I retained Dana Laganella’s law firm after researching several attorney’s in the Sarasota and Bradenton area. Her office responded expediently, provided accurate information and was welcoming. From my first encounter to the settlement I found their communication consistent and exemplary.
A lawsuit is a highly stressful situation, and difficult for the lay person to understand at times. Dana and her staff guided me through the process with friendly professionalism. Her encompassing expertise was evident on many occasions. I also noticed that her colleagues held a high regard for her demeanor and knowledge.
Some of my questions and concerns throughout the proceedings might have seemed trivial to Dana and her staff but they patiently helped me understand.
Dana and her staff felt like friends by the time my case was completed. I have had occasion to request information from them in the approximately two years since the case was closed and have continued to receive their trademark service. That tells a lot about the character of the office.
Since my case, I have recommended Ms. Laganella’s office to several friends who required legal assistance. I have heard they are as happy as I was from the service and results received.
Oustanding customer service, sharp legal minds and a consummate effort to satisfy clients — that is what I received from Ms. Laganella’s office.

I have had the opportunity to work with Dana many times over the past few years and have found her to be professional and well versed in her practice areas. Additionally, Dana has brought a high level of customer service to the legal profession which is generally unheard of. I have no hesitation in making referrals to Dana!

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Dana personally for years and have used her for all matters of probate and estate planning. She is highly effective and an excellent communicator. I would recommend her to anyone I know in need of this type of legal service.
