About Me

Mr. Pincus joined Yanchuck Berman Wadley & Zervos in 2010.   Prior to joining the firm, he worked as a prosecutor in Pinellas County for over four years.  While employed at the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. Pincus handled and tried a broad range of both felony and misdemeanor cases.


Mr. Pincus brings to the firm an excellent reputation as a criminal trial attorney.  He tried over 40 cases as a prosecutor, including first-degree murder, capital sexual battery, and DUI manslaughter.  His experience enables him to anticipate how the government will proceed in a criminal case and effectively respond to their actions.  Mr. Pincus has been successful in obtaining favorable resolutions on behalf of the firm’s criminal clients.


Since joining Yanchuck Berman Wadley & Zervos, Mr. Pincus has expanded his practice areas by handling personal injury and slip and fall cases.  He has handled cases from the pre-litigation stage all the way through the litigation process.  Mr. Pincus has obtained several very favorable settlements for the firm’s personal injury clients.


Mr. Pincus grew up in Pinellas County.   He graduated from Boca Ciega High School and Eckerd College.  While at Eckerd College he was a four-year member and captain of the school’s NCAA Division II baseball team.
