How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

As a transplant, I was hesitant to open a law firm in Florida.
I was convinced that it was not practical to practice law in the small town I now call home. Fortunately, however, I received strong encouragement from my friends, neighbors and members of the legal profession attorneys as well as judges.
Eventually, I began to build this practice, which includes Estate Planning, Accidents and Real Estate. First, relying on past years of experience in the New York Tri-State Metropolitan area and representing contentious litigants in highly volatile fields of law, I evaluated my greatest successes and courtroom experiences. Next, having committed to become a Floridian, my Family and I built a vibrant network of friends and acquaintances across all demographic groups with whom many personal experiences have been shared.
While representing clients and arguing cases in our State Courts, I recognized a critical need for a Family Law Attorney, such as myself, who practices and believes in the efficacy of Therapeutic Justice.
Clearly, most people are unaware of the purpose or even existence of Therapeutic Justice techniques. And in brief, this is a comprehensive approach emphasizing respect for the present and future needs of the client and family by the formal application of our Family Court laws. This approach to Divorce and Family Law incorporates every vital element of zealous legal representation while preserving family values and self-worth.
When I introduce myself and am asked what I "do," of course some snap that they " . . . . hate lawyers." I know they feel victimized by a typically bad divorce experience. Of course, I confidently reply that my Divorce and Family Law clients "love me." Today, more than ever, the demand for a unique approach to Divorce and Family Law steadily rises as the number of my satisfied clients continues to grow.
When you call and meet me you, too, can be pleasantly surprised at how great your life can be.

Lynnette J. Callender

I was raised in Queens, N.Y., and received my Bachelors of Arts Degree from Sarah Lawrence College, in Westchester County, New York. I received my Juris Doctorate Degree at Howard University School of Law, in Washington, D.C. As a Law Student, I was a Law Clerk researching and drafting opinions for Administrative Judges. I also served as a Legislative Intern for the Congressional House Ways and Means Committee, where I submitted a dossier on the Tax Reform Act. After graduation, I was appointed as a Field Attorney for the Federal Government and thereafter, argued cases in the both the New York Supreme Court and Federal Appeals Court.

When my family relocated to Florida, we committed ourselves to philanthropy and public service for the benefit of the public good. For several terms, I was appointed to the Daytona Beach Community College Board of Trustees, which established Daytona State College. Thereafter, I served as an Arbitrator in the Office of the State Attorney General and was certified as a Family Law arbitrator and mediator.

One of my cherished achievements include a Paul Harris Fellow Award from the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, to eradicate Polio throughout the World.

My mentoring activities have ranged from Middle School reading programs to High School students programs. I continue to serve as a Flagler Palm Coast High School Mentor. And as far as volunteering and professionalism is concerned this and what follows is only my "Short List."
