Prior to joining Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Butler successfully ran his own personal injury law firm for nearly eight years. It was during this time that Mr. Butler developed his reputation as a skilled and fierce litigator, taking on and winning difficult and complex cases against some of the deepest pocketed insurance companies in the country.

With the push of an encouraging professor, and with the pull of devotion to duty, Mr. Butler enrolled in Florida A&M University’s College of Law and emersed himself in the law.

"Being a member of the Florida Army National Guard and a member of Morgan & Morgan's Birth Injury Trial Group, while seemingly very different jobs, actually have tremendous parallels in that joining both organizations comes from a desire to serve those in need. Babies who have been harmed through negligence and Floridians who find themselves in the path of disaster share a vulnerability that calls upon my inner desire to help, protect and serve. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that I have indelibly touched the lives of my clients or Florida residents just by providing hope that the future can and will be better."

When not in uniform or a suit, Mr. Butler prides himself as a family man. He enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife, Ninette, or helping his kids, Noah and Natalia.
