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.

Finally, someone willing to do the work required to win! I hired Mr. Iken from out of state, after two other attorneys failed to produce any meaningful results. He’s tough and prepared to work for results. In weeks Mr. Iken has managed to do what the other two couldn’t accomplish in months. I knew I had a valid argument and a winable case, I just needed someone as aggressive as the opposition. Finally! Mr. Iken listens to what I have to say, gives sound legal advice, and works hard. I think he studies legal material in his sleep! His fees are higher than other lawyers, but well worth every penny so far. Other attorneys have watched as all of my rights were trampled on, but Mr. Iken is speaking up and I finally have hope.

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.[/intense_testimony] [/intense_testimonies]

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.

I recently settled a long-term divorce with Attorney Kristal Knox representing me. She was very professional, honest, and worked in my best interest at all times. She was very accessible and has wonderful office staff to support her client’s needs in a timely manner, and I highly recommend her.

Ms. Knox demonstrated a passion for her profession and me as an individual. She took the time to assess my unique situation and determine the best course of action to reach my desired goal. She kept me informed of the process and always had an answer to my questions in a timely manner. I was fortunate to have her knowledge and skill work for me. She is definitely one of the best attorneys practicing law today.

Kristal has helped me with my divorce and all of the issues my ex-wife continues to cause. She has never steered me in the wrong direction nor has she been a money hungry lawyer like others I have had. I highly recommend her to others and as proof I have used her for the last 5 years.

We retained Ms. Vogel in Aug., 2014 for relocation. She provided realistic expectations explaining several different scenarios we should be prepared for. There were several unexpected incidents and she immediately and aggressively responded. It was expected to take approximately 4-6 months to resolve. As planned we were relocated in 4 months with a far better conclusion that we ever expected. We were kept informed in a timely manner, usually same day, every step of the way. All support staff were just as professional! We appreciate all they’ve done and feel fortunate to have found such a professional team!

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.

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.

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 have had the pleasure of working with Kristal for the last 5yrs. She has been able to help me in every aspect of my divorce and many family law issues. She provides honest feedback and doesn’t make selfish actions that will just waste your money like other lawyers I have had. Her staff and associates have all treated me with respect and dignity and when I have questions or issues Kristal or one of her associates will usually get back to me within 24-48hrs.

I hired Jeana after my previous attorney took my money, provided no services and closed his practice without notification. After such a negative experience I was very careful about my selection. They say things happen for a reason and in my case they did. Jeana was the attorney I needed to get me through the divorce process quickly, diligently and being mindful of the financial burden already placed on me being that I was starting over with a new attorney. Jeana always kept me informed and had my best interests in mind unlike my previous selection. Since divorce is a very emotional experience, you need an attorney with compassion and empathy yet be tenacious too. Jeana held these qualities and more. I cannot say enough positive things about her. I did not think I could get through another day almost to point of dropping divorce. But with Jeana’s support, she was able to navigate her way through finalizing my divorce effectively and holding my hand at the same time. She knows the law, thinks outside the box and works endlessly to protect her client. She does all of this with the utmost of compassion. Without Jeana I do not think I would have been divorced today. I highly recommend Jeana for your legal needs.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Ms. Vogel and her staff at Jodat Law Group. The minute I walked out of my initial meeting with Ms. Vogel I knew I was in good hands and felt that I would be able to trust this firm. I was informed of every step that was taken with my case, I never had to wonder. We built a great rapor and I was extremely satisfied with my end results. Ms. Vogel guided me and preped me for what I was getting ready to face and her confidence and professionalism kept me very calm, expecially when entering into the court room. I thank Ms. Vogel for all of her hard work and also her staff. Thank You!!!!!!

My daughter was going through a very complicated divorce which involved a large business, numerous assets and young children. Ms. Vogel “took” over the case after the 1st attorney became quite ineffective. Ms. Vogel was diligent and discovered business assets that not even my daughter or I knew existed. She was able to resolve my daughter’s case at Mediation, because of her negotiation skills, and understanding of the law; especially what my daughter was entitled to. She received a substantial settlement for her interest in their business and child support that exceeded our expectations. By settling this case at Mediation she was able to save us thousands of dollars in attorney fees and costs. I am extremely happy with Ms. Vogel and have recommended her to my friends, should they ever need a family law attorney.

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 reccomend him to anyone.
