Joe Little, a family law attorney at Ayo & Iken, has been practicing family law for 30 years. He comes from a family tradition of family law, with his father-in-law and sister-in-law also being prominent family law attorneys. Little enjoys family law because he can quickly help families in turmoil and make the best of a bad situation. He has never considered a different practice area and believes his 30 years of experience and academic background set him apart from other attorneys. Little’s years of practice and maturity carry weight with judges, and he has known many judges before they became judges. He finds it fulfilling to appear before judges he knew many years ago and sees it as part of his contribution to their success. Little believes in putting in extra effort when faced with difficult situations. He practices in a larger firm with 12 attorneys, which allows for collaboration and the sharing of ideas. The paralegals at his firm are highly skilled and contribute to the team effort in handling cases. Little believes that attorneys and law firms are worth the money they charge due to the complexity and technicality of the work involved. He considers himself an excellent choice for clients because he is honest, straightforward, and works hard to help them through the legal process.
It is an awful feeling to believe that your spouse is cheating on you. It can feel like your whole world is turning upside down, and everything you’ve worked so hard to build together is in jeopardy. If you have children, you may be naturally concerned about raising them and sheltering them from the truth. After all, infidelity can be hard to understand as an adult, much less as a child.
Get to know Attorney Michael McGinn. Mike discusses his outlook on representing both family law and criminal defense clients.
Family law attorneys in Florida have reason to be excited and it has nothing to do with their daily routine. Governor DeSantis signed into law a series of bills that have the potential to reshape families across the entire state. Previous years have brought minor changes in family law but nothing that can redefine the bulk of family cases proceeding through the Court system. A recent series of bills, now enacted into law, promise to change legal strategies, realistic goals, and the ultimate outcome of thousands of cases. Family law attorneys must now contend with their own version of hurricane season. The changes will radically reshape case outcomes for many decades to come. And attorneys stand to gain monetarily from the ongoing chaos.

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday signed a measure that will overhaul the state’s alimony laws, after three vetoes of similar bills and a decade of emotional clashes over the issue.The measure (SB 1416) includes doing away with what is known as permanent alimony. DeSantis’ approval came a year after he nixed a similar …
Among several other laws passed this year that significantly change marital and parental rights, Governor DeSantis signed into law new rights given to unwed fathers. The new law changes Florida Statute 742, a law that governs parental rights, child support, and responsibilities of both parents related to a newborn child. Beginning July 1st, 2023 many unwed fathers will now automatically receive specific parental rights that formerly went exclusively to the mother of the newborn child.
Governor DeSantis just signed into law a provision that will impact many child custody issues that have traditionally been handled by the Florida court system. One predictable result of this change: for certain types of situations there will be a steep increase in the complexity of custody cases, an increase in litigation accompanied by an increase in legal costs. This change unnecessarily injects politics and brinksmanship into what was a non-political, non-controversial law. Governor Desantis has achieved many good changes for the State of Florida. This latest law is not one of them.
