    “A huuuuuuuge gigantic from the heart thank you to Rita Jackman, world's best Real Estate attorney for helping my client out above and beyond. Came to the rescue and there are not enough words.”

  • Honesty, integrity, determination, and comfort through such hard times...

    “Rita Jackman is an extremely credible advocate! She and her law firm were very compassionate and caring to advise and represent me through some very difficult cases. She was there anytime I needed her! I always felt I was one phone call away from an answer. Also, she helped me understand countless documents of legal red tape at ease. Honesty, integrity, determination, and comfort through such hard times, are four words that I would say define "Your Advocates, Jackman, Stevens, & Ricciardi, P.A. With that said, I would highly recommend this law firm to any of my friends, family, and loved ones. I have never had such a wonderful and eye opening experience! Thank you for everything!”

  • I would highly recommend their firm!

    “My husband and I met Adam Stevens and Rita Jackman about 2 years ago. My husband was relieved from his employer, unexpectedly, in March 2012. He had been with his employer for 23 years and had worked his way up to the top position in the company. He was the single source of income for our family of 6. We were living check to check, like most people do, and really at a loss on how we were going to not only pay our bills, but live day to day. We talked to several attorneys, all of who seemed uninterested or told us that we didn’t have a case. My husband and I agreed that we would talk to one more firm. We made an appointment to go and talk to Mr. Stevens and Ms. Jackman. When we met with Mr. Stevens and Ms. Jackman, they took the time to listen to our story. They were compassionate, offered comfort, and most importantly gave us HOPE! When we left their office that day, we were able to hold our chins up, which we had not been able to do in a very long time. Within a short period of time they directed us on a path to take appropriate steps to hold the responsible parties (employer) accountable. Mr. Stevens and Ms. Jackman educated us on the legalities of our case with sensitivity to the personal emotions that were involved. They empowered us to see, and bring, the full scope of our legal claim to court. They not only added their name to our case, but their reputation as well. After working with Mr. Stevens and Ms. Jackman, I would highly recommend their firm! You will find that they are very responsive, empathetic, forthcoming, and most importantly a working partner in your claim.”

  • He was compassionate and wanted what was best for me and my family.

    “During a very difficult time in my marriage, I considered separation/divorce and over the course of six months, Jorge Santana was there to walk me through my options. He was always available to answer my questions and ease my concerns. He was compassionate and wanted what was best for me and my family. He respected my choices at every stage while helping me brainstorm best solutions. He is caring, resourceful and knowledgeable of unique issues pertaining to military families. He thinks outside the box and his advocacy on my behalf helped me feel empowered. Thanks to all of his assistance, my family and I are very satisfied with the outcome. I know I have an attorney I can trust and go to with questions anytime.”

  • ... he is a straight shooter, honest, fair, tough, understanding and above all loyal.

    “When seeking an attorney it is important to hire a professional that will be honest, winning is important but conducting ones self with honesty and integrity is more so. I hired Jorge Santana to represent me in a matter that was extremely important, my children's future was at stake. Jorge guided me through the legal challenges and was always there to answer questions and draw from his experience, to develop the best strategy for me. Within the field of law Jorge Santana is a tireless advocate for his clients, he is a straight shooter, honest, fair, tough, understanding and above all loyal. When your in a battle it's the teammate next to you that matters. Jorge is the teammate you want, need and must have. Although my legal battle is over, a resounding victory. I will always be grateful that I made the decision to retain Jorge Santana. Going forward I have the privilege of saying he is also now a great friend.”

    Joe Canete

  • He was friendly and very efficient.

    “We used Richard Ricciiardi about two years ago, and he charged us 500 for a revocable trust, and included durable POA and living wills for free. He was friendly and very efficient. Before writing this referral, I called his office to make sure he's still at the same office, and he is. He's just over the Veterans bridge, at (239) 689-1096. His receptionist actually emailed me a price list, and he's still very reasonable! My husband and I really liked him.”

  • She has provided me with a great sense of comfort to know that my case is in the right hands.

    “Rita Jackman is truly an advocate…After interviewing other attorneys, I could sense there was more interest in the billable hours than the case itself.

  • The sellers are comfortable, the family in New York are calm and happy, and we have a successful closing. Thank you Rich!

    “I'm selling a riverfront home for an older couple, and the closing is scheduled for Monday at 1 pm. The daughter calls me from NY on Sunday at 5 pm and they are freaking out because there isn't an attorney present to protect the family's interests, and that's how it's always done in New York. Mr. Riccardi returns my call that night, moves his schedule around, and meets us at the title company an hour early to review the documents. The sellers are comfortable, the family in New York are calm and happy, and we have a successful closing. Thank you Rich!”

    James Sommers

  • Truly thoughtful legal team

    “Our daughter lived in Fort Myers whereas,, my wife and I are Yankees. Our daughter passed away last fall. Needless to say, we were at a loss as to what needed to be done and especially who we should contact for assistance. The undertaker recommended Mr. Ricciardi. Being leary of lawyers in general and not knowing any in Fort Myers we were nervous about contacting Mr. Ricciardi but decided to give it a shot. It was the best decision we ever made. Mr. Ricciardi was extremely thoughtful and truly went the extra mile to help us through this difficult time. He even stored my daughter's car in his garage until it could be returned to BMW, because we needed to return home. Since last December the firm has been there to guide us through the probate process every step of the way. Beth Mikovitz, Mr. Ricciardi's legal aide has been in constant contact and has answered every question I have had. This firm has done an excellent job and done it at a very reasonable price. I cannot say enough good about their work. Beth has become a personal friend and despite the situation which created our relationship, I will miss our at least weekly conversations. Sincerely, John Turner”

  • Best Attorney I have ever used.

    “Rita Jackman has been a refreshing change from my past experiences with legal matters. I appreciate that She gets back to me in a timely manner.

I highly recommend. Vic Tabarrini”

Thank you for all you have done.”

  • It is important to know that the little guy has someone who's willing to defend them from the money mongers!

    “My name is Ron Olbekson. I am an architect with both a Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree from a major university. I have owned my own architectural firm, Ocean Architecture, for over thirty years. I have designed and gotten built strong and exquisite buildings throughout Florida and beyond. Recently I was being threatened by a major american corporation who promised to help us get a mortgage on a house but in fact created obstacles to prevent the same; expensive obstacles! As is quite often the case these days, the rich and powerful have there way with the less fortunate, almost as though they are farming us like a crop of produce! They keep us disadvantaged so we can't challenge them, only survive, never get-ahead. I was fortunate though in that I contacted "Your Advocates", the law firm of Jackman, Stevens & Ricciardi, PA. Lawyer Rita Jackson came to our rescue challenging this major corporation for their apparent illegal business practices. Ms. Jackman came to our rescue challenged them in court where her cool demeanor and superior knowledge of the law made it a win against corporate injustice! She prepared well ahead of time was ahead of the opposing team at every legal point! As such, I have no reservations in recommending Rita and her colleagues for injustices being perpetrated in our society today. It is important to know that the little guy has someone who's willing to defend them from the money mongers!”

  • Adam was able to identify the issue quickly, cut straight to the point, with certainty, thereby making me feel confident.

    “I spoke with 3 foreclosure attorneys and one probate. None really understood what I needed to do or if I had to do anything at all. Adam was able to identify the issue quickly, cut straight to the point, with certainty, thereby making me feel confident. I was offering to hire him if he thought I should do something. He assured me I was fine. That he didn't want to take money that I didn't need to spend. I would hire this guy in a heartbeat.”

  • ... he listens to your concerns and fears and fights for them as they are his own.

    “This has truly been a long ride for me as a simple divorce turned into an unnecessary stressful event. I truly wish I would've known about this practice when I decided to proceed with this divorce back in 2014. Jorge Santana actually cares for his clients, he listens to your concerns and fears and fights for them as they are his own. He keeps you updated on all details and makes sure you're okay with any and all decisions before he makes a move. He seems to always be available to his clients at all times, I often wounder if he sleeps. I am very great full for his attention to detail and his knowledge of the Law. He shows me that he is very passionate about his career in every way he operates. He is simply a good person and an amazing attorney. It's never too late to switch attorneys in the middle of a case and I'm glad I did.”

    “First, I want to say thank you to all the hard work and dedication that Jorge Santana has done for me and my children. He truly went above and beyond to make sure that I was involved in every step of this rough journey and tried to make things uncomplicated for me when I didn’t understand the reasoning behind the actions. Mr. Santana has showed me that not all lawyers are in this occupation for the wrong reasons, but some especially him are trying to make a difference and help the wrong get corrected especially in my case where there were false accusations that occurred. I have and will continue to refer him to anyone who asks me if I know of a great lawyer. He really takes his job to heart and I am forever grateful for his help in this time period of my life.”

  • Adam Stevens is outstanding, a WINNER!

  • Thank you "Your Advocates" for all the support!!!

    “Mr. Richard Ricciardi... has a great gift, an ear for the human soul. We needed some MAJOR assistance to save my mom's house and fulfill her wish to bless her five children. The house was sold and the family receives a surplus... talking about... a win, a win, a win situation this is the poster story for heirs. As you know, clients and lawyers are two giant islands but without a "Beth" bridge both parties could remain disconnected for the total case. Beth's skill set has found a delightful professional way to keep the Folkes Family on the same page modeling the beauty of Golden Gate Bridge. Finally, our in-field diamond team is Richard, George, Beth... and the spirit of the mom Folkes on home plate. Thank you "Your Advocates" for all the support!!!”
