Firm Details

A Brief History About Us
In 1952, Idus Q. Wicker and James A. Smith formed a partnership with the goal of providing legal services of exceptional quality to their clients. They remained partners until their retirement and life-long friends. The firm they founded has expanded to ten offices located throughout Florida in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Melbourne, Miami, Naples, Orlando, Pensacola, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm Beach. Although the firm has changed in size and scope, the goal of providing exceptional legal representation has remained the same.

Focus on Litigation
Clients turn to Wicker Smith when they have critical and complex litigation matters because of the firm’s vast experience in complex litigation filed in State and Federal Courts. Numerous major corporations have selected Wicker Smith as national and regional counsel. Supporting the litigation team is a preeminent Appellate Department, which has appeared as appellate counsel in approximately 1,500 reported decisions, including several landmark opinions issued by the Supreme Court of Florida.

Depth of Experience
Wicker Smith attorneys are recognized as leaders in the defense of a wide range of litigation practice areas, including products liability, medical malpractice, catastrophic aviation accidents, legal malpractice, accounting malpractice, nursing home claims, construction litigation, and commercial litigation, as well as a variety of general negligence matters. In all such matters, communication and attention to the client’s specific needs are our highest priority.

Built on Trust
The backbone of our relationship with clients is built upon integrity and stability. We strive to establish long-term relationships with our clients built upon a partnership of communication and trust. We achieve this objective by listening to our clients, understanding their businesses and developing legal solutions to best meet their individual needs. With ten offices, over 170 attorneys, and an experienced support staff of legal assistants, paralegals, investigators, nurses, and a physician, Wicker Smith can provide legal services for its clients throughout the entire State of Florida and beyond.
