Aronfeld has enjoyed powerful courtroom victories over Walt Disney World, Wild Oats, P.A.C. Construction, Fedan Tire, and Todel Apartments and has gained international recognition as a lawyer for the people.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Aronfeld graduated cum laude from the University Of Miami School Of Law in 1991. Upon graduation, he founded his own firm, in Coral Gables, Florida. He has dedicated his life to representing individuals against corporate giants, such as the Florida Marlins, Bayside Marketplace, Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami-Dade County, Mt. Sinai Hospital, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd., State Farm Insurance Company, United Automobile Insurance Company, Baptist Hospitals and International Airplane Leasing.

Aronfeld earned international recognition after his first jury trial, when an Orlando, Florida jury awarded his Uruguayan clients a $100,000.00 verdict against Walt Disney World. Before trial, Disney had offered his clients only $1,200.00. That verdict remains one of the largest in a personal injury case against the Mouse and his legal battle was recounted in the book, Disney, “The Mouse Betrayed.” The story is currently in pre-production with a major Hollywood studio.

Aronfeld graduated from the Trial Lawyer College, a non-profit institution founded and directed by legendary trial lawyer, Gerry Spence in Dubois, Wyoming. Lawyers are admitted by invitation only and learn how to try cases on behalf of the people. Aronfeld has since returned as part of the faculty and has joined Spence on several of his nationwide book tours.

Aronfeld has hosted his own weekly radio talk and lectures frequently around the country. He has appeared on the Today Show, Court TV, Primer Impacto, Montel, Tyra, Dateline NBC, America’s Most Wanted, The Insider and CNN.

Aronfeld is a Board Certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer by both The Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Likewise, Spencer Aronfeld is an active member of The Florida Bar and has substantial experience in his area of specialty: Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Law.

In 2007 Aronfeld was recognized as one of Florida’s Super Lawyers and Florida Magazine named him one of the 20 Most Intriguing Floridians. In addition to The Florida Bar, he is admitted to practice in Federal Court, the District of Colombia and the United States Supreme Court. He is a member of American Justice Association, Miami-Dade Justice Association, Trial Lawyers for Public Justice and an Eagle Member of the Florida Justice Association. His firm is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell.

Aronfeld lectures at the prestigious Trial Lawyers College, founded by legendary lawyer Gerry Spence and open by invitation only; he also tours with Mr. Spence. He is licensed to practice in Florida and the District of Columbia, and was admitted to both the Federal District Court Practice (1992) and the Federal Trial Bar of the US District Court (1993). He has chaired seminars for the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers and spoken at the annual convention of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America in San Francisco. Despite his national visibility, Aronfeld is deeply tied to the Miami area.

Aronfeld and his wife Dina founded Lawyers to the Rescue, a non-denominational humanitarian organization committed to bringing legal assistance and humanitarian support to people around the world in times of crisis regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or political affiliation.

Dedicated to changing the lives of young people, Aronfeld also wrote a book, “Sara Rose, Kid Lawyer,” a heroic tale of an elementary school girl who learns how the art of arguing and debate can lead to a legal career.
