Social Media Testimonials
Joryn was simply amazing. Her supporting, consistent, honest, and most importantly – productive – approach was exactly what I needed to get through the process. A court trial was imminent if we did not have a successful mediation (the third one!), and no other attorney was able to focus the entire team like Joryn. Her experience, ‘bed-side manner,’ and direction was simply invaluable.
Joryn and her staff were nothing but fabulous during my collaborative divorce. I could definitely go on and on about how great they were during this time in my life, I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better attorney to represent me. Thank you, Mrs Jenkins and staff, for making this as smooth as possible for me.
Joryn takes the time to sit and listen to everything you have to say. I like the fact that she is VERY knowledgeable. What she doesn’t know, she comes right out and tells you. Her demeanor is very professional.
In court, you can tell she is very confident. I feel confident I am in the best hands I can be in, in the situation at hand. I used to be a paralegal, so knew a little about her. When my husband and I were looking for an attorney to represent us and were looking on the internet. As soon as I saw her name, I felt she was the one I needed. My case is still ongoing, but I feel hopeful that the outcome with be in my favor with Joryn on my side.
I met Joryn Jenkins in 2006. I was going through a highly stressful custody battle. My previous attorney was nowhere near as experienced as Joryn. It has now been over six years I have needed her legal representation due to a very litigious divorce. She was very competent and able to take over my case with a very professional approach. She always looked out for my best interests, as well as those of my child! She has always steered me in the best direction, offering me ideas about possible settlements that I could never have come up with by myself. Joryn was able to keep her eye on the forest when I was bogged down in the trees, and considered all of the facts and differing perspectives of my situation when counseling me regarding the best direction to pursue.
My ex-father-in-law was a retired brigadier general and litigated for a hobby. He is the reason my divorce had run a course of seven years. He wrote the briefs for my ex’s five different attorneys. He fired and hired the lawyers. He filed appeal after appeal, in both the district court, as well as the Florida Supreme Court.
During this unending and vexatious litigation, Joryn continued to represent me. She handled all of my appeals. She knew my case inside and out, as well as the law that could be argued. She always had case law and facts for the hearings and presented them accordingly. She was always prepared and succeeded in almost everything she did. She appeared at many lengthy hearings, beginning with a four-day divorce trial, in front of five different judges, maybe more, I’ve lost track. But she never gave up. She is tenacious and continues to persevere with me throughout this litigation, always being ethical and honest. Not only have I gotten to know Joryn as my attorney during this time, but as a person. She is always professional and her morals exceed many people in this world.
Joryn and her staff are always very helpful and considerate whenever we have needed them. We have required law services many times in the past 9 years for business and personal and have never been disappointed in this law firm.
Ms. Jenkins is both intelligent and compassionate. She truly understands what her clients are going through and she tries to assist them with creative and effective solutions to their legal issues. I highly recommend her.

Joryn excels in making one of the hardest times of your life a little easier on you and, more importantly, your family.

I am a forensic CPA that spends considerable time in family law matters. Joryn is one of my favorite attorneys because she not only represents her clients interests, but is acutely aware of the dynamics that she contributes to the divorce process. In other words, Joryn doesn’t make the case about herself – but cares about a healthy divorce where her client is not only satisfied with the near term solution, but the divorce was handled with the respect necessary for long term healing.
Joryn is a huge proponent of collaborative divorce and mediation – as well as contested divorce when other alternatives would not be effective. She will fight hard to make sure you are treated fairly and with respect – but will also be persuasive with the other party to ensure your perspective is heard and their perspective is communicated to you.

Jenkins cares about your privacy, your family and preparing you for your life without your spouse. I have worked with Atty.

Joryn is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate attorneys in the State of Florida. Her ability to handle each and every client with the level of care, respect and sympathy in any type of situation they may be in is amazing. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services!
Several years ago our hearts were just broken. After years of caring for my sweet loving in-laws the three of them passed away within 18 months of one another, unfortunately, leaving us in a serious financial crisis. As extremely difficult as it was on us financially, there was NO way we were going to stand by and NOT assist my husband’s parents and his sweet brother with Autism. For this is what family is for. Afterwards, our family attorney highly recommended we speak with Attorney Joryn Jenkins. What a blessing this really was. Other than us getting married, the best decision we ever made was to hire Attorney Joryn Jenkins, to handle our affairs. She immediately “took the bull by the horns” in handling all of our finances. Joryn and her staff have just been wonderful. To this day with much sincerity, Joryn was always available to answer our questions. This was and still is such a comfort during our grief. In closing, Joryn Jenkins is the only attorney we would ever recommend. Joryn is modestly brilliant and kind. She’ll personally return both phone and email messages and her staff is the best. You will never play phone tag with this law firm. They will assist you with courtesy and respect.

I would recommend picking up a copy of Joryn’s new book, War or Peace: Avoid the Destruction of Divorce Court. Winner of the Best Books 2014 Award, if you are thinking about a divorce. This book illustrates how to avoid the lasting effects of the destruction caused by the divorce court process. I am sure that if you read this book and still need her services, she will be the one you want to talk to.
Keep up the great work on making the lives of people you come in contact with happier every day, Joryn!!!!!!!
Whenever I was having trouble making ends meet, Ms. Jenkins would provide me with contract work. Whenever I needed a sounding board to flesh out unique or novel positions, Ms. Jenkins made herself and her keen legal mind available. And whenever Ms. Jenkins had a hearing on an especially complex or interesting motion, Ms. Jenkins would invite me to observe. It was in large part through Ms. Jenkins’ mentoring of me (which marked the beginning of a formal mentoring program) that the Family Law Inn of Court of Tampa achieved platinum status, the highest level of recognition for an American Inn of Court.
Ms. Jenkins also encouraged me to learn more about a new yet growing form of alternative dispute resolution known as collaborative family law practice. She convinced me to take training in this model and get involved with a local practice group and 501(c)(3) non-profit, Next Generation Divorce. Since then, Ms. Jenkins has been supremely supportive as I have become a leader in Tampa’s collaborative family law movement.
And Ms. Jenkins has continued to show us all what it means to give back to the community. First, she became chair of the Next Generation Divorce Pro Bono Committee, and then the HCBA Collaborative Law Section Pro Bono Committee. This provided her and I the opportunity to participate in Florida’s first pro bono interdisciplinary collaborative divorce. Now, Ms. Jenkins is chair of the Pro Bono Committee of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Florida, and she has been going around the state teaching others how to set up pro bono collaborative divorce clinics.
I no longer share space with Ms. Jenkins, but my respect for and gratitude towards her has only grown stronger. Others likely wrote about Ms. Jenkin’s legal accomplishments. Admirable as these accomplishments are, the nominating committee would not get a full picture if they did not also learn about her commitment to the betterment of young lawyers and the legal profession. It is because of this commitment that I highly recommend Ms. Jenkins for the HCBA Professionalism Award.
