I am an experienced trail lawyer at Mickey Keenan P.A. who represents individuals injured because of the negligence of others. I focus my practice in the areas of automobile, motorcycle, trucking and boating accidents, trip/slip and falls, and negligent security.

I am a third generation Tampa native. Born and raised in West Tampa, I graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and then went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from The Florida State University. After living in Washington D.C. and New York City, I realized I thoroughly enjoyed helping people and decided the best way to make that into a career was to go to law school. I knew the only place for me to go to law school was home to the Tampa Bay area, and Stetson University College of Law.

While in law school, I found a passion for trial work and focused on trial advocacy. After graduating, I became a criminal defense attorney with the Pinellas County Public Defender’s Office, handling a wide variety of cases from misdemeanors to felonies. Next, I worked for the law firm of Doyle and McCabe, P.A. where I continued helping people arrested for crimes and expanded my practice to include helping people injured by the negligence of others. In 2018, he decided to solely focus on personal injury cases and joined the legal department of one of the largest insurance companies in the United States.

I have tried over 100 cases and for more than 15 years represented thousands of people. I know how to overcome obstacles created by insurance companies, what they are thinking, and how they will try to limit or deny fair compensation to injury victims. I am a zealous trial attorney devoted to advocating on behalf of people injured in the Tampa Bay area and am excited to work for justice every day for each and every one of my clients.  

In 2022, I joined Mickey Keenan, P.A. The firm’s core principles to help injured clients heal, achieve best case results by obtaining maximum compensation, and maintain excellent customer service matched my own compassion and desire to help others in the best possible ways. With the firm’s tools and services, I will take on any insurance company out there.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Uccello helped me with a traffic ticket. He was very personable, easy to get talk to, and the best part was that he got my ticket dismissed and I never even had to go to court. I would highly recommend Mr. Uccello!

God sent!
I was wrongfully accused of a criminal action far from home and I never saw it coming. This experience is one I would not wish on anyone except, my accuser. I was fortunate enough to meet Joe Uccello in the cafeteria of the Pinellas County Court building. Joe was “God sent”; I explained my dilemma and asked for his assistance. Immediately, Joe outlined the necessary steps he would take in this matter. He was professional yet, a regular person, engaged, thorough and comforting. He told me not to worry, go home and I will begin my investigation. As Joe proceeded and throughout the process he was timely, honest, efficient and always kept me up to date. In just six weeks, Joe completed his investigation assembled the facts and presented his finding to the District Attorney’s Office. As a result, the criminal action was completely dismissed and my integrity is restored. Further, Joe’s excellent support team headed by Ashley began the process of having my arrest record expunged, as if the incident never occurred. Unlike some attorneys, billing hours are generally their focus but Joe’s focus was always doing the right thing at a reasonable rate. I owe a debt of gratitude to his law firm but, especially Joe and Ashley. They are true professionals in regular folk’s cloths.

Awesome job
Joe was able to help me get my charges reduced; he was efficient and timely. He honestly did whatever he could to help me. If I ever need an attorney again, I will be contacting Joe. Highly recommended by my family and I.

Title is fine.
Mr. Uccello represented our family in a criminal related matter and after consultation, discussion and engagement did a excellent job and having the case dismissed with prejudice. Would highly recommend Joe as counsel as he was thorough, well prepared and always readily available to discuss the specific matter and available alternatives. Academic and experienced in his areas of expertise.

Bad choice if you want proper representation
Spent over $5000 on attorney fees with the Kelly McCabe law firm. Their efforts were minimal to put it mildly. The end results were unjust to say the least! Would NOT recommend Joe or Kelly as attorneys. WHat a waste of money and to boot I ended up doing hard time!
