As the founder of Saunders Law, attorney Tom Saunders has a long history of experience in civil litigation. Of over 100,00 lawyers practicing in the state of Florida, he is one of less than 100 who have been board-certified in both civil and business litigation. This has given him the opportunity to become familiar with both sides of a suit, allowing him to provide plaintiffs with the most comprehensive representation possible.
Hello, my name is Tom Saunders. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and raised in Miami. After high school, I went and joined the United States Navy. After my tour of duty, I went and attended the University of Notre Dame, where I graduated in 1980, with an English Literature degree. Then I attended the University of Florida Law School, where I graduated in 1982.
I've been a member of the Florida bar for more than 32 years. I'm AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest rating possible. In 1991, I was board-certified as a civil trial specialist by the Florida Bar, and have been recertified every five years since. In 1996, I was also certified as a specialist by the Florida bar in business litigation. Of Florida's 100,000 lawyers, less than 100 are board certified in both civil trial and business litigation. I've had the honor of being the president of the Polk County Trial Lawyers Association, and I've been listed in Florida Super Lawyers, which is a peer rated review publication.
For the last 32 years, I've done nothing but civil litigation. Originally, I represented insurance companies in personal injury suits, which gave me a great insight into how insurance company handled these types of claims. But for over the last 25 years, I've done nothing but plaintiff's personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice cases, representing only plaintiffs in these cases.
About a third of my practice also consists of business litigation matters. Those are cases involving partnership disputes, contract disputes, collection matters, or all aspects of business. And about a third of my practice is family law cases, where we handle anything involving visitation, time sharing, parenting plans, alimony, child support, or modifications.
My personal guiding principle, and the guiding principle of Saunders Law Group, is "Honest, Aggressive, and Professional Representation." I return calls personally. I spend time with clients to make sure they understand all aspects of their case. Honest and quick answers to questions you have and legal advice based on more than 30 years' experience provide you, the client, with the very best representation possible.
