Skilled Tampa, Florida attorneys for divorce and family law matters


We Know Family Law

We are a boutique Tampa family law and mediation firm.

Our family law attorneys are advocates experienced in matters involving alimony, child custody, child support, equitable distribution, military divorce, paternity, and relocation.  They have held prominent leadership positions in the Tampa community, published numerous articles, and taught courses in continuing legal education (CLE) to other lawyers.  In fact, other lawyers in Southwest Florida who needed to get divorced often hired us to represent them.  We are lawyers with the knowledge and experience to resolve your case.

We Represent Our Clients Zealously

We pride ourselves on doing our best in every case.  Every client is important.  We help people in all walks of life and in all types of family law matters, from alimony disputes to complex custody battles to high-net worth asset allocations.  People come to us when they need lawyers who handle complex cases, difficult situations, and deliver proven results.  

We Are Trial Lawyers

Our attorneys are not just book smart; we are trained advocates who learned how to “think on our feet” in Tampa courtrooms.  Our lawyers have been recognized by our peers, the Florida Bar, and independent legal publications such as Super Lawyers Magazine, Martindale Hubbell, and AVVO for our excellence in trial advocacy.  In 2017, Richard J. Mockler was recognized by the Hillsborough County family law community when he received the Theodore Millison Professionalism Award, which is presented by the Stann Givens Tampa Family Law Inn of Court.  With our courtroom experience, you can be confident that our adversaries know that we mean business. 

We Will Understand Your Situation

We understand through personal experience that a divorce or other family law matter can be one of the most difficult and stressful experiences that a person can go through in life.  No two family law cases are alike; each one presents its own unique circumstances and challenges and potential pitfalls.  That is why you need skillful negotiators and seasoned trial attorneys on your side.  We will listen to you; we will help you understand your rights and identify attainable objectives; and we will develop an effective legal strategy that works within your budget.

We Develop a Winning Strategy

If your case is contested, you need to have confidence that your attorney can present the facts to the judge - in the light most favorable to you.  We take time to analyze your case from different points of view so that we can generate winning arguments that are persuasive to judges and anticipate the challenges we may face in the courtroom and during mediation.  We use divergent thinking to find solutions to hard cases.

We Are Willing to Negotiate But Ready to Fight

Sometimes one cannot know peace without first fighting for what is right.  Although we prefer to live in a world where thoughtful negotiation always prevails over litigation, in our experience successful negotiation is only possible if it is backed by a credible threat of winning in the courtroom.  We take great pride in working hard to negotiate cost-effective resolutions outside the courtroom.  We understand the risks, expense, and emotional drain of prolonged litigation, and we strive to accomplish our clients' objectives through collaboration, creative thinking, and mediation.  However, if necessary, we are always ready to fight for you rather than give in to the unreasonable demands of litigation bullies.
