Derek James Byrne graduated from the Stetson University College of Law in 2010, where he enjoyed a thorough training in trial advocacy. Those skills were further developed and refined over the years he spent litigating in the Tampa Bay area. While Mr. Byrne primarily practices Marital and Family law, he also has experience in handling personal injury, commercial litigation, and landlord/tenant cases. 


Derek's Story

Having been born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, I had the fortunate opportunity to grow up on the water. It was the time spent fishing and sailing with family that led me to realize what is important in life and what is replaceable. I try to apply that lesson to my practice as I help people through their tough times. Going through a Divorce or Paternity case is never an easy thing to do, but I have witnessed many parents and spouses get through this process with a positive outcome. That is my goal for all clients.
