Tampa Board Certified Family Law Attorney
We solve problems by zealously advocating for our clients at every stage of the process
One of the most difficult and stressful experiences that a person can go through in life is the litigation of a divorce or other family law matter. Whether you are facing a divorce, paternity, or other family law action, it is most likely a very challenging time for you.
No two family law cases are alike. Every family is different and each family law matter presents its own unique set of facts and circumstances. That is why you need an expert divorce attorney and family law attorney in Tampa who is a Board Certified Specialist in Marital & Family Law by the Florida Bar, and who understands the very serious, sensitive, and personal nature of your situation.
Sometimes people involved in family law litigation need an attorney because they have serious communication problems with the other party or the other party is making unreasonable demands, rendering it impossible to get their divorce, paternity, or other family law matter resolved fairly and amicably.
When you need a divorce attorney or family law attorney, the team you choose to represent you is a very important decision. Your interests must be represented by an experienced and skilled family law attorney who understands that your situation is unique, will vigorously advocate for your rights, and aggressively pursue the outcome that you want and deserve.
Scott Davis has been designated as a Board Certified Specialist in Marital and Family Law by the Florida Bar since 2010. Board Certified attorneys are the only attorneys allowed to identify themselves as “Florida Bar Board Certified,” “specialists,” or “experts” in their area of practice. Certification is the highest level of evaluation by the Florida Bar of the competency and experience of an attorney. Mr. Davis is also recognized as an AV Preeminent attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, a testament to the fact that his peers in the community rank him at the highest level of professional excellence. Only attorneys with the highest ethical standards and professional ability receive a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating of AV. Most recently, Mr. Davis was designated as a "Top Rated Divorce Lawyer" by Super Lawyers, a prestegious rating service listing outstanding attorneys who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and personal achievement.
Depending on the facts and circumstances, divorce cases can involve the issues of a Parenting Plan and time-sharing schedule (formerly known as child custody), relocation of a child or children, equitable distribution of assets and liabilities (property division), alimony (spousal support), child support, and claims for attorney's fees, costs, and suit money. Paternity actions are appropriate when the parties were never married but have minor children in common, and can involve the issues of biological paternity, the creation of a Parenting Plan and time-sharing schedule, child support, and claims for attorney's fees, costs, and suit money.
