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.

Great Experience! Highly recommended!!
I could have not asked for a better overall experience. I was referred to John by a friend who had a great experience as well and John and his team did not disappoint. They were super responsive whenever I would email, call or text with any questions I had. John is straightforward and to the point and made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend using him for any family law needs. He is the real deal!!

Great Attorney
Before hiring John, I was court ordered to parenting time only 2 days out of the week. As a parent/Father who is involved in my children's lives, this was unacceptable to me. My divorce was headed in the wrong direction. I made the greatest and best decision to hire John who answered all of my questions and was very knowledgable in Family Law. Throughout my time with John, if I had a question or concern, he was always available via phone call/text/and email. If for some reason (and this was extremely rare) I couldn't reach John on the first try, he would return the text and/or call back within minutes. He was always available. John is the type of attorney that will supply you with truth and honesty in your case. During my time with him, if he said it, then that's what happened. John was honest all throughout the process. His relentlessness and determination yielded positive results and increased my time with my children to 50/50 shared parental custody. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. John was also very reasonable and worked with me with cost. John comes highly recommended and is highly respected in the courtroom. My divorce is now final with there is no better feeling to know that John had my back throughout the process and exceeded my expectations.

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I contacted John on a post-judgment modification issue related to a parenting plan and time-sharing and immediately retained John after the initial consultation. From the initial consultation throughout the entry of a final judgment, John was responsive, honest, fair, understanding and hard-working. This was a very difficult time for us and emotions often ran high. John provided each of us with access to his personal cell phone number and would respond to texts or calls within seconds. The counsel that he provided us throughout this novel process was that of consummate professional. His advice always came from a place of knowledge of the law, the parties and the Judge, and his past experience. Additionally, John was more than fair with billing practices and did not nickel and dime every single text or brief conversation. To say that we were satisfied with John's representation would be an understatement. We were more than that. John lead us through a very challenging time and made us feel, throughout the entire process, like were his only clients. We would highly recommend him to anyone.

Absolutely recommend John DeGirolamo!
After fighting for split timesharing for my children for the last 5 years, I decided to hire John. John is the most tenacious attorney out there. He was always available anytime I had questions and provided me the support I needed. He was professional and it was clear that he knew his stuff. John will absolutely fight for the rights you have as a father. As a result of John’s effort and hard work, I’m pleased to say that he was able to get me the timesharing I was asking for. Nothing I say will ever be enough to thank John and his firm for what they did for me and my family. My children are thrilled they get to spend more family time with me and this will positively impact them for the rest of their lives!

The best family law attorney in Tampa
John is an amazing attorney who handled my divorce and his advice and counsel throughout the entire process were invaluable. John is very responsive and is always a call, text or email away. John has the tenacity and demeanor you want in your corner when going through something so life changing. He will fight for you and will always represent your best interests. I would strongly suggest that anyone going through a divorce hire John to represent them. Thanks to John and his team for everything!

Simply the best
Took my case last minute. Had great communication (personal cell and even available after hours). Told me exactly what would happen how it would happen. On the day of court, everything went as said. He did amazing in the court room. Can’t say enough good things about him. He is an amazing lawyer and person!

John is very communicative and aggressive as I needed for my attorney. I had an attorney prior to hiring John and we spent almost 8 months getting nothing accomplished. John was amazing and exactly what I needed for my divorce case. He gets things done as quick as possible. Thank you for all your help and keeping me focused.

Made a great choice
When I first called John to inquire about divorce, he was helpful and patient. I liked his confidence, so I hired him. This was the best decision I could have asked for. John consulted with me about what to expect and prepared me. John’s team is also diligent and organized. John is very personable, but direct and when he learns about your situation and needs, he’s pretty firm and drives for a fair outcome. If you’re looking for a respected divorce/custody lawyer, John’s your man.

Great family law attorney.
Mr. DeGirolamo helped me through my divorce process. He and his team were there throughout the process answering my questions and getting it done. He was fair with my ex-spouse and protected me from her attorney that was doing his best to take advantage of me. I would recommend him to anyone that has to experience a divorce. They were all terrific.

SUPER LAWYER!!!!
I initially choose John because of his reviews. PEOPLE HIS REVIEWS ARE LEGIT!!!!! This man is an impeccable lawyer & his team is just as incredible. During my free consultation with John he reviewed my case and understood what needed to be done, we agreed on a plan to end the divorce as quickly & painless as possible. I remember him telling me that he I was in this with me til the end. He professionally, but aggressively put pressure on my ex’s attorney to finalize. Still not sure how, but John got my divorce finalized in about 4 months. THANX JOHN!!!! I am so grateful & thankful for you & your team sir! John was very easy to work with, responsive and did actually what he said he would. Thanx again John!!!! I highly recommend hiring John for representations if you find yourself in this similar situation, YOU WILL NOT REGET IT!!! John DeGirolamo and his team by far exceeded my expectations!!!
