Florida Attorneys Serving The Injured Since 1956


A Law Firm Built On Hard Work And Success For Our Clients

The law firm of Tanney, Griffith & Bresler, P.A., was originally founded in 1956 by William (Bill) Tanney. Bill Tanney was one of the first attorneys in the Tampa Bay area to limit his practice specifically to handling wrongful death cases and representing individuals injured as the result of the negligence of others. At that time, The Florida Bar Rules of Ethics did not allow attorneys to advertise. Mr. Tanney built his personal injury practice by successfully representing and obtaining money damages through jury trials as well as settlements on behalf of injured plaintiffs.

Other lawyers in the area as well as judges and doctors along with former clients were the sole source of referrals to Mr. Tanney, and that is how his personal injury practice grew. The law firm has continuously been in business since 1956 and continues to exclusively represent individuals injured as a result of the negligence of others. Mr. Tanney’s son, Drew Tanney, joined the firm in 1983 and Tony Griffith joined the firm in 1994. The law firm of Tanney, Griffith & Bresler, P.A., does not advertise and its primary source of business remains referrals from other attorneys and former clients.
