Pamela Fero Law, PLLC

Pamela Fero Law, PLLC

Pamela Fero Law, PLLC handles primarily family law-related cases throughout the tri-county area. We have been in business since 2015.

Firm Overview

Our firm understands the emotional turmoil that most people feel when they are dealing with a legal issue that involves their family. We work to keep that turmoil to a minimum in a few ways.
*We are trained in the Collaborative Process and can assist you in a collaborative divorce
*Our attorney is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator
*On many cases, we are able to offer a fair, flat fee structure that reflects the value of the case along with giving the client the certainty of knowing exactly what they will pay. Not having to come up with money every few weeks (and not having to worry about your attorney withdrawing if you can't) takes a lot of pressure off of the clients.

Divorce

We are a family law firm serving the families in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties. We handle divorce, paternity, and adoption matters. When possible, we offer our clients a fair flat-fee structure to enable them to budget their case.

Our firm consists of one attorney and one paralegal, with additional support staff. We use technology to our advantage as much as possible to save our clients money while still producing quality results.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Education is always good, but it really pays to know what you are looking at. If a client comes to our office with a 'plan' that they've devised via Google, we will certainly look at it. However, it is our job to make sure that your case is handled correctly and in compliance with current law. What the client has found on Google may be from another jurisdiction or may have been changed when newer cases were decided.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes, we are. We charge a minimum of $600 to do so, depending on the amount and complexity of the documents.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

On occasion, the firm is willing to provide "unbundled" services. The client must understand, though, that in order to do so, the attorney must be completely familiar with the case in order to do so. It's one thing to go to a case management conference for the client because they do not feel confident in speaking to the judge and quite another to represent the client at mediation. You can expect to pay our hourly rate for time spent on unbundled services, including preparation time.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Absolutely! We actually offer a class that will teach clients which forms they need, how to fill out the forms, how to speak in court, and more! The class is offered as a recording for $300 or on a one-to-one basis for $500.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

Our attorney is trained in the collaborative process and is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator. Additionally, in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties, most family law cases go through mediation. While we will not shy away from litigation, we feel most families have better outcomes when they are able to reach their own agreements as opposed to having the judge order them to do something.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Our attorney is the mother of seven children - one step, three adopted, one foster, and two biological. In this mix are a variety of physical and mental ailments, members of the LGBTQ community, different educational needs, and different races. However, to our attorney, they are just her babies (even the grown ones!). As we are sure you can imagine, our attorney has seen pretty much everything!
Additionally, our attorney is a retired air traffic controller. Ms Fero retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2016 after 26 years of public service. Most people know that a controller's job is pretty stressful. Attorney Fero handles the stress of being a family lawyer with the same calmness she showed as a controller. She is also very familiar with looking at a problem from many angles to determine the best course of action. That has transferred well to her law practice.
