Highly recommended
This attorney kept me focused on what was best for me during a very emotional time. His knowledge and compassion to my needs and helped guide me to a very reasonable settlement. He would always fight for what was best for me financially and ended up winning our case. I would highly recommend him.

Divorce Demands Excellent Legal Representation!
I met Luis Insignares, Esq after interviewing several attorneys for my divorce. After 50 decades in business I appreciate doing business with people that do exactly what they say they will do. Professionals that possess the experience, expertise, and guidance to help you. Divorce arguably is one the lowest points in people’s lives. Navigating through the emotional, potential financial difficulties, and the anxiety that accompany divorce was at times for me overwhelming. Luis took copious notes during our meetings, telephone calls and texts. Asked me several insightful questions about exactly what I would like to accomplish. And what was the result. Virtually everything that Luis Insignares, Esq and I discussed in terms of what a fair settlement for both parties should be along with the expected outcomes proved true. Word of thanks are simply not enough to describe my experience with Luis Insignares, Esq and the LEI Team. If you are facing a divorce proceeding, this is the first call you want to make!

Luis Insnares is an exceptional lawyer
The Most important thing in my life is my children, and when that was being threatened to be taken away from me, I was forced to seek legal counsel. From the very begining Luis Insignares and his staff answered all my questions and concerns in a very professional and punctual manner. Luis always made himself very accessible to answer any questions I might have and to help put my mind at ease during an extremely stressful time. I always felt like I was heard and he always explained his reasoning behind what he was doing. Luis went beyond his call of duty even if it meant speaking to me after normal business hours, which he did on several occassions. With the help of Mr. Insignares and his staff I was able to have a favorable outcome in court and now can continue to love and invest in my children. I am beyond thankful.

I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your professionalism in and out of the courtroom and your ability to handle opposing counsel's arguments. We still have a ways to go, but the light at the end of the tunnel is appearing brighter. Thank you for all your efforts!

Luis, simply the MOST AMAZING LAWYER EVER!!!
After having a couple consultations with different lawyers in town, I was starting to get very discouraged. I felt that they did not care to understand the complexity of my case. They just wanted to recite a black and white script of FL family law. I felt that they would not fight for what was in the best interest of my child. I was catching up with an old friend and expressed to her my frustrations about the lawyers I had met with. She then referred me to Luis who was a personal friend. She promised me that even though he was a friend, he was a excellent lawyer and highly respected. She assured me, I would not be disappointed!! I was hesitant about spending more money for another consultation, but I made an appointment anyway. Once I met with Luis I knew I came to the right place! I felt instantly comforted that I found the right lawyer to fight for what was in my child's best interest. He took the time to listen and understand the events that had turned our life into a Maury show by the other party. He diffused my anxieties dealing with this highly emotional charged situation. Luis is a force to be reckoned with! He's very strategic and patient. Not to mention he knows his FL law!! He was able to navigate the unique hurdles of my case and devise a plan. I will always be thankful for that day I was referred to Luis. He will never know how much, I appreciate the way he fought for us. He gave us a gift of a new beginning.

Best Family Law Attorney in SW Florida
I hired Luis after my first attorney didn't work out in my divorce case. Luis is a superb listener, cuts to the chase, and man does he KNOW FLORIDA LAW! Luis' personable style, exceptional interpersonal skills, and litigation EXPERIENCE make him a cut above his peers. Luis preservers and thinks outside the box while always making sure that the client's best interests are not only served but protected from unforeseen potholes. I recommend Luis wholeheartedly and would never hesitate to hire him again. His sage advice is invaluable. He is a man of values and ethics who really cares about his clients. His steadiness and calm resolution got me what I wanted in my divorce property settlement without having it appealed. I would hire Luis Insignares again and recommend him highly. He is the best Family Law Attorney in Florida!

Luis Insignares ENDED my LIFETIME ALIMONY
Unfortunately 9 years ago I went through a very nasty divorce. In the final ruling from the Judge my ex wife was giving the house paid in full, she did not assume any of the over $1 million in family debt and most importantly she was given lifetime alimony at a rate higher then the expect 50 percent of our previous married income. In addition, she received every month her child support and an extra $400 thousand in equalizer payment. I can also tell you I was ordered to pay all attorney fees both for her side and mine. What I have failed to mention is the original divorce took 3 year to finalize but she continued to litigate for the entire last 9 years on a variety of issues which are to vast to mention. Yes I paid every penny of the attorney fees, accountant fees and all associated litigation costs. How does this happen? Welcome to Florida divorce court. Where the Judges have a loose set of guildlines to follow and subjectivity is the rule. Now let us get to the issue. Lifetime alimony for most of us is hard to comprehend. Most think yes it is money to help the kids. Wrong, that is child support which has nothing to do with alimony. This is monies given from one ex spouse to another monthly for a lifetime. Notice I wrote ex spouse not ex husband to ex wife because a woman can surely pay to her ex husband. Now in same sex marriage one will pay for the other. Next common thought. Lifetime alimony ends at retirement or if your income drop. Wrong on both counts. Florida takes the definition of lifetime to its literal end, meaning, you pay until you or or your ex spouse dies. Can it be modified? Yes but that also may take more than a year to get to a judge and a great deal of litigation fees. Try that when your income is falling. Could the spouse remarry and end lifetime alimony? Yes, but the rarely do if they are receiving a fortune every month. They (ex spouses) seem to find it better to have a boyfriend or girlfriend and not give up a lifetime of money. Here is a little math fact to contemplate. I was married very young at 20. I filed for divorce at 36. We were together at least in legal name for 16 years. If I live to 72 I will pay more than double the years of alimony than I was married. Great deal of your receiving the money. I felt like I was trapped. A Florida law created Florida Judge mandated life time slave. It affected every aspect of my life. Not just the financial but the emotional knowledge and stress of always being attached to someone I had wanted nothing to do with anymore. No matter what life choice I may contemplate I first had to decide if I could afford my alimony. Remember the first person paid from you check every month is your former spouse. Why you may ask is because they send you to jail if you do not. That is when I met Luis Insignares. He could see the injustice. He could see the pain. He accessed the situation and created a plan to fix it. I am happy to say he did. I am done with l lifetime alimony. It is not just the money it is the emotional freedom. It is knowing I cannot be dragged back for unending litigation. I divorced because of numerous poor acts on the part of my ex spouse. Paying every month makes it hard to forget. It is an ugly reminder of the reasons you left. Everyone needs closure to move on and heal. Now I have mine thanks to Luis.

Extreme high conflict divorce case
I was on my second attorney in my high conflict divorce case and I felt my attorney wasn't able to help as things weren't progressing the way nor the timeframe I was expecting. I was referred to Luis and I was so excited to meet and have him get me where I needed to get. Immediately after I hired him, he did just that. He is amazing. He took my case on full force and understood exactly the type of person we were dealing with in the courtroom. He has a lot of knowledge and uses his people skills along with his connections to make the best well rounded case possible. I appreciated the updates, the personable team he has, and I would refer him to anyone who would ask me. He was my third attorney for my divorce and looking back, lets just say third time is a charm.

Divorce... A Pleasure?
My recent divorce, let's just say was not a high point in my life. The myriad twists and turns, the attendant anxiety, along with the guilt, remorse and uncertainty that accompany the end of a 33 year union can be depressing to say the least. Luis E Insignares came highly recommended from another attorney that I respect. From the initial consultation, preparing and submition of documents, coaching for mediation and court, Luis' insight and strategy were exemplary. Nearly everything I was told would happen, happened! Also, his supporting cast, The LEI Team were also terriffic ("birds of a feather..."). In short, if you have to go throught the process, I believe. Luis' Firm sets the bar. In short, this is where you want to start!

A Successful Conclusion to a Complicated Shared Parenting Case
After pursuing a just resolution in several states with several attorneys, we turned to Mr Insignares. He showed exceptional insight in his assessment of the issues and proved to be a brilliant strategist. He was objective in his assessment of possible outcomes, encouraging us to be reasonable in our expectations. Concomitant with his legal skills was his personal kindness and understanding. We always left him feeling secure and confidant. The conclusion of our case satisfied all our hopes! That would never have happened without him. We thank him and we recommend him with complete confidence.

Formidable to his opponenets, compassionate to his clients
Many divorces are not easy, and mine has been anything but simple. However, for as complicated and messy as a case that I brought Luis, he has made every step of the process as gentle as it could be. He has not only proven himself to be competent, effecient, and affective in the courtroom, he has also managed to be an excellent friend and confidant. I have referred many friends in my personal life to Luis because I trust him to treat them with compassion and respect. Luis has a deep and broad knowledge of family law and has served me and many others I know exceptionally well. I also have many attorney friends and through them, I have learned that Luis holds the same respect in our community. He is formidable to his opponenets yet gracious and giving to his clients. Any person going through the unfortunate experience of family law issues would benefit from Mr. Insignares' expertise.

Excellent and Efficient
Luis is amazing! I had an attorney previous to Luis and nothing seemed to bet getting accomplished. My life was extremely stressful feeling as though even after been divorced 5 years earlier (we were not on speaking terms with a son and a marital home still to sell) I felt as though we were still battling constantly. Life felt rough! Luis and his team have been a godsend to me and my family!! Since being with Luis he has not only defended me but he also listens to my concerns and reassures me we will get through this together and HE DOES! He is true to his word! His entire staff is courtesy and professional! Barbara and TJ, I give 5 stars to also!! I will never have any other attorney!! Go meet them, I guarantee you will feel the same way also! Thank you Luis for everything!

The best monetary investment I've ever made was to hire Luis as my attorney...
I hired Luis after extensive research and several consultations with other attorneys. I was not disappointed. Luis was incredibly compassionate and understanding about the circumstances I was facing. He was the first attorney I spoke with who gave me hope that the divorce and custody outcome I desired was possible. He encouraged me and challenged me to do things that would not only help me prepare for my case but that would help me to overcome past trauma and become a better parent and overall human being. In a recent meeting to discuss an award at work that I am to receive at a national conference later this fall, my boss was commenting on just how much she had noticed both my personal and professional growth over the past several years. I know in my heart that a huge part of that can be attributed to Luis. His advice and recommendations during our two plus years together as attorney-client have helped to mold and shape me into a stronger, more confident version of my former self. When I have told people my story, their first reaction is often one of shock or pity. I quickly jump in to correct them. While I wouldn't knowingly choose to go through what I went through again, I wouldn't change the outcome for anything in the world. A large part of that outcome can be attributed to Luis and his fabulous team. I not only consider Luis a fabulous attorney, I consider him now a friend. Divorce and custody battles are never easy. But you have a choice of who you want to walk with you through the process and stand beside you in court. I wholeheartedly recommend adding Luis to your team. It is the best investment you will ever make for yourself, your children, and your future.

Best Attorney Ever!
Luis Insignares has been my attorney for over a decade. He not only managed my divorce in 2005, he later followed through and helped me with a custody issue in 2015. He never left, he was not just about the money and fully supported me from beginning to end. When times were tough, hectic and very stressful, Luis showed me his true talent in helping me cope with my issues, but he also gave me the comfort and common sense advice that I needed. I highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of an attorney for their divorce or those difficult custody situations. If anyone needs further information, I am available anytime at (239) 229-5829. Kindest regards, Matt

Hire Luis to help you through a divorce
Luis was very supportive, understanding and caring of my situation. He stood by my family and followed through to the end. His entire staff and team was all there to support us as we went through this trying season in life. I was blessed to have him as my lawyer. He was organized, prepared and always on time. He tried his best to explain confusing legal terms to me. Luis is not just a paper pusher and you are not just another file on his desk.

Professional Appellate Attorney
I cannot express the outstanding level of knowledge and professionalism Mr Insignares and his staff exhibit. He is a realistic attorney able to uphold morals and represented my best interest all along. His Appellate skills are phenomenal, leading to a victory of our appeal. I cannot say enough about him, his skills and knowledge of Family Law. I consider myself blessed to have had him represent me and prevail in the best interest of my son.

I was so pleased with Mr. Insignares
I was so pleased with Mr. Insignares. While our International Hague case was uphill I was very impressed with how quickly Mr. Insignares understood the critical facts, how quickly he assembled a diverse and competent team and how quickly a legal and practical strategy was developed. We executed that strategy and it is my impression that the legal research, the quality of the intellectual logic and the practical verbalization of it all is of very high quality. Mr. Insignares also worked very well with the team in London.

A very caring attorney, who definitely puts his client first.
I found Luis Insignares to not only a very knowledeable attorney, but a very caring one as well. At our first meeting he tried to persuade me to try and work things out with my husband and even gave me a counselors number. That truly impressed me, as that showed he was a very caring person. Mr. Insignares kept me informed of all my rights and treated me with honesty and respect at all times. On our visits together he was always sympathetic and patient with my emotions involving the breakup of my family. However, he put me first in the divorce and I am financially secure today because of him. I highly recommend him to anyone going through the tradegy of divorce, as they would be blessed by his compassion. He is a kind upstanding man, and doesn't forget his clients.

Luis Insignares
I hired Mr. Insignares, he ask for a $5000.00 reainer. To help me with my divorce. He did everything but help. WORST MISTAKE EVER. He gave horible advice and did nothing to protect me and my hard earned money from the corrupt world of family law in Florida. Unfortunatly i was naive as he continued to take my money for 3 years. Until we FINALLY went to trial. But as the trial began he told the judge he could not continue because he was not emotionally able. The judge let him have a extension. He then quickly filed to quit the case. The judge let him quit. What a joke, I couldn't beleive it. I had to hire another attorney to get my divorce. I wish Mr. Insignares would of done a great job and I could recommend him with a 5 star rating. He gets 0 stars!

Family Attorney | May 16
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Although he was opposing counsel on a difficult case, I learned a great deal about the best way to approach an uncontested dissolution of marriage case. As a relatively new lawyer, I seldom get to see the best of the best as opposing counsel. I used what I learned on our case to later save several of my own clients a great deal of time and money. I consider Luis the best in the area in family law and using the best procedural techniques needed to advance a case forward."
Family Attorney | May 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Luis is one of the most professional, ethical, knowledgeable, and excellent litigator I know. Although an aggressive opponent I am sure, Luis never fails to remember that every party is an important person to be treated with respect and dignity. A true lawyer's lawyer."
