Weimorts, Michael
Weimorts Law Firm

Attorney Michael Weimorts always knew he would live in the local area. His family has been here for six generations and he was raised here. He loves the Gulf, the bay, the rivers, and the woods, and he is also very comfortable with the people here too.

After graduating from Fort Walton Beach High School, Attorney Weimorts pursued his college education with a Political Science major. Four years later, he received his Bachelor’s degree, took a year off, and worked as a lifeguard and deckhand before going to graduate school. Using his Master’s degree in Political Science, he worked as a campaign consultant for the Republican Party on State Representative’s races in Central Florida. He then worked as a lobbyist in Tallahassee for a statewide group of  more than 2,000 doctors.

After working for two legislative sessions, he returned to school for his law degree. Throughout law school, Attorney Michael Weimorts clerked for law firms with litigation practices; enjoying the adversarial process associated with lawsuits.

Upon receiving his law degree, he returned to the Emerald Coast and accepted a position as prosecutor with the State Attorney’s Office. Over the course of his time as a prosecutor, he handled thousands of cases and tried dozens. He then left the State Attorney’s Office and began work with a small litigation firm in Destin, FL. There, he learned to handle personal injury cases and family law matters.

After a few years, he decided to start his own firm. Concentrating on litigation cases, and relying on referrals from former clients, he has established a strong practice focused on personal injury, criminal defense and family law litigation – all based on communicating closely and remaining available for clients.

He remains active in the local community too! He has previously served as a mentor and, later, President of the Board of Directors of the Seaside Neighborhood School. Over the past two years, he has concentrated his efforts on serving as a board member with the Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast.

Andrew D. Wheeler attended the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, and graduated with a Juris Doctorate of law in 2002. Over the past twelve years, Andrew has represented over 2,000 clients in cases involving family law and probate litigation, and counseled clients on elder law rights, long-term care planning and general estate planning.

Andrew regularly interacts with the public by speaking to groups of people on elder law topics, including long-term care planning and techniques to avoid probate litigation. In 2012, Andrew began teaching seminars on adoption law through the National Business Institute, providing guidance to other attorneys on proper procedures to secure adoptions of children.

While attending law school, Andrew was active in numerous legal writing opportunities, won awards for legal writing and was selected as a member of the Cumberland Law Review.

While completing a variety of courses that focused on transactional law and business principles, Andrew worked as a research assistant and intern for Chief Magistrate Judge John Ott in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.
