Since launching his own firm in 2011, Mr. Bushell and his firm have come to be regarded as a resource for clients and other lawyers who need help with precarious legal predicaments.

Mr. Bushell’s cases involve commercial/business litigation, real estate and lending transactions, probate and guardianship disputes, divorce and family law litigation, mortgage foreclosures, employment and employee benefits litigation, personal/bodily injuries, medical malpractice, class actions, and other areas of substantive law, both federal and state.

Prior to founding his own firm, Mr. Bushell practiced with premiere complex litigation firms in Pennsylvania and Florida, with practices that extended nation-wide. He forged his skills litigating highly complex cases against some of the world’s largest law firms, with millions and sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars at stake.

Mr. Bushell’s work has resulted in numerous precedent-setting decisions—from courts in Florida and throughout the country. His articles have been published in legal and business publications, such as the Daily Business Review, the Record, and other periodicals, and he has presented on appellate practice and other subjects at Continuing Legal Education programs.

Mr. Bushell is also the author and publisher of the Florida Appellate Review blog, where he chronicles the developing jurisprudence of Florida and federal appellate courts.
