Neal grew up in a military family, having the opportunity to live all over the world during his youth. His family settled in the Mississippi Gulf Coast after his father’s retirement where he graduated from high school. He obtained his Bachelor in Business Administration from the University of South Alabama and his Juris Doctorate from Florida Coastal School of Law.
Neal has worked in the insurance/legal community for over 20 years, has successfully tried cases throughout the State of Florida as both Plaintiff and Defense Counsel, and is admitted in the United States District Courts for the Northern, Middle, and Southern Districts of Florida. Having started his career in defense work, he has worked as Claims Counsel and Trial Counsel for two Fortune 100 insurance companies, as well as having represented several large multinational corporations in his career as retained defense trial counsel. Neal then decided to move to the Plaintiff’s bar and has had the privilege of representing clients that have unfortunately been injured due to the negligence of others.
Since joining our Litigation Department, Neal helps our litigation clients with all aspects of the case, from the beginning of the litigation case through the trial of the case, and has helped numerous injured victims win sizable awards during all phases of the litigation process, including trial.
When he is not working, Neal enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife Kelly, their three wonderfully precocious children, and their four fur babies. Although he resides in the heart of Gator Country, Neal is an avid Alabama Crimson Tide fan.
