Divorce Lawyer Client Review: A Complicated Divorce Goes Collaborative

Recently, I came across a very complicated divorce matter where two women had been battling in the court system for six years, even before the State of Florida recognized their marriage.  One of the women ended up firing her aggressive trial attorney and hiring me because I offered an alternative: collaborative divorce.  Once everyone agreed to stop fighting, we were able to reach an agreement within just a few months’ time.

That client, Pattie, recently wrote a touching review about my paralegal, Jennifer, and I at avvo.com.  You can find the review below.

As I am required to note by the Florida Bar, please understand that every case is different, and you may not receive the same or similar results.

The Law Firm of Adam B. Cordover & Staff are amazing, professional caring people. Please know that I don’t mean for this review to be long or boring, my intent is to shed hope & shine light into your present life from my past experience and situation.

My situation was very complicated from the start being a same sex marriage which for years was not recognized in the State of Florida until January 2015 and two properties involved.


I was already on a very dark drawn out path of battles with the wife between the two properties, having to replace my personal belongings, money to pay an attorney, fighting for myself and survival etc. Over the course of seven long years I had been through six attorneys costing me many thousands of dollars with absolutely no results greater than day one and no sign of being any closer to a settlement with my now ex-wife.

I had had enough when I was served again by the opposition in I believe December of 2014. My attorney at the time was all about fighting, litigation and raping me of money that I didn’t have. Honestly the fighting is not me, I just wanted this over and settled once and for all. Therefor I again went on a hunt for a new attorney via the internet and by reaching out to people that I know all over the country with hopes of someone knowing of an attorney that could help me END this seven year battle.

I found Adam B Cordover’s Law Firm on the internet claiming “Collaborative” divorce, a new generation divorce. I did some research and read up on Adam, his credentials, schooling, accomplishments, his Firm and the “collaborative” divorce and his success rate. I had my telephone consultation with Adam and after going over the process of ‘Collaborative” Divorce. FINALLY I saw light in my life! Once the then wife agreed to go through the Collaborative process to accomplish a settlement and divorce I retained Adam immediately.

My case was very “challenging” in every sense or word. Adam and his staff had their work cut out for them. Adam and his staff had to sift through years and years of documentation, filings, previously filed motions and deal with my fears of being railroaded again by my wife. My point is that Adam got it done and got it done within a year.
Jennifer, Adam’s Paralegal is an amazing person. Whatever I needed, questioned or had a problem with she took care of it and they were both there either via email (which worked best for me) or by telephone.

Pricing is very reasonable and costs are kept to a minimum as much as possible.

I highly recommend Adam B. Cordover and his Law Firm to those in need. I just wish I would have found him six years sooner.
