I have been practicing family law since 2003.  While I was in law school, I worked at the State Attorney’s office in Gainesville handling domestic violence cases,  At that time,  I was a Fellow with the Center for Children and Families at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.  I attended Law School as "non-traditional" student, and a single mother of three. After graduating from law school, my focus remained on family law.  

My first law practice after passing the Bar was exclusively focused on family law issues.  I worked with attorney Robert L. Appleget, Jr. for the last 6 years before establishing my own firm.  I am proud to be a Florida native and I have resided in Ocala since 1991. I am always a little amazed by attorneys who live in one county and practice in another.  I am active member of the community and have loved being a resident of North Central Florida. 

I have published a coloring book for children who have experienced or witnessed domestic violence to help them make some sense of that trauma. This coloring book called, "When Families Fight," was used by various local agencies for children who experienced domestic violence situations.  I am very proud of this contribution back to my community.  It’s a real pleasure to give back to the community that has been so supportive!

My staff and I truly understand what our clients are going through, and because we understand, we care. We are there to show compassion when clients experience extreme emotional stress, and we are there to represent their interests aggressively throughout their divorce.

 

My strenghts and style in my practice are compassion, understanding, good-listening skills, a solid work ethic, and integrity are what define me. While my clients know that I am busy, I will never let my clients feel that they are forgotten. I will always try to return phone calls within 48 hours and my clients can contact me via email for a faster response. One of the things that I saw most frustrating to clients is not being able to reach their attorney when they need them. I try very hard to stay in touch with my clients.

Excellent Attorney and Staff
Anne and her staff are excellent. They provided outstanding legal representation during a very difficult process. Knowledgeable, professional, prompt and cost effective, everything a divorce attorney should be. Highly recommend this law office. Thank you Anne, Heather, Lainey and Denise!

Best lawyer
Ms. Raduns and her staff are efficient, empathetic, and extremely professional. Questions were always answered in a timely manner. While enduring the process of a long and difficult divorce, Ms. Raduns and her staff were thoroughly prepared for Court proceedings having reviewed and presented all applicable case law pertinent to my case. I highly recommend Ms. Raduns and would not hesitate to consult her regarding any Family Law matter.

Update to Zero stars - My deepest apologies
After writing my review on Ms. Raduns, several factors were brought to my attention that I was unaware of and regret what I had posted. At the final closing of my case Ms Raduns had explained her situation and did try her best to handle my situation to the best of her abilities at the time. Unfortunately I am unable to remove my original post. Please again accept my sincere apologies. I wish that things had turned out differently and I do respect your efforts.

Best Litigator Ever -- UPDATE -- FIVE STARS AREN'T ENOUGH
This is an update to a review I initially wrote in 2016. In the previous review I said that Anne is the best litigator I've ever met, and I've been a lawyer for well over 20 years! In addition to all the things I said in that review -- which remain true -- Anne continued representing me for another 2 years after my children and I relocated to California. During that time, my ex-wife's lawyer tried all sorts of procedural games to keep jurisdiction over the case in Ocala. Anne's opposing counsel was one of the local "good ol' boys" who has the integrity of a jackal (and the arrest record to prove it, but I digress). Anne triumphed over all sorts of puffery, gamesmanship, dishonesty and vitriol. She was patient, steadfast, professional, always prepared, unflappable in the face of literally years of the most rigid and ridiculous opposition you can imagine! She kept me sane when there were many times I'd otherwise have lost my mind. Eventually she wore out even Mr. Board Certified Windbag, and he gave up and went away with his tail between his legs. Thank you, Anne. You are the best.

The Best Litigator I've Ever Worked With
There are not enough stars to give an adequate review for Anne Raduns. I've been practicing corporate law for 20 years. I deal with lawyers in virtually everything I do. There are good ones and bad ones out there. Anne is a great one. I came to Anne with a highly unusual and very complicated custody conflict involving my two young sons. If you've never dealt with the family court system, you can't begin to appreciate the complexity, the delays, and the uncertainty. Anne can't make those things go away, but she can help you -- like she helped me -- get through them while preserving your sanity. And she got the best possible outcome for my sons and me, in what seemed like eons but in reality was an incredibly short period of time. (Did I mention that family court does not move swiftly?) There are two extremely important things I saw during my work with Anne. The first, and probably the most important, is that the judges trust her and respect her. They know she's not going to come into court with some puffed-up blather or some unfounded sob story: if she says something in court, it's the truth, and the judges know it. The second thing relates to the first: for clients, family law can be highly emotional, highly charged and conflict-ridden. I'm an emotional person by nature, so that was true in spades for me. Anne knows how to manage that -- how to keep clients from losing their minds when it seems to be taking forever, when the "other side" is misbehaving, when things just don't seem to make sense. She's backed up by Jodi, an amazing paralegal, and by a first-class legal office. If she tells you something, you should believe it. If she takes your case, you're the luckiest client in Marion County, for sure, and maybe anywhere. Hire Anne Raduns. Then trust her and do what she says. She's an amazing lawyer. If you would like to discuss my recommendation, please get my contact information from Anne and call me. You will be amazed at how great she is.

Don't hire anyone else!!
Honest, professional, trustworthy, timely, fair, fighter and works with integrity. What more can I say? I started with an attorney from Orlando who was terrible. I was referred to Mrs. Raduns by a friend and although it was hard to switch in the middle of a divorce, Mrs. Raduns office took right over and handled things very well. They all have your best interest at heart and work hard for resolution. You could use another attorney group, but why would you? Don't waste your time surfing around when the best is right here. Trust me on this one, you won't be disappointed! Tony

The Best
I highly recommend Mrs. Raduns and everyone in her practice. They have been there with our family through everything and still continue to be there for us even today as you read this review. The dedication put forth from Mrs. Raduns, Jodi, and Charity has gone well above our expectations. From the divorce, child custody issues, guardian ad litem, continued false allegations they have been there for us every step of the way. She was very kind, thorough and understanding of the situation. She was/is very patient with everything given the situation. If you are looking for someone who is looking for your best interest and willing to actually listen to your needs and worries during a difficult situation this is the right attorney for you. Mrs. Raduns and her team are all very approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys in the trade. A steadfast and passionate advocate when you are dealing with a case like mine. She is definitely a bull dog when confronting non-reasonable people.When needed, he steered me away from pursuing trivial issues based on emotions, and I appreciated her candor and common sense. Anne is practical, knowledgeable, and a demonstrated a leader in family law leader. I would highly recommend Anne Raduns and her team.

Great Attorney! Very Knowledgeable and Professional
Ms. Raduns is an awesome attorney and great to work with. She is very knowledgeable and professional. When we first contacted her regarding a supplemental petition the former wife filed to change visitation and parenting time, she was able to get the petition dismissed because the former wife violated a statute in the petition. When the former wife filed another petition, we were not as fortunate to get it dismissed but Ms. Raduns was very articulate in the answer. Because the former wife never pursued mediation or anything else, the case sat open on the dockets for over about a year. Eventually, Ms. Raduns filed a motion for Judgment so the case could be formally closed. Even now when we have issues with the former wife, we can contact Ms. Raduns for legal advise and representation. We appreciate her candor and her aggressive manner of handling cases in the best interests of her clients.

Highly recommend this attorney
She will give you a very honest evaluation of your case. It might not be what you want to hear but what you need to hear. She helped me get custody of my children. She told me that I had a "good" case not a "great" case, but she helped me all the way and my kids are back with me. She returned calls promptly (usually the same day) and always answered the emails I sent her. She was always prepared and always professional. I can highly recommend her. She was worth every penny.

Custody by Extended family member
Anne was very honest and extremly knowledgeable with this type of case. She was very aggressive in helping us to get and keep custody of our grandchildren. Anyone who is looking to gain custody of their grandchildren, could not find another attorney as good as she is.
Posted by anonymous | May 24, 2009
Very thorough and Prepared
When I was getting divorced, she helped me every step of the way. She helped explained what my rights were and what I could expect. She is very knowledgeable and helped me make informed choices. She returned my calls promptly and I really appreciate her help during a very stressful process.

Do not recommend
Lawyers are known to be the worst people ever, but her and her staff really take the cake! I would not recommend going to her, go elsewhere this is around family law! Very aggressive, prejudice, and unintelligent. Did not do her job.
Response from Anne Raduns October 5, 2022
Dear Anonymous: I always find these reviews suspect when they are posted by "anonymous." Could be an opposing party, but more likely someone that never hired my firm. The real reviews are left by people who used their names in the reviews. We work very hard and diligently to provide an excellent service to our clients as the real reviews show. I wish you well on your litigation endeavors. Anne Raduns
