All of us at LMW Attorneys were terribly saddened at losing our founding partner, Pete Proly, on May 10, 2013. Everyone who ever had contact with Pete knew he was a fighter, an athlete and a truly outstanding human being. He carried these attributes through his battle with Leukemia, never giving up hope that he would be a survivor. He left a legacy in both his personal and professional life of integrity and fair dealing. He truly cared about his clients and friends in a deep and abiding way.
Laporte, Mulligan & Werner-Watkins will continue to operate in the manner it always has; putting our clients’ interests first while maintaining the integrity and professionalism Pete found so important. We want to assure our clients that we will continue to provide outstanding representation in criminal defense and personal injury/wrongful death cases. Other than the loss of our great friend and mentor, clients will see no difference in the quality of representation or the friendly, caring attitude we have always provided. All of us also remain committed to our community and giving back.
The news is not all sad. Pete was ecstatic to learn before his passing that we have added a new attorney to our ranks. Frances Werner-Watkins is a former prosecutor in Pinellas and Pasco Counties, and has been handling juvenile cases and School Board cases for the past few years. She will now be a member of our team handling both criminal defense and personal injury cases. She fits the mold of a LMW attorney perfectly with her great personality, caring attitude for her clients, excellent knowledge of the law and courtroom presence. We are extremely grateful she decided to join us in providing outstanding representation for our clients.
To our current clients; rest assured that we will continue to represent you as in the past. To potential clients, we invite you to look over our web site and call us with any questions. We encourage you to call or stop by to meet and get to know each of us.
