could find. Mark and his team proved to be just that. I always felt like he provided good advice and along the way of what was such a nightmare he became a friend. There is no happy ending in divorce; however, there are new beginnings. I would offer my whole hearted recommendation of Mark and his team. I always felt like I had a team on my side helping me navigate through a horrible situation. No one wins but I have learned that you survive and learn. Mark gave good advice, was a good ally and enabled me to move forward with peace.

Hands down, best divorce attorney
After working with Mr. Troum for well over a year now, I cannot say anything but wonderful things about him and his staff. Mr. Troum recently helped me get through a very difficult and long drawn out divorce case, which also included a relocation with kids to another state. In this specific case, the other party was extremely hard to deal with but Mr. Troum remained persistent and refused to allow him to get away with all of his wrongdoings. I am beyond pleased with the outcome of my divorce and have and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney. His staff was always very helpful in explaining things to me, Mr. Troum always made himself available, and there was never a time when I didn't know or understand what was happening with my case. After over a year and a half of working with The Troum Law Firm, I am happy to say that the outcome of my case was better than what I expected. For as brutal as the entire divorce process is..... Mr. Troum and his staff walked me through every single step of it and continued to fight until he got us exactly what my children and I deserved.

Experienced and Honest Attorney
I was very satisfied with Mr. Troum's handling of my divorce case. My former spouse was not willing to negotiate with me and continued to drive our case towards a full trial. Mr. Troum kept me informed, was very responsive, trustworthy, and honest through the process. He was not only able to keep us from going to trial, but he helped me work out a fair settlement even though my ex was being difficult to deal with. Mr. Troum's years of experience put me at ease, knowing what to expect evey step of the way. I would definitely recommend him to others looking for a calm, professional, and experienced attorney.

Many thanks!
Divorce is difficult and very trying at times. This attorney has proven himself to be someone I could trust. His integrity and knowledge of the law are exceptional. Mr. Troum and his staff genuinely cared about my situation. Many thanks for helping me throughout the entire divorce process. This attorney comes highly recommended!

Very professional, extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and honest. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Mr. Troum represented me during my divorce, which was very emotional for me. My ex and opposing counsel were adamant on making things as difficult as possible. Mr. Troum didn’t let that stop him. He fought for what was right and was always thoroughly prepared, extremely knowledgeable, and looked out for my best interest. Anyone considering retaining Mr. Troum as an attorney will not be disappointed. Also, Mr. Troum’s support staff is outstanding! I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with.

Excellent, great and highly recommended attorney !!!!
I normally never take the time to write out a review on anything, but I had to in pertaining to attorney Mark Troum. I have never experienced such a professional lawyer. Not only is he professional, knowledeable and fights hard to get the right outcome for his clients, but is personal and caring. He takes your case as if it is his own. I hired Mark to represent me in a domestic viloence case, where he fought hard and won. He is responsive to his clients needs. I have recommended him to friends and family and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent attorney.

Very Helpful and Straight to the point!
Mark and The Troum Law Firm was very helpful in my child support proceeding, the staff was great to work with. Mark made sure my concerns were brought up to DOR/Child support, he worked towards a happy median between the two parties. Mark is recognized in the courthouse, which shows his years of experience.

Poor
On 1-27-2017 I made an appointment to get legal counseling from Mr Troum at the cost of $100 dollars for orientation on modifying my visitation Rights on a 2 year old case that went to trial. Upon my arrival Mr Troum escorted My wife and myself to his conference room SUBSEQUENTLY and IMMEDIATELY Mr . Troum began IMPULSIVELY to elaborate on a long "UNCOMFORTABLE DISSERTATION "about "Client Privacy "because my New wife and I were together and she was a third party of Conflict . "What he was saying was True but the problem was in the manner he handled the situation wasn't PROFESSIONAL at all , something so trivial that could of been so simple as to politely address the situation about client privacy in a different manner ,prior to escorting us to his conference room he could not accomplish instead I was hammered for 10 min or perhaps longer about client privacy at which I felt Nauseou and dizzy . At that point I lost track as to why I was there ". Mr Troum stated that normally other attorney would of kick the person out. """ like he was using other Attotney as an excuse to camflouge what he would do and has done perhaps in the past himself to other prospectful clients My ethical advice is perhaps you should advice the person prior to entering the conference that you can't go in with a third party like my better half who is my right hand partner because of the best interests for client privilege sounds more professional than to hammer the person in a discourse of client privilege . As a father I went their for legal advice to see what can be done Mr Troum stated in that I was angry and in response I stated to him that he was confusing anger for my frustration two different things I felt Mr Troum was passing judgement based on his own actions . The only thing I learned as a buisness owner in Seminole county about this situation was that I wasn't going to weary my clients with crass and gibberish talk Anymore thank you
