About Me

Before I was a lawyer I was a Firefighter for the City of Cape Coral Florida.   I am originally from Texas, but I grew up in a small fishing town in Florida called Matlacha.  I have my own law practice in downtown Ft. Myers.  I handle employment law cases and personal injury cases in Southwest Florida.  You can learn more about me by visiting my website at www.gunterfirm.com
