Evan D. Lubell, a partner and shareholder, at Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan PLLC is a highly experienced attorney recognized throughout Southwest Florida for his relentless pursuit of justice for his clients. His efforts have made our community a safer place to live, work and drive. For more than fifteen years he has spent tireless hours litigating against insurance companies and corporations who have needlessly, and too often recklessly, caused injury and death to our families, friends and neighbors.

Evan’s approach to handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases is simple and straight forward. He believes that insurance companies and corporations should be held to the same standard of personal responsibility that the rest of us are held to under the rule of law. In other words, when innocent people are injured due to the needless failure of others to follow the rules that govern our society, those negligent parties should fairly compensate their innocent victims for the harms and losses they have caused.

Unfortunately, too often, those responsible for causing physical, emotional and financial harm, refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. Evan has developed a reputation as a skilled and polished litigator, who fights for full justice for all of his clients. He does so regardless of the size and power of his adversaries, who will often spare no expense to deny, delay and refuse to pay for the damages they cause to the public.

Recently, Evan, along with his Partner, Ty G. Roland took on one of the largest corporations in the world. When Wal-Mart refused to offer a fair settlement to a client who was catastrophically injured in one of its stores, Evan and Ty, refused the insultingly low offers, and let a Lee County jury resolve the dispute. The result, was the largest slip and fall verdict ever rendered in the county. Wal-mart insisted throughout the case that they had a multitude of rules in place to prevent these types of incidents in its stores. Evan and Ty conceded and commended the retail giant for having these rules in place, but proved to the jury that it was Wal-Mart’s needless failure to follow its own rules that directly lead to the permanent and disabling injuries that their client will have to endure for the rest of her life. While nobody will ever be able to give this client her health back, as a result of the jury award, at least she won't have to worry about how she will pay her medical bills and help put food on her family’s table.

Evan is a past President. of the Cape Coral Bar Association and a member of numerous legal organizations, including; the Florida Justice Association; the Southwest Florida Justice Association; and the Lee County Bar Association. Evan is extremely active in the local community, a former Rotary Club member, who has frequently lectured and held numerous complimentary seminars for local doctors and lawyers, keeping them up to date on important issues affecting their practices.
