How We Came To Be
After building Morgan Colling & Gilbert into one of Florida’s largest plaintiff’s personal injury firms, attorneys Stewart Colling and Ronald Gilbert left that firm in 2005. Joined by fellow partner Melvin Wright, alongside a number of other attorneys, paralegals, and staff, Colling Gilbert Wright came to be.
Though Colling Gilbert Wright has grown to become a preeminent personal injury and wrongful death law firm, both in the state and the nation—our passion is our clients. We are devoted to the folks we serve and strive to ensure that every client is treated with respect and given the attention they inherently deserve.
We have purposely built a small, client-focused team so that we may remain attentive, communicative, and present with each client every step of the way. With compassion, courage, and unwavering commitment, we see each case through to the very end, seeking the rightful recompense you are due.
What We’ve Done
In addition to representing our neighbors throughout Florida in a wide range of personal injury cases, Colling Gilbert Wright has played a key role in multi-district litigation involving plaintiffs from all over the country. This includes the class action against the New England Compounding Center (NECC) for steroid injections tainted with fungal meningitis.
In what Newsweek called a “medical mass murder case,” more than 60 lives were tragically lost, and over 700 more were forever changed due to the greed of the NECC. Though it will never erase the devastation suffered by the victims and their families, the case settled for $200 million in 2015.
We strive to ensure that each of our clients receives unrivaled representation. All of our partners are rated AV-Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®. This rating signifies that an attorney has been recognized for the “highest level of professional excellence for their legal expertise, communication skills, and ethical standards by their peers.”
Many of our personal injury lawyers are continually recognized by leading ratings services and publications for lawyers, including:
- Super Lawyers
- Best Lawyers in America
- Million Dollar Advocates Forum
- American Board of Trial Advocates
- The National Trial Lawyers Top 100
In addition, Colling Gilbert Wright has been included among the Best Law Firms in America by U.S. News & World Report.
