Attorney Profile

Attorney Evan D. Lubell is a senior partner with Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC, law firm in Fort Myers, Florida. Serving the rights and interests of clients throughout Lee County and the surrounding areas of southwestern Florida, Mr. Lubell provides exceptional advocacy and support to those who have suffered injuries or loss as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

Over the course of his legal career spanning more than 25 years, Mr. Lubell has achieved significant success representing injury victims and their families. Handling all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims, and having taken on some of the largest corporations and insurance companies in America, Mr. Lubell has secured millions of dollars in total compensation for his clients, including many multimillion-dollar verdicts, as well as numerous settlements well in excess of a million dollars.

In 2017, according to TopVerdict.com, Lubell and his co-counsel, Ty Roland, won the No. 1 Premises Liability Verdict in Florida. The Estate of Dominguez v. Florida Power & Light Co. case was fought and won after the Dominquez family lost their 15-year-old son who was electrocuted while climbing bamboo near power lines in 2011.

Among his other notable successes, he refused to accept a ridiculously low settlement offer from Walmart regarding a client's slip-and-fall accident. He took the matter to court and, along with his legal partner, was able to secure one of the largest verdicts ever awarded in Lee County, Florida for this type of claim. He has also obtained a verdict of $2.1 in a premises liability case for a child who suffered a traumatic brain injury and a $2 million verdict for a client wrongfully terminated because of his disabilities.

A 1990 graduate of the State University of New York at Albany, Mr. Lubell obtained his Juris Doctor from Rutgers Law School in 1993. He holds his license to practice law in Florida, has been admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida and is eligible to practice law in the states of New York and New Jersey.

A leader in his legal community, Mr. Lubell is the current president of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and the past president of the Cape Coral Bar Association and the Southwest Florida Trial Lawyers Association. He is also active with other local, state and national legal organizations, including the Lee County Bar Association and the Florida Justice Association, and he routinely conducts lectures and continuing legal education seminars across his region on a variety of topics.

Verdicts/Settlements

  • $23,000,000.00 Electrocution Judgement. Dominguez v. Fla. Power & Light Co. This case arises from a tragic accident. On December 19, 2011, fifteen-year-old Justin Dominguez was climbing a tall stalk of bamboo in his neighbor's backyard. The stalk bent into a power line, resulting in Justin's electrocution and eventual death. The boy's mother, Tricia Dominguez, filed a wrongful death action against FPL, the party responsible for the power line. She alleged that FPL was negligent because it failed to follow its own maintenance and safety standards when it failed to remove the bamboo, a fast growing and uncontrollable plant, from the area near the line. She further alleged that FPL had been warned about the bamboo at the accident site but still failed to remove it. As a result of this negligence, she argued that FPL created a dangerous safety hazard that ultimately claimed her son's life., 2016
  • $950,000.00 Giordano v. Sch. Bd. of Lee Cnty. $650,000.00 over Cap. This case involves the tragic death of a Riverdale High School football player following summer football practice. Together with claims for negligence and wrongful death, plaintiff Laurie Alice Giordano individually, and on behalf of the estate of her son, Zachary Tyler Martin-Polsenberg, brings two claims under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against defendants James Delgado and the School Board of Lee County ("defendants") for alleged violations of Zachary's substantive due process rights under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. In short, the plaintiff alleges that Coach Delgado and the School Board's actions constituted deliberate indifference to the health and safety of Zachary., 2020

  • In 2011, Evan D. Lubell became senior partner, joining Frank Aloia and Ty Roland to lead the firm. Lubell's practice focuses on managing serious personal injury and wrongful death matters from beginning to end. Like many Floridians, Evan was born and raised in the Boroughs of New York City and made his way south to Fort Myers in the Spring of 1994. During the next 10 years, Lubell gained a reputation as a formidable trial attorney in cases of personal injury and wrongful death and rose to become a partner in a well-known Cape Coral law firm. During this time, Lubell increasingly took on injury and death cases that other attorneys deemed, “too complicated” or the corporation at fault “too powerful.” Facing a growing number of trials against industry giants, Lubell teamed up with Ty Roland who, like Lubell, was gaining a reputation for excellence in the courtroom. This collaboration resulted in a string of stunning trial victories for Lubell’s clients with awards in the millions of dollars—and that partnership in justice continues to today. In 2017, according to TopVerdict.com, Lubell and his co-counsel, Ty Roland, won the No. 1 Premises Liability Verdict in Florida. The Estate of Dominguez v. Florida Power & Light Co. case was fought and won after the Dominguez family lost their 15-year-old son who was electrocuted while climbing bamboo near power lines in 2011. Among his other notable successes, he refused to accept a ridiculously low settlement offer from Walmart regarding a client's slip-and-fall accident. He took the matter to court and, along with his legal partner, was able to secure one of the largest verdicts ever awarded in Lee County for this type of claim. He has also obtained a verdict of $2.1 in a premises liability case for a child who suffered a traumatic brain injury and a $2 million verdict for a client wrongfully terminated because of his disabilities. Lubell is a true student of the law and of the corporations and insurance companies against which he battles on behalf of his clients. Routinely during a court hearing or trial, Lubell has shown judges and juries just how little such businesses know about their own policies for employee conduct and their customer’s safety. Lubell is masterful at sorting out half-truths from the whole truth and in ensuring justice wins out over corporate power and influence., Evan Lubell Spot, 2021

Other Outstanding Achievements

  • Case drove new Florida law for protection of student athletes. Shortly after,  Florida named #1 nationally in school sports safety report1 Sep 2021 In the News.Info Hub.Law Defined Blog.News ReleasesAs students go back to school, Florida secondary school athletes are safer than ever before, according to a new study released by the Korey Stringer Institute (KSI) at the University of Connecticut. Florida has been named #1 nationally for its comprehensive health and safety policies for secondary school athletics in the 2021 State High School Sports Safety Policy Evaluation report.   According to KSI, the purpose of the study is to “provide a graded assessment of the implementation of health and safety policies related to the leading causes of sudden death and catastrophic injury in sport at the state level for secondary school athletics within the United States.” The review was based on information from high school associations and state legislation for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It focused on the four primary causes of sudden death in high school sports, which account for a majority of sport-related deaths: exertional heat stroke, sudden cardiac arrest, traumatic head injuries, and exertional sickling.  According to the study, Florida has the most comprehensive health and safety policies for secondary school athletics in the nation, with a score of 87.67%. New Jersey is second at 85%, and Massachusetts is third at 79.4%. California is at the bottom of the list with a ranking of 30.8%. Florida’s score increased 11.47% from its previous ranking of 76.20%, which is the largest increase for any state this year.  In part, Florida’s high score is a result of recent legislative changes, specifically in the area of exertional heatstroke. Last year, the Zachary Martin law went into effect, strengthening protocols to prevent heat-related illness in high school athletes. KSI gave Florida a perfect score (20 out of 20%) in the areas of heat acclimatization policies, the proper use of Wet Bulb Globe Thermometers (WBGT), and the presence of cold water immersion tubs at all schools for the onsite cooling of athletes suffering from a heat-related illness.  The law is named after 16-year-old Ft. Myers athlete Zach Martin, who succumbed to exertional heatstroke during a summer football practice in 2017. Zach’s mother, Laurie Martin Giordano, worked tirelessly after his death to lobby for new heat-related policies for secondary school athletics so that no other family had to face a similar preventable tragedy. She founded the Zach Martin Memorial Foundation to educate athletes, coaches, and parents about Exertional Heat Illnesses (www.zachmartinfoundation.com). In the KSI report, Florida also received a 20/20% for its sudden cardiac arrest policies, 18/20% for its policies concerning traumatic head injuries, 15/20% for appropriate healthcare coverage, and 14.67/20% for emergency preparedness. The Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine will publish the study with these findings in the October issue. It has been released electronically ahead of print: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/03635465211031849A link to the study can be found at https://ksi.uconn.edu/high-school-state-policies-2-2-2/.

  • Historically the Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ system utilized an “A - B - C” scale to estimate the legal ability and ethical standards of an attorney. To qualify for an “A” rating an attorney had to be reported as “Very High” in their legal ability and had been practicing for at least 10 years, a “B” rating meant an attorney was rated “High” and had to be practicing for at least 5 years, and a “C” rating meant that the attorney was rated “fair” with no limitations on how long they were practicing. A second rating was also given to go along with the “A - B - C” rating and that was a “V,” meaning that the attorney's peers stated they had "Very High" ethical standards. Over the years this transitioned to “AV”, “BV”, and “CV” ratings - with an “AV” rating meaning that the attorney had reached the highest of professional excellence and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity. Today, Martindale-Hubbell conducts a thorough review of attorneys who wish to receive a Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™, through a secure online peer review survey where a lawyer’s ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice is assessed by their peers.
