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.

I endorse Don Dennis in as both a criminal defense attorney and a family law attorney. He volunteers his free time to answer questions on AVVO. The answers are always helpful, insightful and accurate. He is an asset to the legal profession.
