Margery M. Thorp founded her own firm of Margery M. Thorp, PLLC in 2016 after practicing extensively in the area of consumer insurance bad faith in various Florida State Circuit Courts, Florida Federal Courts in the Middle and Northern District, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. A staunch consumer advocate, Margery focuses her practice on protecting the interests of her clients after an accident or loss involving a claim with their insurer and making sure her clients know and understand their risks and rights under Florida law. Margery’s practice includes representing insureds in both first-party and third-party insurance claims.
Margery’s practice is guided by her core belief that consumers who purchase insurance have a right to experienced and unbiased personal counsel by their side after an accident or loss – someone who is not paid, not incentivized, and not employed by the insurance company and has no divided loyalties. Margery’s practice focuses on helping her clients navigate the often confusing front-end of the claims and settlement process before it is too late to protect themselves from potential financial injury. Insurance companies have vast resources, employees, and attorneys protecting their own risks during this process. Consumers deserve to have a legal advocate exclusively protecting their interests and advising them of their risks and rights during this process as well.
Margery received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas and her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois, where she graduated 5th in her class. While in law school, Margery interned as a Judicial Clerk to the Honorable Monica D. Reynolds in the Circuit of Cook County, Chancery Division, Chicago, Illinois, and also served as a Research Intern for Land Use Law and Zoning Digest with the American Planning Association. Margery served as Associate Editor of The John Marshall Law Review following selection of her Law Review Note for publication by the editorial board. While in law school, she was chosen as a three-year recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship Academic Award, the Law Review Scholarship Award and the Order of John Marshall.
Margery is admitted to practice law in Illinois and Florida. In addition to being admitted to all Illinois and Florida State Courts, Margery is admitted to practice and has actively practiced in the U.S. Federal Courts for the Northern District and Middle District of Florida as well and the U.S. Appellate Court for the Eleventh Circuit.
