About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

I am a Florida lawyer since 2001.  My office has filed hundreds and hundreds of claims in pursuit of employment law/wrongful termination matters, personal injury and consumer cases involving harassment from debt collectors, including cases in Key West, Miami-Dade, Clearwater and Pinellas Counties.  Located just off of I-275.  Same office building location for approximately 12 years.

Local Attorney for local people, but actively accepting Personal Injury, Consumer, Credit Repair and Longshore cases as well as Defense Base Act Cases.

Results and personal attention matter. You don’t have to be just another number and be relegated to ”case managers“ or receptionist. Lawyering is a service based business and “face to face“ consults are always preferred.

Time Well Spent
I reached out to Mr. Gadd for a consult. Our conversation lasted for almost an hour. In that time, I could tell that he seems to be a very knowledgeable, direct, and kind individual who seems passionate about law and helping others understand their specific situations. I enjoyed our conversation.

Excellent Job
He immediately identified what happened in my situation & pointed me in the directions to strike back. This is a man who is well seasoned in the legal industry and will not steer you wrong. He will tell you what’s worth fighting for or not. I’d recommend him to anyone!

Excellent legal advice
Consulted on a aircraft insurance issue with Mr Gadd. His personable phone presence, rapid understanding of the concepts and issues at hand and genuine concern for my situation were comforting and highly educational for me. He was able to make recommendations for the next steps that were reasonable and astute. I would recommended him to a closest friend.

First Meeting
John, really took the time to discuss and understand my issues, which were complicated. It explained where I stood and what information will be needed to go forward with a possible case. I found him friendly and knowledgeable. He even contacted Dean Bernetti, to discuss my case. This was the first time a met him and was very surprised at the time he took with me and his understanding of my feelings.

Wrongful termination
I hired John, because I grew up among excellent lawyers and I knew when I saw mr. Gaad he will be the one, he will have the job done. Excellent communicator, and when I called the office his team was so efficient, they always answer the phone and also helped me with any of my questions i may have had. Mr. Gaad calls back promptly given the amount of clients he has and is extremely professional and has a very friendly atmosphere. I’m very blessed to have Mr.Gaad representing me.

Terrific Counsel
John and I have had a couple of matters on which we have been on opposite sides. I have found him on both occasions to be incredibly cooperative and professional and he knows the law related to employee matters exceedingly well. When I have a need to refer an employee to great counsel, he will be my first choice.

Awesome!
John is awesome. He handled a fairly minor car accident case for me (I was rear ended). Did an awesome job. I gave him all the paperwork, signed whatever I needed to, told him what I'd settle for and went about my life. He took care of the rest and got me more than I wanted without going to court! He is always my "go to" if a legal situation comes up. I ask him if he handles that area and, if not, I know I can get a referral from a trusted source. I feel like I can always count on John, regardless. He will always get first dibs on my cases!!!

Not your average Attorney
I will start off by saying that Mr. Gadd is extraordinary. He was extremely patient and personable and took the time to not only meet with me in person but also listened to my concerns and assisted me in formulating a winning strategy. Mr. Gadd has a unique vibe and energy that is both comforting and assuring which I appreciated very much. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Gadd to anyone seeking legal representation.

Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"W John Gadd has been an advocate of the workingman for two decades. He provides poignant advice to clients and potential clients; often providing an insight that most lawyers are unable or unwilling to do so. Gadd provides answers and a plan of action rather than excuses for not acting. I highly recommend Gadd; I have consulted with Gadd and worked with Gadd on legal issues for two decades. Before giving up on a claim it would be wise to seek Gadd's advice as he may enlighten you on a possible course to seek redress that others overlooked or failed to appreciate."

Debt settlement Attorney | Aug 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I had the pleasure and good fortune of meeting Mr. Gadd through my current employer. After our initial meeting, Mr. Gadd has taken me under his wing, so to speak. As a new attorney, I have little in the way of experience, though I am overflowing with questions, thoughts, and inquiries. Mr. Gadd has entertained hours of this, both on his work phone line and personal line, during business hours and after, and he has guided me through many ethical, procedural, and substantive issues over my first several cases. He has proffered advice, reference material, and work products, and is every bit the mentor every new attorney hopes they have the good fortune to encounter. I am never more excited about Consumer Protection, then when Mr. Gadd and I have a thought provoking discussion, debating new case law, or reviewing old. He keeps me informed, excited, and I believe his influence has shaped the focus of my career."
Debt collection Attorney | Jul 23
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"John Gadd is a lawyer dedicated to fighting for the rights of his clients. John Gadd works hard to ensure that consumers are protected from harassing calls from debt collectors and telemarketers.
