EDGAR J. GUZMAN

ATTORNEY  ABOGADO

Attorney Edgar J. Guzman is a proud Tampa native.

 

Edgar graduated from Christ the King Catholic School, Jesuit High School, University of South Florida, University of Tampa, and then moved to Michigan in order to attend the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Edgar also grew up playing baseball and creating unforgettable bonds with the families at West Tampa Little League.

 

While in college, Edgar was blessed when he met his wife on a blind date. Edgar and his wife have also been blessed with six beautiful children.

 

Edgar, a first generation American, personally knows the challenges a family faces in a new country.

 

Edgar's father, Gerardo L. Guzman, came to Tampa in 1969 from Venezuela to seek a higher education, while his mother, Maria A. Pi, came from Cuba in 1961 with her widowed mother seeking freedom from an oppressive government. Listening to the stories of the land left behind and observing the hardships his family faced all served as life lessons that molded Edgar as a person.

 

Edgar attributes his accomplishments to the principles he was taught at home: integrity, loyalty, honesty, strong work ethics, and an unwavering faith in God.

 

Guzman Law, P.A. is founded on these same principles.
