Going through a custody case judge ruled in favor of mother for temporary custody. However we met for a visitation at a fast food place sat inside and i recorded the audio conversation we had. My lawyer said she would look up case law about recording in a public place in Florida. This recording could honestly save my child's life. I don't see how someone could expect privacy at a fast food place. Could anybody provide case law to say it would be legal in Florida?

You cannot record her - it is not admissible and you could subject yourself to criminal consequences. See if your attorney can find any case law to the contrary, follow your attorney's advice; however, until such time as she finds case law, do not share that recording.

I agree with my colleagues. It's inadmissible and you've exposed yourself to possible criminal charges. Let your attorney do her job and advise you about the recording.
