Preserving the Rights of Injury Victims in Southwest Florida
Jason L. Gunter, P.A. has helped injury victims in Fort Myers and Naples for almost two decades. His law firm exclusively handles personal injury and employment law claims. This focus allows him to concentrate on recovering the maximum compensation possible in every client’s case.
We recognize that accidents can happen any time of the day, not just during regular business hours. Early investigation of the accident scene may improve the chances of successful recovery. Our dedicated team is available 24/7 to help with this process. Our bilingual staff is available to assist if you need translation services.
