Meet Our Attorneys
Hello, my name is Mike Kestenbaum. Thank you for taking the time to read my biography. First and foremost, I want to thank Mr. Newlin for allowing me to help the good people of Central Florida (and beyond) with their accident and injury claims. After spending the first 14 years of my legal career representing some of the world’s largest insurance companies, product manufacturers, and retailers, it is refreshing to now advocate on behalf of those injured by the negligence and carelessness of others, and I look forward to helping you.
My desire to go to law school and become a lawyer began at a young age and was reinforced during high school while watching my mother go to law school herself and start her practice as an attorney. It looked like long hours and challenging work, but the reward of being able to fight for someone or something in a courtroom appeared well worth the effort. So, after graduating from Princeton University in 2001, I decided to attend law school back in Florida at the University of Florida and call the state home. And, since then, that reward of advocating for someone or something in a courtroom has not disappointed.
I started my legal career in 2004 in the Tampa Bay area representing insurers and other large corporations through the end of 2018. I defended thousands of injury claims and suits, none too big and none too small, and gained a unique insight into how those insurers and entities think and why they do what they do in responding to and handling claims and suits. I now draw on that knowledge and experience every day to help the firm’s clients obtain the compensation they deserve.
My goal and passion are to promptly, effectively, and efficiently resolve your injury claim, and I work days, nights, and weekends to make that happen. My clients are of the utmost importance to me, and I want to do the best possible job that I can for them. I want to win for you! If you want to speak with me about your injury case or have a legal matter with which you think I can help, please feel free to contact me directly at 407-845-1820 or [email protected].
I look forward to helping you.
