About Teresa

Learn Teresa’s areas of practice.

Mrs. Teresa O. Prescott founded Prescott Legal in 2017 with the goal to introduce a new approach to the practice of Family Law. She set out to create a new model built on a modern, transparent, and compassionate method of practice.

Prescott attended Stetson University College of Law where she was named the Research and Writing Oral Argument winner. As a student, Mrs. Prescott served as an associate in the Center for Excellence, where she was one of four students selected to complete a Fellowship in Higher Education Law and Policy.

Throughout her fellowship, Mrs. Prescott dedicated herself to the interdisciplinary study of federal and state policy, with an emphasis in Title IX and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Mrs. Prescott joined the McKinney Law Group in early 2015. While there, she focused primarily on Divorce Law, Cohabitation, Special Needs Children, High-Conflict, Emotionally-Sensitive Family Law issues, trial advocacy, and appeals. In 2017 Prescott left The McKinney Law Group, to open her own legal practice built on a new approach to practicing Family Law.

Mrs. Prescott believes that education is a vital part of the community, and spends her time tutoring children in local schools throughout Hernando, Pasco, and Hillsborough County. By working with the community to promote and improve education, Mrs. Prescott takes great pride in the fact that she is able to give back to the education system that gave her so much.

Honest and Amazing
Teresa is an amazingly gifted attorney with a supreme knowledge of the law that plays out epically in the court room. She knew exactly what to do with my case even after all other attorneys I spoke with said my case was too complicated. Teresa explained everything to me and gave me a play by play as to the possible outcomes. Going into the courtroom I felt confident with her preparation. She is truly anointed in her calling.. Watching her in the courtroom is like watching Grace. She is thoughtful and honest and has a genuine concern for all parties involved. I truly can't say enough good things about Prescott Legal.

Focused...On Point!
Mrs. Prescott listened carefully and helped me determine a plan of action. While I am feeling overwhelmed—it is important to have her professional, compassionate, experience to rely on when making decisions. I was extremely impressed with her entire team!

Happy client!!!
I would like to just give praise to my attorney, Teresa. She has been a life save throughout the roughest time in my life. She has been over prepared at every hearing, every appearance and outdone her self every SINGLE time. She has kept me in the loop of things every step of the way. She has fought for my daughter within the best interest of her. My daughter's father lives in another state and has taken me back to court every year of my daughters life. Teresa and her staff are been nothing short of amazing. Her knowledge of law so in depth and her quick wit in the court room have resulted in letting the truth prevail, every single time. If you are looking for a family law attorney, who does right by her clients, who has not ONCE over charged me for her time and been thorough and honest throughout the entire process, I would highly, highly recommend her!

Compassionate, Determined, Amazing Lawyer!
Teresa has not only represented myself in my child custody case, but gone above and beyond for the rights of my disabled child. She has stayed on top of every aspect of my case, and fought for the greater good! She is very flexible with her schedule and shows her true passion for being a family lawyer. She is very well spoke and stays up to date with all new and old legislations. I will continue to recommend her to everyone in need of a family lawyer.

Highly satisfied!
Mrs. Prescott has been heaven sent. I was represented by an attorney prior to hiring Teresa who was very uninformative. My prior attorney did not care to keep me updated, nor work on my case as he promised. I hired Teresa and from day one she has kept me up to date in every aspect. I feel like she has gone above and beyond for me as my case is very unique. I would highly recommend her!!

She Knows The Law And Truly Cares
I've watched her work on a case for someone very close to me and the compassion she brings to the process let's me know they are in good hands. She truly cares about kids and her clients best interest.
