Attorney Biography


I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, and moved to Florida during high school. I attended the University of Florida and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Economics with Honors in 1999. I then entered law school at the University of Florida, and graduated in 2002.

During law school, I clerked for the law firm Peter A. Robertson & Associates, P.A. in Gainesville and also interned with General Master Stuart Suskin, observing workers' compensation mediations. Following graduation, I joined the firm of McConnaughhay, Duffy, Coonrod, Pope & Weaver, P.A., one of the largest Workers’ Compensation defense firms in Florida, as an associate. At the McConnaughhay firm, I represented many large employers, insurance carriers and servicing agents. During my time at the McConnaughhay firm, I obtained valuable insight into how employers and insurance companies view and handle workers' compensation claims. I also learned a great deal from some very knowledgeable and experienced attorneys.

In 2005, I decided to start my own law office and opened Bryce A. Schmidt, P.A. Since that time, I have represented many individuals in various cases involving workers' compensation, personal injuries, car accidents, general civil litigation, and chapter 7 bankruptcy. I am very proud of the fact that I am a solo practitioner, and that I am the only one who works on the cases of clients who come to my office. I believe that personal service is very important in this profession, and that each client deserves direct access to their attorney. It is my goal to give each and every client honest, ethical, thorough, and effective representation.
