My name is Valerie and I had a great experience with K. Dean Kantaras' Law firm. During my marital upheaval I worked with Dean Kantaras as well as few other attorneys from his firm. In addition to providing superb services they are very up front about their fees, costs and expectations about how my situation would unfold. They also have a friendly and helpful staff - they treated me with compassion and empathy, more like a family member rather than just another customer.
In today’s “high tech” and “fast paced” society, it was nice to find an office that takes the time to get to know me as a person first in addition to providing excellent services.
K.Dean Kantaras' Law Firm is a step above and beyond most offices.
I have found my experience with this office to be extremely satisfying and I would recommend them highly to anyone and who needs a competent, honest and understanding attorney.
Had very good experience with Mr.Kantaras and his office for the past three years - that for how long my pathological divorce was drugging by my x. But Mr. Kantaras & his legal team was helping me in each and every way possible to go thru this very tough times for me. It is not just a high professionalism, what he has, it is also his human personality, which helped to go thru my divorce. Very thankful for that.
I would recommend this law firm over anyone in Pinellas County! Diligence and perseverance would best describe my experience with Mr. Kantaras and his legal team. Living in a state where fathers rights are constantly over looked, Mr. Kantaras and his excellent legal team fought and I was awarded permanent sole custody of my son.

He is very knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable with him handling my case. Everyone in the office was always really helpful and super nice. He never forced me to do anything I did not feel comfortable with in my case and really worked for me.

I was recommended by a friend and what a mistake it was listening to him. My experience was so bad I thought WOW could he really be all about the money and not care at all. I found it to be true when this morning I went to my current lawyers office met another Father fighting for custody who said he was also with Kantaras originally and spent close to 30K and got no where. I thank god he only got me for just over 10K before I also decided to move to someone who cares. He has been doing it for a while and is very knowledgeable but he is all about getting paid. He bills you to death for any possible extra item there is to bill.

Dean Kantaras talks a good talk....but doesn't really care what happens to a parent or his/her children. I was advised over and over to just agree to things I knew we're not in my best interest and told that they would be "easy" to address/modify in the future. How wrong he was....how I should have trusted my instincts. It's been years and I'm still trying to modify. No thanks, Dean!

While Dean was very personable my Final Judgement and modification following were worthless. He did nothing to protect my rights to my house. I brought up several errors and he would tell me not to worry about it. He charged over $70K and because he did make sure my papers were drafted property - I lost my house. I urge you - consider someone else

I had conducted 3 consultations when I decided to retain Mr. Kantaras & I feel I made the best decision. He and his staff are excellent. They have a way of making you feel as calm as possible in the stress of a divorce. Dean always seemed to be 2 steps ahead of opposing counsel & was always willing to make a change if he thought it best for the case. If Dean was unavailable, I felt completely comfortable with Stephanie Libbey stepping in . If u have questions... You can not beat the team of paralegals assigned to your case (Sharon & Nicole in my case were outstanding). And when u call or step thru the door, Nancy is there to greet you with a smile & a kind word... She will get you directed to where ever you need to be. The entire team make you feel that your best interests are being looked out for because they operate with a swagger of confidence, but without the attitude of arrogance that can lead to mistakes. I would recommend this lawfirm to anyone who believes that their divorce is going to anything less than pre agreed upon terms.

I was referred to Mr. Kantaras' practice by an attorney who I respect. I retained him to represent me in my divorce. I was ending a marriage of many years. I had no knowledge of procedure or the expected course. I was comfortable with Mr. Kantaras from our first consultation. I found him to be sincere, ethical and very capable.
My divorce was contested and took twenty two months. I feel that I developed a relationship with Mr. Kantaras, the para legals, the receptionist and various office personnel. At all times I felt my case was handled aggressively. Florida Law and reasonable expectations were explained. The para legals aided me in providing Mr. Kantaras with the necessary documents and finiancial records. Mr. Kantaras represented me through depositions, two mediations and trial preparations. On the morning of the trial, the opposing attorney proposed an offer to settle. I feel Mr. Kantaras was by far the superior of the attorneys. It is my feeling that Mr. Kantaras' strong points are his excellent legal skills and his high legal ethics.
I feel that I was well represented and I am happy with the professional services rendered.
