Tampa Family Attorney

Legal Representation Since 1988 | AV* Rated Attorney

Family law and divorce can touch on many areas of your life. Perhaps one income that supported two adults and children very nicely is not enough to support two households. Perhaps a vacation home and primary residence have changed in value — what do you do? Your existing will may list your spouse as the only beneficiary — but how do you leave your assets to your children if they are minors?

There are many considerations which come into play during a divorce. Mark S. Howard is a Tampa family lawyer and AV* rated attorney who has the experience and the skill to handle any divorce related issue — no matter the complexity.

Tampa/St. Petersburg Domestic Violence Lawyer

Spousal abuse or domestic assault can result in not only a domestic violence injunction (DVI) or protection order, but can also result in dependency actions brought by the Florida Department of Children and Families (FDCF). At our law firm we represent either side of this issue. We can defend your DVI charge and work to protect your child custody privileges. We can also handle post-divorce modifications for those who are the victims of domestic violence.

We do not judge. We represent and protect.
