Top Notch Attention - A Real Pro

Cody successfully fought for my wife and I in a case against a former landlord, who unjustly withheld a significant portion of our security deposit. His attention to detail, time invested in the case and overall efforts all stood out to us throughout the case and I was impressed with both his courtroom stature and his diligence behind the scenes. If the need ever arises for me to seek legal representation again, Cody will absolutely be my first call. He has my utmost confidence and highest endorsement.

Messy custody battle.

Mr.Emerson for lack of a better phrase held my hand through my entire custody process. I was very busy with other personal matters during the custody procedures, but my case never missed a beat due to Mr. Emersons diligence. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in any of his areas of expertise. Mr. Emersons rates were also fantastic when I compared a few different lawyers.

A. Cody Emerson

My Emerson has been the best attorney I have ever had any dealings with. He has been very patient and attentive even though my case was not a great big one and not much compensation for him. It was a renter-landlord-foreclosure situation and I was caught in the middle. He still gave me the the best legal advice and the best legal service I have ever received. I just can't praise him enough. I am elder, very confused and worried about the case and he repeated explanations many times without the slightest hint of impatience or annoyance. I had gotten conflicting information from agencies, even the legal aid agencies for elders. To say that he is exceedingly patient and courteous is an understatement. I have already recommended Mr Emerson to many family members and friends, who have not had such good service or outcomes! I give an enthusiastic thumbs up!

Attorney A. Cody Emerson knows what he is talking about. He is right up front with advice and information about my situation. He is willing to assist with legal problems and direction on what to do. I would recommend him for Legal assistance.

- Gaetano

Great first impression!

So far, hiring Cody to evict non-paying tenants from my home has been a smart decision. I wanted to give him a pre-review of my experience with him so far because I can see that he far exceeds my expectations. He is caring, kind and even came to my home because I wasn't feeling well enough to go to his office! My husband and I may very well hire him for an entirely different situation. I have a feeling already that we will enjoy a long professional relationship with Cody and we'll be sure to recommend him to friends and relatives.

- Tammy Reiter

Success Story

We had the pleasure of working with Cody in order to get out of our rental home lease agreement with the property management company. With Cody's guidance and assistance we were successful at breaking the lease and receiving our deposit back in full! I would highly recommend him!

Thanks for everything, Cody!

I hired Cody to handle my divorce case last 2014. I consulted 3 lawyers before him but to my disappointment, either they don't know what to do or they don't want to handle cases that involve international correspondence/ processing since my ex-husband is in the Philippines. But when I consulted Cody, he already know right away what to do to start the process. He is very knowledgeable in his field and knows every corners of our law. He is very patient and perseverant researching on things he needed to know to facilitate international processing. He is also very professional, nice, and sensitive to his client's needs. I will surely use his services again if I would need a lawyer again... I just hope it's NOT gonna be for another divorce! Lol!.. Thanks for everything, Cody!.. More power to you!

Glad to know this incase I need a lawyer! Well done! Congrats to the Emerson Family!

- Gina Marie

Thank you Cody!

It was the first time I had ever been "forced" to hire an attorney to collect a past due debt. I had no idea what lay ahead. I had met Cody as he was finishing up at FSU, so I called him. We sat down and came up with a plan. Walking out of that first meeting I knew I had hired the right person. He made me feel confident and comfortable and is a very compassionate person. That tribute comes thru in his profession. Cody is and will be my attorney should the need arise again. I have recommended Cody to several friends and family members. Thank you Cody!

Could Have Been A Nightmare

Mr. Emerson guided my through a messy custody case. He handled every aspect of my case from custody to child support. The entire process could have been a nightmare, but Mr. Emerson was on top of every date and continually reminding me of paperwork and such on my end. If you want an attorney very attentive to your case as well as yourself I would highly Recomended Mr.Emerson.

- Deanah Atchison

I highly recommend him

Cody represented me through my divorce and he was very professional and supportive throughout the process and I highly recommend him.


Such a good moral man!

Mr Valentine is such a good moral man! He is fair and keeps you on track and focused on the goal. We are not done with the final custody arrangements and our case is complex. He has heard me cry several times and just has this amazing way to keep me back on track! You will not be disappointed or stirred wrong and he WILL watch out for the best interest of your child every step of the way. He has a peaceful manner but is not afraid to call someone out on their behaviors and any injustices occurring. He believed me and trusted me when the other parent was falsely accusing me of all kinds of craziness. I had to fire my old attorney for her incompetency. Mr Valentine knows what he is doing! And through this whole experience he is looking out for the best possible outcome for an imperfect situation he truly wants what’s best for the whole family!

- Jennifer Hicks

I’d highly recommend these attorneys!

- Rayna Tanis

Great Lawyer!

I highly recommend Bob Valentine’s representation to anyone in need of a sharp divorce attorney. I shopped around and met with several well known attorneys before choosing Bob who came recommended by a friend. He handled my case with outstanding responsiveness, competence and complete professionalism. He was the calm, cool voice on the end of the telephone when my troubles began with my divorce. Whenever things got tough and I became upset regarding the case, Bob stepped in to calm, empathize, answer questions, and got me the deal that gave me my life back. I highly recommend his professional services and will always be thankful for the way he handled my case. Thanks for everything Bob!

My friend and I contacted Mr Valentine for a legal issue in Florida. We are both residents of CA and were clueless to Forida Law. How we came about Mr. Valentine was through a Google Search, so one can say a cold call.It was evident on our first call to Mr. Valentine we to look no futher. He listened and took his time on telephonic call to explain Florida Law and what the next steps would to help resolve our situation. After our ended, he immediatly went to work on our case. Within, a month, our issue was resolved and ended.Mr. Valentine, was assertive, attentive and always availble to answer questions or concerns. Something you don't find to happen often once one retains an attorney.Above and Beyond.

Highly Recommended!

We hired Attorney Valentine after he was highly recommended by a family friend. We worked with Attorney Valentine for 18 months on our Supplemental Modification Case and during those 18 months he treated us with dignity and respect and showed that he truly cares about his clients and in the end wants what is best for his clients and their family. Attorney Valentine is an experienced knowledgeable and patient lawyer; one of the many things that we respect him for is his honesty. He never once set us up with high expectations, he was always up front with us letting us know every direction our case could end up going. His priority was clear in doing what was best for our family, which he did. Attorney Valentine was a tremendous help to our family and we are grateful.

Great consulting

We had a question about our landlord/ tenant relationship and were looking everywhere for a consultation. People were charging hundreds of dollars just to hear our case. Mr. Valenine took time out of his schedule and we had a really reassuring and knowledgeable conversation, and made himself very available. Not sure yet how things will turn out, but we feel confident that Mr. Valentine would be the person to advocate for us.

Great Divorce Attorney - Cares About His Clients

Attorney Valentine handled my divorce for me from start to finish. I'd heard so many bad things about attorneys that I was wary in even hiring one to help me through my case, but right from the first meeting I knew that Bob was an attorney who actually cared about his clients and wouldn't steer me wrong. He did a great job in helping to negotiate a parenting plan, including shared custody of my kids, got me everything that I should have gotten as far as marital assets were concerned, and made sure that the alimony and child support were right where they should be. We didn't have to go to trial because we reached a settlement, but I'm confident that Bob would have been as prepared and professional at trial as he was during each step of my case.I've recommended him to my friends and would recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Valentine was very professional, courteous, and seemed to really care about me as a person while I was going through this difficult time. He is very knowledgeable concerning family law and responded quickly to all types of correspondence. He made me feel at ease during the process. I would highly recommend Mr. Valentine to anyone going through a divorce.

- Kelly Bain

Professional & On point

I retained Mr. Valentine in the 11th hour of my custody case. He's a great listener and very professional in all aspects of litigation. Mr. Valentine excelled in remembering dates, times and discrepancies in OC's testimony. He was very direct, yet polite in his cross-examination. Perfectly presented the facts and well versed in the laws and statutes pertaining to Florida Family Law. Mr. Valentine also allowed me to be hands-on, providing input and minor direction during my case. His court-room appears is well put together and organized. Again, Bob is a great listener and patient person. He genuinely cares about his clients. I believe I had solid representation by Mr. Robert Valentine.

- Tim

Very helpful

I have not yet hired any attorney, however, speaking with Mr. Valentine helped me understand what will happen when we are able to go through the process. He took a few moments of his time to explain answers to my questions and I am so thankful.

Knowledge is power! You need to call Mr. Valentine today!

I just had a free consultation with Mr. Valentin, He was able to explain the good and bad of my case with knowledge and options. I like the fact he was up front with my cases issues vs telling me what I wanted to hear. I feel it is better to be up front like he was and come up with a plan like he did. I feel very comfortable with Mr. Valentin and his abilities. I will be retaining Mr. Valentine for his legal services and if you are smart you should as well.

- Ronald

Mr. Valentine is an attorney that takes a case to heart. Through out my entire time with him I never once questioned what was going to happen next.
