Joel is a Shareholder at Ewusiak & Roberts, P.A. Joel has handled a wide range of legal matters for both plaintiffs and defendants since he began practicing law in 2001.
Joel enjoys the variety associated with his general civil litigation practice; however, he focuses his law practice in securities and investment litigation, and commercial litigation.
In securities and investment litigation, Joel has represented many investors, agents, brokers and broker-dealers in both customer and industry disputes, in matters involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, misrepresentation and negligent supervision, among several other areas. Joel has previously served as litigation and corporate counsel for a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority broker-dealer, where his duties included representing the corporation and its subsidiaries in arbitration and litigation proceedings. He gained valuable insight into the securities industry while serving as litigation and corporate counsel.
In the area of commercial litigation, Joel has litigated a myriad of cases in state and federal court at both the trial and appellate level. Exemplary cases include Class Actions, as well as Civil Rights, Breach of Contract, Real Estate, Lender, and Personal Injury Claims, to name just a few.
In recent years, Joel's thoughts and opinions on various legal matters have been sought by various media outlets, including the Ocala Star Banner, the Tampa Tribune, the Saint Petersburg Times, and Courthouse News. More recently, examples of Joel's cases to be featured in the press include a lawsuit brought on behalf of a senior citizen duped out of her life savings by a Tampa investment company and a bankruptcy proceeding involving a Sarasota investment club's perpetration of an extensive ponzi scheme.
Outside of work, Joel enjoys exercising and rooting on the only team that matters: the West Virginia University Mountaineers. "Take Me Home, Country Roads." Joel can be reached via email at email@example.com. You can also follow Joel on Twitter by following @ewusiak.
