This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the Florida Bar to understand the reasons for this disbarment.
This means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

PLEASE LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKE!!!
Money changed hands, contracts were signed, promises made and nothing has come of it. At first things seemed to be going smooth and then it became increasingly difficult to contact him. We attempted phone calls, text messages, emails and certified mail. If (big if) we ever got in contact with him he would make promises about calling the next day (we verified the correct phone number), sending an email update (verified correct emails) and never once followed through. I can understand when things come up but it has been 2 years and we are no closer to a resolution for our case than we were the day we stepped into his office; in fact we are farther behind because of the money that was paid.
Please do not make the mistake we made, I cannot bare the thought of another mother going a year and a half without seeing her son because a lawyer will not do the things he has promised.

I retained Mr. Rainey in June 2013 for a modification of time sharing and enforcement of the guidelines set out in my divorce's final judgement. However, after taking my retainer all this attorney has managed to do is file two documents back in Nov/Dec 2013 with much prodding. After being retained, he doesn't seem to care about returning calls, emails or any other form of correspondence in a timely manner. At present I am still waiting on him to call me back as of our last phone call on 4/4/14. I have made numerous other attempts via phone calls and emails. Most recently I sent certified mail only to find out it was un-deliverable, as Mr. Rainey's address has been seemingly vacant per the post office representative for some time as they are accumulating his unclaimed mail. Do not, I repeat do not hire this lawyer. He will give you a song and dance, take your money and close up shop!

I retained the services of Mr. Rainey for my divorce back in March. He filed the initial acknowledgement paperwork and then disappeared - barely returned my calls, text or emails. Now the office were I signed my retainer is closed. He took my retainer, ignored my messages and visits, and is no where to be found.

I endorse this lawyer. I am a Criminal Defense attorney who has many clients who have family law issues. I always first think of Attorney Brent Rainey when my clients need an aggressive family law attorney. Attorney Rainey is an excellent lawyer & is passionate about his work. I would highly recommend him.
