Client Reviews for Ayo & Iken

A sampling of client reviews for our legal team. Each review has a link back to the original source, so you can get a more balanced view of client reviews for each of our attorneys. Where the review contains results – prospective clients may not obtain the same or similar results.


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.

Howard was my lawyer during my bankruptcy and he was fantastic. Understanding, non judgemental honest and upfront… all the things we hear that lawyers aren’t. Even almost a year after my case was done with he corresponded with me through e-mail and over the phone with my questions. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was seeking an attorney after experiencing issues in family law court. After reading countless reviews for attorneys in the Tampa Bay area, I made the choice to retain services from Ayo and Iken. They were able to assist me with a payment plan, and my attorney, Kristal Knox, also gave me a free consultation for my first visit with her. Their office is very clean, and all of their staff is very friendly. The attorneys from this law firm are more knowledgeable than any other attorneys I have ever dealt with in the past. I was able to achieve the results I needed, and would use them in the future if need be. Ayo and Iken is the law firm I would recommend to anyone needing assistance with family law issues!

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!

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 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.

The only regret I had about my experience with Attorney Belcher and her staff was that they were my second choice. I was referred by a colleague to another attorney to handle the divorce of my 10 year marriage. BIG mistake…. After 7 months of working with my prior attorney, 5 trips to court the parties were still unable to reach an agreement on any of the issues. My attorney was spinning her wheels and not getting anywhere. I knew it was time to find a new lawyer. I read about Attorney Allison Belcher and had a feeling she was the right lawyer for me. After my first meeting with her I felt extremely confident in my decision to retain her. She is brilliant! After listening to my case she knew exactly what needed to be done to bring the matter of my divorce to a closure. She explained what her plan of action was and what was needed to execute it. She came through with everything we discussed. In 3 months my divorced was finalized. Working with her and her staff was a pleasure. They were knowledgeable, very efficient and friendly. They took a lot of the stress out of a stressful situation. The attorneys at The Law Office of Ayo & Iken are amazing! They were able to help me get closure on that chapter of my life and I am now able to move forward onto the next chapter of my life. THANK YOU!

Mr Ayo was my attorney in the case of changing my parenting plan. My situation was very different because I am active duty military out of the state of florida. He was very aggressive and knowledgeable. He took the right steps at the right time. I am very glad. I hired him and very satisfied with the results of my case.

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!

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.

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.

Allison was my primary point of contact through my issue, which lasted about 20 days. Allison was very attentive to my needs. She kept me informed and provided the reassurance one desires. I would highly recommend obtaining this firm in future family issues.
