I wish this rating system would have a higher amount of stars to pick from, but even if it had 1,000 stars, that still would not be a high enough rating for this fantastic lawyer. I knew nothing about how the criminal and family law system until last year. When my family found out we were going to need a lawyer; a lawyer who is trial certified and who can do family and criminal law as well, I did not know what to do. Thank God we turned to Mr. Wayne Jentis. I Thank God for Mr. Jentis every night because he saved my son from going to jail and saved my granddaughter from being kept away from him and the entire family! Mr. Jentis is knowledgeable, experienced, caring, and honest. He returns phone calls and answers emails promptly and never once did he keep us in the dark. Furthermore, his integrity, ethical standards, and passion for the law were above and beyond my expectations. There are just not enough words to tell you what an outstanding job him and his entire staff did for us. I would recommend him to everyone. If you need a lawyer, please go see Wayne. He is the right choice by far. Thank you again Wayne. You rock!

Wayne Jentis provided me with excellent service. Mr. Jentis not only handled my case in the most professional manner but you could tell that he honestly cared about the outcome of the case. Mr. Jentis responded immediately to every question I had and he always kept me up to date on my case. He helped me achieve exactly the outcome that I was looking for and I'm truly grateful for all of the assistance. I will not only use him again if ever needed, but I will recommend him to anyone that could use his services.

Mr Jentis took my case as a Simple Divorce. However, after some time it became apparent that it would not end so quickly or simply. My ex did his best to prevent/delay the divorce and used all sorts of legal and illegal tactics to achieve this. Mr Jentis handled him with aplomb and achieved my goal of ending my marriage while remaining financially stable.

Mr. Jentis entered my divorce proceedings mid-way through the process, after I had a variety of negative experiences with other attorneys—both those I hired and those I simply interviewed. I was very thankful to have found someone with such a vast array of knowledge and experience, who was well-respected by all the judges we had to deal with, and who also demonstrated a unique ability to understand and show compassion for his clients. Mr. Jentis was able to take control of the situation and reached the best possible outcome for me under very difficult circumstances. I have also hired Mr.Jentis to represent me in a variety of post-divorce matters to deal with a very difficult ex-husband, and have always found him to be a consummate professional and a tireless advocate for me and my family. He has always been more skillful and adept than opposing counsel, and has been more than prepared for any eventuality. He has fought hard to reach the best possible conclusion for me even when it seemed impossible, and continues to do so, and I consider myself very lucky to have found him and to have him by my side. I know that he is simply the best, and could never thank him enough for all he has done.

I would like to tell everyone what a really great lawyer that i found. He is a true professional, empathetic, and seemed to work 24/7 on my issues. He provided excellent advice on my case that I know saved me thousands of dollars, plus he was very responsive to all my calls and emails. His name is Wayne Jentis. He has one of his offices here in Melbourne, FL...plus some additional law offices out of state. I truly highly recommend this lawyer!

Mr. Jentis was very easy to talk to and made me feel at ease. There were instances in my situation that made me feel hopeless. However, Mr. Jentis assured me of my legal rights and kept me informed through out the entire procedure. His experience with dealing with difficult people was obvious. At no time did I lack confidence in his ability to resolve the situation in a manner that would be beneficial to me or at least mutually beneficial to both parties. He took sincere interest in my case, and was prompt in his responses to my emails and phone calls. I would sincerely recommend Mr. Jentis.

I was so delighted to find Attorney Wayne Jentis at a most difficult time in my life. He took the time to truly "Listen" to my situation concerning my marriage and my need of going forward with filing for a divorce. He was very knowledgeable on the marital laws for Florida, and in our first interview he expressed such compassion for me.
He and his staff were always prompt to return my calls and reply to e-mails in such a timely and professional manner. When the time came to go to mediation, due to the lack of my spouse agreeing to reasonable terms, he was extremely prepared to negotiate on my behalf.
He was quick with ideas and his guidance was very helpful and appreciated. Especially from someone like me who was just tired, and hurting. He got me the key results of my initial petition and more! He has the capability to wield a two-edged sword. He was very aggressive to fight on my behalf, and yet gentle and patient toward me in explaining processes and procedures. I would recommend him to fight for your battles as well, if that is your need. Now that the divorce has been finalized, I am giving him all of my future legal needs as they arise. If you also want results then hire Wayne Jentis.

When choosing an attorney, my first and greatest concern was to have an attorney that would always have my best interest at hand. Wayne spent more time with me and accomplished more in a period of ten days than two prior attorneys combined did in 15 months! Wayne had to present a case of a 20 year marriage scheduled for trial in 10 days and after an expected postponement was denied, did whatever it took at all hours to learn everything he could about the case to be prepared for trial in that "impossible" time frame. Although settlement looked impossible upon hiring, he was eventually able to forge a settlement agreement at the court even after the trial commenced, allowing me the ability to at least have some say in the inevitable compromises I would have to inevitably make in a hotly contested divorce case. Words cannot explain my gratitude towards Wayne and the commitment that he made towards my case. If you are looking for an honest and asseretive attorney to represent you, Wayne is the man for your case.

If you have ever been in a desperate situation and you know that your only hope of a judicial miracle in your favor will depend on your choice of a well learned legal practitioner. I prayed for this miracle and my answer was Mr. Wayne Jentis from East Coast Law Firm.
Mr. Wayne Jentis saved me from the very certain license suspension/Revocation I was to get for three tickets resulting from Excessive speeding, Reckless driving and failure to produce documents. My initial meet with him was over a telephone conference and later in person on the day of court.
Earlier on I was not so sure I had made a good decision for having him represent me and not because he was not a good lawyer but for the mere fact that he actually worked out of a Florida main office. In any case since his practice included both states of Florida and New Jersey I stuck with my gut feeling and he came through for me. During the course of my case which was two appearances only he never gave me a false hope but rather explained to me of different scenarios that we might encounter and how he intends to defend it. He was quite methodical in his approach. Thank you Wayne for being such a gentleman and for being there for me.

I had a special case that was difficult for me to understand.
My son who is 28 and lives in New Jersey was asking for child support payments to continue.
I live in Florida and support ends at the age of 18 years.
Wayne Jentis has a practice in both New Jersey and in Florida and because of that he was able to help me understand both states position.
With a lot of care, Wayne helped me with all of the understanding of the law and important understanding of what steps I needed to take.
My son has a ongoing medical condition that prevents him for being self supporting.
Without the help of my Lawyer protecting me I would not have had a chance.
