I hired Alberto Ayo to help me with my divorce. Alberto was always very thorough, knowledgeable and reliable. I am very satisfied with the service I received from him, and I highly recommend him for anyone that is looking for a lawyer for their divorce.

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.

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.

I was a little in doubt until I saw him do a deposition of my spouse. It was brutal !! From that point on everything went my way. My kids are finally safe from my drug addict wife. Nice job

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Claudia Blackwell is a new attorney on our case, from the same law firm of Ayo & Iken, due to our current attorney being on maternity leave. My case is a couple of years old, and Ms. Blackwell has only been on this case for a few weeks. However, the way she represented me in court yesterday, is the exact way I wanted to be represented. She showed the same passion and tenacity me and my family feel towards this case. From the day we met, to the communication in the interim, and finally her representation in the court room. The services from Ms. Blackwell are superb to say the absolute least. Thank you, Claudia!

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.

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.

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!

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
