Mr. Townsend represented me for a personnal matter and a car accident when I was rear-ended. He is a very helpful and caring attorney and his office staff is helpful and knowledgeable. I will use his office and his services if I am ever in need again.

Jack represented our small business, which had been sued as one of three defendants in a slip and fall case. His thorough knowledge of the law and procedures were incredibly valuable in the case.
His knowledge of courtroom procedures actually assisted the judge on more than one occasion in the course of the week long trial.
Perhaps the most critical aspect of his representation was his ability to connect with the jury in a way that the other four attorneys involved in the case could not. His manner and presentation were outstanding, and no doubt contributed to the favorable result.
Of three defendants in the case, we were the only ones found not liable, and while Jack will tell you that we "gave him good facts," his knowledge and abilities clearly contributed to the outcome.
We could not recommend him more highly!

I endorse this lawyer's work. Jack Townsend is an attorney who thinks outside the box in vigorously representing his clients' interests. He is well liked and respected by Tampa Bay attorneys and judges. I am proud to have him as a friend and trust him, unequivocally. Indeed, this is why I have designated him as my inventory attorney should I become incapacitated or die. Of further note, Jack is a popular and accomplished State & Federal Court Mediator often called upon to help the parties settle complex disputes such as ERISA claims and insurance bad faith.
