Our two principal attorneys established the law firm of VanNess & VanNess, P.A., in 1992 to serve clients by providing skilled representation geared toward obtaining the best possible results for our clients, whether jury verdicts, settlements or planning opportunities. We are members of the Florida and American Bar Associations, as well as the Citrus County Bar and Chamber of Commerce.

Over the years, we have provided legal services to a wide range of clients in our community. This means that, when you have a problem, you can rely on us for an immediate answer — or the resources to discover an answer. This is true whether you are terminating a trust (revocable or irrevocable), recovering from a catastrophic injury or taking legal action after the wrongful death of a loved one.

The Power Of Experience

Our law firm combines the skills of attorneys with more than 100 years of combined experience — each of whom brings personal and professional strengths to our clients' cases. Our two principal attorneys are Thomas M. VanNess Jr., who leads our trusts and estates practice, and Denise VanNess, a trial attorney and experienced litigator. Our team of lawyers is enhanced by Montyce VanNess, J. Stephen Pullum and Marybeth L. Pullum, attorneys focused on helping you achieve the best possible results.

This combination allows us to stay current with changes in estate, probate and trust administration laws and maintain the adversarial prowess needed to achieve success in personal injury, wrongful death, probate litigation and trust litigation cases.

The Power of Results: Our history of success includes numerous jury and bench trial verdicts as well as out of court settlements. We have been successful in representing numerous clients in multi-million dollar contested trust litigation. We've also had success in representing clients in a wide range of cases with varying amounts at stake. To learn more about our achievements, please review our settlements and verdicts.
