With almost two decades of experience as an attorney, David P. Ferrainolo has carved a name for himself in medical malpractice defense (among other areas of practice) in Florida. He excels at handling high-exposure and high-stake litigations with a calm, client-centric approach and finding comprehensive solutions to complex legal problems.

David P. Ferrainolo attained his legal education in Pennsylvania. He received his bachelor’s degree from one of the top colleges in the state (University of Pittsburg) and his law degree from Duquesne University. He started his legal career in Las Vegas, where he joined a National Healthcare Defense Firm, and in less than a decade, he moved to Florida to establish a Florida presence for that firm. He became a partner in the firm and one of the top medical malpractice defense lawyers in Tampa, Florida. While Dave has a multitude of successful medical malpractice defense cases to his name, his legal expertise spans far beyond that.

As the managing partner of Ferrainolo Law Group, Dave brings his 19 years of experience serving professionals and businesses in a wide range of litigations. That includes general liability and premises liability claims, negligent security and hiring claims, and sexual misconduct by employees.

What makes Dave different is that he understands and wants to understand what his clients go through. His work entails more than just winning cases. He helps his clients get through some of the most challenging litigation cases that can cause irreparable damage, and in the midst of this high-stress environment, Dave helps his clients make smart decisions.

The confidence and calm he instills in his clients help them through the grueling court procedures while ensuring minimal to no damage to their reputation, which may hinder their ability to run a profitable business (or practice).

Dave’s legal expertise spans beyond his ability to conduct a successful trial. He has extensive experience with pre-trial negotiation, handling mediations, and conducting settlement conferences. His ability to handle complex lawsuits makes him the last line of defense for professionals and businesses that are on the verge of financial and reputation disaster due to a lawsuit.
