A unique perspective to solving marital and family law issues
The named partners at the law firm of Cortes Hodz Family Law & Mediation, P.A., Vivian Cortes Hodz and Lawrence Jacob Hodz, are a husband-wife team of attorneys who work together on solving marital and family law matters for Tampa families, including divorce, child custody, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, domestic violence and more. The two first met in law school and pursued different legal paths initially. Lawrence founded the Marital and Family Law Department as an associate attorney at a Tampa law firm before joining forces with his wife in her law firm and launching a family law and mediation practice. Vivian, meanwhile, has devoted her entire career to the practice of family law. In addition to her work advocating for her clients as a practicing family law attorney, Vivian is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator.
As parents, professionals and business owners who are both partners in law and partners in life, Lawrence and Vivian understand the challenges families face as they go through difficult times, as well as the strength and importance of family ties that continue to bind families even after the conclusion of a divorce or child custody dispute. That’s why you’ll find us focused on pre-suit mediation and collaborative divorce, and motivated to help you obtain an amicable divorce whenever possible. We also understand that a collaborative approach does not work in every situation, and we adapt as needed. Our team handles both uncontested and contested Florida divorces, and we are well-prepared to represent your interests in the areas of child custody, child support, alimony, and the property division in your divorce.
Our comprehensive family law practice is here for you post-divorce as well, including parental relocations, modifications and enforcement of court orders.
