Wil Florin was born in Salzburg, Austria and raised in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He received his B.A. from Ball State University and his Juris Doctor from Stetson University (1980) where he was a State Moot Court finalist. He has lectured to trial groups across the country. He is Board Certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer by both The Florida Bar (1988) and The National Board of Trial Advocacy (1990). Wil is a former adjunct professor in Trial Practice at Stetson Law School. Wil has been named in every edition of A.R.C.?s "Leading American Attorneys", "Florida Super Lawyers" and "America's Leading Plaintiff's Lawyers", as selected by his peers. In 2008 Wil was selected by The American Trial Lawyers Association as one of the top 100 Trial Lawyers in Florida.
In 1986, at age thirty, and shortly after founding Florin Roebig, he became what may be the youngest lawyer in America to obtain a multi-million dollar jury verdict ($2.3 million). Wil has obtained nearly 50 verdicts and settlements in excess of one million dollars on behalf of his clients. To our knowledge no Pinellas attorney has obtained more million dollar jury verdicts or more million dollar medical malpractice jury verdicts than Wil.
Wil's hobbies include soccer and karate. He was named M.V.P. of the 1976 Indiana College All-Star Soccer game and holds a Black Belt in Isshinryu Karate.
