Highly Recommend

David represented me in a child support case and I'm extremely pleased with the outcome. David is articulate, understanding, and VERY knowledgeable of the laws. He and his assistant were always prompt in returning my calls and thoroughly answered any questions I had. He gave good advice & had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend his services!

Mr. Caveda and his team,Helped me through the most difficult time of my life. I couldn’t imagine a better attorney to have at your side.

A Brilliant, Compassionate Attorney

David is definitely a lawyer you want on your side; he's not only brilliant and out of the box thinker (all within the law), he has the ability very few attorneys have: David not only connects client's punctual legal needs; he connects with client's from within: A compassionate attorney (one in a million).

Saved My Relationship With My Daughter

My ex-wife petitioned the court to relocate with my daughter ... to Japan. Although it is a signatory, Japan does not readily and normally cooperate with the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction. Adding to that the fact that the Hague Convention only applies to children removed "illegally", if my ex received permission from the court to take my daughter there, I likely would have never seen her again. Japanese courts "take" jurisdiction for such cases. I would have had to travel to Japan, hired a Japanese lawyer, and pursued the matter through Japanese court. Bottom line is, if my daughter was taken to Japan, our relationship would've been permanently severed.As a disabled vet, single parent, and full-time student, I had no idea how I would pay for any lawyer to see the case through to completion. David knew this but he took on my case anyways. He promised to work with me on the money ... and he did.We won. David saved my relationship with my daughter. He frequently caught my ex in many of her web of lies. He successfully addressed all the points of consideration in a relocation case. He told me what he had to tell me and didn't blow smoke up my dress. He met me at times and for lengths of time that were likely not very convenient for him to prep for hearings. He always appeared in court prepared to litigate with a good grasp on the issues. I was very impressed and am very grateful to David. I would recommend David to anyone who wants to preserve their relationship with his/her child.There are many scumbag lawyers out there. I honestly believe David is an exception to the rule.THANK YOU, DAVID!!!!!!!

Honest and Professional

In the realm of family law I learned it's important, yet no so easy to gong an honest lawyer that won't add stress to the process. Atty. Caveda was sincere, professional, in tune with current statutes and invested just enough in getting to know about the workings of my family life to service my case. While my hope is to never need representation again, I would entrust him with the process if so.

Excellent Attorney!

I started my divorce with little to no knowledge or experience in family law. My ex husband had me under the false pretense that he had the upper hand in getting everything he wanted in regards to timeshare and Custody of our son. I was very fearful that I would be left with very scant timeshare and no say over what happens with our son. I had had several consultations with other attorneys and was very close to picking a different attorney for representation, but I came across David's profile and decided he seemed experienced and scheduled my consultation shortly after. I'm so glad I did! It was a brief consultation, however, I felt so confident in his ability and my case from just a few minutes of talking with him. He was very wise in his field and had asked about and discussed things other attorneys hadn't even mentioned, and I had a great sense that he knew exactly how my case was going to play out. He was a bit more expensive than the other attorneys, but they worked with me on my retainer, and he was completely and totally worth every dime. I won't ever regret spending what I spent for my divorce. He was able to finalize everything with me only having to spend a little over my retainer. He also was more than happy to quickly intervene a mistake I had made in my paperwork, and hastily produced an ammendment fixing everything I needed and then some. He was very eloquent in his documentation and presentation and that helped in getting my ex husband to agree on things I know he otherwise wouldn't have. I was very pleased with my overall divorce agreements. I now have my son the majority and my ex husband and I share all decision making abilities. David is excellent to work with. He listens well and is very knowledgeable and experienced and made me feel very confident in my case from start to finish. I'd also like to note, that his assistant Pamela is equally great. She was on top of all of my documents and court hearings and made sure I was always in the loop. Great experience alltogether. I strongly recommend David Caveda and his practice to anyone in need of a family law attorney. He won't let you down.

The Best of the Best!

Best decision I ever made

While going through a nasty custody battle with another attorney who simply couldn't get the job done, I called Mr. Caveda for a 2nd opinion. I have to say that was the best decision I ever made, Mr Caveda took over my case and cleaned everything up in a matter of 3 months! This man is articulate, law savvy & he does exactly what he says he will do. After hiring David I no longer worried about my case, finally I could get peace of mind & rest. In the end I retained sole custody of my 7 yo child. I would highly recommend Mr. Caveda it would be a mistake not to call this man. GREAT HONEST ATTORNEY!

- Ryan


Superb

If I ever need an attorney then David Caveda would be my pick... I used him for an non contested divorce and thing could not have went smoother..Reasonable and extremely easy to get your questions answered (from him and not an assistant) were two requirements.. From start to finish was less than 2 months. Before you make a decision it would be very wise just to give him a call. You will be convinced as I was...

- Jack


Trustworthy Attorney

Attorney Caveda was thorough and able to make all the changes that I wanted to the custody modification. He outlined, very clearly, all the things that he needed from me. He achieved our goal and I was static with the results. He kept me informed of all the deadlines and eventualities. He walked me through the process and helped me stay focused and calm. He reinstated my faith in the system. Thank you Mr. Caveda

- Michelle


Best Attorney!

After wasting my money on a "flat rate firm" that didn't even look at my case a friend of mine directed me to Mr. Caveda and I could not be more happy. Mr. Caveda helped me not to win my share parenting case but to get to that happy medium where I was pretty comfortable and where my son was not affected with the agreement. I have to say that he not only helped me professionally but he also helped me emotionally. He gave me great advices when I wanted to say outrageous things to the other part or ask for non sense agreements in regards to the case. He also has children therefore he understands what is to be a parent. He's an awesome attorney and a great human being and he will always be there for you!

- CMRodriguez


Excellent Attorney

David did a great job working for a settlement in my case and he got a very desireable outcome. he always kept me informed and worked well with me on many levels. This was not an easy negotiation and he did a nice job with opposing council and in the end that saved me money. David is definately not an attorney who just drives up the bill. I would highly endorse David

- JP


Excellent family law and child custody attorney

David helped me to get primary custody of my daughter. My daughters mother made ALOT of allegations about me that simply were not true and David was able to make the judge realize that. He is not the cheapest lawyer but you cant put a price on winning custody of your child or children. I recommend him to anyone that is looking for a good attorney.

- Michael

I just had a phone consultation with David Caveda. I have been struggling financially after separating from an abusive husband. While I was not able to hire him because of my finances my experience was very positive. He was very professional, sensitive to my situation, thoughtful and informative.

I would personally use David again.

After speaking with several other lawyers before talking to David, it was refreshing talking to someone who really understood my situation as a retired military person being married for over 27 years, David was very good at listening to all my concerns and he was able to answer any questions I had, we were able to go with just mediation instead of having to go to court. His insight to how things would go and experience were exceptional and right on point throughout the mediation. He never tried to make my case go any longer than it needed and I was never charged for any service I didn't receive. I would personally use David again if needed and would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a divorce lawyer, he was a honest and extremely knowledgeable of Florida Law.

- Matthew Brewster


Highly recommended Mr. Caveda for family legal matters.

I had a horrible experience with a previous attorney handing my family legal matter. I contacted Mr. Caveda for consultation and reviewing the case. Mr. Caveda demonstrated a superb attorney who truly cared about my case, not about the money. He is affordable, dedicated and extremely diligent. He actively communicated with me and provided answers and explanations in detail. I'll certainly use him again in the future. Highly recommended Mr. Caveda for family legal matters.

David is an excellent attorney and a compassionate, kindhearted person.

I have been a Legal Assistant for 36 years with 8 of those years working with David. Without a doubt he is one of the most knowledgeable, respectful and caring lawyers I know. He works long hours and goes out of his way to accommodate his clients and everyone he works with. David's honesty and integrity far surpass the 5 stars in this review. David is an excellent attorney and a compassionate, kindhearted person.

David helped me win custody of my daughter almost 15 years ago.

David helped me win custody of my daughter almost 15 years ago – something not always easy for a father to do. Prior to that my daughter was suffering from neglect while living with her mother. Now she has thrived for the past decade and a half, culminating in graduating summa cum laude from the honors college at an esteemed university and has been admitted into Harvard for grad school. None of this would have been possible without David's assistance. He was there every step of the way during the most difficult time in my life. He was always very candid with me, is a talented strategic thinker and has a very respectable courtroom presence as well as a high level of integrity. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who needs a family law attorney.

His door is always open to former clients, as is the case with me.

My divorce was a very, very trying time in my life; one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. Attorney David Caveda understood my pain, and took extraordinary care with me and my situation. He was professional, pragmatic, experienced and caring, and never hostile towards the other side. He worked well with the other lawyers and mediators, and since children were involved, he worked diligently with their best interests in mind.It is often said that no one “wins” in a divorce settlement. I feel that David did all that he could to help me move forward in my life, which I have. His door is always open to former clients, as is the case with me.I highly recommend David Caveda; with him you will receive not only his best, but his integrity as well.

- Daryn Johnson


Easy to talk to and always available.

Going through child custody was one of the hardest things i had to go through, it was very intimidating and confusing. I contacted Mr. Caveda, he was very honest, informative and always kept me up to date with my case. He made the process less stressful and made sure I understood what my options were and what what’s best for me and my child at all times. His legal assistant Pam was great, easy to talk to and always available. If you are having any legal issues, I highly recommend MR.Caveda.

- Pauleetta Rendon

Calm, Correct, professional, compassionate advice and service. We were struggling with a family law issue concerning the life and custody of a child. We switched Lawyers and chose Caveda.

David Caveda was a godsend.

David Caveda was a godsend. He helped me through an issue I had stemming from my five-year-old divorce, saving me over $100,000, at minimal cost. Then, just recently, he took an hour out of his day to help me understand a really complex, multi-jurisdictional problem on behalf of my sister-in-law. David isn't just a good lawyer, he's also a great man. I recommend him unreservedly.

- Laurence MacKenzie


David is a real professional.

David is a real professional. Knowledgeable, factual, prompt, courteous, and efficient. I had previously retained two attorneys (with no real strategies) that wasted my time and money. I had also consulted with several other law offices. Unless your situation is non-contentious, don’t try to save money on your representation. It will cost more in the long run. It would have saved me time, money, and grief if I had contacted David initially. His assistant Pamela also does an excellent job.

- Jack Campellone


In my humble opinion he is an absolute outstanding attorney.

I can not thank Mr.Caveda enough,when he was representing me.With his formost knowledge and expertise to get justice that was lacking for many years do to inadequate represantation of former attorneys and there lack of knowledge in military divorce cases as mine was.I recommend Mr. Caveda highly to anyone that seeks legal representation,because he will fight for your rights to the fullest of his ability and experience which speaks for it self. In my humble opinion he is an absolute outstanding attorney.

- Ria Smith


Outstanding support and extremely professional.

Outstanding support and extremely professional. If you are in the military, this is the person you want on your side. Knowledgeable and always looking to find fair resolutions in the best interests of the clients. Thank you so much for what you did for me and my family. Thank you David.

If I ever need more advice or an actual lawyer I will always call him first.

I had a question about my child custody agreement and moving out of state and David gave me the legal advice I needed without charging me since it was a straightforward question. If I ever need more advice or an actual lawyer I will always call him first.

He has made a huge impact on my life and I am eternally grateful.

I highly recommend this law firm. My divorce/custody case was very complex and had been going on for about 5 years and been through the hands of 5 different attorneys. Mr. Caveda being my 6th attorney, promised to be my last and final attorney and bring my case to an end. In just a short amount of time, he was able to accomplish what others hadn't and finally close my case. He worked diligently and I was extremely impressed by his professionalism, honesty and determination. The way Mr. Caveda represented me during my recent divorce trial was absolutely incredible and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. He has made a huge impact on my life and I am eternally grateful.

- Liz Del Valle


David is a wonderful attorney.

David is a wonderful attorney. When I first met David, he found out that the paperwork for my divorce (5 years prior) was not filed properly and that I was still legally married. Being ex-military, David understood my predicament with my then-husband. He was diligent with my unique case and was always available for questions. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing a divorce lawyer. He even got my pension raised because of the improperly-filed paperwork from the original divorce. I am forever in his debt because of the impact he has made in my life since.

- Anyela Adams


Were incredible and outrageous. David is a true professional.

I highly recommend David Caveda Law firm. My divorce case became very complex as the demands been placed were incredible and outrageous. David is a true professional. He worked long hours and went out of his way to accommodate my needs. As a military service member with over 20 years of service, David represented those core values I seek in every professional, and for that David, I stand at attention and salute you! David is not your regular lawyer, he will level with you, tell you the good and the bad and will become a friend who carry the heavy load of your burden on his shoulders. He did for me. David will bring that balance of having a true knowledgeable professional and a caring friend. I have used his services more than once. I know down in the near future and without hesitation, will need of his support again. I would highly recommend David to anyone. He is one of Florida’s best lawyers. I am rating David Caveda and his staff (Pam) the 5-stars because there are no more starts. Thank you.

Mr. Caveda is a compassionate, responsive, skilled, intelligent, and sophisticated attorney. He listened carefully to my situation and worked with me to achieve my goals.

A fantastic attorney that leads an incredible team at the firm. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through any family law issue.
