Alan Marshall founded Marshall Thomas Burnett after years of practicing in the areas of sinkhole and personal injury litigation. Mr. Marshall began his career as a trial lawyer more than 20 years ago, handling auto accident and other types of personal injury cases. He is best known however, as a pioneer in the development of sinkhole law in Florida.
In 1991, a group of homeowners founded the Dunedin Sinkhole Task Force due to numerous sinkholes developing in the Patricia Estates area of Dunedin. This group of over 100 homeowners hired Mr. Marshall to represent them. Over the course of the next several years, Mr. Marshall continued his representation of these homeowners and began to create the landscape for modern Florida sinkhole law.
As word of his dedication and experience spread, his client base grew and he expanded his practice. Mr. Marshall began training other attorneys in this new area of law and went on to found the firm of Marshall, LeValley and Napolitano, P.L., which grew to be the largest law firm in Florida dealing exclusively with sinkhole claims.
In continuing his innovative career, Mr. Marshall founded the firm of Marshall Thomas Burnett. After years of practicing law, Mr. Marshall found that a smaller, more personalized firm ensures client satisfaction by providing each client the individualized attention they deserve.
