The best attorney Mrs. Cheryl McRae helped me out a lot she got my case dropped which was a felony and she did get my case dropped due to COVID-19. I want to say a special thanks to Mrs. Mary, the paralegal she’s easy to work with and very nice. I love these people so much I consider them family. If I ever get in trouble which I don’t plan on, I would hire them in a heartbeat. I love these people with all my heart. I’m just lost for words, I really don’t know what to say as I am just speechless.- Mike
Resolved quickly and professional. Very welcoming and great at explaining and informing on what to expect!- Nahla Gainesville, FL
This is this kind of firm and professional you wish to deal with when you need lawyer. I have an ongoing divorce case and I have been misguided by the firm I contracted. My lawyer made so many mistakes in a case that should have been easy to handle and that is when I called the Albaugh Firm to see how I can switch lawyer. First, they were very quick to respond, and I spoke with Tom Walker who was very fast on analyzing the facts and gave me straight responses and honest guidance. I even called him 2 more times and he was still very opened to discuss and give his professional opinion all the time. He was very honest, professional and caring and had given me more advise even though he couldn’t take my case at this point. I would definitively recommend Tom Walker and If I could, I would hire him today!!! Tom Walker was honest, professional, straight forward. He had given me more advise in few short calls than my lawyer did in more than 4 months. I hope I will not need a lawyer after that, but I need it I wouldn’t hesitate to call Tom Walker.- Estelle Burke, VA
Mary was my first contact and she was so helpful when I called, Bill was calling me back within 10 minutes. He heard my case and took me on and put my life back in place. Thank you. I will always recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for anything. Life back on track- T.C. Palm Coast, FL
I was lucky enough to have Tom Walker representing me when I found myself thrown into a devastating and extremely complicated family law matter. Tom was patient and understanding from the very beginning. I could tell he was genuine and truly cared about the best interests of everyone involved. His communication skills with the opposing party were impressive to say the least, and his ability to effectively communicate and negotiate not only showed me how talented and knowledgeable he is at what he does, but it also showed me that there was light at the end of the tunnel. I will also say that in addition to Tom, Mary is another asset to Albaugh Law Firm. She was always there to answer all my questions and concerns, and she made things run as smoothly as possible. My case dragged on for quite some time and multiple curveballs were thrown at us, but Tom was persistant and fought for me until the very end. The outcome turned out being better than I could have ever imagined. Tom gave me top notch representation and exceeded all of my expectations! I highly recommend Tom Walker to anyone needing a professional, competent, and honest lawyer with integrity.- Julie Palm Coast, FL

Tom walker handled my case and i couldnt have asked for a better outcome. He was there for me every step of the way and i highly recomend this law firm.- Brian W. St.augustine, FL
Tom was amazing! Handled my case quickly and affordably. Can't thank him enough and will use again for any future legal matters!- Eric T. St. augustine, FL
It is a sad situation when Family members take advantage for financial gain and bring hardship. From the moment I made contact with Cheryl regarding our very difficult Family issue, she was compassionate to the case. She reached out to me after normal working hours, she was responsive to every question we had. She attended to every detail, this Firm did not over bill for services and honorably refunded the trust for unused funds, Cheryl attended court on our behalf, she did everything to bring a positive outcome and resolve the situation. Cheryl and her staff handled all this without us even having to be present in the same City! She treated us as if we had walked in her office; the distance made no difference on her attention to our case. I pray I do not need to seek services again, however if I do, I would not hesitate to engage Cheryl and the Albaugh Law Firm again! Thank you for the care and kindness you provided our Family!- Stephanie N. Pensacola, FL
Tom Walker handled my case and I could not have been happier with the outcome. He was very straightforward and made me feel confident throughout the entire process. I know I made the right choice in choosing Albaugh to handle my matters.- Anonymous Jacksonville, FL
We hired Tom before he was with the firm he is now. We went over what needed done, he quoted us a more than fair price and did above & beyond what he agreed to for just that. We ran in to snags because of opposing party dragging her feet, but Tom was 1 step ahead of it all along. He not only listens but he knows his stuff! He gave us all options, was very upfront with each. Gave no false hopes, and seeing as how we are 1000 miles away we needed someone to represent us at court when we couldn't be there & Tom has done just that! He even impressed us with his knowledge of our case on game day he was a true bull dog! We are not done fighting our fight & wouldn't dream of any other attorney by our side fighting for our kids like they were his own!- Jeff St. Augustine, FL
We would highly recommend the Albaugh Law Firm. They are professional and will handle your legal needs in a timely and efficient manner.- Anonymous St. Johns, FL
Cheryl is my attorney for my matter and I worked with Mary from the firm. During the course of my divorce, I have been provided with outstanding legal guidance as well as ensuring that my legal cost were efficiently managed for me throughout this process. She was also very responsive via e mail and phone whenever I had questions and compassionate when I was stressed. Cheryl and her entire team is making a very difficult situation much easier to deal with.- Jamie W. St Augustine, FL
No matter the situation, make Albaugh Law your first call. They make you a priority and have the knowledge and expertise to fight for you. I recieved a speeding ticket and was uneasy about handling it myself. Tom took on the case for me and I couldn't be happier with my experience.- Patrick St. Augustine, FL
My husband & I hired Tom before he was with this firm, we had been through two other firms (fired both)... one might say we are 'overly aggressive', but it's my money & I want what I'm paying for... A little back story...we are in Pa, the case is in FL. We must make most case appearances via phone, & have just our attorney showing fave in court. That being said, Tom went over our case with a fine tooth comb, quoted us a more than fair price & went over & beyond to get what we needed done accomplished. There were unforeseen speed bumps along the way (OP is...well... difficult is an UNDERSTATEMENT) but not once did Tom back down nor request extra money for this dragging out far last expected date (again OP was the one stalling at every corner) But Tom was right there filing motion after motion, nipping her stabs in the butt, proactively offering up solutions to get us the best possible outcome. Now here we are (still fighting an uphill battle for custody of my husband's children)... Tom is now with Albaugh Law, & still representing us to our satisfaction & hopefully (in the near future) will see us to the end of this long agonizing journey. We wouldn't want any other attorney by our side! (Or rather fighting our battle for us 900miles away!)- Jeff & Ashley Witters Carlisle, PA
I needed help dealing with a traffic ticket I had received after an accident took place. I called one other place and they wanted a minimum of $1,000 just to get my 166 dollar ticket resolved and no points on my license BUT after calling Albaugh Law Firm I was so relieved. They took care of everything and made sure I knew everything that was going on. They are absolutely amazing and such a fair price for such great care. I definitely will never call anyone else ever again. Thank you so much Everyone working at Albaugh Law!- Rachel Saint Augustine, FL
Ryan Albaugh & his team are my 'go-to' if I need an attorney or legal advice every time because they are a down-to-earth, straight up team of attorneys who will always be my first choice in legal situations. I've known Ryan for more than 5 years and he's quick to return calls and has a very caring and compassionate demeanor toward his clients. Bottom line: they're the FIRST team I think of when I need legal advice! No one better!- Kelley BARRIGAR Saint Augustine, FL
Let me start by saying I recently used this law firm for criminal defense. I was accused of a crime that carried a minimum sentence of 2 years and a maximum of 5. From the very second I talked to Bill Arnau I had a feeling that he was going to fight. I told the truth the whole time to my attorney. I never lied to him. The fee was very reasonable. The last thing you want to do is call around for a good price. If you want an attorney that returns your calls. And if you want an attorney with a good paralegal. Look no further. I was never made no promises. But he let me know jail time wasn't even in his radar. He filed so many motions it was crazy. I've never seen anything like it. When your at your arraignment and a public defender speaks for you. You'll understand then why you need this firm. I was fully prepared to go to trial. An attorney could easily make it where you do go to trial which would benefit them. Bill never once even talked about a trial. I would call him and if he didn't answer I didn't leave a message. I still got a call back in less than 30 minutes. Some say an attorney is only as good as his paralegal. She was awesome. She kept saying it will all be over shortly. Don't worry. She had just as much faith in him as I did. The whole time I probably spoke 10 words to the judge.When all was said and done I received no jail time and no community service. It pretty much all went away. I just cannot stress to you when your standing in court what it felt like having Bill Arnau next to you. I own my own business and had a lot to lose and he got that. He's a former prosecutor so he knows how they think. Seriously before you hire any attorney make one call to this law firm.- Robert G.
I am going to put your number on speed dial just in case (god forbid) J.P. needs representation again because your firm will now be our default attorneys.- Anonymous
Dear Ryan and Crystal, We want to thank you both and the Law firm for getting us through this difficult situation, and for working on our behalf with Gladstone Law firm making sure our new deal was in place. I am very happy with our outcome. Hopefully I will not need a lawyer in the future, but if I do, I would certainly use your services again. Thank you very much C.S. and D.S.- C.S. and D.S.
This is by-far a top notch law firm. I reached out to the Albaugh Law Firm when I was in need of an attorney, and could not have been happier with the service, care, and support I received. Attorney Bill Arnau--and his delightful assistant Sharon--walked me through the entire process and were with me every step of the way, ensuring that I got the results I needed in a timely fashion. They were affordable, always available, and constantly going above and beyond what I ever could have expected. I would--and always will--recommend Albaugh Law for any legal needs, as they truly are an amazing, dedicated, and results-driven. Thank you!- A. Hauser
I have used Ryan Albaugh's services on several occasions and would highly recommend him. On a small scale - he walked me through an upsetting traffic violation last year with better than expected results. On a much larger scale, he and his associates have been guiding our family through a complicated Florida adoption. The care, consistency, respect and results that we have received from his office has blown us away. Ryan is most definitely a top-notch attorney and probably the best criminal and family lawyer in St. Augustine.- M. Palermo
I would highly recommend Bill to anyone I know, he did a great job with my case. Bill was very informative, any question I had he answered quickly and always made sure I understood everything. He was on top of my case and always let me know what was going on and the best move to make. Overall he was beyond excellent, the end result was better than I thought it would be because of the steady hard work he put into my case.- Anonymous
I worked with Cheryl when she was an assistant state attorney in St. Johns County. She always took time to hear my input and didn't brush me off when I had concerns. I used her services later as my divorce attorney and I got the same caring and professional results. I didn't feel like another case with her I felt like a person that mattered.- Jeff
'Bill was knowledgable and professional in regards to my case. He kept me informed every step of the way. Bill respected my time and took care of my dilemma quickly. I would highly recommend him.- Anonymous
Ryan is a wonderful attorney and works hard for his clients. He is never too busy to communicate and return calls and e-mails. He is on your side all the way.- Roger
I have had a need to use Ryan's services on 2 occasions - divorce and a domestic case. In both cases his work was outstanding. He is an individual of upstanding character and extreme knowledge of the law. He always kept me informed about case status and options. His billing was detailed and always clear in advance. There were never any surprises. I would highly recommend Ryan and should there ever be a need for attorney services in my future, I would seek his first.- Doug
Ryan, didn't just treat me like a client, he treated me like a person should be, especially when you are scared and very confused. I honestly believe he was the best attorney I could have asked for. It would appear he is well liked by the Judges of St. John's County and has formed a well liked reputation for himself with them all. I highly recommend him. Thanks to Ryan I'm not sitting in Jail right now. My story was very complex, and I'm so happy I chose Ryan to represent me. I'm truly blessed to have my second chance. It is extremely important to choose the right attorney, I unfortunately have chosen a couple of bad ones in the past. I hope this helps anyone in their decision. I don't mind them using my name it's the least I could to do to show my gratitude. Best of Luck.- C. Vaughn
I got myself in an unfavorable and embarrassing 'pickle.' I knew I needed legal assistance and a ray of hope for my dilemma. I received several mailers from Attorneys who said they could help me. After interviewing several Attorneys in my area I chose the Albaugh Law Firm. Bill and Ryan made me feel hopeful from our first meeting. Their knowledge of this type of case and pursuit for my innocence was unwavering. Bill took personal attention with my case and kept me informed of all discovery and new developments. My case was complicated and would need additional guidance after the judgement. Bill provided all necessary tools needed and helped in securing a favorable outcome. I would recommend the Albaugh Law Firm and its associates for a variety of legal services they offer. GREAT job Mr. Arnau.- Derek
I hired Mr. Albaugh first a year ago for a serious criminal matter where I was facing prison. Being a local business owner and father and having never been in significant trouble with the law before, I was terrified. Mr. Albaugh took the time to listen to my story and then thoroughly explain the process and his strategy to me - BEFORE I even hired him. He was the only attorney I spoke to (and I spoke to several) who I felt actually listened to me. He immediately calmed me down and assured me of the process. Everything progressed as expected, and in the end he was able to get the best result possible: diversion with a complete dismissal of the case, after I completed counseling and community service! I never anticipated such a positive result and couldn't be happier. Throughout the case Mr. Albaugh and his staff kept me informed and were always a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately, earlier this year, my wife and I decided to file for divorce. Again, I looked to Mr. Albaugh for help, and he was there. I have heard horror stories from friends whose attorneys added to the contentious nature of the divorce and rang up huge bills on them. I never felt Mr. Albaugh did that to me. Again, he explained the process and when the inevitable unexpected 'change-in-the-road' happened, he guided me through. He always remained calm and level-headed and refused to engage in the other side's drama, or even mine. This seemed to allow things to keep pushing forward, and manage the expense to me, which I appreciate very much now. Mr. Albaugh is a very good negotiator, and we were able to settle my case in mediation to my satisfaction, saving me undoubtedly thousands of dollars in attorney's fees and countless hours of time and stress had we gone to trial. In a nutshell, Mr. Albaugh is a lawyer you can trust to get the job done efficiently and in your best interests - he is worth every penny!!!!- E. Davis
Due to financial issues awhile back, I couldn't pay my traffic fines and ended up with a suspended license. This lead to driving on suspended license cases because I had to keep driving for work and my kids. I qualified for the public defender but they only wanted to talk about my latest case, not how to get me driving legally again so I could avoid all of this in the future. I knew I would end up in jail or not driving for years if I didn't clear up my past. I heard about Ryan through a friend, and researched him on the internet. I called him up and he took the time to listen to my situation and tell me what his strategy would be for getting me driving legally again. He took the time to verify everything I would need to do for my past and explained to me exactly what we needed to do to clear up my license. We were able to do that and Ryan got my new case reduced so that I wouldn't get suspended again. Hiring Ryan was the best decision I made and definitely worth the cost. He's not just a good attorney but he's also a nice guy who seems to care about taking the best care of his clients. I recommend him to any of my friends or family that ever find themselves in a bind.- S. Nixon
Excellent and helpful law firm! Albaugh Law assisted our family and was extremely helpful through the entire process. They kept us up to date during the process and were readily available when we had any questions! Special thanks to their paralegal, Sierra Marty, who quickly answered our numerous communications and helped us along the way. We would highly recommend this law firm!- A. Jasner

Great Team who will be there for all your questions.- H. Cianteo
If you like to be treated like a person, very caring and honest, he's the attorney for you. About 3 years ago, I was charged with very serious charges that could have given me prison time. It was a very complex case that involved St. Augustine police department and Rome, GA police department. Ryan had to investigate work in the case for me because the prosecutor wasn't going to do it. He pulled my phone and financial records. He did what he had to do to prove my innocence. This was a very bad time in my life, I felt like my life was over. I have grandkids and a lot of people that depended on me, prison wasn't option. The price I was quoted was very fair and did not change. I was found not guilty. He also arranged my expungement. I was very pleased with Mr. Albaugh's work and dedication, I highly recommend him for anyone!- L. Smith
Dear Albaugh Law Firm, Just wanted to give a big thank you from the B. family for everything you all did and going that extra mile to make us feel that we matter as people not just as clients!- The B. Family St. Augustine, FL
