Dean Galigani and his office staff were extremely helpful in assisting me with my legal issues. After I initially contacted his office, I received a prompt response. Staff were always pleasant and professional. I always found it incredibly easy to get in touch with Dean and his staff. All of my questions and concerns were always answered with straightforward and substantial responses, which really helped put my mind at ease! He was able to have my record expunged and have the order in my hand only a couple of months after my initial contact with his office. I would highly recommend Dean Galigani and the Galigani Law Firm to anyone seeking legal defense in north central Florida!
Dean Galigani was supportive when my son was arrested for underage possession of alcohol. He was an excellent communicator throughout every step of the process of defending my son. He had a logical strategy developed through years of experience and successfully got the case dismissed. His prices were reasonable, too. I highly recommend him and would gladly seek his services again...but my son better not need them!!
From the first telephone consult to the last meeting in person, Dean Galigani has made a marked impression on me. Although Dean handles many criminal cases, he is also very knowledgeable about the inner workings of issues relating to the UF process. Dean explained his course of action but gave us the freedom to chose how we wanted to proceed. He is very professional yet shows a true interest in his client. Galigani Law Firm charges were fair and the estimates given were right on target with the final cost. Dean's staff are friendly, courteous, and thorough with messages to and from Dean. I know that you will not be disappointed when hiring Dean Galigani to represent you with your legal needs.
I have hired Dean Galigani for both of my cases, Marijuana possession and throwing an open house party. Dean was successful in getting my Possession charge expunged and my Open house party case dismissed. He also handled the university student conduct meeting and attained a favorable result.
When faced with 1st and 3rd degree felony drug charges, I did not see much of a future. Over the course of approximately 30 months, I was consulted through an intensive pre-trial diversion program that I luckily found my way into because of Mr. Galigani's diverse network. Throughout this process, he not only worked to keep me out of jail, but also kept me in school, and allowed me to maintain career growth. The final results were a clean record after the charges were dropped and expunged. I cannot thank Mr. Galigani enough.
I would highly recommend the Galigani Law office to anyone in the Gainesville area. If you are feeling stuck, reach out and see how they can help.
Dean was able to get me the best sentence for the charge I was up against, which was a felony charge for a hit and run. He seemed to legitimately care about me and what happened in my case and his law office personally went out of the way to see that I got the best outcome. This was a real blessing because I have a family and I needed the best outcome to happen for them. Another great thing about Dean is that he doesn't over charge for his services. The lawyer I consulted before him charged twice as much as what I ended up paying with Dean. I am thankful to have been lucky to stumble across Dean and his fellow co-workers at his firm.
I had to hire Dean Galigani for a criminal case involving a relative. He is professional, knowledgeable in criminal law, well connected in Gainesville and returns calls promptly to answer any questions. Due to his efforts, we were able to obtain a prompt satisfactory resolution to a serious legal problem. His fees are fair and well worth the legal representation received. Summa cum laude in all aspects.
I hired Dean Galigani back in 2012 after a DUI arrest on university campus. Out of all the lawyers that I contacted, he stood out to me for one reason: he wanted to do what was best for my situation, not what would make him the most money.
Dean immediately warned me that he would not try to fight this matter in court unless necessary. As a result, he worked towards an agreement that would reduce my charge. Additionally, he worked with me to make sure that I could financially afford his assistance and successfully closed my case without me having to reside in Gainesville, Florida. These factors were very important considering that I was on the brick of graduating from undergrad and would be soon entering graduate school in a different city.
Within two months of my DUI arrest, Dean was able to secure that my charge be reduced to reckless driving with alcohol on the condition that I met a list of terms as well as successfully completed probation. Although my deferred prosecution took some time, I can’t image having resolved this issue with another lawyer or in another manner.
Not only did Dean reduced my charge but also periodically checked on me to make sure I was ok. Today, he is currently working towards sealing my criminal background and again, worked with me to ensure that I could afford this process. Dean Galigani is a lawyer that actually cares about his clients and remembers who they are outside of their legal issues. He is the lawyer you should hire if you want experience, compassion, and successful results.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mr. Galigani for the past 15 years. Dean is the type of lawyer that other attorneys go to for advice.
His knowledge and experience is second to none and he's handled every type of criminal case possible. If you have a criminal case in Alachua County or the surrounding areas, Mr. Galigani is the attorney you need to handle your case.
Mr. Galigani was able to get all my charges dropped. He was very responsive and made me feel as if I was his first priority. I would recommend him to anyone who has any criminal charges.
