Child Protective Investigation
My case involved a CPI investigation that a therapist reported against me. My son is autistic. I felt vulnerable and terrified. The report was found to be unfounded. Mr. Ramirez was kind and patient with me, as I was understandably very emotional. He represented me every step of the process. I called him the moment two sheriffs and the CPI worker arrived at my home. He remained on speakerphone, to ensure none of my rights as a parent or my children's rights were violated. He assured me what would happen and what to not allow to happen. The case was soon thereafter closed. Mr. Ramirez's handling of my case inspired me to go to law school to help other families. One day soon I will be in a profession to represent and help others in the same or similar situations.

Mr Carlos Ramirez
Mr. Ramirez is an outstanding person and an excellent levelheaded lawyer with years of experience. His team is equally fantastic. Maria and Teresa are wonderful caring human beings. Saved me a fortune and tolerated my frustration. Always returned my calls immediately and emails. He’s honest and a straight shooter. Even gave me free advice for my future. I love the man.

Great Lawyer
I contacted Carlos after reviewing a few lawyers that practice Family/Dependency law. After reaching out to his staff, they quickly mobilized to help support me even at very short notice. Carlos was quickly able to pull from his knowledge to explain to me legal processes involved and different options I could take. Although the case was extremely emotional and troublesome to me and my family, Carlos was compassionate but also logically explained how best proceed. Carlos also took time to help save money and reduce my total cost for the case. In the end, with his help, we are on the right track to put this situation behind us. If anyone is looking for a lawyer that understands Dependency and Family law, specifically when dealing with CPS, Carlos would be a great choice.

Collaborative Divorce
I was extremely impressed by Carlos and his team. He did a great job explaining the collaborative divorce process. He was also very flexible to my approach for preparing financial data and reviewing legal documents, which provided some savings on legal fees. Finally, he worked well with the other attorney and CPA to keep the process moving forward.

Outstanding!
Above and beyond! I know God allows circumstances in life to happen for a mayor reason and He is in charge to put the right people in your path that will drive you to the destination you are meant to go to. God brought me to Lawyer Carlos, a very experienced and knowledgeable lawyer in the field. His great team, experienced Paralegal, Teresa, and his very diligent Legal Assistant, Maria. A great team that I highly recommend. Besides great knowledge in the field, I felt protected by them as they fought for my rights in every single way. Teresa and Maria made me feel like Family. May God keep blessing them in every single way. Thank you!

Top Notch & Professional Attorney and Firm Staff
Throughout the most difficult 2 years of my life, Carlos Ramirez and his staff provided comfort and peace of mind throughout the duration of my difficult child custody case (involving an extremely unprofessional & overwhelming OPPOSING counsel) by handing it with the UTMOST professionalism. Mr. Ramirez and his paralegal truly understand the law and served as the voices of reason in the most emotional and frustrating of times I experienced, which only provided reassurance and eased my mind knowing that myself and my child were in the best of hands. I could not have asked for a better outcome to my case and was constantly impressed by how the firm operates in an organized, timely, patient, and extremely communicative manner. No wonder why Carlos Ramirez is so well-respected in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas. I highly recommend consulting/hiring him for your legal needs!

#1 Family Law Attorney
Carlos, Teresa and Maria are such amazing individuals. Imagine walking into a legal office and feeling like your the million dollar client even when your not. They treat your case as their own and are invested in making sure not only you as the client understand your case but also that they are not wasting money on unnecessary expenses to move the case along. While you as the client may become emotional, Carlos and Terea will ensure your case is strategically being handled from all aspects to ensure they obtain the most optimum result in your case. If your unsure who to hire to handle your garnishment case or modification for child support involving social security disability and VA compensation or frankly any family law case I cannot say it enough but to go with Carlos.

Answered all our questions; gave us peace of mind
Our case involved establishing full custody for a grandchild. While the process was consensual, the legal terrain was totally unfamiliar to us. Mr. Ramirez patiently explained the process, answering all of our numerous questions (including hypotheticals). We have left each appointment feeling better than when we came in.

Excellent Service
The only regret I have is not having hired Mr. Ramirez from the beginning of my legal battle. I can’t begin to describe what a pleasure it was having him and his team in my corner. Communication was always on point and comforting. My situation was tumultuous at times but I felt confident with Mr. Ramirez representing me. He was successful in my case and I received my desired outcome. I can’t recommend his services enough!

Looking for the BEST family attorney? Look no further!
Let's face it - no one wants to be in the position of needing to hire an attorney for a divorce. Collaborative or not, it is not something anyone really wants to do. The thought of searching to find the right attorney alone is daunting. If you've come across Carlos Ramirez, consider your search complete. You just found the pot of gold. My first visit to his office, I was a wreck, but not for long. Carlos was very personable and made me feel very comfortable. He was liberal with his time for my initial consult. He listened carefully to my situation, asked questions and gave me his professional assessment. He didn't sugarcoat anything - on the contrary, he made sure I was well informed and educated about my options, his expectations and what was to come. He explained the pros and cons of each potential strategy and shared his professional recommendation based on his knowledge and experience. Once I was able to identify my goals and which path I wanted to take, I was able to pass the reigns to him. His team, Teresa and Maria – if Carlos is the pot of gold, Teresa and Maria are the rainbow. This trio is a well-oiled machine, working hard on your behalf, seeing ahead, keeping you informed and prepared. They somehow, I'm still blown away at how, managed to finalize my divorce in 4 months (from consult to final judgment...and I didn't file until 45 days after my consult!) It was a very stressful and emotional time in my life - I don't know how I would have managed it all without this team. I had so much to deal with personally, emotionally and logistically and could have easily been lost in the legality of it all. Fortunately, I had this amazing team. They managed this all so well for me - it was a huge burden that I didn’t have to carry alone. They made me feel like I was their only client. I honestly don't know how they do it, but they do it and they do it exceptionally well! I hope to never need another family attorney, but if I do, I won't go anywhere else but to Carlos and his team. Simply and truly, the BEST!!!

Proficient Family Law Firm
I was referred to Ramirez Law Firm after my litigation began and was represented by a different attorney. My family law case was not looking favorable and I felt I needed more assertiveness during such a complicated situation that involved CPS, Medical Evaluations, etc. All to ensure my daughter was going to be in a safe environment. Maria & Teresa gave every effort to ensure a smooth transition of representation as well as throughout the very end. They are so professional, have integrity & are such kind individuals. Carlos is exactly the attorney you would want fighting for your child. He is extremely experienced, has a great attorney community presence, reputable, assertive & will keep you in areality state of mind especially dealing with delicate matters that any parent could easily let their emotions get the best of them. My case resulted in a safe agreement for my daughter to be in. Carlos & his team are well worth the investment.
