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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Alberto Ayo and Melissa provided exceptional service, and they expedited my divorce in a timely manner. The entire process was done in 3 weeks.

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.

Fantastic Family Law Attorney -Mike was my attorney in a case regarding my children being able to move schools. Mike was always professional, caring, honest, and dependable. Mike gives you the truth and truly cares about his clients. Mike truly is an excellent attorney that I trust and would definitely hire again.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
