Founder of Florida Injury Attorneys, Attorney Chelsie Lamie, comes from a family of modest financial means. She understands what it’s like to put in an honest day’s work. Chelsie put herself through college and law school while working multiple jobs. She worked in an assembly line at a factory, putting together boxes; waiting tables at restaurants; and answering phones at doctors’ offices. There is no job beneath her, and there’s no shame in rough hands or tired feet. Chelsie appreciates that her clients come from a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds and respects her clients for their dedication to their families as they continue to work through the pain to provide for their families.
Compassion motivates Florida Injury Attorneys to be actively involved in its community. Our attorneys and paralegals are passionate about helping local disadvantaged youth and by providing for the homeless by assembling and distributing ‘compassion bags’ to those in need. Florida Injury Attorneys founder, Attorney Chelsie Lamie understands what it’s like to go through tough personal and financial times because she has been there, having been homeless during portions of her youth. She is thankful for the many people who inspired and helped her in our journey, and enjoys seeking out opportunities to ‘pay it forward’ and offer a hand up to those walking the path she has traveled.
Florida Injury Attorneys strives to cultivate a culture of compassion within our law firm. Our unique office policies reward our team for their hard work and dedication which ultimately results in better service and results for our clients.
I truly love the American Civil Justice system. It is my great pleasure to zealously represent my injured clients in the courtroom. I believe that our right to trial by jury is one of the greatest pillars of democracy and that this process remains necessary to protect the powerless from the powerful and to set standards for responsible behavior in our communities.
While many clients of other law firms complain of never meeting or speaking with their attorney, I take the time to meet with each of my clients personally at the beginning of their case. I also personally call each of my clients every month while I handle their case to check in with them and answer any questions that they may have. I hope that you will give me the opportunity to sit down with you, to get to know you and to discuss your potential case. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Attorney Bethany Dolezal was born and raised in Walkerton, Indiana. For most of her childhood, Bethany was home schooled, which allowed her the opportunity to begin college at age 15. She earned her bachelor’s degree in mass communication, with a concentration in speech communication, from St. Mary’s College of Notre Dame in Indiana. Upon graduation, she moved to Lansing, Michigan, and attended Western Michigan University Cooley Law School.
During the first week of law school after her first class of Torts, Bethany knew that she wanted to pursue a career in personal injury law. As she neared the completion of law school in 2014, she interned with a local personal injury firm in Tampa, where she began her professional relationship with Attorney Chelsie Lamie. After earning her Juris Doctor degree, Bethany accepted a position as lead litigation paralegal at the Personal Injury Law Office of Chelsie M. Lamie, P.A in 2016. Bethany worked closely with Chelsie over the next six years, gaining extensive knowledge and experience in the area of personal injury litigation. In 2020, Bethany was admitted to the Florida Bar and transitioned from the firm’s lead litigation paralegal to an Associate Attorney.
Bethany resides in Treasure Island, Florida, with her husband, Jay, and their four children, Lyla, Jonah, Charlee, and Jude. In her free time, she enjoys portrait drawing, painting and spending time with her young family, instilling in her children the same values that have helped her succeed in life: determination, hard work, compassion and respect.
Nicole was born and raised in a small town near Canton, Ohio. From an early age, she learned dedication and a strong work ethic from her parents who both worked full-time while simultaneously caring for the family. When she graduated high school, Nicole moved to the Sunshine State to attend undergraduate studies where she earned a dual bachelor’s degree in criminology and sociology from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida.
During her time at FSC, Nicole interned at the State Attorney’s Office for the 10th Judicial Circuit where she became fascinated with legal process and procedure. Then in 2010, Nicole became a Certified Paralegal through the St. Petersburg College post-baccalaureate program and began working with a local Personal Injury law office.
Coming to our firm in 2016, Nicole had experience in file intakes, initial investigation and fact gathering, along with experience in mass torts and multidistrict litigation. Starting as a personal assistant, she quickly moved into the role of our Pre-Litigation paralegal. She specializes in all pre-suit matters and assists upon settlement of cases. Her greatest “work win” is when we obtain a settlement for a deserving client that exceeds their expectations. Those are truly the best phone calls to make!
Nicole resides in Safety Harbor, Florida, with her husband, Curt, and their two sons, Cole, and Coby. In her free time, she enjoys spending time at the beach, reading, and completing home DIY projects. Though most evenings, you can catch her at the ball fields cheering on her boys! Through this, she hopes that she too can encourage the dedication and strong work ethic in her boys that she was raised with.
