Auto Justice and Personal Injury Attorney
“Family First” is a motto that Auto Justice Attorney Michael T. Gibson not only lives by, but is deeply rooted in his firm’s corporate culture. Michael was inspired to open his Orlando personal injury law firm after experiencing his own family’s struggle following a terrible car accident. His mother was involved in a head-on collision, leaving her with chronic pain and nerve damage. He witnessed her endure medical procedures, painful injections and ongoing physical therapy. The accident took its toll on the entire family, emotionally and financially.
When all hope was lost, a dedicated and talented personal injury attorney fought for her and the family when it seemed no one else would. Her attorney listened attentively to the family’s needs and advocated passionately in what became a hotly contested case. Ultimately, two settlements were obtained and justice was achieved.
This inspired Michael and showed him that an effective attorney can make a powerful difference by restoring hope when there was none. At that moment, Michael made a vow to fight for individuals and their families who had fallen on hard times through no fault of their own- people who were ignored by the insurance companies that promised to protect them.
“Family is the guiding principle that has grounded and guided my law practice. It is the foundation behind our law firm and is the very reason I do what I do, and why I represent consumers and accident victims against big insurance companies in their family’s time of need,” states Michael.
Michael was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida. He moved to the Central Florida area to attend the University of Central Florida. Upon graduation from UCF, he attended law school at The Florida A&M University College of Law, where he graduated in the top three percent of his class. During law school, he served on the Law Review and as the Head Teaching Assistant to the Academic Skills Program. He also served as a County Court Mediator and a Certified Legal Intern for the Orange County Public Defender’s Office, where he tried felony jury trials. Upon graduation, Michael practiced with one of the largest personal injury firms in the Central Florida area for several years before starting his current firm.
Today, Michael devotes his entire career and law practice to representing injured people in auto accident and injury cases against large insurance companies, and negligent drivers. Over the course of his career, Michael has obtained over $16,000,000.00 in cases involving auto accidents, nursing home abuse, slip and falls, negligent security, insurance disputes, and consumer litigation. He is the author of several consumer guide books, including “Your Complete Guide to Florida Auto Accident Claims” and the “The New PIP,” all of which are offered for free on his website, www.autojusticeattorney.com. Additionally, he is a frequent lecturer on Florida auto accident claims and Florida auto insurance. Most recently he was recognized as a Rising Star in the practice area of Personal Injury: Plaintiff in Super Lawyers Magazine 2013.
In addition to his professional achievements, Michael is passionately involved in the community. He devotes his time and financial support to a variety of causes. He created “The Michael T. Gibson Scholar Athlete of the Month” program, which recognizes and provides college scholarships to Central Florida’s top high school seniors who excel in academics, athletics and community involvement. He is also an avid supporter of his own High School, Clearwater Central Catholic, where he is a member of the coaching staff. He also coaches and sponsors his son’s youth soccer team.
The firm recently became a corporate sponsor of the Orlando Solar Bears and has partnered with the Bears to host a promo night honoring Orlando’s first responders, including police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel, for their service with free tickets to attend a hockey game with their families at the Amway Center.
Michael is married to Jennifer Martinez-Gibson, who helped him start the law firm and is an integral part of the practice. Together, their work is dedicated to putting families first and the principal transcends their home lives as well. They reside in Orlando with their two beautiful children: Brady (4) and Emery (10 months).
