Attorney Profile

Attorney Howard P. Ross joined fellow attorney Anthony S. Battaglia's law firm in 1964. In 1967, Mr. Ross became a partner at the St. Petersburg firm, and he has spent the past 50 years building Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, PA, into the firm it is today. Throughout Mr. Ross' legal career, he has focused on business and corporate law, with an emphasis on business litigation and real estate law. Today, he continues to enjoy a reputation as one of Florida's leading attorneys.

Mr. Ross earned a law degree from Stetson University College of Law in 1964, and The Florida Bar granted him admission that same year. In addition, The Florida Bar - Board of Legal Specialization and Education recognizes him as board certified in both business litigation and civil trial law; Mr. Ross has held both certifications since the program began.

In the more than 50 years that have passed since his career began, Mr. Ross has earned the respect of both his clients and his peers for his extensive legal knowledge and virtually unmatched experience. His experience alone has led to numerous honors, including recognition as a 50-year member of both the American Bar Association and The Florida Bar.

However, his experience is not the only quality to have earned him recognition. His outstanding abilities as a trial lawyer and his long record of success have resulted in a number of awards, including an AV Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell and a "Superb" rating from Avvo. In addition, The Best Lawyers in America lists him among the top attorneys in the country, and he has received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Stetson University College of Law.
