Highly recommend
I highly recommend Denise Tamir. From the first call, Denise guided us through a process that both my ex-husband and I were unfamiliar with giving us clarity and reassurance. Denise is extremely knowledgeable and made a difficult process go as smoothly as possible. She showed attention, care and compassion and had the best interest of our family in every step of the process. We have the best divorce outcome we could have wished for and it is because we had the right person on our side. Thank you Denise for everything!

Fastest Divorce in State of Florida
I've heard nothing but nightmare stories about divorce, process, with children, etc.. I am happy to say that with Denise's help I think I have the record for the fastest and cheapest divorce in the state of Florida. I'd like to add that we did the entire process over skype because I was/am living overseas and unable to make frequent trips back to FL. I never even met Denise except over skype. Entire process took less than 3 months and under $5K, and our divorce included 2 children and 2 homes in 2 different countries. Denise was absolutely the best no doubt about it! Thank You!
