About Cox Law Firm

Cox Law Firm P.A. handles varied and sometimes complex divorce and family law cases, many of which require the input of expert psychologists, guardians ad-litems and parenting coordinators to determine the most appropriate parenting plan and timesharing arrangements with children.

Our office has successfully negotiated and settled divorce cases with marital assets totaling millions of dollars. These cases frequently require the ability to uncover of hidden and concealed marital and corporate assets utilizing the help of expert CPAs, certified business evaluators and forensic accountants to account for all assets, despite clever and convoluted attempts to conceal them. Because of my 32 years of experience, I have the know-how and vital skills required to present your case at trial if we are unable to reach a fair and equitable settlement.

Benjamin J. Cox is the former President of the Lake County Family Law section, and one of the members of the statewide committee that was responsible for the proposed major changes to Chapter 61 of the Florida Statutes. The new legislation replaced outdated philosophies of custody and parenting with specific, new language and definitions to guide attorneys regarding parenting plans and time sharing between parents and their minor children.

Remembering you with gratitude

A year or so ago, I was called for jury selection in a Hartford murder case. In Connecticut, the attorneys for both sides can question prospective jurors individually. When it was my turn, the prosecuting attorney, noting my answers to the questionnaire I completed, state that it was unusual for someone to be involved in the number of lawsuits I've participated in (i.e., Florida, an age discrimination suit against Aetna, a real property dispute). She speculated that I must have a negative opinion about lawyers.

"Oh, no," I said. "I've liked all my lawyers." That was absolutely true, but you, Ben, are my favorite. You are a thinker and a strategist who thinks of all the angles. You are very good at analyzing people and relationships. While continually showing restraint in stating what positive outcomes we could expect, you nonetheless kept encouraging me to "stay in the game," which was so important. And you were always well prepared. I grew to know that I could trust you to do an excellent job on my behalf, and that you certainly did.

Many thanks for your good work, and thanks also to your staff for their part!

With best regards,
Anne Morris
