Frank Sardinha, III

Of Counsel

Named a Florida Trend magazine “Up and Comer,” Super Lawyers “Rising Star,” and Best Lawyers “One to Watch” for the past several years, Frank Sardinha represents prominent and successful businesses and individual clients in complex, high-stakes civil litigation. A pragmatic advocate and litigator and ardent team player, Frank is resolutely committed to exceeding the expectations of clients and colleagues alike.

Involved in all stages of civil litigation, Frank serves as a catalyst for keeping resolution moving forward and matter constituents well-informed. His litigation and case management experience includes conducting investigations, discovery, depositions and settlement negotiations, appearing in court and arguing motions, preparing for trial and appeal, and conducting trials and arbitrations. Frank is frequently able to identify potential problems and solutions others may overlook. Notably, he is particularly skilled in taking and defending depositions, where his preparation, resourcefulness and professionalism serve clients well.

Frank is appreciated for his willingness to go above and beyond in pursuit of the right result for firm clients. He is aggressive when needed and tempered when a situation calls for a careful or diplomatic approach to realizing the right end. Meticulously prepared and driven to achieve each client’s distinct goals, Frank thrives in the face of challenge and the pressure inherent in adversarial proceedings. In addition to his resolute work ethic, Frank, as a South Florida native, is committed to serving his community, serving as a volunteer and board member of Florida American Legion Boys State, the Moot Court Board at his alma mater, and the South Florida Fair.
