Your Team

The process of choosing a personal attorney to help you navigate your serious injury or wrongful death case can be an overwhelming task. At Hancock Law, we believe choosing your lawyer should be a search for the right personal relationship. Attorneys are people, too…some you may like and some you may dislike. You should not have to enter into an attorney-client relationship without personally speaking with the lawyer who will be representing you.

At Hancock Law, we are laser-focused on representing our clients with empathy, compassion, and skill while achieving the best possible results. We are your biggest advocate, and work with you to achieve the best outcome possible with no surprises along the way.

Kenneth Hancock

Personal Injury Attorney

Kenneth Hancock has all the hard credentials you would expect in an experienced attorney. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Florida Southern College in 2001. From there, he obtained his Juris Doctorate at Nova Southeastern University in 2005. Kenneth was sworn in as a Florida attorney in October of 2005. He has spent his entire career working for accident victims.

Right out of law school, Kenneth handled class action cases on behalf of consumers for a Birmingham, Alabama law firm at their Coral Gables office. In April of 2006, Kenneth started practicing for a law firm in the areas of personal injury and insurance claims. He eventually started his own practice, Hancock Law, in 2011.

As a native Arcadian, Kenneth has the values of this area – family man, loyal churchgoer, community leader, and maker of his family’s morning breakfast. He treats every client like a member if his family. In this community, he believes it is important to resolve legal issues with diplomacy, discretion and, where necessary, an iron fist (with, of course, a velvet glove).

Do not be misled by his small-town values and diplomacy. While he has the soft skills to be an empathetic attorney and an effective negotiator, Kenneth will fight for you and the best resolution of your case. He takes the time to meet one-on-one with clients and makes every effort to minimize the emotional stress during the pre-suit and litigation processes.

Kenneth is a fifth generation Floridian born and raised in DeSoto County. He resides there with his wife and three children. Kenneth enjoys family, reading, helping others and just about anything involving the outdoors.

Carly A. Pizzurro

Carly is driven, fearless, smart and, perhaps most importantly, extremely organized. She seeks out challenges, pushes herself for professional growth and is committed to her work. She is good with people and is a servant at heart. These characteristics make Carly a “right person, right seat” fit as Hancock Law’s litigation paralegal. She also helps with our Estate Planning files.
