I hired Mr. Schipani for my divorce and custody proceedings, and without question he will fight for you and more importantly your child's rights as well. My case has been more than a challenge to say the least. Phil has always been available to answer my call and address questions and concerns day or night, week and weekends. He is absolutely one of the most compassionate and caring attorneys I've ever come across! He knows the laws and will use what ever means available to aid you in getting the results you and your child/children deserve. Could not ask for better representation. If you want to hire someone who knows their stuff, cares about you and your situation, and your child then look no further! Hire Phil, you will not be disappointed he's not afraid to do what is right no matter how big the mountain to climb! However, downside is he is a Hokies and Hurricanes fan through in through! Better than a Gators fan though! Thanks for everything big guy! Honestly though, Phil is one of those few genuinely caring individuals you meet in life which I believe is rarity! You're the best!

When my ex husband and I decided to divorce, I contacted Mr. Schipani, he was able to consult with me the very next day. Mr. Schipani was very professional and explained things to help me understand the process. After hiring Mr. Schipani the process moved very quickly. He kept in communication with me and ensured me throughout the entire process that the things my ex was threatening to take from me (car, house, kids) would not happen, or at least would not happen the way my ex (who's in law enforcement) was saying they would. All because of the way Mr. Schipani handled mediation, I was able to keep my car, the house, and majority custody of the children. I appreciate all of the time and effort Mr. Schipani put into my case and eased my emotional pain by communicating with me through the entire process.

I have to agree with Stay Away. Mr S is definitely the most non-aggressive attorney to represent you. He even itemized on his billing that it was for "attendance in court" - definitely not representation at all. I honestly believe he didn't even read the documents prior to court. And yes, he was always late. He even failed to register with the court and we showed up for a court date that was cancelled, but because they didn't know who the lawyer was we wasted hours waiting. He gave inaccurate information to the judge and we had to speak up and correct it. The final blow was after we ended up paying retroactive daycare expenses for the months WE had taken care of the child and she wasn't even enrolled in daycare, Mr. Schipani's reply was "Well, he should never have had a child with her (the wife) in the first place." Oh yes, and he failed to record all checks that we gave him. Make sure you pay with a credit card that will help you get back your money if need be. And always ask for an itemized bill. Ask a month later and the bill will have changed - different services, different fees.

Mr. Schipani handled an adult adoption for us with compassion and professionalism. He managed all of the court documents and made this process so easy for us. Mr. Schipani explained each step of the process and listened to our questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Mr. Schipani's services to anyone needing a highly qualified and kind attorney.

I was in a child custody battle with a woman who was just ruthless. She hired an attorney that was even more ruthless and her family was paying all of her attorney fees so she didn’t care whether or not the action went to court. I begged her on multiple occasions to just fill out a parenting plan with me but her only response was “I’ll see you in court”. Her whole case was based on lies. Her demands were ridiculous and her only goal was to hurt me.
I interviewed 6 attorneys before hiring Philip Schipani. When other attorneys were making remarks like “maybe” and “hopefully”, Phil’s attitude was “why not more?” He took the time to completely understand my situation and fought in my best interest. Most of all, he kept me from saying or doing anything stupid that could hurt my case.
Phil was able to draw up a settlement agreement in which we both came out on top. We were able to avoid a lengthy trial and I actually ended up getting more than I hoped for in the end. My child support payment is a fraction of what it could have been and if she ever decides to get a job she will have to pay me child support!
Thank you Phil!

I visited several different lawyers before choosing Phil. He was very professional & responsive. He handled my divorce in an appropriate amount of time and I was pleased with the results. I feel he was honest, attentive, & diligent. He was very kind and matter of fact, making my situation easier to tolerate!

After the sudden and unexpected death of my dear mother, I had to face Florida probate court. I did not know what to do or where to start; and I no longer lived in Florida. I know I could not deal with my mother’s affairs alone. A friend told me to contact Phil Schipani. I was not even sure what to ask or exactly what I needed, but Mr. Schipani handled everything for me. He took a load off of me when I really needed the help of a professional who understood exactly what I needed when I did not know myself. If you feel like you are sinking in legal quicksand, call Phil Schipani.

Phil is absolutely the best lawyer I have used.. hands down! He is kind, caring, honest, and most importantly very personable. He was available to answer all my questions and was very understanding of concerns that I had. He definitely made the divorce process MUCH easier for me! I recommend him to everyone I know.

I hired this worthless attorney in effort to secure and present solid evidence I had obtained concerning FRAUD discovered AFTER my divorce with my former wife along with her subordinating attorney, Sari Reegler. After Reegler threatened Schipani with sanctions for frivolous, merit less claims, ( because she knew what I now had for evidence would certainly open up a can of fraudulent worms and shed bright light on the fraudulent financial affidavits filed by the ex wife with Reegler knowing full well that her client, Kim Gauvreau of West Coast Reality and her self would face jail time) if what I had now discovered could of been presented. But due to a judge McDonald refusing to hear what I had to convey and allow me to also present THE witness that would also confirm the fraud; not to mention a long standing and on going adulterous relationship with Pino Gambo, her now present business partner, THIS CASE HAS YET TO BE RESOLVED!! When this threat of sanctions came up from Reegler and Kim Gauvreau, this fine attorney of mine tucked his tail between his legs, made settlement with Reegler and left me having to pay ALL COSTS INVOLVED...PAY BOTH SIDES OF ATTORNEY FEES, ABSORB THE ENTIRE MARITAL DEBT, PAY BOTH LUMP SUM AND PERIODIC ALIMONY AND ALL EXPENSES INCLUDING COURT COST!!!!!!!! ALL DUE TO LIES, DECEIT, FRAUD AND A TOTALLY INCOMPETENT PHILIP SCHIPANI!! I WILL HAVE MY DAY IN COURT, WHERE A JURY WILL NOW DECIDE KIM GAUVREAUS FATE AND REEGLERS SUBORDINATION..

Phil handled my divorce. I was married for 20 years and the divorce was sudden. I found Phil to be highly responsive and very knowledgeable. His free consultation alone helped me immeasurably in understanding my situation and calibrating my thinking. He put me at ease and we collaboratively developed a sound game plan. I found Phil to be easily accessible and very forthcoming and candid on outlining my options and potential consequences. His rates were consistent with the market. My divorce was handled in a very timely and professional manner. In addition, Phil recently handled my child care modification. It has now been 4 years and my life has improved immeasurably and I thank Phil for helping me get a new lease on my life
