Mr. Bickman took over my divorce case and helped tremendously in filing in a timely manner and provided me with assistance not only with all the legal aspects of it but providing also great psychological support. He's been 24/7 available for me to answer all my questions and reassured me anytime I would get worried about the final outcome. My divorce was taken care of swiftly and I couldn't expect a better result in terms of custody rights for my daughter and all other aspects of it.
I will be forever thankful to Mr. Bickman, great lawyer with great sense of humanity.

I contacted Josh initially for a consultation to ask his advice on a divorce filing that had gone terribly wrong. I had entered into a simple dissolution of marriage and used a document prepare individual to take care of the paperwork thinking that it was something that could be handled easily. This women turned out to be a scam artist and not only did not do what she was paid too, she up and moved to a different state with out telling me and months went by thinking my divorce was being handled. When I finally realized, I contacted Josh to have him look into my case as I was moving to a different state and needed to have this drawn out divorce handled in a timely manner. Josh pulled a miracle, he was able to conduct the due diligence and processes that the document prepare women completely screwed up and convinced the judge to grant me a default and final hearing within one week of each other. Based upon the amount of time that had passed, this was a very small chance of occurring but Josh made it happen. He was up front with me the entire time about the process and we were able to negotiate a fair and justifiable price for his services. He was extremely professional and made me feel the entire time that he was committed to representing my interests. I was able to wrap up a divorce filing that had been dragged out for over a year and move on with my life and Josh got this done before my move which was absolutely spectacular and life saving. If your in a jam, Josh Bickman will get you out!

Joshua was my guiding light through a very ugly divorce. He was always accessible, listened when I was upset, and gave excellent and cost-effective advice. He helped me understand when it was best not to take action in situations where it would have been a waste of time or money, or make me appear petty in front of the Judge who would ultimately be signing off on the divorce, whether through trial or settlement. He did not write opposing counsel meaningless letters just to raise my bill. Joshua helped me stay strong when I was ready to cave. The end of my divorce was much more profitable for me had I not considered his advice. Every step that he took, and every recommendation that he gave, had both me and my minor child in mind. I highly recommend Joshua Bickman.

Joshua Bickman really helped me get everything that was important to me in my case. Being a man the system is usually built against us and almost always pro-mother. When I sat with him I was nervous because divorce is not easy and I was being threatened by the mother that she was going to take my daughter and I was only going to see her on her terms and on a limited basis. I gave Mr. Bickman all the information about my case and what I wanted. As close to 50% custody, and not lose my 401K and that was about it as everything else is replaceable. Our case was sent for mediation since we were so far apart and could not come to an understanding. At mediation Mr. Bickman said let me mange the room, trust in me and I'll get you what we discussed. That he did, he controlled the room and the entire flow of the conversation, he discussed each point of contention with a purpose and a plan. Mr. Bickman spoke in a specific order in order to get exactly what I asked for. In the end I have 47% custody per year, and my 401K. He told me from the day I met him exactly what to expect and how things were going to happen. It has been over 5 years since my divorce, I still call Mr. Bickman and he also calls me to check in and see how my daughter and I are doing. I can tell that Mr. Bickman genuinely cares about me. I hope nobody ever has to go through divorce as it is not pleasant, but if you do I would recommend Joshua Bickman as he will guide you through the process, be straight forward and honest.

Mr. Bickman helped me with my complicated international divorce. Mr. Bickman's knowledge and experience helped me navigate the complex procedures and requirements of Florida and International law. I owe Mr. Bickman a huge debt of gratitude for getting me great results and peace in my life. He is a class act and treated me and everyone else involved in my case with respect and dignity, he really cares. His attention to detail and preparation throughout the process was impressive. I could tell he could be very aggressive if he needed to but my case required a gentler approach which makes him a great negotiator. I highly recommend Mr. Bickman if you are looking for a highly qualified, intelligent and kind hearted divorce and family lawyer.

I hired Mr. Bickman to handle my highly contested divorce in 2015. My case was extremely complicated and required Mr. Bickman to be very detail oriented. I have three children all under the age of 10. My husband and I had a substantial marital estate. My husband and I have a very toxic situation which required Mr. Bickman to help us work through hostility and tension on both sides which he was excellent at handling. Mr. Bickman's patience, kindness and compassion throughout every step of the divorce process made me feel so safe and takien care of. When it came time to trying the case Mr. Bickman was second to none with his preparation and organization prior to trial. During the trial he handled the direct examination and cross-examination of over a dozen witnesses magnificently. At the end of the day the results are what matter most and Mr. Bickman's efforts were what got me the results I wanted and more. Me and my children are forever indebted to Mr. Bickman for his kindness and superior lawyering skills.

Joshua is a straightforward and intelligent lawyer that genuinely cares about securing a safe, emotionally supportive, and financially sound future for me and my children. After struggling to make ends meet in Miami for 10 months as a single mother receiving no financial support from my estranged husband, Joshua secured a desperately needed relocation order allowing my children and I to move and enjoy a much higher quality of life. Joshua continues to fight for us, always making the needs of my children his top priority. With his help, I have emerged from a traumatic life event stronger and happier than I have been in many years. I would highly recommend him to others in need of competent legal representation.

I hired Joshua Bickman in April of 2015. I am following the Avvo review guidelines to explain what Attorney Bickman Failed to Do:
Failed to be organized. He asked me several times for financial items that I had already sent.
Failed to be compassionate. I am overwhelmed by the divorce legal process and have many questions. Mr Bickman would just tell me to " Be Quiet" instead of addressing my concerns.
Failed to articulate a convincing argument during mediation. I have a pre-nup with a clause that should have worked as a bargining chip. Mr Bickman failed to use it in our favor.
Failed to show up for a meeting. We had twice confirmed a strategy session meeting to go over what we would ask for or be willing to give in mediation. Mr Bickman did not show up! I was was there by myself with a blank notepad, heartbroken.
Failed to read the judges memo or order regarding the court fee for mediation. Instead of starting mediation, we used up valuable time (mediation has a strict time limit) to leave the court house and go to a store to buy a new money order. This made us look very unprofessional to the mediator and opposing counsel.
My feeling is Mr Bickman relied on past experience to just coast by, instead of spending the time necessary to be well prepared on an individual case basis. I was very disappointed with Attorney Joshua Bickman.

I hired Mr. Bickman to represent me in my highly contested divorce. His knowledge of the law and courtroom skills were excellent. he was always available by phone and text. Mr. Bickman charges a fair price considering how hard he worked for me. I will forever be indebted to Mr. Bickman for helping me navigate the most difficult time of my life and for getting me the results I deserved.

Mr. Bickman took me for a fool. He keeping my Divorce case open for stupid reasons to get money from me. Then to my final Divorce hearing there was no MSA (Martial Settlement Agreement). Now 6 months later my ex-husband is taking me to court again for modification since Mr. Bickman did nothing correctly! More money I have to spend on another attorney now. A divorce that should of been less than $3,000 is now costing me over $7,000.
