Reviews for Our Attorneys – From Past Clients

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

An Excellent Attorney – I highly recommend Ms. Phillips and her firm, Ayo and Iken as she and they provided me excellent legal services. Their combined expertise and experience laid the foundation for sound footing in the courtroom resulting in an exceptionally good outcome. I have found Ms. Phillips and her firm to be exceptionally ethical and accountable as they treated me with respect, kindness and compassion throughout the course of our case. I add that my questions and concerns were addressed and resolved in a timely manner (which I greatly appreciated) and that everyone I encountered within the Group was proficient in their respective role.

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.

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.

Mr. Ayo counseled me with due diligence and grasping the core of my case. He explained in details what my options were, always addressing my concerns, and trying to fully understand my needs. He is a very dedicated attorney, who looks at all the different angles of a litigation, trying to come up with a solution that is truly beneficial to his client.
I recommend him to those in need of legal assistance, and that are seeking personal treatment and a caring counselor.

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.

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.

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.
