I met and spoke with 8 different attys before i chose Douglas to represent me in my divorce. Its a tough period in your life. Quite scary. If the divorce is between two mature sane individuals ,its a breeze, as it should be ,, but as in my case, you can be sweet, sane and willing to be mature and even generous and be willing to be accomidating about the process,, and you can still be torched and ruined by the other person... Sadly,,,Greed ,Dishonesty, and the strong desire to wreck havoc and ruin the other person sometimes takes center stage,, My ex wife tried everything she could to destroy me , to the point that she was outwardly lying and fabricating stories to the authorities . I was scared to death, I KNEW i needed serious , smart, experienced representation..I needed an atty that actually gave a damn about me, someone i could confide in, someone that i could trust to help guide me thru the legal minefield that my ex laid out for me,
Some of the attys i spoke to were weak, you could just tell they were not going to fight hard on your behalf, ( This was a common story i heard ,when speaking with other guys about their attys ) They were simply going to process you according to the law,, others were slick snake oil salesman type, fancy and polished, but you just knew that as soon as you signed up with them, you would never see the head of the firm again, and your case would be handled by one of the young college grads on the staff..thats something you definatley DONT want. During the entire process of my case i dealt only with him on a personal level, no underlings or interns, he gives you the personal one on one service that you want in a high profile atty,,
I did my homework , studied many sites with reviews of many lawyers, ,,Douglas has a good reputation, and when we met i knew i had a big time winner , if i had to go to war to defend myself, this man was the one i felt would do the job and do it right,,, my ex went thru 3 different attys. But i stood steadfast with Doug and he did a fantastic job,, at the end of the process my ex even told me in the hallway of the courtroom " Hes good that lawyer of yours" to which i replied " "Hes one of the best"
You can go with one the local cheap attys in the yellow pages, but im telling you honestly, if your going thru a tough case and your spouse is out to ruin you, i suggest you speak to this man, hes the real deal, not only did i have a great atty who helped me achieve everything i was hoping for as this all began,,but i consider him a friend in the aftermath of it .
I highly recommend Douglas Kepanis and thats about as honest a review as i can give,

Douglas Kepanis is attentive and thorough for his clients. Our case has been going on for over a year, at no fault of Douglas and he is committed to our case and is continuing to make sure that a fair outcome is pursued.

The Kepanis Law Firm treated me with respect. My first attorney that I had hired for my case would treat me like a child, like I had no power to make any decisions in my case. Doug Kepanis spoke with me when I needed, and the flat fee retainer really helped me know my total cost ahead of time. I was even given my attorney's cell phone number so that I could reach him after hours and on weekends - no question was ever too small.
