Danny Amat, a native Floridian of Cuban descent, was born and raised in Miami, Florida. After graduating from high school in Miami, he went to the University of Florida and earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with high honors. He then returned to the University of Florida for his law degree, graduating from law school with honors. While in law school, he was chosen to be a member and editor of the University of Florida Law Review based on his superior academic performance.
Shortly after graduating from law school, Danny began working as a lawyer representing major insurance companies defending negligence claims brought by people injured in accidents. Despite his success as a defense lawyer, he realized that his calling was not to represent insurance companies, but to represent people injured by the fault or negligence of others.
For the last 30 years, Danny devoted his time, energy and talent fighting for justice for his injured clients who, through no fault of their own, found themselves in the painful, stressful world of personal injury claims and our state’s often frustrating civil justice system. Danny has handled injury claims from the date of an accident through settlements without lawsuits and through the trial of the case. In the process, he learned that powerful insurance companies do not concern themselves with, or focus on, the pain, needs, difficulties or frustrations of the people who have been injured. Instead, those powerful insurance companies focus on how best they can deny, delay or defeat claims or pay as little as possible to try to resolve claims. Danny is passionate about his work and about protecting and representing the rights of our clients. His practice with our firm includes handling claims against insurance companies both in personal injury and property damage matters.
Danny and his wife Sarah have been married almost 20 years. They live in Central Florida and have four wonderful children, two daughters and two sons. They have worked hard to help instill qualities including integrity, empathy, fairness and responsibility in all of their children as well as teaching them the importance of the Golden Rule and a strong work ethic. Danny brings these same qualities to work with him when representing our clients.
