The Full History of Steve Brooks and the Brooks Law Group

We thought it would be a nice idea to do put together a “Firm Timeline” for our clients and friends to learn how Brooks Law Group started and developed into what it is today.

Steve comes from a long line of doctors. His father, uncles, grandfather, and great grandfather were all doctors. Something changed for Steve and his brother Beach – they became lawyers. Steve was at first interested in Real Estate Law because he started buying real estate at the age of 14. What drove them to practicing personal injury law were their own personal experiences in being victims of auto accidents and the desire to help those who have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence.

Here is how Brooks Law Group developed into the firm that it is today:

1992- Stephen K. Brooks decided to start his own firm practicing Real Estate and Commercial Litigation – Just him and one assistant at a small location

1993- Steve immediately started learning Personal Injury Law and LOVED IT

1996- Beach A. Brooks, Steve’s brother who was with a larger firm, decided to join him

2003- Brooks Law Group moved to 123 First Street North in Winter Haven (right down the street from its very first location)

2007- Personal Injury Attorney Charles “CJ” Laycock joined the firm

2009 – The Firm got “too big for its britches” and expanded into the “Annex” building right next door

2011- The firm opened its “Havendale” Office in Winter Haven –the Social Security Extension of the Firm

2012- Brooks Law Group opened its Lakeland Office

2013- The firm now has a total of 4 Attorneys, 16 support staff, and 4 offices

2014 – Paula Gregory, Social Security Attorney, joined the firm
