Our Trajectory

Our Firm’s History

The founding of the Law Offices of Carey Leisure Carney came out of a tragic accident. In 1983, recently-married Tom Carey lost his wife, Joni, in a drunk driving accident. This event spurred him to become an activist against drunk driving with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and to cofound Remove Intoxicated Drivers (RID) in Tampa Bay. Additionally, he pursued legal advocacy for individuals whose lives have been changed by drunk driving and other forms of negligence. He founded a personal injury firm in 1984 that would eventually become Carey Leisure Carney.

Board Certification

The fact that our attorneys are Board Certified makes their services stand out from the rest. Board certification requires extensive experience, peer reviews, and testing. Our team has proven its knowledge and skill by obtaining Board Certification state-wide, as well as nationally. We have what it takes to represent you in trial and fight for the compensation you deserve after an accident.

Record-Setting Jury Verdicts

Over the years, our firm began to set records in the area of jury verdicts. We achieved the first ever multimillion-dollar verdict in Pinellas County and broke the jury verdict record for the same county on multiple occasions. We strive always to be leaders in the area of drunk driving verdicts and other areas of negligence and injury. We also take the lead in the area of legislative efforts and charitable endeavors.
