I needed a divorce lawyer and was lucky to find Elena Perez.
I was married for 34 years and needed a smart and compassionate lawyer. Elena Perez was exactly what I needed. Her entire office is filled with knowledgeable people. She not only took care of my case she also took care of me. She is a very skilled lawyer

Best Attorney i could have ever chosen!!!
My 2 daughters father wanted more custody than 50/50. I went to mediation once before by myself, nothing got done, we were going to trial and i had no idea how to go about with the case. I then hired Elena Perez and it was the best decision i ever made!! We scheduled another mediation before trial and everything was settled for good. We kept the 50/50 and both came to an understanding. Elena Perez and her associates are very professional. I would recommend her to all my friends and family without a doubt.

Good presentation. God Carism
I have been a client of Elena's since 2007. As far as I am concerned he will always be my Lawyer. Elena knows the Florida Law extremely well, tells you exactly how it is. She is direct, honest and does not play games. I went thru a very bitter divorce and a custody case. Elena did everything she could to make sure that everything that was happening was in the best interest of my son and myself. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a Lawyer. She has a very good people work with her, their help me a lot for my payments, documents for my different cases. I will like to say.. thank you Elena and staff.

Pure Robbery
We hired Elena to resolve a child support case. She was consistently late, very unprofessional to my wife and overcharged us for a case that is STILL NOT resolved. Child support was never modified and she was completely unhelpful at the court dates

Client
For the rest of my life, I will regret having hired Elena M. Perez as my divorce attorney. From the very beginning, I usually had to deal with her assistant, because Miss Perez was 'not available'. The few times I was able to speak to her, she never seemed to remember what we had discussed the last time we spoke. After almost 2 1/2 YEARS as her client, she decided to drop me. This could have been a simple divorce. I paid her a few thousand dollars for (what I consider) to be nothing, because I had to hire another attorney (who got everything resolved in about 2 1/2 MONTHS). In the beginning, I was 'okay' speaking to her paralegal (Maggie), but after a while, I discovered they were practically one and the same. The only difference was that Maggie was much more 'accessible' and had a much better memory. When I complained to Maggie about Ms. Perez' memory, she admitted to me that it wasn't a very good one. Their receptionist could not speak English. It was not long after I became their client, that the receptionist left. After I received a call from Ms. Perez that she had decided to drop me as a client, I received a call from her paralegal who offered to come to court with me on the last court date and she would help 'walk me through it' and also said that I should not tell Ms. Perez that she was going to do that for me. She told me she would not charge me so much as Ms. Perez since she was just a paralegal. I found out later from another attorney's office that the judge would not have allowed that. Yet Maggie had asked me for some upfront money. I have text messages and emails on my phone which can testify to most of what I have to say about this 'divorce attorney' and her co-workers. Some things, however, were discussed by phone so I have no way to prove those things. The last conversation I remember having with Ms. Perez (after she dropped me), was to request my records. At that point, she said: "but I thought you were going to allow Maggie to go to the Courthouse with you on the final date." Sounded to me like they were in on this from the moment Maggie said she would 'help' me - without Ms. Perez' knowledge. Very unprofessional 'team'. I would not let Miss Perez represent me if she would offer to do it for free.

Bad law practice from this counselour
This attorney did not even show up to my divorce. She asked me questions of things that we previously discussed and were logical. her knowledge in family matters is questionable. Horrible experience, i will not recommend this attorney - My best advice will be RUN!!!
