Founding Partner

Steve Pajcic

Steve and his brother Gary founded The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic in 1974 with a goal of making a difference on our community. Through public service, his philanthropic donations and a commitment to seek justice for his clients, Steve has accomplished that goal and much more.

Testimonial

Steve played basketball at Princeton University and graduated Magna Cum Laude. He then went to Harvard Law School where he graduated with honors.

Steve enjoys supervising all the cases in the firm. He has tried a multitude of jury trials over the years and continues to be involved in most jury selections and trials today. His reputation for always being prepared and ready for trial has led to thousands of successful settlements. He takes great pride in being able to work each day with his son and three nephews.

Steve has always had a passion for public service. He was elected to the Florida House of Representatives for six terms. He received 7 consecutive St. Petersburg Times Award nominations as the Most Valuable Member of the State House. He was also the Florida Education Association’s Outstanding Legislator in 1980 and 1982.

Steve developed the idea and was the prime sponsor of the constitutional amendment increasing the Homestead exemption in Florida to $25,000. After losing a tight race for Governor, Steve retired from politics but remains active today supporting other candidates. He and his brother spearheaded the campaign of Nat Glover who was elected as the first African-American Sheriff in Jacksonville history.
