Philip J. Schipani is an attorney practicing in several areas including Family Law, Traffic, D.U.I., Wills and Guardianships, and Personal Injury. Schipani was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2002 and is a 1998 graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University where he received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science. He graduated Cum Laude from the University of Miami School of Law with a Juris Doctor degree in 2001.

Philip grew up in Northern Virginia outside of Washington D.C. Philip began practicing Family Law during his second year of Law School, when he obtained his certificate as a certified legal intern, which allowed him to practice in the State Courts of Florida. During that time, he interned with the Miami-Dade County Legal Aid Society. At Legal Aid in Miami, Philip litigated divorce cases and represented numerous individuals obtaining domestic violence injunctions.

Upon graduation of Law School, Philip's first job was working for two Miami-Dade County Family Court Judges as a case manager. During his time working with the Court system he gained valuable experience and knowledge of the family court system from the inside out. Part of his duties were to manage the Judges' caseloads and help pro se litigants obtain divorces and other relief in the Family Court system.

He is a member of the Manatee County Bar Association, Sarasota County Bar Association and Business Networking International. He is also currently volunteering as a Justice Teacher at Myakka City Elementary School and speaks to other local students about the constitution and Bill of rights. During Law School, he was a Judicial Intern for Federal Magistrate John J. O'Sullivan in Miami, FL.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
