Johnnie B. Byrd, Jr.

Plant City Lawyer

My Approach

I must learn all that I can about your case and your situation. So, listening to you is the first and foremost activity I will take.

After I know the facts, I research the law and give you my best legal opinion about your options. Then, it is up to you to decide the direction that I will take on your behalf.

One the course is set, I will move forward promptly moving your case toward conclusion, keeping you informed as we go. I cannot guarantee outcomes, but I guarantee that I will zealously pursue your case within the bounds of the law.
