The Florida Bar Honors Michael Corso as Board Certified Lawyer of the Year
"…Mr. Corso has been dubbed "the lawyer's lawyer," as one main area of his litigation practice is representing fellow Florida lawyers in legal malpractice claims and grievance matters….Mr. Corso is a staunch proponent of board certification within his firm. He has encouraged coworkers to become board certified and has shared his experience with the certification process and the benefits which board certification has had in his career."
Corso is double board certified attorney in Civil Trial Law for 39 years and Business Litigation for 24 years. He is also board certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Civil Trial Law. Corso concentrates his practice in the defense of non-medical professionals (including lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers and surveyors), copyright/trademark infringement, product liability and tobacco litigation. In addition, Corso speaks throughout the United States on legal management, ethics and drone law.
Corso has received numerous awards throughout his legal career. Most recently, he was named 2022 "Engineer of the Year" by the Florida Engineering Society, Calusa Chapter. Corso has also received the Florida Defense Lawyers Association President's Award, been recognized as a "Top Lawyer" by Naples Illustrated magazine (2018-2020), and named to the "Top 100" list of Florida Super Lawyers (2019-2022).
Corso obtained his bachelor's degree in aeronautical and astronautical engineering from Purdue University.
