Practice Areas

The firm's attorneys focus primarily on the following areas:

Our firm has extensive experience handling a wide range of residential and commercial real estate matters.  We handle a variety of transactional needs, including negotiating, drafting, and preparing purchase and sale contracts, deeds, lease agreements, and other related documents, ordering and reviewing title insurance policies and surveys.  Our attorneys and staff personally conduct smooth and understandable real estate closings (in or out of the office).  When real estate-related disputes arise, we also handle our clients’ litigation needs including but not limited to quiet title actions, partition actions, boundary disputes, foreclosures, and landlord/tenant matters.  




When it comes to Creditor's Rights, we cover all the bases. We represent creditors in bankruptcy matters, including filing proofs of claim, and defending actions to void judgments or other liens.  We also pursue the remedies available to a creditor with a lien or right of possession to personal property through the means provided under the UCC and state law - including repossession and replevin actions. 


The attorneys at Lawrence J. Bernard, P.A., provide aggressive representation to lenders, businesses owners, and other creditors throughout the State of Florida.




Our firm has the experience necessary to successfully guide families through the estate planning and administrative processes. We handle all aspects of estate planning, including the drafting of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.  We also assist clients through every stage of probate and estate administration.  Our firm will help you move through the probate process in an efficient manner while keeping your needs in mind. 


We welcome the opportunity to assist you and invite you to contact us at your convenience or personally visit our office. 




The criminal justice system can be intimidating, and a conviction can affect your freedom, and your ability to earn a living. Our firm provides aggresive zealous representation for those charged with a wide range of criminal offenses, including assault, battery, domestic violence, DUI, drug possession, theft and other crimes.  We also have substantial experience in post-conviction motions in appeals.

We will fully investigate the facts of your case and strive to find the best possible result.  



The firm provides the full range of domestic relations issues including dissolution (divorce), alimony, child support, custody and visitation, modification or enforcement of existing orders, paternity, prenuptial agreements, relocation, name change, and other issues.  We strive to help our clients receive the best possible results, whether it be through negotiation, mediation, or litigation. 


You can trust our attorneys to provide you with the knowledge, communication, attention, and dedication you deserve. 


Getting a DUI or traffic citation can lead to serious consequences including increased insurance costs, substantial fines, license suspension or revocation, and in some instances jail time.  At Lawrence J. Bernard, P.A., we provide thorough and aggressive representation to clients with drunk driving charges, speeding tickets, reckless driving infractions, habitual traffic offenses, suspended licenses, and more.


No matter the type of case, we zealously defend our clients and remain mindful of our ultimate goal which looks towards dismissal and keeping potential penalties to an absolute minimum.
