A great-trusted Laywer
I hired Amy after a consultation regarding my circumstances of divorce. To me, this was very difficult time and I believed my divorce had some aspects which would make it a little more difficult to come to a resolution agreed by all. Any communication with Ami, Kelly or Katie and all office staff was always professional and knowledgeable regarding what was needed at the moment. The process truly went along seamlessly and more quickly than I had anticipated. Any questions asked by me were always responded to within the same day. Mediation day with Ami went well. We were able to settle to a agreement for all. Ami is a tough, straightforward honest lawyer. That was what was needed for my case. She was even concerned about financial toll that the divorce cost to complete the process. I am now divorced and very thankful to Ami and staff! Thank you all!

Honest, Fearless & Knowledgeable
I interviewed with two other highly rated attorneys in Ocala before I hired Ami. In the beginning stages of my divorce I was very scared and unsure about the process. She was the only attorney to show sympathy for me, while being very clear honest about what I could expect. My divorce was very contested, but Ami was a rock I could depend on to get me through all the difficulties. She is an extremely smart and determined attorney, the kind that you should have when faced with legal dilemmas. I am satisfied with the work she has done for me and I consider her a friend. Not sure many people can ever say that about their attorney! Ami- Thank you for holding my hand through this process, you are my guardian angel!

Outstanding Service and Value
Ami and Charity worked with me through my very difficult divorce and not only provided me with professional advice, but also provided me with assurance and comfort through out the entire process. Ami and the team are great to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone that has to go through such an unfortunate situation. Dan

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Ami for a difficult situation and she and Charity M. went above and beyond for me. Her staff was very helpful, always answered questions and returned my calls when I needed them too. Charity kept in close contact with me and relayed messages between us and when it came to court appearances Ami was there to fight for me and finally with all this Covid19 going on got me the results I was looking for. I am very happy with her and her excellent staff. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great and knowledgeable attorney.

Lioness of Divorce Law
I had hired Mrs. Dilorenzo to help me in a difficult divorce matter after a long term marriage. During the initial free consultation, Mrs. Dilorenzo explained exactly how the system works and where I stand. She was very to the point, very precise, very knowledgeable and did not sugar coat it. Immediately, I knew I wanted her in my corner. She was very responsive throughout the process and she would immediately answer my inquiries either via email or telephone. She would contact me periodically via phone as to the progress of my case. Her office personnel is wonderful as she is. Her paralegal Charity is very knowledgeable and very responsive as well. Mrs Dilorenzo's billing was very accurate and it was done on a monthly basis. I am very glad I had Mrs. Dilorenzo on my side and I would recommend her legal services to anyone in need of a top notch divorce attorney.

Very Knowledgeable - strongly recommend!
My situation was a little complex and it was more of a safety issue that I wanted sole custody. Amy was very blunt with me on the odds of getting that. It allowed me to really strategize and be patient with the system. There was a little bit of a turnaround with some questions, but anything urgent was responded to immediately. Honestly, if you call you get an immediate answer as well. I'm very pleased with her and her staff. She knows her craft and knows the reality of what you are going through. (I was even able to get sole). Very grateful! if it weren't for her being honest with me, I would have rushed the process and the outcome would not have benefited my kids. She may be more business than sugary sweet, but that's what you need in an attorney and it's obvious she cares about the best interest for you as her client.

They are wonderful!
When I reached out to Ami, I had already gone through some frustrating moments with my divorce. I tried to push to settle things out of court and even when I did, my ex-husband got my case thrown out. I left the majority of what my ex-husband and I owned with him. He wasn't seeing our daughter or paying any sort of support. I was tired. I was depressed. I wanted to fight for my daughter and what she needed but I was tired of fighting for myself at some points. Ami and her wonderful staff were there every step of the way. When I was nervous going into court, she was able to offer guidance and her wonderful personality made the events smooth and honestly, her presence brightened my day. Living in Jacksonville, I didn't get a chance to see her often, but we spoke on the phone quite a bit and whenever I went to ramble she reined me back in and help get me to the point. Whenever I seemed to be making a bad decision, she helped guide me to the correct one with her professional knowledge of the system. She was truly wonderful. A real force to be reckoned with! She is to the point, and I completely agree with the tough love attitude. I will always be grateful for the hard work and diligence her and her staff put forth to settle my seemingly never-ending case! I have bragged about her from start to finish! - Bobbie-Jo

Ami helped my family during a custody battle. Ami was quick and efficient with my time. She was able to be reached through email or phone calls with a fast response time. Ami and her staff kept me informed along way and made navigating the court system as easy as it could be. I couldn’t be happier with her services!

EXCELLENT CLIENT ADVOCATE
Divorce for most people is a stressful situation mostly if there are children involve like in my case. It is one of my biggest fears as I was born in Asia that has no divorce law. I have seen women and children suffered because of the cultural stigma, they have no voice. I too had endured the suffering for a long time believing that it will get better but it got worse. I took a big step and gave AMI DILORENZO’s office a call and now I’m officially divorced. AMI DILORENZO P.A is a tough, smart and strong lawyer and she represented me very well. She explains and communicates clearly, very experienced, composed and always available. My divorce process was painfully long took almost 2 years but I felt safe and secured as Ami and her team is there very responsive, quick to act but very smart with legal advices. I remember when she told me to technically protect the children and keep them out of what is happening. That’s what I did that every time my kids will ask me or voice their concerns, I tell them “kids focus on your studies and let mommy take care of the adult stuff”. In the beginning, I was trying be assertive because I felt that I’m on my own, no family nearby, no friends, just me and my children but when I had my first mediation with Ami I knew that my rights will be protected. She taught me how to listen to every question and not to be emotional. She reviews every document that was presented to us and objects when she sees discrepancies. She tells me what’s going to happen next and what to prepare. If I need to ask her something even on a weekend she responds. These qualities that she has as a lawyer made me feel safe, secured, and protected. I trust her and her team. They’re experts on this field. Katie Knepper , also a lawyer did an excellent job on finding significant information related to the case and a good resource person too. She works hand in hand with Ami. Kelley, the office manager sounds really serious on the phone but very nice in person. Ami Dilorenzo’s Law office located in Ocala is highly recommended. Doesn’t matter where you came from she will make sure that you will get the justice that you deserve. Thank you so much AMI, Katie and Kelley.

Proven to be the best!!
I do not even know where to begin to thank Ami, Katie and Kelley. Ami Dilorenzo sets the bar extremely high for her staff, and does not expect less than what they are capable of. I went to Ami for my divorce. My ex-wife wanted to handle all of this ourselves, and me being the fool I followed and agreed. I later received a letter in the mail from HER attorney. I received this about a week before we were due for mediation. Totally not what was agreed upon, I went to Ami's firm and filled out the paper work and explained why it was short notice. Ami made it clear that she was there for me and was willing to fight for me to the very end. She is very honest and will not sugar coat anything. If you do not like the honest truth from your attorney (a mouth of a sailor), then she is not for you. She’s not afraid of calling BS on anything. Ami knows the law extremely well and has the passion and drive to represent her clients to the fullest extent. I will continue to keep in touch with Ami in case something arises in the future. I hope I will never need her help again, but if something should happen, I will be going back to my attorney Ami Dilorenzo. I would also like to thank Ami's wonderful staff. Kelley is an amazing asset to the firm, being the Office Manager she is always willing to go the extra mile to help me understand something or just to say hey you forgot to sign here. Katie is also an attorney that works with Ami and handles a lot of the paperwork/document prep at the firm. She went above and beyond on multiple occasions to make sure everything was correct, and made this process much easier than I could have expected. Thanks Ami for everything!

Integrity, Knowledgeable, Professional
I was living in a different state other than Florida when my wife served me with custody papers so I did my research before retaining Attorney Ami Dilorenzo. She came highly recommended by attorneys within and outside the area she practices. I worked with Ami for a year and during that time I have had several interactions with her via email and phone. Ami can come off a little abrasive at times but she does care and hold a passion for her work as a lawyer. She has immense integrity which was the ultimate factor that tipped me over to retaining her even though it seemed we clashed a bit in the beginning. During the year she represented me Ami has shown she can be swift and decisive when needed. She is very knowledgeable of Family Law in Florida and while at times I wondered what was being done my worries were put to rest time and time again with proof of the research and effort she put in on my behalf. Part of my wife's atrocious behavior eventually came to light and, due to Ami and her associates research, found a favorable resolution for my twin girls and myself where I feared just would not happen. I did get to meet Ami for the very final hearing that took place in Florida and can say she is very professional and helped to keep me calm, showing patience and understanding. If things turned out poorly for my girls and me I would be writing much the same review as I do now. I highly recommend Ami Dilorenzo to anyone who needs a knowledge lawyer in Florida Family Law. It was my privilege to retain Ami and while I am not saying everyone who decides to retain her will come out on top, I know she will fight tooth and nail for the best possible resolution for her clients. 5 Stars

Together At Last
Two high school sweethearts found each other again, after 50 years, both struggling in failing marriages. After 4 more years of telephone conversations, talking each other through difficult, never ending strife, we decided we needed to see each other again. There was no turning back. Enter Ami, exit anxiety and stress. One divorce was uncontested and went very smoothly. The other was very difficult, in that the opposing party refused to obtain representation and insisted upon representing herself. Ami navigated through those treacherous waters with skill and patience. She was always responsive to our questions and calmed our nerves on many occasions. We only ever met one other member of her staff, Kelley, who was pleasant, efficient and also very responsive. Now, happily married, we are most grateful to Ami and her staff for helping us make our dream come true ... to be together at last.

Thank you!
I was fairly new to the Ocala area and unfortunately became in need of a divorce lawyer. I turned to Google and searched high and low but continued to be drawn to Ami. There was a picture posted of her with her cat; (may sound funny) but I felt if she was an animal lover she would be the best fit for my children and I. I couldn't have made a better decision. At times I felt the communication was lacking but Kelly her secretary assured me everything was right on track and sure enough it was. Kelly always went above and beyond to make sure I was informed and satisfied. Always professional and whole heartedly caring; and always remembered my name. Katie her assistant gave me a complete run down of my case before trial and calmed my nerves when I was losing ground. The paperwork she maintained was very well organized and right on point. Ami was a shark in the courtroom! She left no room for error. NONE!! Some of the questions she asked at the beginning of my trial initially didn't make sense, until she was able to counter almost everything. Once it was coming full circle it was like a breath of fresh air and the weight began to lift. Ami was very direct. Always told me what I needed to hear; not what I wanted to hear. She directed my nervous energy elsewhere but Ami is your lawyer not your therapist. I was such a wreck at times, I had so much to say but Ami politely cut me off and went for facts over feelings. Ami was attentive and thorough and will always guide you in the right direction throughout your case just be patient and trust her and her team. She is very stirn and doesn't play around. In any legal situation I would want Ami on my side without a doubt. My divorce wasn't easy by a long stretch but I am beyond thankful that I chose her and her team. They cannot be beat!! I would recommend Ami to anyone and kind've feel sorry for anyone on her opposing side- I also would like to point out that her office is very welcoming and charming; not the typical white walls most attorneys have.

Absolutely excellent lawyer
I needed a good divorce lawyer for my complicated divorce and found Ami through her great reviews on Google. I called her up and she agreed to take my case. Since my divorce was complicated and international, I had been through three other lawyers in two other countries before I found Ami. Boy, what a difference!! Ami is everything you could ask for in a lawyer. She is just the person you need when going through such a difficult time in your life. Ami is both very caring and very professional. When I asked other lawyers questions, they would send me long articles to read, be unavailable, or respond very slowly and vaguely. I also got the impression with other lawyers that they really just wanted to drag things out. Not Ami: she is dedicated to her clients and really cares. Ami would respond quickly and answer my questions in plain English. I felt I had a friend and a very knowledgeable ally. Her advice was spot on, she knew when to act and when to hold back, and she sorted everything out in a timely manner. I very highly recommend Ami DiLorenzo to anyone looking for a divorce lawyer.

Amazing!
I hired this attorney after doing A LOT of research and talking to a ton of lawyers. My family has received a considerable amount of relief from the court since she came on our case. Ms. DiLorenzo knows the law and knows what to do in the worst situations. I am confident that the end result will be in the best interest of our family. Also, the office staff is very professional. My questions and emails are answered in a timely fashion, and I am always sent a detailed invoice so there is no question about my bill. Thanks, Ami! UPDATE: We won! What a nasty and ugly case! I was incredibly impressed by Ami's skill in the courtroom. She was able to get all of the necessary evidence in to prove our case. She masters the element of surprise. By following her advice through out the process we were able to show the court what they needed to see about me, and the lies and deceptions of the case became evident. After almost 2 years of restricted contact with my daughter, from her father, I have been granted majority time sharing and am able to take my daughter back home to another state. Ms. DiLorenzo is an excellent attorney, and I am so thankful to have found her on this journey. My family is truly blessed! Thanks!!!
