Your attorney, Ms. Tara Warrington called me within minutes of my request to talk to a lawyer by telephone. She was EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable about the subject matter. She saved me from making a very costly legal blunder and answered all of my numerous legal questions. Thank you AVVO Instant and Ms. Warrington for this valuable and useful tool. Terry in Orlando

Prompt and professional
Attorney Warrington explained her fees, she responded to questions very quickly, and moved my legal matter along. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly she resolved my issue and very impressed with her organization and professionalism. I would not hesitate to employ this fine attorney again.

Excellent Results and Quick!!!
Tara was very professional and responded quickly to my initial inquiry. I chose her based on her credentials for my case and that she could meet with me within days, since I was on a tight time line with my travel schedule. She answered all my questions and kept me up to date on all correspondence, documents and worked with me on my payment arrangements. Although my case might not have the same results for someone else, I can say my case was resolved extremely quickly (within days) with very excellent results!! No more collection phone calls and the collect agency debt is off my CR. I would certainly recommend her services to anyone.

Bankruptcy
I spoke with Ms Warrington in April (I think) 2015 regarding my case. After reviewing the paperwork I brought with my Ms. Warrington suggested I should file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Ms. Warrington was very professional, answered my questions, no matter how many times I had to ask the same question, and she kept me informed of what was going on. After my case went to court and a payment schedule was set up buy the court. This is when I started having problems with Ms. Warrington. She was slow to return my calls, if at all. Only after several calls did she return my calls. Recently I received a call from the Clerk of the Court stating that she could not get in touch with Ms. Warrington and that was the reason she was calling me. She stated that the court needed a document basically regarding my income. Eventually the event was reconciled, with out the help of Ms. Warrington. I would not recommend Ms. Warrington to my friends or anyone else. I still have not been able to get a hold of Ms. Warrington on the phone. Ms. Warrington started out ok, then just faded off into . . . I don't know where.

Worst experience we ever had with an attorney
Tara seemed nice enough during our first meeting, but I felt she did not ask us to bring proper documentation in order to ensure we were taking the right path. She took our money...then disappeared. So frustrating. Never took our calls - never! Never followed up via email or through her online case system. Had to finally get the FL bar association involved. Then she replied. No apologies, just some lame excuse. This attorney is a joke. You will never get your money back or get her to do anything to help you.

Horrible attorney
Hired Tara in January 2016 paid her $1100.00 two filing fees that she never filed with the court. She didn't do anything on either of our cases and has our original legal documents that we provided to her & she has not responded to our voicemail, emails for over a month. Gone to her office several times and no one is ever there.. She has took our money and our legal documents and really left us with a mess. Would never recommend this attorney to anyone. Found out she has done this to other clients. She disappears for a few months than comes back to take another victims money .

Real estate Attorney | Feb 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"What higher praise can an attorney receive than the positive testimony of a former client who is also an attorney? My wife had a real estate matter to deal with. I knew Tara, as she was one of my former students and one of the brightest students I have ever taught. I thought I would give her a shot at handling the matter, despite the fact that she was somewhat new to practicing law (at the time). She handled my matter with efficiency and professionalism, and got us a great result (complete dismissal of the other party's action). Furthermore, her work in that case led to us getting a decision against an agent of the other party in a civil suit in California. It is a wonderful day when you can see a former student bloom into a great lawyer. But, it is really a great day when you have so much confidence in that former student to let her represent you. I am glad that I did, and endorse her without reservation."
