Brent Jones has practiced as a litigator in Florida for 39 years.  He practices in the areas of medical and nursing home negligence, premises liability, motor vehicle negligence, construction defects, and insurance coverage issues.

He is a native Floridian born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. He began his legal career as an Assistant State Attorney in the Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orlando, where he developed his advocacy skills which translated well into his civil litigation career.
