Simon Wiseman was born in a small town on the outskirts of London, England. Simon arrived in the United States of America 24 years ago on a college soccer scholarship. After successfully captaining his college soccer team and graduating with honors in English literature, Simon went on to law school at Stetson University College of Law.
After graduating from Stetson in May 2000, Simon followed his passion for trial work by joining the State Attorney's office in Orlando, Florida as a prosecutor. During his time as a state prosecutor, Simon was lead trial counsel in approximately 40 jury trials, including a murder trial and a high profile prosecution of a police officer In Osceola County, Florida. After leaving the State Attorney's office, Simon joined a prominent Orlando law firm, where he spent 3 1/2 years gaining further trial experience as a personal injury and commercial litigator. Mr. Wiseman gained an insider's perspective working for insurance companies defending the rights of their insureds in personal injury law suits of all types. Today, he has switched sides and now uses that experience to protect the rights of people injured in car, motorcycle, pedestrian and truck accidents, slip and fall, dog bite, defective packaging and product, and nursing home neglect and abuse cases.
In December 2005, Simon joined the firm of Paul & Coppock, P.A., later renamed David A. Paul & Assoc., where he was part of a dynamic team providing first class representation to clients in matters involving personal injury and wrongful death arising out of automobile/truck/motorcycle accidents, nursing home negligence, products liability, animal attack cases, and other negligence cases.
