Dwight Gibiser is a senior associate in WSHB's Miami office. He focuses his practice on complex tort and casualty matters.
Born and raised in Oviedo, Florida, Dwight earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University and his Juris Doctor from the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern University. While in law school, he participated in the Veterans’ Law Clinic where he assisted military veterans with a variety of legal issues ranging from family law to criminal defense. He also participated in the Nova Trial Team and ILSA Journal of International and Comparative Law.
After graduating from law school, Dwight joined the Broward County Public Defender’s Office where he was a Public Defender. He represented thousands of criminal defendants on charges ranging from minor misdemeanor offenses and DUIs up to 1st-degree felonies and life felonies. Due to his dedication to his clients, Dwight was promoted to a lead felony attorney tasked with supervising other lawyers in his division in addition to handling a full caseload of the division’s most serious offenses. It was at this time that Dwight tried dozens of cases to verdict and argued numerous motions to suppress and dismiss successfully. In 2017-2018, he was awarded the Double Hat Trick award by the Broward Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers for securing 6 consecutive not-guilty verdicts through jury trials.
Before joining WSHB, Dwight entered into private criminal defense practice. He continued to represent clients charged with serious criminal offenses throughout Florida. He also represented clients in post-conviction proceedings, where Dwight attempted to overturn wrongful convictions and secure new trials for wrongfully sentenced criminal defendants.
