Brian Connors was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, Brian attended West Florida High School where he excelled both in the athletic and academic arenas – lettering in football his sophomore, junior, and senior years and eventually graduating with a 4.68 GPA – enough to earn him a final class rank of 3rd in a class of over 250 students. Following graduation, Brian moved to Gainesville, Florida to attend The University of Florida where he majored in Economics. During Brian’s senior year at the University of Florida, after much research and deliberation, Brian Connors decided to pursue a career as an attorney. In the Fall of 2011, Brian began matriculating at the Florida State College of Law in Tallahassee, Florida. Brian excelled academically in the variety of courses while at FSU, where he eventually graduated in the top 10% of his class. However, one course was more impactful than any other – the Criminal Practice Clinic taught by Professor Krieger, which prepared students for the actual practice of law in the courtroom.
Following the Criminal Practice Clinic, Brian Connors was a Certified Legal Intern (CLI) at the Gadsden County Public Defender’s Office. Though still enrolled in school, Brian worked full-time and handled all aspects of criminal cases, including trial work. This externship allowed Brian to gain invaluable litigation and trial experience before earning his J.D. or taking the Florida Bar. Since graduating from law school, Brian has devoted 100% of his practice to personal injury and wrongful death. In Brian’s spare time, he enjoys working out, fishing, football, and spending time at the Florida panhandle’s beautiful beaches.
