Fantastic, Resilient, Game Changer
"When I reached out to Richelle I knew I had an uphill battle, battles that I had previously lost and left me feeling hopeless. As a Dad seeking primary custody, I felt all odds were stacked against me, until I met Richelle. Right off the bat she made me feel like I was her only client, diving deep into my current situation and laying out a flawless foundation that ultimately led to victory! Highly intelligent, Richelle outsmarted opposing counsel every step of the way and left opposing counsel with little to no case at all. Watching opposing counsels frustrations and defeat written on his face really showed how well Richelle presented and attacked every angle of my case. Compassionate, Richelle never treated me like I was just another case. I truly felt that she cared about me and my family and wanted what was best for us and her fight in the courtroom proved that. Richelle was always ready available, there were many of instances where I needed to speak with her after hours or on weekends and she was always just a ring or text away. A true warrior in the courtroom, and she does it with no ego. If your looking for a warrior to lead you through battle, who attacks and doesn’t let go until the battle is won then Richelle is your attorney. She is a game changer, I am forever grateful for her dedication to my case and her fight to win. I highly recommend Richelle, you don’t want to see her at the other end of the table."
A class of her own!
"Family law in general is extraordinarily hard. Needing a family law attorney, means you need an attorney that will protect your most prized possession, your child. Richelle is that attorney! Without getting into the specifics of my case, it was a hard one. Fathers tend to feel like they have one arm tied behind their back, in the family courtroom. Not with Richelle. Richelle won me and my daughter a new life. I went from being an every other weekend, dad to the custodial parent, and I was also allowed to relocate my daughter out-of-state to attend a specialized school for her needs. A two-year litigation case turned into the biggest victory not only for my life but for my daughter's life. Richelle saved my child. During the duration of my case, Richelle never lost sight of the end goal, never stopped advocating for me, and always made me feel heard, understood, and cared about. I wish someone would have told me a long time ago, my rights as a father matter, and with the right help (RICHELLE), my voice can be heard and change can be made. Aside from Richelle being the best advocate in the state of Florida, she also has a brilliant legal mind! I was facing a barbarian for an opposing party and at every turn, Richelle had them outgunned with her litigation tactics and case planning. Richelle is a warrior. Hiring an attorney is an intimating process. They use a lot of lingo and words, most civilians don't understand and you're forced to simply "trust them". You can trust Richelle, and by doing so, you hired the best attorney for your case."
The absolute best!
"Where to even begin….In what has been the most difficult time in my life, Richelle has been a godsend. There is no one else I’d rather go to battle with other than Richelle. Always incredibly well prepared, she stays a step ahead with her tireless dedication. I feel as if she’s thought out every possible outcome or situation and has a plan to adjust if needed. In a tough situation, it was reassuring to have someone who was actively working for the right outcome, as opposed to simply reacting. Richelle made me feel as if my case was her most important and only concern. It doesn’t matter the time or day, my emails or calls were always addressed. I can’t express how reassuring it is to see “Richelle” pop up on the phone when I just had to talk with her. She is brilliant, a bulldog with an appetite for winning , compassionate, and absolutely the one that you want in your corner. I’ll forever be grateful for what Richelle and her team have done for me .
Wow! What a rock star!
"To tell you the truth, the first time I met Richelle, I thought she seemed quiet and reserved. I wondered if she had the fierceness that would be necessary to help my friend fight for her child. Then I talked to her specifically about this case, and suddenly, I saw the fighter come out! I realized she was like a tiger, crouching, and ready to pounce! She was passionate about the injustice she saw in the situation and seemed to know exactly what legal moves we needed to take. My hope grew. Then, I saw her in the courtroom. Wow! The tiger pounced! She spoke so confidently to the judge and the other players in the situation, and believe me, they sat up and took notice. I think they suddenly realized my friend could no longer be pushed around by the system. And yet, Richelle did this without ego, and without the need for accolades. She just wanted to get the job done. Within just weeks after my friend hired her, Richelle did indeed get the case dismissed. She knew what legal moves to make, she ensured that my friend felt confident in those moves, and she directed her as to exactly what steps she needed to take to protect her child and support her case. What I really appreciated was how patiently she would listen to my friend during the process, bolster her confidence, and make herself and her legal secretary available for any necessary detail—without wasting time or money. She really passionately cared about the situation. She very quickly gave my friend the protection and the direction she needed to turn the situation around. When hiring a lawyer, it's so important to find the right fit. To find someone who will fight for you. To find someone who will answer your questions and make sure your needs are met without wasting your time or money. Richelle was that person for my friend. I feel confident she will be fighting for many more underdogs over the course of her career, and I bless her for it. Thank you, Richelle. You were a rock star.“
"Ms. Marsico provided excellent legal representation to my widowed Mother in need of a Power of Attorney to be established and other necessary legal documents. Ms. Marsico was simply amazing in her process and explaining very clearly to my Mother what each and every step we took meant. She is professional, intelligent, proficient, polite, kind and extremely skilled as an attorney. My Mother and I could not be happier with her expertise and guidance and will recommend her to everyone."
"We are eternally grateful for the representation provided to us by Ms. Marsico, her professionalism and dedication to the law was evident in every aspect of how she handled our recent case. We were impressed with her ability to be 'human' in answering our questions and addressing our concerns, and keep us focused with the immediate issues to resolve our needs. We are very happy with the outcome of our case, Ms. Marsico was appropriately aggressive in her representation of our needs, and all parties ultimately got what they wanted. We highly recommend Ms. Marsico to anyone needing legal advice or legal representation, she is what one would consider an ideal when looking for an attorney."
"We contacted Richelle about doing our will because we knew her from Burke’s Karate dojo, where we saw in action her perfectionism and caring approach as an instructor. We are completely satisfied with her work for us. She was very knowledgeable and able to explain complicated legal issues in an easy to understand way. She was very generous with her time. We never felt rushed when asking questions and making decisions. She also was quick to respond when contacted. Although we didn’t contact Richelle with a contentious issue, we have a feeling she is as fierce a competitor in the courtroom as she is in the dojo.."
Highly recommend! You want Richelle Marsico on your side!
"I had the opportunity to call upon Ms. Marsico for legal representation on several occasions. I knew I was in very good hands with Richelle. Many things impressed me in how she represented my company in a lawsuit - first and foremost is her commitment to me as a client and her determination to deliver the very best possible outcome - I don't think I have ever met a more determined person and I was always glad she was on my side and not against me. A lawsuit is a stressful thing for most people and I really valued how approachable and supportive Richelle is. She was available to me, listened to and addressed my concerns and communicated with me clearly, thoroughly and in a way that made me feel like we were working together. I found her to be exceptionally knowledgeable and prepared and she did an excellent job in working with opposing counsel to achieve the most favorable outcome for us. Additionally, our company is a large multi-family management company and Richelle often handled related legal work for us. But what was truly impressive is Richelle took her own time to develop and conduct training sessions for our employees (and the employees of other companies in the same industry) geared toward avoiding the situations that present the need for legal counsel. This is perfect example of the extent to which she goes the extra mile and one of the many reason I whole-heartedly recommend her."
"Richelle helped me with a child custody dispute, and boy did I make the right decision in retaining her. She is a bulldog. She always had my best interest at heart, and did not back down. The end result was that I I got everything that I had asked for. She did not concede a single thing. If you need a strong, dedicated, and extremely competent attorney then Richelle is your woman. I highly recommend her."
Smart, Conversant, Results-Oriented, Ethical
"Ms. Marsico handled a number of legal issues before we sold our multifamily property in Tampa. Her legal letters to wayward vendors allowed them to save face while their fingers burned. Most came right back to the property to re-do work done wrong or abandoned rather than face her in court. Richelle also generated solid contracts for the ownership team. She grasps issues immediately - very fast mind. We always felt very well counseled and protected with her advice. Management staff engaged her firm for evictions services. Our site manager simply supplied Richelle's assistant with tenant files and waited for the inevitable tenant visit to the office with back rent and late fees, or in some cases, their move out allowing us to avoiding further eviction fees - and to turnover that unit to a paying resident. Her recorded judgments often brought in revenues long after deadbeat tenants departed. Richelle is easy to work with - a tough attorney with soft edges. Her sister told our site manager that Richelle had her karate black belt at age 17! You can still see that self-discipline and confidence in her. If you want a smart attorney who respects your time and budget, Richelle Marsico is the one."
Saved the Day
"Richelle's veteran experience and savvy grasp of family law literally turned my whole case around. She was unrelenting and engaged with our case from the moment we first spoke. We are incredibly happy with Richelle and you will be too. If you have a family law case the best decision you can make is to retain Richelle."
An Expert with Integrity
"Richelle Marsico is brilliant! Combining her brilliance, knowledge, expertise, and compassion, Ms. Marsico IS the attorney one needs for representation in family law. The "over and beyond the call of duty" and careful attention to detail she delivers is quite significant in challenging cases such as mine. Ms. Marsico was referred to me by another family law attorney who was not able to take on my difficult contested divorce and marriage dissolution case. From the 'get go', Ms. Marsico and her talented staff brought great comfort, piece of mind, and assurance to me they would not disappoint, as I felt like a little David going against the very powerful giant Goliath! Ms. Marsico listened to my needs and concerns, combed through law, and ethically accomplished what was needed to prevail. She delivered with integrity and in an aggressive and professional way. She has earned the term of endearment and nickname "The Bull Dog". I highly recommend Richelle Marsico as a family law attorney. Her character, ethics, and integrity coupled with her expertise in the field, is a winning combination."
