About Our Firm

Maritza Gonzalez has provided legal services to clients since 1984. Prior to opening her own practice, Ms. Gonzalez worked for law firms in South Florida handling family law, commercial litigation, real estate and business transactions.

As a solo attorney since 1994, Maritza Gonzalez is able to focus exclusively in marital and family law. Ms. Gonzalez is a member in good standing with the Florida Bar, including the Family Law Section, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the Broward County Bar Association, and the Hispanic Bar Association. Ms. Gonzalez is pleased to announce that she has become of counsel to the Law Firm of Schantz and Schantz, P.A. The Firm devotes its practice exclusively to handling divorce and family law matters for their clients.

Maritza Gonzalez believes that clients are better served when they can put aside emotions and come to an out-of-court agreement in divorce and family law matters. In many proceedings before a family court judge the parties have little input and even less control over the outcome. This commitment to achieve an out-of-court resolution of a divorce or family law matter whenever possible is reflected through her membership in the Collaborative Family Professionals of South Florida and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Regardless of the issues you are facing in your divorce or other family law related matter, Maritza Gonzalez can handle your case equally well in both English and Spanish. Because Ms. Gonzalez and her staff are bilingual, there will be no language barrier in communications with clients.

In the community, Ms. Gonzalez has also served as an adjunct professor at Broward Community College and Nova Southeastern University lecturing on various law courses.

Because divorce and family law touches all aspects of people’s lives, Maritza Gonzalez often involves psychologists, parenting coordinators, accounting and counseling professionals to support her client’s case and emotional needs.

Fluent in Spanish, Ms. Gonzalez also advises and represents Hispanic clients, providing them with clarity and an understanding of family law.
