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.

Mr. Moyer handled my divorce with empathy and professionalism. His advice was reasonable and led to a quick and fair resolution. He clearly has a lot of experience and takes the time to answer all questions thoroughly. His rates were reasonable and there was no questionable billing. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Jason Ponder was able to answer my questions on the initial consultation. I
hired his services to expedite a court date for my final dissolution. Once he sent paperwork to court my court date was scheduled within 3 weeks. Now I have closure and can move forward with life.

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!

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.

Claudia Blackwell & the entire firm of Ayo & Ikon are top notch & I am so thankful for them all! I met with Ms. Blackwell on more than one occasion to prepare for my hearing & was impressed with her knowledge of my case in such a short time, her professionalism & understanding of the needs of my case, which has proven to be a common theme with the Ayo & Iken firm & it is appreciated. Ms. Blackwell was thorough, compassionate & well versed & made sure I was prepared, something my prior attorney never did. We attended my hearing & all I can say is WOW! Claudia did a FANTASTIC job! She was professional, unlike my ex’s attorney as well my prior attorney, & presented my case better than I could have imagined. It was clear her objective was to do her best & she did exactly that! She was aggressive, but professional during the hearing & was able to present the case exactly as I had hoped. As a result she was able to get across to the judge what I needed for my children’s safety & well being
