Trial Lawyer

Morgan and Morgan

Keith Mitnik is senior trial counsel for Morgan & Morgan, the largest personal injury law firm in America. At Morgan & Morgan, there are departments that handle every type of contingency fee plaintiff’s case: general PI, medical malpractice, product liability, mass torts, commercial contingency, and so on. Keith’s job is to try cases with all of these departments and, when they do not settle, to join forces at trial with the other lawyers handling them.

As a result, Keith is in trial with all kinds of cases almost every month—sometimes two or three times a month. He has a unique perspective on tactics that are currently in vogue with defense lawyers, and he has a chance to develop countermeasures. Most importantly, he has abundant opportunities to try out new strategies aimed at maximizing the likelihood of getting just results for clients. If he is not in trial, he spends much of his time working on new ideas and refining existing ones. For many years, his work has also involved teaching these methods to other plaintiffs' lawyers around the country.

Keith has averaged at least two million-dollar verdicts per year over the last ten years, and, in the last five years alone, seven eight-figure verdicts. That does not even include the long list of significant verdicts that were less than a million dollars but were far greater than the unfair amounts offered in settlement by insurance companies. Those cases that do not have catastrophic injuries are often the most difficult from which to obtain full justice, and Mitnik has successfully guided these juries to just outcomes time and time again.

Keith has been featured on countless magazines’ best lawyer and super lawyer lists. He has been the subject of a front-page feature article in the Orlando Sentinel, a commentator on many national broadcasts, and the interviewee of Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes. He represented former Harlem Globetrotter legends Curly Neal, Meadowlark, and Marquis Haynes, among others, in a trial over the use of their names. He also represented The Backstreet Boys against the infamous music mogul Lou Pearlman.
