Comprehensive & Experienced Representation

The Capaz Law Firm has extensive knowledge and experience in handling accident cases involving serious bodily injuries and fatalities that have been caused as a result of another person or business's intentional, negligent or reckless actions.



Prior to starting the firm, attorney Dereck Capaz spent over four years as a criminal prosecutor. While at the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office in Tampa, he was the lead trial attorney of a felony division and gained invaluable experience handling accidents and serious bodily injury cases at the criminal level. Following his time at the State Attorney's Office, Mr. Capaz worked for over four years at a well-respected civil defense firm in Tampa, focusing most of his practice on the defense of insurance companies and large corporations in tractor-trailer accidents, automobile accidents and serious bodily injury cases. Mr. Capaz was on the "first response team" and would often be called to accident scenes involving fatalities or catastrophic injuries.

As a trial lawyer, who has personally investigated and responded to many accident scenes and handled serious accident cases from the beginning through trial verdict, Mr. Capaz has the necessary knowledge and litigation skills to effectively advocate and pursue the justice that you deserve. In addition, as a former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Capaz understands the methods utilized by insurance companies to evaluate claims; thus, he understands the most effective means to pursue a claim and to obtain the most compensation amount for his clients.
