You are probably uncertain about your rights and concerned about child custody, financial ramifications, and how best to protect yourself, your assets, and your family. While you may already be aware that Florida statutes favor mothers and that as a father and a husband, you may already be at a disadvantage, the better prepared you are, and the sooner you seek legal counsel, the better!

8 months after divorce... John was great! We knocked it out quickly with no issues. I had no idea what to expect and he navigated me right through it. He’s great to do business with and knows what he’s doing. Definitely would recommend him.

And when you have decided to hire a professional, don’t waste your time searching for the right Lawyer (I have already done the research for you). John DeGirolamo is an outstanding family lawyer that will represent your rights relentlessly. Regardless if your divorce is amicable or not, he will make sure that fair deal is reached with your spouse.

I Frankie Harris married for four years with a woman who didn’t love me for me, only married me for money and cheated on me when I was outta town working. The divorce process was moving towards my X-wife favor, who later tried to put me on Child support with a baby that wasn’t minds from the start. Later near to the end of my divorce proceedings, family and friends said I needed a lawyer. That’s when I found Mr. John DeGirolamo who later helped me out big time, that man knows his stuff. Very professional and straight to the point/ ready to fight for his clients. Now I’m a free man with no worries, THANK YOU AGAIN.....Mr. DeGirolamo

In Law We Trust greatly exceeded my expectations. I was being bullied to the tune of thousands of dollars. I called John, he told me to fight it. During the pre-trial conference - the team saw something in the agreement and a judge was brought in. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning, the bully can never try it again! Not only did I save thousands, but I got peace of mind, which is more valuable. I trust, In Law We Trust!

Hit hard emotionally by my spouse’s request for a divorce I stumbled chaotically through all the mediation and hearings with my first attorney. Switching my representation to John G DeGirolamo is one choice I will never regret. John is cool, confident, and well informed and will tell you exactly how it is, which helped me make some of the hard decisions that come about during divorce proceedings. I would highly recommend John G DeGirolamo to stand with you through any ordeal that requires representation, I found that he is the best attorney to have on your side.

John and his staff were very aggressive, while maintaining their professionalism in ensuring I received everything that I was entitled to, given that I was the stay-at-home father in a 21-year marriage. I recommend him to anyone looking for quality representation.

Attorney John DeGirolamo has an understanding of my situation, sets realistic expectations, and handles the case professionally and efficiently. His administrative team is responsive and helpful. My case was able to be processed quickly (even through Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic) from filing in March 2020 to trial/final judgement in October 2020. He was able to work through the difficulties of my living situation, being remote in Illinois, and my family situation, being in Florida. I recommend and will refer to others seeking legal advice for family matters. -KO

What can I say John helped me out in a very very bad situation! Well in my thoughts it was a bad situation but everyone is different. Definitely very quick on being responsive. Sharp and really to be honest a no B.S kind of guy. Straight to the point and doesn't have you chase false hopes and false realities. It is what it is. Glad I got him...It definitely definitely could have been alot worse in my case.

John D. was a tremendous divorce lawyer and had my best interests during a difficult time. Divorces can be tough financially and emotionally and John made sure I was up to speed on everything and he definitely had my back during mediation. His team was quick in filing paper work and they made it easy for me to get everything I needed over to them so they could do their part. They picked up every time I called and responded in a very timely and prompt manner every time as well. I would call my outcome "successful" giving the alternatives the ex-spouse was requesting. I ended up in my "best case" scenario and I am thankful for John D. and his team. Thank you again,

John put me at ease instantly on the phone and, after I had spoken to several other attorneys, won my business and my trust. He did not let me down. His staff was very professional and worked with me at times of my choosing. John was personally available, typically within minutes, via text, emails, and phone calls. He never failed to contact me back when I had questions and needed further guidance. His retainer fee was extremely reasonable and he made it very easy to make payments online. Most importantly is that my divorce case went almost 100% as he predicted that it would. We were able to settle the case in mediation and I ever had to go to court. I am completely satisfied with the outcome of my case and am so thankful that I choose "In Law We Trust, P.A. to handle this difficult time in my life.Thanks John, and all of your staff!!!

He helped explain to me what was happening, how to get through it, and all the necessary actions needed to come out on top. Even with COVID going on in the world John was able to work his magic and get the job done! I highly recommend In Law We Trust P.A. to represent you if you’re looking for the best attorney possible.

John and his team were very prompt and helpful. They were able to answer all my questions and always responded right away within minutes of my voice mails, texts, or emails. I used them for my divorce which is now final and I was able to do everything remote thus not having to miss work for face to face meetings. They made a difficult situation for me easier than I thought it would be.

John was amazing and exactly what I needed for my divorce case. I had an attorney prior to hiring John and we spent almost 10 months getting nothing accomplished. I hired John and he resolved the issue of alimony in the first 2 weeks. After that he kept the ball rolling and within 3 months the divorce was finalized.When we started the divorce process my ex wife was determined to take me for everything she could. John helped protect my rights to equal distribution and equal custody. The amount of money spent vs saved was very much worth it. I wish I had found In Law We Trust the first time!Also I was very impressed that every time I reached out to John he was there and responded within minutes, not days or weeks. (even at 10pm)

I am very thankful to have had John on my side throughout a very difficult experience. John surpassed all expectations when it came to knowledge, support and availability. John's confidence and honesty were the most valuable benefits when dealing with the difficult decisions and the ups-and-downs that come along. Many stressful moments can result in short sighted tunnel vision - I thank John for always being accessible to discuss matters frankly, and to better allow for proper decisions to be made. I am so thankful to have worked with John and the entire team at his firm.

Let me begin by saying how thankful I am for the excellent and effective representation I received from John DeGirolamo. John will get you the results you need for your best outcome. He is very quick to respond to your texts, calls, or emails at any time concerning all questions or apprehensions you may have regarding your situation. John will give you honest responses (he will not sugar coat it and tell you what you want to hear) as well as offer solid recommendations regarding the best manner to proceed. He does make it clear though that the ultimate decision on how you proceed is up to you and he will do his best to make whatever you ultimately decide work. His appearance in the courtroom is extremely professional. He understands the law very well and is an effective communicator with the judge as well as opposing counsel so that everyone involved understands they are dealing with a true professional. John's strategy with regards to my situation was so effective that my ex-spouse decided not to proceed. My only regret is that I did not find John sooner and have him represent me in my original divorce proceedings as I am certain John would have gotten me far greater results than the representation I had did. You will not be disappointed if you hire John DeGirolamo. He is definitely a permanent number in my contacts list should any other issues arise. John is truly TOP NOTCH!

I am both grateful and thankful for the work John did with my case. He was thorough and detailed each step of the way. Additionally, John is easily accessible via email and his personal cell phone (at any time of the day - no exaggeration. Our first phone call was at 8:00pm on a weekday.) He made decisions based on my best interest. I would highly recommend John and his team!

I have worked many cases with John DeGirolamo as his investigator and process server. Every case I receive from him, he always puts extreme effort into the best outcome for his clients. I've worked with hundreds of attorneys over the past 10 years, and I can say, John DeGirolamo is one of the best in the bay area.

Tons of thanks go out to you John! Handled my divorce extremely well, while observing and keeping my best interests and opinions in the foreground of the strategy. While not the most complex financial situation in my case, the details and needs of our specific scenario were tough to accomplish and to couldn’t have asked for a better result.Most RESPECTED trait: told me what I need to hear and gave me honest feedback about my hopes and plans with what would actually work (didn’t appease me and waste money filing things that won’t be successful). I felt informed and looked after the entire case.Most SURPRISING trait [for an attorney]: (sorry for profiling and being judgmental to the other attorneys of the world) I must have made 75 short phone calls to him over the course of the case and he never billed me for the time. Never saw one example indicating he was out to acquire a percentage of my percentage. Always felt he was out to get me and my daughter to a better place. Truly acted for me not himself!Most TELLING example of dedication to clients: Expeditiously re-filed paperwork I screwed up on from Paris France only bc of my PREFERENCE (not need) to “file as soon as is reasonable”. 20 min later (at what I can only assume was like 3am across the Atlantic)I didn’t even wait until the case had a judgment rendered before referring my coworker to him for a similar situation. Confidence was that strong.My case is now over and I feel like I got all I could ask for at a minimum investment! Also know that I walked away from this with a great lawyer, but also acquired a friend. It’s rare you see someone have such a vested interest in you and the well-being of your loved ones.Thanks again John!! Can’t say enough about your efforts. Hopefully I don’t... but if I ever need an attorney you’re my guy!

I consulted with a number of attorneys before I called In Law We Trust. From the very first phone call, John was able to put my mind at ease and give me options with my case that I did not know existed. He was always very prompt (even on a Sunday) and professional. He gave me all of my options and explained possible outcomes along the way. We reached an agreement in my family law case and everything was finalized quicker than I could have even imagined. Thanks for all of your hard work! If I ever face another legal matter I know exactly who to call!!

At one of the lowest points in my life of getting a divorce in searching for a divorce lawyer on a weekend getting in touch with John and answering all my questions he made me feel so comfortable and confident that he can work the case and get the results. I have never had a lawyer like John the rapid response at any time is unheard of and I thank him from the bottom of my heart and urge if anyone needs a divorce lawyer to look no further.

FIRM OVERVIEW

Fearless Use of the Court System

Many attorneys fail to use the court system to their client’s advantage, will shy away from a court hearing, and try to convince their clients to settle. In reality, a better outcome is likely found in court, or a better settlement can be negotiated and achieved before a hearing. Our opponents usually fear the courtroom. Court is stressful for attorneys and clients, difficult to predict, and may expose the lesser attorney’s limitations. We excel in the courtroom, and proceed to trial with confidence, expertise, and a commitment to our clients. Attorneys hate to lose, but at In Law We Trust, P.A., we love to win!

Direct Contact

As a client, you deserve direct and frequent communication with your attorneys. In Law We Trust, P.A. is structured so that you will have access to, and be dealing with, a family law attorney for men, not an employee of the attorney. Your concerns are important and your case is always handled in a very personalized manner. You can count on us to be attentive and responsive to your needs.

The Truth, Even When it Hurts

Most attorneys tend to tell people what they want to hear. This is especially true at the beginning of the representation, before the hard work starts. As family attorneys for men in Tampa, FL, we don’t think this is helpful to clients, and in fact, we are sure this approach harms a client’s case. We are not shy about telling our clients what we think they need to do, whether they want to hear it or not. Of course, what to do is up to our clients, but they never lack for strong, helpful guidance. Bottom line: you will get the truth – good, bad, or ugly – from us at all times, because that is what you will need to be successful in this process.
