Separation
My name is Valerie and I had a great experience with K. Dean Kantaras' Law firm. During my marital upheaval I worked with Dean Kantaras as well as few other attorneys from his firm. In addition to providing superb services they are very up front about their fees, costs and expectations about how my situation would unfold. They also have a friendly and helpful staff - they treated me with compassion and empathy, more like a family member rather than just another customer. In today’s “high tech” and “fast paced” society, it was nice to find an office that takes the time to get to know me as a person first in addition to providing excellent services. K.Dean Kantaras' Law Firm is a step above and beyond most offices. I have found my experience with this office to be extremely satisfying and I would recommend them highly to anyone and who needs a competent, honest and understanding attorney.

Was my divorce attorney
Had very good experience with Mr.Kantaras and his office for the past three years - that for how long my pathological divorce was drugging by my x. But Mr. Kantaras & his legal team was helping me in each and every way possible to go thru this very tough times for me. It is not just a high professionalism, what he has, it is also his human personality, which helped to go thru my divorce. Very thankful for that.

Grateful Client
I’m new to the divorce experience & learned that it can be a long, exhausting, costly & emotional process. I feel that it’s my responsibility to bring facts to the table, but I could not accomplish a positive outcome without the knowledge of the law, experience, & integrity of the entire Kantaras Law team. They continue to help me navigate through a very stressful time & the outcome so far has been more than I could have hoped for. I am very grateful for their legal counsel. More to follow.

An Amazing Team!
I hired Dean/Kantaras law based on a family member's recommendation. I am so grateful Dean handled my case. It was a very difficult divorce and Dean and staff always made sure I was taken care of through the process. My outcome was what I had hoped for. So grateful for the Kantaras Law team.

An investment worth every penny...
Dean Kantaras and his entire team were phenomenal, professional and always very prepared. Dean was so far superior to his opposing counsel that it was apparent that he was the superior legal mind. My outcome was exactly what he said it would be and he was exactly right about how things would play out. Listen to him... he knows the law and how to navigate complex legal issues. Highly recommend.

Divorce
My name is Mike and I am a retired Marine. Mr. Kantaras and his entire team to include the front desk are incredibly caring and extremely professional. I was forced into a situation that I determined was best I end for mine and my son's benefit. I was worried going in. I had consultations prior to meeting Mr. Kantaras with other places and they seemed impersonal. I was afraid I'd be judged as in the male is always in the wrong type of way. It was not like that at all. I was treated fairly, professionally, and like a human being not a number or a dollar sign. When they talked to me or asked me questions it was with what I determined to be a genuine sincerity that brought about a feeling of comfort and confidence. I felt an immediate sense of relief after my consultation and continue to feel that way. The entire team talked to me and treated me as if they knew my son and I for years. The entire team has been really supportive and informative. The outcome is still pending however, I have full faith and confidence in Mr.Kantaras and his team. I am confident things will work out for my son and I. I am grateful for their time and expertise. I would recommend them to anyone.....even with my situation still pending. You are a human being to them.

Would hire again...
I would recommend this law firm over anyone in Pinellas County! Diligence and perseverance would best describe my experience with Mr. Kantaras and his legal team. Living in a state where fathers rights are constantly over looked, Mr. Kantaras and his excellent legal team fought and I was awarded permanent sole custody of my son.

Great Divorce Lawyer
He is very knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable with him handling my case. Everyone in the office was always really helpful and super nice. He never forced me to do anything I did not feel comfortable with in my case and really worked for me.

Dean Kantaras review
I had conducted 3 consultations when I decided to retain Mr. Kantaras & I feel I made the best decision. He and his staff are excellent. They have a way of making you feel as calm as possible in the stress of a divorce. Dean always seemed to be 2 steps ahead of opposing counsel & was always willing to make a change if he thought it best for the case. If Dean was unavailable, I felt completely comfortable with Stephanie Libbey stepping in . If u have questions... You can not beat the team of paralegals assigned to your case (Sharon & Nicole in my case were outstanding). And when u call or step thru the door, Nancy is there to greet you with a smile & a kind word... She will get you directed to where ever you need to be. The entire team make you feel that your best interests are being looked out for because they operate with a swagger of confidence, but without the attitude of arrogance that can lead to mistakes. I would recommend this lawfirm to anyone who believes that their divorce is going to anything less than pre agreed upon terms.

My Divorce Attorney
I was referred to Mr. Kantaras' practice by an attorney who I respect. I retained him to represent me in my divorce. I was ending a marriage of many years. I had no knowledge of procedure or the expected course. I was comfortable with Mr. Kantaras from our first consultation. I found him to be sincere, ethical and very capable. My divorce was contested and took twenty two months. I feel that I developed a relationship with Mr. Kantaras, the para legals, the receptionist and various office personnel. At all times I felt my case was handled aggressively. Florida Law and reasonable expectations were explained. The para legals aided me in providing Mr. Kantaras with the necessary documents and finiancial records. Mr. Kantaras represented me through depositions, two mediations and trial preparations. On the morning of the trial, the opposing attorney proposed an offer to settle. I feel Mr. Kantaras was by far the superior of the attorneys. It is my feeling that Mr. Kantaras' strong points are his excellent legal skills and his high legal ethics. I feel that I was well represented and I am happy with the professional services rendered.
