Ultimate professional!
I required an opinion on an estate matter in Florida. I contacted Mr. Gunthert (after reading very positive reviews). He and his paralegal took the time to listen to my specific needs. Mr. Gunthert gave me great advice-explained every issue clearly. Highly recommend their practice.

Took the time to thoroughly answer my questions
I posted a question on Avvo about a probate situation. The law office handling my relative’s estate was not communicating much with me. Mr. Gunthert gave me a clear and helpful answer to my question. I had a number of follow-up questions (about the requirements for a final accounting, etc), and he took the time to thoroughly answer each one. I would have hired Mr. Gunthert if the law office handling the estate had not started responding to my concerns (fortunately, they finally did). He communicates clearly and is empathetic… it’s clear that he cares about people and is devoted to his profession.

Effective and Personable
I was selected by the family of my best friend to be the P.R. in her probate case. She unfortunately died intestate and even more unfortunate was the estate was contested and became very contentious at times. Luckily, I came upon Mr. Gunthert’s profile on the Avvo website. Mr. Gunthert called me back within 24 hours of my email to him and we talked for almost an hour so he could get a thorough idea of the matter. Thankfully, he decided to take the case! Mr. Gunthert and his paralegal, Patty, are very easy to work with and professional. They responded timely in all aspects of the case. Their billing statements are accurate, thorough, and easy to follow. The research Mr. Gunthert put forth in the motions and memorandums made him extremely prepared for the hearings. There were two big hearings in the case and Mr. Gunthert prevailed in both on my behalf. I’m very grateful to Mr. Gunthert and his staff for all the hard work they put forth in my case. I highly recommend this firm for any probate and estate needs.

Excellent representation!
Mr. Gunthert was one of the attorneys that answered my question on Avvo. I liked his response and contacted him for a consultation. and asked for his representation. He went above and beyond what was required to make sure my Florida Probates'; i’s were dotted and t’s were crossed, which is very important in Florida. Mr. Gunthert took the time to thoroughly explain all my options. Then he asked the pertinent questions he needed answered to provide what he considered would be the best option for my situation. With a thorough explanation on why he felt that way, I was very confident in his suggestion. The truth is, while Mr. Gunthert’s suggestion was great for my situation, it was not the best option for his bottom line. But I don’t think that mattered. It seemed Mr. Gunthert was more concerned with my welfare than his own. I am not saying Mr. Gunthert works for free, he would go out of business. What I contend is that he will always; always; suggest what is in the best interest of his client. That is how all businesses should be. But this is so rare nowadays, and I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the services I received from Phillip William Gunthert, Esq.

A personable Professional who Listens! Timely, courteous, someone who truly wants to help!
I live in another state and needed the advice of a Florida attorney based on advice from attorneys in my state. I was a bit skeptical of searching the internet to find someone who would give a consultation as there are several complexities to my particular situation. The matter was in regards to a Revocable Trust with the only trustee now incapacitated mentally due to Alzheimer’s and in regards to Durable POA with both documents executed under Florida law. The situation involves those who plan on physically taking this 90 year old to the bank, having her remove a large sum of money, through manipulation, knowing full well she has Alzheimer’s and cannot make sound decisions. The situation has many facets but Mr Gunthert spent close attention to all details, asked necessary questions and spent significant time giving his knowledge of the law based on the information I provided. Our conversation took a lot of weight and stress off of me! He asked for nothing! I have now decided to hire him. I have confidence in his capabilities and ethics.

Helpful and honest
Phillip returned my call on a Sunday morning, which was a pleasant surprise. I am from Wisconsin and I was inquiring about a Probate situation for my deceased mom, a Wisconsin resident, who owned a timeshare in Florida when she passed away. Phillip didn’t just feed me a line so I would hire him, he was very upfront and honest with his assessment of my situation. He gave me some very good advice, wished me luck and said to call him back if I need anything else. What a breath of fresh air.

Excellent, Knowledgeable, Compassionate Attorney
Phillip William Gunthert has taken the time to answer some of my very difficult and confusing questions about a very convoluted probate case on his own time and without earning any fees. He is honest, forthright and cares. His knowledge of the law is excellent and his feedback top notch. I have attended law school but am not an attorney and my sister is an attorney however not in the state in question. We needed guidance and he provided it. He is on point and sympathetic to our situation. We would absolutely hire him! Thank you Phillip! We are grateful!

Excellent Lawyer!
Mr Gunthert was extremely helpful with his advice and direction concerning a particularly iffy probate case. He was very detailed and gave me tons of information on what I need to do before I even start. Plus he seems like a really nice guy...

Great guidance, excellent cost at a difficult time for me
Attorney Gunthert handled the estate of my late son. He navigated the court during the challenging time of the pandemic. He guided me correctly on the type of estate needed and his assistant went above and beyond in ensuring I could settle the estate and put the episode behind me while honoring my sons obligations. Personable and compassionate service done at a flat fee as agreed despite the extras the pandemic added in. I highly recommend him and his wonderful assistant.

Phillip was excellent with all of his services in setting up my Will. He and his staff were responsive and very caring in all interactions that I had - and I would recommend him highly to anyone needing this type of service. I give him and his office an A++ rating.

A superb and resourceful attorney
Mr. Gunthert answered a question I posted on the platform with detailed and valuable information. Furthermore, he replied to my follow-up questions promptly and with the same degree of quality. He was insightful and seemed interested in helping. Even after realizing that due to the distance between his office and the location where I needed legal help, I would be better served with a closer attorney, Mr. Gunthert was cordial and responsive. If you need an attorney in Orlando, who cares about your issue irrespective of hiring him or not, I recommend Mr. Gunthert without reservations.

Highly recommend!
Consulted with this attorney to assist me with a pending foreclosure on my home. This attorney went above and beyond in assisting me with saving my home. My mortgage company was attempting to enter a default judgement against me, but because Mr. Gunthert had prepared a defense statement on my behalf, the judge sided with me and ruled in my favor permitting me to remain in my home and my mortgage company later relented and approved my request for a mortgage modification which allowed me to keep my home. Mr. Gunthert was relentless in his pursuit to assist me with this matter and was flexible with his fee schedule. I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone in need of 'fighting the good fight' against those that would take advantage of you. Give Phil a call today and get a new lease on life.
