Very happy with Attorney Carmen G Soto and her staff!
I am so happy that I hired attorney Carmen G Soto for my divorce and other legal matters that went along with my case. I am extremely grateful for all of the difficult and frustrating work attorney Soto and her staff did for me. From my first entrance into her office, I was greeted with professionalism, warmth and friendliness from attorney Soto, Lourdes, Sara and Melissa. Everyone was so patient with me and always answered my questions promptly and respectfully. I knew that I was in the right place for my needs. I actually feel that I now am part of their law family! I would, without hesitation, hire attorney Carmen G Soto and her team again if the need should ever arise.

I am beyond appreciative !! When going through such difficult and confusing times for my family, the law office of Carmen G. Soto and her firm exceeded my expectations . My mother lives in California and her divorce was in Florida , there was property involved and out of a mess they made everything so flawless, they counseled when needed and answered any questions or concerns promptly, and ensured my concerns were addressed and explained with so much patience. Her office team of ladies are also elite! They always responded so efficiently and fast and never once kept us out of the loop!Always on top of things making sure we never had issues. I would recommend to anyone needing there services as they went above and beyond. I had many other local recommendations, but from the moment I called into their office I knew I found the divorce attorney that would make sure my mother was well taken care of. forever grateful!

New beginning!
After experiencing four attorneys in a singular divorce, I can confidently attest to this office being the absolute best I’ve worked with. Their interest is in justice for their client, not profit. Service truly focused on quality and client interests. Truth be told, I wasn’t the easiest client at times, with great odds stacked against my case. However, regardless of conflict or struggle, the service provided was consistently outstanding.

Very happy with my results and the firm
I highly recommend Carmen Soto and her team! I had to file for bankruptcy and I was so scared and ashamed. I searched for days looking for an attorney and I came across Carmen Soto's page.. I read her reviews and saw all the great reviews, not one did I read that didn't meet the client’s needs.... I then decided to meet with her in May 2016.. After the first meeting with Mrs. Soto I felt so relieved.. she explained the process and what my options were. Answered all my questions without hurrying me, she was so knowledgeable. You can tell she is there for her clients. She gave me a reasonable price for her services, honestly I was so nervous that’s the last thing i was thinking of.. I left a deposit and then i was able in full at the end of November.. I had paperwork to turn in to get the process going. I met with one of her specialist Fabi (great person), I brought her all my stuff and she also helped answer all the other questions I needed. She was very thorough with me to make sure we don't miss anything to file. I was so nervous and scared.. but they made this whole nightmare easy.. Even going to the creditors meeting I was drying and Mrs. Soto made me feel at ease.. She had compassion and I was happy she was there representing me. Her whole team from Sarah that answers the phone, to Fabi to Mrs. Soto are all amazing! If you are looking for a firm to represent you and make you feel like family then she is the one to hire. I am an avid reviewer and am so thankful for the reviews that led me to find this firm.. You will not be disappointed, I know I am not! Thank you again for your great work and hope that you can help hundreds more...

Excellent, Professional, Attentive Law Firm
I hired the Law Offices of Carmen Soto for assistance with a Restraining Order followed by a contentious divorce. Allison Bishow was the lead on my case. She was very professional, understanding, and knowledgeable of the law. She succeeded in getting me everything I wanted. My divorce lasted longer than expected. Throughout the case, Carmen assisted me as well. Carmen was outstanding and had every answer to any questions that I asked. Daniela, the paralegal, was also very knowledgeable as well and was very kind to me. At every point during my case there was someone I could get a hold of immediately when I had a question. This was very comforting during a stressful time. Furthermore, this firm made every effort to save me costs rather than over litigating. This is an excellent law office. I would highly recommend them.

Miss Soto helped me with a restraining order and her office was very helpful as well. She offers payment plans and also gives you a free consult. She was there for me , while I was going through a rough time. I give her and her staff a 10 plus.

Very proffessional
I had to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and after consulting a few lawyers in the area I decided to hired Ms. Soto. From the beginning the process was very easy and her office team was very helpful. Any time I had a question Ms. Soto was able to answer it. She was always available via phone and email which made me feel that she care about my case. Even after my case was closed Ms. Soto was able to help me with some paperwork that I had misplaced. I got a copy the following day after I made the request. That was impressive!
