In 1967, attorneys Joseph Barrs and John Williamson founded a firm dedicated to representing injured and disabled individuals. Vicki Stolberg joined the firm immediately out of law school in 1982 and became a partner after several years. Byron Townsend, a former medical malpractice and insurance defense attorney, went out on his own in 1987 to use his knowledge to represent plaintiffs. He merged his practice with Barrs, Williamson & Stolberg in 1990, creating Barrs, Williamson, Stolberg & Townsend, P.A. Mr. Barrs passed away in 1989 and Mr. Williamson retired in 2006. In 2007, the firm name was shortened to Stolberg & Townsend, P.A. With over 33 years of client service, Stolberg & Townsend, P.A. is proud to carry on the legacy of its founders.

What does it mean to be certified by the Florida Bar in an area of law?
According to the Florida Bar, Board Certification recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills, and proficiency in an area of law, as well as professionalism and ethics in practice. Board Certified attorneys are the only lawyers considered “experts” or “specialists” by the Florida Bar.
At Stolberg & Townsend, P.A., both partners are Board Certified in Workers’ Compensation Law. That means you can rest assured that an attorney with specialized knowledge about this area of law is representing you when you are a client of Stolberg & Townsend, P.A.
For many years Stolberg & Townsend, P.A., worked from their offices at the corner of Swann and Armenia Avenues. In 2014 the firm had an opportunity to move to a new location. After growing the practice for many years to keep up with the demand of a growing caseload, the partners consciously chose to return to a smaller, more client-focused practice. This change allows them to provide clients with a greater amount of attention.
The firm relocated to a new office at 3321 Henderson Blvd., Suite 201, Tampa, FL, 33609-2931. The building is located two blocks south of Kennedy Blvd. between Azeele and Cleveland Streets and is also home to Tampa Title Company and Gibbons, Neuman, P.A.
Vicki and Byron have been married for over twenty-eight years, making them partners in life as well as business. Their complimentary skills are utilized on a daily basis as they work together to resolve cases for their clients. They enjoy meeting and working with new clients as well as former clients, physicians, experts and other local business professionals. Their strong relationship with each other as well as legal and judicial experts in Tampa has strengthened the firm greatly over the years.

Proudly serving Tampa and surrounding counties with over 33 years
of experience handling auto accidents, personal injury, wrongful death, social security disability, and workers’ compensation law.
If you or someone you love has been injured or disabled,
