Matt Hunt was voted the Best Divorce Lawyer in Jacksonville by Folio Weekly, is a multiple time SuperLawyer and is the compassionate, but fierce voice behind our family law division. Clients say, “Since the very first day, Mr Hunt took my case seriously, he went beyond the rest: demonstrated high professionalism, kept contact with me on the phone during the most difficult times of my life, talked to witnesses, and most importantly showed compassion to my case and the facts. He is the best attorney in Jacksonville by far, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody in the area.
William K. Walker has been licensed to practice law in Florida since 2010 and licensed to practice law in Georgia since 2012. We are grateful to have him join our civil litigation trial team. Mr. Walker focuses his practice on the litigation of injury and wrongful death cases throughout Florida. In fact, he (like the rest of our firm) only represents plaintiffs who have been physically injured as a result of the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. We don’t represent insurance companies.
