Greater Tampa Law is fantastic! I hired them to represent me for two traffic tickets. Throughout my case, I spoke with both lawyers (Brett and Jason). They were both extremely attentive and answered all of my questions. At the traffic hearing, Brett managed to get one of my tickets completely dismissed and the other reduced! This saved me hundreds of dollars. Jason and Brett turned my stressful situation into something positive. I am so grateful that I chose Greater Tampa Law and I recommend them to everyone!

My son and I have worked with Brett on two occasions with regards to establishing legal custody of my grandchild and each time the outcome has been not only good news but great news. We can’t thank Brett, Jason, and their staff of legal professionals enough for being well-organized, knowledgeable, great communicators, and genuinely concerned and caring about their clients. Brett, we appreciate you being there for us, and would not hesitate to recommend Greater Tampa Law to any family with children in need of a parenting plan or child custody issues.
