Born and raised in Minnesota, Tony Sos transferred from Northern State University in South Dakota to UCF when his family moved to Orlando. A Florida resident ever since, Sos attended the Levin College of Law at University of Florida. He joined the law firm of Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos in 2004. The firm specializes in personal injury law. In a community flooded with personal injury commercials, DWKMRS does not advertise, instead relying on their reputation and referrals.
Tony has distinguished himself in the courtroom by consistently achieving verdicts on behalf of his clients. Some notable results include a $5.3 million dollar verdict for a client who was rear-ended in a motor vehicle collision and sustained significant brain injuries, $1.7 million dollar verdict for an elderly woman who was financially exploited by a con artist, and a $3 million dollar verdict for a wife who lost her husband to a drunk driver.
Working with people who have been seriously injured has inspired Sos to be an advocate for accident prevention. For example, as part of a medical malpractice settlement on behalf of a client, he championed the implementation of a software program at a local hospital that automatically converts kilograms to pounds after working with a client who was injured from an improper medication dosage as the result of a conversion error.
Sos has been recognized as a “Florida Super Lawyer” every year from 2013 to the present. He served as President of the Orange County Bar Association from 2019-2020.
Sos is passionately dedicated to building a better community and helping people in need. He has been an executive board member of United Cerebral Palsy of Central Florida and in 2016 was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors. Sos is also a mentor to the young lawyers of the Orange County Bar Association, where he has been an active contributing member for the duration of his career.
