Reviews for Our Attorneys – From Past Clients

A sampling of client reviews for our legal team. Each review has a link back to the original source, so you can get a more balanced view of client reviews for each of our attorneys. Where the review contains results – prospective clients may not obtain the same or similar results.

My previous attorney was doing a very poor job of representing me to collect unpaid child support (severe lack of communication, 1 invoice over 2 years, some paperwork not filed, frequent change of support personnel, etc.). Jim took over on short notice (a few months before court date) and quickly got up to speed. He knew what was fair and legal: I was owed child support and the ex admitted it in his own writing, but simply chose to stop paying. He resolved to settle for nothing less. Because the previous attorney failed to file the financial disclosure with the court, and there was no proof of assets to liquefy; all the GM could do was reinstate wage garnishment as previously ordered. Jim did a fine job of showing the debtor did nothing to fulfill his responsibilities by asking direct questions of him in front of the GM.

We had a lot of damage control on a UCCJEA between FL & NY where the issuing state non-conformed, issuing orders anyway!
Jeana came in at the 11th hour to help save the day rescinding a
warrant effective, and minimizing further harm. The out of state’s compiled Orders were complex, but she was up to speed also!

I was very pleased with his service. I had a custody case over my newborn son and Bruce was able to get me exactly what i asked for and helped me understand everything that i had questions about. Thanks again Bruce.

Mr. Iken represented me for almost 3 years, even after I relocated from the Tampa area. From our first interview, I was thoroughly impressed and I always felt confident that Howard was in control of every issue that arose. He was readily accessible, quick to respond to my calls and messages and took the time to explain each issue that came up. Mr. Iken was tenacious in the court room and firm yet fair when dealing with the opposing side. He has an extensive knowledge of Florida Law both in the family court and bankruptcy arenas, and I utilized his services for both of these concerns. I always felt like I was reasonably billed and I believe that Mr. Iken’s fees are fair and just.

Alberto Ayo and Melissa provided exceptional service, and they expedited my divorce in a timely manner. The entire process was done in 3 weeks.

Mr Ayo was my attorney in the case of changing my parenting plan. My situation was very different because I am active duty military out of the state of florida. He was very aggressive and knowledgeable. He took the right steps at the right time. I am very glad. I hired him and very satisfied with the results of my case.

Jason was consulted and hired for representation for guardianship matters involving my father. Jason is informative, proactive, knowledgeable and most of all caring. We are not just a case, we are people who’s feelings are taken into consideration. We have been with Jason for numerous years and he has always been available when ever needed. I highly recommend Jason Ponder.

Attorney Blackwell has been handling my family law issues for a few years because of several complex matters. Claudia is not only professional and knowledgeable, she provides a human connection that gives her clients reassurance during emotional and stressful times. I have and will continue to recommend Attorney Blackwell to those seeking a family law professional.

Howard was professional, upfront, realistic and nonjudgemental. I felt completly comfertable with him and did not have any issues reaching him during my case. I also was able to speak with him following my case over the phone, almost a year later. I was surprised to find a lawyer who was still willing to help and answer my questions after so much time had gone by. I would absolutely recomend him to anyone.

We hired Jeana to handle a case for us in Florida because we reside in the state of Arizona and she was great! We actually hired her several times to handle a family matter for us, and she never failed, she fought hard for us and we are grateful to have found an honest attorney that we could depend on to work for us and do the work that we asked of her without hesitation. Do NOT go to a second rate attorney for any legal needs because you will find out as we recently have, that you get what you pay for!! We would definitely hire her for any future problems arising out of the state of Florida!
THANK YOU
JEANA VOGEL!
Sincerely

Jennifer Schulte and Jason Ponder are both empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. From our first meeting, I was told what to expect, and how they were going to proceed with my case. I am very proud to have had Jennifer and Jason as my attorneys. I can not thank you enough for the superb representation you provided me.

My hearing date was pushed ahead faster than I was expecting and I had no time I find an attorney at least that’s what I thought. I had a very short time to find an attorney, this office was able to answer my questions online over the weekend and schedule me bright and early Monday for a consultation with Jason Ponder. We were in court that Wednesday.

I was referred by a friend that had an excellent experience with Mr. Iken and when I met with Mr. Iken I realized why she had recommended him to me. Mr. Iken was courteous, friendly, professional, polite and made me feel that I was not just another case file, that I was a valued client. His attention to my case made me feel comfortable with the experience I was enduring. For me, my case was difficult yet he made me feel at ease. He paid attention to every detail and maintained contact often. I would highly recommend Mr. Iken’s professional services to anyone.
