Mr. Burguieres is a founding member of the firm having been associated with a prominent Tampa Bay Area civil litigation firm from 1984 to 1992.   He is an accomplished trial lawyer with a long history of winning and closing complex litigation disputes as well as a reputation for obtaining quick recovery of a client’s problem accounts receivable whether for institutional lenders, banks, credit unions or building material suppliers in the construction industry.  Mr. Burguieres has successfully obtained large jury verdicts in favor of clients whether for business wrongs or for individuals who are victims of the negligence and carelessness of others.   In addition, he has negotiated substantial settlements during well over a hundred cases and during the course of litigation.    As he is quick to say, “I abhor costly, time-consuming and unfocused litigation due to efforts that delay.  My clients typically do not want litigation that spirals out of control and so issue containment is crucial to obtain efficiencies and keep the pace of a lawsuit on a desirable timetable”.  


“My focus for over 25 years has been protection of businesses and of my individual clients in commercial disputes, business litigation, injury claims and collection of problem accounts receivable.   My experience combined with a proven ability to litigate in any appropriate forum, enables me to quickly spot key issues and identify solutions to the diverse legal problems my clients face.  I take pride in being able to solve legal problems efficiently and cost effectively. Some legal concerns are simply too important to be handled by inexperienced associates or by an attorney delegated by a mega-firm to handle your matter, an attorney you didn’t choose.   Clients that retain me to resolve their legal problems have my personal attention and benefit from at least 25 years of trial experience. I have what it takes to protect your interests in court and to achieve results that are in line with both your budget and your expectations.”   


Mr. Burguieres is highly rated by Martindale-Hubble for legal ethics and skill in practicing law. This is a widely respected achievement signifying superior quality legal work, professionalism and solid ethical standards and awarded based on reviews by other attorneys and judges.His clients include large, multi-national corporations to local banks and suppliers to individuals and families in need. He has filed cases and resolved claims against Busch Gardens, Florida Power, apartment complexes with unsafe conditions and similar defendants on behalf of victims of negligence or carelessness.


He has represented the Florida Bar in bankruptcy proceedings as well as law firms and attorneys who have placed their trust and confidence in him and his abilities during demanding times. In addition to the foregoing he has served on committees for local and state bar associations including the Florida Bar’s Small Claims Rules Committee tasked with formulating recommendations for revisions or additions to the statewide rules of court. Mr. Burguieres has presented seminars on Florida’s Construction Lien Law, on the effective use of accountants to resolve complex financial disputes in litigation and has served as general counsel for over 18 years for the Tierra Verde region, the largest unincorporated island community in the greater Tampa Bay metropolitan area.
