About me

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.
