The Best Attorney Ever!!!
Mrs. Rhonda F. Gelfman, P.A. by far, is one of the best attorneys in the State of Florida. Rhonda demonstrated her impeccable expertise in my Child Support case. On April 23, 2018, Attorney Rhonda Gelfman got me a verdict of zero payment. I am so glad I had attorney Rhonda F. Gelfman as my attorney, and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a favorable outcome in his/her case. Rhonda, you are the best, Thank you!!!

Years ago, i have been through a lot of immigration troubles. A friend of mine referred me to Rhonda Faith Gelfman and guaranteed that I will be happy with her work. I did as i was told, and the result have been outstanding. She has a great team especially the paralegal ,MIRIAM CHAMORRO; oh Lord, she knows what she is doing. Miriam tries everything to stay in touch with clients such as Phone calls, and e-mails. The team treats clients with respect, which is my number one priority. I could have not been happier. I highly recommend Attorney Rhonda Faith Gelfman because she is very clever and knowledgeable.
