Adam Bantner is the President of Adam L. Bantner, P.A. He founded Adam L. Bantner, P.A. on the principal that every client deserves zealous representation with attention to detail and their individualized needs. His and the firm’s mission is to get the absolute best possible result for every client, in every case, every time.
Adam has tried over 20 jury trials, including charges of capital sexual battery, attempted second-degree murder, fleeing to elude, grand theft, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, driving under the influence, and other felonies and misdemeanors.
While trial ability is an important skill for a successful criminal defense attorney, Adam also has successfully argued numerous motions protecting the constitutional rights of the accused. What a layperson may see as a “technicality” helping a person guilty of a crime “get off,” Adam sees as a violation of society’s right to be free from unreasonable intrusions by government officials into our lives. It is only by bringing these violations to the court’s attention in any particular case that everyone else’s freedom is protected.
Also, Adam believes that one cannot be successfully defended without an independent investigation. Law enforcement and complainants often have their own agendas when making reports of crimes. It is only by speaking personally with witnesses, either by deposition, investigator, or a phone call, that the full picture starts to take shape. Without independent investigation, details, defenses, and opportunities are lost.
Adam is a graduate of Florida State University College of Law (2006) and Florida Southern College (2001). Adam is a member of the Florida Bar, Federal Bar (Middle District of Florida), and the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
Prior to opening his own practice, Adam was with the Tampa firm of Cohen & DePaul, P.A. While there he learned the ins and outs of Tampa criminal defense after leaving the Public Defender’s office in Orlando. Adam is proud to say that he has never prosecuted those accused of crimes; his passion is for the defense of the accused.
