    April 11, 2016


    Ernest W. Sturges, Jr. AV Preeminent by Rated Martindale Hubbell

    • AV Preeminent Rated by Martindale Hubbell
    • Helping real estate clients and community association boards for 18 years
    • Prompt, effective, and personal communication with your attorney
    • Port Charlotte is my family’s home, not just an office location

    I have practiced real estate and community association law for approximately 18 years, and during that time have achieved an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell, the primary rating service for attorneys in the United States for well over 100 years. Less than 5% of attorneys nationwide ever obtain Martindale Hubbell’s AV rating, the highest rating achievable. This rating is based on the confidential opinions of other lawyers and judges, who best know my abilities both inside and outside the courtroom, as well as the detailed manner in which I help each and every one of my clients. After serving as a prosecutor it the 20th Judicial Circuit, I began working in private practice focusing on assisting clients with real estate transactions and advising community associations.

    Our commitment is to provide prompt, efficient and personal communication with our clients regarding their real estate transaction or with the board of directors of a community association. At GTS, I am actively involved in each and every aspect of your matter from start to finish, because as a client you are entitled to receive personal attention rather than being considered just another “number in the system”.

    I grew up in Charlotte County, attended public schools in Charlotte County, and returned to Charlotte County where I met my wife and we raise our children. While many law firms “have offices” in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, or Englewood, Charlotte County has been my home since 1977. I believe my law firm is a reflection of the Charlotte County community: we’re straight-forward, and offer a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for our clients. I’m most proud of the incredible reviews myself and my partners have received in various online legal directories, with the most common phrases we read are “straight-forward”, “to the point”, “felt at ease”, “reassuring”, “responsive”, “open lines of communication”, and “plain English”. As your hometown law firm, this is exactly what we strive to be.
