Attorney Profile

Board Certified in Marital and Family Law

Jennifer C. Frank is a Board Certified Marital and Family Law attorney. Board certified lawyers have met The Florida Bar’s highest standards for specialized knowledge, skills, and proficiency within their area of expertise.  The experience and competency of Certified lawyers have been rigorously evaluated, and they are the only Florida lawyers allowed to refer to themselves as “specialists” or “experts” in their particular field.  Only approximately 6% of licensed attorneys are Board Certified by The Florida Bar.   Jennifer has therefore distinguished herself with the Florida Bar and within her legal community as a specialist and expert in her practice area of Family and Marital Law.  Jennifer is also AV Rated with Martindale Hubbell, which is the highest rating level possible.

Frank Family Law Practice Philosophy

Jennifer has been handling family law matters since 1994 and, while she is a fully seasoned trial litigator, Jennifer is committed to exhausting all other creative avenues and options before resorting to the use of our unpredictable Court system to solve her client's problems.  Jennifer’s practice style is both compassionate and practical. Her family law clients appreciate her honesty and her ability to provide realistic goals while protecting their interests.  Jennifer understands that it never makes sense for families to spend all of their hard-earned income and assets on lawyers and litigation.  She is therefore devoted to finding creative settlement solutions which minimize damage to the family, to their finances, to their businesses, and which work towards positive co-parenting relationships in the future. Jennifer works hard to resolve cases in a civilized and dignified manner while always working to keep the financial and emotional well-being of the family as a whole at the forefront.

Marital and Family Law Practice Areas

The Frank Family Law Practice is located in Altamonte Springs, Florida, near Orlando and Winter Park and Jennifer is its founder and president. Frank Family Law Practice represents clients throughout Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Volusia Counties. The practice is focused entirely on all aspects of Marital and Family Law including, but not limited to, divorce, timesharing (child custody and visitation), alimony, the division of marital wealth and assets (including cases requiring business valuations and other complex asset analysis), child support, enforcement of child support, alimony and equitable distribution, modifications of child support, alimony, and other post-judgment cases, domestic violence injunctions, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, and paternity cases.

Collaborative Law

Jennifer is specially trained and has extensive experience in successfully handling cases within the Collaborative Law model.  This dispute resolution model teams two Lawyers (each representing one spouse) with two highly trained neutral professionals (a Mental Health Neutral and a Financial Neutral).  The roles of the neutrals are absolutely essential and central to the process.  Both parties sign an agreement in advance committing themselves to the Collaborative process and agreeing, as a form of “insurance,” that they must end their attorney’s representation and find new counsel if the Collaborative process were to break down and move to litigation. This team then works intensely outside of the court system through a series of carefully planned and well-organized meetings to assist the spouses in finding their best possible resolution to their divorce or post-divorce matter. While these cases are not always easy, this process allows the spouses to work through some of their pain and frustrations within the safety of the team while still working creatively and cooperatively to solve the practical and legal problems created by the divorce.  Often these Collaborative cases result in the spouses ending their marriage, after a lot of hard work, while maintaining a tone of respect, dignity, and civility with one another that is difficult to achieve in a typical litigation case. 

Certified Family Law Mediator

Jennifer is a State of Florida Certified Family Law Mediator. As a mediator, she works hard to limit positional and intractable bargaining behaviors that prevent settlement.  Instead, she works with parties and their lawyers to have the often difficult face-to-face conversations necessary to reach a creative resolution while in a safe, comfortable, non-threatening and effective mediation environment. Jennifer explores and develops creative and workable solutions and is committed to providing parties and their attorneys the necessary time and space needed to ensure that all aspects of their Agreement are fully understood before signing.

Currently she is servince a two year term (2014-2016) as President of the Central Florida Family Law Inns of Court and has sat on that Executive Board since 2011.  She is an active member of the Collaborative Family Law Group of Central Florida.  In 2012 (Chicago, IL), 2013 (San Antonio, TX), and 2014 (Vancouver, BC) Jennifer will have participated in the International Association of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) 4-day Forums for Advanced Collaborative Law Training.  Jennifer is a member of the Tiger Bay Club of Central Florida and the League of Women Voters, Orlando Chapter.
