Professional and
Mr. Komninos is an excellent lawyer who was able to resolve my potential breech of contract case very favorably for me, and without getting involved in the court system... He overcame my personal disabilities and limitations, and represented me extremely well. I highly recommend his services!!!

Outstanding Job by Spiro Komninos Law Firm 100% Satisfied
I was referred to Spiro Komninos by a very good family/friend since I was considering purchasing an existing business. Prior to hiring them they answered numerous questions and helped me understand the importance of having legal council for the type of business I was interested in acquiring. Komninos law firm was very knowledgeable of all the laws and regulations that was needed to ensure my future purchase was vetted and my investment was protected. They got the work done ahead of schedule even with challenges that were presented by the other council in the transaction. I would recommend Spiro Komninos and his law firm to any of my family and friends. I also plan on using Komninos Law Firm for all future business transactions that would require an attorney.

A One Stop law firm/ An all inclusive 5 Stars Firm!!
We are amazed how God always answers our prayer. As a paralegal for many years selecting a good, reputable attorney is highly important for me and my family . (Integrity-Compassion-Due diligent-trustworthy,fairness, quality ), this firm has them all Our family Bussiness started with a discrimination, lawsuit against my husband from a previous employee , that then extended to a “battery assault “law suit , to more ( 3 counts against our family Bussiness) with the intention to defame my husbands character as a christian man of God who follows the word of God and the Golden rules . We were introduced to this firm by a reputable Attorney Nick, after we explained our situation to him It felt like a category 5 huracán was coming straight to us , but Mr. Spiro in the middle of our storm took the time , talent and compassion to explain us things step by step from a legal point of view .Our conversations, emails , calls radiated the peace of God , by feeling a supernatural peace when we needed it the most . Giving us hope and feeling that” Everything was going be okay “. Even In the middle of our traveling missions trips , Mr. Spiro always kept us posted , but never interrupted our Marriage Conferences. He highly respected my fathers 95th bday family reunion time .took into consideration My health issues at that time , our Anxiety level , my concerns and even as a Paralegal He never belittle me , he answered to my repeated questions with patience and with a peaceful heart . Mr. Spiro showed and understood that even with my level of education and my Latino heavy accent, an personality, he knew, and felt my stress level during this case . He had his other attorney Mr. Liben , a man who knows the law very well , a great thinker who looked at the case from different angles and even though At times I felt like I drove him “ crazy”asking so many question . They both showed a clear mind , wisdom , understanding , dignity and respect toward me and my husband. We as christian Family Bussiness and on behalf of my husband as a Pastor/Marriage Coach HIGHLY recommend this firm . Blessings to you and your family ! (Muchas bendiciones a usted y a su familia )

Selling A Business
Spiro represented my husband and me in the sale of our small business. He provided excellent service and advice during negotiations, due diligence and Closing. He was especially helpful at Closing because the Buyer's attorney who was also the Closing agent left the process to her paralegal who was not equal to the task. The Closing would not have been possible without Spiro. Thanks, Spiro.

Buying a Business
It was a pleasure working with Spiro in July 2020. He was instrumental in helping acquire a small business here in South Florida even with the challenges of being a 4 hour drive away from each other. He walked me step by step through the entire process always watching out for my welfare in the deal. Knowing that this was my first business acquisition, he made it as stress free as possible. Thank you, Spiro.

We purchased an existing business and Spiro was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

An Outstanding Attorney - Very Professional with Great Work Ethics
I hired with Mr. Komninos for a Business/real estate matter. I had an issue with a property I had just purchased and the builder kept dragging the issues and refused to fix them until Mr. Komninos got involved. Mr. Komninos had my best interest from the beginning, was very honest and treated me with dignity and respect. He is a true professional with the work ethics every attorney should learn from. The results were outstanding and in a timely manner. Mr. Komninos delivered exactly what he promised me without any surprises. It was a great experience; since then I’ve been consulting him regarding other Business dealings. I have recommended him to many other friends.

Real Estate DIspute
I was very please with Spiro and his staff. I had an issue with property in Florida and living on the west coast did not know what to do. Found Spiro's website and spoke with his staff. She put me in touch with Spiro right away. They were very helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly. I felt very supported by his team. They knew what I should do, was constantly in contact with me and was very helpful. I would highly recommend Spiro and his staff.

One of the best business attorneys I've ever come across!
Spiro came in mid-stream after we had to dismiss our then current attorney for straight up incompetence. Spiro immediately took control of the litigation our business was involved in and immediately turned everything in our favor. Within three short months Spiro had brought everything to a positive end for us. Without any hesitation we would recommend Spiro and his firm to anyone looking for a great business attorney.

Resolving Partnership Disputes
My objective was to resolve a partnership dispute which other attorneys had been unsuccessful. Komninos was able to resolve it in a timely basis. I liked the upfront set fee, however, when things went well I would have probably been better off on an hourly basis. I am sure the reverse could also happen so I guess I should not complain as the overall objective was accomplished.

Short Sale success story
Spiro and his team guided my wife and me though very treacherous legal waters as we negotiated with Chase to either refinance or Short Sell our primary residence. We first tried to refinance our home due to a financial hardship. But Chase simply refused to concede anything that would assist with our situation. So after almost 2 years of getting no cooperation from Chase, Spiro suggested that the Short Sale option could be a good one for us…and he was absolutely correct! Thanks to his diligence and that of his team we successfully navigated every artificial hurdle Chase put in our way. Yet through all this -- and I cannot over-emphasize the challenges we had with Chase -- Spiro and his team not only brought our case to a successful conclusion but were able to negotiate a significant financial incentive that my wife and I now enjoy. If you think you have need for a legal team to represent you, look no further: Spiro and his folks are the ones you want. They will stick to the case like glue and battle on your behalf! Many thanks guys --you’re the best!

Professional Service With Results
My experience with this law firm was great. They were very professional, prompt, accessible and friendly. And most importantly, they were successful in my short sale. Almost every time I called their office I got the right person to answer all my questions and give me updates on progress. I recommend this law firm to anyone wanting to do a short sale!

Komninos Law
I have worked with dozens of lawyers- anything from corporate formation, to litigation, to asset protection, tax, etc. I can honestly say that Spiro and Tom at Komninos Law are at the top of my list of professionals. They cared about me as a client, were proactive in handling every step of a difficult real estate transaction, and delivered exactly what they promised. This was especially great for me as the transaction was in Florida and i live in California. They made it easy for me. I highly recommend this law firm. SHR- San Jose, CA

His intellect and energy are both extraordinary. I have seen that he cares about his clients and getting results, not just about generating fees. He is a credit to our profession, and I look forward to working with him as often as possible."
