Ten Years Committed to Justice

Award-Winning Attorneys Experienced in Product Liability and Serious Injury Litigation. Our attorneys are regulary appointed to national steering committees for serious injury and product liability litigation.

The partners of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz are proud to be part of the Pensacola community. We hope to help lead the City's continued growth as a prosperous Souther port, preserving our rich cultural history and pristine natural resources.

Our firm is celebrating its ten year anniversary this month. In those ten years, our firm has grown from just two lawyers and two staff, housed in an attic of a small building on Garden Street, to fourteen attorneys and fifty-five staff operating out of our new downtown home in the historic Cedar Street Warehouse building.

Just like Pensacola, our firm has had ups and downs, but through it all has maintained its resolve to make Pensacola a better place, and to make sure we do our part. From Hurricane Ivan in 2004 that destroyed our firm's primary office, to Hurricane Dennis less than a year later that brought a flood to our new Pensacola offices, our staff and attorneys were committed to "rebuilding", just like the resilient people of the Gulf Coast. Though separated into three buildings across town, we knew that our clients desrved our "Commitment ot Justice" which led them to trsut us wuth their representation. In 2006, the firm moved downtown, occupying the old Department of Health building on the cornder of Palafox and Cervantes, celebrating its restoration as a Pensacola Landmark.

After four more years of continued growth, the firm was able to bring our entire family under one roof, moving to our new offices in Downtown Pensacola. The firm has truly been blessed with wonderful clients, dedicated employees, and immense success. But the partners of the firm understand that with great success, comes great responsibility.

We know that our clients depend on us to continue to fight for their rights, and to pursue justice zealously, maintaining honor and respect for our system of justice. We also know that we must be leaders for Pensacola and our community.

We accept that responsibility humbly and with gratitude.

New Office in Historic Downtown Pensacola Building

On September 1, 2010, the law firm of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz moved into its new offices at 17 East Main Street, in Pensacola, Florida. The firm now occupies over 10,000 Square feet of space on the second floor of what has been known in the past as the Cedar Street Warehouse, at the corner of Main and Palafox. The beautiful historic building is located a block from the Escambia County Courthouse, and two blocks from pristine Pensacola Bay.

Originally built in the early 1900s, the building served as a grocery store and distribution warehouse for much of the 20th century. The building underwent a major renovation in 1998, but the original 8x8 wood columns remain throughout the building, along with high ceilings and exposed original brick, creating the perfect blend of the modern office with the historic warehouse feel.

Originally based in Gulf Breeze, Florida, the firm has operated from multiple offices in both Pensacola and Gulf Breeze over the last ten years. But with growth to twelve (12) attorneys and over fifty (50) staff, the firm needed a new home, and now the entire firm operates out of the downtown Pensacola office.The office features four modern conference rooms, with state-of-the-art technology including projections screens, touch screen plasma panels, video conferencing, and video deposition capabilities.

The firm is very happy to have the entire AWKO family under one roof and is committed to serving its clients at the highest level for many years to come. Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz is also pleased to be part of the downtown Pensacola community, and play its part in assisting the continued investment in our historic downtown.

Congratulations to our attorneys selected to the 2011 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists.
