Janet Varnell, Varnell & Warwick, PA, is a consumer class action expert leading over 60 cases and serving on plaintiff steering committees in MDL litigation, but also handles a variety of other high-impact public interest litigation. Her firm has won a multitude of appellate victories in state and federal courts, including a 2019 United Supreme Court win in a consumer class action. Varnell was awarded “Consumer Lawyer of the Year” in 2019 by the Florida Bar, 2009 “Consumer Advocate of the Year” by NACA and 2018 “Trial Lawyer of the Year” by Public Justice.  She is the President Elect of Public Justice’s Board of Directors, serves on the Partners Council of the National Consumer Law Center and is the past co-chair of the National Association of Consumer Advocates.

Ed Normand created Normand PLLC to concentrate his practice in complex litigation, primarily consumer class actions. He likes to look at Normand PLLC as the Robin Hood of law firms, sharing Robin Hood’s fervor to right wrongs and give back to the people that which is unjustly taken or owed to them by the powerful. For the past seven years, Ed has won multi-million dollar recoveries from large corporations who have violated the rights of consumers. He has gone to battle against some of the largest corporations in the world and has litigated extensively in both U.S. and international claims. By way of example, in just the last two years Ed was lead counsel in cases securing over 100 million dollars in insurance benefits for consumer shorted payments on total loss vehicles in Florida and across the United States. Ed has not only secured money for past benefits due, but he has also forced some of the biggest insurance companies in the world to change their business practices. Ed and his team at Normand PLLC derive great pleasure from correcting the wrongdoings of those corporations who mistreat consumers: doing their part to make the world a better and safer place.
