Many people ask me why I wanted to be an Attorney.

It is a simple answer - It is what I always wanted to do.  Everyone deserves a voice in a matter.  That voice should be compassionate and realistic.  That voice should explain to you what is going on in plain English.

I went back to school later in life.  I graduated with Honors, but the most important part of my journey was being a research assistant.  Part of my job was to keep the first year students on track to succeed in Law School.  I am proud to say that almost all of them were able to improve their skill sets and go on to successful careers.  Many times all it took was a little guidance to understand the process.

I bring to the table a knowledge of the law and the commitment to explain to you what is going on in language you can understand. 

If this is what you are looking for in an Attorney, you found it.

Take a look at my client reviews and you will see I do things differently...

The Absolute BEST Probate Lawyer in Spring Hill, FL and Brooksville, FL
I cannot say enough good things about Attorney Louis Okun. My father died and I went to see his lawyer. I told him that family members had cleaned out my dads safe, took all of his cash and all his personal effects. He seemed unfazed and then told me not to worry about paying the outstanding mortgage. Now I know why he doesn’t allow any of his reviews to be posted here. Louis Okun came highly recommended but after the experience with my fathers lawyer I asked around. All I got were positive reviews and his clients consistently gave him 5 stars. I called his office and left a message. He promptly called me back and said that he needed to look over the whole situation. I told him I have to work during the week of which he said, no problem, and said he would set family time aside to meet with me. After listening to me for a minute, he said stop. We have many many issues here and we need to resolve them one at a time. He asked me to contact my fathers lawyer to have a copy of the will deposited. When I asked my fathers lawyer to do this, he said he didn’t have time and I could email him for any further information. Fast forward, Louis Okun handled the probate from start to finish. He recovered the missing assets and handled the additional creditors claims expediently. Whenever I called, he promptly returned my call and explained what was going on in detail. Throughout the litigation to recover the assets and preserve them for all of us he kept saying – “Your dads wishes that all of his children split equally.” When the dust settled, that was exactly what happened. I could not have asked for a better lawyer to see me thru this difficult time. If you are looking for a lawyer who does it right the first time, explains what is going on in plain english, will return your calls, and charges fairly this is your lawyer. Remember, if a lawyer will not post his client reviews here, run!

Very Responsive Real Estate Attorney
I contacted Mr. Okun about some real estate legal issues for a property located in Hillsborough County. He was extremely responsive and very knowledgeable. He was also able to provide some great referrals in other areas where I needed help. Highly recommend.

Review
Mr. Okun is the only attorney who “personally”returned my phone call and emails. I can honestly say that he is the only attorney that I have had the pleasure of communicating with that actually talked directly to and with me but never down to me regarding my concerns. He took the time to “explain” the law to me regarding my situation. He is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate to the needs of others. Mr. Okun is one of utmost integrity and excels in his field. He is an attorney that sets the example of what an attorney should be. I highly and gladly would recommend him to others.

Trustworthy, honest and to the point
Louis is one of a kind, not many lawyers left like him. He’s honest, concise and will give his client the best representation possible. He is always quick to find the information I request, allows me to ask questions until I feel comfortable with where we are at. I couldn’t imagine going with any other lawyer.

Plain spoke and astute.
I hired Mr. Okun to help me with a mixed-use property issue I was facing. He looked at the particulars of my situation and put me on a correct path to avoid some pitfalls that I might otherwise have been subject to. Additionally, he helped me file the necessary estate paperwork so my family wont lose my property in the event of my death. Mr. Okun is direct and adept at breaking through legal brickwork to get to the salient points of what needs to be done and then he sees it through.

Executing a complex estate
I called Mr. Okun with questions about the distribution of my late father's estate, which involved some complex issues with both Medicaid and VA. Although he was unable to take my case, he did take the time to offer advice based on his knowledge and expertise, and it was greatly appreciated. Not many attorneys would do so without being formally retained.

I called the office seeking more information on a matter that I had little information about. Louis was extremely professional and helpful. I didn’t end up requiring his assistance but he will be the first one I call when I need helps in the future.

Awesome Lawyer
Louis has that rare ability to explain complicated matters in an understandable way while not losing any pertinent information in the translation. His ability to grasp the financial aspects (he's also a CPA) of the legal problem is a great help. He is generous with his time and legal information and his empathy is a nice change from the cold, just-the-facts type of legal professional one usually finds. And he is an animal lover! So far I have only had a consultation but I will hire him.

Honest!!
After leaving a brief message at the office of Louis Okun, he contacted me that same day and we scheduled a conference for the following day. After telling Mr. Okun what I needed he explained my options and the best way he thought I should proceed. I was impressed with his knowledge, honesty and appears to be dedicated to his work. I also like the fact he did not pressure me to make an immediate decision and suggested I take my time and speak with family members before proceeding any further. Although I did not retain Mr. Okun at this time I will definately contact him to handle my legal matters.

Fabulous Representation
Louis represented us in a situation where a negligent driver created significant property damage and failed to provide complete information. Not only did he do the legwork to obtain the required insurance information, he negotiated with the insurance company to recover more than twice what we originally expected.
