About Me

Mr. Dennis is a native of Panama City. He obtained both his bachelor's and law degree from Florida State University. Soon after graduating from law school he joined the 14th Judicial Circuit of Florida as Senior Staff Attorney.  There he worked directly with the judges on all matters before the judiciary with an emphasis on criminal and family law.  Mr. Dennis then transitioned into the corporate arena taking the position of Associate General Counsel with the Florida Dental Association in Tallahassee. There he was an advocate for the profession working in the areas of professional regulation, licensing, lobbying and business consulting. 


Don returned home to Panama City and partnered with Nancy Jones Gaglio and the firm of Jones Gaglio & Dennis was born. Away from work Don enjoys golf, fishing and spending time with his wife, Alisa, and their son.
