I have a very hard time believing anyone had a very good experience with this attorney. He never reported to me, made deals without consulting with me, failed to even know what the laws were in a simple divorce. He allowed legal orders to be served that did not even comply with FL statute. Overlooked very basic things and glossed over things i pointed out. Took my money with a smile and provided a very substandard service.

After living with an abusive husband for years I decided to get some help. I asked a lady at my church for help and she referred me to Mr. Rathel. I called him and he gave me a consultation over the phone and set up a time to come meet him and his staff. They were wonderful especially my paralegal Amanda. Mr. Rathel new how to deal with an abusive man and was able to get him out of the house and got an injunction against him. My husband was not allowed to come within 500 feet of the house our my work. I would highly recommend Mr. Rathel. This was the best experience I have ever had with a lawyer.

I got arrested and this was the third lawyer I called. He answered his cell phone at 8pm on a Saturday night. I was able to have a phone meeting with him explaining what I had got arrested for (DUI) and that it was my first time ever getting arrested. He explained everything to me and gave me his fee over the phone. The fee was reasonable so I went in for a free consultation. I hired him and he did a great job. The staff was also very helpful but not as nice as the lawyer. This is the guy to go to if you did something stupid. It also helped that they took payment plans. The only problem is that they would not allow my girlfriend to call and get information on my case. This pissed my girlfriend off! The told me that they did not want to accidentally give out any personal or confidential information. Mr. Rathel was able to handle the situation with my girlfriend by allowing the both of us to call him on his cell phone together after hours. Thanks Mike

I'm finally Divorced!!!! Mr. Rathel just finished my divorce trial and I was very happy with the outcome. My trial was in front of a Judge and I was able to get the custody I wanted for my children. Everyone at the courthouse spoke very highly of Mr. Rathel during the trial including the court deputies. I was referred to Mr. Rathel through a court reporter who seen him in trial before.

THis firm is ONLY interested in getting money up front.
I was lied to and deceived by Mr. Rathal.
It was a horrible expierence and would not recommend this law firm to anyone.

This was the worst law firm I have ever heard of. The legal staff is horrible at their job. They rarely double check their legal documents and send them out with out confirming with their clients. I hired Mr Rathel and in the middle of my case without my knowledge he had Ms. Blanchette take over. phone calls and emails are rarely returned. Mr Rathel was so believable that he wanted to help me with my case but I made the mistake of paying $3000 up front. NEVER PREPAY FOR LEGAL SERVICES. I learned the hard way

When Michael Rathal was retained for a criminal case, fees were quoted to which I agreed. After discovery was obtained and it contained untrue contents and I requested this case go to trial, then the fees jumped a whopping $5000.00.Michael Rathal stated that if the trial was lost then there would be jail time. I guess Attorney Rathal has crystal balls! When a plea deal was reached and I requested that the $5000.00 that was paid in advance for the trial Attorney Rathal refuses to refund money! This happened eighteen months ago! I agree Attorney Rathal appears to be a nice guy but be warned he is all about getting your money and as much if not all in advance!!!

I had my divorce trial today and my lawyer was awesome. Mr. Rathel did a wonderful job and was well prepaired. I appreciate all that he did for me over the past several months. This firm was amazing and very cost effective. Everyone said I would not get the schedule I wanted with my kids but Mr. Rathel was able to everything I wanted. Keep up the good work.

I see alot of good reviews for this law firm..Mr Rathel may be a great attorney..Unfortunately the same cannot be said about Ms. Blanchette..She stood idly by while the attorney on the other side tore her to bits..Its unbelievable that she just stood there and did absolutely nothing...I respect her for going through all the school required to do what she does but I just dont think this was what she should've chosen as a career...I think that she just doesnt realize that she can alter/ destroy lives by her actions..After the trial which she lost without contest, I still havent been able to contact her when she promised at the courthouse that she would talk to us about it the following monday..Well that was in July..Still I have been directed to a paralegal that wont even talk to me...How can you give someone $2500 and they treat you like this...Thanks Rathel Law Group...What you have done for us was well worth it...We cant even reach you now...Get the money and run..What you did was well appreciated...Unbelievable

I needed a lawyer fast and I was able to get in and get help! These people knew what they were doing. They had me divorced in 21 days with no aggravation or problems from the now ex. The price was fair but it still cost me $2500.

Thank you for handling the criminal case for my son. I appreciated everyone at your office and the great job you did in and out of the courtroom. When I came to you my son was going to prison and you helped him get out and get the help he needed. He is now employed and taking care of his family. Drugs are a horrible thing and I'm glad you were able to get him help (treatment) instead of just going away to prison. Everyone needs a second chance and Mr. Rathel made it happen.

I wanted to say thanks to Mike Rathel and the staff for doing a great job on my case. They were very professional and did everything they said they would do. I know that it is difficult dealing with Family Law cases, however, they did a wonderful job. I would recommend this firm to anyone.

They handled a criminal case for me and I am very displeased. The time before the trial I dealt with one attorney, when it was time for the court case to be heard they stuck me with a newly hired attorney who did nothing but stand with me in front of the judge. I was told that they would try to talk to the state attorney to get my sentence lightened but she did not even walk over and say hello to the state attorney representative. Nearly two years later, they are still handling my expungement. The paperwork disappeared in transit once, and I had to wait nine months before they realized it and resubmitted the paperwork. I am now still waiting for them to send the next round of paperwork. Not to mention, I have not ONCE received a return phone call, I always have to do my own follow up with them. Do not use them. They may be cheap compared to other attorney's, but you get what you pay for.

The attorney "Michael Rathel" in my boyfriends case was great. He took the case all the way to trial and the Jury came back with an absolutely not guilty. We were always able to get a hold of the attorney due to the fact that he gave us his personal cell number. This came in handy due to my hectic work schedule. Great attorney! Would highly recommend. The staff was also great and they do a little bit of everything.

PROS: Great Trial Skills....Good Access
CONS: They charge a late fee if you don't make your payment on time
