Laura Gapske, Esq.

Following admission to the Florida Bar in 2002, I served as an Assistant Public Defender with the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Clearwater, Florida.  Following a move to Jacksonville in 2007, I joined the Office of Regional Conflict Counsel as a felony trial attorney for the Fourth Judicial Circuit.  In 2011, I opened my own office in Jacksonville. 

I am an experienced trial attorney who has devoted my legal career to defending the rights of individuals accused of serious crimes including, but not limited to, first degree murder, attempted murder, drug trafficking, armed robbery, armed burglary, armed carjacking, drug charges, violations of probation.  

Recently I expanded my practice to include family law.  I devote the same energy, time, and devotion in defending the rights of all of the people that I represent.

I am licensed to practice law in all Florida State Courts and the Federal Court System (Middle District).  I am also certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a Civil Circuit Mediator.
