Stuart M. Address

About me

Mr. Address has practiced civil and business litigation law for approximately 25 years. He is a member of the Florida Bar and all Federal district courts within Florida, as well as the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is also a member of the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.


Mr. Address graduated from Rutgers University in 1982 with a bachelor of arts degree in political science with departmental distinction. Mr. Address proceeded to attend The George Washington University Law School, in Washington, D.C., where he graduated with honors in 1985.


Mr. Address will work hard to provide you with the best representation possible and treat you with the respect you deserve as a client. If you want an Attorney that promptly returns calls, responds to your letters and emails, keeps you up-to-date on the status and regularly provides documents relevant to your case then you should contact Stuart M. Address, Esq.


Mr. Address also prides himself on the fact that his wife, an experienced paralegal and contract negotiator, serves now as his paralegal and office manager. Mrs. Pass Address assists in making the Law Offices of Stuart M. Address, P.A., a family affair where both the attorney and paralegal have a vested interest in the success and satisfaction of their clients. Indeed, clients may expect that discussion about their situations expand beyond business hours to whenever either Mr. Address or Mrs. Pass Address happen to come up with ideas which may be of benefit to their clients. Evenings, weekends, and holidays are no barrier to the ability of Mr. Address and Mrs. Pass Address to communicate with each other for the benefit of the firm's clients.


Mr. Address prides himself on aggressively representing your legal interests. At the same time, Mr. Address seeks to provide  counseling in situations where your legal matter has other practical consequences which should be considered. Mr. Address’ goal is to advise you both about the law which relates to your legal matter and the real world practical issues which might affect the decisions you need to make before and during any litigation - even if it means that sometimes Mr. Address' recommendation is for a client to avoid or defer litigation in favor of alternate sources of dispute resolution.


Mr. Address has practiced law for approximately 25 years in small, medium and large law firms, including those which contain more than 200 attorneys. Several years ago, Mr. Address decided to open his own legal practice designed to provide more personalized attention to his clients while minimizing the layers of typical law firm bureacracy. With the Law Offices of Stuart M. Address, P.A., clients and potential clients get directly to either Mr. Address or Mrs. Pass Address who can immediately convey information to Mr. Address.


Mr. Address seeks to provide you with quality legal advice as well as the personal attention you have the right to expect during a situation of stress and uncertainty. Mr. Address strives to maximize his availability to you, his clients, by being available via email in addition to the more traditional forms of communication. Mr. Address’ goal is simply to be there for you when you need him.
