Dennis Morgenstern - Civil Mediator

After 16 years of practice in Pittsburgh, Denny moved to Tampa in September 1998. Before starting his own law firm in May 2000, Denny was an associate with the Law Offices of Peter J. Brudny. In January 2007, after merging his practice with that of Elizabeth “Betsey” Herd, Denny’s law firm (Dennis M. Morgenstern, P.A) underwent a name change to Morgenstern & Herd, P.A. At the end of 2018, after more than 35 years, Denny retired from active litigation practice.

While actively litigating, Denny concentrated his 35+ years of litigation practice in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death, including automobile and motorcycle accident, product liability, medical malpractice, premises liability and general negligence claims. Denny also represented railroad employees in claims under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA), as well as seamen and longshoremen in claims under the Jones Act and Section 905(b) of the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA), for injuries incurred in the course of their employment.

Denny is a member and supporter of the Hillsborough County Bar Association and has been awarded the highest (“AV”) rating by Martindale Hubbell.
