I was born and reared in Tampa, graduating from Jesuit High School. After graduating in Zoology from the University of Florida, i moved to Houston to obtain my Doctor of Law degree. My background in zoology and life sciences has helped me represent those seriuosly injured by better explaining their injuries to the jury. I was Board Certified early in my trial lawyer career, and have spoken on many occasions to Doctors and lawyers about litigating seriuos personal injury and wrongful death cases.
My wife and i leve in south Tampa, and have 3 grown and married children. I have been active with the local barr association activites as well as with state wide trial lawyers on behalf of victims of negligence.

I first met Tony Martino when he was on the board of directors of the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, and his enthusiasm for his profession was truly remarkable. His reputation is impressive and he is truly one of the best trial lawyers in Tampa, if not in the entire middle of the state. He is aggressive, hard-working, ethical and a terrific lawyer.
