Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Matthew Wayne Chapel

    I know Steve from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College and the Trojan Horse Method seminars. Steve is a one of those rare human beings who is down-to-earth yet bestowed with the highest talent. Like a baseball player with a .350+ batting average, the swing looks natural, but there are many hours of practice that went into that swing. Whenever anyone in Ohio or Indiana asks me to refer them to an attorney in Jacksonville, Florida, I tell them to call Steve. No hesitation. No second thoughts. Steve Watrel is a lawyer that I trust with people who trust me to point them to the right person.

  • Gregory Arthur Lawrence

    Mr. Watrel is an outstanding and tenacious injury and nursing home neglect lawyer. Nursing homes defend lawsuits vigorously and if a lawyer is not experienced in the field he or she will be quickly overwhelmed. Not only does Steve have the experience, he also has the strength to stand toe to toe with any defense firm in Florida. He accepts nothing less than a full measure of justice for his clients. I endorse Steve wholeheartedly and without reservation.
