Excellent, responsive attorney!
Ms. Estefano was great! She handled my divorce with compassion and zeal. Her office always returned calls promptly. It was clear that she was respected by the court and the other attorney. I highly recommend her.

Excellent Attorney
Delaila has been my personal attorney for more than 5 years. She represented me in a very difficult case and her professionalism was outstanding. She guided me during the whole process, keep me informed about my options, and never engaged in unnecessary litigation. She is an aggressive attorney and she will defend your rights. I deeply trust her criteria and blindly follow her advice. I can not think of a better attorney to recommend.

Excellent Attorney
I not only recommend Delaila but I guarantee once you have used her service you too will look no further. Unfortunately, I have been going through a thought divorce and I have been able to turn to Delaila for calm, sure guidance. When you are in distress and emotional pain it is difficult to think clearly and make good decisions . That, in addition to not understanding a legal process complicates matters even more. Delaila always explain the law, outlined in clear language the steps in the process that were needed to be done. She was reassuring, articulate, knowable and effective. Delaila made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome. She responds in a timely manner and is a very knowledgeable, trustworthy person. She is a wonderful attorney and I could not be more grateful with her I will never go anywhere else. She puts her heart in situations that are very important for her clients and her passion for her career make her irreplaceable. She is simply the best!

Highly recommend!
We were referred to Ms. Estefano back in 2014 originally for my husbands family case and then I used her for my relocation case. Since day one Ms Estefano and her team were caring&attentive. Merle (her secretary) was/is amazing! Even after getting my relocation granted, i know i can count on them for any questions or concerns i may have. They are professional, reliable and prompt! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a “pit bull” family lawyer ! Thank you Estefano law for your services.

Divorce Attorney
I was married for 20 plus years and for the last 5 years I was very unhappy! My son was deathly ill and it unfortunately took a toll on our marriage. Through intense marriage counseling, catholic retreats and matrimony groups it still didn't survive! It takes two to tango ! So they say , well there is not one paragraph or 5 to explain what the Estefano Law office did for me. They walked me through the toughest part of my life and that was filing for a divorce. There is no money or gifts that can explain the gratitude I have for the entire staff and Mrs. Estefano her self. I am a Professional Firefighter and have been for 24 years and due to the events that transpired through my career, divorce and an ill son I developed Alopescia. I lost all of my hair ! All of it ! Including eye lashes and eye brows ! Estefano Law is not only highly recommended by myself but also considered to have helped hundreds of Firefighters and Police officers in our time of need!!! She and her staff are Heaven Sent !! Through the beginning and til the final judgement I have felt a sense of Humility because of how they treated me and guided me through this difficult part of my life! I am happily married now and through her guidance I have found myself and I have corrected all the bad habits that tend to destroy a marriage. Thank You Delaila so much and from the bottom of my heart it is with great honor and gratitude I can call you a friend and One of the few Best Attorneys in the State of Florida!!!!

Client
Mrs Estefano is very professional and absolutely knows what she is doing in reference to Child Custody and Family Law. As a father I was in a very bad situation with the mother of my child and she was able to prove to court all of the wrong doing in my case and I was able to get full custody of my daughter. Today my daughter is living a safe healthy life in a peaceful ambient. I am eternally greatful for the service that Mrs Estefano provided and I am sure my daughter will be as well in the future. I highly recommend Mrs Estefano for any Family Law Services needed.

Delaila literally saved my life. As my attorney she represented me fiercely in court. Delaila and her team made sure I was informed and up to date at all times and were beyond supportive both legally and emotionally. Delaila's professionalism and expertise were instrumental in the winning of my case. I highly recommend her services to anyone seeking second to none top notch legal representation.

Delaila started off representing me during my divorce and was on point throughout the whole procedure. She's not only knowledgeable but compassionate as well. After many years I must say I consider her a very dear friend.

GREAT ATTORNEY!
Delaila has represented me on a few family matters and I recommend her to all my friends and family. She knows the law, cares about her clients, and always keeps the clients up to date. Throughout my case I felt informed and like I was being taken care of. She gives good advise and is great at what she does.

Satified Client- Highly Recommend her to another case.
I have used Mrs. Estefano on numerous occasions ranging from Family cases to Business Trademark matters and I have always been satisfied with her performance and attention to my case. I would recommend her to any friend or family matter.

Lioness in the courtroom
This attorney reminds me of a lioness in the jungle. Although she seems very nice and polite and quiet, she is quite different in the courtroom. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in the field of Family Law, but she shows a ferose attitude like none other. When I first met with her on my case she was very positive and was very upfront about the challenges we might face. She didn't try to to beat around the bush and take my money. As the case progressed and new challges arose, she kept me abreast of it all and tidiously explained to me what was happening. In the end, she fought for me and won me more than I ever thought my son was entitled to. She fought tooth and nail for me and I have no doubt that this is how she treats every single one of her other clients. If ever I need a family law attorney again, I will no doubt seek her services. Worth every penny.

Response from Delaila Estefano April 19, 2023
Since this comment is anonymous it is very difficult to respond to it. That I am aware, we have not "lost" any cases or obtained a bad result for any client. If this client needs to speak to me about their case, they can call and schedule an appointment at 305-4441-0616, and/or email me directly. I am very responsive and have a full staff that can address any questions or concerns. I take pride in providing my clients' individual and personalized representation, and I am very surprised by this comment.
