About me

I have been representing the injured and disabled throughout West Central Florida for over 25 years since graduating with a juris doctorate degree from Stetson University College of Law.  I represent the injured and disabled and never insurance companies.

I am a member of various legal bar groups, including the Florida Justice Association (workers' compensation section); the Florida Bar (workers' compensation section); the American Association for Justice; the national Workplace Injury Law & Advocacy Group; the National Organization of Social Security Claimant's Representatives, and am a founding member and director of Florida Workers' Advocates, a Florida statewide organization of lawyers who represent injured workers.

I am board certified by the Florida Bar as an expert in workers' compensation law, a distinction earned by fewer than 1% of Florida lawyers (there is no Florida Bar Social Security Board certification).  I am AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directories which is the highest attorney competency rating given by Martindale-Hubbell, the nation’s largest and most prominent national attorney rating company.

  • Alfred Jeffrey Hilado

    I endorse this lawyer. Dennis is a true advocate for his clients. His knowledge of the law is not only current but always on point. He is actively involved in organizations representing the interests of the injured worker, serving on their leadership team (Board) for many, many years. Those who retain his services to seek assistance in a very harsh workers compensation system (for injured workers)are truly well served; are in good hands; and will certainly be informed so that they can make sound decisions in their case.

  • Jennifer Tipton Pollock

    I have had many cases against Dennis over the past 16 years (and ongoing). Dennis is one of the smartest and most capable workers compensation attorneys in the state. He fights for his clients while maintaining the highest levels of professionalism.
