Continuing the Legacy
Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A. is committed to continuing the legacy of excellence established by Anthony Battaglia in 1958. Mr. Battaglia was well-known for his bold style, but his preparation for his cases was unparalleled. This preparation gave him an advantage in the courtroom. These lessons were passed down to the other lawyers in the Firm. For over 60 years, the Firm has been a full service law firm, which has allowed it to help people and businesses in virtually every situation. The Firm practices in the areas of personal injury, insurance disputes, business and corporate, real estate, probate and estate planning, wills and trusts, criminal defense, appeals, commercial and business litigation, and general civil litigation.
Giving Back to the Community
The Firm is unique in the area for being one of the last of the mid-size boutique law Firms. Part of its longevity has been its role in giving back to the community. Every lawyer and member of the staff is expected to participate in extracurricular organizations. Sean McQuaid is currently the President of the St. Petersburg Bar Association for 2020-21. He follows Anthony Battaglia and Aubrey Dicus as the third president from the Firm. Joining Mr. McQuaid on the Executive Committee of the Bar are Rachel Drude-Tomori and Andrew Pardun. Caitlin Szematowicz has been elected the Executive Director of the Barney Masterson American Inn of Court for 2020-21. Jonathan Douglas serves on the Sixth Circuit Attorney Grievance Committee. Thus, the lawyers all have dedicated themselves to doing more than just practicing law.
