John K. Overchuck, the managing attorney of the Overchuck Law Firm.
When you choose me as your lawyer, you do just that, you get me as your lawyer. I will take your calls and be available whenever you need me, even on the weekends. You will have my personal e-mail that forwards to my cell phone so you will receive a response the same day. I have never had a client say, “I could not reach my lawyer when needed.” My office does not have an answering service. What does that mean? After hours, our calls are forwarded to our cell phones so no stranger will be taking your calls. I am the kind of lawyer that REALLY cares about his clients. I am a kind, good-natured person who will treat you with the respect you deserve. I am married to my beautiful wife, Natacha, who is a self-made woman herself. When I am not spending time with my family, I will be in my office working on YOUR CASE. You are my client but you are also my employer – I WORK FOR YOU. My goal is for you to be so pleased with me as your lawyer that you refer everyone you know that may need representation. I will do everything I can to make sure I will be the lawyer you turn to for the rest of your life.
As to my background, I earned my juris doctorate law degree in 2002 and passed the Florida Bar Exam on my first attempt. I have extensive experience in all aspects of personal injury cases. I handled over 1000 personal injury and wrongful death cases from start to finish recovering over 75 million for my clients. I have obtained successful outcomes for my clients because I am relentless in obtaining justice on their behalf. My first job at the age of sixteen was working in a personal injury law firm. I started at the bottom and worked my way up – literally working in every position in that firm. That hard work built the character necessary to run a successful law firm. Today, there is no job beneath me or that I won’t do and I expect that same mentality with each and every person that works here. Simply put, we are a team – Team Overchuck. And that team is here to serve YOU.
In addition to being a full-service personal injury firm, we are a trusted referral source for any legal matter you may need. If we don’t do it, we will find you the best attorney that does.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked for/with John and find him to be an outstanding lawyer who is skilled and knowledgeable in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death and products liability. John is very personable and participates actively in each case from the first meeting with the client until the resolution of the case by settlement or jury verdict. His experience in the courtroom is extremely valuable in predicting what his opponent will do. Insurance adjusters fear and respect him because they know that he is not afraid to take a case to trial. More importantly, they don't want to go up against John at trial because they know he will WIN as evidenced by his proven track record. Not only is he successful in trial, John is also active in the community by supporting a number of local and national charities including Paws for Cause, which benefits an animal rescue team. He also supports Toys for Tots, breast cancer awareness and many others. You can't go wrong with John!
