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.

Dean is a kind, compassionate person, a rarity in a field that can turn Gandhi into a cynic. His concern for me as a person, as well as a client, was evident whenever I spoke with him. He honestly cares about his clients as people, not just cases. He didn't promise miracles, though he delivered one.
When he called me and announced that the state attorney had dropped the charges, I was stunned. The state attorney was a hard case and I didn't think she would let go of that bone, but Dean has a wealth of experience and knowledge that most defense attorneys can't match, and a desire to help his clients get the best possible outcome. I honestly don't think I could have gotten that outcome with any other lawyer.

Mr. Galigani fought for my case for almost an entire year without relent until we got the outcome we wanted. He consistently kept me in the loop and I only had to appear in court once - which was huge for me. Dean truly takes his clients' cases to heart and will give it his all. His rates are very fair - do not hesitate to hire Dean Galigani!

Thankfully, I have not required the services of a lawyer often in my life. But the one time I did I had no idea where to go. A mutual friend referred me to Mr. Galigani and I was very impressed from the first meeting. Dean was very upfront and honest with me . After the next several meetings, I truly believed that he was going to do anything in his power to help me. That is exactly what happened. Everything that was required of me was laid out for me and easy to follow. Dean obtained the"best case scenario" results that we had discussed when he took my case. That is great and I am appreciative of that. But more importantly, Dean was friend when a friend was needed most. His genuine care for the people around him and those he represents is evident immediately. That friendliness and genuine care is exactly what is needed when people are facing the law. He took the intimidation and the "unknown" out of the equation, and he did it in such a way that allowed me to move on with my life. For that I am forever grateful. If you want the best, call the Galigani Law Firm. I do not often write reviews for services rendered. I am compelled to do so in this case as my experience truly changed my life. I absolutely mean every word when i say great lawyers, and even better people.

Mr. Galigani spent little billable time on my case. I didn't have to appear in court. And, the initial client interview was quick and professional.

Whenever I have had any concerns regarding legal issues Mr. Galigani and his staff is my first point of contact. Mr. Galigani has helped me overcome many obstacles and along the way. He understands my worries and events that occur that give me anxiety and he helps alleviate those concerns. Due to prior experiences and the positive attitude of the firm, I have chosen to use them again to help me resolve post-issues involving my initial case. After my first contact with them, Dean called me the next day and was able to recall all of our previous encounters almost a year later! If you are in need of a compassionate, experienced, and knowledgeable attorney, the Galigani Law Firm can help you.

Mr. Galigani aided me in reducing two felony charges, an amazing outcome! The firm not only assisted me in resolving my criminal charges he concurrently assisted me in resolving academic sanctions as well.
His firm met with me and consulted with me the day I walked in. The firms staff was courteous and compassionate, and everyone knew me by first name, which I appreciated.
During the entire process I was worried about the outcome, but Mr. Galigani was there to answer any questions I had and also provided me with guidance and counseling to help me become "reintegrated" into the community.
His fees were extremely reasonable and he was willing to work with my current situation.
Without Mr. Galigani's help, I am sure I would have had a much worse outcome, and I am so glad I walked through his door.

Dean Galigani outlined his plan and expectations for the case during our initial meeting. Mr. Galigani proceeded through with the plan and kept me informed of his progress. In my opinion, Dean Galigani has a thorough knowledge of the Alachua County/City of Gainesville legal system. All expectations were met and the case handled as planned.

Gave knowledgeable advice and seemed genuinely concerned for my well-being. As a college student, I was reassured by his experience with criminal law and DUIs. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
