Central Florida’s Best!

When you start the process of divorce, you always hope for the best and trust that things like communication and co-parenting will be seamless and easy, especially for the sake of the children. Its not until you realize that divorce and co-parenting is one of the most difficult things you can encounter as a parent, and that even in the most ideal situations, you WILL need a legal advocate – not simply an attorney.

Robert has not only been my legal representative, but he and Trish have been the reassuring voice and guidance that I needed when I faced some of my worst days as a divorced father. Robert is tenacious, aggressive, and strategic, but he is also patient and will “strike while the iron is hot”. As he promised over eight years ago during our first consultation, I now have primary custody of both of my children. I could not have done it without Mr. Peddy and his legal team. His reputation is strong, his knowledge is vast, and his experience is worth every penny. I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for his contributions to my family’s future.

Robert fixed mess from former attorney who sold me out due to his lack of competence and ethics.

I came to Robert because my attorney tricked me and I needed to fire him, so I was very apprehensive about trusting any attorney. Robert was recommended to me by someone who is involved in the court system. He and Trish took care of my girls and they never gave up-even though the other side tried every nasty, underhanded trick in the book; Robert and Trish stood with me until the end, yielding a positive outcome! He has a great reputation with the judges, which I think is a tremendous help….he is truly legit and one of the few attorneys I can say I honestly trust!!!

A Fathers plight

After doing some research I decided to approach the offices of Robert Peddys law firm with what I thought was going to be a tough case for myself being a father in a bitter child custody and divorce battle. Mr Peddy explained my avenues and delivered on what he said he was going to do. Trish in the office was exceptional, and Brooke and Casey couldn’t of been more helpful or professional. After what seemed a very quick outcome, I ended up getting 50% custody of my little girl and came out of the divorce unusually well to say the least. I would and will recommend to any fathers out ther going through a similar situation. I really couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Stacked Deck

My Ex filed for increased child support with the Department of Revenue in Florida. Mr. Peddy was able to defend me in a situation where I thought all the cards were stacked against me. After our scheduled mediation, Peddy won me more time with both of my beautiful children and I cannot be more thankful for this.

Against all odds

My case was a very difficult one with everything stacked against me. After several attorneys could do nothing to help I decided to hire Robert Peddy Jr. This proved to be a good decision. After battling for 2 years in court and correcting the errors of my previous attorneys the end result was better than I could have ever expected.

Robert and staff find ways to win and do not back down in the face of adversity. Everyone worked on my case above and beyond any reasonable expectation including many late days and Sundays.

To say they are committed to winning is an understatement. Robert is a winner and settles for nothing less.

Thank you for all you have done for me and my children.

Honest, Agressive, Realistic, Reputable within Legal Community

I used Mr. Peddy over 5 years ago. Since then I have referred many family members to him and friends. Robert and his paralegal Trish Alderman are amazing. What impressed me most was their attention to detail and his realistic impression of my case. While Robert does NOT sugar coat anything, he is a realist. I went through a very difficult custody case, his staff walked me through process and were crucial in helping my family and I during this very emotional time. I respect Robert for his honesty, integrity and realism. Everything Robert advised me at our initial consultation took place. We not only won our case but now have a permanent order in place to protect my daughter. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Peddy to anyone. He is respected by Judges and the legal community for his compassion and integrity.

Custody/Child Support

Mr. Peddy has been a GREAT attorney for us. He is honest and fair and will tell you exactly where your case stands. He was also upfront with us from the very beginning. He has fought for us and provided us with excellent legal counsel. My husband and I would absolutely recommend Mr. Peddy and his amazing team to anyone!!!!

The Man For The Job

I have met with Mr. Peddy on 2 occasions and I highly recommend him. I have already referred others to him that have told me they were just as impressed with him as I was. The other party decided not to move forward, after they found out I was planning on retaining him as my counsel. If ever the need comes that I need an attorney, this man would be the first one I would call.

Hired a Lawyer and got a Friend

I have used the Peddy Law office since 2007. On every occasion my case was handled with care and strict attention to detail. Mr Peddy treated my family and myself as though our case was personal to him. He and his assistants were always available to “bring me down from the ledge” when things got chaotic. We could never thank Peddy Law enough for what they have done for our family.

Excellent Attorney

I couldn’t have chosen a better attorney than Robert Peddy to handle my case. I worked with him on this case for almost 3 years and he did the best work possible. My daughters biological father wanted no part of her and served me with documents to reduce his child support. Mr. Peddy put so much effort and on the long run ended up winning the case. The biological father gave up his rights and my wonderful boyfriend adopted my daughter. Me Peddy always kept in communication and notified me of every single thing going on with the case. If you need a family law attorney or looking for an attorney in the field he works in he’s the one to go to. Robert Peddy is the best attorney!!!!

Winning Custody

My husband and I contacted Mr Robert Peddy after struggling with another attorney in a custody case for my step daughter. After speaking with Mr Peddy, I was confident that he was the best person for the job. He displayed confidence, sincerity, and was very knowledgeable. Outside of the courtroom he was sincere and was always there to answer any questions we had. In the courtroom he was well prepared, confident, and composed. Robert met with us on several occasions prior to trial to ensure that all of us were well prepared and ready to proceed. He did a fantastic job in preparing us, his staff , and himself with all details regarding our case. Everyone knows how hard it is for a father to obtain custody and the mother only have visitation. Despite all difficulties surrounding our case, we walked out winners. My husband is the primary parent for his daughter and she is now living with us.

A Genuine Yet Defiant Attorney

My husband and I went to Mr. Robert Peddy for a relocation case regarding my son, and could not have been happier! We consulted with multiple attorneys prior to Robert, but the confidence and sincerity he displayed in our initial meeting made our choice easy, and he ended up being everything you could want in an attorney. Outside of the courtroom he was genuine and trustworthy while inside the courtroom he was composed and prepared. Any court battle will be stressful, but having Robert sitting next to you in the courtroom will bring a sense of calm. He will fight for you until the end and really put in the effort to build your case. Unlike many attorneys Robert will meet with you extensively prior to trial to make sure you are prepared and to ensure a solid gameplan. His paralegal, Trish, was also terrific and both had great communication with us throughout the trial. The respect Robert commands within the court system along with his experience with family law was definitely apparent in all of our hearings. We won of course. Not only was my son granted relocation, but I now have full custody.

Outstanding Representation!!

Late last year, my 19 year old daughter had the unfortunate experience of discovering that her new husband was not the man she thought she had married. Six months pregnant and devastated, she made the decision to divorce him. Following some bad advice, we hired a local attorney to handle her case. After paying the retainer, we soon discovered that this attorney and her staff had no concept of customer service, and no concern for my daughter or her newborn baby’s well-being. They were rude, lazy, and incompetent. Simple communication was nearly impossible and the case was dragging along at a snail’s pace. We received some advice from a friend to consider changing attorneys, and she highly recommended Robert Peddy. After one phone call with Robert and Trish, we were convinced that it was the right thing to do. From day one, the communication was open and extremely informative. They worked tirelessly to move the case forward. The prior attorney would not discuss the case with me because “I wasn’t the client”, even though my daughter wanted my direct assistance. The experience with the Peddy team was the complete opposite. After Robert received my daughter’s permission, I was allowed to communicate directly with Robert and Trish about the case, which was very beneficial. Robert struck the perfect balance between aggressiveness and persuasiveness with the opposing attorney, and the case moved forward expeditiously. The result was a settlement agreement that protects our granddaughter’s safety and well-being, as well as my daughter’s peace of mind. Additionally, Robert and his team conducted themselves with high integrity. He cared enough about our family to seek and successfully achieve positive results without severely impacting us financially. We have all heard horror stories about unscrupulous attorneys choosing the most expensive path to enrich themselves with no regard for their clients. Robert chose to aggressively work toward settling the case without a trial, and his strategy was immensely successful. Our family could not be more satisfied with the outcome, and we are eternally grateful for the legal team at The Law Office of Robert Peddy. I would recommend them to all my friends and loved ones based on this experience.

If you are looking for a caring , yet assertive lawyer. Than Robert Peddy Jr. Is the one for you!

Child support modification/motions for contempt

A friend referred me to Attorney Peddy 13 months ago. I had tried to pursue modification of child support on my own and was overwhelmed with the actions of my former husband and his attorney and felt the need to be represented. I was completely impressed from my very first visit. Attorney Peddy explained everything to me in detail and assured me if I put my trust in him we would prevail. We ended in a trial and Attorney Peddy was not just organized but calm, collected and professional. Never having been in a courtroom for a trial I was nervous. Attorney Peddy made me feel safe, confident and represented. We, of course, prevailed. I would recommend him without reservation!

I got my kids THANKS to this wonderful and brilliant, and patient attorney!

More than 3 years ago, and impatient client walked in with no hope left, a troubling case, and a controlling ex wife. Mr. Peddy, greeted me, brought me and told me on day one after reviewing my case, “If you are patient with me and let me do my thing, I will get your kids for you. When this is over, you will have custody of your kids.” I’m thinking, yeah right, you don’t know my ex. Robert was very patient with me. He scolded me for doing stupid things and helped guide me to making better decisions. A year ago when my ex dropped off the kids to me and said they weren’t welcome back, Robert said, “She just made this easier for me and now you will get your kids back sooner.” Robert was very calculating in his plan and always kept me informed.

Today, almost 3 1/2 years later, Robert Peddy Jr. kept his word. I have custody of my kids and my ex has nothing to control except herself. I know my kids don’t know all what happened, but one day I plan on telling them to tell Robert Thank you. Robert staff was kind, and responsive and thorough.

I reccommend Robert Peddy Jr. to any person that wants justice and the peace of knowing they have someone of the caliber of Robert Peddy Jr. on their side. He is the man!

You don’t have to take a bath………

To Whom It May Concern,

If you are in need of a Family Law Attorney, you can stop your search with Mr. Peddy. A couple of years ago I went through a tough situation with my now ex-wife. (In Lake County, FL) Mr. Peddy’s expertise and knowledge of family law, made a situation where most men would take a bath, I came out smelling like a bed of roses. His technique, strategy, and professionalism are second to none. I never met Mr. Peddy prior to this situation. Luckily a friend refereed me to him. And I say luckily, because God only knows where I would be if he didn’t.

In closing, my ex-wifes team wasn’t that happy!

Hiring Mr. Peddy was the best decision I made in the past few years. I can’t thank him enough.

Excellent Lawyer = Excellent Results

I was presented with a horrible situation last year that would cause me to only see my child in the summers and some holidays. This would have caused the relationship I have with my child to diminish ! I immediately contacted Mr Peddy from a friends recommendation and I am so happy that I made this decision. From day one Mr Peddy and his associates were extremely helpful and knowledgeable of my case. He has had multiple victory’s with cases like mine and I never doubted him or his work. He is extremely focused and is a pit bull, as he takes no crap!
I now get my child more than I did in the past and she can never be relocated away from me again. I never could have done it without Mr. Peddy and his staff. His assistant Trish is brilliant and amazing woman as well, the two of them together are unstoppable!
I personally want to thank Mr. Peddy for preserving the relationship I have with my child. I now can give to her what I didn’t have growing up…a great dad!

Thank you Robert Peddy for everything you do!
