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.

I would highly recommend Wayne F. Jentis as your lawyer. Mr. Jentis has represented me in my recent Bankruptcy and some previous motor vehicle fines for me and my family members. I am always able to speak to Mr. Jentis directly when I needed to and not just to a paralegal. I find, Mr. Jentis to be very professional, knowledgeable and represented me as his client to the highest degree. I'm glad Wayne F. Jentis is my lawyer.

Unlike many other lawyers who are promising to help in a person's desperate divorce situation yet once you hire them they spending the retainer immediately and then withdrawing soon right after if there is nothing more to take from the client or if they misled the client with their legal advice and lied to the client in first place with the possible outcome, Wayne F. Jentis honestly explains how the matter stands in the particular case, what the client's rights are, what is the outcome and the perspective might be, what are the possible options to resolve the case in the most painless way without any additional stress and within the shortest period of time; then Wayne F. Jentis is guiding the client through the process of preparing pleading documents, suggesting how to shorten the whole case and settle effectively, constantly staying in touch with the client and informing about everything what is going on and all what client wants and needs to know in order to move the case forward.
Wayne F. Jentis is a very experienced and knowledgeable attorney, and is always focused on how to come to an amicable settlement with the opposite party and a faster resolution of the problem rather than to dragging the case out indefinitely vs. as many other lawyers do.
But after having a number of unsuccessful experiences with different lawyers during my divorce case, what I appreciated the most is that Wayne F. Jentis is a very compassionate, considerate, and understanding person in first place, he puts his clients needs ahead of his own, he works to succeed a result, a positive result! While Wayne F. Jentis values his time and efforts he puts in his work, he is never after taking an advantage of his client. He charges a very fair pay for his job. And that what makes him stand out of the crowd of all the other lawyers.
In my particular case my divorce could have gone to trials but thanks to Wayne F. Jentis it got resolved without it, we have reached an agreement with the other party, settled a lot faster than it could be, and I avoided going to trials. Thus Wayne F. Jentis has helped me to shorten my divorce process.
If I would ever had to suggest a divorce lawyer to anyone, Wayne F. Jentis will be first one I would recommend! Thank you!!!

I used to live in New Jersey , before I moved to Florida in July 1999 . When I went to renew my license in 2012 . Motor Vehicle told me my license was suspended in New Jersey . Which I had to contact NJ Motor Vehicle in order to have them clear my license from a DVR directory. In my attempt to resolve this . I got nowhere, I didn't even know why my license was suspended . I was told I had to go to New Jersey in order to resolve license issue. I found Wayne F Jentis , browsing through internet. Once I hired him , he was able to get all the documentation regards to case . Which was a nightmare to find out that someone with My name got a dui and other tickets violations and where added to my license number . Mr Jentis was able to resolve this case without me going to New Jersey .

Mr. Jentis always made me feel lilke I was his only client. His knowledge of Family Law is unsurpassed, Not only did he show compasion and understanding but he reduced his fees so that it made it feasable for me to retain him. His responses to my emails and phone calls were immediate, he also contactted me in the evening house long after his office hours should have been over. He kept me focused and grounded during this trying time in my life and definitely gave me a wonderful sense of comfort in knowing that he "Had my back"

I, for one, cannot recommend Mr. Wayne F. Jentis enough to those going through a time in their life that requires legal advice.
Having gone through one of those times myself recently- I found Mr. Jentis to have a calming influence anytime I didn't understand a specific proceeding. He was quick to explain any potential problems and quickly set a course of action that would be most beneficial.
I have the utmost respect for Mr. Jentis's ability to "right the ship", and will be retaining his services again in the future should anything arise.

Attorney Jentis is extremely professional and kept me on focus and was a great balance emotionally during an extremely difficult time in my life. He is well versed in the laws and his verbage in regards to legal issues is unsupassed. He always made me feel like I was his only client. Highly recommended

Wayne was extremely helpful in my case. I found him to be genuine, knowledgeable and efficient. I was determined to divorce expeditiously and Wayne came through for me. I was very pleased and would most definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I am very grateful, not only for the effort Wayne has put in my case, but also his experience and in-depth expertise applied in bringing the case to a satisfactory closure. Wayne trully represents the highest level of integrity in this profession. He is very reliable and highly dedicated. He is also very skillful and flexible in applying his knowledge in the case. These comments are based on my previous experience working with others and I have compared. If all the attorneys are like Wayne, people's life will be better. Wayne is a role model in this profession.

Wayne was and continues to be so very helpful to me and my family during a difficult time. Often times, we get so inindated with problems that we can't seem to focus on what comes next. Wayne has a way of having us take a deep breath, looking at the problem at hand and helping us stay on course. My issue is not over, but it is more bearable. There is light ahead and for that I have to thank Wayne
