Delivering the Highest Quality Legal Work and Service to Our Clients
Since 1963, Masterson, Hoag & Smith has been helping clients across the state of Florida after a serious personal injury, medical malpractice, legal malpractice or wrongful death. We have over 85 years of combined experience in prosecuting personal injury cases and taking those cases to trial. We uphold the highest standards of professional integrity and ethics. Our focus is simple but important – we use a “team approach” with every member of our team being personally committed to prosecuting your case and maximizing your recovery. Unlike other firms where each lawyer has a separate caseload or case managers are used, all three partners in our firm work together on your case to ensure that you receive the best representation. You will talk with a lawyer on the phone when you call our office and meet with all three lawyers during the initial consultation. Your case will be independently reviewed by all three lawyers, who then discuss and carefully consider the facts and circumstances of each case. Our firm’s decision to take on a case is one that is not taken lightly. We have high standards for case selection and pride ourselves on the clients we represent.
Our firm is dedicated to representing clients who have suffered a catastrophic injury or death through no fault of their own. With cases that are accepted, our lawyers are actively involved in your case from beginning to end. One of the firm’s partners is available 24/7 to address your questions or concerns. We take on your problems as if they are our own and make personal service to the client a top priority. Our philosophy is that the better we get to know you and understand your problems, the better we will be in preparing your case and achieving the best possible result. We truly value the relationships that we develop with our clients and are proud to call many of them friends. To provide you with the best representation, we intentionally limit our caseload and focus on quality over quantity. This approach allows us to devote more time, energy and resources to your case. This has proven to be a very effective way to handle cases. Our longstanding, established and reputable presence in St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay lets you know that you have found a law firm with a proven track record that you can trust. Let the attorneys at Masterson, Hoag & Smith help you with any of the following:
Personal injury, medical malpractice and legal malpractice cases are usually very complex, and it can be difficult at times to know whether you were harmed by negligence or not.

Our fee is taken out of the settlement proceeds in a predetermined amount, so you never have to worry about how you can afford the highest quality legal services available.
