He spent nearly a decade as an Assistant State Attorney in Brevard County, where he prosecuted serious crimes. Paul was chosen his office’s “Trial Attorney of the Year” in 1996. He was also recognized for his ability in working with people victimized by crime. Paul eventually became the Chief Trial Attorney for sex crimes and crimes against children.
Paul left the State Attorney’s Office in 1997 to work for Steven A. Bagen & Associates, eventually becoming the head of litigation. He conducted many personal injury trials all over the State of Florida. From 2006 – 2013, Paul was a partner at the law firm of Hutson & Brockway, P.A. Paul rejoined our firm in January of 2014.
Paul is a member of the Florida Bar as well as the Federal Bars for the Middle District and Northern District of Florida. Paul became Board Certified in Civil Trial in 2008 and is therefore allowed to describe himself as an expert in civil trial work, the field that includes personal injury and wrongful death cases.
