I met with Mr. Przepis regarding my interest in retaining your firm for my custody/family matter. I was extremely impressed with Mr. Prezpis’s professionalism as well his attention to my case, even in the short meeting we had. It took some time to get the money for the retainer, however I knew just in that one meeting it was going to be completely worth it!

I have received nothing but courtesy, respect and professionalism from your firm. It was so refreshing to have a firm give me the time of day to answer my questions and be available for my needs pertaining to my case. Bruce Przepis, and the entire firm of Ayo & Ikon are top notch in my opinion and I am so thankful for you all!

Jeana came to my family and I at a very rough time in our life. She was more then a lawyer. She was a support system, a shoulder to lean, patient, informative, tough, and compassionate. We were so blessed God directed us to her. With Jeana you can always be confident!

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.

We hired Jennifer to help us resolve a painful divide in our family, hoping to bring long lost members together again. No matter the time zone difference from across the world Jennifer still accepted to help us on our family’s case. She was very patient with the exchanging of files back and forth over email, scanning, and faxing. Even the rates were very affordable, very decent compared to other Orlando firms. After a few months, due to her hard work we accomplished big steps in our case. We travelled half way across the world to meet her in Florida and she was so gracious and hospitable. Advocating on our behalf, she did an impeccable job consulting with a State Attorney and many other professionals. She, her staff, and her firm are heroes for our family and our entire nation. She is going to court on our behalf today, half a world away. We feel like she is part of our family, advocating for us so dedicatedly. Thousands of people all over the world followed our story on national news networks and on social media. Jennifer’s outstanding work should be lauded and sought after by families who are seeking counsel to reunite with other family members through the legal process. Thank you Jennifer, your staff, and your firm, you’ve been a blessing to our family, our clan, and our nation.

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.

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.

I hired Jason to represent me in a custody situation. He was more than willing to listen to my circumstances, and offer the best legal recourse possible. He returned my phone calls, kept me informed, and guided me very well throughout the process. The judge ruled in our favor, and I’m sure it was due to Jason’s knowledge of family law and the strategy in which executed. I would recommend Jason to anyone who is looking for a quality, thorough , knowledgable attorney. I was very satisfied with his performance.

My experience with Alberto Ayo was very pleasant and professional. I currently live in Georgia and I was looking for someone to represent me in Tampa, FL for a case that was filed against me. Mr. Ayo was hired based on a recommendation that was given to by an attorney in Georgia. He was extremely knowledgeable and very aware of how to defend my case. When going to court he had all the facts lined out and was completely prepared to defend me. My trail was short and sweet leaving me incident and all charges dropped. It was comforting that I had the legal representation that understood what was needed when it was needed and that I was cleared of all accusations against me. I would highly recommend Mr. Ayo and his team to anyone out there.

Amazing Attorney – Crystal is very professional, intelligent, and down to earth. She is truly an Amazing Attorney. She will do whatever it takes to complete your case. From beginning to end she never stopped fighting, or disappointed me in any way. During my divorce case, she taught me alot. The biggest learning lesson was “there is no real “winning” during a divorce.” In the end you have a peace of mind. And when young children are affected…. it’s very important for the lines of communication to be open with both parties.

Jeana handled my case with priority, enthusiasm, and professionalism. I had no doubt that she was out for my best interest at all times. I would highly recommend her to anyone who had to go through the awful divorce process.

Ms. Shulte is a very intelligent, caring attorney. She assisted me in my divorce 2 years ago and just recently assisted me with terminating my child support after my ex wife passed away. When I recently called her to assist me about this she knew exactly who I was and remembered more details about my situation than I had expected. She is very quick to respond to my emails/phone calls. She is very easy to talk to. I couldn’t be happier with both of my experiences with her! If I ever need legal care again, she is undoubtedly the one I will go to!

While I was living out of state, I was extremely fortunate to have Attorney Iken in my corner during my recent divorce. My first two lawyers were somewhat intimidated by the opposing lawyer and consequently my case suffered because of it. Attorney Iken proved to be a very competent, compassionate and consistent defender of my best interests. He was a good listener who offered accurate and comforting advice. He was accessible and replied to my many question and concerns. He was always professional, protective, polite and honest. Mr. Iken is extremely wise and very strong – a rare combination indeed. I would highly recommend Mr. Iken to anyone who is seeking solid legal support.

He’s Just Who You Need!

Mr. Ellzey assisted our family in a most efficient and professional manner. He kept us informed at every step and knew exactly what to do. I would strongly recommend Mr. Ellzey for your legal needs.

Simply put, Mr. Feinberg is all you will ever need in an attorney! He anticipated my questions and answered them even before I knew I needed an answer. Prompt, professional, and personable… Even when he was working with another client Mr. Feinberg returned my call immediately thereafter… A rare trait in today’s business environment! I have come across many attorneys both personally and professionally in my life and none measure up to his combination of procedural knowledge and tenacity.

He did a great job. My case was dismissed. Was available for any & all questions. My written evidence was lost or misplaced, you will need to keep a copy of all your records, but other than that. Good job.

Mr. Ayo counseled me with due diligence and grasping the core of my case. He explained in details what my options were, always addressing my concerns, and trying to fully understand my needs. He is a very dedicated attorney, who looks at all the different angles of a litigation, trying to come up with a solution that is truly beneficial to his client.
I recommend him to those in need of legal assistance, and that are seeking personal treatment and a caring counselor.

Jim helped me with my estate matters after my divorce. He was fast, efficient and compassionate during a not so pleasant task. I knew I was in good hands. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

Jennifer helped my son through a horrible divorce and fighting for the safety of his children. She was awesome in court. Unfortunately she left KEL before it was finalized. Took months for the KEL new attorney got it finalized. I would recommend Jennifer to friend and family.

A very caring counseler 

Howard Ellzey is not only a fabulous attorney, but he is a great caring, compassionate man, he really took my case and problems to heart, and worked them as if they were his own, knowing that a person is in a very delicate and vulnerable position when an attorney is required to step in, is really where he excelled, using “kid gloves” to really help me understand what I was going to be going through, and really going the extra mile, to help bring me peace of mind and comfort, I was blessed to find such an attorney, I completely recommend Howard’s services, his skills are are well honed, and he certainly knows what he is doing in the pressure cooker of a court room, one consultation with the man will show you what I mean, a consummate professional, with the experience, knowledge, and know how, to bring anyone who hires him, the same blessing I experienced.

Sharp, skilled attorney who is compassionate and cares about his clients.

As a lawyer myself, I am very careful about the attorneys I chose to handle my matters. From the moment I met Howard, he quickly put me at ease and was able to come up with a good idea on how to help me with my legal issue. He planned it out, quickly executed on it, and within days had resolved the matter for me.

As for his interpersonal skills, I think lawyers should make their clients feel at ease, and not intimidated by the person who will be representing them. Howard will immediately make you feel comfortable and tell you very clearly how he can or can’t resolve your matter. To me, Howard is the perfect combination of a smart and diligent attorney, while also doing a great job gently guiding you through the legal process.

I highly recommend Howard, a capable, competent and zealous advocate for his clients.
