ABOUT YOUR CHRISTIAN LAWYER, DEAN BURNETTI:
For nearly 34 years, Dean Burnetti has dedicated his career to heping people who have been injured due to someone else's negligence. Though his years of experience and legal expertise, he helps his clients seek the best possible settlements for their injuries.
Dean was born and raised in Elgin, Illinois. From an early age, he was called to the pulpit, and as soon as he graduated from high school, he headed to Oklahoma and and attended seminary training. He earned a degree in Pastoral Ministries, then headed to Florida to find a church that needed a pastor. But before he could step up to the lectern, God called on him to move in a different direction.
After earnest prayer, Dean understood that God was directing him to assist people who were injured. Dean vividly recalled a time in his youth when his own father had been injured in a construction site accident and how the injury impacted the entire family. Dean registered at Warner University in Lake Wales and earned his Bachelor’s Degree. He then returned to Oklahoma and attended Oral Roberts University where he earned his law degree. Upon graduation, he came back to Florida and was licensed by The Florida Bar.
In his early years as a lawyer, Dean centered his practice on clients who had been hurt on the job. He became so intrigued with Florida’s Workers’ Compensation laws, that he decided to take The Florida Bar’s challenging examnation which would allow him to become Florida Bar Board Certified in Workers’ Compensation Law, and he passed the test on his first attempt.
After the new millenium, God called upon Dean to expand his practice to include clients who were injured in all types of accidents. After learning all he could about Florida's Civil Injury Laws, Dean passed The Florida Bar’s difficult test allowing him to become Florida Bar Board Certified in Civil Trial Law.
DOUBLE FLORIDA BAR BOARD CERTIFICATION:
Because Dean Burnetti is Florida Bar Board Certified in Civil Trial Law and Workers’ Compensation Law, the Florida Bar recognizes him as an expert attorney in both of these areas. The Florida Bar has made it a law that Board-Certified attorneys are the only lawyers allowed to call themselves "experts" or “specialists” in the practice area of their certification. In other words, a lawyer with no Florida Bar Board Certification may not claim to be "an expert trial lawyer" or "your legal specialist" or they will be violating one of the very laws they are sworn to uphold, which is to comply with The Florida Bar's rules and guidelines. For this reason, Dean Burnetti takes pride in claiming that he literally is an expert in both Workers' Compensation and Civil Trial Law.
Board Certified attorneys must participate in hours of continuing legal education each year and be re-examined every five years to maintain their Board-Certified status.
Only about 7% of Florida attorneys are actually Board Certified, and only a small fraction of those have the distinct honor of being Double Board Certified.
Dean Burnetti is ONE OF ONLY FOUR attorneys in all of Florida who is Florida Bar Board Certified in both Civil Trial Law and Workers’ Compensation Law!
