Going through a child custody battle is nothing short of terrifying. For me the bad luck just seemed to keep pouring in strong. From my sons father refusing to pay child support to him disappearing for several years and popping back up demanding more time with our son.
Jeff was behind me every step of the way. He is a genuine and kind person and when it comes to fighting for the safety of your children that is exactly what you need, someone who really cares. Jeff's concern for my circumstance made this nightmare of a situation have light at the end of the tunnel. I could ALWAYS reach him and his office staff, he quickly returned every email and phone call no matter how little or big my question was. In the court room he represented me with so much professionalism and knowledge. He knew my case inside and out. I would also like to note that aside from taking on my case and helping me be awarded the courts approval he also had to clear up a multitude of errors made by the law firm I used prior.

I hired Jeff after my previous law firm Rossway-Swan pulled out on me literally one week before my divorce hearing. With next to no time to prepare, he pulled a miracle out of his hat. He was well spoken at trial. He and his paralegal, Korrie Matthews, knew more about my case in the one week they had it than my previous firm did in the entire year they had it, and they appeared to genuinely care more about the outcome. His communications are prompt and accurate, which was very refreshing to me after dealing with Rossway's paralegal. He's returned calls during his lunchbreaks, after hours, always promptly and as he promised. He's created legal documents for me in a timely fashion, even under pressure of other commitments. He's incredibly intelligent and diligent. He is also honorable and fair. I highly recommend Jeff Battista if you need to get the job done right the first time.

Divorcing one's spouse is one of the most personal and trying thing you may ever do. I could not have selected a more accomplished, compassionate attorney than Jeff Battista. From my first numb days of having no idea what I would do or where I would go, Jeff was there with an informed but sympathetic guiding hand. He is beyond personable and even in the most difficult and emotional time, he can help you stay focused on the ultimate goal. For me, that was a divorce that provided a new, healthy, and safe environment for me and my two children. He surprised me in court on more than one occasion, always intercepting falsities and questioning everything. His knowledge of Florida divorce law is impeccable. Every time I walked out of the courtroom, I felt relief. It also must be said, that his staff and paralegal (Korie) are some of the most understanding and supportive professionals you may ever come across. Jeff and his staff have given me more than I can write in 4000 characters or less. Well, I suppose I can express to you one last thing; it sure felt good walking away a victor.

Nobody ever expects that they will get divorced. I never thought it would happen to me. I was lucky enough to be referred to Mr. Battista by a good friend who knew of the firms reputation. Mr. Battista talked of how a good lawyer "adds value" to your case. I never knew what that meant until we started going through the process. What he meant was, he would help me bear the burden. If I heard something from a friend that sounded bad, I could call him or email him and get an immediate response. I felt better right away. He knew what to argue to save me big money. He told me what I should consider when I was faced with certain decisions. Everything turned out great, life moved on as he said it would, and I am so thankful.

The important thing to me in my divorce was knowing what was going on. The staff of this firm were always available to me and the lawyer answered all of my questions. So comforting.

My brother was arrest about a year ago. We hired another lawyer in town who wasn't doing his job, wasn't getting back to us, doing nothing really. It was recommended to us to go see Mr. Battista, and he did an incredibly good job keeping us informed and eventually getting all charges dropped. .

Although I was never expecting it would happen, I found myself in the middle of a divorce a few years ago. I took a shot at representing myself and even tried one of those paralegal services but it just wasn't working. I had heard good things about Mr. Battista and his firm and so I gave them a call. It was the best decision I ever made. He has a fantastic staff that always keeps you up to date about what is going on with your case, and he made himself available to me anytime I needed him. As much as I hate to admit that I needed it, he even called me on Saturday mornings when things came up as an emergency. Divorce is tricky because there are times when its best to fight and there are times when its best to try and get along. Battista knew when it was best to do both. Alot of the mistakes I was making was due to the fact that I was emotional. Battista helped me see through all the emotional stuff, and really looked out for what was in my own best interest. I really owe him for that. Its a tough thing to go through, but Menz & Battista really made it so I could get back on my feet and put my life back together and I will always owe them for that.
