Douglas Kepanis - Attorney at Law and Millionaire Matchmaker Realty TV Star
(Long Island, N.Y.) New to reality fame is Divorce Attorney Douglas S. Kepanis. I recently interviewed Mr. Kepanis from the hit realty Bravo network TV show "Millionaire Matchmaker" at Pacha Nightclub in Manhattan.
Let me familiarize you with this latest reality franchise. The show's star, Patti Stanger, is a third generation matchmaker. In January 2000 Patti Stanger established Millionaire's Club International. Ms. Stanger, the club's founder, is the former Director of Marketing for Great Expectations; the oldest and largest dating service in the United States.
Ms. Stanger is the star and executive producer of the wildly successful "Millionaire Matchmaker" on Bravo TV Network. Famous for her straightforward approach and razor sharp wit and tongue, Patti has been featured in countless publications including newspapers, magazines and blogs. She is also the author of the bestselling book, "Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate", published by Simon & Schuster. The publications are now available in paperback and are guaranteed to get you that significant other!
The TV format of the show consists of Ms. Stanger counseling two individuals per episode, the millionaires, on how to find love in the 21st century. As the show continues, the TV audience is treated to comical scenarios, silent moments that prove awkward and sexy innuendos. The audience is amused by the courtship process of the millionaires and the people they have chosen to date. Periodically through the show Ms. Stanger will scold the millionaires for not listening to her careful advice on finding the right mate.
Back for the fourth season, Patti Stanger brings her matchmaking expertise to the east coast in New York City to rescue the dating impaired. Patti has a few tricks up her sleeve using a spy camera, lie detector test and hiring a make-up specialist from Saturday Night Live. Nevertheless finding love in the big apple may be her biggest challenge yet.
That is where Attorney at Law Douglas Kepanis comes in. I had the chance to chat with him about his unique experience on the realty genre.
A trained and highly successful attorney, Douglas S. Kepanis, LL.M. now lives in Long Island after being raised in Queens, New York. He graduated from Binghamton University with a BA in Political Science. Mr. Kepanis also attended the California Western School of Law where he held the title of Editor of the Law Review and International Law Journal. He was a dedicated an excellent law student graduating cum laude with his Juris Doctorate. Because of his diversified interests in world events, he studied International and Comparative Law at the Georgetown University Law Center obtaining a distinguished LL.M. degree.
Mr. Kepanis decided to open his own respected legal firm after practicing with a prestigious Garden City matrimonial and family law agency. Although he is an aggressive attorney advocating his clients' needs, he is also compassionate in preceding with child custody cases. The goal of his firm is to carefully guide you through the legal minefield that encompasses those areas of law, but to also ensure you are treated with respect while listening to his emotionally traumatized clients each step of the way.
He is active in his surrounding community and participates at lectures for Parents Without Partners, writes advice articles on divorce for L.I. Woman Magazine and has been honored with the title "Legal Eagle" by L.I. Pulse Magazine.
After seeing many colleagues struggle through an agonizing divorce, Mr. Kepanis was determined in ensuring that the same mistakes and mishaps would not occur for others. Thus he created Kepanis Law Firm.
