In 2019, the United States Senate passed a resolution designating October 28th as National First Responders Day to honor the men and women putting their lives on the line. We believe our first responders deserve to be honored every day. Thank you for all you do for our community!!Ps- it’s National chocolate day too! Two awesome reasons to celebrate!

Contested Adoption Trial Update: WE WON!


As many of our followers and clients know, Autumn spent the past 6 weeks deep into trial preparations and spent the end of August in trial on a very contested termination of parental rights and adoption case.

Today we receive the ruling and… WE WON!!

Our clients won the final adoption of their son and daughter, who they’ve raised for nearly 6 years (about 85% of their lives), and the biological father’s parental rights are terminated.

Autumn worked tirelessly on this case – 18+ hour days – late nights and early mornings. She believes that these children are in the right place.

To say this was a huge win is an understatement – and the best result for these 2 kiddos!

It has been an honor to play a role in this formal creation of this beautiful family!

Hancock Law Firm is 7!

On August 7, we celebrated the end of our 7th year serving Florida families.

Each year at this time, we pause to reflect and to remember that the passion that drives us each day is to make a difference in our community, one child at a time and one family at a time.

None of this would be possible without YOU, our clients and supporters.

You have entrusted us with your adoptions, your mediations, your family law cases, and all your legal needs throughout these seven years. And, you’ve shared us with your families and friends.

We are truly grateful for you and honored to be a small part of your story!
