Sean Tobaygo

Most of my clients have their first legal experience through their divorce.  As a result, I focus on client education as the first step towards guiding my clients toward a successful outcome. Armed with information and an understanding of the law, our clients can change from being passive observers, to active participants in their own case. 

My first position after law school was as a Prosecuting Attorney for the State of Florida. This experience was invaluable in preparing me for a career of litigation. While I enjoyed the active trial schedule and the opportunities that working for the State provided, I saw a need for attorneys who had real litigation experience in the family law section.

In the decade that I've been in private practice, I've represented hundreds of clients in divorce and family matters, and each one has benefitted from clear advice and an explanation of the law. Client education and the resulting active involvement of the client are the central tenants of our litigation strategy.
