My wife and I were both very pleased with the professionalism of Gary, and the empathy he showed during our first meeting has continued through the whole process. He is always quick to respond to any question by phone, email or in person. He spends the time to explain things very clearly.
He was able to step in during a bad situation and help us get our quality of life back. We are both very happy with having Gary Israel as our lawyer. He is very knowledgeable with Florida law and we would definitely utilize Gary again.

I have hired Mr. Israel many of times over the course of 5 years. He has always been prompt in getting back to me if not immediately available and extremely professional in handling my case(s). I have never had any complaints about Gary personally or professionally and would highly recommend him if you are looking for a highly competent and professional attorney.

I am a mother of four fighting an uphill battle to be a part of my children’s lives. Two years ago, I hired Mr. Israel to handle my case. With Mr. Israel’s knowledge of Florida Law and his trial experience, Mr. Israel has given me peace of mind navigating through a high conflict custody battle.
Mr. Israel has been very quick to respond to any question I’ve had throughout this process. He was completely honest with me and saved me a lot of money not spending time on issues that arise but have no legal relevance to the outcome of my case.
Mr. Israel is attentive, out spoken, and overall an excellent lawyer. If you are looking for an amazingly knowledgeable and competent attorney, I would highly recommend Mr. Israel.

As a doctor practicing in a highly litigious society, I am often confronted by lawyers with different motives, some directed at me, most directed at my colleagues. Which is why I am always impressed when I find an attorney who stands out among his colleagues. I have personally hired Gary Israel on at least 2 occasions (neither having anything to do with medical malpractice) and he was able to resolve my issues in a timely and highly satisfactory way. Gary was either immediately available or returned my calls in a timely manner, and charged me fairly throughout the legal processes. There were never any "side issues" or extraneous legal distractions that took up any additional time or money. Mr Israel did not file the never-ending continuances that so many other lawyers seem so fond of. Also, whether the news was good or bad, Mr Israel gave it to me in a direct, no nonsense fasion (rather than beating around the bush), so that we could proceed in the most effective and timely fasion. I would stronly recommend Gary Israel to anyone seeking a highly competent, professional attorney who is unafraid to go to trial if necessary.

I have hired Mr Israel at least 6 times in the past 15 years. He has always proved himself a consummate professional, and was extremely adept in the handling of my case. He was thoroughly familiar with all of the issues related to the case (having done his own, extensive research) and was just as familiar with the laws and statutes regarding my specific case. Furthermore, I was treated fairly and courteously and when I had questions or concerns, Mr Israel was very prompt at returning my calls. In every case, Mr Israel was able to resolve my issue (s) favorably, and that is why I have called upon him faithfully in the past 15 years. I would highly recommend Mr Israel and have never had any complaints about him personally or professionally.

While he may be good at charging excessive amounts of money for paperwork and phone calls, he wasn't prepared for my case. As we walked into mediation, he still had not even looked at or used the child support calculator in order to make an educated plea for an increase in child support. In the beginning, he didn't even know when the papers were served until I told him, and although he responded to me quickly, he always directed me to 'call the office' when I had questions on the status of my case. He claims he did nothing wrong and that I gave up too soon, but I refused to spend any more money on getting the run around. I shared all the areas I wanted my child support/custody case to touch on, and I feel as if he didn't hear anything I said. He 'removed' himself from my case when I told him I didn't want him to represent me and that I didn't want to call him to discuss anything, because I wanted to avoid further charges. After he charged me $300 for filling out paperwork in .75hr to be relieved of my case, he finally returned less than $40 of the $1200 I originally paid him, and I am worse off now than I was before I even began proceedings. Words can not express how incredibly disappointed I am. More so in the fact I didn't get the service I paid for, and he sees nothing wrong with anything. He will probably respond similar to how he has for the other clients who reviewed him poorly, but be aware, if you don't have a big case or a lot of money to spend, he won't spend the time or preparation on you. I trusted him to have the knowledge, because of his high cost, but it certainly wasn't the case.

Promised quick results and even though today was ok, it shouln't have ever gone this far. All I wanted was an emergency motion resolved and we have spent so much more than he told us we would. to busy trying to cut corners and then we end up paying for all kinds of different motions and my initial problem has yet to be resolved. We were in court a few times and sadly, he still doesn't even know how to say my name properly or seems to care. He yelled at me because I couldnt get ex to say what he wanted through texts and was aware of my situation before taking on case. All in all tons of money spent and still waiting on first motion to be heard!

He was not concerned about my case, he was concerned about how much money he could make from my case. When I went to court he just sat there while opposing counsel bashed me and lied about certain issues. When I brought this to Mr. Israels attention letting him know I had facts to prove otherwise he just waived me off and wouldn't listen. If you want to just give your money away to someone who won't do anything for you then this is the one for you.
