Invaluable in helping me through a difficult time.

Javier was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. After my husband passed away suddenly from a massive heart attack at the age of 63, I was devastated. On top of everything, to learn that because we didn't have our wills completed I would need to probate his estate, I didn't know which way to turn. Javier walked me through the process and made it easy. He answered all my questions. Not only did I hire him to take care of my husband's probate, but I had him take care of all my estate planning needs as well. Because of Javier's knowledge of estate planning, and specifically with the various Florida statutes, he was able to complete all the necessary documents quickly and easily. Now I can rest assured that in the event something happens to me, my will and revocable trust will make things easier for my four children, and I know Javier will take care of anything that comes up.

Javier eased our minds.

Mr. Centonzio provided us with legal advice that eased our worries, concerns and anxiety concerning an elder law issue. He was thorough and gave us sound advice in a timely manner. We now know what direction to take concerning our loved one.

Voluminous paperwork required for processing Medicaid eligibility is overwhelming.Javier executed definitive lists of documents needed to apply for aid for my husband who has terminal brain cancer.He streamlined the process with easy to understand reasoning of what and why it was important to have financial paperwork in order and in a timely manner.He and his team personally assisted in contacting those institutions that I needed to return my calls when I was stretched to the limit with attending to my husbands personal care.Our family is grateful to have found a superb lawyer in our time of emotional upheaval.Countless time he answered repetitive questions I could not grasp regarding what it was I was to ask for from representatives or why it was necessary.He notified me of progress, and listened to my concerns,offering knowledgeable,constructive advice.Javier offers true compassion to our family situation yet lends that strong guidance and perseverance needed to deliver the Eligibility approval. Living wills,durable power of attorney,health surrogate,advanced directives and wills in general are also important to create.The majority of people shy away from planning for the aforementioned because those topics are depressing.Javier processed these documents efficiently which helped to take away the sting of pain associated with this necessary evil that I knew eventually our family would have to address.

An Attorney Who Listens

I am familiar with Javier as both a friend and a fellow attorney. He is an attorney who listens to the issues, focuses on the problem, and helps to provide solutions. He is trustworthy and dependable. I highly recommend Javier for anyone who needs help with estate planning, probate, veterans benefits, or any of the related areas of law.

Look No Further

Philip is an amazing young man that knows his immigration law. He helped my family with a difficult situation. He is professional while compassionate about immigration needs. Look no further. I have full confidence in his ability to help you with whatever immigration crossroads you are at. While young, he is experienced beyond his years. Thank you Philip for taking my calls after hours and for putting my nerves at ease.

You Virturally Saved My Home

Dear Mr. Weylie, Please accept my deepest gratitude for your outstanding representation which ended so successfully. You virtually saved my home and topped it further when you negotiated 440,000 dollars off of my loan. Before finding you, I had reached a feeling of utter despair. I had been ill advised by my former attorney and had little hope left of saving my home from foreclosure. You not only did an excellent job representing me, I will never forget your compassion and reassurance. There were times when I was unable to sleep due to the stress, I emailed you in the middle of the night and received back words of encouragement. Such service is unheard of in this day and age which makes your positive attitude even more remarkable. During the months before a judgment was reached concerning my home, I was able to continue work on my non-profit food pantry and help many less fortunate than myself. Were it not for you that would not have been possible either. Thank you so much for everything you did to save my home. I am forever in your debt. Kindest regards, Gale Valente

Javier gets the job done, and done well, no matter the circumstance.

I was in the Marine Corps with Javier Centonzio many moons ago, before 9/11. He was a highly motivated and highly respected leader in his unit. Someone you could depend on to get the job done, and done well, no matter the circumstance. When the balloon goes up, he is a man you want on your side.
