ABOUT JOHN 2018-03-19T15:01:11+00:00


Don’t even think of calling him just a “litigator.” “Litigators are people who sit around in a conference room and negotiate,” says Attorney John DeGirolamo. “Sure I can do that with the best of them, but Trial Lawyers– they go to court. That’s what I do.”  He’s not just “a criminal lawyer” or “a business lawyer” or “a family law lawyer” or any other label you try to give him – He does trials. That’s it.

100% dedicated to Husbands and Fathers

My name is John DeGirolamo – I represent Husbands and Fathers in Florida family law proceedings.

In 2013, I was nominated and selected to join the elite National Trial Lawyers of America, and have been recognized for the fifth year in a row as a top 40 under 40 trial lawyer for all of Florida.

When Husbands and Fathers go through a Florida family law proceeding, it’s incredibly difficult to gain equal footing with the way the laws of this State favor wives and mothers. It is just as difficult to find an attorney with the qualifications, experience, and aggressiveness to strongly litigate cases in the family court.

Husbands and Fathers in Florida are the underdog. Husbands and Fathers come to me terrified with thoughts of losing timesharing with their children and having to make financial child support payments. Husbands and Fathers need a lawyer that understands what they are up against in Florida, which is known as a “mother state.”

I’m able to solve issues experienced by Husbands and Fathers because my practice is 100% dedicated to Husbands and Fathers. This means I can provide all the available case options and suggest the strategies that will earn Husbands and Fathers the equal results they deserve.

Since I was a kid, I was put into positions that I didn’t ask for — positions that forced me to stand up for myself and take on the larger foe. Today, I pursue the rights of Husbands and Fathers in the “mother state” of Florida with the same fierce determination that I learned early on in life. It is my heartfelt passion.

My clients say that after I represented them, they walked away feeling like WE just won the fight of THEIR life.
