Insurance Claim Attorney in Pinellas
At the start of 2020, Keith joined the team at Herman & Wells. He focuses on helping people who have been treated unjustly by their insurance companies. He uses his significant skills to help individuals—whether it’s homeowners, business owners, or kids—be treated right within the legal system.
As part of his work on the insurance team, Keith has helped people with multiple insurance issues, including helping recover insurance money to repair roofs damaged by storms, make up for property lost to fire damage, and fix property damaged by water.
What Made Keith Want to Become an Insurance Dispute Lawyer?
In seventh grade, Keith’s language arts teacher assigned the class roles in a mock trial centered around a short story involving the mysterious death of the lead character. He was given the role of defense counsel and this defining experience helped him realize that he wanted to become a lawyer.
That path took him through law school and he eventually became a defense lawyer, just like in his classroom project. Keith worked for the Office of the Public Defender in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, which encompasses both Pinellas and Pasco counties. During his time in that office, he handled all levels of criminal cases, from misdemeanor theft to homicide. As a member of the public defender’s office, he spent countless hours advocating in front of judges and juries.
Following his time serving as a public defender, he went into private practice. He continued to practice criminal law, but also began working on civil cases. His firm also provided pro bono services as Guardians ad Litem for children whose parents were going through a divorce or custody dispute.
What’s Keith Like Outside of the Office?
In addition to his professional life, Keith is also a husband and father. He is happily married to his high school sweetheart and together they have two amazing boys. He’s interested in providing his kids with great experiences, watching them compete in sports and performances, and being a part of whatever hobby or video game that brings a smile to their faces. Both he and his wife are graduates of Florida State University and are avid Seminole fans. They love attending concerts, going to the beach, and discovering amazing new restaurants.
As a pivotal member of our law firm, Keith is ready to advocate on the side of Florida policyholders that are tired of being treated unfairly by their insurance providers.
