Elsea Law About
The Elsea Law Firm, P.A. is an aggressive and distinguished criminal defense firm in Tampa, Florida. The focus here is to provide advice and advocacy for those facing the most trying time of their lives. We know that before we can speak for you, we must listen to you. The founding partner, Joel Elsea, is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law and has spent 15 years advocating for justice in the courtrooms of Tampa and the rest of Florida. He spent more than a decade as a state prosecutor in Hillsborough county. He built cases, filed cases, and most importantly, he tried cases. As a prosecutor, Joel Elsea tried in over 75 jury trials (including nine separate homicide trials) to verdict. After his time with the State Attorney’s office, Mr. Elsea went on to join a Tampa-based plaintiff’s firm to advocate for the elderly who were victims of abuse and neglect. Joel Elsea decided to follow his passion and return to the courtrooms of the criminal justice system, founding the Elsea Law Firm, P.A. in 2020. Have you been accused of a crime? He will listen to you. He will speak for you. He will fight for you.
