Steve Brady has been a Florida attorney for more than 32 years. He graduated from the University of Florida College of Law in 1987 and Florida State University in 1984. Steve’s previous experience includes being a major shareholder of a Philadelphia-based law firm with offices in multiple states, handling cases in state and federal courts around the country. In charge of the entire state of Florida, at one point Steve supervised approximately 14 attorneys plus support staff, assistants, and paralegals.
Over the years, Steve has represented a wide variety of clients in various state, federal, and appellate trial courts. Class actions, deadly launch pad explosions, train explosions, aircraft explosions and crashes, propane truck explosions, boat crashes, building collapses, crane disasters, electrocutions, RICO suits, deadly products, alleged litigation fraud, brain injuries, medical malpractice, design and architectural malpractice, negligence, insurance coverage, insurance bad faith, commercial, construction defects, first amendment, death, dismemberment, and catastrophic claims.
After departing the US Department of State in the mid-1990’s, Steve filed the first ever class actions against insurance companies in Florida which changed the entire industry in favor of health care providers and their patients. Afterwards, many insurers hired Steve to (successfully) protect them from other class action lawsuits of various types. Over the years, Steve has successfully handled dozens of class action and other major lawsuits representing plaintiffs and defendants in matters where the amount in controversy ranged from millions to billions of dollars.
Much of Steve’s more recent practice has involved cases that were pulled by concerned clients (usually major insurers) from other attorneys and law firms. Accordingly, Steve has had a unique window into how lawyers and law firms handle cases, and how they can tactically, systematically, and/or strategically go wrong.
Steve has also been Corporate counsel for one of the largest international insurers in the world and was also a Consul of the United States, as well as an international diplomat in the US Foreign Service during the Reagan administration (tail end), George H.W. Bush, and Clinton administrations. During his years in the Foreign Service, Steve lived and worked overseas at various locations, received top secret, SCI, and code word clearances, lifetime tenure, and outstanding achievement awards (they remain permanently classified). Steve has also been a charter yacht (sailing) captain (USCG licensed captain/Master, 200 tons/200 passengers) and is multilingual.
