A little about me. I come from a long line of doctors. My dad was an internist and my grandfather was an OBGYN.  I had an uncle who was a surgeon and another uncle who was a neurosurgeon. Doctors in my family tree go all the way back to my great great grandfather who was a surgeon in the civil war.  Although we came from a medically dominated family my brother I both deviated from this path and became attorneys.

Virtually all of our practice is devoted to representing and caring for “people with medical problems", personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and social security disability.  Coming from the background I came from has proven to be a positive and helpful resource.

Personally I am involved with my Church, Christ Community Church, serve on the Board of Directors of Tri-County Human Services, Inc. and have served on the Board of Directors of Meals on Wheels. 

Professionally I am a member of The Florida Bar, An Eagle member of The Florida Justice Association and The Polk County Trial Lawyers Association.  I am also a member of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America.

I was selected in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 for inclusion in The Top 100 Trial Lawyers for the State of Florida. I am also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, of which fewer than 1% of US lawyers are members.

Need a lawyer....Stephen Brooks Law Group is the place to go!!
After a car accident which totaled my car, I was referred by a friend to see Stephen Brooks. I couldn't be more pleased with my results. My case worker, Sharteen Viera, kept me informed on how my case was progressing and worked her butt off to make sure I received a settlement. I was very pleased with the results... Receiving more than I ever thought I would get. I know Shar played a huge part in getting me the maximum amount possible. She's the BEST!!! I would recommend Brook's to anyone.

Excellent experience
I came to Brooks Law Group after a car accident in June of 2013 when I was driving with my grandsons to a friends house. My friend recommended Steve Brooks. I am so pleased with my settlement more than what I thought. Sharteen kept me up to date on all details of my case and was always there. I recommend Brooks Law Group

Amazing attorney
I truly appreciate all Mr. Brooks has done for me. He has obtained a settlement far in access of what I had expected. I was referred by a friend and he treated me like family. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone he is honest and kind. Thank you again Mr. Brooks for treating treating me like I was part of your family.

Very Impressed
Working with Brooks Law Group has been an extremely pleasant experience. I highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of an attorney.

Satisfied
My experience with going to the doctor and getting everything taken care of was great because I am a single individual. The only part that I didn't like was the time limit of the case but that is common for most personal injury claims. Steve Brooks got me the maximum settlement he could get and I am very happy.

Best Decision Ever!!
I would like to thank Steve and his staff for a wonderful experience. They really made everything simple for me and kept my best interest in mind. I could not have asked for a better man to represent me in my time of need. Going to him with my case was the best decision I've ever made.

expressing our thanks
I just wanted to take this time to express my thankfulness to Steve for his thoughtfulness, patience and concern to me and my husband. He is always there when I need him. I started doing business with Brooks Law Group in 2010. Steve Brooks has well knowable, smiling, friendly people working for the firm. He has treated us like family and has taken us on bus trips to baseball and football games as well as trips to movies. They also have cookouts for us and our family members. We fellowship like family and Steve is never too busy to enjoy the event with us. ( we love that ). Steve and the Brooks Law Group fought hard to solve our cases and we were well pleased with the results. We will always recommend clients to you. Thanks Steve and the Brooks Law Group James and Refair

Great help when we needed it
My experience with Brooks Law Group was far better then I thought it would be. Going to see a lawyer can be a bit intimidating, but Mr. Brooks is so calm and so easy to talk to that before you know it you are totally relaxed and having a great open conversation with him and by the time you're done you know that you are in good hands! I have in the past , and will continue to recommend Brooks Law Group to everyone.

September 2012 Review
I have an Elder Law Practice and have represented several guardians and Personal Representatives who have hired Stephen Brooks to represent them in personal injury or wrongful death cases. My clients and I have always been pleased with his representation and the outcomes of their cases. He and his staff are knowledgable and efficient. They also care for the person involved in the case, looking out for what is best for the client in the overall sense. Litigation can be long and emotional and Mr. Brooks and his staff help the client through their case and let them know what choices they have and consult with them on how to proceed. It is an excellent firm to work with.

BROOKS LAW GROUP....AN EXCELLENT CHOICE
I am a retired person and I have several unavoidable medical issues that prevents me from working. My pension check barely covers my mortgage and groceries. My necessary medical bills sometimes exceeds $1200 monthly. I have a school age child and I was denied social security benefits two times. I was also denied all other assistance. I found Attorney Stephen Brooks at Brooks Law Group and began my journey. I told him my problem and he assured me that he would do his very best to assist me and help me find a solution. His staff worked very hard in helping me get all my necessary paperwork together for my court date. It was a long road and a lot of obstacles. Near the end I was having problems getting my doctors to submit forms to vouch for me. Mr. Brooks worked extra hours to ensure that I was ready to be represented properly. I was about to give up because of the pressure but Mr. Brooks had everything under control. He represented me to the fullest and the case was a success. I thank God for Mr. Brooks. He is a life saver. Because of him, his staff and their hard work & knowledge of the job, I have been granted my Social Security Disability which I so desperately needed. I highly recommend Mr. Brooks. He is an excellent attorney an a wonderful person.

Fantastic insurance litigators!
I was in a situation where I was being denied insurance coverage for a stolen vehicle. I really thought I was just going to have to have to accept the loss, even though I knew I should have been covered. What do you do against an insurance company right? Fortunately I saw an ad for The Brooks Law Group and saw that they do this sort of work. It was contingency based, so what did I have to loose. Steve not only got my money, but took care of me while I was without a car. If you need help with the law, talk to these folks, talking is free, and you never know they may be able to help you out too.

My Personal Review
My husband was in an accident back in January. We called the number they should on tv for an attorney to call you and we waited. No return call and then we saw the commerical for Brooks Law Group. We called them and told them what happened. They had a representative come and talk to us fast. We told them what we knew and then we signed the papers to get it started. From the date we signed papers in January til we got a new car was a bout 2 weeks. We then waited 5 more months found out they settled quickly and got our first cut from the settlement. A week later we got the last part. We were surprised of how fast we got our settlement. Thanks!

Thanks
Everything got done for me by this firm. Used this firm as it was close to my home and easy to get to. I only had to deal with a case worker but still worked out for me. I would use these people again if I have misfortune again.
