Director of Business Development
FRANK J. SIOLI
Mr. Sioli is a founding member and serves as Chief Strategic Officer with Sioli Alexander Pino. Mr. Sioli has been practicing in the Admiralty/Maritime, Insurance, and Commercial Transactions-Litigation fields for over 20 years. Mr. Sioli has also earned the distinction of being Board Certified in Admiralty & Maritime Law. Throughout his career, he has successfully mentored scores of attorneys, and is thrilled to be practicing with the best.
Mr. Sioli honed his legal skills at a young age, debating coverage and other insurance related issues at the dinner table with his insurance broker father. As fate would have it, Mr. Sioli later found himself smack in the middle of such issues as his experience and practice areas expanded. While in law school, Mr. Sioli participated in jury trials as an intern for the Miami-Dade County Public Defender's Office, and taught "Street Law" to high school students, helping students learn about the legal system and ultimately participate in a county-wide trial competition. Because litigation is basically about educating the Judge or Jury on various subjects, Mr. Sioli believes in keeping his teaching skills sharp, having presented topics at various national and local seminars as well as on an in-house basis. Mr. Sioli is also one of the few lawyers in Florida who has tried cases to verdict in the Criminal, State Workers' Compensation, Longshore Workers' Compensation, and Civil Litigation venues. This versatility allows him to employ successful litigation strategies from one litigation forum to another.
Mr. Sioli received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1991, and his Juris Doctor from Nova Southeastern University in 1994. He is admitted to practice in the State of Florida, United States Supreme Court, United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the United States District Courts for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, the District of Columbia, and the State of Texas.
