The best attorney. Thank you Paul!
Paul Grondahl is an excellent attorney who really goes above and beyond for his client. Never once did I doubt I was in the best possible hands. He is a very knowledge and trustworthy person. He is extremely intelligent, and especially he is a good person, it means that he has values and a high sense of justice. He will work as hard for you, protecting your interests. He explains the law, outlines in clear language the steps in the process that are needed to be done, his experience makes you build confidence and peace of mind, also during turbulent times during a divorce process. I highly recommend Paul Grondahl as the best attorney in the area.

Outstanding Attorney in Manatee County
I interviewed three attorneys before carefully deciding who would best represent me and protect my child's interests. I confidently chose Paul because it just felt right. He is clearly passionate about his profession and getting the very best results for his clients. Paul is honest and truly cares. He quickly resolved my case without conflict or contention. As a direct result, I have a very good relationship with my former husband, which is the the very best outcome for our child.

Best Lawyer in town
This was my second time having to go to court and if I had known about Paul the first time I would of used him. Words can't even explain the compassion and honest work this lawyer did for me. Paul is for sure one smart lawyer, he would point out things that you might not even have thought about and looks at the picture through different angles. He was very reasonable in price and I felt when he said he was going to do something he did. I am going to miss our relationship that we developed and all the laughs, but also happy that you helped me win both trials. Great lawyer with a great and honest personality. Thank you Paul for all that you did for my daughter and I.

Great attorney
Paul Grondahl exceeded our expectations above and beyond. He was by far the best attorney that we have ever worked with. All we could think when working with him was, how we wished we could have found him years ago and hired him. He was very knowledgeable, caring, was able to work through difficult issues, and was on top of his game. Upon hiring Mr. Grondahl our situation changed quickly and it was evident through the other sides response. I would highly recommend him for anyone dealing with child support issues or anything to do with family law. You don't want to use anyone else!

Excellent attorney and extremely sharp
I had a very messy domestic violence and family law case that was combined and very complex. I interviewed countless Attorneys and they either turned it down or said they didn't have the knowledge to handle it. After multiple interviews I was referred to Paul by many attorneys and and his past clients. I began to lose hope honestly. Then I met with Mr. Grondahl and hired him on the spot. He had everything dealing with the case neatly organized in order (6 years worth of documents) on his Conference table and walked me precisly through the case in steps and was very factual in doing so. He was never vague he had complete command and knowledge of all aspects of what the current issues where and possible future ones. He then built a case and course of action that took out any future issues while resolving the current case . I had hired 5 lawyers the last 6 years for my family law case that where great attorneys but it always became long and drawn out cases that required more money of course. Mr. grondahl goal was to end my case in 6 weeks which he did and come under my retainer, so I could concentrate on my son and put my finances towards him. His qialifications speak volumes but combined with his ethics He was by far the best attorney I worked with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommned him to anyone. He is a fantastic attorney and is very honest and ethical.

Paul worked with me to create all documents, but then went MIA when it was time for action. Did not get back to me on the status of my case, but finally answered when I asked to close it, with an extremely small refund. I wasted over $2k working with him and had absolutely nothing happen as a result.
