Family Law Solutions On Your Terms

The South Tampa Law Group, P.A. led by its founding partner, Chris Ragano, is an advocate for individuals facing a dissolution of marriage or other family law matter who want to protect their children and their assets.


We represent individuals facing divorce, child custody disputes, paternity actions, support modifications and other legal family and marital issues. Attorney Chris Ragano has served the Tampa Bay community for 20 years. From the time that you retain our firm to represent you, we are working on a strategic trial plan designed to protect your children and your assets. We prepare every case to go trial from the time that we are retained so by the time your case goes to Court we are ready and the other party knows it.


Since we are so thorough and efficient from the time that you retain us in our discovery practice if it possible that we can settle a case at mediation, it is because the other side already knows that they are dealing with a staunch advocate who will fight for the rights of our client. Our tireless advocacy of our clients and our tenacity in pursuing clients’ goals has established this firm as a well-known resource in the legal community for all contested family law matters.
