Attorney William J. Bosch

Background

Mr. Bosch, partner, attended the University of Florida where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in political science in 1980.  Following graduation he was awarded a United States Department of Education Fellowship for joint studies in law and public administration at U.F. where he went on to earn a Master of Arts in 1983 in Political Science, followed by his Juris Doctorate (with Honors) in 1984.  Later that year he became a member of the Florida Bar.

His initial employment was at the Broward County Attorney’s Office, where he joined their Trial and Litigation Division, focusing on defending the county from claims involving civil rights and employment issues; tort and personal injury defense lawsuits; and eminent domain and inverse-taking claims.  During his nearly nine years with the County, he was involved in scores of jury trials and dozens of non-jury trials.  He defended the County in the various state, federal and administrative courts, handled numerous class action lawsuits, and trained many young trial lawyers within the office.

As a result of this success, he was recruited by the prestigious Miami-based law firm of Kubicki Draper which was developing a Government/Commercial Litigation section within its Fort Lauderdale offices.  While working for Kubicki Draper, Mr. Bosch became the Chief Trial Counsel for the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Expansion Project, responsible for condemning over 700 parcels of land surrounding the airport.  He also represented the Miami-Dade County School Board in school-site acquisitions, and the municipality of Florida City in post-Hurricane Andrew reconstruction matters.  He received an appointment to the Florida Bar’s Eminent Domain Law Committee.

After a brief period as an in-house insurance defense counsel for GEICO, Mr. Bosch accepted an offer to become a Senior Assistant City Attorney for the City of Pompano Beach, where his practice consisted of a mixture of general civil litigation, administrative law, and local land use issues.  He was the attorney for various City boards, including its Zoning Board of Appeals, its Planning Board and the Unsafe Structure Board.  While employed by the City, Mr. Bosch acted as attorney for the City’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), acquiring approximately 70 properties through voluntary acquisition or eminent domain petitions, from within the City’s blighted residential sections, and re-platting them for future development to create economic opportunities for those living in the lower-income areas of the City. Mr. Bosch, on behalf of the City, filed a class action lawsuit and then led a significant coalition of South Florida local governments in their successful legal challenge to the State’s Department of Agriculture Citrus Canker Eradication Program in order to preserve private citrus trees in that region of the state from planned destruction without compensation or legal writs or warrants.

During this time, Mr. Bosch also served part-time as a Special Master to the City of Dania Beach, presiding over vehicular forfeiture cases brought by the Broward Sheriff’s Office on behalf of Dania Beach, for drug or prostitution related offenses.

In 2002 Mr. Bosch moved to Volusia County, becoming Assistant County Attorney in the County Attorney Office’s litigation section, where once again his practice consisted of defending against personal injury, civil rights, ADA and Title VII lawsuits, and various administrative (Chapter 120) challenges brought before the Public Service Commission or the Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH).  He defended the County against the NAACP state-wide class action suit resulting from the 2000 Presidential election, and drafted the settlement document utilized by many of the county defendants to end the challenge while ensuring the continuing integrity of the election process.

In September 2004, Mr. Bosch joined Chiumento & Associates, P.A. in Flagler County.  His practice concentrated primarily on general civil litigation, including real estate and real property litigation, contract disputes, construction and contractor issues, and landlord/tenant matters.  He accepted a limited number of personal injury clients, selectively representing individuals who had been injured due to the negligence of others.  He also began a vigorous family law practice.

In October, 2007, Mr. Bosch joined Timothy J. Conner, P.A., to form the new firm, Conner Bosch Law, P.A.  The firm was located on A1A in “The Hammock” of Flagler County.  He continued to concentrate on civil litigation, land use and zoning, real estate, personal injury, as well as an emphasis upon family law and landlord-tenant matters.

Finally, in September of 2021, he returned to his former firm as a partner.  The firm is now known as Chiumento Law, P.L.L.C.  He has represented the Town of Beverly Beach for the past four years, and added construction litigation to his growing client base.  He heads-up the firm’s Litigation-Family Law Department and continues to be heavily involved with landlord-tenant matters, representing a number of Property Management companies, as well as several Condominium Associations.

During his 39-year legal career, Mr. Bosch has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Southern District of Florida (regular and trial bar) and U.S. Middle District of Florida, as well as the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.  He graduated from Leadership Flagler XIII (2005) and was a member of the City of Bunnell’s CRA Advisory Board for five years as well as a member of that city’s 2006 Charter Review Commission.  Mr. Bosch served six years as a Hearing Officer for the City of Orlando for zoning and land use appeals, and was appointed as Special Magistrate for Code Enforcement for the City of Flagler Beach..  In May 2009, he was elected President of the Flagler County Bar Association after serving two years as its Vice President.  He was re-elected for another term as President in 2011 and continues to serve on its Board of Directors, providing the Board with a sense of continuity.  He was asked to join the Flagler Housing Partnership, and proudly serves on the Board of Directors for Flagler Habitat for Humanity.

Since 1992, Mr. Bosch has been providing pro bono legal services to those unable to afford legal representation.  He has been named a “Guardian of Justice” by Mid-Florida Community Legal Services for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011, and was named a “Champion of Justice” in 2012.  That same year, he received the “Pro Bono Attorney of the Year” award. In March, 2014, he was named the Mid-Florida Community Legal Services “Attorney of the Month” for the pro bono services rendered. In April 2014 he was appointed to the Board of Directors for Precious Hearts Foundation whose purpose is to assist the homeless and victims of domestic abuse.  He currently provides free legal clinics in family and landlord-tenant law.
