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.

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.

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.

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.

Alberto is an outstanding lawyer. He went the extra mile with me, as I had to go through eight (!) rounds of negotiation to get an MSA + Parenting Plan approved. If there’s such a thing as “winning” in divorce, then Alberto made it happen for me.

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

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.

I hired Howard Iken as my attorney to handle my divorce case. Not only did he secure a win for me in the eventual divorce trial, he was also successful in having the post divorce trial petitions (4) filed by my ex-husband dismissed. Mr. Iken is very professional and adept at developing strategies that are favorable to his clients. He is organized, thorough, creative and more than willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend Mr. Iken’s law firm to anyone seeking legal services.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Jennifer worked on my divorce and helped mediate a mutually agreeable settlement. She was patient, focused, and well informed on Florida law relative to my case. As difficult as this all was, it was managed well.

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.

Having worked as an investigator and later in my career as a counselor for divorces gave me plenty of exposure to Lawyers. Therefore, I had a lot of resistance and fears of working with any lawyer. Therefore, I did thorough research and found Howard Iken. I must say that I have nothing but appreciation for him. His knowledge, expertise, and support are priceless. First of all he does not sell you a dream, in other words he is upfront and honest at all times. He has also been extremely assertive and a big advocate for my daughter and my rights as a father in the court room. Outside of the court room he has been extremely supportive, accessible, and informative at all times. In fact many times I would send him an email with a question and would be surprised to receive a response right away. After my past experiences working in the system he has shown me that there are excellent lawyers that truly are there for their client’s best interest.
