About Katina

Learn Katina’s areas of practice.

Katina earned a Business degree from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida, in December of 2004. She completed this degree early; knowing that law school was in her future she chose to take a year between college and law school working as a paralegal to gain some hands on experience. This skill set solidified her decision to become an attorney.

 

Katina earned her Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law in May of 2009. Law school allowed for many priceless experiences including a study abroad program in Spetses, Greece, where she studied comparative international law. As well as a third year internship with the Middle District of Florida Federal Public Defenders Office located in Tampa.  However, the catalyst that landed Katina in the field of law she practices today was receiving the Elder Law Scholarship in her second year of law school. This was the beginning of her journey into elder law. She immediately fell in love with the work and most importantly the clientele.

 

Katina has been practicing in Florida for over five years and has recently started her own firm Katina Pantazis, P.A. She practices out of the Lady Lake office and works in elder law, estate planning, veteran's benefits, and wealth preservation. Katina considers this her dream job -- helping people secure their future, both for themselves and their loved ones.

 

Katina is also deeply involved in the community. She is a respected member of the Florida Bar, Marion County Bar Association, Lake County Bar Association, Sumter County Bar Association, Rotary Club of The Villages, Kiwanis Club of Ocala, Sumter County Chamber of Commerce, Lady Lake Chamber of Commerce, and BNI Club of The Villages.  She also serves on the board of the Arnette House in Ocala, Florida and is still active with her Sorority, Pi Beta Phi.  She spends her free time participating in co-ed intramurals including flag football, basketball, soccer and volleyball. She also enjoys running, kickboxing, yoga and crossfit.

Fantastic experience
Katina helped to creat our wills and trusts and health care power of atterny. We can now breath easy knowing that she dotted every i and crossed evey t. She didn't just stick to a prefabricated template she set everything up to fit our families exact needs and even took time to research laws in multiple states. While providing this excellent service she was easily accessible and patient. She clearly explained all aspects of our legal paperwork and made sure his was exactly what we wanted.

Trusts, Living Wills created for my husband and I
We needed to update and make our wills current and specific. Attorney Pantazis was professional at all times and was absolutely excellent when answering our questions, concerns, and in addressing specificiations for our wills and future medical decisions if we were unable to communicate our desires in a medical situation. She was very thorough when answering our questions and adding requested information to the documents we needed to create. We highly recommend her when you need the legal services she offers.
