Nicholas S. Gurney

Gurney Law, PLLC represents ordinary people in their fight against powerful corporations and massive insurance companies.  That's why Founder, Nicholas S. Gurney, Esq., has worked hard to secure favorable jury verdicts in both civil and criminal trials, including jury verdicts of more than $1 million in both Collier and Palm Beach Counties.


Nicholas' passion for justice extends outside the office where he serves as an Adjunct Professor of Legal Studies at the University of Central Florida.

Nicholas received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Florida with Cum Laude distinction and Dean's List Honors.  While at UF, Nicholas earned the highest grade in six different courses and was inducted into both The National Order of Barristers and The Florida Blue Key Honor Society.  Upon graduation, Nicholas was honored with the Helen G. Blechman Endowed Pro Bono Award in recognition for his donation of more free legal services than any other graduate.  Nicholas holds degree certificates from the University of Florida in Community Service, Pro Bono Advocacy, and Criminal Justice.

In 2016, Nicholas became one of the youngest trial lawyers ever to graduate from Gerry Spence’s famed Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming.  He has since been recognized by Thompson Reuters' Super Lawyers as a Rising Star (2020, 2021), National Trial Lawyers' Top 40 Under 40 (2018, 2019, and 2020), and UCF's Alumni Association Top 30 Under 30 (2017).  Nicholas actively supports and coaches the UCF Trial Team, of which he is a distinguished alumnus and past National Tournament competitor.  Outside the office, Nicholas enjoys amateur woodworking and machining, trips to the dog park with his dog, Nate, and spending time with his niece and nephew, both of whom are wise beyond their years.

It is important to remember: past success is not an indicator of future results. Every case is different and you should contact an attorney to evaluate individual claims and obtain the most accurate advice possible.
