Spiro Verras has been practicing estate planning, real estate and other forms of business law for more than two decades
(PR NewsChannel) / July 16, 2013 / PALM HARBOR, Fla./ On July 9, 2013, the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the grand opening of Spiro J. Verras, Attorney at Law’s Palm Harbor office. In addition to over one hundred guests, dignitaries attending the event included State Rep. Carl Zimmerman, Congressman Gus Bilirakis’ District Director Elizabeth Hittos, Chamber President/CEO Connie Davis and “Honorary Mayor of Palm Harbor” Arlene Tracht.
Mr. Verras’ practice – focusing on estate planning, real estate, probate, and business law – was previously based in his Tampa office, located in Hyde Park Village. “I grew up in Tarpon Springs, and my family operated a restaurant in Palm Harbor for many years. Since many of my clients are located in Pinellas County, I’m delighted to return to the community,” Mr. Verras explained. “While our Tampa office will remain available to serve my Hillsborough County clients, I intend to spend most of my time working in the new Palm Harbor location.”
After graduating from Tarpon Springs High School, Mr. Verras attended Yale University and Tulane Law School. Upon completing his legal studies in 1993, Mr. Verras was hired by a prominent Louisiana law firm and was formerly a partner at Jones, Verras & Freiberg, a New Orleans-based multistate law firm, for which he opened a Tampa office in 2001. Mr. Verras subsequently served as managing partner of the Bilirakis Law Group and was also a co-founder of the Unthink social media project.
Mr. Verras’s practice focuses on estate planning, probate and trusts, real estate and closings, civil litigation, corporate and commercial transactions. “Practicing in a small firm setting for the first time in my career, my goal has been to create a relaxed, personal office environment with the capabilities I was accustomed to in a large firm,” he explained.
