I chose Mr. Byrd because of his experience and success in family law. Divorce is difficult enough as it is without worrying about all the legal issues that go along with it. From my initial consultation Mr. Byrd made at ease and his final statement during that consultation was "relax, I've got this now." Did he ever. Everything went as smoothly as could be expected and he was right by my side every step of the way. I'm extremely grateful. Thank you Johnnie.

It is my opinion that Johnnie Byrd is first about integrity & his longer term reputation as a fellow man & local citizen of the community. That he may profit from any abilities as an exceptional attorney seems to me almost secondary in him. Johnnie would become my advocate, counselor, legal protector & a part of my support system. I would find myself in front of Johnnie seeking assistance and on the advice of respected friends….and as I began with him was clearly somewhat ‘rattled’, embarrassed & ‘blown away’ by the turn of events in my life & having been served with a divorce I did not wish for but which was clearly intent on harming me as much as would be (legally & financially) possible…it became clear early on that this man was more about seeing his fellow man ‘stabilize’… and becoming first aware of every possibility… before either of us would move forward. Indeed as I recall it would be my 3rd contact with Johnnie before he would accept any monies from me…and I then found his fees, retainer & policies to be completely fair. When all was ‘said & done’ there would remain some unused money associated with me in escrow with Johnnie. He immediately addressed this and refunded monies due. Furthermore, as things would progress it would become clear that he would not be the type of attorney to bill me for every single question or communication. And to that point I found Johnnie to be exceptional in his communications & follow-thru with me. In Johnnie I found an attorney whose length of experience speaks for itself, but I also personally found an individual adept at using analogies, metaphors, wit & humor to make his points and guidance to me. My particular situation would drag on for a fairly long time. Stopping & starting at least once as I would attempt to find a way to ‘salvage’ my marriage – Never would Johnnie undercut that effort or push me to move along for his sake. And when things finally reached a somewhat sudden conclusion, Johnnie had ample opportunity to encourage me to continue on simply for spite toward the other party, or for financial gain, and to do so would clearly have been to his (financial) advantage – He did not do so. He wanted me to make the best decision for me and for my peace of mind. And it is for these reasons that I would trust Johnnie Byrd to represent me in any legal capacity that he may present himself. And I would trust him to represent any friend, family or loved one.

Mr. Byrd handled a family case for me and was very courteous and professional. He is a true homegrown Plant City attorney that will treat you with respect in an unpretentious atmosphere. He was always prompt in answering any questions and kept me up to date. Mr. Byrd would inform me of things I needed to be aware of to make sure I was being protected. I truly appreciate all his hard work.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Johnnie is a trusted attorney that has shown me he is aggressive in pursuing litigation matters. He also is well known and respected throughout the community and is a valuable ally when litigating in the Tampa/Plant City/Lakeland area. Also, he is fine radio show host and can be found Saturday mornings hosting a local talk show on enlightened politics.
