This past week, the Florida Justice Association released another episode of "Titans of Trial," and this week's episode exclusively featured the life and work of Larry Stewart—a dear friend, colleague, and founder of Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A..
Listen to the episode here.
The Titans of Trial podcast "features Florida's legendary trial attorneys revealing their keys to success—in law practice and in personal life—in their own words."
Indeed, the word "titan" comes to mind when someone considers Mr. Stewart's long and storied career.
Few people have been as consequential in the field of law as Larry Stewart. He was a personal injury attorney long before anyone knew how important or significant that field could be, pioneering the practice of advocating for the injured and wronged. While trying one of the nation's first car crashworthiness cases, he developed some of the most innovative jury presentation methods in the field.
As one of the founders of Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A., he helped develop our firm's small caseload approach, which has allowed us to devote enormous resources and focus to every case. He also founded Trial Lawyers Care, a national pro bono program initiated for 9/11 victims. For his lifelong commitment to the wronged, he's received some of the most prestigious awards in the legal field, including the Al J. Cone Lifetime Achievement Award and the Florida Justice Association's highest honor: the Perry Nichols Award.
In short, he's a lawyer's lawyer.
Even in 'retirement,' he's continuing to make significant contributions. He's currently working on a book documenting the first 50 years of the Florida Justice Association, an organization he once presided over and helped build.
Mr. Stewart's wisdom and experience are priceless resources for every attorney, and he shares quite a bit of it in this podcast. We recommend a listen here.
