About Paul B. Brockway

Paul became a felony prosecutor, working cases ranging from drug offenses to homicide matters. Eventually, he was promoted to the Sexual Crime and Crimes Against Children Unit, where Paul worked and tried many serious cases, including many Capital Sexual Battery and Homicide cases. He was promoted to the position of “Chief Trial Attorney” for the Unit and was the acting assistant division chief.

Before leaving State service, Paul was recognized as the outstanding prosecutor for working with victims in 1995. In 1996, he was recognized as the Office’s “Outstand Trial Attorney” for that year.

In 1997, Paul joined the personal injury firm of Steven A. Bagen & Associates. He worked and tried many cases there.

In 2006, Paul left and formed “Hutson & Brockway” for 7 years. During that time, he was primarily engaged in personal injury and wrongful death matters. In 2008, Paul applied for and was selected by the Florida Bar as a “Board Certified Civil Trial Specialist.” This distinction is only granted after an applicant passes a rigorous background investigation, is supplied with recommendations from peers, opponents, and judges, has proven that they have been the lead attorney in many jury trials, and passed a difficult written examination. Furthermore, to maintain this certification, an attorney must recertify every 5 years proving they are still in good standing and has continued to try cases. Paul has successfully recertified in 2013 and 2018, and anticipate that he will in 2023.

 

In 2014, Paul returned to Mr. Bagen’s firm and worked as his “Head of Litigation” and continued to try cases, winning six and seven-figure results.

In 2021, he joined Glassman and Zissimopulos, attracted to the high degree of professionalism and client focus for which they are known.

Over the years, Paul has served as a board member and president of the James C. Adkins Inn of Court. This group promotes professionalism and competence among the attorneys of this community. He has also served as a member and chairperson of the 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Grievance Committee, a group selected by the Florida Bar to investigate allegations of misconduct by attorneys.
