About me

Mr. LaBar grew up in Central Florida. He attended the University of Florida and received a degree in Psychology and in Economics.Following undergraduate work, he attended the University of Florida Law School.


While studying in Gainesville, he worked for a prestigious personal injury law firm and learned firsthand what it takes to represent people in disadvantaged situations.He used this knowledge, along with his experience as an attorney representing large insurance companies, to effectively represent his present day clients that are now fighting against those same insurance companies.


Mr. LaBar represents all men, women, and children who have been injured by the negligence of others. These cases include personal injury matters resulting from car accidents, truck accidents, slips and falls, dog bite cases as well wrongful deaths. An aggressive approach is always used and is absolutely necessary to make sure the full value of each case is reached.


Besides working with personal injury clients, Mr. LaBar has defended thousands of people wrongfully accused of crimes. He has represented clients in cases ranging from simple DUI , Juvenile Charges, Fraud and all the way to First Degree Murder. In all matters, Mr. LaBar takes an aggressive approach to litigation. A multi part strategy including motion practice, pre-trial negotiations, and trial practice is often the most effective solution to a client's case. Mr. LaBar devotes his practice to Orange, Seminole Counties and all surrounding counties.
