    I handle all areas of divorce & family law, including child custody, parenting plans, child support, alimony, child support & alimony enforcement, relocation, and paternity. I am also trained in Collaborative Law.

    32 years, 1,000 cases

I consider myself a gentle warrior; I offer you patient, individual attention because you are struggling with the emotional weight of your legal problems. Of course, with my wealth of courtroom experience (beginning with his 6 years as an Assistant Public Defender), I fight for what's right in court when the situation requires that approach.

I promote Collaborative Divorce and Mediation because I know these no-court options provide more honor and respect to the restructuring of your family. ​I also mediate privately without attorneys. 

I have earned the respect of the local judiciary, my clients, and the legal community because of my sensitive approach, creativity, and dedication to my clients. I have the temperament to balance cooperation with litigation so your rights are preserved and your family is respected.

I have been AV rated by Martindale Hubbell (less than 15% of all lawyers are awarded this distinction) and have been recognized as a Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters.

When not spending time with my wife and three kids, I am usually cheering on the Florida Gators (especially the men's basketball team), listening to all genres of music, or listening to business podcasts. I wish I had more time to get out and practice street photography (look it up; it's a thing).

Outstanding and Genuine
Keith is amazing to work with. He explained things very well and responded to all my questions RE: the divorce process. He is very genuine and definitely has your best interest in mind. I knew I could trust him after our first meeting and he proved time and time again that the decision I made to work with him was the best I could have made. Divorce is difficult. It is scary, overwhelming and exhausting. Keith is someone you want in your corner!

Solving the emotions of divorce through collaboration
From day one Keith Grossman and office explained the advantages of collaborative law through the divorce process. I highly recommend Keith to minimize the emotional roller coaster and reduce the financial burden. Keith was very attentive; available; logical and empathetic through a sensitive time. He has published several books and papers which explain this venue in everyday language. it is critical to choose an attorney that is highly experienced and Keith fits the bill.

Your review is truly appreciated. We recognize that our clients are reorganizing their family through divorce, and they remain a family after the divorce. As you mentioned, I have written a number of articles about relationships and divorce, and they can be found at http://www.attorneygrossman.com/articles.html

Divorce
Divorce can be a difficult and emotionally charged time. Keith worked with me to help me understand the process and my choices and did so with compassion for my situation. He helped me prepare for my divorce and provided wonderful counsel.
Response from Keith Grossman June 8, 2018
Janette, thank you for your recommendation. Divorce can be so overwhelming that it's tough to understand the value of the different options, so I try to help my clients work through all of that. I'm super happy you felt I did that successfully for you.

Thoughtful, Realistic and Passionate About Helping Me Be the Best Parent During and After a Divorce
As I went through my divorce at the end of 2005, I so appreciated the enlightening advice to "think about what you want your children to see when they see you and your ex-wife together" (for example: when transitioning the children, or being at their school events). I realized I need to pull myself out of the negative & neutral emotions of the divorce, and really consider what was best, and most fair, for my children, my ex-wife and myself - both then, and for the future, too. These thoughts are what lead me to Keith, and not only did he have great insights, wisdom, and powerful thoughts about how to truly handle my divorce with in mind, he provided the path to do so much faster than if I tried to discover these things on my own. A HUGE Thank You to Keith for being such an instrumental part of having a good co-parenting relationship with my ex-wife, and being such a great role-model for how to be the best parent I can be, too.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Charly. It's so gratifying to know my team and I can help families like yours transition in a way that is respectful and honors each of you. Your awareness of how you can achieve that type of successful transition is huge, and it's not easy. Thanks again!

Doesn't know when negioation is off the table
I used this firm for my divorce two years ago with the hope of negotiating a reasonable settlement. It wasn't cheap and it wasn't reasonable. They need to recognize when they're not going to get a settlement and go on the attack or refer to you another firm.
Response from Keith Grossman January 30, 2018
If you go to my website, www.AttorneyGrossman.com, I clearly promote resolving divorce cases outside of court. I don't shy away from telling my clients that. Years of experience has proven that the vast majority of the cases work out better for my clients when they control the outcome rather than a Judge. Steve retained my office in July 2015. His wife retained an attorney in August 2015, which is when his wife filed her divorce lawsuit. Steve and I did not agree upon a strategy for how to proceed with his divorce case after our initial negotiation attempts were unsuccessful. Therefore, he began working with an associate attorney in my office who would take more of the litigation approach Steve desired. I only worked with Steve for two months. When the associate attorney left our firm in March 2016, Steve continued working with that attorney at a different law firm. I was not the attorney who finalized his divorce in December 2015, and I was not the attorney who represented him when additional litigation continued into 2016.

No Refund on any Deposit
Make sure your uncontested status will not change. Mine did and Mr. Grossman just sent me a list of other attorneys to contact. My $2000 retainer was forfeited as per his CONTRACT is NONREFUNDABLE!! I messaged him about a possible partial refund or credit towards his mediation services and he never even responded to me. Lesson learned, read the contract and DONT TRUST ANYONE to be upstanding. He received $2000 for doing ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!!!
