The man is brilliant. He answers questions while I am still forming them in my mind. Thoroughly covered all aspects of my case and I felt total confidence in him from our first conversation.
-Client review Martindale Hubbell
Michael Versnik joined the firm in 2019 after serving as a civil trial attorney at another firm, successfully trying numerous cases to verdict and upholding verdicts on appeal. Prior to that he was an injury defense attorney at a prestigious defense firm representing insurance policyholders against claims and lawsuits. Because of his time at an insurance defense firm, he has important insight that can help him better understand how to maximize the value of your case.
Versnik never intended to practice law when he grew up in Middletown, Ohio. A baseball player in college, he graduated with a degree in sports management from Webber International University and became a manager of a YMCA in Ohio and then Jacksonville.
In Florida, he started to think about taking his career in another direction by becoming a sports agent. To do so, he went to law school at Florida Coastal School of Law where he received a sports law certificate. He never became a sports agent after an internship at a firm in Pensacola introduced him to personal injury law.
“I never grew up with any lawyers and didn’t know anything about law,” he said. “I didn’t have any desire to spend time in a courtroom, but it was a path that chose me.”
Looking back, he’s not surprised that he ended up practicing personal injury law.
“Competitors thrive in the world of personal injury,” he said. “The transition to the legal field felt good to me. Being competitive aligns attorneys to go about doing what we do.”
