"Dedicated to making you whole; Devoted to setting you free."
Carolyn Margolies’ 17 years of trial advocacy has been earned in civil and criminal courtrooms throughout New York State and, most recently, Florida Courts. She began her legal career representing the student body of the State University of New York and won a Federal Court Injunction to bar the local board of elections from rejecting student voter registrations. The result was a change in legislation that now permits students to choose their dormitory as a domiciliary for voting purposes, and thereby grants student access to local politics.
As a Senior Assistant District Attorney, Ms. Margolies worked with the criminal defense bar to facilitate treatment for those charged with driving under the influence and assisted in the State’s Drug Court initiative, insuring that those with addictions are given the opportunity for treatment in lieu of jail time.
Immediately following the September 11 attacks, Carolyn became an active member of T.L.C. (Trial Lawyers Care); an organization formed to provide pro bono legal representation to the families of World Trade Center Victims.
As lead trial attorney for the Wall Street firm of Cheven, Keely & Hatzis, Carolyn had a record number of successful verdicts on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Her aggressive representation of litigants, and her outstanding record of favorable verdicts, have been reported in numerous publications, including the New York Law Journal.
Now, here, in the Tampa Bay Area, Carolyn has successfully represented clients throughout the trial process and has proven to be a skillful trial attorney in Florida’s Civil and Criminal Courts with impressive results. Carolyn continues her generous commitment to the pro bono representation of clients in both civil and criminal matters.
