Mr. Annis began practicing law in Gainesville, Florida immediately upon graduation. He initially worked for a plaintiff's personal injury firm in Gainesville where learned the basics of handling personal injury cases, including: auto accidents, workers' compensation, slip and fall accidents, animal attacks, and various types of insurance claims, including PIP, life, homeowners and flood insurance. It was there that he met his assistant, Dolly Wright. Mrs. Wright has over 20 years of experience as a paralegal in Gainesville. She shares Mr. Annis' passion for helping injured people and has worked with Mr. Annis for the past 15 years.
