In 2008, attorney Vivian Cortes Hodz established the Law Firm of Vivian Cortes Hodz, P.A. The law firm practiced exclusively in the area of marital and family law assisting clients in all aspects of family law throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties in the areas of divorce, dissolution of marriage, equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, property division, alimony and spousal support, custody issues involving parenting plans and time sharing schedules, child support, paternity, modification and enforcement of existing orders, domestic violence injunctions and adoptions. Beginning in 2009, Vivian became a certified family law mediator and started offering mediation services.
In 2010, Vivian was joined by her husband, attorney Lawrence Hodz, and the firm became known as Cortes Hodz Family Law and Mediation, P.A. In 2016 the firm moved to its current location at the BMO Harris Bank Building in downtown Tampa, just a few blocks from the Hillsborough County Court House located at 800 Twiggs Avenue. The firm has shortened its name to Cortes Hodz, P.A. but continues to represent clients in the area of marital and family law throughout Tampa including South Tampa, Hyde Park, Bayshore, Lutz, Brandon, Valrico, and Riverview.
