Stephen Brooks practices at the Brooks Law Group with offices in Tampa, Lakeland, and Winter Haven, Florida. Steve was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. As was the practice for new doctors his father worked day and night during his medical residency at Charity Hospital there.
Steve comes from a long line of doctor’s. His father, his grandfather, his great grandfather, even two uncles were all specialists and/or surgeons in their chosen medical specialties, including internal medicine specialist, obstetrics/gynecology, neurosurgery and general practice/surgery. His great-great grandfather was the Surgeon General of Ohio during the Civil War.
When Steve was two years old the Brooks family moved to Winter Haven, Florida where Steve’s dad, Beach A. Brooks, Sr. began practicing medicine at Bond Clinic. Growing up in Winter Haven was a great experience. People didn’t have to lock their doors and neighbors became close like family and looked out for each other.
Steve worked in the citrus fruit business and actively sold real estate after graduating from Stetson. During this time Steve’s brother and brother-in-law both attended Stetson University College of Law.
Steve often thought of becoming a lawyer, considering his great grandfather and an uncle had been lawyers. Steve finally decided to try law school after his citrus business went through extremely tough times following a recent freeze that devastated many private owners in the local citrus industry.
Steve attended Stetson University College of Law in St. Pete, Florida and graduated in 1986. He initially thought his love of real estate investing would translate as a love for real estate law. He soon learned that the joy and excitement he felt investing in real estate was completely absent in real estate law. He quickly learned he was more suited for the challenging field of litigation.
