Valdespino & Associates, P.A. was founded with the vision of providing the very best in family and matrimonial law to the people of Florida. We are a law firm where family matters, whether that family be same sex or opposite sex.

“Last Friday the US Supreme Court ratified public opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that finally recognized that same sex couples have a right to marry and that the States do not have a right to deny them marriage licenses. This decision guarantees same sex couples the right to live with dignity. This decision will prove to be the one that settled a major civil rights issues of our generation,”said Attorney Jacqueline Valdespino. In the majority opinion, Justice Kennedy wrote, “Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”


Jacqueline M. Valdespino practices Family and Matrimonial Law in Miami, Florida. She is a Fellow of the AMAL and Board Certified by the Florida Supreme Court. Jacquie received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgetown University and her Juris Doctor degree from The University of Miami School of Law. Since 1992 she devotes her practice
to Family and Matrimonial Law. She has been selected as one of the Best Lawyers in America and Florida’s Super Lawyers for Family Law.

Jacquie’s firm, Valdespino & Associates, is a “boutique family law firm.” A boutique law firm is a collection of attorneys, specializing in a niche area of law practice. While a general practice law firm includes a variety of unrelated practice areas within a single firm, offering multiple services to the client, a boutique firm specializes in one or a select few practice areas.

Valdespino & Associates specializes in divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements and mediated divorce settlements. By virtue of Jacquie’s location in Miami, Florida, an international city hosting many families who have relocated from around the world, Jacquie and her team are particularly suited to handle, and have handled many, Hague cases (that is, litigation of Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction) as well as complex distribution issues involving assets in many jurisdictions. Jacquie’s fluency in English, Spanish, and Italian have made her one of the most sought after family law attorneys in the nation, both as a practitioner, expert and speaker.

From Local Counsel to Lead – Boutique & Independent Law Firms

Jacqueline M. Valdespino is the lead lawyer owner of Valdespino and Associates, PA.

Ms Valdespino is Board Certified in Family and Matrimonial Law and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Board Certified Lawyers must take a written test and fulfill extensive requirements to maintain their Certification in Family and Matrimonial Law. Ms Valdespino became a Fellow of the Academy in 2002 and was the youngest Cuban American admitted. Selection as a member of the Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers requires both a written an oral exam as well as proof of an extensive trial practice.

Ms Valdespino is a member of the INBLF, giving her access to its worldwide network of practitioners. She is fluent in Spanish and Italian, having lived in Italy for two years, and has extensive contacts in Colombia. Ms Valdespino speaks extensively on issues of Family and Matrimonial Law, both locally and internationally.

“The internet and social media have thrust the boutique and independent firms into a global market,” observed Ms Valdespino. She opines that more specialised firms are doing better as they have fewer overheads and need fewer resources to keep current. However, to do so she believes that these firms need to reach out to a more global audience. “I believe in education and educating both other lawyers and the public regarding trends in the law,” she explained. “With a global society comes an increased global need for lawyers versed in the international aspects of a global family and matrimonial practice. Relocation when there are children, parental kidnapping, and enforceability of prenuptial agreements in multiple jurisdictions…the list goes on…” require a specialized Family and Matrimonial lawyer with a global perspective and the resources to meet the demands of the international client.

In conclusion, Ms Valdespino predicts that boutique and independent law firms will thrive over the rest of 2013 as they provide a personalized and tailored product/service.
