My Father is retired from the Air Force and I imagine that had I not gone into law, I probably would have followed his lead by joining the military.  In fact, I was still toying with the idea during law school by looking into joining as a Judge Advocate General (JAG).  My inspiration to become an attorney was probably some combination of watching my Stepfather, who was an attorney, and Joe Pesci’s character in “My Cousin Vinny.”

I think my biggest strength as an attorney is that I actually enjoy being a lawyer and practicing law.  Because I enjoy what I do, when working a file, I always take the time to familiarize myself with the intricate details of the case and also to research the issues thoroughly in order to build the strongest case possible for my clients.

My favorite thing about practicing law is that I have the privilege to be able to litigate in a courtroom, which is something a lot of others can only watch on T.V. or in the movies.  The fact that I get to help people while doing this is icing on the cake.

When I took the Florida Bar Exam in July 2011, I was the only candidate out of well over 1,000 people still standing when the exam started.  I was having technical difficulties with my computer and the proctor for my row sent me to the wrong place to obtain the packet necessary to hand write my answers.  I ended up missing probably the first 5 minutes of the exam, but when I finally got back to my spot and sat down I couldn’t help but laugh that it was I who had just experienced everyone in that room’s biggest fear at the time.

Litigation avoided
After being refereed to me by a highly regarded attorney in the Gainesville Fl area, my discussion with Eric Dibert about a potential real estate litigation case was very helpful. Although his recommendation for me to keep negotiating with a troublesome attorney has not worked out; his knowledge of my rights and the direction on how to proceed has helped me to see how now to move forward.

Great Attorney
Mr. Dibert gave us great, no-nonsense advice. He didn't charge for the brief call, but if we hire anyone, it will be him.

Eric
I want to thank you for doing business with me. I feel so fortunate to have had such a good experience with you and your company. I went to the internet, did some researching, left messages for many, but you called me back and during our conversation I knew you would turn my luck around. After my previous experience with an attorney, I feel blessed. Thanks again for helping me through this mess.

Probate matter - Renter ejection
Eric was retained during probate proceedings which required the removal of a tenant in the property involved. With Eric's help we were able to have the tenant removed legally from the premises according to state laws. We are grateful to have had Eric handle the requirements of the state and are very satisfied with the outcome. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and that we appreciate your work very much.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Dibert saved the day for my family. We had an emergent landlord tenant issue and despite having a full schedule, he made himself available to go over our case the same day we called his office. Mr. Dibert was very friendly and well versed in landlord tenant law and he took the time to listen to all of our concerns and he explained what options were available to us. After only a few days, he successfully negotiated a swift resolution in our favor. If you are looking for a great attorney, I would highly recommend Mr. Dibert.

Very professional
Eric worked closely with me through my divorce. Asking about and remembering the things that were important to me and the case. I felt that my attorney cared about the outcome and helped me to understand. It was a long and drawn out battle but Eric stayed the course. Thanks

Did not help me
I hired Eric to help me with a landlord tenant issue. I was not satisfied with his work, I feel he just didn’t want to deal with the situation. He made me feel that it was not worth his time for the “few hundred dollars “ in the deposit amount that I was after. I do not recommend him for this work.
