About me

 


Alyson George Bulnes has dedicated her career to litigating personal injury matters.  Mrs. George Bulnes began her career as a defense attorney, defending claims made against the largest automobile insurance carrier in Florida and its insureds.  Although she gained invaluable experience and knowledge in that position, she quickly realized that she would be better suited fighting for the rights of those who are injured instead of defending a billion dollar insurance carrier.  Armed with the knowledge of how insurance carriers evaluate and defend claims, Mrs. George Bulnes joined a prominent Clearwater personal injury firm as a litigation attorney handling various types of cases including: car accidents (including those involving DUI/punitive damages), slip/trip and falls, cemetery/crematory/funeral home negligence/malpractice, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and many other types of cases involving negligence that lead to personal injuries.  After gaining valuable trial and litigation experience, Mrs. George Bulnes accepted a position as the litigation attorney for a well-known Tampa firm.  While working for the Tampa firm in Ybor City, Mrs. George Bulnes litigated motorcycle crashes, negligent security cases, slip/trip and fall cases, automobile accidents, daycare negligence, and many other types of cases involving negligence that lead to personal injuries.  After working under the tutelage and mentorship of some of the best trial lawyers in the Tampa Bay area for seven years, Mrs. George Bulnes decided to join her longtime friend and colleague Ben Stechschulte, who is a Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer, to form Stechschulte Bulnes. 


 


Mrs. George Bulnes moved to Florida in 2002 to attend Stetson University College of Law.  While at Stetson, she was a member of the Moot Court Board, notably winning an award for Best Brief at the 2005 Orseck Competition.  Mrs. George Bulnes graduated from the University of Dayton cum laude in 2002 having been a participant and leader in many clubs and activities on campus.  Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Mrs. George Bulnes is proud of her Kentucky roots and loves all things traditionally associated with Kentucky: horse racing, bourbon, college basketball, and southern hospitality.  Having married a Tampa native who has a large Cuban family, Mrs. George Bulnes also loves all things are traditionally associated with Tampa and the Cuban heritage, and is proud that Tampa is her "forever home." When she is not zealously advocating for the rights of her clients, she enjoys spending time with family, visiting with friends, prayer, going to the beach, cooking/baking, traveling, attending college sporting events, attending boxing matches, snorkeling, volunteering, yoga, and meditation.
