About

Kent Sands has been representing both plaintiffs and defendants in private practice for the better part of three decades, and he now brings that experience to bear as a full-time mediator and arbitrator.  Over the course of his legal career, he litigated personal injury and complex financial crime cases in state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels.  His practice was focused on torts involving medical negligence and product liability and insurance-related claims, as well as criminal litigation involving financial offenses such as tax and securities fraud, all of which typically involved complex issues and protracted litigation.  His goal as a mediator is to help parties get to the crux of their disputes to avoid the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation.  As he has done throughout his legal career, he will take the time to understand all parties’ unique circumstances and goals, and then he will tirelessly advocate for an equitable resolution.

Kent is a native of Central Florida. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Chicago in 1982 and graduated from Harvard Law School in 1985. He spent his early career representing clients of large corporate firms in New York City and South Florida and then served as a prosecutor with the Department of Justice in Washington before moving back to Central Florida in 1994 to resume private practice.
