Straughn & Turner, P.A. is pleased to announce the addition of a new partner and two new associates to their expanding practice in Winter Haven. Prominent local attorney Douglas A. Lockwood, III will join the firm as a partner, while Richard Straughn’s daughter, Marie Straughn, will become an associate.

Doug Lockwood brings more than 30 years of experience to the firm. The Winter Haven native has primarily handled civil litigation and dispute resolution matters throughout Florida. He is board certified in both civil law and business litigation, an honor held by only two percent of the members of The Florida Bar. He will join the firm on October 20.

The addition of Marie Straughn marks the third generation of Straughns to practice law with the firm. Born and raised in Winter Haven, Marie Straughn graduated from Stetson University College of Law in May 2014. While she hopes to develop a working knowledge of several areas of law, her current interests are real estate, contracts and business law.

Founded by Jack Straughn in 1950, Straughn & Turner, P.A. has been serving clients with exceptional legal services for 64 years. With core values of integrity and trust, the firm’s comprehensive practice provides counsel in a number of areas, including business law, real estate, estate planning, trusts and general litigation.

The firm has long been active in civic affairs and community service. In addition to performing countless leadership roles in local community organizations, all three partners have served as president of the Greater Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce.

This expansion of the firm will allow Straughn & Turner, P.A. to continue to meet the business and litigation demands of its growing client base.
