Shazia Sparkman has been the most amazing lawyer, counsel, advocate and ally during my highly sensitive, contentious and complicated case. I was married for 19 years and worked for part of my marriage. My husband ran several businesses and slowly started dwindling our accounts. By the time I realized that my husband had transferred all our assets and drained our accounts, he had served me with Divorce- I found Ms. Sparkman and her firm. From the moment I hired her she treated me like I was her family, like my case was hers. She worked tirelessly and sometimes I would drive by ( I live in South Tampa ) and I would see her working past 8:00 PM. she would email me at all hours of the night updating me on the case. She gave me hard advice, stayed firm and resolute and never made promises she couldn’t keep. Best of all is watching Ms. Sparkman in court, her passion is unmatched, her command of the law impressive and her professionalism awe inspiring in the face of some of the dirty tactic my husband and his attorney pulled. In the end, Ms. Sparkman’s counsel and advice preserved my sanity, gave me peace and courage and helped me start a new life. I received my rightful share of the drained assets, received my equity in our joint businesses that my husband tried to force me out of and retained our home and received permanent alimony. Ms. Sparkman is without a doubt the best lawyer I have come across- she is honest and compassionate and I would not recommend any other family law attorney under any circumstances.
