Attorney Courtney Caprio has joined the law firm of Kelley | Uustal in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Before joining Kelley | Uustal, Caprio earned significant victories at a national law firm based in Miami. In June, she won a stunning $63.5 million federal jury award, including $47.6 million in punitive damages, on behalf of two businessmen who claimed Miami Commissioner Joe Carollo used his office to harass them after they supported the commissioner's political opponent. The First Amendment retaliation case attracted substantial media attention and led to calls for Carollo's resignation.
In another recent high-profile case, Caprio convinced a federal jury to return an $8.5 million award in a case involving a trademark dispute over a French nightclub and entertainment brand.
"Courtney is a fierce competitor," founding partner John Uustal said. "We are fortunate to have her on our team."
Florida Super Lawyers has recognized Caprio for her outstanding achievements. The Daily Business Review named Caprio one of South Florida's "Most Effective Lawyers", following a trial victory on behalf of Verizon Wireless.
"I'm very excited to begin working alongside some of the best attorneys in the nation," Caprio said.
Caprio, who grew up on a small Virginia farm, earned her undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Virginia.
