I am so Great full for Annette and her assistant for helping me resolve my divorce in a timely matter. they were so helpful and made the process very easy . I didn't have to do any work. they handled it very professionally and accurately. I was so worried about my case and they made me feel at ease.

Annette Sanchez
I would highly recommend Annette to anyone seeking legal representation. I had met with a few other attorneys and I’m so happy I decided to go with Annette. I hired her during a very difficult situation in my life and I found her to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable, caring, honest and will keep your best interest at heart. While working with Annette, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands. If I ever need an attorney again, I will definitely ask her to represent me again! Thanks Annette for everything!

Excellent service. Very professional and approachable. Highly recommend.
We contacted Ms. Sanchez for legal advice regarding a potential business venture. Her advice was clear and concise. We left the meeting with a much greater understanding of Florida statutes and legal restrictions regarding our venture. Will definitely seek her counsel for any and all other future legal matters.

Outstanding legal experience
My husband and I came to Annette in need of a real estate contract to purchase a home for sale by owner. Annette quickly provided us with a clear, yet detailed contract that met our specifications and ensure it protected us as buyers of the property. Annette also reviewed all documentation throughout the process of purchasing the property to ensure we always had legal representation. We would highly recommend Annette for any legal services because expeditious work and attention to detail.

Absolutely the BEST!
Words can not express what am amazing job Annette did on my divorce.She is truly remarkable in what she does. She was very generous with her time and at no point did I feel rushed or pressured. By this I mean she genuinely cared about me and what I was going through. She was always there when I needed something, gave me great advice, and responded to all of my emails and returned all of my calls (even for small things). She noted everything and made sure it was all on record the day we went to court! She is definitely a great catch and I'm so glad I hired her, and thankful for everything she did for me! SHE ROCKS!
