About Me

Joseph E. Boatwright Jr., J.D., has spent more than 25 years honing his skills as a civil trial attorney. He is committed to pursuing justice through disciplined research, avid negotiations and impeccable preparation. Mr. Boatwright is known for his honest and earnest approach in representing clients who have been injured through the negligence of another. He takes care to spend a great deal of his time communicating with clients and personally overseeing each step of their case.


Mr. Boatwright is among only two percent of the estimated 93,000 lawyers in Florida to be board-certified as a specialist in civil trial law. Board certified lawyers have met The Florida Bar=s highest standards for special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in the practice of law. Certified lawyers= experience and competency have been rigorously evaluated, and they are the only Florida lawyers allowed to refer to themselves as specialists or experts. The Supreme Court of Florida approved the board certification program as a way to help consumers make informed decisions when selecting lawyers. Board certification=s stringent requirements for legal expertise and professional conduct give the public objective standards by which to evaluate attorneys.
