  • I would recommend DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis to anyone for any legal work you need...If they're not able to take care of you, they find someone that will.

    Life Care Plan Mom and dad, the year before we came here moved five or six times because dad wasn’t happy with where we were living, and we reached out here. I forget how. I think we were just driving by and, I'll tell you, that was the best decision we ever made, especially for me because I was still working and taking care of my mom who had Alzheimer's and my dad. You know, it was quite a lot on the plate, I just wish we would had done it ten years before. We would have saved so much money by coming here and getting the kind of help we got. This firm is definitely more like a family. You can't fake caring. You know, I used to be a retail manager. I can train you in all the mechanics, but caring, I can't. You either have it or you don't. You guys have got it. Tammy, Gloria, you know, with Mom and Dad, they were there, especially Rep DeLoach. I mean, I knew he really cared, and Dad, once he met him, that was all he needed. He wanted to go ahead and do it. Just have them to be able to help me with having Gloria visit the Freedom Square, or Brookdale, Seminole, keeping tabs on her when I couldn't, that was awesome. I'll tell you, we were about ready to sell the condo, and we found out if we would have Dad would have lost his VA benefit. I mean, we were at the point where we found a buyer, and if we would have done that, it would have been a major mistake. We didn't even consider putting either Mom or Dad on Medicaid. We found out, yes, for mother, we could put her under Medicaid. There was a lot of things about the law we didn't know. Like Rep said, "It's the things you don't know that hurt you the most." He never spoke such true words, because like the condo, and there were other things like that that, honestly, the normal person's not going to know. You need someone, like a Rep, who knows the law.  Automobile Accident When Dad and I, we were heading to the grocery store on West Bay, and we were getting ready to turn. There was a school crossing the road, so we stopped. The person behind us decided to go around us, and when they saw they couldn't, they came back into the lane and they hit the car. I couldn't believe it. Not only with Paul Cavonis but Rep, everybody stayed in touch with me every step of the way. The communication was excellent. The caring was excellent. How are you doing? How's dad? How's mom? That means a lot. I mean, not just talking business. Again, you can't fake caring. You either do or you don't. They get to know you. You're part of the DeLoach & Hofstra family. There's a lot of lawyers out there, but I'll tell you what, I've recommended people here, and I'll continue to recommend people here because I know whoever I send here will be taken care of just like I was as a part of the family. Caring, follow up, given information every step of the way. That's very important, and I couldn't ask for anything better. I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else. I never dreamed with the car accident that ... I guess it was just an example of went after the person for their maximum on their liability insurance. They didn't even try to negotiate. They just agreed to it. I'm sure it was the communication that Paul gave to them.  I'm just so thankful for Paul and Rep and Tammy and Gloria, everyone, and Ashleigh, everyone here. Honestly, if they needed my help with something, I'm right there. That's how I feel this firm. You're not going to find anybody that knows the law, they specialize in injury, estate planning, to help with title change over to mine. Right then, right after Mother passed away, after Dad, the last thing I was even thinking about was the title. But you guys were thinking about it. You already knew about it. You'd already set up the condo just to roll into my name. I didn't have to do a thing. Believe me, if you're looking for a lawyer, that's what you need because when you go through something like that, it's emotional at best. You're not going to be yourself, and you need someone that's going to be looking after your interests. Paul did, and so did Rep.  I would recommend DeLoach & Hofstra to anyone for any legal work you need. If there's something that they can't handle, which I don't know what they can't handle here, but I know you'd get them the help they need. That's the true remark of any good business. If they're not able to take care of you, they find someone that will. They have the maturity and the understanding and the compassion to know when they need to get someone else. Not every firm's going to do that.

  • A VERY Heartfelt Thank-you for allowing Tammy and Donna to go out and assist my mom this morning.

    Once again I find myself in the position of giving you a VERY Heartfelt Thank-you for allowing Tammy and Donna to go out and assist my mom this morning. I spoke with Tammy and she said it was a productive meeting, but heart-wrenching. I must say, I do not think I could have done it, and if I had been there would not have been much help. Please tell Donna , "Thank you " as well. I am sure it was not the most pleasant start to her day ever. She too is appreciated!

  • Rep has a GREAT Team! They all, Tammy, Joy, Donna, and Gail, are hard working, respect Rep, and are caring individuals.

    Greetings!  My family and I have been a client of DeLoach and Hofstra, Elder Care Service Group, for almost a year.  As this 1 year anniversary approaches, and with Father's Day, this weekend, as the founder of the Law Offices of DeLoach and Hofstra, I wanted to tell you personally how very much Rep, Tammy, and Joy have helped my family. When we first met Rep, in July 2011, my dad was hospitalized, and in and out of a nursing home.  My mother was alone with my mentally retarded brother.  If dad died, she would no longer receive a pension.  If the nursing home consumed all off her "nest egg,” she would be destitute.  In short, it was a dire situation.  Rep and Tammy provided the expertise to get my mother's financial and legal affairs in order.  It was completed efficiently and effectively, with Medicaid being approved!  Joy provided the nursing expertise.  My dad was moved, from [another facility] (which I thought was an awful place), to Tierra Pines. He has received excellent care.  It is a great comfort to know that Joy is available when needed to help insure my dad continues to receive the best possible care. My brother Peter became a client of DeLoach and Hofstra in January, 2012.   Tammy and Rep assisted in working through the maze associated with APD to procure a residential placement with PARC.  In short, the APD system is a Nightmare!!  This was no easy task!!  Tammy attended several meetings with my mother and APD which were highly emotional, and handled them with the utmost professionalism.  I cannot thank Tammy and Rep enough for helping to get Peter placed. Now, as the 2 major crises have been handled, my mom has become one of your clients.   Rep is assisting once again, so that all is in order, and there will be no crises, as mom ages. I am sending this e-mail, because I am sure any dad would want to know what a great job their son has done!  Rep has a GREAT Team!  They all, Tammy, Joy, Donna, and Gail, are hard working, respect Rep, and are caring individuals.  I feel very fortunate to have been referred to your Law Firm.  It has been an experience vastly surpassed by any expectations! Hope you have a great Father's Day!  And thank you for raising such a caring son, who has also become an excellent attorney!

  • You and Judy Matthews helped make a difficult time much easier than it might have been.

    Dear Mr. DeLoach, On behalf of my family, I would like to extend a sincere thanks for the prompt and professional way you handled my brother Brendan’s estate. You and Judy Matthews helped make a difficult time much easier than it might have been. Your efforts on our behalf are sincerely appreciated.

  • You made it possible for my father to live his remaining months in comfort, and with no financial concerns.

    Dear Rep: I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you and Tammy for all that you did for my father in his time of need. As you will recall, when I came to you for assistance, my father was legally blind, diabetic, and had just had his right leg amputated. His monthly medical bills were staggering and his life savings were being depleted rapidly. Not only were you instrumental in assisting with his legal affairs, such as his Medicaid application, but did so in a kind and caring way. It was a relief to my family and I that we no longer had to worry about my father’s finances or what the future would bring. You made it possible for my father to live his remaining months in comfort, and with no financial concerns. In addition, when Dad did pass, Tammy comforted my family and was there to help with the settling of his final affairs. I am quick to refer your firm to my clients with similar needs. Thank you again.

  • Out of all the firms I could have selected I was very lucky to have chosen DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis.

  • On each and every occasion, these guys were fantastic.

    "DeLoach and Hofstra, P.A. has helped me on many occasions with various legal matters. When I had a case involving construction litigation, Paul Cavonis took charge and really helped me out. When I had a closing, I was represented by Peter Hofstra and when I needed a will, I went to Rep DeLoach. On each and every occasion, these guys were fantastic. I recommend them to my family and friends. I've known them for 8 years or more now and wouldn't use any other lawyer. They say what they do and do what they say. They are very trustworthy."

  • Thank you for guiding me through this unexpected (what could've been) nightmare!

    "Dear Dennis, Judy, Jill, and Jane, Thank you for guiding me through this unexpected (what could've been) nightmare! I would bet my life that no other law firm would or could have been more efficient, friendly, and most of all more patient! You gave me sunshine when my days were cold through this whole process! I might sound a bit corny but I am most sincere in saying so. Your firm will remain in my heart forever."

  • I'd highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs an honest, aggressive attorney.

    Mr. Angelo O. of Largo was badly injured in an auto accident at the intersection of Ulmerton and Belcher Roads in 2005. The accident forced him to have back surgery. He was represented by Attorney Paul Cavonis. Suit was filed in the case and the matter settled a few weeks after a successful mediation. "I was very pleased with Paul's work. He's an honest guy. He says what he means. Everything I've ever asked him to do he's done and done well. I'd highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs an honest, aggressive attorney."

  • Your team, particularly Karen, was unbelievably professional, conscientious, flexible and accommodating

    Mr. Hofstra I apologize for the the tardiness of this long over due email, things got hectic in the months after closing and I have neglected to reach out to express the gratitude that you deserve. Thank you for all your help. The guidance and advice that you have provided me was extremely helpful and comforting knowing that I had someone in my corner of the ring to represent my best interests. Your team, particularly Karen, was unbelievably professional, conscientious, flexible and accommodating as we rushed to get things closed on my condo in August. Not only that, your flexibility and generosity on the billings was unexpected, but certainly did not go unnoticed. It is no surprise to me that your name and your firm carries the level of respect that it does in the area. You and your team will continue to get my recommendations every opportunity I get. Thank you again, and I wish you, your team, and your families a very happy and healthy holiday season!
