PAUL M. SILVESTRI

Paul’s practice focuses on defending insurance policyholders and carriers in cases involving property damage, slip and fall and auto accident injury. Paul began his legal career litigating in State and Federal Courts representing corporate and individual clients in real property, contract and bankruptcy disputes.

In 2016, Paul was elected to represent the 6th Circuit of the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors. He is also an active member of the St. Petersburg Bar Association, St. Petersburg Bar Foundation, and the Barney Masterson American Inn of Court, an organization comprised of local attorneys and judges in both the private and public sector, having served on the executive board.
