DISCLAIMER: Prospective clients may not obtain the same or similar result.
From the start, Kelly was professional and confident. She took the time to learn the facts and hear what we had to say. She was very fair with how she charged for her time, but did thorough research and, despite our unusual case, came to litigation ready with strong case law. We got the result we wanted and needed for the safety of our kids. We would absolutely hire her again.

Kelly helped me through a very difficult and long divorce. She fought for me and is still fighting for me over a year after my divorce was finalized. I can’t imagine having anyone else by my side except Kelly. Thank you Kelly!

A fabulous, intelligent, hardcore lawyer. Truly the best.
Kelly represented me in an emotional, grueling custody battle. She was very professional and knowledgeable and she worked hard on my case. The service that she provided for my family was priceless. She met with me several times between court dates to discuss my concerns and she addressed them all. Her staff is wonderful also. I didn’t get everything I wanted in court but we were able to figure out a plan that was safe for my children, and that they will be supervised at all times. We are still working on finalizing everything and I will be keeping Kelly on back up in case we ever have to go back to court. She has a great sense of humor too!

Kelly is a fantastic lawyer! She is hard working and responds in a timely manner. I had a great experience with her on my side! Highly recommend her services!

Kelly is an outstanding attorney who knows her craft well. She helped me navigate through some very tough legal issues involving my family. My only regret is not finding her sooner. She’s smart, ethical, trustworthy and truly dedicated to helping her clients. Her staff is just as caring and professional as she is. If she’s on your side you’re in great hands.

Great Divorce Attorney
I recently hired Kelly to handle my divorce case. Kelly is honest, ethical and very knowledgeable in legal matters. She is also excellent communicator. All advice was given in a straight matter of fact but at the same time very kindly. I always felt that she cared about me and did what had to be done to protect my interests. Kelly and her staff were always polite, professional, quickly handled all necessary tasks and were very supportive. I always felt like my case was the only one they were working on because of the priority my issues received. I feel so much gratitude for all her efforts.

Kelly is the one you want by your side!!
I absolutely love Kelly. I had a previous lawyer for my divorce case that made a mess of my divorce and I hired Kelly so I could move out of state with my kids. She is very responsive and gets back to you at a timely matter. She tells you her honest opinion and doesn’t feed you a bunch of crap. She gives a monthly statement to know how your money is being spent. I wish I wold of had her for my first lawyer because thing would of been a lot better for me but I am glad to have her now. She has a great sense of humor and easy to get along with. During my trial I felt at ease with having her by my side. I highly recommend her to anybody!!!

Highly Recommended – Honest, Dependable, Excellent Experience(s) (and yes, I still retain her services!)
Kelly McNeal is a true professional who provides excellent representation. In addition to numerous legal questions/consults, I have been Ms. McNeal’s client for both a divorce and child relocation case and have been very impressed with the way my cases have been handled. From the initial consultation, Ms. McNeal impressed me with her knowledge by formulating and talking over a plan for what to expect throughout the process(es). I am in the military and in addition to knowing the ins and outs of Florida Law, Ms. McNeal was able to provide up to date information for the way military benefits and relocation issues factored into both cases. She is honest, up front and direct with her communication – meaning she is always willing to listen to requests, but also isn’t afraid to tell you if you’re asking for something unconventional or unreasonable. More importantly, she always fully answers questions and provides solid rationales with her recommendations and answers.
Ms. McNeal is always well prepared and put us at ease during very stressful litigations. She strives to help find a solution that both parties can agree to, but she will shine and represent your case very well if your case needs to go to trial! I felt very confident when we had to go to trial and it was evident that we always had the best counselor in the room.
I have used other attorneys in the past, but my previous experiences have left me wondering what I was paying for. McNeal legal has an excellent team and Ms. McNeal isn’t out to “run up the bill” like I unfortunately experienced with two previous attorneys. Finding a well respected, capable attorney who is awesome counseling you in legal matters, dealing with other attorneys – across different states, representing you in court, drafting documents and who knows her case law is hard to find. Finding the same attorney who is also ethical, honest, excellent in communication and genuinely wants to provide you with the best legal representation is even harder to find. Ms. McNeal is the first – and only – attorney that I am proud to call “my lawyer” and I hope that she never leaves Florida because I intend to continue to seek her professional advice for any future legal needs. McNeal Legal will provide you with an excellent Legal Home and I will continue to highly recommend Kelly McNeal to all my professional colleagues (both military and civilian), family and friends. Thank-you, Kelly!

Ms. McNeal handled our relatively simple case with a level of professionalism commensurate with far more challenging cases. She kept us informed, advised us and respected our position. She provided draft copies of all correspondence for our review, incorporated suggested changes and answered all questions to our satisfaction.

A genuine pleasure and honor for me to recommend Kelly McNeal
To whom it may concern:
It is a genuine pleasure and honor for me to recommend Kelly McNeal as an outstanding lawyer. Kelly represented me in a litigation case against a homeowners association. I interacted frequently with her and depended on her. Kelly was always punctual, yet easygoing. She is keenly devoted to her work, but being a real people person, she was also enjoyable to work with.
Kelly demonstrated from early in taking on my case that she understood what the Florida legal system is all about. She is well organized. Almost without exception, she put the customer first, feeling as I do that the key to good business is satisfied customers, and I am a satisfied customer. I suppose doing well as a lawyer is easy if you are, as she is, driven in equal measure by both quality and efficiency.
In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending Kelly McNeal for any Complex litigation. I feel confident that you will be as pleased with her as I am.

Excellent, professional, and HIGHLY recommended
Kelly is FANTASTIC! We had previous representation and had to hire Kelly for a separate matter. Once our previous attorney made us nervous we switched both cases over to Kelly. She is extremely knowledgeable and is aggressive for her clients. She is quick to respond and very pleasant to deal with. She also has a good sense of humor and makes you feel comfortable. We were very involved with our case which Kelly encouraged us to do as it saved us some money. We are still litigating, however we consider Kelly to be OUR attorney both for personal use as well as our business. She is HIGHLY recommended.

Professional, Honest and Extremely Knowledgeable
I went to Kelly with absolutely no knowledge of what could legally be done to help my situation. She was patient with me, honest and extremely professional the entire time. What should have been a simple thing ended up turning into a long ordeal due to defendant’s the evasion of service and continued attempts to dismiss charges. Kelly always kept me informed and was prompt, prepared and knowledgeable about everything that pertained to my case. I highly recommend her if you want to be represented by one of the few lawyers that give the profession a good name.
Family client, March 11, 2013
In 2009 I needed an attorney to file for a civil lawsuit to retrieve my personal property that someone had claimed as their own. My real estate attorney recommended Kelly McNeal. “And I was not disappointed”. Ms. McNeal has an amazing ability to grasp the details, she took the time to explain what my options were, what each filing meant, what the fees would be up to a certain point and what it would be if it went to court.. She talked in length with me and my family when we had questions and listened to us as we explained what took place. I had access to her at any time through her office, e-mails and phone calls. Because of Ms. McNeal’s assistance I was able to get my property back. She was on top of things from beginning to the end of time and beyond. I appreciate all that she did, I can’t thank her enough for her help in a very difficult and trying time.

Outstanding Attorney Who Fights for Client
Kelly was the fourth attorney that I’ve had over the years of dealing with my ex-husband. He frivolously sued me several years before, and I ended up with attorneys convincing me that there was no way to prove that he (a sole-proprietor doctor) made more than I do (a school teacher). Kelly was able to right all of the wrongs that had been perpetrated by poor and bullying attorneys over the years. She fought for me, kept me well-informed, kept an eye out for my bottom line, and gave me a court victory! I would definitely recommend Kelly to anyone needing a hard-working, honest, knowledgeable attorney.

The BEST attorney I’ve found in Gainesville
Thanks to my ex-husband I had two prior frivolous lawsuits with another (Very BAD) local attorney in town before finding Kelly. She was/is AWESOME, she did things quickly, efficiently, by the book and was always very responsive to my concerns/needs as well as worked with me on a payment plan suitable to my budget. She put my idiot ex in his place and mine and my kids’ lives have been a lot more peaceful and quieter since. With her I spent a FRACTION of what the first and useless attorney had charged me. I HIGHLY recommend her and in fact have already referred several others to her. I would NOT go anywhere but to Kelly for any/all my legal needs.
Beth, June 21, 2012
When looking for an attorney verbal agreement contract, I was extremely fortunate to find Kelly McNeal. She has been tireless in handling my case and always kept my best interests in mind. I strongly recommend Kelly McNeal for your legal matters. This case is still in mediation.
John, June 20, 2012
Kelly McNeal is very timely and knowledgeable. We used her in our sons child custody case and still use her today for day to day matters as needed. She is extremely personable and I would highly recommend her.
Sheila, June 19, 2012
Mrs. McNeal handled my child custody case with efficiency and care. She was prompt to reply to all emails and phone calls and was knowledgeable in all aspects of the case. In addition, she remains my go to attorney for any and all inquiries regarding legal advise. I would recommend her to anyone in need of great representation in Alachua county.
James, June 19, 2012
Highly Recommend Mrs. McNeal
We used Mrs. McNeal in a divorce settlement case, just wish we were able to use her in the actual divorce. We would not have been going back to court again. Very professional and knowledgeable.
