Our Testimonials

Mr. Cario formerly had a reputation for being overbearing and bullying. Over the years he has improved and has excellent ethics. He is an aggressive family law attorney who gets good results. Some attorneys find him abrasive, but I think it is simply that he is not afraid of contested litigation like some attorneys. If an attorney is doing his job he will not have a problem with Mr. Cario. He is board-certified by The Florida Bar in the area of family law.

The Versatility To Handle Your Case And Serve Your Best Interests

Some law firms are only trial attorneys while some are only mediators. At Jeffrey P. Cario, P.A., we can do both. Mr. Cario is a Supreme Court of Florida certified mediator and has also litigated thousands of cases like yours over the years. Attorney Scarano also has experience in resolving cases in many ways.

Mediation has the potential to save you time and money on a resolution. However, we are not afraid to fight for what you deserve in court if an amicable solution cannot be reached through mediation. Having the ability to comfortably resolve your case using mediation or litigation allows us to find the ideal solution for your legal challenge.
