INCREDIBLE EFFORT AND DEDICATION DESPITE A DIFFICULT CLIENT
I initially found Antonio on this website after having a couple bad experiences with attorneys concerning my divorce. Throughout the process of my divorce Antonio guides and advised me on th right course of action, truly making me believe that he had my best interests at heart even though I didn't always heed his advice. Knowing I wasn't an easy client, Antonio nonetheless went above and beyond to fight for me and get me what I wanted and needed to see the process through to the end and ultimately over with. I'd trust him again without second thought, although I hope to never need a divorce lawyer again. I highly recommend Antonio for anyone going through a divorce because he didn't just make me feel like a client, he truly made my needs and wants a priority and worked countless hours morning and night to make sure I got the best possible outcome.

Antonio is an excellent lawyer and I promised myself to take a moment to thank him in public for all the hard work he put into my case and I appreciate it so much. I will recommend you to everyone looking for a family law attorney. My experience with you was outstanding. You always picked up all my calls and answered all my questions and concerns. He even answered on Saturdays and that's a big plus!

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE WITH UNFAIR FEES
Wife hired Antonio after she had paid over $3,000 dollars for what should have been a simple (and less expensive) uncontested divorce. The former lawyer was even using the excuse of a court order to demand more money. The problem was the court order was a standard order issued in every family law case when certain documents are missing. It's not a big deal just submit the documents requested. However, in an uncontested divorce it should never get to that point. Uncontested means both spouses agree to everything and all the documents including the petition, answer and a marital settlement agreement are signed, notarized and electronic filed on the same day. Once filed in court a final hearing is promptly scheduled to occur in a week or two from filing the documents.
In this case, the firm the Wife had hired was trying to squeeze all the money they could out of this poor lady. Her Husband now lives in another state and he agreed to the divorce. Should have been simple and quick but instead because these lawyers have expensive overheads they try to charge clients the most money. Antonio doesn't work that way. He charged a reasonable flat fee and promised her she would be divorced in less than 30 days.
The end result? Just look at her review that she left for Antonio on Avvo's website:
I am very happy that I hired Mr.Jimenez. He was extremely professional, straight to the point and fast.
My husband and I both agreed to get divorced, we do not have kids in common and were not fighting over anything material. So I went to lawyer xxxxx who promised me she will divorce me in less than a month, but more than 4 months and $3,300 later and after feeling my case was being complicated so she can get more money out of me; I looked up in AVVO, saw the reviews and called Mr. Jimenez's office.
Was so impressed he called me from his personal phone and that the lawyer was communicating directly with me, not [through] paralegals...he answered all my questions and told me he'll get me divorced in less than a month with a different strategy. Gave me a flat fee! (always look for that) and also payment plan.
And indeed in less than one moth I was officially divorced.
Excellent service, prompt communication and knowledge - highly recommend Mr. Jimenez.
Antonio was hired by the wife who wanted to file for divorce in Miami. The main problem with the case was that the husband was missing in action. They had separated several years ago and she had not heard from him since. Mr. Jimenez filed the divorce pleadings in family court and started the service of process. You can't get divorced unless there is a proper service. Meaning the person you want to divorce from has to be on notice that you want a divorce. After attempting without success of obtaining service of process via personal or constructive service at the husband's last known address, he was able to achieve service of process via publication, which for divorces in Florida it is allowed under Chapter 49 of the Florida Statutes (49.021). After service and waiting the required time period for the husband's Answer to the Petition, Mr. Jimenez then filed a Motion for Default becuase the answer was never filed. The default was granted, and the case was then set for a final hearing. At the final hearing the divorce was granted and the client is finally divorced from a man she has not seen in many years and can move on with her life.
30 YEAR MARRIAGE WITHOUT PERMANENT ALIMONY
Husband hired Antonio after the end of a 30 year marriage. Any marriage over 17 years is considered long-term and permanent alimony is a real factor in these marriages. After a 10 hour mediation session, Antonio was able to save the Husband from paying the Wife permanent alimony for the rest of her life. She also agreed to pay $60k towards the marital debt. The compromise from the Husband was that she kept the home and the current mortgage but he walked without paying her monthly for the remainder of his life. This couple was divorced in less than 6 months thanks to Antonio's relentless pursuit of trying to settle cases as quickly as possible without the ongoing constant expense of litigation that only benefits the lawyer's pockets and not the families.
