E. Lynn Gibbons decided to be an attorney after prevailing as the prosecuting attorney for the “Goldilocks,” trial in Mr. Tom Haight’s Business Law class at Seminole High School in 1989. She earned her B.A. degree from the University of South Florida in three years in May of 1992. She attended law school at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, FL and received her Juris Doctor degree in December of 1994. She was admitted by the Florida Bar to practice law in the State of Florida in May of 1995. She is also admitted to practice in the Federal District before the Middle District of Florida.

She has limited her practice of law to the representation of injured workers, social security disability claimants and those injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of others. She has never represented an insurance company. She is a member of the Florida Bar, The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, the St. Petersburg Bar Association Workers Compensation and Social Security sections, and the Workers Compensation section of the Florida Bar. She has been Board Certified by the Florida Bar as a workers' compensation specialist since 2002. Her Certification was renewed in 2008 and again in 2012. She has been certified by the Supreme Court of Florida as Circuit Civil Mediator since 2002. Ms. Gibbons has not lost a workers compensation trial since 2008. Her very first jury trial in a personal injury case resulted in a $2.4 million dollar verdict for her client.

She was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and relocated with her family to Florida in 1984. She has been married for 23 years to her husband, Shannon, and has four children, Katie, Reilly, and twins Delanie and Dillan. Her hobbies include fishing, boating, snorkeling, cooking and watching her children play basketball and football. Her daughter, Katie, has followed in her footsteps – earning her B.A. from U.S.F. in two years, working as a paralegal at the firm and is currently attending Stetson University College of Law. Her son, Reilly, attended U.S.F., playing football for the Bulls and is now attending law school at the University of Notre Dame.
