Nearly 80,000 attorneys are active in the state of Florida, which is understandable considering the Sunshine State is the third-largest state in the country. The size and geographic complexity of Florida means that for those considering filing a class-action lawsuit, finding a local expert attorney to represent them is particularly important and may be especially difficult.

Given its position on the Gulf of Mexico and the East Coast of the U.S., Florida is frequently struck by devastating hurricanes. Many class-action claims have been filed in the state against insurance companies and other financial companies in connection with hurricane claims. Environmental actions, such as claims against BP over the Deepwater Horizon spill, are also common in Florida.

If you have been affected by the actions of a corporation or even a government agency, you may be eligible to file or join a class-action claim that can help you receive compensation for your losses. Consultations with attorneys, including those on this list, are free, and you likely won’t need to pay any fees unless you win your case.
