The MGR Law Firm, PLLC
The MGR Law Firm was founded in Orlando, Florida in 2011, by Attorney Marivette Gonzalez Rivera. The firm focused exclusively in family law matters. The MGR Firm was created to provide legal assistance to families facing some of the most difficult times in their lives. Mrs. Rivera knowing herself firsthand the weight and confusion of divorce wanted to be the voice for those who could not speak for themselves. She committed to listening, understanding, and providing zealous representation to her clients in family law matters, ranging from uncontested divorce to complex property division, contested custody, and child support issues.
Due to her reputation in the legal community and the representation of her clients among other factors, she was able to grow her practice and form the MGR team. With the addition of her associates and legal team throughout the years, the firm was able to reach and provide legal assistance to many families in Central Florida.
In 2021, Mrs. Rivera relocated to Colorado and The MGR Law Firm closed its doors temporarily. Mrs. Rivera was admitted to the practice of law in the State of Colorado in 2021 and had the opportunity to work with two reputable Colorado law firms.
In 2023, The MGR Law Firm reopened its doors to provide services in the State of Florida and Colorado with a new focus. Currently The MGR Law Firm focuses on Virtual Mediation and Contract Attorney Family Law Services for firms and solo practitioners throughout the State of Florida and Colorado.
Mrs. Rivera's commitment, as the founder of The MGR Law Firm to helping families, will and always remain the same in whatever role she takes in the family legal system. She is committed to listening to your unique family law matter, providing the best customer service, and facilitating the communications between the attorney represented parties so that the parties can come to their own amicable resolution.
