About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Thomas M. Prestia began his legal career serving as a prosecutor at the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. During his tenure as a prosecutor, Mr. Prestia gained the knowledge and experience necessary to manage and litigate cases from the government’s perspective. This knowledge and experience has been critical in defending individuals facing criminal charges, as well as in his general trial practice.

After leaving the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. Prestia further developed his trial practice by working at a leading medical malpractice firm. There he gained valuable insight into the operation of medical practices, experience in evaluating and litigating serious bodily injury and wrongful death cases, as well as, representing physicians and other medical providers in Department of Health and Agency for Healthcare Administration investigations. This knowledge and experience aids Mr. Prestia in representing victims and their families in wrongful death, aviation, and general personal injury cases.

While in law school, Mr. Prestia excelled both inside and outside of the classroom. While graduating in the top 10% of his class, he also served as a Certified Mediator for the Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orlando and earned several awards competing nationwide on the Barry Student Trial Advocacy Team.

When he is not at work, Mr. Prestia enjoys fishing, golf, and spending time with his wife and bulldog.

Mr. Prestia is admitted to practice before all state courts in Florida and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

100% Satisfied with my experience! Would Definitely Recommend Mr. Prestia to anyone!
I feel so blessed that I connected with Mr. Thomas Prestia. I had a difficult situation that I needed assistance maneuvering through and didn't see a great outcome but just wanted to get help taking care of things the proper way. Mr. Prestia and his firm went totally above and beyond for me and I got much more of a positive outcome than I had ever expected! He always returned my calls promptly and gave me such peace of mind during my entire process. I would use his services again if necessary and would definitely recommend him to anyone! The man was straight and honest with me from the very beginning. Additionally he had experience and knowledge that undoubtedly played a huge part in the success of my case. He gets a big 100% A+ grade from me!

EXCELLENT! Thomas puts your stress at ease and handles all the work in a timely matter . Thomas ALWAYS has your best interest in
I reached out to Thomas and he was able to meet me within 3 hours to discuss my case in person and privately. Thomas works each case himself...he doesn’t give your case to a “group of attournies” and he stays in contact with you at all times. Immediatly you are reilieved of any stress regarding the case. He got me THE BEST outcome regarding my case.

Thomas Prestia - Great Attorney
I engaged Attorney Prestia to deal with a landlord issues. The landlord(s) were dispicable people who thought they could just do what they wanted and abuse the tenant (my family and I). Attorney Prestia, with his skill and professionalism, stopped them in their tracks and made them pay for not complying with the statutes of law. Attorney Prestia operates with compassion for his clients and excercises tenacity in his approach to the issue at hand to achieve the results expected.
