Skilled Support at Plotnick Law, P.A.

Marc F. Plotnick, Founding AttorneyMarc F. Plotnick, Founding Attorney

Founding attorney Marc F. Plotnick is in the legal field because he loves helping people. He also finds the challenge of putting his client in the best possible position to be extremely rewarding. As a second-generation attorney, Attorney Plotnick grew up around the law and learned from his father’s example that through dedication and hard work, a lawyer can give their client the tools they need to improve their lives.

As a committed attorney in St. Petersburg, Attorney Plotnick feels that the most rewarding aspect of his job is when he is able to help a good person who made a poor decision. When our firm is able to prevent a conviction, sometimes even sealing or expunging that person’s record, we are happy knowing that their mistake will not haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Ashley N. Wagner, Paralegal at Plotnick LawAshley N. Wagner, Paralegal

I started working with Mr. Plotnick and Mr. Horning in 2011 which was a complete career change from real estate for 10 years. After a few months, I realized that I have a passion for the legal field. I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Science at the University of South Florida majoring in Criminology minoring in Legal Studies. I received my paralegal A.A.S. May of 2014. I truly enjoy my job every single day, never a dull moment! I have learned so much from both Marc and Paul it is such a pleasure to be a part of Plotnick Law, P.A.
