Dane Leitner Amazing Legal Advocate
At The most darkest time in my life it was a life saver to have Dane and his legal team on my side advocating for myself and my children’s best interest. His legal expertise was superior; he is calm by nature, but don’t let that fool you. He is extremely knowledgeable, studies the players involved, strategizes accordingly and is gracefully forceful to accomplish what is humanely right. His legal assistant Angela is just as compassionate , extremely understanding and hands on as we worked efficiently compiling the necessary information within a short time period. I will be forever be grateful for Dane and his team for a successful divorce; for giving me my life back as now I can enter a new happy phase in my life for my children and myself. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me get my life back!!!

Top rate legal services
As a result of Covid, I found myself in a situation where I needed an attorney to help me recover my security deposit. This was an unusual situation because funding for my loan was pulled two days before the scheduled closing due to market conditions surrounding the pandemic. After some research I retained Ward Damon to help with this matter. Attorney Leitner was assigned to my case and has done a wonderful job resolving this issue to my satisfaction. I was so pleased with his professionalism, I also asked him to represent me in closing on another property I recently purchased. I would highly recommend Attorney Dane Leitner to anyone who finds themselves needing a top litigator.

Help with setting up an LLC
I had contacted Dane on recommendation to help me set up an LLC. I contacted him via email and we were able to complete everything despite backlogs with the state all via email and in a very timely manner! He explained everything well and I am also using his firm as the agent for the LLC. He is very responsive to emails and ensures that everything is being done.

Excellent Divorce Attorney - Hire Him!
Met Dane on the eve of filing for divorce, which at first, looked like to be a regular amicable divorce. So far so good right? I quickly came to the fact that shortly after I filed for divorce, my ex became totally irrational, vindictive. Her drinking and her pill popping did not help. I have always heard that in Florida, women get more sympathy from the judges and men always get the "short end" of the stick. Well, I am one man that got a fair shake, and I have the thank Dane for that! Dane is an EXCELLENT, TRUSTWORTHY, KNOWLEDGEABLE, RESPONSIVE ATTORNEY and not only he supported me both legally and emotionally through a divorce which became very difficult, but he also clearly described options and strategies which he executed flawlessly. Extremely well versed and very knowledgeable with Family law, during this stressful process, Dane answered my all my questions and concerns timely and patiently. I appreciated his expertise and "on point" professional approach. I was not only happy with the outcome of my case, but can rest my head on my pillow at night knowing that I did right. It did not come cheap, but at the end it was well worth it, and 9 months later, I am FREE! If you want to be properly represented by a PROFESSIONAL attorney, DANE LEITNER is your guy! I give him 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend him and his firm.

Lead Pastor
Dane is very professional and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what services we needed and connected us with that branch of the firm. He periodically checked in on us after handing us off to the real estate division. We will definitely do business with Dane and Ward Damon again.

Divorce proceedings
Dane and his paralegal, Angela, were amazing! At a very upsetting and confusing time with many twists and turns, Dane was available to explain all that was going on at every turn. Dane had a very calming approach and his patience was unshakeable. The entire process went smoothly and quickly without drama or unnecessary extra time. I felt very much like I had a friend at my side through the entire process. I really can't say enough positive things! I would not hesitate to call Dane, or anyone he would recommend , in the future.

Thorough and Competent
Can't say enough about Dane and his professionalism taking me through a very difficult divorce. His ability to explain things to me clearly and concisely along with his fast response time with any questions I had was invaluable. I always felt he went above and beyond his call of duty having my best interests in mind. His assistant, Emily, was absolutely fantastic as well. Would use this team again in a heartbeat.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Attorney Leitner litigated a case against a Florida condo association almost five years ago. His draftmanship and legal writing is stellar. I was using the complaint he drafted in that case as a sample for a somegthing I'm working on. I sought his advice about what to do as it pertains the appointment of a receiver. He is very good in condominium law. He responded in less than 24 hours and gave me some guidance. That kind of civility and professional courtesy is hard to come by in this area. This is the kind of lawyer I would hope would represent a friend or a family member. Highly recommended."
