Ronnie Bitman continues to demonstrate why he is one of Orlando's most promising young lawyers. Having been named to Florida Trend's 2010 "Up & Comers" and Super Lawyers' "Rising Stars" 2012, Ronnie litigates a range of complex and novel matters. Ronnie is well-versed in complex litigation, including class actions, consumer protection matters, contract and employment disputes, trade secret, unfair and deceptive practices, personal injury, and various other consumer and commercial-related matters.
Some of his recent important cases include the settlement of Virgilio v. Ryland Group, Inc. and the prosecution of eight related class action law suits stemming from a homebuilder's failure to disclose to homeowners that their homes rested upon land that was used as a World War II bombing range and where live munitions and other dangerous debris remain present. In addition, Ronnie successfully represented Golf Channel commentator, Mark Lye, in defense of a multi-million dollar real estate and mortgage fraud matter.
Ronnie remains a fixture in the Florida foreclosure scene as well, representing various banks and servicers in the prosecution and defense of highly-contested and heavily litigated foreclosure-related actions.
While in College, Ronnie acted as an aide to the general manager of the Los Angeles Kings Hockey Club of the National Hockey League, assisting with player salary negotiations and arbitrations. In addition, he acted as a scout for the Los Angeles Kings in preparation for the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.
