Jose Estigarribia

Jose Estigarribia is top notch and was a phenomenal advocate for me and my children during a difficult and painful divorce. I don’t know what I would have done without him on our side, he kept me calm with his tranquil presence even when things got tough and heated.  He worked endlessly to protect mine and my children’s best interests, and to get us everything we needed and wanted in the divorce. His commitment to his clients is unmatched, he always made time for me when I needed it. He worked quickly and efficiently on my case, when the other side tried to stall he was able to keep everything moving for a timely ending. He was very kind, helpful, knowledgeable, honest, and straightforward all while still being a shark. Jose Estigarribia is a genuinely kind and honest person he was a pleasure to have as a lawyer, I am extremely happy with the outcome of my divorce. Jose made it possible for me to get everything we needed to move on. Thank you Jose and Mackey Law!

Pete Mackey

My case was a bit different than most and required some different approaches.  I spoke with a couple other attorneys, before going to Mackey Law, but they were very negative on the case.   Peter actually handled most of my case and the final outcome was a win.  Mackey Law will handle all my attorney needs in the future.

Pete Mackey

Being brought into a lawsuit shortly after the passing of my husband about a leaking roof on the home I had to sell was heartbreaking to say the least.  Peter Mackey and his team were professional, unrelenting in pursuit of the truth, and consistent in making things right.  After three years and a lot of tears, Peter prevailed in a winning verdict and reimbursement of the money that I had to shell out to defend myself against this frivolous lawsuit.  Thank you to Peter and the entire Mackey Law Group team for a job well done!

Pete Mackey and T.R. Smith

“I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Peter Mackey and TR Smith fought hard for me over 3 1/2 years. They went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thanks guys!!!”

Jorge Martinez

Jorge Martinez helped my dad on his divorce and he was very helpful and patient throughout this drawn out and painful process. He listened to our concerns and made sure to address all of them. We could not have asked for a more supportive attorney! Mr. Mackey was also very friendly and provided great insight with his wisdom throughout the process. We have great confidence in this awesome team!

Jose Estigarribia

These people are true professionals! Mr. Peter Mackey and his wife are very strong and competent with a great sense of humor on top of it! They had me work with one of their top lawyers, Mr. Jose Estigarribia and I had all the way around positive experience with him. He is tough, extremely knowledgable, and he was very conscientious of the time he was spending on my case. He managed his time extremely efficiently with a total focus on task at hand. My case went very smoothly despite many obstacles and potential points of a breakdown. I got an excellent result and with their help I achieved more than what I had hoped for. These professionals will take an excellent care of you and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of competent lawyers!

Review for Attorney, T.R. Smith

Thank you for putting me in touch with T.R. from your firm. He was very prompt in reaching out to us, and we had a conference call with him earlier this week. He was very helpful in suggesting what our options are moving forward to purchasing my mother in-law’s trailer. We both felt very comfortable with T.R. We will be communicating with my mother in-law our options, and will follow-up with T.R. In the next week or two.

Thank you once again for your professional courtesies and your prompt attention to my inquiry.

Carls Family “Home Closing”

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to be able to work with TR at not only the sale of my first home but also the new home we had purchased. TR and staff were very professional, courteous, and answered any questions we had to offer. The over all experience was exceptional and would recommend them to anyone who needs an attorney.
Blessed to have used them…

TR Smith and his team at Mackey Law Group were fantastic to work with!

TR and his team at MLG were fantastic to work with as our title company for closing on my family’s new property in Bradenton, FL. We are relocating from California and TR made the closing process very easy on us. A cross-country move is stressful. Luckily with the MLG, they were there to answer any questions and always acted proactively with all parties involved in the closing to make sure there were no issues with closing on time. TR and his team are very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend TR Smith and the Mackey Law Group.

Best in the Business

T.R. handled everything that a closing entails. I cannot say enough about the professionalism, honesty, communication and dedication to my house closing that T.R. and his staff displayed. They worked tirelessly and handled every issue that arose, even when it wasn’t their responsibility to do so. T.R. is the best in the business and I am so thankful I chose him and his team to help with the sale of my house.

Home sale in Bradenton

T.R. Smith handled the sale of our single family home in Bradenton. He was incredibly helpful and answered all of our questions that came up as we sold our house by-owner. He was excellent with communication by phone and email and never left a question unanswered; he made sure we understood everything before we entered our contract. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a knowledgeable attorney!

Thomas R. Smith V

All I can say is after dealing with the death of my Brother, Thomas not only handled everything with ease, and professionalism, he had compassion and understanding. He always had patience with me and responded quickly to all my request. I had no worries because I knew everything was being handled . Thomas helped in so many ways. My case had some unexpected issues. Some of the issues required Thomas to dig a little deeper. He did it with ease. He helped me fine a Real Estate broker who ended up being a wonderful person who sold my Brothers house in 24 hours from the time it was put on the market. Thomas handled all the closing and all the legalities that went with it. Again with ease. I cant’s rave enough about Mackey Law group, and Thomas R Smith V. I remember the first time I went to Mackey Law, I was down in Florida dealing with my Brothers death, and arrangements. I got lost looking for them. I arrived 1 hour late for my appointment, and they were all ready to go to lunch. They saw my frustration when I finally arrived. They were gracious, and told me to sit down, relax and they would talk with me. That meant so much to me. For a bad situation, Thomas was calm, considerate, and really understood what I was going through. Even now a year later. something came up that had to be resolved, and Thomas again came through for me. I would recommend him for sure. I’m from Ohio, and I told him in my last e-mail to him that I wished he was up by me. I can go on and on, but I think by now you should get the point. Thomas unlike some attorneys was upfront, professional, compassionate, and understanding. He handled everything for me. I could have never done this on my own. I’m glad I’ve had this opportunity to express my feelings towards this man who deserves a 5 star rating.

A Great law firm

We are a local family owned HVAC service company who has been with T.R Smith and the Mackey law group for a couple of years. We went through a handful of attorney’s before finding these guys. T.R has handled most of our cases, all with a favorable outcome for us. Unlike most lawyer’s, I can get him on the phone and a question or concern addressed in a couple of minutes. I would not hesitate to recommend T.R Smith or the Mackey law group to friends or family.

Direct, experienced, compassionate

Pete is a highly experienced attorney who has a full understanding of the law and compassionately relates to his clients during one of the toughest times of your life – a divorce.

I was educated and prepared throughout the journey as a result of his direct counsel and that of his staff. A family owned business with his wife, Catherine (also an attorney), in many ways I felt a part of the family.

I was in a situation where, as the bread winner, I had the most to lose once my unemployed husband of 20 years filed for divorce and did everything he could to make the experience as miserable as possible. I ended with a more favorable result than is typical considering the very unfortunate Florida laws and dealing with unreasonable opposing counsel.

Pete’s experience as a very seasoned attorney and litigator was critical to the result of my case. I would recommend him as a highly competent divorce lawyer who has seen just about any twist or turn you would experience.

Thomas R. Smith, ESQ

Working for the past two years with T.R. on my case had its ups and downs, but T.R held fast and always assured me the confidence I needed to eventually win the case. He always picked up the phone when I called or returned my call if he was busy. There were times when my opinion of the court system was tested. That is when T.R. became my therapist. Thomas showed that in today’s world a lawyer can be compassionate, as well as, resourceful. Thank You Thomas.
