Terry Roberts

Director of Appellate Practice

Terry Roberts is an appellate and litigation support attorney who approaches the law as a system for achieving justice through the power of the written word. He’s the professor, the monk, the storyteller, and the wordsmith. After starting his career as a litigator working on behalf of injured workers whose rights had been denied by their employers and insurance companies, Terry moved over to appellate work first in private practice, then at the Office of the Attorney General, and for over a decade as a solo practitioner. He quickly earned a reputation as a lawyer’s lawyer. Several attorneys routinely brought him onto their cases at the appellate stage because they knew that Terry’s research and writing skills were second to none. Terry has handled over 400 appeals in every part of Florida, the Supreme Court of the United States, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals (the appellate courts that oversee Florida’s federal district courts).

Throughout his career, he has obtained reversals of convictions for people unfairly convicted of crimes as serious as first-degree murder, obtained reversals when children were wrongfully separated from parents through unfair agency action, and he has obtained reversals in civil cases where high dollar jury verdicts were wrongfully tossed aside by the trial judge and then restored through Terry’s efforts at the appellate stage. Terry has made it his mission to ensure that the Fischer Redavid team has every legal argument at its disposal when it marches into court. He knows that every case begins with a person and a principle but that knowing the law is the way to win a case. And the law lives in books. Terry knows how to find the codes, statutes, rules, court opinions, and precedents relevant to your case, and he knows how to get right to the heart of your story and how to boil the law down to its essentials. Working hand in hand with the litigation team, Terry can help present your case to the judges that sit behind the bench so that they will understand your story, know your case, and hear why you need relief.

  • Compassionate Approach

    We use creative, aggressive litigation strategies while also bringing a human approach to personal injury law. We embrace the opportunity to get clients back on their feet and give them a sense of justice after going through a life-changing event.

  • Innovative Strategies

    We out-research, out-think, and out-deliver our competition. We’re early adopters of many game-changing technologies that add immense value to our client’s cases, and we use them to make our work more intuitive, predictive, and accurate.

  • Unrelenting Advocacy

    We aren’t a settlement mill.  Our law firm is in trial multiple times a year, so while others say they’re aggressive, we truly are.  Hardly anyone takes the fight to defense lawyers and insurance companies as we do.

  • Devoted Counsel

    We don’t rush settlements and we’re willing to put in tons of work to take cases the distance. We appreciate that our clients are human beings who deserve regular updates, transparency, and the absolute best efforts we can offer.
