  • "I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of this firm."

    Raymond's Probate Testimonial (Transcript) Back in 2014, I lost my significant other. She didn't leave a will or anything, so we had to do that through probate. Then we had to get a hold of her living children and have them sign a document, letting me take care of the estate and get everything around. It took about six to nine months maybe, from start to finish, which is a very long process, but it takes time in the court system.   You guys did all the leg work with going to the courts, and knowing what papers to file, and typing up everything for the children to sign, which are from another state quite a ways from here. We just needed to come in, go over it, and sign. Makes it a lot easier. You're very helpful, close by, and keep it in the community.   I definitely wouldn't have been able to do without the help of this firm. So yes, I would highly recommend DeLoach and Hofstra.

  • "You guys treated her very nicely...so that made it easy on her."

    Raymond's Trust Administration Testimonial (Transcript) Kathy, my significant other, was in charge of her mother's estate and everything, and if something happened to her, and then Kathy passed ahead of her mother. So, I then brought her mother over here, so she can get the trust and the estate redone so it'd be up-to-date. You guys treated her very nicely and it didn't take hours and hours at times, so that made it easy on her.   And then recently she passed away, last November, so I came back to get the the stuff rolling on her estate. Becky D. is very, very helpful and she did get back to me all the time, and she called me different questions, and needs, and stuff. "What do we need to do to get this and that.," she knew what to ask for. I was treated very well with Kathy, when I was taking care of her estate, and so that's why I came right back. Because one of those things I was going to talk to Becky about was the house I have. What I need to do to make sure it gets to the right person?   I definitely wouldn't have been able to do without the help of this firm.

  • "As far as I'm concerned, Rep DeLoach has given me a whole new life."

    Clive's Life Care Planning and VA Benefits Testimonial (Transcript) I retired here with my wife. We get here. And little by little, I began noticing her memory disappearing. Took her to a clinic over in St. Petersburg, and they said, "There is early memory loss, about 15%." So that made me become a little worried. But, as each day, each month, each year went by, it became a little bit worse.   I thought, "My wife has got to go into some kind of care. I don't know where you go. I don't know how it works. I don't know what it costs." I came to Rep DeLoach when I realized that a phone call to the elder care organization located here in this area, in this county, was giving me information that wasn't consistent with what I had researched, and I felt that I needed help from someone that would know the situation.   We sat. We talked it over. He gave me background information on what he had to offer with his, first of all, person with the connections to all the assisted living. And he had the assisted living facility set up, the pricing, and everything else. I took her there. I got her set up there. But, within two months, she got up from a dining room table, pitched forward into the corner of another table, and was now being rushed to the hospital with broken ribs.   They told us she could not, could not go back to assisted living. It had to be a nursing home. There, again, was I having to look for one? No, Rep had it already lined up. And at 10:30 at night, three days before Christmas, I was able to drive in the back way to a locked-up facility, and then out came two aides to help pick her up out of my car and carry her in and put her into there, get her cleaned up, and so on. And that was the start of the nursing home.   Rep had within a day or two after, he had a gentleman come into my home - right here in Seminole Gardens, where I'd moved, come in here and sit down with me and work all the paperwork out so that she would be covered by insurance, because the nursing home, frankly, would've had me bankrupt in a year and a half. Now she's in the nursing home. I meet with Rep to go over some other things, and he said to me, "Clive," he said, "I want you to take this paper I have and go to the VA immediately."    I said, "Well, what's this all about, Rep?" He said, "It's called Aid and Attendance."   I'd never heard of it. So I take the paperwork in. Then, about the end of 18 months, I happen to go to the bank, and there was $15,200 in my checking account from the VA. About a week later, the VA sends me a letter of how much I'm going to be getting each month, tax-free.   I'd have never had that money if I hadn't gone to an attorney who knew what he was doing and how to do it. And that assistance was fantastic. Rep was there, and Rep took care of everything for me, but he also gave me something that probably was much more valuable than anything else. Rep recognized what I did, too - that maybe sometimes we can help other people.    As far as I'm concerned, Rep DeLoach has given me a whole new life.

  • "If it hadn't been for Christine and your gentleness and kindness that I received...I would have been insane!"

    Marian's Estate Planning Testimonial (Transcript) I saw in the paper that there was a work shop at DeLoach and Hofstra. So I thought ... I said to my niece, "Come with me. Let's just go and see what it's about." So we came and Rep was there and he was wonderful. So from then on I just came here and got my will changed to a trust. I met Christine, it was just her first year I think, 2017 and I've been happy ever since. My dear, I've been alone for 10 years. I don't know how I did it. My husband did everything. I did not have any clue about any money, bills, accounts, nothing. So when he passed we just did what we had to do. And when I came here I was frustrated and scared to death. It was the biggest decision I ever made alone. And it became so easy. Really. I must say, if it hadn't been for Christine and your gentleness and kindness that I've received, I would have been insane. I know I can call her, I can call here anytime. And like I said, they know the answer right away. They seem to have my papers right there. So they're very prepared to take care of us. She takes her time, listens and she answers right away, no matter what it is. Her thoroughness and her knowledge, she's excellent. And personally, she's a very good person. Very, very good, kind person. And I've sent a lot of my friends here already. I have told them about you and Christine. And the receptionists are marvelous. You know, its these little things that means so much that people overlook. It's just a gentle little hi, or smile, or cup of coffee you know? They make you feel so comfortable. Yeah. I would tell anybody to join this firm, yes.

  • "I felt that they truly were there invested in me at the time. I was important to them."

    Eva's Estate Planning Testimonial (Transcript) I think that Monica referred me to Christine, and of course I learned about her because the law firm provides that service as well. I don’t really have an estate but I didn’t have a last will and testament either so I thought I should be more responsible. What happens when I’m not longer here? But she made a very, very good impression on me, very, very informative. Very patient and transparent as well. And I was appreciative that she explained everything to me, took the time to answer my questions to customize to my needs.  And that’s one thing I think that’s very, very important that she would customize their services and the goal for my needs. But it takes an insane amount of professionalism to be able to handle that. To make the right decisions and I think that was very, very valuable.  So that was so important that she was accessible and explained everything. And Best of course as well, she had the patience and through the time I didn’t feel like I was pressured, not “time’s up!” And that to me basically it’s very, very important that I can ask questions, and re-ask the questions and no matter what she’s accessible and I can call her. Again, I felt very, very comfortable. I felt they truly were there invested in me at that time. I was important to them. My needs were important. And they did their best to inform me to the best of their ability, and that made me feel very valued. To me that speaks priceless volumes. Everything was taken care of and put together and presented to me. I think they did a wonderful job. I could not have been more impressed by that.

  • "Here I found from the very beginning transparency, honesty, that you are there to do what is right no matter what."

    Eva's Car Crash Testimonial (Transcript) The first collision occurred in November, the day before Thanksgiving in 2018 and then the second one occurred June 25th of 2019. And the way that I learned about the existence of the firm, that I even considered asking for help, is one of my friends from church. I go to Bay Pine Lutheran and she used to work here, Jill Iacopelli. That's how I was referred because someone knew someone who actually even worked here. And so of course after I had my very first conversation with Monica, she was my very first contact, official contact. She made a very good impression with her openness, her honesty and I could tell her sincerity and genuine care. And she basically explained everything to me and I felt very, very comfortable. I had a very good first impression. And the same thing with Jenny. I could talk with her and ask questions and I felt very at ease about that to be very open with her, so I felt very valued. And I feel that she was very, very accessible. Professional but not intimidating. And as far as Paul’s concerned when I finally met him, and he was so very kind and he went up online and I learned he was very accessible as he promised me that he would be over email.   Hiring an attorney or counsel, legal counsel, it's scary just because it's a lot of money and you have to make sure that you are hopefully hiring the right firm. Here I found from the very beginning transparency, honesty, that you are there to do what is right no matter what. And that, to me, that integrity and doing what is right is obviously what really matters. Because words are words, but their actions through and through prove that they truly are doing what is right. And you don’t find that very often nowadays. And I would definitely recommend your offices just because you are always reachable and the information you provide, it’s very comprehensive and it's very, very helpful. And just very, very honest. So I feel that I am comfortable asking questions, and so I feel like a valued guest of their firm.

  • "All those doubts were taken away after one day with your family... I have never felt so secure in a business environment in my sixty-eight years of life."

    Walter's Car Crash Testimonial (Transcript) Walter: I had just left a client's home and I was heading west on Bel Air Road and a car was coming at me at a high rate of speed. It had just run the stop sign. The officer said it was probably going 60 miles an hour. I was pushed up off of the street into the front of a business and her car just kind of veered off and it was ripped pretty much, the whole front end ripped off of it. I was able to get my door pried open and I went over and checked on her and she had two small children in the back seat and we got her out of the car and got her on the porch. Donna: When you have an accident, you think if I'm walking and I'm talking that everything's okay.  And at first you don't notice that things aren't okay. Walter: I had a herniated disc, two bulging discs, two of my ribs had broke off at the spine. Donna: And so Meni had said, "Well, you don't know the long-term effect of this. You really should make sure that you're taken care of." Walter: My very best friend who is a retired attorney, Meni Kanner. I had called him about another issue and said, "By the way, I had an accident." And he said, "Walter," he said, "You need to call DeLoach and Hofstra." I said, "I just had a closing over there." I said, "I've known that family Meni since the '80s." He said, "Well, you need to go to them and explain what has happened.” The minute I hung up, I had called your firm and was reassured everything he told me and I made an appointment and came in and, oh my goodness, it overwhelmed me. The detail that they go to for every specific minute item and half of it I wouldn't have even thought about. But when I walked out of there, I felt like I had protective iron around me. And all of those doubts were taken away after one day with your family. And it was so easy to get ahold of Paul. Bang. One phone call, there's Paul. He would answer difficult questions and he kept me focused for that year and a half. And then each time we corresponded, it was always that same warmth, brilliance, and understanding from your office. I feel that I have made friends for life, and I'm positive of that, that I could call on them any time for any question and they would give me a very correct, intelligent answer. I'm certain. I never felt so secure in any business environment in my sixty-eight years of life.

  • "Rep, everybody else, has treated me tremendously. When I would call in, my messages, whoever I need, they call back right away and everything. I feel so lucky, so lucky that I chose this firm."

    Heather's Medicaid Testimonial (Transcript) I initially came in to find out if I could get my husband qualified for Medicaid, because when I came to the seminar, let me think now, when I came to the seminar I think he was already in Wrights nursing home and I realized then that he couldn't come home, but nurses, there were nurses that were telling me that he had three months to live so I thought, maybe I should just leave him where he is and that will be it, you know. But of course so then I would of had to pay full private pay for whatever amount of time it was, and it was one of my sisters who encouraged me, why don't you go just find out, just find out. So we went to the seminar first, the one on Medicaid eligibility and I actually went to that one myself, she wasn't here. At that seminar, I felt that there was a possibility of getting him approved. So then we went, she came with me to the consultation and of course they had me bring a big stack of papers and everything, and it was during that session that Rep looked at me and said, "This is an easy one." He says, "I can get Joel qualified for Medicaid in about a month." I thought I would die. I thought I would just fall off my chair, because I really wasn't 100% certain that it could happen, you know. But he said yes, I believed him and he made it happen. Mary Lou, of course, answers a gazillion questions that I have and if I need something or whatever, she helps me out with that. So once we did that then Rep said well I'm going to send you to this lawyer in St. Pete... you got to talk to him about spousal support. I said I don't know what you're talking about. He says, well he does this thing where based on certain information, a judge might award you your husbands income. I never heard of it, in fact he said most lawyers have never even heard of it. So I imagine there are probably not that many lawyers in the area that are even doing it. And when we got the notification that he was eligible, I just wanted to cry, because now it's closing in on a year and a half that he's in a nursing home. Rep, everybody else, has treated me tremendously. When I would call in, my messages, whoever I need, they call back right away and everything. I feel so lucky, so lucky that I chose this firm. I'm not just a number on the calendar. We'll just take care of this blah, blah, blah. Never a rush. I was made to feel always welcome and always that they cared about me and my situation. It's a good feeling to know that whatever I need related to Joe's situation that I will get the right advice, the right answers to questions and I just feel very happy and comfortable with them.

    Heather
  • "I couldn't recommend anybody better than Rep. I firmly believe he's the best elder care lawyer that there is, in this area. There's no one else that you need to go to. You need to come here and let him assist you because he does know the ins and outs. He does care, he will go ahead and make sure that your wishes are carried out, he will listen. I've been through it with my mom and my dad. Now, I've done it for myself and I firmly believe that when it's time, my sister will be coming here for the same thing because it's so important. So many people need to do it that aren't doing it and this is the place to come."

    Ron's Estate Planning Testimonial (Transcript) Dad and I actually talked about what I needed to do, you know, as far as getting an estate plan set up. I got a little nephew and niece, very young. And decided that, what I needed to do and then I came in and talked to Rep about it, is to get an estate plan setup. I came in because I wanted to make sure that this thing was ironclad. Rep recommended that we do a trust and that way we could set up the trust, as far as what my wishes were, and I wanted it to be such that nobody could challenge it.  So, didn't really know anyone, really, that I trusted to be the trustee. Rep said he could be the trustee, and then if something were to happen to him, another law partner could be the trustee. I knew how important it was to have a trust and have estate planning because we had that for dad. So that when I pass away, just like when dad passed away, there was no probate. That condo went right into my name. He had it all taken care of for us.  Rep a... you know I came in and talked to him first, and I explained to him what I was trying to do, and I wanted it set up, my estate set up with a trust, so that with my nephew and my niece, that it would be all settled. That my nephew would get half of the estate, my niece would get half of the estate. My nephew would get the Condo, similar to the way I got the Condo left to me.  I used my ace in the hole, so that I'm making sure that those kids are taken care of.  Rep explained everything to me. He had suggestions on how we should do it, things that I would have never thought of. I mean, mine was a little bit different than dads, but having that setup, having the estate setup like that, and having the Condo set up the way we've done, just... at the time that you lose someone, you're not thinking good. When my dad and mom passed away, I wasn't in too good a shape. Not for a long time. The worse thing to do is try to make business decisions right after you've lost your loved one. So why not go ahead and have that all set up ahead of time?  You need someone that understands the law, you need someone that cares. If you don't have someone that cares, no telling what you're gonna get. I couldn't recommend anybody better than Rep. I firmly believe he's the best elder care lawyer that there is, in this area. There's no one else that you need to go to. You need to come here and let him assist you because he does know the ins and outs. He does care, he will go ahead and make sure that your wishes are carried out, he will listen. I've been through it with my mom and my dad. Now, I've done it for myself and I firmly believe that when it's time, my sister will be coming here for the same thing because it's so important. So many people need to do it that aren't doing it and this is the place to come.

  • "I could not think of a more compassionate, careful, considerate, knowledgeable, professional group of people than your firm. We have been so pleased and blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know you, and to have you on our side as part of our team helping us care for our parents."

    Sandy's Medicaid Planning Testimonial (Transcript) We came to your office because another family member of ours, a cousin, had used your firm for their parents, my aunt, and my uncle. You did such a wonderful job for my cousin and my aunt and uncle that she could not recommend you highly enough for us, and our family to come to you for our problems. My sister and I are only two siblings, and we look after a 91, and a 92-year-old parent. My sister and I are in our early 60s, and we find ourselves with parents who didn't think they were going to live that long who now have a need for medical care, and need for other home health, as well as assisted living. They had, by this time, run through a great portion of their funds, and my sister and I needed a way to continue to care for them in a compassionate way. When my cousin recommended your firm, and I wish that I had come here three years sooner than when I did, we found ourselves in the best position ever. We met Tammy, we met Mary Lou, and we found that the two of them were like long lost sisters to us. They sat down with us and explained the different methodologies that we could use to protect what was remaining of their assets, how to continue to use their assets for ongoing care, and what government assistance might be possible to us if we just did it the right way. Frankly, my sister and I didn't really know what the right way was, so coming here we found that meeting with Rep, Rep had an extensive background on how the Veterans Administration worked, how the Department of Children's and Family Services worked, as well as Mary Lou's experience with all the assisted living facilities, and her background in working with the Department of Children's and Family Services. She knew who to call, what to say, how to create logons and passwords, how to input information. It's phenomenal. Tammy, she was able to take all of our parents' financial asset and categorize them for us. By categorizing them correctly she was able to help us with creating a qualified income trust, which gave us some of the extra income to be able to take care of my parents in a much better way than if I had to rely only on Medicaid to look after them at 91 and 92. All of your staff's attention to detail, willingness to return phone calls quickly, to make phone calls on our behalf, to research what the laws might possibly be, because we were a new thing with a husband, and a wife having veterans' benefits, as well as looking for Medicaid benefits. Actually, the two of them together have been a phenomenal relief, they have taken so much of the stress off of my sister, and I trying to figure out how we were going to care for them. I could not think of a more compassionate, careful, considerate, knowledgeable, professional group of people than your firm. We have been so pleased and blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know you, and to have you on our side as part of our team helping us care for our parents.

  • "I was well pleased with the way it was handled. I was kept informed. They treated me like anybody would want to be treated. I have really nothing bad I can say about it at all. The kept me up to date on everything...I'd recommend you to anyone."

    John's Car Crash Testimonial (Transcript) The accident took place on Thanksgiving Day. It'll be three years ago this past Thanksgiving. It was at 102nd and Seminole Boulevard. I was stopped at the stoplight. There was two cars in front of me and I was the third car. Coming south on Seminole, I never saw the person, hit me about a fourth way into the intersection. I went airborne a little bit, scooted me across the pavement, and then I was upside down in my SUV. All I can say is thank God it was a heavy SUV. It was a Mercedes, or I wouldn't be talking to you here. The glass, all the airbags, all that, the biggest thing I got was a cut on my left arm and my back. That's the main thing. I turned black and blue all the way from my neck all the way down to my waist for about two months. But other than that, I got through it okay.  Most people like me that haven't been in an accident, never had an accident, even though I'm familiar with lawyers and all that, you don't know exactly, if you will, what you're doing. Once you get connected like I did with your law firm, it's the way it was handled. The idea that they had a video to show me, to tell me what to do and not to do, because this is not my expertise. As a result, I, if you will, was very well briefed. I was told what to do, what not to do. I said I was well pleased with it. I thought it was very professional.  Jennifer was the paralegal. From my point of view, I thought I was treated very professionally. I did not have a big claim, but I don't care how large it could have been. I was well pleased with the way it was handled. I was kept informed. They treated me like anybody would want to be treated. I have really nothing bad I can say about it at all. The kept me up to date on everything. I was well pleased with it. Very well. Had I to do it over again or if I, thank God hopefully I won't have another accident, there'd be no place else to go. I would advise anybody to go. From my point of view, you're very professional. I said I was very well pleased. I'd recommend you to anyone.

  • "From his depositions to the medical witnesses to his cross-examinations to his closing, Paul just ran that courtroom. It was very impressive. He made it easy. He made a horrible process easy. I would definitely recommend him and this law firm."

      Ron and Renee's Rear-End Car Wreck (Transcript) Renee: So I was taking my children to school. We were stopped behind another vehicle, waiting on a school bus on the opposite side of the road to load kids from an apartment complex, and got hit from behind while we were stopped. My seat back kind of collapsed. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) estimated that he was going 40 miles an hour, so there were no brakes, no nothing, just slammed into the back of my car. At the time, I was very active. I was running and going to the gym. Because it's a lower back pain, that kind of stopped. Ron: I called around to a couple of law firms, and I think maybe I spoke with Monica. And based off of that, I decided that this one seemed like the proper firm for us. Monica pretty much is on top of it from the very start. Renee: Peggy also kept us well informed, and Jennifer's always been a great coordinator or things for us. Ron: Pretty much the whole process we were kept informed. Monica let us know what was going on. Paul was great. Renee: He's a great guy. He's very detailed oriented. He was amazing during the trial, he didn't miss a beat. Preparing us for trial was great. When I got up to testify, it was like I was sitting here in the office, talking with him in the office. Ron: Every time he got up, you kind of felt relaxed because you knew it was going to go right. Renee: Having somebody who can put you at ease, even if you're not going to go to trial, if you're just going to go to mediation or whatever, having somebody who can put you at ease from the beginning of the process to the end of whatever process it is, is great. Ron: Now usually it's nerve-racking. You just didn't feel it with Paul. I enjoyed the days in court. Seriously. I was only up on the stand for maybe 15, 20 minutes, but it lasted two and a half, three days. I enjoyed those days in court. He got up there. He's not a huge guy, and it was just him against a couple lawyers with the insurance company. And he just, he was like a giant out there. I mean it was like a Perry Mason moment, you know what I mean? I mean seriously. Renee: It was almost like he could predict what they were going to say, so he had his response ready. Ron: From his depositions to the medical witnesses to his cross-examinations to his closing, Paul just ran that courtroom. It was very impressive. He made it easy. He made a horrible process easy. I would definitely recommend him and this law firm.

  • "It's the most incredible experience I've ever had. I've never had to worry about how many questions I asked. Rep would answer very patient, very kind. A great educator and he did a fantastic job on all of our documents and if I need to call with a question or send him an email, you get an answer right away."

    David and Charlann's Estate Planning Testimonial (Transcript) Charlann: We were looking for an attorney and we were driving up Seminole Boulevard and he was the first to notice. He looked and said, "There's an attorney right here, not too far from where we live in Seminole."    David: I knew where the place was just because I'm cognizant of where we're driving. I said, "We're using a guy up in Clearwater." I said, "We don't need to go up there, let's go in this place right here on the corner." We drive by it every day. That's how we ended up in here.   It was interesting. I like your service probably in many different ways than my wife. The primary one, the reason I like coming here is because she's comfortable.    Charlann: It's the most incredible experience I've ever had. I've never had to worry about how many questions I asked. Rep would answer very patient, very kind. A great educator and he did a fantastic job on all of our documents and if I need to call with a question or send him an email, you get an answer right away.    David: I think Rep is great. I love talking with him and I love dealing with all the people that are here. As she says, you feel comfortable. I knew that five minutes after I came in here. Especially talking to him because he's so outgoing and he's kind of laid back and stuff. We kidded right off and I had a good time. It was an easy rapport right up front.    Charlann: I mean, what else do you want? It's a perfect scenario. it's the perfect, this is the perfect law firm. With your perfect attorney and I can't say enough about what a good experience anybody would have using Rep. He's board certified in elder law.    David: We don't give birthday cards to everybody. On his birthday, we came in and not only gave him a card but we sang Happy Birthday to him.    Charlann: Every year.    David: It floored him.    Charlann: He was coming down the hall and we had this birthday card you open it up and it sings to you. It's one of those musical cards. The birthday card opens up with this crinkly paper type thing and he walked by and he says, "It's my birthday, isn't it?"    David: Got a question? Call Rep, they'll take care of you. Everybody will take care of you. That's the way it should be. That's family.    Charlann: Working with Rep and with Tammy, I'd like to say a couple of words about Tammy, the first thing you want to do when I see Tammy, is give her a hug. The hugs go around a lot with her and with both of us.    David: Yeah.    Charlann: Tammy is wonderful. We love her. She's very talented. She's very good. She is very thorough and it's just an enjoyable experience all the way around. We thank everybody for all they've done for us, for both of us.    David: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Good stuff.    Charlann: Good stuff.    David: Yeah. 

  • "The diligence that Paul, Monica and Jennifer showed was great. I couldn’t have done anything without them. They were guiding me the whole time."

    Sean had just finished working out at the gym and was driving his beloved Stella to the dog park. Stella is more than just a yellow Labrador. She’s family. They were sitting at the light on Tyrone Boulevard at 66th Street. The light turned green. Before Sean took his foot off the brake, they were hit hard from behind. The impact threw Stella into the back of Sean’s seat. His back already injured, Sean instinctively turned to see if Stella was alright and further injured himself. “I was more concerned with her than anything at that point,” recalled Sean. Sean’s employer referred him to DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis, P.A. and recommended he speak with attorney Paul Cavonis. Sean’s employer was familiar with the law firm from his involvement with Seminole Rotary Club and other community groups. Sean initially spoke with Paul, and then with paralegal Monica Case. The team met with him the next day. “We went over everything,” explained Sean. “Everything was quick and easy. They told me that it was going to take about a year, but within the year, it was constant contact letting me know what was going on, setting up my doctor appointments, meeting with doctors.” “Then paralegal Jennifer Pachoumis came in about five months into the case to help Monica get everything put together. The diligence that Paul, Monica and Jennifer showed was great. I couldn’t have done anything without them. They were guiding me the whole time.” The sign of a great legal team is how well they keep their clients’ informed. “Not only did Paul, Monica, and Jennifer call me, they’d write me emails and make sure I went over all the documents two to three times making sure everything was correct.” It wasn’t just about Sean. “Not only did they ask how I was doing, but how Stella was doing,” explained Sean. “That was a really big deal. Stella is like my child because I don’t have a wife or kids. That made me feel like they genuinely cared about my well-being as well as Stella’s well-being.” “It’s a family atmosphere there, and that’s what I liked,“ exclaimed Sean. “I couldn’t say enough about DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis.” Sean is right about our firm’s family atmosphere. We’re committed to helping every member of your family. Even beloved pets like Stella. When you need help, we’re here.

  • "...I called him and the same day, I came to the office. At that time, they walked me through the process of litigation. And most importantly, they eased my fears. All of these emotions. And I was met with support and kindness and I never had to worry about what was going on with the case. It took a long time to get to being able to return to work and have my life back so to speak, but with their help, their support, their kindness, I was able to put this behind me. I felt supported throughout the entire process."

    Heather's Car Crash Testimonial (Transcript) On my way to work about three and a half years ago, unexpectedly, I was hit by a utility truck on 275. At the time, I was shook up and a lot of endorphins were going through my body. I didn't realize I was hurt at the time. A couple of days later, I was in terrible, terrible pain. And I really didn't know what to do. And I remembered some of my friends and colleagues talking about Mr. Cavonis. He was a man of high integrity. I knew that he was a philanthropist. He had given much to a lot of our hospice patients. And I remembered his name, and I thought, I think he's the right one for me. So I called him and the same day, I came to the office. At that time, they walked me through the process of litigation. And most importantly, they eased my fears. All of these emotions. And I was met with support and kindness and I never had to worry about what was going on with the case. It took a long time to get to being able to return to work and have my life back so to speak, but with their help, their support, their kindness, I was able to put this behind me. I felt supported throughout the entire process.
