I am continually stunned by the effects of E. Christopher DeSantis as he continues to not only win cases but crush opposing counsel(s) in one fell swoop. It is the most mesmerizing sight any person should behold. With no room for error E. Christopher DeSantis is keen in his abilities to foresee any road that opposing counsel(s) may travel down and is prepared for same. E. Christopher DeSantis is an intuitive empath which serves him well. E. Christopher DeSantis was in court for a REPLEVIN case; his client was the defendant. Opposing counsel gave his self-serving, lie twisting, half truth opening statement and then calls his client (Plaintiff) to the stand. Opposing immediately submitted into evidence an order from 2011 denying his client’s motion for return of property. E. Christopher DeSantis then reiterates what opposing counsel said about the denial from 2011 and then introduces the signed document from that 2011 Judge. E. Christopher DeSantis doesn’t stop there; he introduces the Plaintiff’s Financial Affidavit for 2011 where he lists no such property as an asset. The presiding Judge stated he’s stepping off the bench while evidence was marked for the rest of the hearing. The Judge returns approximately 30 minutes later stating that he: STOPPED CASE IN FAVOR OF DEFENSE BASED ON RES JUDICATA; due to the mere 3-4 questions asked and evidence submitted by E. Christopher DeSantis to the Plaintiff. E. Christopher DeSantis won for his client and attorney fees awarded. Another FABULOUS win by E. Christopher DeSantis and another satisfied client who will remain his client for all legal purposes as needed.

Mr. DeSantis time and time again is relentless in his pursuit of injustice being done to his clients and takes all cases personally. Mr. DeSantis is more learned than most Judges. I have had the awesome privilege watch Mr. DeSantis singlehandedly take down 4 attorneys at ONE time. Their tag teaming efforts failed miserably. This was not lost on the judge presiding over the case. Mr. DeSantis can only be compared to the “Hulk” in the courtroom. While knowing Mr. DeSantis and recognizing the satire of the emulation it is, without a doubt, a truism. Mr. DeSantis is quiet and moves like a stealthy prowl of a lion and packs the same “punch.” Mr. DeSantis often drives his knowledge of the law into the faces of those less than superior to him. Observing Mr. DeSantis watching other attorneys squirm and turn red when he “joyfully” explains the statutes that any first year law student would/should know he shrugs off with a slight grin. Mr. DeSantis runs the courtroom and leaves many in disbelief and scurrying around like field mice. Mr. DeSantis is never to be underestimated. Mr. DeSantis does not play political games nor does he want to be “one of the boys.” Mr. DeSantis should be living life in the fast lane but because of his true life convictions he works tirelessly for the less fortunate. Mr. DeSantis deserves every accolade he gets as they are all well deserved! I will continue to use Mr. DeSantis as my legal advisor on every case I have. It is with great thanks and trust in Mr. DeSantis that keeps me coming back.

I was a client of Christopher Desantis for my divorce case. In my situation I was accused of child abuse. Christopher, having working for the DCF in the past, knows ALL the Florida laws pertaining to these types of cases. To make a long story short, Mr. Desantis won our case and now I am enjoying an equal time share with my child, AND he was able to get my exwife to pay me for child support. He did an outstanding job and I highly recommend him, especially if there are abuse accusations being made.

E. Christopher DeSantis is an attorney who treats you as if you are his only client. A man passionate about the law, the truth in justice, and will not cease in the pursuit of exposing the truth. Mr. DeSantis has worked tirelessly and with great enthusiasm on my case. Mr. DeSantis does not only look at the present situation but the future as well and prepares his case not just for the "now" but for the future. Mr. DeSantis with clarity of conviction paves the path for the future. Mr. DeSantis is secure in his abilities to successfully win cases and is not concerned about offending the political minions. Mr. DeSantis exposes unlawful behavior on opposing counsel and their client(s). Mr. DeSantis is extremely protective of my rights afforded to me by the Constitution of the United Sates and the law. Mr. DeSantis exposes deceitful, underhanded manipulative tactics used to paint his client as a villain and thus exposing opposing counsel’s slanderous campaign of fraud on the court to the court. Mr. DeSantis is an “out of the box” attorney and therefore you get more than a “cookie cutter” attorney who can miraculously interpret opposing counsel’s next move and is prepared for same. Mr. DeSantis is meticulous in the preparation of his cases and brings the same confidence to the court. Mr. DeSantis is relentless in his pursuit of justice with a dogged determination that is unparalleled to any other known attorney. I will continue to use Mr. DeSantis in all matters concerning the law.

I have been working with Chris Desantis on my divorce for four months now. It has been a surprisingly pleasant experience, although I never thought I'd say that about divorce, and has greatly exceeded my expectations. I was extremely stressed going into the divorce, not knowing how it all worked or what to expect, but Chris has educated me throughout this process which helps to reduce my stress and gives me confidence. Chris goes out of his way to be available to me, he even spoke to me three times on Christmas to give legal advice over a time sharing dispute. He listens attentively to my concerns and I feel that he cares about me and my children , and that this is much more than just a job to him.
His expertise in taxes was helpful in my case and I feel that he is quite skilled in handling divorce. He has been very aggressive and on top of things, and I would describe him as very thorough and proactive.
I would definitely recommend Chris as a family law attorney. I believe we will maintain a friendship after my case is over, and that I would use him again in the future if I needed.

Chris handled a case for me which I was being accused of slander and liable. We settled out of court and Chris remained professional throughout all negotiations and we came to a mutually beneficial settlement.

Mr. DeSantis has represented myself, my husband, my daughter and now represents my dad and my stepmom. He's handled all of the small claims, civil litigation, child support, criminal and appellate issues for my family for the last 7 years. He is invaluable when it comes to an attorney with the knowledge necessary to handle complex issues. His ability to think outside of the box and come up with new arguments to win a case is amazing. His litigation skills in the presence of the judge/magistrate are great. He is not here to make friends, he's here to represent his client. I've seen him argue with a judge who did not know the correct law, which most attorneys are afraid to do. In our case, he's succeeded in every single case we've had and achieved the results we wanted.
His fees are very reasonable and he doesn't pad his billing. He is also helpful when it comes to arrangements with payment. Although I work for a great lawyer, I've trusted Mr. DeSantis to so many of my cases, I couldn't imagine letting anyone else represent us.
