John Willis, Personal Injury Lawyer in Boca Raton, FL


John A. Willis was raised in New York, and he earned his bachelor's degree from Stony Brook University (SBU). Upon graduating college, he went to work for a large insurance company in New York. In 1991, John relocated to Florida and attended Nova Southeastern University Law Center where he earned his Juris Doctorate degree.

While attending law school, John had the honor of being a member of the Nova Law Review. The Review specifically trains its members in analysis, writing, and engaging in intensive legal research to prepare them for the rigors of legal practice. As a student at Nova Law School, he was a member of the Nova Moot Court Society, and he was the 1993 winner of the prestigious Feinrider Moot Court Competition.

In his last semester at law school, John worked full time for the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office as a certified legal intern. While working in the State Attorney's Office, he successfully prosecuted six criminal jury trials.

Over 25 Years of Personal Injury Experience

Since earning his law degree in 1994, John has focused the majority of his practice on representing personal injury victims in civil tort actions. Over the last 25+ years, he has personally handled hundreds of personal injury and insurance matters, including numerous jury trials held in Palm Beach and Broward County.

Insurance Company Background

When representing plaintiffs, John draws from his experience working for a large insurance company, an experience which gives him critical insight into the processes used by insurance companies to evaluate, devalue, deny, and settle personal injury claims. With an insider's advantage, he knows how to successfully negotiate and when necessary, litigate on behalf of injured individuals and policyholders.

John is admitted to practice law in Florida and New York. He is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Southern, Middle, and Northern Districts of Florida. He is also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

The Florida courts have recognized John as an expert on reasonableness of attorney's fees and he has been retained by other Florida attorneys to testify as an expert in this area on numerous occasions.

Personal Life & Family

John resides in Parkland, Florida with his two teenage sons. In his spare time, he enjoys playing a good round of golf, playing tennis and working on computers. As an avid sports fan, his favorite teams are the Miami Hurricanes, the Miami Dolphins, the Florida Panthers, and the Florida Marlins. Involved in the community, he participates in charitable activities for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the National Psoriasis Foundation, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society. John is also actively involved in the “Kids First – Politics Second” organization founded by Parkland parents in response to the tragic shootings at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.

Our Client's Testimonials

  • John Willis is wonderful.

    “John Willis is wonderful. I couldn't never thank him enough for helping me with my case. Working with John Willis and his paralegal Helene was an amazing experience. I got in a car wreck and needed medical attention afterwards. As soon as the doctors office made their claim to the insurance company my phone started blowing up. I was not at fault for the wreck but I felt like I did something wrong by the way the insurance company's kept calling me with 20 questions and repeatedly asking me the same questions over and over again. Deciding to ask for John Willis for help was the best decision I could have made. I know my case was not an easy one but that did not stop them for fighting to get me the best outcome they could. I would so recommend Willis Law, PA without any hesitation. I loved knowing I had someone like him looking out for me and if the day were to ever come again that I found myself in need of some help, he would be the first person I would call.

    “Mr. Willis managed my case with effectiveness, efficiency, and with kindness. After the initial contact, Mr. Willis and his secretary, Helene, made it so that I never had to make another phone call or supply any further information. They relieved my stress and worry immediately, and that continued throughout to the conclusion of my case. Both Mr. Willis and Helene were accessible, caring, and responded to my questions quickly. I never had any doubt that they knew me and my case thoroughly. They were professional and kind, and I left any encounter with them feeling uplifted. In summary, I highly recommend Willis Law, P.A. for legal counsel. It is a relief to find a lawyer who is trustworthy, skilled, hardworking, and caring.”
