  • Rob, I wanted to say thank you for all your efforts in getting this agreement settled.

  • Paula, my husband and I sat down to talk things out and after tears and being completely honest with each other, we have decided we both do not want a divorce. I'm not sure how often this happens but I guess it took us to come to this point to realize that we really do love each other and never want to be apart. There will not be any more work needed from your law firm. I must say, you and Christian have been exemplary and I really appreciate you. If I ever have a friend who's going through a divorce, you will be the only name for me to recommend.

  • I wanted to thank you for your excellent service while assisting my wife and I through the most difficult time in our life. I want you to know that when I first came to your office Mr. Givens assured me that he was placing my needs in very good hands. He was correct because we are in a much better place because of your efforts. You fulfilled Mr. Givens promise. Please extend my appreciation to Arely for her professional attention and service to the many details. My hope is that I never need this type of service again but rest assured that if I do you would be the first to call.

  • Rob, I have a friend in Palm Beach County in need of a family law attorney. Know anyone down here with the same amount of class, ethics and thoughtfulness and ability to execute as you?

  • If you want the best, you want Stann Givens. Stann is an intellectually gifted, highly motivated, knowledgeable attorney. He has the experience that is necessary to get the job done. Stann’s relentless dedication to his principles and values is evident in everything he does. In my case with a complicated, lengthy divorce, Stann displayed great patience and quiet demeanor. When mediation occurred he was truly a “master negotiator.”

  • I want to share my appreciation for the ways which you and Esther are handling my unusual divorce case. Even though my particular case is neither high profile nor a significant source of revenue for you and your firm, you always respond immediately to my communications, give great detail to the situation, and make me feel that my case-file is always on top. For these reasons, and more, I feel exceptionally fortunate having been referred to you. Thanks for being a genuine professional.

Case Results

  • Family Law Case - Child Custody

    Givens Givens Sparks trial attorney, Kelly Candela, successfully litigated a family law case in which a child was nearly removed from her mother’s custody and given to the child’s alleged father, although the father had not yet established paternity. Candela filed a written response on behalf of her client (the mother) alleging fraud by the father and had the pick-up order set aside before custody was transferred to the father. The practical result was to allow the mother and child stay in their home state (not Florida) pending the resolution of the case. The Court agreed and granted Candela’s client custody.

  • Family Law Case - Child Custody

    Givens Givens Sparks trial attorney, Kelly Candela, successfully litigated a family law case in which her client filed a Petition to Establish Paternity, and the mother was served. After being served, the mother fled the state with the child. Candela filed an Emergency Motion for the immediate return of the child, and at that hearing, which was granted on an emergency basis, the mother was forced to turn the child over to the father, giving the father sole custody of the child pending the ultimate resolution of the case.

  • Family Law Case - Relocation

    Givens Givens Sparks trial attorney, Kelly Candela, successfully litigated a family law case in which her client (the father) accused his child’s mother of relocating the child out of state without the consent of the child’s father. Candela was able to obtain a court order to return the child to the state of Florida and to remain in her client’s care while establishing permanent custody and timesharing plans. After Candela’s successful litigation of the case, the Court ruled that the mother’s Petition for Relocation was denied, and that the child shall live primarily with Candela’s client in Florida, with summer and school break schedules allotted to the mother.

  • Family Law Case - Timesharing Violation

    Givens Givens Sparks trial attorney, Kelly Candela, successfully litigated a family law case in which her client was accused of violating a timesharing schedule agreed upon by both parental parties at the time the couple was divorced. The client’s child’s mother claimed that Candela’s client did not return the child for holiday timesharing at both Christmas and Easter. Candela had sent formal correspondence to the child’s mother regarding the dispute over the interpretation of the timesharing schedule, and when she did not agree, the father kept the child. The Court agreed with Candela’s interpretation of the timesharing schedule and found that her client was not in contempt for either holiday.

  • Family Law Case - Unilateral Medical-Related Decisions

    Givens Givens Sparks trial attorney, Kelly Candela, successfully litigated a family law case in which she filed a Motion for Contempt on behalf of her client against the mother of his child for making unilateral medical-related decisions for the minor child without his knowledge. The Court agreed that the mother was in violation of the final judgment of their dissolution of marriage and held her in indirect civil contempt. The Court also ordered that the treatment in question cease immediately and that the mother be solely responsible for any and all costs related to that treatment. Furthermore, the Court ordered that the mother was not to make any unilateral decisions in the future and was to notify the father of any future appointments so that he could be present either over the phone or in person.
