Seth Donahoe, an associate at Tripp Scott, concentrates his practice on civil litigation. Seth attended the University of Florida Levin College of Law where he earned his J.D., magna cum laude, and the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University where he earned his B.A., magna cum laude. During law school, Seth served as president of the Florida Moot Court Team, and as the student commencement speaker at graduation. He was also a recipient of the Scott and Lisa Hawkins Character and Leadership Scholarship.
While a member of the Moot Court Team, he was selected twice to participate in the school’s intracollegiete competitions where he presented oral arguments to a panel of justices from the Florida Supreme Court and, in a another competition, to a panel of judges from Florida Federal District Courts and Florida District Courts of Appeal. Seth won every intracollegiete competition he participated in, and received several top orator and best brief awards at ABA National Appellate Advocacy intercollegiate competitions (both regionally and nationally). Seth also coached two moot court teams that went on to win local and national competitions.
Seth is dedicated to serving the academic, legal, and regional community. He ran the UF Law Community Service Program, chaired the Honor Committee, and served as a teaching assistant for legal writing courses as well as a research assistant for two different law professors. Seth focused a large portion of his study and writing during law school on emerging issues in electronic discovery, privacy law, Florida constitutional law, and cybersecurity—topics that he still follows closely today.
Prior to pursuing his legal career, Seth worked in real estate and mortgage financing for nearly a decade. Throughout this time, he helped develop and manage a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio for a private investor, co-managed a real estate brokerage firm, and regularly facilitated the purchase and financing of residential and commercial properties.
