When Johnny Bardine first hung his shingle in a small office in St. Petersburg over a decade ago, he had at his core one mission – to help Tampa Bay individuals and families through the most challenging times of their lives, doing so with compassion, fierce advocacy, and efficiency.
That charge comes from a deep and abiding sense of community, the belief that we all have a stake here and a duty to leave this place better than we found it.

Since that first day, Mr. Bardine has woken up every morning committed to that mission. In contested divorces, Mr. Bardine vigorously advances his clients’ position while understanding the value of amicable resolution and conciliation. Having stood on the frontlines of the mortgage foreclosure crisis, Mr. Bardine has fought to defend Tampa Bay homeowners and keep the banks at bay. When unfortunate accidents occur, Mr. Bardine fights the insurance companies to ensure his clients receive just compensation for their injuries. And in probate matters, Mr. Bardine works quickly to help grieving families move on after the death of a loved one.

For all matters, big and small, Johnny Bardine has your back.
