John Wesley assists clients throughout the State of Florida with claims involving catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, and death. In addition, he represents clients in cases where their insurance company has denied coverage. Mr. Wesley obtained undergraduate degrees from Florida State University and then attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, CA on a partial scholarship, where he graduated Cum Laude. John Wesley has been practicing law since 2001 and is admitted to practice before all courts in the State of Florida, as well as the US District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
Despite being the youngest member of his law firm, Mr. Wesley has been recognized by his peers for his skill and experience as a civil trial lawyer. Mr. Wesley was selected as a Rising Star (attorneys under 40) by Florida Super Lawyers magazine for 2012, 2013, and 2014. Selection to Rising Stars is limited to no more than 5% of all attorneys in the State of Florida. Mr. Wesley has also been selected as a member of The Top 40 under 40 by The National Trial Lawyers, signifying his qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young trial lawyer. In 2014, Mr. Wesley was recognized as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the State of Florida by The National Trial Lawyers.
Additionally, Mr. Wesley is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law, which requires significant trial experience, peer endorsement, judicial endorsement, and successfully passing a written examination testing trial knowledge and skills. Mr. Wesley passed on his first attempt. Less than 7% of all attorneys in the State of Florida are Board Certified, and a significantly smaller percentage are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law. Mr. Wesley’s entire legal practice is devoted to civil litigation. Board Certification is the highest level of evaluation recognized by the Florida Bar, and allows Mr. Wesley to hold himself out as an “Expert” or “Specialist” in this area of the law.
When John is not working, he enjoys boating, fishing and traveling with his wife and two children. As a diehard Seminole fan, Mr. Wesley, with family in tow, can almost always be found in Tallahassee on game days. As a native of Fort Walton Beach, John also believes strongly in giving back to his community, and currently sits on the Board of Directors of Children in Crisis, Inc, a non-profit foster home neighborhood serving foster children from Okaloosa, Walton, Santa Rosa and Escambia counties.
