What you Should Expect from a Clearwater Divorce Attorney


If you are in Clearwater and are thinking about filing for divorce, finding a best divorce attorney for your case is important. The obvious fact is that not all divorce lawyers operate in a similar manner and hiring the wrong Clearwater divorce attorney can change the outcome of your case.  We believe the experienced legal team at Ayo and Iken can provide superior service at this critical time in your life. Here are some things you should consider:

 

1. No attorney can ever promise a specific outcome

 

It is easy for some attorneys to give you a guarantee of a certain outcome. That is a powerful way to generate business. But attorneys do not make the final decision and it is impossible to accurately predict the exact outcome. Also, attorneys are forbidden by ethical rules from giving such a guarantee. If your attorney gives you a guarantee, the Bar considers them unethical and deceptive. At Ayo and Iken we strictly adhere to ethical rules. We also give you the basic thing that everyone expects: the truth !  We never sugar coat the truth. You need accurate information and advice so you can make crucial decisions about your case.

 

2. The attorney cannot work on contingency

 

The Florida Bar prohibits family law attorneys from working on contingency. It creates a conflict of interest, and it is against the rules. There are some rare circumstances where a contingency case in family law is permissible.  But the exceptions are few and far in between.

 

3. A lawyer should be readily available to answer questions about divorce in Clearwater

 

A good attorney gives you a “sample” of their knowledge. That is critical to helping you select the best Clearwater Divorce Attorney for your particular situation. Ayo and Iken attorneys give hard-hitting information.  You can be assured the initial consultation is a “warm-up” to doing what we do best: represent your best interests.

 

4. Be wary of attorneys who only handle uncontested divorces

 

When the going gets tough – the tough get going. The fact is that uncontested divorces do blow up sometimes. A good negotiator is a tough trial lawyer. Don’t hire the wrong attorney just because you think your case is uncontested. We handle the full range of cases – from friendly cases, to high conflict cases. That is our job and that is what we enjoy doing.

I hired Jason because I fired my previous attorney. Jason learned a two year on going dissolution of marriage case in a matter of weeks. Jason kept me more informed in a matter of weeks than from my prior attorney. He kept all his appointed times and the front desk receptionist was personal and professional.

During my dissolution hearing he came across as a gentlemen even to my ex spouse and his court room mannerism was second to none of what I had to go through with opposing counsel. Jason stated he was a good listener and he guided me prior and during court by redirecting questions for a better explanation instead of answering just yes or no question from opposing counsel. I understand this is strategy of counsel to only ask yes or no questions when they want to make a point, but during Jason’s cross examination, he filled in all the holes that I had dug for myself and allowed me to elaborate with my answers.

I was not anticipating the judge’s decision to be as favorable as it was for me but it was. I understand and am quite aware that not all decisions will go the way of the client, however, I would still give Jason an excellent rating had the final decision not been so favorable. i was well represented as was his firm. I am extremely happy with the professionalism and service provided by Jason and God forbid I am ever in a position to require an attorney for a divorce again, he surely will be my first call.

Best attorney I ever met

My business and personal life suffered during the down economy. I was forced to consider business and personal bankruptcy, the loss of my business and the loss of my home. I met with Mr. Ellzey and was surprised he was not mostly interested in taking money. He took the time to listen to my problems and asked a lot of questions about my and my business and my family. After he got the big picture of not only the facts but also of my values and priorities, he suggested to take some action on some things, to wait on other things, and to make good choices as we worked a plan. I worked with Mr. Ellzey over a few years to get out from under a lot of business debt, to keep our kids in school, and to save our home after we thought we were going to lose it. I do not believe sometimes how well things turned out when it all seemed so hopeless before Mr. Ellzey helped us. Above all, he was fair with me, never promised what he could not do, and delivered more than he ever led me to believe he could do.
