I endorse this lawyer's work. Jack Townsend is an attorney who thinks outside the box in vigorously representing his clients' interests. He is well liked and respected by Tampa Bay attorneys and judges. I am proud to have him as a friend and trust him, unequivocally. Indeed, this is why I have designated him as my inventory attorney should I become incapacitated or die. Of further note, Jack is a popular and accomplished State & Federal Court Mediator often called upon to help the parties settle complex disputes such as ERISA claims and insurance bad faith.
