Christopher Borzell was born in Miami and moved with his family to the Tampa Bay area where he has lived for most of his life. Chris’s love of law began in high school when he attended a class on U.S. Supreme Court historic rulings. In 2002, Chris received his undergraduate degree from the University of South Florida. From there, he followed his passion for law to the University of Florida – Fredric G. Levin College of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor degree in 2009.
Chris began his career as an attorney in civil litigation focusing on both first- and third-party insurance disputes. He devoted his first several years of practice to defending insurance companies and their interests, including a position as trial counsel for one of the country’s largest insurance companies. Chris now utilizes his extensive experience gained through his representation of insurance companies to fight for the rights of the injured. He knows how to deal with insurance adjusters and defense lawyers to fully protect his clients’ interests.
As a personal injury attorney with nearly a decade of experience, Chris believes a working knowledge of records and testimony is vital in every trial, and he approaches every case with the utmost preparation. He believes in his role as advisor to his clients, informing them of the available options and potential ramifications to empower them to make difficult decisions. He also believes in doing whatever he can to help his clients recover and stresses the importance of immediate medical treatment after any accident. Healing is the first priority, with the added benefit of building evidence of your injuries and required treatment.
Chris shares the belief of the Dismuke Law family that community is important, so he has volunteered his time at the Guardian Ad Litem Program, Three Rivers Legal Services, and Bay Area Legal Services Association. When Chris is not fighting for the rights of his clients, you can find him supporting the local Tampa sporting teams and Liverpool F.C.
