No divorce is easy.

Your confidence in us matters.

No two divorce
cases are alike.

Therefore, it is essential to speak with a lawyer who will listen to your story and devise a solution based on your unique needs.

As a full-service law firm,
The Gufford Law Firm, P.A., offers comprehensive support to divorce clients in Florida’s Treasure Coast region.

Before you file for divorce, meeting with an attorney is a vital step.

Though it is possible to file without help from an attorney, many people who choose this route make critical mistakes, causing problems that are costly and irresolvable without a lawyer’s help. Our lawyers can help you avoid mistakes by thoroughly examining all of the relevant facts of your case. This approach helps us find a solution that will serve your needs and keep costs controlled. Visit our Family Law FAQ section for detailed information about all aspects of the divorce process.

The legal team at Gufford Law Firm

At The Gufford Law Firm, P.A.,
there are always “two sets of eyes” looking at everything that goes on in any particular case.

Strength In Teamwork

At The Gufford Law Firm, P.A., we value teamwork — not just from our attorneys, but from our staff as well. When we take cases to trial, we bring staff members for support so that our attorneys can focus on the presentation of the case to the judge. We believe that our commitment to teamwork facilitates our ability to provide a polished, effective courtroom presentation. However, we emphasize that the most important member of our team is our client. In each and every case, you will not only have an attorney who is representing your interests, but also a seasoned paralegal to assist you throughout your case.

Nobody is perfect, but having those two sets of eyes looking at everything prevents mistakes from occurring. Also, because we have a “team approach” in the way we handle cases, if someone has a good idea, regardless of whether they are an attorney or a paralegal, that idea is considered, debated and then acted upon once we have cleared it with the client. Understanding the legal process and the potential outcomes of your case is essential. To that end, we ensure that we are accessible to our clients by providing clear answers to their legal questions. Some of our attorneys provide 24/7 cellphone access to their clients so that the client can call the attorney at any time, regardless of the day or hour of the night.

Family Law

An inexperienced lawyer may make crucial mistakes that lead to delays, disputes and increased costs in the long run. At The Gufford Law Firm, P.A., our Attorney and staff have 50 years of combined legal experience and a breadth of knowledge of Florida family law. We will serve you with compassion while taking proactive, aggressive steps to achieve your family law goals.
