About Edmund

Learn Edmund’s areas of practice.

From the first day of his law practice, Ed Normand has specialized in civil trial law.  He gained invaluable, early experience in general tort and medical malpractice cases with the late Al Cone, one of the foundational trial lawyers in Florida.  In 1991 Butch Wooten offered Ed a position to work at Wooten, Kimbrough and Normand PA where he worked for 23 years.  He was elected a shareholder of the firm in 1996. He retired from the Wooten firm as a Partner in 2014 to start his own law firm Normand Law PLLC.  He started his own firm to dedicate more time and attention to select cases. He accepts only a few limited cases and only those of a very serious nature.

 

Ed's trial experience at the firm has qualified him for the honor of being a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer by the Florida Bar since 1996.  He has been named one of The Florida Legal Elite as selected Florida Trend magazine,  enjoys an "A.V." (the highest rating) from the respected Martindale-Hubbell and has recently been offered an appointment to the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in the State of Florida by the National Trial Lawyers Association. 

 

During his almost twenty years of prosecuting civil lawsuits, Ed has gained experience in many areas of the law including: product liability, medical negligence, semi-tractor-trailer accidents, defective drug and nursing home abuse cases.  Handling these cases has exposed him to virtually every kind of disabling injury including traumatic brain injury, paralysis, spinal cord injury, loss of bodily function, loss of sight, amputation and many others.  He has gained a vast knowledge of medicine and understands how disabling some injuries can be as well as how they can destroy families.  He has also had the unfortunate benefit of learning to understand a family's grief upon the loss of a loved one due to a defective and dangerous product.

 

Ed has served his fellow lawyers through membership on the Florida Justice Association of Young Lawyers Board, Orange County Bar Associations, (Medical Chair-Legal Committee), Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association (Past President, Treasurer, Director), American Justice Association.  He is admitted to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida and the Southern District.

 

As a longtime resident of Central Florida and having handled cases from every county in the region, Ed knows Florida well.  His strong community ties extend to his six children all of whom were born in Florida.  He received his undergraduate from the University of Florida, and having been independent since the age of 15, he proudly attended the University of Texas Law School as recipient of numerous competitive academic scholarships.

 

One of Ed's greatest attributes is his keen legal mind.  He is a former CPA  who passed the CPA exam with flying colors on his first sitting.  He graduated with high honors from the University of Texas where he was named to the Order of the Coif and served as Clerk of the Chancellors, the highest Academic Honorary Group at the University.  He is a MENSA member (limited  to the top 2% of I.Q,'s in the nation) and was honored for his high score on the Florida Bar Exam.

 

Ed has won multimillion dollar recoveries on behalf of his clients but is not afraid to seek justice at any level.  He has gone to battle against some of the largest corporations in the world and has litigated extensively on both U.S. and international claims.

 

Most of all, Ed derives great pleasure from using his mind to right wrongs and do his part to make the world a better and safer place.

Blessed to find this law firm
After being rear ended by a distracted driver in 2016, my life was turned upside down and changed forever. Normand Law has helped me get some normalcy back to my life. They were not only able to get all my medical bills covered but were also able to recover funds for damages which has blessed our family tremendously. The entire staff was extremely helpful and available to me when needed. In saying that, I would like to highlight two exceptional individuals on their staff that I don’t just consider hired staff but have been blessed to think of them as friends. First, Michelle, the Office manager made me feel as if my case was truly personal to her and always made me feel less anxious about anything that was developing regarding my case. Michelle is a superstar, and anyone would be lucky to have her in their staff. Finally, there is Alex. Alex was available to me even when he shouldn’t have been. Going above and beyond at every turn and always making me feel like I was his only client, even though I know he was swamped with other cases. He was always available to answer my stupid questions, and yes, contrary to popular belief there are stupid questions. He never seemed like I was bothering him and always “gave it to me straight.” I feel truly blessed in meeting these two fine people and hope to carry on a dialogue with them for years to come. Thank you, Ed Normand Law, for your commitment and follow-up on my case and you can be assured that I will refer anyone that needs legal services to your office.

Small business owner against big corporation.
I am the owner of A UPS Store small business, and had been dealing with a Freight Bill that was more than double what had been quoted me. I had been trying to get it resolved for over 1 year without success. When I finally called Normand Law, they wrote the company a letter and I had a corrected originally quoted invoice within a week. I would recommend no other law firm than Normand Law!

They did what the other lawyers could not do
I had a personal injury case. I went to a lawyer who has bill board ads and TV adds all over. That was a mistake. They sent me to all these medical places and wracked up a bunch of medical bills and then dropped me owing all the bills that they told me I did not have to worry about. I was so lucky to find Normand Law. The lawyers there jumped on my case and were getting things done right away. After the first lawyer I lost all hope of getting my injuries or medical bills taken care of. Normand law took care of all that and jumped on it making calls and whatever they do and got me a settlement in months and got all of my bills paid as well. So now I have a settlement for me and don't owe a bunch of medical bills.

From a satisfied client
I was in a car crash in Atlanta, Georgia. We were in the front of a double rear end accident. We were visiting Atlanta from Florida so we were unsure of what to do. Lucky for me, I contacted Edmund Normand and he took my case. It was super easy for me to get a settlement it was more than I initially expected. He was easy to contact and there were no problems, I was in good hands. If I ever have another personal injury case I will definetly contact him again.

Trustworthy, experienced and worked in our best interest.
We worked with Mr. Normand and his assistant Toni when our daughter was injured at a theme park. Their professionalism, kindness and responsiveness to our needs was fantastic and we were pleased with the outcome of our case. I would highly recommend them. They care about their clients and are easy to work with and are experts in their field.

Professional
Mr. Normand and his staff adhered to prioritizing my concerns as a victim of a MVA. He personally made sure I would not have the burden of dealing with any insurance agencies when receiving treatment for my injuries. His office personnel were always cordial when coming into the office. When I would send email communication, I would receive prompt answers and that assured me that I was being taken care of and my well-being was taken into consideration. I felt confident that his involvement resulted in the best possible outcome. I am pleased with my experience and would recommend Mr. Normand to anyone who needs to be sure they are not overlooked when the unexpected happens.

The Right Stuff and The Real Deal
If you are looking for the Best, look no further. We are pleased to have Ed and his group on our side as they work extremely hard on our case. I have been with Mr. Ed Normand’s group for the past 2 years and they are the REAL Deal! Ed truly knows the Florida legal system and all the top attorneys in the Central Florida region. He knows your rights and will defend it 100%. I cannot express enough gratitude for what Ed and his team has done for our family. His communication to us on a timely manner has been spot on. He spends the extra time to guide us through the process so that we could sleep at night without fear. I am blessed to have Ed on our side as he defends our rights through the legal system. I highly recommend that you reach out to his group if you need one of the TOP Notch Attorney in town.

Smart and aggressive
I was hurt at an Assisted Living Facility. I had fractured bones and required surgery. I contacted other law firms. It was hard to even get a lawyer to talk to. I contacted Attorney Ed Normand at Whkpa.com. He was great. He took my Calls personally. He met with me and stayed in touch. He was so aggressive and worked so hard and settled my case and I was very happy. The fees were fair and he even worked to reduce my bills to make sure I was taken care of. Attorney Normand would not stop until he got me compensated. The other lawyers were trying to deny my case and Attorney Normand would not stop until he tracked down the needed witnesses and won the case. I was ready to give up but he would not take no for an answer and got me a great settlement and then worked more after that to make sure that everything was completed so I had no lingering bills or problems. I was so impressed with his concern and care. Their firm does not advertise so they have time to work extra hard to make sure clients like me are taken care of. I strongly recommend Attorney Normand. He was a CPA and is a Mensa member so he was steps ahead of the other side all the way. His staff is very nice and have been with him a long time. I am happy they were my lawyers. My husband died and they represent me in that case now also and again I could not ask for better. They care!

Edmund Normand: Orlando, FL
Edmund was very successful in negotiating a settlement in an auto accident case where I was not at fault. When the Insurance company went for the ultimate lowball, he helped me maintain my original financial goal for compensation.

Car Crash Victim
This is a knowledgeable, caring, experienced attorney. I was referred to him by another attorney who is a family member. I had recieved injuries from a car crash, requiring surgery, and some of the problems will remain with me for the rest of my life. He was always responsive to my questions and concerns about the case, and made sure I got the right medical care without any more stress. He and Toni, his front line assistant, were always there with answers and reassurance. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Normand to anyone who needs an honest, highly experienced professional to handle their case.

Victim of poor drivers.
My experience with Mr. Normand was excellent. He listened well to my problem, asked intelligent, knowledgeable questions. Then he advised what he thought would be appropriate and possible results. I had to have some Doctor checks done, and documentation of Doctor visits already done. He is very well versed in all the procedures and steps to proceed thru the quagmire that is the American Legal System. He also came up with options about how to proceed at various points. It all ended with a very satisfactory result, and I would highly recommend him. I am a retired law enforcement officer, and have dealt with a number of attorneys over the years, with various impressions of them and their ability to succeed for their clients. Mr. Normand is definitely who I will call if I ever need an attorney in the future.

Very professional and helpful!
Ed Normand is a very knowledgeable attorney when it comes to medical malpractice. He was very professional, responsive to our needs, and explained how each step would go in the process. He didn't back down from hospital or corporate attorneys and was able to help us secure a large settlement. I would highly recommend Ed Normand!!!

Most rewarding experience!
I would recommend Edmund A. Normand to represent anyone needing a very knowledgeable, experinced attorney. He executed my law suit with stength and total committment to my best interest. He was always so considerate of my physical limits and made the entire procedure effortless for me. Aside from his professionalism, his legal acuteness, he is very kind and reassuring. He was friendly and easy to talk with and he does something special, "he listens." I hope I never have to go through another law suit, but, if I do, there would be no doubt of my choice. If you need someone to help you with a legal problem you would do well to call Mr. Normand.

Dedicated, Results Oriented, Professional Lawyer
Mr. Normand was recommended to me after working with another lawyer who was not professional nor getting results. I am extremely grateful to the person who referred me as well as to Mr. Normand and his team. Mr. Normand deserves many accolades for his professionalism, communication skills, dedication, and most importantly the results he achieved. Mr. Normand was able to overcome several obstacles in my case, including a signed release. Even though the case has been settled, Mr. Normand's follow up has been extremely valuable to me. I had peace of mind throughout the whole process having complete confidence in Mr. Normand.

The knowledge and experience to take on the big boys
In 2007 my son and I were hit from behind by a school bus, propelling us into the back of a stationary public bus. I woke up in the ambulance very confused and disoriented, but soon came to understand how lucky we were to be alive. My SUV had been totalled, my head was pounding from a concussion, my neck and wrist broken and my 12 yr old son in another amubulance with his own injuries. But we were alive. My husband called a lawyer friend who immediately recommended Ed as the lawyer he would want if his wife and son were in a simlar situation. We are forever grateful. Ed was not only a genuinely compassionate lawyer but also very thorough and integrity-minded in all legal matters. We soon realized how important it was to have an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer who could navigate the turbulant waters of cases involving a school board. Later, when I was diagnosed as having sustained a mild traumatic brain injury from the accident, Ed showed great compassion and guidance in all matters involving TBI (traumatic brain injury) issues, which not all lawyers have experience in handling. Ed and his staff did a magnificent job handling the case from start to finish. We were pleased with the outcome and almost 5 years after the accident, I am still receiving help from the best doctors in the area, thanks to Ed's knowledge and guidance. We have recommended him many times over to our friends, neighbors and employees. My son is now considering a minor in law for his upcoming college years, due to this experience and Ed's effectiveness and integrity as a lawyer.

Professional Representation
Ed handled a personal injury case for me involving a major theme park. From our very first contact he was extremely pleasant to speak with and took a genuine interest in my case. He consistently kept an open door policy over the 3 year period it took to settle the matter. He and Toni Perez were a great team to work with. They stayed in constant contact with me and kept me updated. They were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I might have had, and were always thorough in making sure I understood what was going on and where my case stood. I am extremely glad I made contact with Ed and very satisfied with his assistance.

Feeling Safe
In the summer of 2008, I had an unfortunate fall at a theme park in Orlando. Dazed and confused, we eventually left the park and the next day returned to Oklahoma. My injuries were substantial. I had not seen a doctor or gone to an emergency room in Orlando because we had saved money for this dream trip for many years. And I just didn't want to miss it. Back in Oklahoma, My husband contacted a lawyer we knew and by some miracle of God, he found Ed Normand.....and by extension, Toni Perez. What a pair! They made me feel important - as though my case was significant and had weight. Toni was the life-link. The kindest person with whom I have ever spoken. Ed was calm and reassuring and very focused - always a positive force. They took on the big boys, and the big boys listened. They took care of me. They made me feel safe. Is there anything better than that? I don't think so.

Highly competent and very trustworthy
I am a Canadian who was involved in an accident on the I95 on my way to vacation in Florida. After getting some unusual phone calls from the person who hit my car's insurance, a friend of mine recommended that I hire Mr. Normand to help navigate the US insurance system. I could not be happier with the results! He not only navigated the complicated cross-border issues with ease, but also got us a nice settlement to compensate for our lost vacation. I can easily recommend him and Toni.
