Trusted Advisor
John was my trusted advisor throughout the entire process. His number one priority was protecting me and my children. He's direct and to the point and provides candid feedback. He is always available, responding almost immediately at any hour of the day. He doesn't nickel and dime every communication and works tirelessly to resolve the case as quickly as possible. Would strongly recommend to anyone looking to go through a divorce.

You need a bulldog? Hire John.
I cannot recommend John enough. If you’re a dad and you want someone who will tirelessly work on your behalf and best interests, you need to hire John. He tells you exactly what you need to hear, not what you want to hear, and is amazingly responsive. He helped me and my kids through a four year slog of a case and if it weren’t for him, I don’t know where we would be. If you follow his guidance, you will get the absolute best results possible for your case.

Best choice by far
I chose John and his firm and it was by far the best choice I could of imagined. His dedication to his clients and hard work is a cut above the other options one may have in their legal matters. He gave me a personal feeling that I was the most important client and he never let up on his dedication to make sure I was taken care. Would recommend John and his firm to anyone needing legal representation. Thomas C. Redmond

Just call. Trust me.
If you were like me, having marital issues, having a spouse tell you she could divorce you, take your kid, your house, the dogs, and everything you spent (and will spend) your life working for because "Courts always favor the woman!" Your mind starts racing through all sorts of scenerios ranging from bad to nightmare. Eventually you pull yourself together just enough to realize you need some help, some advice, some clarity. It has been a year now, and can't remember exactly how I came across inlawwetrust.com and John DeGirolamo, but I am certain my life would be a shadow of what it once was if I didn't. I remember the day I called John a year ago in February. I was so stressed out that I could barely convey why I was even calling. John talked me down, explained how the process works, costs, expectations, everything. He then asked me why I was even calling him. Now a bit puzzled by this response, John explained to me that I'm not even ready for a divorce yet based on what I had told him. That's a good person there. NEVER pressured me into a divorce, never treated me like a number. Ended that phone call relieved, educated, and most importantly confident and calm. Fast forward about 8 months, and I had caught my spouse having an affair. Time for me to act. Now 100% sure I need a divorce, I once again called John. Right away he remembered who I was and my situation from earlier. That same day I had one of the best divorce lawyers on retainer, and both of us began filling out paperwork immediately. John got that divorce filed so fast, my soon to be ex had just wasted her time and money trying to file. Soon to be ex filed a bogus injunction with a restraining order and took my son. John handled all of it. I even stayed in the marital home while going through the process. Every document, every court date, every update, every next step was in my inbox AS IT HAPPENED with no delay. Every question I had was answered right away. No "within 1 to 2 buisness days." Right away. Day. Night. Weekend. John was on top of it all. Fair, straight forward, always there for you especially when the soon to be ex trys some sketchy stuff that sets your head in a tail spin. Do your due diligence and research as one should, but this is your family lawyer. Just a bit from what I found, John served 3 years on the grievance committee, which he was one of 4 lawyers that evaluated ethics violations for the Florida Bar in the 13th Judicial Circuit. This is a LAWYER who has ZERO ethical complaints on his record. Let that sink in, and ask your other law groups you may be considering about that. Even after my divorce was finalized, John STILL answers my questions while I navigate tieing up all the loose ends required by my divorce agreement. I got lucky finding John and this law firm. You dont have to rely on that luck. Pick up the phone.

Awesome lawyer
John was worth every penny I spent with him and I would not hesitate to use him again if I ever need to. He was so good that my x wife said she wanted to use him if she ever gets another divorce. I am impressed with his service. I recommend him to everyone I talk to..

Recommended as best divorce attorney
I wholeheartedly recommend John as an attorney, especially for those navigating divorce proceedings. Throughout my experience, his composed demeanor stood out as an invaluable asset. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, with a deep understanding of the legal system that instilled confidence at every turn. John's responsiveness and attention to detail were remarkable, always providing candid and clear-headed advice even amidst challenging situations. His firm and fair approach, combined with his top-notch competency, truly set him apart. What I appreciated most was his ability as a robust negotiator and logical thinker; he consistently steered me away from pitfalls and motions designed to provoke rash decisions during the most testing times. I would, without a doubt, recommend John time and again.

Amazing Attorney
I had the privilege of working with John D and this firm. He is an outstanding divorce attorney who truly went above and beyond to represent my interests during a complex divorce case. From the very beginning, he exhibited a remarkable level of dedication, steadfast demeanor and no bull attitude. His expertise put me at ease during an undoubtedly challenging time in my life. John's commitment to protecting my rights and ensuring a fair outcome was unwavering. He was incredibly thorough in his research, meticulous in his preparation, told me what I needed to hear, whether I wanted to hear it or not. He always kept me informed about the progress of my case. What truly set John apart was his ability to handle difficult situations with grace and professionalism, ensuring that my interests were protected without resorting to aggressive tactics. He advocated for my needs effectively and managed to secure a favorable resolution that exceeded my expectations. I would wholeheartedly recommend John to anyone seeking legal representation in a divorce case. His expertise and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome make him a standout choice in the field. Thank you for helping me navigate this challenging chapter of my life with the utmost care and professionalism.
