Amazing Adoption Lawyer
I am extremely grateful for the exceptional work that Tammi Driver has done throughout our entire adoption process. From the very beginning, Tammi's knowledge, expertise, and compassionate approach have made us feel confident and reassured at every step of the way. She has gone above and beyond to ensure that all aspects of the adoption process were handled smoothly and efficiently, and she always made herself available to answer any questions or concerns that we had. Tammi's professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail have been exceptional, and her advocacy on behalf of our family has been truly remarkable. Thanks to her tireless efforts, we now have a beautiful daughter who has brought so much joy and love into our lives. We are forever grateful to Tammi and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced and caring adoption lawyer.

If you are looking for the best - Tammi is it!!
We are so blessed to have found Tammi. From the first phone call with Tammi, we knew right away that she was everything we could ask for in a lawyer. Her knowledge, perseverance, and compassion shines through her work. Tammi made our adoption process an amazing experience and we know it wouldn’t of been the same without her. She is the reason our family is complete and now feels part of our family. We highly recommend Tammi Driver and her firm!

Excellent Adoption Lawyer
I've just completed a stepparent adoption with the the help of my lawyer Tammi J. Driver. She's a professional whose experience drives results, and makes your experience seamless and personable. Everything was communicated to me in a manner I could understand and I felt taken care of. I will always recommend Tammi J. Driver as first choice for adoption attorneys. So stop your search, because you've found her.

best adoption attorney !
I came to Tammi, with the end result we wanted, but not knowing how to get there. Tammi knew exactly what todo and how to advise us. she and her team were so kind and helpful throughout the whole process. this was an infant adoption, not only did Tammi work with the hospital, everything was seamless! the process was long but Tammi and her team made it easy and we had a great experience. If I were to adopt again or have a friend who was going thru the process, I would send them to Tammi Driver!

I will NEVER forget this VIP in our lives!
Tammi was with me on an adoption journey that ended badly. 2 years later, we were presented with the idea again and I knew immediately who to call. Tammi is by far amazing. She stayed calm through all of my emotion roller coaster up and downs, and handled all situations with professionalism and grace. We are blessed to have worked with Tammi! 10 out of 10!

Stepfather Adoption
Tammi stuck with us through a prolonged international custody battle, and navigated getting the hiding defendant found and served. She did a great job keeping things calm throughout, was gracious and approachable with our child, and charismatic and competent during the hearings with a new judge on rotation.

Adoption,
Ms. Driver was my Att. In adopting my daughter. Many years ago we tried to adopt my daughter, but kept running into road blocks. So we tried again, I was referred to Ms. Driver, and within months, Ms. Driver did what we wanted to do years ago. I am so Blessed for her services. She did all this during the pandemic. She is the best, at getting things done.

Two Florida Adoptions
Tammi helped us navigate two separate Florida adoptions. Being from out of state, she helped take away our concerns and make us feel comfortable with what can be a very volatile and scary process. She's as ethical and professional as they come. We're thankful for the role she played in what will forever be our family's story.

Services for Adoption
We hired Tammi to help us with the adoption of our son, and we could not have asked for anyone better! Tammi was always quick to answer our questions and provided us with all the necessary services in a very timely manner. Not only did we feel like she (and her staff) took good care of us, but they took good care of our birth momma as well. We are grateful we connected with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for help with an adoption in Florida!

Compassionate and helpful
Tammi helped us in a step-parent adoption and it was done in a timely manner. She always upheld a professional demeanor and was very compassionate to our case. It was emotionally draining at times but she helped and executed everything timely and organized. I appreciate her and her assistant Joy beyond words could ever convey.

Excellent Service and Exceptional Staff
Tammi and her staff have always went above and beyond for our family. When our son was born, Tammi sat with us in the hospital waiting on the staff to discharge us, it was almost midnight before we were let leave. Now, we have just finalized our second adoption (baby girl!!) with them, without them we would have been lost in the adoption process.

Highly Recommended for Adoption
My husband and I are so glad we hired Tammi and could not recommend her enough. Tammi and her staff were there as a constant reassurance of making sure our adoption was ethical and that all parties were aware of legalities while being kind and supportive to us and our daughter's birth mother. She also helped us find an additional lawyer so that our daughter's birth mother would have her own legal representation to make sure she was fairly represented and informed during the process. They always went above and beyond during our process and finalization. We will always recommend Tammi for those searching for an adoption attorney and are so thankful for her guidance in the adoption of our daughter. We would hire Tammi and her staff again in a second!

Amazing. Wonderful. Miracle worker.
I hired Tammi for adult adoptions for both my daughters. She was very thorough. Explained everything that needed to happen in detail. For my 2nd adoption, she made a miracle happen when our final court date was during the pandemic, she arranged for the court hearing with the judge in her office. I’m so grateful for Tammi and her team. She was affordable and caring and simply a wonderful person. My daughters and I are so impressed with her work. Thank you, Tammi.

So thankful for Tammi
My wife and I were put into contact with Tammi due to our relationship with Destiny Adoption. We adopted our first baby girl last year very out of the blue, and once placement had occurred and the long finalization process initiated, Tammi provided our legal services (along with her legal assistant Joy). This involved filing lots of paperwork with the court and keeping us appraised of timelines and providing crucial legal documents as they came in. As finalization approached, Tammi's clear communication, prompt response to questions, and calm demeanor carried us through. When we had to reschedule our initial hearing due to illness, Tammi was very responsive, and she further showed great adaptability and walked us through everything when COVID-19 seemed to threaten our rescheduled hearing. Finalization is now complete and we are very grateful for her services.

Great advocate and partner to have in your adoption journey
Tammi and her team did a great job for our family in our adoption journey. She was very accessible, thorough, and compassionate as we sorted through all of the details in the process. She was also very honest with us and never sugar coated the tough issues, which we appreciated. We would highly recommend her team!
