Our Team

Katina earned her Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law in May of 2009. Law school allowed for many priceless experiences including a study abroad program in Spetses, Greece, where she studied comparative international law. As well as a third year internship with the Middle District of Florida Federal Public Defenders Office located in Tampa.  However, the catalyst that landed Katina in the field of law she practices today was receiving the Elder Law Scholarship in her second year of law school.

This was the beginning of her journey into estate planning. She immediately fell in love with the work and most importantly the clientele. Katina has been practicing in Florida for over five years currently out of the Lady Lake office of her law firm Katina Pantazis, P.A. working in estate planning and wealth preservation.

Katina considers this her dream job — helping people secure their future, both for themselves and their loved ones. Katina is also deeply involved in the community. She is a respected member of the Florida Bar, Marion County Bar Association, Lake County Bar Association, Sumter County Bar Association, the Rotary Club of The Villages, the Sumter County Chamber and the Lake County Chamber. 

She also serves on the board of the Arnette House in Ocala, Florida and still active with her Sorority, Pi Beta Phi.  She spends her free time participating in co-ed intramurals including flag football, basketball, soccer and volleyball. She also enjoys running, kickboxing, yoga and crossfit.
