Florida Personal Injury Attorney Ron Sholes is a 10-year military veteran who was born and raised in Illinois and has made Florida his home for over 20 years. Ron received his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University while serving on active duty in the U. S. Navy, and his law degree from the University of Florida. Ron is admitted to practice in all Florida State Courts.

During his 10 years of service on active duty, Ron served in the Gulf War in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm, the Bosnian Conflict, and in several Counter-Narcotics Operations in the Southern Caribbean Sea and Eastern Pacific Ocean. Among other things, he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the Southwest Asia Service Medal, the Kuwaiti Liberation Medal, and two Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medals. Ron is also an active member of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, associations of service members who served during times of war.

Now, Ron is dedicated to vigorously fighting for the rights of the firm's clients. Ron prides himself on providing the best possible legal representation. This includes the personal service that you expect and deserve from a law firm. Ron understands this and that is why each of his clients has his personal cell phone number. Ron understands that your case is likely the most important thing going on in your life, and regardless of the scope of your particular case, you need your questions answered.

When it comes to Personal Injury cases, Ron and the firm's attorneys understand that aggressive representation is a must! After an accident you should focus your energies on recovery, not dealing with insurance companies whose boards of directors are more interested in showing a huge profit for their investors. The big insurance companies have hired lobbyists to influence legislators to enact tort reforms and reduce awards to personal injury claimants. As an injured client you have rights for compensation for your losses and suffering. That's why you need a strong legal team like ours fighting for you.

Our attorneys don't simply "practice" personal injury law. We are a firm of military veterans that understands what it means to serve. We don't simply wait around to see what happens with your case, we manage your claim and we maintain contact with you throughout the process so you are fully informed. When you hire our firm, you have an attorney handling your claim, not simply a paralegal. And, most of all, we fight for the compensation that you deserve.

In addition to Personal Injury Law, Ron also represents clients in other areas of law such as Criminal Defense, DUI and Drug Defense, Medical Malpractice, and Family Law.   Visit for information about those practice areas.
