Family law superstars
I hired Mr. Clif Curry to take on my family law matter with regard to making my permanent alimony a thing of the past. Not only did he get it don, but did it without us having to go to court. He and his team are absolutely outstanding. Dallas Wheeler is paralegal is equally fantastic. I would highly recommend then with any family law matter. OUTSTANDING!

Super Lawyer
I have been a client of Mr. Curry's and known him for over 30 years. He is not only the best attorney I have ever used but his firm has specialists in every area of law. They literally are a one stop shop of any legal issue you may have. As for his qualifications they are far greater than he shows on his website. He has given so much back to the community. He is consistently involved in philanthropy, local events and one of the best in the community at giving back! Mr. Curry is able to do these things because of the trust of his community and the results of his team! When Mr. Curry says to “know your rights” he does know them. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law. Keeps himself up to date on new laws and I can assure you that he has the biggest heart of any man. I just would not want to be opposing counsel sitting across the conference table or in a trial. I have witnessed this firsthand and I wouldn’t use anyone but the Curry Law Group. He is not only a trial lawyer, but also has appeared before the Supreme Court. He knows your rights I

Probate
Mr. Lazaro met with me shortly after my passed away. He explained the probate process and assured me every thing would out in a positive manner. He handled each step court required. He filed the death certificate, demonstrated that l was the beneficiary and handled every step through the selling of the home.

The BEST!
Mr. Curry and his staff are the best. He knows the law, set my expectations to align with the law, and then exceed all of my expectations. He advocated for me better than I could myself. While patience is necessary in any court case, if you trust Mr. Curry and his staff, you will find that they will guide you in the right direction. Him and his staff are worth every penny!

Curry- Lawyer review
Mr. Curry is very matter of fact in reference to your particular situation. His honesty greatly reduced the amount of money I had to spend in my case. He posses a vast knowledge of the judges and attorneys in the Tampa area,which helps in his ability to convey to his clients the particular response the judge or opposing attorney might have.
