Worst attorney ever. No one ever answers the phones or returns calls. He took our retainer of $1400 to get a beneficiary order from a judge and it took him 3 years to do it. It was only after we filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau and the Florida Bar that he finally got the paper signed by the judge.

I thought Mr. Peacock was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and ethical. He is a go-getter and he is confident. He kept me up to date and he made sure I was informed and he made certain that I understood everything. He explained things to me that he knew I needed to know and he was patient in answering questions that he knew we probably didn't need to be so concerned about. So, he always treated me with respect and he truly cared about my case. His assistant Kelly Fogarty... it's hard to find the right words for someone who as amazing as she. I thank God often for Miss Fogarty and for all she did for me. Good, people with great experience, treating you with dignity and respect who will stand up for you with vigor, are what you will find at this office. I personally recommend that no individual enter into any legal agreement nor legal battle without speaking to Mr. Peacock first.

Unhelpful. They will take your money then not give you the time of day afterwards. The secretary, Theresa, is quick to just get you off the phone if they already have your money. $30K down the tubes.

I found Mr. Peacock and his assistant Mrs. Fogarty to be extremely helpful and proficient when I was going through a lengthy divorce process. Their patience, professionalism, and knowledge were of the highest caliber, and I would recommend them to anyone seeking legal council!

I find it impossible to get to talk with the lawyer himself. I have been a client 2 years and have seen him once, by accident. His assistant Jackie, seems to be in charge and you can't tell if she is even listening to you as she is texting while you are talking. She doesn't follow up with phone calls

I have no knowledge of a client named "Tashiina H". This was obviously a mistaken post by someone that I have no records of ever representing them.

I have no records of ever talking to a man named Patrick Bass. He probably has listed my name by mistake.

Ramey Law Office
Russ Ramey was my first and only experience dealing with an attorney for any legal matter. My matter was specifically child custody and divorce. I have to say that I’m not at all impressed with his performance and that of his staff. My initial impression of him was good and I felt confident that he would get the job done. Well, he got the job done but I it’s probably because my ex-wife didn’t fight me at all on the case. This is a friendly warning to all of you that are looking for an attorney, particularly child custody and divorce. DO NOT hire Russell Ramey if you want your case handled in a timely manner and feel like you should be treated with respect after dishing out thousands of dollars for a service. His office staff is horrible at returning phone calls or being prompt about anything. They seem to move at super turtle speed. You can forget about talking to Ramey again after you have your initial meeting with him, unless you can hunt him down and corner him. It has taken my case nearly 9 months to get resolved with no legal opposition. I don’t have any experience with the justice system but that seems like an unusually long time for a simple divorce/child custody case. If I could do it all over I would have shopped around and hired someone else. Now I will give him this. He gave me a pretty decent retainer fee (under $5k) but I guess you get what you pay for.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
