Mr. Esposito is as professional and diligent as he is compassionate and communicative!
Upon hiring Mr. Esposito to represent me in my child support/custody case, I was immediately put at ease with his desire to truly help me. Never once were unrealistic expectations made, nor did he keep me in the dark. I had to commute from San Antonio, TX to Baton Rouge, LA for all visitations and hearings. With Mr. Esposito’s hard work and expertise I was able to bring my son home for one solid week at a time, pay fair child support, and put my mind at ease on what may happen to my ability to see my son. I cannot thank Mr. Esposito enough, and I give him my highest endorsements!

A very compassionate and hardworking/dedicated lawyer!!
Dean is a very hardworking, compassionate, dedicated, and straight forward lawyer. We hired for grandparents visitation/rights and for an unhealthy intrafamily adoption annulment which was successful. Dean went above and beyond his duty for these accomplishments and we recommend him very highly.

Very Pleasant
I reached out to Dean on a legal matter and he got back to me quickly. I contacted Dean about what i was facing and he gave me advice that really helped me. You can definitely tell that he does not do his job for the money. He genuinely wants to help people. If I were to need a Family Law Attorney he’s definitely my go to.

BEST LAWYER
Dean is a very approachable lawyer, who is straight to the point on the issues or situations dealing with your case. He answered every question and concern dealing with our custody case. If he isn't in his office he ALWAYS got back to you in a timely manner. He truly put his heart into his cases and takes the time to find out any answers or next steps you have to take. Our case was different because it dealt with a custody situation between two states. He will give you guidance and encouragement when it is appropriate. Dean is truly is an AMAZING lawyer and he helped my family during the MOST DIFFICULT time in our lives.

Best lawyer in Louisiana!!!!
When i read Dean’s reviews online I wondered could he get the job done for me as he did for the other people who left reviews online. I hired Dean based off his reviews on avvo.com and people called him a real life hero, Well I'm here to say this man is a blessing to my life!!! Ultimately i thank God but secondly i thank Dean for his Hard work in representing me. He fought tooth and nail with the other lawyer to prove my case and made me very happy! Im not from Louisiana im from out of state and from the moment i talked to him he made me feel comfortable and not like a paycheck! I have a lot of respect for Dean and I recommend Him to anyone from out of state who needs a Louisiana family law lawyer and anyone who stays in Louisiana! He is the best of the best hands down! Thank you Dean!!!

Real Hero
From the first time I met Mr. Esposito, I knew I was in the best hands! When I finally retained him, he made me feel safe, from working with me financially to every last detail in getting the most out of my divorce, community property, child custody, and child support. He has also represented me in a motor vehicle accident, getting me the maximum benefit and most recently in an insurance litigation. If you need representation, THIS IS YOUR REAL LIFE HERO!

Child Custody
From the moment I walked onto Attorney Deans office and shared my concern, he went to work for me in my child custody case. He kept me posted every step of the way and in the end "We Won", not just the first time but "Everytime" I was confronted with an issue. Attorney Dean is very genuine and loyal to his clients, dedicated to getting the job done. If you're looking for an Attorney who's going to fight for you, "He's Your Man". Steven

Highly Recommended
I reside in Mississippi and was in need of a lawyer for a child custody case in Baton Rouge area. I found Mr. Esposito and contacted him through avvo.com. He responded to my questions very quickly. Upon meeting Mr. Esposito I decided to retain him for my case. I was very pleased with Mr. Esposito's professionalism during the court process and the outcome of my case was everything I hoped for. I am so pleased with the legal services of Mr. Esposito, I have decided to retain him for my upcoming child support hearing.
