She gets the job!
Charlotte is a winner and will represent you as if you are her only client! She has negotiated for me 2 times over the past 10 years. We were winners in both cases.

It has been a positive experience working with Attorney Charlotte Fernee Kelly. She took the time out to discuss my case and made sure I understand what was taken place every step of the way. I couldn't thank her enough for helping me get through the darkest part of my career. Appreciate all her works and effort as my legal representative. Attorney Charlotte Fernee Kelly is not just a typical lawyer, but goes beyond what her job can offer. She gave me hope and strength to fight at times when I feel like giving up. My case was closed without going further to court. God bless you and your career. Please continue to be a blessing to all.

Great partner
Charlotte and I have been referral partners for over a year now. My clients, their families, and anyone else I've sent to Charlotte always return greatly satisfied with her work and the outcome of their case. I will continue to refer to Charlotte and appreciate her efforts with my referrals.

Charlotte Is A Blessing
I really wish I could give five more stars. I was feeling helpless about being denied for my unemployment benefits when I decided to request an attorney to review my case for an appeal. I had consulted with a local attorney who was not very helpful, and left me with a feeling of more doubt. Luckily, a friend referred me to Charlotte Fernee. Ms. Fernee immediately responded and provided a consultation. Within a few days of my appeal hearing, she was able to carefully analyze and prepare for my case for the unemployment appeal hearing. My family was quite impressed with Ms. Fernee's quick responses to any questions and concerns. Within minutes of my telephone hearing, her representation kept me calm and gave me the confidence that the ruling could be made in my favor. I am forever grateful for Ms. Fernee's service, and I highly recommend her. We can now claim VICTORY as my claim for unemployment was reversed and approved.

Former Attorney
Charlotte sued my employer, went through the litigation process, summary judgment process, and the beginning of trial prep. She kept me informed along the way and was very attentive. I was extremely satisfied with the result and that Charlotte was able to negotiate my termination to a resignation so I was able to get a new job and stay in the same career field. She genuinely cared about my issues.

Extremely Knowledgeable Attorney
I recently went to Ms. Fernee with an employment issue. Her advice was thorough and key to protecting my claim and resolving the issue in a timely fashion. I was very happy with her service and professionalism. I'd definitely recommend her and I'd go back to her if ever I needed additional help.

"Charlotte is a lawyer's lawyer. Her attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the law make her the "go-to" employment and labor attorney in Tampa. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jun 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I've been practicing in the area of employment law for about 30 years. Even after 30 years there are very few lawyers I would trust to represent me in an employment case. Charlotte is one of them. She is not only deeply versed in the most complex procedural and substantive issues, but she is willing to run across minefields to pursue her adversaries. It's that searing commitment to justice that makes her a top-flight trial lawyer. She's handled more federal civil rights cases than many lawyers twenty years her senior, and she has an outstanding record of success. For me, Charlotte Fernee is the model civil rights lawyer - smart, knowledgable, adaptable to any scenario and change, and determined to pursue wrongdoers at any cost. A truly exceptional lawyer with very rare qualities."
