Excellent divorce lawyer
I was looking for a lawyer that could help settle my divorce without having to go through all the headaches that you hear others have endured. Brenda London was referred to me and I'm so thankful I contacted her. We had our first meeting not long after I had called her office. She really listened to what I wanted and was sensitive to my needs. Papers were filed and we were able to settle quickly and efficiently. Diana followed through and had my final divorce papers signed in a vey timely manner. Her paralegal Diana was of great assistance as well. I am very satisfied with my results and would highly recommend hiring Brenda London to anyone that is in need.

Exceptional Representation
I am so pleased that I was represented by Brenda as she fulfilled the myriad of roles that were necessary during my lengthy and taxing divorce. Up against a very angry and elusive spouse who was represented by a challenging and insufficient attorney, she successfully maneuvered through the many fire pits, erupting volcanos, and quick sand ponds that would suddenly appear. Her professionalism, grace and eloquence are the perfect combination. I don't think with any other attorney, including her exceptional Paralegal Diana, I would have kept my sanity or succeeded as much as I did. They truly represent your best interests across the board. I highly recommend Brenda and have already sent her 3 new clients due to my recommendations.

Very Grateful
Most importantly I need to thank Brenda and her assistant Diana for helping me through the most difficult year of my life. The Aiken Family Law Firm was recommended to me by a friend and I must say that I am very fortunate. Divorce can be a very difficult situation for all parties involved and Brenda along with the Aiken team were fantastic. I was very harsh on Brenda and Diana at times and through it all they kept a smile and remained focused on taking care of my needs. There are only so many issues that are within the attorney's control and in my case I was dealing with a very difficult spouse. This was very frustrating for me but through it all Brenda was very professional and polite. I feel that Brenda and Diana went above of beyond to make sure my needs were fulfilled. Although Brenda has multiple clients with multiple issues she made me feel like I was the only one. I highly recommend Brenda as she truly loves what she does and puts her clients best interest first.

Forever grateful for Brenda's expertise and support
In what is a highly emotional and difficult time, Brenda and team provided clarity and always encouraged me to focus on my (very young) children, my well-being, and the long-term impact of decisions being made. As a result, I have a fair, solid, long-term plan. Efficient process, fair cost structure. Would absolutely recommend Brenda.

Knowledgeable,organized and caring.
Brenda London and staff were awesome to work with. I found them to be some of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. From start to finish Brenda was right by my side guiding me every step of the way. I was able to not be as anxious with my divorce because I knew I was in good hands. Brenda's assistant Diana was also a joy to work with and very organized. I would recommend Brenda London to everyone. Thank you for taking such great care of me.

Excellent - Competent and Caring Professional
I have worked with Brenda Lee London for may years as a colleage in the collaborative divorce process. Brenda has a strong track record with both peers and clients. She is competent in both the law and in family dynamics. Her dedication to her clients and the field does not go unnoticed. She is heavily involved in making Central Florida a better place through her involvement with Guardian Ad Litem and through worthy community projects. Many former clients have said that they believe that Brenda is one of the best attorneys in Central Florida. I agree. She takes great pride in her ability to provide unique and tailored legal services to each of her clients. In a world where clients wonder if they are "just a number" and if they will have an attorney who pays attention to what they and their families need, Brenda is the attorney who will never disappoint. I would hire her without hesitation!

Best Lawyer to Hire to Protect Your family
I am grateful to have retained Brenda London as the attorney in my divorce case. After 16 years of marriage my then husband and I were divorcing, and we had three children to consider. Brenda was recommended to me by a friend as one of the top family law attorneys in our community. I had considered another lawyer but chose Brenda. Not only is she very professional and knowledgeable, but she is kind and caring as well. Throughout the few months until my divorce became final she kept me constantly informed, gave me good sound advice, laid out my options for me, and was always considerate about her time and the financial consequences of my divorce. Throughout the collaborative process I always felt that she had my family’s best interests at heart. I highly recommend Brenda London as the best lawyer you can hire to protect your family!

So THANKFUL for Brenda!
I am so thankful my research led me to Brenda and Collaborative Law! I was a very nervous mother of three, embarking on a journey that I had so many questions about. Brenda explained how the process would work, and her fees were clearly stated. We met frequently (either in person, phone or email) and she was always available for me. She was always prompt, and if she felt we needed to go over something during a group meeting, she very professionally asked that we all took a break so that she could guide me on issues. We had a home to sell, a military retirement to split, money markets, etc., and she always knew how to handle the situation. If at anytime she wasn't 100% sure, she held off until she was able to research the issue a little more. She never talked "at" me, she always talked to me and made sure I was comfortable. For a bad situation of a divorce, she made it so much easier!
