About Dean Galigani

Florida Criminal Defense Attorney - Dean GaliganiI am a Florida Bar Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer and founder of Galigani Law Firm located in Gainesville, Florida. As a Florida Bar Association Certified Criminal Trial Law Specialist, I have been accredited the highest level of recognition by the Florida Bar within my area of practice. Only those who have this certification may use the term "Expert" or "Specialist" when speaking about their knowledge and experience concerning the criminal justice subject matter.It's an honor to say that I completed all the necessary qualifications, and my colleagues perceive my skills adequate and fitting to this prestigious official recognition. As such, I practice law with this in mind, and uphold the values associated with this certification and The Florida Bar Association. With over 20 years of experience, I unwaveringly defend men, women and juveniles facing misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. My litigation experience includes all practices of criminal law such as DUI, domestic violence, drug charges, theft, burglary, and violent crime. I use my expertise to create the best possible defense for each of my clients' needs. Regardless how many times I fight a particular offense, I understand that every case is unique, and each client receives my dedicated attention. This is especially important since even the smallest details can strengthen a defense strategy.I understand the serious implications of a criminal conviction, which can haunt a person long after they have completed their sentence. Aside from the potentially large fines and precious time spent in jail or court that you can never get back, there are several other repercussions to handling a case without a skilled attorney. With the use of background checks, individuals with criminal records may find getting a job more difficult, disqualification for certain professional licenses, and missed housing opportunities. I work diligently for my clients and help fight for their cause, pursuing the best possible outcomes. If you would like to speak to me about criminal charges brought against you, call Galigani Law Firm for a free consultation at (352) 375-0812. We can discuss the details of your case, determine your best option and begin creating a defense tailored to the details of your case.
