Ralph M. Guito, III

Attorney in Tampa, FL
A fourth generation Tampa native, Mr. Guito graduated from Jesuit High School in 1979. Son of Tampa trial lawyer, Ralph M. Guito, Jr., he was exposed to the legal profession at an early age. As a young boy, he was privileged to watch his father champion the rights of others in the courtrooms of the 1960s and 70s, always knowing that he would someday become an attorney, himself. Mr. Guito spent numerous hours in his father's firm law library, organizing and updating legal treatises, and acting as a runner and clerk.

At the University of South Florida, Mr. Guito earned his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, with the overall goal of obtaining a law degree and becoming a trial lawyer. Mr. Guito wanted to combine his background and education in engineering with his desire to practice law by focusing in the fields of patent and intellectual property litigation, products liability and construction litigation.

Upon graduation, Mr. Guito served as a mechanical engineer for a division of the nationally-renowned engineering firm of Arnold & O'Sheridan in matters involving mechanical design, electrical service/distribution design, bid preparation, sales, contract negotiation, specification drafting and construction supervision. True to his early calling, he went on to attend Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, his father's alma mater.

In law school, Mr. Guito held the position of Associate Editor of The Cumberland Law Review, was active in the Cumberland Mock Trial and Moot Court Competitions. He was also an editor in the Cumberland Trial Advocacy Board, the student section of the American Board of Trial Advocacy, and the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity. He graduated with honors, cum laude.

Over the next 23 years, Mr. Guito tried extensive multi-state and federal litigation cases. His experience includes complex business litigation, insurance & casualty, products liability, personal injury, wrongful death, professional malpractice, construction law, intellectual property, including patents, trademarks & copyrights, franchising, distribution and related litigation.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
