In 1996, Pete began his focus on the representation of property owners throughout the state of Florida who have suffered termite damage, with claims against either their termite company or insurance carrier. In 1999, he was named the managing partner of the Tampa litigation department of a national law firm, a position he held until 2003. By then, his focus had evolved to the point of exclusively representing property owners with termite damage and insurance claims. Despite tremendous success in building that firm's Tampa litigation department from its genesis into a formidable team, Cardillo decided that he could best serve his Florida termite clients by opening his own boutique law firm. In 2003, Cardillo founded Cardillo Law Firm, and as a result, he has been able to devote the exclusive attention and service expected by his termite claim clients. He now handles termite damage related cases throughout Florida, in Georgia and other parts of the U.S.
