Former State Attorney Kevin Sparkman has nearly a decade of experience practicing in the field of personal injury law, specializing in auto accident representation. As a prosecutor with extensive litigation experience, he knows what it takes to represent a difficult case in court. It is for this reason, and many others, that he was named to the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars™ list in 2013, 2014, and 2015. This is an impressive accomplishment in the legal field, as only 2.5% of all practicing attorneys in the state are named to this list each year. Most recently, Attorney Sparkman was selected for inclusion in the 2016 Super Lawyers® list. He has also been successful in obtaining high-dollar settlements for a number of clients.
Attorney Sparkman’s primary objective is to make a difference for his clients and obtain the most successful outcome possible. He always searches for ways to resolve cases through negotiation, but he also never shies away from taking a case to trial when necessary. His interest in the law began after graduating from the University of Florida with his B.A. in History. Soon thereafter, he attended the University of Florida, Levin College of Law—from which he graduated with J.D. in 2003.
Since then, he has become a member of numerous professional organizations, including:
- Hillsborough County Bar Association
- Manatee County Bar Association
- American Association of Justice
- St. Petersburg Bar Association
- Clearwater Bar Association
- Florida Bar Trial Lawyers Section
- Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association
- Florida Justice Association
Attorney Sparkman is also the co-author of the Appellate Brief in Coyle v. Coyle, So.2d, an opinion published in the Florida Law Weekly. On a personal note, he enjoys leading an active lifestyle. He has completed many half-marathons and runs in every new city he visits. He also enjoys discovering new farm-to-table restaurants, as a way to support local businesses.
