About Michael

D. Michael Elkins attended Florida State University where he graduated with a B.S. in Mass Communication and worked as a radio DJ at several radio stations. He graduated law school at the University of Florida, worked for three years as an assistant public defender to gain trial experience, but has been involved in the handling of personal injury claims since 1988.


D. Michael Elkins is married and has a step-son who intends to pursue his own legal carMr. Elkins cut his legal teeth in the civil arena by defending claims for insurance companies. By being on the other side of the settlement table and the courtroom, he gained knowledge about the insurance companies’ tactics and how to counter them. After representing the injured for twenty-eight years in the Tampa Bay area, his long-time ties to South Georgia/North Florida caused him to leap at the chance to return to the area to work in the Tallahassee, Florida office of Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys in 2016. He feels that in his years of practice there is little that he hasn’t seen. He believes that a large part of his job consists of being a problem-solver for his clients and he looks forward to solving yours.


D. Michael Elkins is married with one step-son. When he’s not working he enjoys music, TV, movies, reading, collecting, options trading and DNA genealogy.
