Through the last several years, I have worked with Derek Byrne on several different family law cases as opposing counsel. You cannot find a more hard-working, stronger, ethical and knowledgeable advocate. I strongly endorse this lawyer.

Derek is a pleasure to work with. He is honest and gives you as much information that you need and want during the process. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney! He always has your needs at the center of his work. He is accommodating and will do anything possible to help you. He handles all matters with class and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need.

Derek is reasonable, honest and fair. He’s aggressive when he needs to be and truly goes after what is right for the children involved and what is fair overall. He seems to know the Pinellas county court system like the back of his hand which was extremely beneficial. I could not have navigated the crazy world of family law without his help and expertise. Also, he has a great paralegal under him so you’re truly in great hands no matter who answers the phone. Thank you, Derek

I am a previous client of Derek’s so I’m copy and pasting my comment on his old firm that was directly intended for him: I came to this firm in a desperate situation where state law was completely against myself and what was in my child’s best interest, and time was urgent. After being toyed with by law firms throughout the day, talked down to, hung up on and scheduled consultations set a week or two from that date, I contacted here and associate Derek Byrne. Amazing treatment, attention, and respect. Mr. Byrne had me come in immediately, drafted necessary paperwork right there in his office, and had it not been after 5:00 when we wrapped things up he would have had them filed that day as well. Things did not proceed as we anticipated, and I needed his assistance and counsel much more expediently than expected. Derek Byrne responded to the new events as if he saw them coming, and handled them with absolute diligence and persistence. I have never been able to not get in touch with him, he makes me feel as if I am his only client even though it is apparent by his desk, office and schedule he has a full plate. Does not matter. Amazing attorney and an amazing firm. My one and only regret throughout this whole process was this firm wasn’t my first phone call. I wasted an entire day with a list of other attorneys that weren’t worth a Google search.

The Best Family Law Attorney
Without hesitation, I would undoubtedly say that Derek Byrne is the best family law attorney in the area. We have dealt with quite a few that have not only been overworked, but complacent in their cases- there’s no drive to move your case along; a lack of attention to detail, and ridiculous amount of hours billed. Derek isn’t any of that. Derek is an intelligent and highly competent attorney. He understands the law, how it is applied, and how the Judges think. He won’t tell you what you want to hear- he will tell you what you need to hear so together you both can collaborate to create the best possible outcome for your case. He’s responsive (literally calls back within a few hours), makes time for your case, and moves it along so you can get resolution and the best possible outcome. I have referred him multiple times, and he will continue to be our attorney for any issues that arise. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Derek for all the work you’ve done on our case, and for our family.


Thankful for Derek!
During the heartbreak of a divorce Derek handled my daughter’s divorce with first and foremost care and genuine concern. Derek was always quick to respond to an email or phone call. He would answer any question we had regarding the next step and kept us informed. He made the process flow and allowed my daughter to concentrate on her own well being rather than the legal process. I and my daughter are grateful for his services and how he handled the process in a professional & timely manner. Sincerely grateful!


Highly Recommend
I had a wonderful experience with Derek as my attorney and I cannot recommend him enough! He and his team were always prompt and positive, without sugarcoating things. I was going through a tough divorce and Derek and Tanji were there with me every step of the way. I was able to trust them which was huge. Derek is very knowledgeable and experienced; he gave me great advice and always had my best interests in mind. Derek and his team were thorough and took their time to quell my fears and answer any and all questions I had. I cannot recommend Derek enough!
