Jeffrey Newsome



I started my career at a national defense firm handling complex litigation on behalf of some of the largest developers, engineering and architectural firms in the country, as well as several gig-economy companies.  I served as defense counsel for one of the primary defendants in the In re: Champlain Towers Collapse Litigation, the class action wrongful death case arising out of the tragic collapse of the Champlain Towers, in Surfside, Florida.  Through that experience, I discovered my true passion for advocating on behalf of individuals who have been wronged.  My practice is dedicated to class action litigation on behalf of individuals against large corporations.

I received my J.D. cum laude from the University of Florida Levin College of Law and my B.S. in history and political science from Florida State University.  At UF and FSU, I was a member of the mock trial team earning several national outstanding attorney, best advocate, and best closing argument awards.

I am from St. Petersburg, Florida where I live today enjoying the water, spearfishing, and boating.  I also coach competitive high school mock trial where I educate the next generation of lawyers.
