Great Family Attorney
When I was in a bad spot due to my other attorney not doing a great job and costing me my business in my divorce I worked with Astrid and was extremely happy and satisfied with her work ethic, attention to detail, and how she treats me with respect.

Professional, knowledgeable, hard-working and empathetic
I hired Astrid in a case that turned out to be much more contentious than expected. Astrid inspired confidence from the beginning - she was responsive from the start, patiently explained all aspects of the case, and empowered me to make decisions I was comfortable with while still providing expert guidance. She was firm and fair throughout. Highly recommended!

Recommendation for Astrid Bismarck
I had a good experience with Ms Astrid Bismarck and her staff. Previously she had negotiated my prenuptial, then years later walked me through the divorce. The prenuptial was not contested and therefore the divorce was not a giant nightmare. I don’t know a lot about family law, however, she certainly does. Ms Bismarck is professional, attentive, and assessable. I enjoyed the fact that she has a small firm. I can recommend her for this sort of legal assistance. David Miami

Honest, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, to-the-point, highly professional, caring
Astrid represented me in a family case that turned quite complicated. She was dedicated, very thorough and thanks to her, I was able to reach an agreement without having to go to trial. She is very powerful with her words and presence, leaving no stone unturned. She does not back down. She is caring and passionate and I was very happy the she was the one representing me. She was always available to respond to my emails/phone calls quickly. She constantly kept me updated with the progress of the case. I could write all day long and it still would not be enough to praise how dedicated and fair Astrid is. If you are looking for someone who has your best interest in heart, Astrid is the perfect choice of an attorney for you. Thank you, Astrid!!!!!

Professional, Compassionate Advocate
I hired Ms. Bismarck to help me with a jurisdictional case and paternity action against my ex. I am originally from Iowa and what immediately caught my attention was seeing that Ms. Bismarck is also originally from the Midwest. Midwestern values and qualities hold strong in my personal opinion. After further review, it became very apparent that Ms. Bismarck is an expert in her field. After speaking with Ms. Bismarck over the phone, I immediately knew she was the woman for the job! She is highly intelligent, professional and, above all, compassionate, empathetic, and genuinely cares about her clients! Ms. Bismarck kept open communication with me the entire length of our professional relationship. She would immediately update me with any new developments, which i greatly appreciated as we were 1,500 miles apart. One thing that was truly 'nail biting' with my case is there was no prior case law to site as it was very unique in nature. Meaning - it was not going to be an easy victory by any means. However, Ms. Bismarck never conceded and was willing to fight on my behalf. Her confidence and support, and 'cut throat' class in the courtroom radiated and ultimately we were successful in winning my case! Thanks to Ms. Bismarck, my children and I have been able to remain home! I feel truly blessed to have found Ms. Bismarck and will never forget the superior service she provided for my family and I. I highly recommend Ms. Bismarck to anyone facing a legal action. She won't let you down!

Thorough, Knowledgeable and, Most Importantly, Caring
I met with Astrid after attempting to file for full custody of my child pro se for about a year. The only reason I felt I needed to hire a lawyer was because my son's father decided - right before he defaulted on the case - to hire a lawyer of his own. Suffice it to say that I was angry, bitter, and distraught when I went to see Astrid for the first time. However, in less than an hour, I immediately felt comfortable. She was knowledgeable and straight-forward, telling me what I needed to hear, not necessarily what I wanted to hear. My first impression of her was right on. Although I liked Astrid from the start, I was really impressed when we had to go to mediation. She may be tiny and look unassuming, but she was a pit bull - and I mean that in the most flattering light possible. For a client, that is exactly what you want in a lawyer: someone who will fight to get you what you deserve. Astrid did just that. Not only did I receive legal custody of my child, which was the main thing I was worried about, but she got the other party to agree to terms that never even crossed my mind to ask for: back child support, a time-sharing agreement 100 percent in my favor...she even thought to make the father take out a life insurance policy with my son as the benefactor! I didn't even realize that was a thing! Even my parents, who witnessed the struggle I went through since my son was born. were floored by the job she did. I can't say enough about her. If I had to do it all over again, I would only change one thing: I would have sought out Astrid sooner. Yes, she has the experience, and that's a huge plus. But if you're seeking a lawyer that is in tune to your needs and wants, is confident (yet civil) enough to go toe-to-toe with anyone, and will actually spend considerable time and effort to win your case, I would recommend Astrid in a heartbeat.

Honest and Straightfoward
Ms. Bismarck provides honest and sound advise. I was very fortunate to have her in my corner during my divorce.

An attorney that understands what is needed
I chose Astrid to represent me for a divorce case. I chose her because she did not come with pre-conceived notions and listened to what was needed for my case. She pushed at the right time and let certain situation develop within the right timeframe.

Excellent Lawyer, Efficient, To-the-Point.
Ms. Astrid Bismarck became my lawyer after I tried, for a long time by myself, to establish my parental rights against people with a lot of money and power and endless access to legal services. She is an excellent lawyer, efficient, to-the-point. Fast, knowledgeable, analytical and logical. Empathic, but above all: fact-driven, with an impeccable code of ethics. Ms. Bismarck will always use her mediation skills first to get to reasonable solutions. With perseverance, she is advocating my case and will fight firmly for my rights, which are in the best interest of the children.

I highly recommend the services of Ms. Astrid Bismarck.
I am thoroughly satisfied and continuously impressed with the services rendered by Ms. Astrid Bismarck. She is efficient, intelligent, firm, detail oriented, strategic, always very well prepared and most importantly, accessible to her clients. She represented me in a child support matter involving a high income earner and guided me throughout the process so that I could make rational and informed decisions that would serve in the best interest of my family. I am very happy with the achieved results. Astrid has the knowledge, cojones, and aptitude to deal with any opposing parties including "bullies"; she doesn't back down from anyone and maintains the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend her services, especially to those involved in divorce or child support matters with successful or high profile individuals.

Excellent professional services with a client oriented attitude
Ms. Bismarck represented me in a family case involving execution of a pre-nuptial agreement, as well as in real estate transactions. I found her both knowledgeable and efficient, with a "can do" attitude. I overwhelmingly recommend her.

Exceptional and highly reliable Family Law Attorney
Astrid is very responsive, reliable, and very knowledgeable in Family Law. She has always been honest and extremely professional in her dealing with me. I have received clear, accurate and honest information from her. I have no doubt in my mind that she is the best "divorce" attorney. She has been very empathetic and has gone above and beyond to assist me during this difficult and emotional time. I have had numerous questions and concerns and she would always call me back or email me right away with a response. Again, Astrid M. Bismarck will be the best choice in any family law issue.

Fine lawyer for real estate transactions or divorce/custody problems
I was lucky enough to have Astrid Bismarck help me with a mortgage refinancing last year. She did an excellent job, and gave me advice that helped me save money on the transaction. I was very pleased with her attention to detail and her responsiveness. I strongly recommend her for real estate matters. Separately, I have referred people with family law issues to her (I am a practicing lawyer in Miami). The people I have sent to her have been uniformly satisfied, and no one has said anything but positive things about the recommendation. You can't go wrong hiring this experienced, smart and responsible lawyer.

Excellent real estate advice and closing
Ms. Bismarck gave us timely and essential advice on the nuances of the Florida real estate market, and closed our real estate purchase with great efficiency and professionalism.
