Tampa Attorneys Provide Comprehensive Legal Representation for Professional Athletes

Florida lawyers counsel active and retired athletes on all of life’s challenges

Frank Miranda Attorneys at Law is a legal resource for current and former athletes living in Florida or doing business here. Our Tampa firm understands the unique opportunities and pitfalls facing today’s professional athletes, and we are pleased to provide experienced counsel and effective representation for athletes in an array of professional sports, including football, lacrosse and boxing. We offer assistance with everything from player contract negotiations to outside business opportunities, wealth management and beyond. Our focus is on the athlete’s long-term success, both on and off the field.

Experienced lawyers represent athletes during their playing days

Our clients include high-profile, established stars in these sports as well as up-and-comers ready to make an impact. We offer comprehensive representation tailored to fit the career of each client individually. Athletes rely on our attorneys for advice and representation regarding:

  • Contract negotiation — We make sure athletes receive contracts that benefit them, not just the team. We don’t back down when it comes to salaries, free agency restrictions, contract length, injury provisions and other points of negotiation.
  • Branding and business management — Today’s athletes can control their own brands like never before. We counsel athletes on everything from setting up businesses to making endorsement deals to managing their social media presences.
  • League or team discipline — Like all of us, athletes make mistakes. But any discipline handed down must conform to the league’s collective bargaining agreement and general rules of fairness. We represent clients at disciplinary hearings, grievance hearings, arbitration and other proceedings.
  • Injury management and coaching — We want our athletes to be able to compete at the highest level for the longest possible time. With connections to doctors, coaches and instructors, we align our athletes with professionals who focus on health and maintaining maximum physician condition.

No matter how complex or basic an athlete’s need for legal help may be, our firm is equipped to meet their expectations.

Legal team prepares athletes for life after competition

The only thing certain about athletic competition is that no one can do it forever. In the NFL for example, the average is career is less than three years, and sadly, about 80 percent of NFL players suffer financial failures within two years of retirement.

We help athletes manage their finances, housing and other necessities so that they can enjoy a comfortable and productive life after retiring. Our attorneys have relationships with highly respected financial advisors, tax professionals and lifestyle coaches. Using a team approach, we help athletes:

  • develop and stick to a financial plan
  • acquire and protect assets
  • make investments
  • minimize and manage debt
  • set up trusts and other estate planning vehicles
  • stay in compliance with all federal and state tax laws

We are committed to the long-term success of our athlete clients, too many of whom are forgotten once they leave the field of play. You won’t be forgotten here.
