FOUNDED BY ERNESTO CESPEDES, ESQUIRE.
Allow me to introduce myself, I am a trilingual (English, Spanish and Portuguese) attorney and Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil Mediator with 20 years of legal experience.
I am not a psychologist, licensed social worker or marriage counselor. What distinguishes me and my service from all other licensed social workers, psychologist, divorce coaches and marriage counselors in the state of Florida, is that I have the distinct advantage of approaching your issues while wearing 4 hats simultaneously:
- A family law attorney with 20 years experience.
- A mediator for the last 14 years.
I personally relate to you and your family in your own language, with an understanding of your culture.
- I have experienced divorce myself as a client and father.
“Coming together is a beginning;
keeping together is progress;
working together is success.
Even though as an attorney I knew what to expect, it was no less difficult or stressful. It was because of my own divorce, that I began representing divorce clients. I promised myself that I would treat people going through a divorce with integrity, dignity, understanding and compassion.
Divorce can take a toll on your personal and professional life. Had I known back when I started my divorce process what I know now, outcomes could have been very different.
It is with this knowledge and compassion that I approach every client in providing the best assistance and information to help my client mitigate the myriad of feelings experienced prior to, during and post-divorce. It’s never easy no matter where you stand, especially if there are children of the marriage.
WHEN THE SUPPORT OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY IS NOT ENOUGH.
You cannot underestimate the value of supporting friends and family, however, there are times when friends and family although well-meaning, cannot or do not know how to help you through this painful moment in your life.
It is advisable to seek the counseling of an experienced and neutral person such as myself with a unique understanding of the process, as well as both present and future challenges you will encounter as time passes.
I will help you set and achieve goals both personally and professionally, as well as provide guidance prior to filing for divorce, during your divorce and after your divorce. I am the person that will walk the path with you along your side while providing sensible, reasonable and practical solutions to your desired goals. You are not alone!
