A Personal Approach When You Need It Most

John E. Long Jr.

Managing Partner

John “Jack” E. Long, Jr. has been in practice since 1965 and has specialized exclusively in family law matters since 1977. Board certified in marital and family law by The Florida Bar Association and certified as a family mediator by the Florida Supreme Court, he is well-qualified to handle any family law matter.

Jack’s clinical yet humanistic approach to divorce law sets him apart from other attorneys in this complex field, and he has met with considerable success in a range of divorce and family law matters through his decades in practice.

The clinical aspect of Jack’s approach is relatively easy to understand. This primarily involves the resolution of all property and liability distributions, the issue of alimony, the issue of a parenting plan, child support, and finally some collateral issues such as life insurance, medical insurance, and other forms of collateral to secure the awards received by the client or the opposing spouse.

He works with clients who are primarily interested in restoring their sense of self-worth through the process of divorce so that when all is said and done their dignity is restored. That, by the way, is the humanistic approach that Jack adopts in the dealing with his clients.

Do not interpret Jack’s desire to practice in this fashion as a weakness. That would be a tactical mistake.
