Welcome to The Law Office of Dan Policastro. I am a divorce, family law, and civil trial attorney in Venice, Florida.
My law firm is centered around civil litigation and dispute resolution, with 90% of my practice dedicated to litigation. I practice primarily in the areas of divorce and family law, real estate litigation, business and commercial litigation, and inheritance disputes. As a proponent of early mediation and alternative dispute resolution, I try to keep the focus on the solution; not the problem. This practical approach to solving legal issues allows me to resolve cases without litigation when possible. I believe that this approach results in more efficient and effective representation.
While the majority of the matters crossing my desk involve disputes, I come from a finance and technology background. For this reason I also represent businesses and provide guidance in the areas of business entity formation, contract and lease negotiations, purchase agreements, and trademark matters. My background in both transaction law and litigation offers a broad perspective, and I use that perspective to help solve challenging legal problems and to better serve the interests of my clients.
When I decided to open my own law office I made a commitment to do it with excellence. In addition to providing capable representation, I do my best to serve my clients with the highest levels of professionalism, integrity, and respect. It is a privilege to practice law and an honor to be trusted with important legal matters. I take this privilege very seriously.
I promptly returns all phone calls and emails, and I care about my clients and their needs. Whether the matter is a complicated dispute or a routine transaction, I approach each situation candidly and strategically. My office serves Venice, Sarasota, and Charlotte County, and I have assembled a team of professionals to assist in zealously representing the interests of my clients.
