Sally Rogers Culley: Attorney with Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell Professional Association


Sally Culley primarily practices in the areas of employment, commercial litigation and product liability. Her clients include large banks, mortgage servicers, insurance companies, public entities (e.g., school boards, cities, port and housing authorities), and smaller, local businesses.

With regard to employment law, Sally represents employers, both in the public and private sector, in defending employment-related claims, including claims of discrimination, wage and hour violations, whistle-blower violations, wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation. She also provides consulting and training services designed to help prevent such claims and minimize risk. Finally, Sally assists with the creation and enforcement of employee handbooks, severance agreements, and non-compete agreements.

With regard to commercial litigation, Sally handles matters involving contract disputes, fraud, and statutory claims such as Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act/Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, and RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act). Sally also represents clients in commercial mortgage foreclosures and workouts, construction lien compliance and litigation, quiet title actions, bankruptcy, and collection matters.

Sally has represented manufacturers in connection with automotive and household appliance product liability claims. In connection with such claims, she implements strategies to quickly gather important information so that early evaluations can be made. She has worked with regional and national teams defending claims following product recalls, including tire and airbag recalls.

Sally also has significant experience reviewing and interpreting insurance policies, and she assists insurers with matters involving coverage and bad faith claims, evaluating such matters, and participating in litigation where necessary.
