Fantastic Lawyer!
Ms. Lasley goes above and beyond for her clients, and that was exemplified when I retained her to represent me. She even went above and beyond and stayed after her normal work hours to prepare me for mediation, in which she fiercely and aggressively advocated for me. Not to mention, her staff is incredible and extremely responsive. They truly take the nerves out of an anxiety-ridden process. If you haven’t retained her yet, you are truly missing out on exemplary representation.

MOST AMAZING LAW FIRM!
This is such an amazing family law office and I was very impressed with the handling of my case. The team is incredibly helpful, organized and professional. Attorney Lasley is so knowledgeable and honest. She educates clients about divorce law and the process involved so that you understand each step. Given my case was a long term marriage with high income and assets involved, this guidance helped me feel at ease and I trusted her office wholeheartedly. I felt confident about my representation and felt very well taken care of at every point. My case became very contested, with constant litigation about mismanaged marital accounts, dissipation of assets, and you guessed it, alimony. Their effort and commitment was relentless. I am very pleased with their services and consider myself lucky to have conducted my case with them.

Brilliant and Bold Attorney
In the most shocking and paralyzing time of my life, Mindi Lasley and her team came to bat for me in such a profound way. I hired her for what I knew would be a litigation blood bath in a child custody case. I knew the opposing side would try every trick in the book...and Mindi was ready. Mindi is bright, sharp, intuitive, and bold. At our first mediation, the opposition came in and demanded everything. I'll never forget Mindi roaring, "We aren't agreeing to any of that!" I knew in that moment that I was in really good hands.I felt protected and empowered. Throughout our very long, drawn-out case, Mindi and her team made sure to advise me on all of the big things and all of the small things. I appreciated her insight on how to respond (and how not respond) to unreasonable emails, requests, and accusations. Mindi and Yanna were always available to council me on minor issues that would come up between me and my problematic co-parent. I always felt like they had my best interest at heart and truly wanted the best outcome for my child. I never felt like a dollar sign or like just another another client. I felt like we had a meaningful relationship throughout the duration of my case (and beyond). I was never left wondering what I was being charged for in terms of attorney's fees; I received a detailed accounting for all money spent out of my retainer. All fees were very reasonable and I always felt at ease. Mindi was always was upfront about possible outcomes of my case; she kept me hopeful, but never gave me false hope. I was able to make informed decisions every step of the way. In the end, we persevered. Mindi not only preserved me as the parent with majority custody, but I even gained more time and our lives have changed for the better. For the first time in years, my child and I have peace and life is great. I owe it all to Mindi and her team.

AMAZING!
Mindi, Yanna, and the entire staff are simply amazing! They are competent, professional, and they make you feel confident and in good hands. In addition, they really do care about you as a person, and show you that you are a priority to them. Divorce is a turbulent and stressful time. I did multiple consultations with some of the best lawyers in Tampa before I choose Mindi. I couldn’t have been happier with my choice. And I’m very grateful for everything they have done to help me!

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!
An outstanding team for family law, and Attorney Mindi Lasley was exceptional. This is top tier legal advocacy and they provided full commitment to my needs and goals. I couldn't be happier with their services. Lasley Family Law handles Pre-Nups, Divorces, Paternity, Parenting Plans, Child Custody, Family Law Appeals, and Modifications. I highly recommend their services if you are looking for a family law firm.

Best divorce attorney in Tampa!
I hired Mindi Lasley for my contested divorce involving a custody, alimony and dividing finances and debt. I cannot recommend her enough! I previously had a lawyer that I didn’t think was making any progress on my case. He didn’t even seem to know much of the details of my case and I could never get in contact with someone from his office to help me. As soon as I hired Ms. Lasley, I felt like I had a real advocate by my side. I felt she was experienced, extremely knowledgeable about the law, wasn’t afraid to go to court, gave me honest legal advice and was very forthcoming with me. Ms. Lasley and her team always kept me informed and were easily able to contact with questions and I was able to get responses quick responses. Ms. Lasley and her team really prepared me for every step along the way, making me feel much more confident and comfortable because I had never been through any court issues before. And of course the best thing were the RESULTS given from the judge which I’m sure was a result Ms. Lasley and her firm.

Amazing
Mindi Lasley is an outstanding attorney, and I highly recommend her for all your family law needs. I have had Mindi and her team represent me in my initial divorce case, and most recently in defense of a serious modification case. Twice now my life has been turned upside down by an unexpected family law case, with the divorce and then the modification. Every trick in the book was thrown at me by the other side during the divorce and during the modification, and both times Mindi has been by my side, getting everything handled and taken care of. I felt like I was protected at every point. She helped guide me and obtained the best results possible with exactly what we were requesting both times. She always helped calm me down when the situation seemed unbearable and would get me focused. I can't recommend her and her team enough to anyone else facing a similar situation.

Professional Representation at its Best
Mindi and I had a long journey, due to my need to handle things with my ex with kid gloves. She was patient, persistent when needed, and reasonably priced. They did not nickel and dime me - ever. Her paralegal, Yanna, is kind, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I have and will continue to refer people to Mindi.

AMAZING
I would recommend Mindi and her office to anyone that feels backed in a corner by an unfair spouse. Mindi was by my side from start to finish and the outcome of my divorce was more than what I had expected it to be. I was able to call and email anytime and got all of my questions answered and she was always dead on. I am so happy this was resolved and was in my favor.

Great experience
Mindi was extremely helpful in handling my case- custody and child support modification. Her office had always responded to any questions I have had in a timely manner. She was aggressive when needed be, but at the same time very polite, pleasant and professional. Mindi did her best to settle the case through mediation and save me the headache and money of having to go through the court. Overall, she was realistic and understanding of my situation, showed compassion, but at the same time high level of professionalism. I am very thankful and would definitely recommend her services to a friend.

Powerhouse in your corner!
I had a long and drawn out divorce. I do not think I could have made it through without the help of Mindi and her ladies in the office. She had my best interest in mind with everything she handled. I cant say enough about my experience and would definitely recommend her firm to anyone that is going through a divorce. Yanna and Gloria were amazing throughout the whole process as well. Professional, honest, straight-forward, caring, and hardworking. Couldn't ask for a better firm in my corner!!!

Highly Recommend!
Mindi Lasley was highly recommended to me and she more than fulfilled all my expectations. I was helping a young friend with her case against the man with whom she has a child. Mindi was extremely patient. She went above and beyond again and again - even advising us long after the case was closed when she had no obligation to do so. She was professional, well prepared and obtained things in the settlement that we didn’t even ask for, things we did not know to ask for. Those things involved provisions that protect my friend and her child. I can see why she was so highly recommended. If you need someone in your corner who works hard, knows the law and is not afraid to fight for you I highly recommend Mindi Lasley.

Answered Prayer
Mindi, Yanna and Gloria were the answer to my prayers. Divorce is already a frustrating and painful process, and having to deal with lawyers who don’t return calls or emails or just don’t care, can make it worse. My divorce lasted 2.5 years and Mindi was the 3rd lawyer on my case. When I wasn’t getting anywhere with my first two lawyers and they kept billing me, I wished that I had a lawyer in my family or a close friend who could represent me sincerely and wholeheartedly. When Mindi,Yanna and Gloria took on my case , it felt just like that. They are able to understand a clients pain involved and work above and beyond to make sure their client gets justice. Mindi and team were able to get me child support from my ex-husband before even going to trial, which I wasn’t able to do with my previous two lawyers. My case went to trial and focused mainly on my sons (3.5yr) out of country travel to a non Hague convention country, and timesharing. Mindi was extremely prepared for trial and got me well prepared as to what to expect also. She researched several case laws of children who were taken to that specific country and not returned, and the negative impacts it had on the children. Both the judge and even opposing council commented on the amount of time and effort she must have put in to research the case laws. Also, because of her keen attention to detail, she was able to catch my ex-husband in a lie he said during depositions that took place 3 months before trial. My husband was asked to read from his deposition transcript, his own lie aloud in court, which even embarrassed me. During depositions, if she had overlooked, ignored, or failed to research those few sentences that my ex-husband uttered about his immigration, I would have had to let my son go to Hague convention countries at the very least, and fear him not returning bc my ex is not a US Citizen. Because of Mindi’s ability to pinpoint this and all her case law research and her absolutely amazing closing argument in trial, the judge ruled for my son to not even leave the country!! She also got me the timesharing that I desired. There were a few times during the process leading up to trial where opposing council tried to threaten and manipulate her from proceeding to trial altogether, but she was not intimidated at all. She stayed cool and composed and maintained her professionalism while responding back. Some other points about Mindi, Yanna and Gloria: they are organized, they always keep you updated on whats going on in the case, they send you copies of everything, they will return calls and emails within 24 hours, they always give their honest input but ultimately lets the client decide, always listens to everything you have to say, never interrupts or cuts you off when speaking, makes you feel that you’re their only client, makes time for you, prepares you for the worst, sincerely cares and is very reasonably priced. Lastly, I walked away from this experience not only as a satisfied client, but also a better person by just dealing with them. I see how their hard work positively impacted my life by saving me from a potentially disastrous future for me and my family. I work harder in my own line of work hoping that I can be a blessing in someone else’s life just like Mindi and team have been in mine. Thank you Mindi, Yanna and Gloria!!!

Best in Tampa
I hired my first attorney and fired him due to his lack of progress on the case. I found Mindi and she immediately fixed all his mistakes. She listened and actually cared about my family and the case. It's very hard to find a lawyer that cares about the client and not the money.
