My daughter was faced with an unjustified accusation of academic impropriety, and due to a very restrictive set of guidelines imposed by the university board, it was an extremely uphill battle to defend herself and to prevent the stigma of having an academic ruling on her record, let alone the ensuing sanctions. After a thorough search for an attorney experienced in such matters, we decided on Dean Galigani, who, among other specialties, appeared eminently qualified and knowledgeable in education law and specifically in similar matters and with the same institution. My daughter, already having been found "responsible" for the alleged violations in a hearing, was facing a daunting appeal process when we turned to Mr. Galigani for help. I must say it was the best decision we could have made. Mr. Galigani was helpful, friendly, responsive, and insightful, and his fees were more than reasonable. His counsel was extremely helpful and wise. He helped put my daughter's mind at ease throughout the ordeal, and most importantly, his efforts on our behalf were instrumental in helping us reverse an unjust decision. Mr. Galigani helped my daughter overcome extremely difficult odds and win a hard-fought decision. My family has the utmost respect for Mr. Galigani's skills and wisdom and our deepest gratitude.

Dean Galigani could not have handled my UF student conduct case any better. Through this very stressful process, Dean clearly explained everything to me in a calming, yet informative manner. He knows the ins and outs of the student conduct process, which makes his recommendations invaluable. All throughout the process, Dean was always responsive, always answered my questions, and calmed me down even when times were tough.
I got the exact result I was looking for and I could have never of done it without Dean Galigani. Dean is the perfect person to go to when you need a strong advocate who knows the UF system inside and out.

Five stars Lawyer and more…
Dean Galigani is an excellent lawyer. He helped me with a Student Conduct case at the University of Florida. His advice helped me win the case.
I worked with Dean on my student conduct case for over a year. He advised me every step on the way. He attended all the meetings and hearings with me. I was truly impressed by his great knowledge of the University of Florida’s Student Code procedures, which are quite different from what is usually found in the US court system. He was able to explain to me with great knowledge all the procedures, my options, and the likely scenarios.
I came to enjoy his great dedication and professionalism.
Dean is a very courteous, warm and caring person, easy to talk to. He knows how to instill confidence during highly stressful moments. I always left his office happy to have talked to him and confident about my ability to win the case.
For me, Dean was more than a lawyer, he was a friend whom I respect. I will be forever grateful to him.
This is a lawyer who knows how to win a case and dedicate his time and energy to his clients. I highly recommend Dean Galigani to any student seeking help with Student Conduct case at the University of Florida.

Dealing with criminal charges is not an enjoyable experience, but Dean made me feel at ease during the entire process -- from my first consultation, to the successful dismissal of my charges, and through to the final expungement of my record. Dean's experience and professionalism was apparent at all times. Dean also has an excellent staff that was always responsive and ready to help. I highly recommend Dean to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney in the Gainesville area.

I had met with about three other lawyers before meeting with Dean Galigani. He quietly listened to my issues and then decided that he wanted to help me. He made sure that I wanted help and was capable of proceeding with getting emotional and psychological counseling. He outlined his plan and expectations for the case during our initial meeting and genuinely wanted the best for me. Mr. Galigani proceeded through with the plan and kept me informed of his progress. Dean Galigani has a thorough knowledge of the Alachua County/City of Gainesville legal system and he is is incredibly adept at solving issues without going to court. All expectations were met and the case handled as planned. His fees were in no way exorbitant and had I known how amazing he was as a lawyer I would gladly have paid more for his services.

I worked personally with Mr. Galigani and Mr. Hines. They advised me concerning the charges I was facing and kept me updated on how things were going. After they met with the prosecutor, the charges (a Third degree felony) were dismissed. I recommend them with the highest possible confidence rating. Also, Jill in the office was very comforting and helpful.

Dean Galigani and his office staff were extremely helpful in assisting me with my legal issues. After I initially contacted his office, I received a prompt response. Staff were always pleasant and professional. I always found it incredibly easy to get in touch with Dean and his staff. All of my questions and concerns were always answered with straightforward and substantial responses, which really helped put my mind at ease! He was able to have my record expunged and have the order in my hand only a couple of months after my initial contact with his office. I would highly recommend Dean Galigani and the Galigani Law Firm to anyone seeking legal defense in north central Florida!
