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.

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.

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.

Jim helped me navigate through a bitter child support case. The most fair result was achieved.  Also he persisted even i myself failed in returning communications for a period of time. He reengaged me and kept the case on track.  The final outcome was the one desired.

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.

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.

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. But never make the mistake of hiring KEL. Law firm is too big for divorce. Went through 4 attorneys.

I must say , i never thought i’d have to hire an attorney, But none the less i have.
Jenniffer Schulte has made this very painless for me. She has discussed everything in detail leaving me with no questions left unanswered . Really has me feeling no stress.

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.

Jennifer is a person of integrity who helped me in a very difficult situation. She really cared and handled this case for me all the way through.

Be blessed

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 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 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 had a lot of damage control on a UCCJEA between FL & NY where the issuing state non-conformed, issuing orders anyway!
Jeana came in at the 11th hour to help save the day rescinding a
warrant effective, and minimizing further harm. The out of state’s compiled Orders were complex, but she was up to speed also!

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.

Brandi – Avvo

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.

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.
