Kelly Kubiak, Esq.

If you’re seeking a passionate advocate who works tirelessly on behalf of policyholders, then look no further than Kelly Kubiak. Ms. Kubiak has practiced exclusively in the area of insurance law, first as a defense attorney on behalf of the insurance companies and now as a representative who acts solely as an activist for insurance policyholders. Ms. Kubiak’s case history is one that reflects a mix of residential single family, multi-unit dwelling condominium clients, universities, commercial enterprises, synagogues and churches, and confirmed release cases for multiple gas stations. She regularly represents policyholders in first party property insurance and insurance bad faith cases and has been instrumental in settling a number of large claims.

As a trial lawyer, she has spent a great deal of time litigating cases in the courtroom and regularly presents to the American Association for Justice and the Florida Justice Association. She has also been admitted to the US District Court and the Northern District of Florida where she is currently serving as the treasurer for Bad Faith Litigation. She is also an active member of the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA), the Windstorm Insurance Network, and the Community Associations Institute (CAI).
