Paul R. Fowkes brings a diverse legal background to his practice representing consumers and people who have suffered injuries in the Tampa area and throughout Florida.
A native of Morgantown, W. Va., Fowkes earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science at West Virginia University in 1999 and his law degree from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis in 2003.
After practicing several years with a large and prestigious defense firm in Tampa, he joined forces with colleagues Larry Disparti and Ryan Hasanbasic to form the Disparti Law Group, a firm focused on representing consumers against debt collectors.
In addition, Fowkes practices personal injury law.
Fowkes and his partners created the firm in response to a need felt by many consumers who fall behind on debt payments and experience harassment from debt collectors.
Fowkes has found that being aggressive in debt-collection cases for plaintiffs is a successful approach, and he has recorded numerous settlements to clients’ satisfaction.
His work as a zealous advocate for clients helped earn him a Rising Star award by Florida Super Lawyers, a distinction held by the top lawyers in the state under age 40.
An experienced litigator, he is licensed to practice in the Florida State Courts, U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
