Outstanding Representation
Mr. Whibbs successfully represented me recently in a workman's comp case. He negotiated a positive resolution aggressively and professionally. Throughout the process when I had questions or concerns Donovan did not hesitate to take the time to answer . He communicates in a manner that makes the legal process understandable. If you want to win your case I suggest contacting Attorney Donovan Whibbs. He fights for what is right

My Attorney
You can search the entire state of Florida, and you would not find a harder working, more caring, more efficient attorney than J. Donovan Whibbs. He handled my very complex workers compensation case against a large big box corporation and he won! I received a large settlement for my injury. I highly recommend him. Gary H.
