How to Find the Best Personal Injury Attorney for Your Case
You will want to be confident that you have found the best personal injury lawyer in St. Petersburg, Florida for your case. Here is what you should be sure to look for:
Personal Injury Knowledge and Experience
Choosing the best St. Petersburg personal injury attorney will be the defining aspect in the success of your case. Your attorney should have a vast amount of experience in personal injury law, and be well-versed in all the principles and complexities of personal injury law in Florida. For over 28 years, Scott Distasio has been dedicated to investigating cases, negotiating settlements, and litigation. Scott’s trial expertise is unsurpassed and renowned throughout the state of Florida.
Scott Distasio is Board Certified in Trial Law by the Florida Bar, meaning that he has passed an extensive competency exam in trial law. This should be of great importance to you when choosing an attorney because less than 1% of all Florida attorneys can make this same claim. Distasio has also earned an AV rating by the independent Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, as well as a 10 rating by AVVO. Both ratings are the highest ratings an attorney can receive per either rating service. Many personal injury lawyers in this market may say they can produce results, but very few can say they have received these credentials by respected, independent, non-biased rating systems.
Endorsements from Clients & Other Lawyers

Ability to Go to Trial
It is true that most personal injury cases never go to trial. However, insurance companies are well aware of which law firms have the capability to succeed in the courtroom. The law firm that represents you is often the determining factor when it comes to settling claims. When the Distasio Law Firm takes your case, our experience will enable us to confidently pursue the best course of action for you. Scott Distasio is a board certified civil trial lawyer with the resources and experience to protect your interests, and if it means going to trial, is well prepared to do so, always representing you and your interests in the best possible way.
Scott Distasio, Esq.
Scott is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer (achieved by less than 1% of Florida lawyers), and has tried cases of all kinds in both state and federal courts. In order to be a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, an attorney must pass a trial law proficiency test and have widespread trial experience. Because of this distinction, Scott is able to call himself an expert trial lawyer.
What Our St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys Can Do For You
It’s not always just about the money. Yes, as a client you want compensation from the negligent person to pay for the damages you have incurred, but you will also want the negligent party to be accountable for their damaging actions. We understand completely, and make that an important aspect when seeking justice for you.
If you are unable to work after being injured by a negligent party, our St. Petersburg personal injury lawyers will fight to see that you recover lost wages as well as any wages that your injury may prevent you from earning in the future.
Many clients require continued medical care after an injury. Our personal injury attorneys can help you determine the type of medical care you require and get compensation for past and future medical bills, even if the negligent party refuses to pay for the necessary care. We don’t like to take no for an answer!
Pain Suffering & Loss of Enjoyment of Life:
Someone else’s negligence can easily take away your constitutional rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If that happens to you, we stand ready to represent you against the person who took away those rights from you and was responsible for your losses.
