We can help you receive the benefits you’re entitled to and file claims against the insurance company when they don’t provide them. We provide you with advice and counsel during the course of your claim so that you know what your rights are under the law. We help workers.

Experience matters. Since 1992, Frank W. Piazza has been helping injured workers receive the benefits they deserve.

 

Mr. Piazza received his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of South Florida in 1987, followed by his law degree from the University of Florida in 1990. Since May of 1992, he has represented literally thousands of injured workers in Southwest Florida, and has handled all types of cases.

 

“My approach to representing people is perhaps different than others. I actually enjoy meeting with and getting to know each of my clients. In many instances, they become my friends. I am happy to answer their questions and explain each stage of their case with them. That’s my job. I want my clients to feel cared for. When you become a client, you become part of our family. That’s my approach. Old school? Perhaps, but sometimes there’s only one way to get the job done, the right way!”

 

Mr. Piazza’s professional memberships have included the Florida Workers’ Advocates, American Bar Association, American Trial Lawyers Association, Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, Florida Academy of Professional Mediators, Association for Conflict Resolution, and the Orange, Lee and Collier County Bar Associations. He is triple-certified as a mediator by the Florida Supreme Court. He has lectured at educational conferences at the invitation of the Florida Bar Association.

 

Mr. Piazza resides in Naples with his wife of 33 years, Angela, and their two dogs, Ella and Annie. He is an active drummer, and frequently plays and records music with local musicians. He admits to being a car buff, and enjoys taking his car to the racetrack in Sebring from time to time to, “Blow off a little steam.”

First Class Lawyer - Nice Man!
Frank provided extremely personal and diligent representation after I was injured on the job and employer denied responsibility. He clearly takes getting justice for his clients very personally. He worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in end obtained a very favorable result. Coral his assistant was also very helpful through all phases of the case. He clearly is a nice man who believes strongly in trying to right a wrong for a client and treated me with respect and dignity at all times. He was also so patient spending lots of time explaining details and always returned my calls within a few hours. Frank was a lucky find!

Great experience
I am so happy I hired Mr. Piazza to represent me in my Worker's Comp case. He and Coral, his assistant, made the whole experience very easy for me. They both took the time to answer my many questions. Mr. Piazza is very professional and knowledgeable. He is also very patient and kind. He explained every step and always made sure I knew what to expect. I felt very comfortable with the process thanks to his care and concern. I would highly recommend his services.

Trustworthy and reliable
Mr. Piazza, Frank, made me feel like I was not alone. I knew that he was a call away when I had a question. Frank fought for what I needed, to get through a tough time. As far as attorneys go, he's the best. I heard a nurse say one time, "Oh, you have Frank Piazza? He doesn't lose." Trust me, you can trust him to take care of you. And he's a great guy.

"I endorse this lawyer....Unconditionally. I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Piazza on numerous occasions during my 17 years as a professional neutral. The legal advice which he provides to his clients is above reproach.
