Review AnneMarie Rizzo

  • The best

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Chris

    AnneMarie is absolutely outstanding. We retained her in connection with a DUI case. She is smart, experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She is always totally focused on your case when talking with you and is available literally night and day to answer questions. She also strikes the right balance between being realistic about the case (not sugar coating) yet giving you confidence that things will work out as well as they can. The entire staff at the firm (shoutout to Katie, AnneMarie's assistant, and the receptionists) reflects these positive qualities. Other reviewers noted that her fee is on the high side. All I will say is that if you can do it, her services are worth it. Bottom line, she's the best.

    Hiring Attorney AnneMarie Rizzo was the best thing I could have possibly done. She was extremely professional and handled my case efficiently. After, during, and before all of my court dates, she was always there. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants an honest, hardworking attorney on their side.

    Words cannot explain how amazing AnneMarie was when handling my case. She was extremely prepared and knowledgable on the law. Minutes before our hotly contested hearing we were told our regular judge was backed up and we would be going in front of a different judge. This made me so nervous as the only thing I knew about this new judge was that he was one of the toughest to be in front of. AnneMarie was on top of her game when cross examining the main witness. She had her on the stand for close to two hours having to endure the powerful AnneMarie. AnneMarie moved to have my case dismissed which the judge denied at first but after hearing further evidence and argument by AnneMarie he agreed and my case was thrown out. Her on the spot adaptive ability to change gears with this harsh judge and effective arguments was worth every penny of her high fee. You definitely get what you pay for with Annemarie. On top of it all she is very compassionate and passionate. I felt like she was arguing like I was a family member of hers...totally from the heart.

    Annemarie Rizzo is a godsend. She took care of everything, without me ever having to appear in court myself. She was able to get me a deal, that everyone else said I wouldn't be able to get, that will get all charges dropped.

    I hired Annemarie for my daughter's case in Sarasota. Of course since this was my daughter we shopped around for the best. My husband, daughter and I narrowed the list down to 3 and Annemarie was the one we chose (although I must say she was the most expensive). However, Annemarie did everything she promised. She fought hard for our daughter's case, she didn't sugar coat anything, was informative, was passionate, gave us every detail and helped us make the best decisions. This could have impacted our daughter's life in the long term and Annemarie was able to file motions keeping the breath test out and negotiate an outcome that prevented our daughter from being convicted of the offense. Annemarie's office staff was also very helpful. There is a reason you pay more for Annemarie...she provides you with the top notch service as does her staff. My daughter learned a valuable lesson the hard way but thankfully to Annemarie she won't forever be haunted by her bad decision.

    AnneMarie was my attorney for a recent DUI. Her and her staff were very prompt and always there to answer any questions, no matter how small. She outlined exactly what to expect since it is such a confusing time. A DUI is an awful experience but she made it much more tolerable and would recommend her to anyone.

    Although there are lawyers in the area that are less expensive, AnneMarie is worth every penny and more. She is extremely smart and tough and will fight for you like you're family. She was very patient explaining all of the different options and possible outcomes (multiple times and in laymen terms). My tickets were thrown out and she really saved me! I've recommended her to my family and friends and all agree that she really is the best.

    AnneMarie was phenomenal. My situation had me scrambling for three days before I had to go out of town for work and she assisted with everything, from understanding what was the next step, to keeping me informed of what to expect at each court appearance. If you balk at the price, just remember, there are things you get with an attorney like AnneMarie that you would not get with a public defender. (For instance, someone to insist on receiving a video that apparently had gone to a different precinct all together.)
