About Sarasota Accident Attorney Maria Gerber

Offering Personal, Yet Aggressive Representation

Attorney Maria GerberWhen you suffer a personal injury, your life can dramatically change. Medical problems are merely the tip of the iceberg – financial distress, depression, marital problems, familial/relational issues and anxiety can overwhelm personal injury victims and their families. You might seek a personal injury attorney’s advice; however, some attorneys may not seem able or willing to understand your experience or care about you personally – and that is the difference between other attorneys and Sarasota injury attorney Maria Gerber of Gerber Law

As a Florida native, Maria understands the importance of knowing and serving the local and surrounding communities. Maria has the experience and professional background to provide you with the aggressive legal counsel you need, but she also treats her clients with consideration and respect. Maria and her staff know that both legal knowledge and understanding are paramount to quality representation, and every one of Maria’s clients receives personal care and attention as part of her personal injury practice.


Before going into private practice, Maria was a State Prosecutor with the Pinellas County State Attorney’s Office from 1995-1998. As an Assistant State Attorney, she prosecuted thousands of criminal cases, tried over 100 jury trials and served as lead trial attorney, supervising a team of prosecutors. Upon entering private practice in 1998, Maria joined a 30-lawyer civil trial firm. Throughout her years in private practice, Maria has gained experience in serving personal injury clients, and she has built a large civil practice with a focus on accident and injury claims. Maria only represents injured children and adults, and she never represents insurance companies. Maria has also been an instructor at the St. Petersburg Junior College and Polk Community College, where she has lectured on police practice, accident investigation, use of force, constitutional law and criminal law.


Maria earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from the University of South Florida, Tampa. In 1994, she earned a Juris Doctorate degree, cum laude, from Stetson University College of Law, St. Petersburg.
