Family Law Attorney
Accredited Collaborative Professional
Family Law Mediator

A passion for guiding people through crisis inspired me to begin The Aikin Family Law Group in 1995.  I bring more than 40 years of experience as both a trial attorney and family lawyer in helping clients make wise personal and financial decisions for their futures. I believe the best solutions result when divorcing and separating couples work together to fashion out-of-court settlements. My conflict resolution toolbox utilizes Collaborative Law, mediation, and constructive negotiation, to help clients achieve their goals.

My clients and their spouses are generally professionals who place a priority on protecting their children’s interests and preserving family relationships. I focus on complex family law cases, unique family and co-parenting situations and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.  Every client’s fact situation is different. I approach each respectfully and creatively to help find the optimum way forward for them and for their families, while navigating their legal issues with expertise and compassion.

I have been instrumental in the early development and expansion of Collaborative Law Practice in Central Florida, serving as the President of The Collaborative Family Law Group of Central Florida from 2006-2017.

In addition to being a founding member of The Collaborative Family Law Group of Central Florida, I am also an active member of the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

I also have the privilege of being one of the few collaborative law practitioners in the State of Florida who has achieved the Accredited Collaborative Law Professionals designation, since inception, awarded by the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

As a State of Florida Certified Family Law Mediator, I have also mediated myriad family law cases for well over two decades. My reputation is that of a seasoned, calm mediator who is an excellent listener. I also work cases outside the confines of the structured mediation process as may be needed to bring a case to closure which is outside the norm for Central Florida mediators. For 2024, I have been recognized by Best Lawyers in Family Law Mediation.

I carry the Best Lawyers Best Family Law Lawyer of the Year in Orlando 2022 recognition, as well as being honored by my peers as the Best Collaborative Family Law Lawyer of the Year in Orlando in both 2021 and 2024.

I am especially proud to have assembled a law firm of talented attorneys recognized for their skill and for innovative option-building and problem solving. Our approaches bypass the courthouse backlog and inordinate cost associated with contested in-court litigation. Mindful of time and financial constraints, we are known for our streamlined systems and deep bench of ancillary resources, as well as our skill in assessing cases and functioning efficiently and economically on behalf of each client. In the process, we never lose sight of the emotional and financial challenges faced by families during these major life transitions.

“I’ve hired many lawyers in my life, never thought I’d need a divorce lawyer… Wendy is hands down as good an attorney as I’ve ever met in my 40 years of working with various attorneys. Don’t hesitate to hire her if you’re in need – it’s a no-brainer. Her calm competent and mature approach was invaluable to me, and it was never in doubt that she was in my corner at all times. I recommend her without reservation.” – Former Client

“I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work on our prenuptial agreement!  It took some time and some back and forth, but I am very pleased with where we ended up!  I appreciate the support and I’ll gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a family law attorney.” – Former Client
“I am grateful for your fighting hard for me, advocating toughly on my behalf, yet guiding me patiently and with compassion.” – Former Client


“From the very first time I met you, I could tell that you were a very compassionate caring & strong women! Thank you for caring the way you have & fighting for me like you did!” – Former Client

“I will never forget how kind you & your staff were to me. It helped me to go on.” – Former Client

“Thank you so much for walking the path with me. You kept me strong & humble when I needed it the most. You helped me regain control of my life and for that, I will be eternally grateful.” – Former Client

“…Change, strength, courage, our love of self and independence, all of which you helped me obtain. Forever grateful.” – Former Client

“Thank you Wendy! Your work has transformed Central Floridians’ Lives!” – Family Law Attorney

“You are kind, gentle, and smart, and firm all at the same time. You are admired by many.”– Family Law Attorney

“I am so thrilled. You were able to accomplish what no one else could. Thank you again.” – Former Client

“First, I can’t really express how much I appreciate what you and your team did to help me; a simple thanks does not do it justice. My frustration with my other attorneys and my ignorance about what to do made me feel like I was drowning; it was making me physically ill. You on the other hand are a professional, know what you are talking about, and do what you say you are going to do. I doubt that you realized just how comforting that can be to someone going through a divorce. So, thank you, for helping me get my life back.” – Former Client

“Through the process, I knew I was in good hands with good legal advice from you, which I really appreciate.” – Former Client

“You have a great style which helped me navigate these troubled waters. Many, many thanks.” – Former Client
