Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers in DeLand
Between the hustle and bustle of Orlando and the coastal attractions of Daytona Beach, DeLand is a place where the small town way of life is still cherished. DeLand — also known as “The Athens of Florida” for its picturesque Greco-Roman architecture — is a college town that balances rich historical heritage with down-to-earth family fun.
We take art and recreation seriously here in DeLand. Where else can you spend the day skydiving at a world-class facility and the evening enjoying shows at “Florida’s Handsomest Theatre,” the famous Athens Theatre? Or follow up a long day canoeing in De Leon Springs Park with a great meal at one of downtown’s many outdoor markets?
You simply can’t find places like Hontoon Island State Park or the Stockton-Lindquist House anywhere else. That’s why we work so hard to preserve our city’s historical buildings, parks, and waterways for generations to come.
We’re also a community that cares about making our voice heard, whether it’s protecting the benefits our veterans rightfully deserve, keeping our bodies of water free from chemical contaminants, or ensuring our roads are safe and well-maintained.
And when it comes to protecting the best interests of our city’s hardworking families and individuals, there is no case too big or too small for our attorneys of Morgan & Morgan’s DeLand office.
How We Can Help
As a national plaintiffs’ law firm, we have the resources to handle even the most difficult of cases, but we never forget where we come from. Helping to get justice for the people of Central Florida through personal injury law and dozens of other practices is the heart of our mission.
From taking insurance companies to task to representing victims harmed by negligent drivers who speed on N. Woodland Boulevard, our attorneys try to make DeLand a better place — one case at a time.
We also work to ease the burdens of our clients. We can handle the tricky negotiations while you focus on what matters most in life: your family, your health, and your recovery.
And we won’t just settle just because it’s easy. Our attorneys have extensive trial experience. If the pre-trial settlement offered is unfair or inadequate, we’re not afraid to go to court to fight for what our clients deserve.
What Type of Cases Do Our Attorneys Handle?
Our DeLand attorneys represent the victims of accidents, abuse, and neglect. Whether this harm was perpetrated by a negligent driver, a negligent doctor, or a careless landlord, our attorneys have the tenacity and experience to fight on your behalf for justice.
Because accidents come in many shapes and sizes, we take cases in a variety of practice areas, including:
- Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents
- Workers’ Compensation;
- Medical Malpractice;
- Wrongful Death;
- Slip and Falls;
- Burn and Fire Injuries;
- Brain Injuries;
- Birth Injuries;
- Dog Bites;
- Product Liability.
Our DeLand attorneys also fight to protect the victims of employment disputes, such as workplace harassment, wage theft such as denials of overtime or failure to pay a minimum wage, and more.

Meet Your Attorney
Part of being “For The People” means having a personal connection with each and every one of the people we represent. Our clients know the attorney who is taking their case and can reach out to their case staff members with any questions or concerns they may have about their lawsuit.
Attorney Martin J. Jaffe is the head of our DeLand office. He specializes in helping victims of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, product defects, and carbon-monoxide poisoning events.
During his time at Morgan & Morgan, Jaffe has obtained significant verdicts on behalf of his clients, including $951,000 for a motor vehicle crash victim and $2.54 million for the victim of carbon monoxide poisoning. Jaffe was also selected by Florida Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite Civil Trial Law in 2016.
Jaffe and the rest of the DeLand team are honored to serve their clients and bring justice to our fine city.
How Much Does an Attorney in DeLand Cost?
We don’t get paid until you do. We understand that some people may be hesitant to pursue a lawsuit, worried about the costs of an attorney. However, no one should feel that justice is out of reach for them simply because of their income.
All people should be able to access high-quality legal representation. That’s why our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan work on a contingency-fee basis. This means that our clients pay no consultation fees or costly hourly rates. We only get paid a reasonable fee — a percentage of the recovery — if we win your case and recover compensation for you.

In Florida, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is limited to four years. That means time is of the essence when it comes to pursuing and filing a lawsuit after you’ve been injured. Other types of cases have their own deadlines, some of which could be only one or two years.
