Attorney Debi V. Rumph is an Orlando native of 38 years, with strong ties to the community where she lives and serves.

Debi graduated from UCF in the Legal Studies program in 1995. After graduating from the University of Florida, College of Law, Debi focused in construction law, commercial landlord tenant law, and general commercial litigation at a major and national law firm. Following that experience, Debi taught at the FAMU College of Law as a professor of law for 3 years. While a law professor, she became a published scholar.

After becoming a published scholar, Debi established the Residential Real Estate Law Firm, which provided services in the areas of: landlord and tenant, real estate closings, homeowner disputes with homeowner associations and insurance companies, and construction law. The Residential Real Estate Law Firm also provided services in the areas of wills, probate, living wills, and guardianships.

In an attempt to further develop her practice in residential real estate, Debi obtained her real estate license in 2007, and she also received extensive title insurance training. Therefore, Debi has received extensive training in her practice area.

In early 2012, the Residential Real Estate Law Firm’s name was changed to The Law Offices of Debi Rumph, with some changes in focused areas but a renewed commitment to the core values, mission and vision of Debi V. Rumph, Attorney at Law.

Highly effective and efficient!
Debi saved by situation. I called 20 lawyers and her office is the only that picked up. Within a couple of days, she learned about the case and prepared all documents. It was a very difficult and urgent case, but Debi solved it very quickly and very efficiently. Hiring her was the best decision that also saved many nights of good sleep.

The best in her field
Debi V Rumph, if you are ever in need of a residential lawyer I recommend Ms Debi Rumph. She handled my case during the most difficult time The Covid-19 Pandemic. It moved very slow but she stuck with my case. The court cases were being backed up. However, she stayed with me. For that I'm very grateful. To make a long story short she was able to present my case and won on all levels. Thank you Ms Debi V Rumph

She is the Attorney who will fight for you
Attorney Debi Rumph took our case. We were being sued by a landlord for unfounded charges and false repairs needed to be done. They kept our deposit, and wanted more. She not only got the deposit, and damages, but also had them pay her fees as well. we could not be happier with her services and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing Tenant/Landlord help. I can only imagine that this win is one of many she is the best!! Kind, understanding and very personable to our case. Good Luck Debi Rumph in your practice and all endeavors.

Excellent Advice
I'm dealing with a very difficult landlord and several questions as to where I stand legally. I contacted Attorney Rumph's office, and Debi called me personally to provide the information, and advice, I was seeking. If things were to escalate, I would absolutely hire her.

Excelent Tenant's Rights Attorney
I contacted this attorney seeking help with tenant's rights law. Her and her staff were incredibly helpful and provided me with the knowledge with different alternatives that I could use from doing the job myself, to working minimally with them, to hiring them completely. Ultimately, based on the information they provided, I made an attempt with this new information to resolve the issue amicably, and it worked out great. I am very grateful to these attorneys for their help and support.

Awesome
Trying to work through many issues with my landlord.. Her assistant gave me great advice and SHE called me, texted me, emailed me, and personally talked to me and made sure I had enough information to battle my PM... all on a consultation I really hope my issue doesn't need to move to litigation but Debi will be my first call for me and my other neighbors, too!

Extremely professional, and stays on top of your case
Awesome lawyer. I had ac issue in the house I was renting and the leasing company toiled around with fixing the AC unit for over a year. They keep just band aiding the issues. My entire family was sick on and off all year when I finally realized there must be mold and tested for it and sure enough the ac handler had mold in it. They then took 2 weeks just to come out and check it and another week to replace it. By this time I had already moved my family into another house and broke the lease. Debi not only got me my $1600 security deposit back and got us legally out of the lease 6 months early but also retrieved $2000 for back rent. Debi was awesome through the entire deal which the rental company attempted to drag out. She was on top of it week by week and kept me informed through email and phone calls through the e tire process. If you are looking for a lawyer who cares look no farther. She will fight for you tooth and nail and get you the best deal possible. Stop looking for a lawyer and call her ASAP and by the way she’s very reasonable. Thx so much Debi for all your help!!!!!!!

Phenomenal attorney
Debi represented me when my landlord refused to return my deposit. She kept me well informed of everything that was happening with my case. In the end my landlord wanted to settle out of court thanks to Debi. I highly recommend Debi, she's phenomenal at what she does.

Rental Deposit Refund
I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. The rental management company refused to refund my deposit without merit. Attorney Rumph went over and beyond what I envisioned an attorney would do for me in my situation. Her calm demeanor kept me calm and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. She managed to retrieve my deposit within 72 hrs. I HIGHLY recommend her. She is skilled and professional.
