While studying Criminology and Political Science at Florida State University, I realized that I was thoroughly interested in the law. That interest took me across the country to San Diego, California, where I attended California Western School of Law. Upon graduation and passing the California Bar Examination, I made my way back to Florida where I Too sat for and passed the Florida Bar Examination.
I started my career as a litigator, representing major insurance companies in a wide variety of legal matters, ranging from property insurance, to construction defect and third-party liability claims. While I enjoyed those areas of law, I wanted to represent individuals instead of large corporations, so I joined The Ticktin Law Group, P.A.
At The Ticktin Law Group, I rose quickly to become a Junior Partner, representing a large portfolio of clients in many areas of law, including but not limited to, Mortgage Foreclosure. Defense, Family Law, Construction Law, Personal Injury, Homeowners Association Law, Consumer Law, and Landlord Tenant Litigation.
Thereafter, I formed The Law Office Of John A Wagner, PLLC. Here at The Law Office Of John A Wagner, PLLC, we have the goal of effectively and affordably utilizing our knowledge and experience to assist with our clients all of their legal needs.
Erica Kobloth - Of Counsel
I knew I was going to be a lawyer as young as 16. My decision was solidified during participation in the Law & Advocacy Program, National Student Leadership Conference, held at American University. Thereafter, I participated in mock trials and business law in high school, and obtained a position at Anthony Fiorello, LLC, a New Jersey law firm, focusing heavily in family law matters.
I am grateful to have been mentored in family law by Mr. Fiorello from high school through college, and even today.
I attended college at Fairleigh Dickenson University in Teaneck, New Jersey, where I majored in Criminal Justice. I was a member of the University Honors Program and was given the opportunity to present my honors thesis on Battered Woman’s Syndrome. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2007, magna cum laude.
After college, I relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, to obtain my law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law. I graduated with a Certificate in Family Law, and furthered my research in Battered Woman’s Syndrome, writing a research paper entitled “Battered Woman’s Syndrome: A Man’s Castle, a Woman’s Dungeon,” as well as writing in the area of juvenile criminal law, and earning a Deans List Commendation.
In 2011, I joined The Ticktin Law Group, where I handled a variety of litigation matters, including but not limited to, Family Law, Domestic Violence, Mortgage Foreclosure Defense, Criminal Law, Construction Law, and Contract Litigation. I obtained a vast amount of litigation experience, including being lead counsel in multiple trials in the areas of Family Law, Domestic Violence, and Foreclosure Defense.
In 2013, I was promoted to Junior Partner, and Managing Attorney of the firm’s Family Law Division where I managed approximately 200 cases, and was lead trial counsel in all facets of family law.
I resigned my position with The Ticktin Law Group, in July 2014, to join John A. Wagner, as a partner at The Law Office Of John A Wagner, PLLC. Having previously worked together for three years, John and I have developed a remarkable ability to effectively communicate and strategize with each other to create the best case plan for our clients’ goals and providing our clients with effective and affordable legal counsel.

The Law Office of John Wagner
Erica and John are true professionals in their field and cost effective, which helps when you are facing a devastating financial circumstances. The best quality about these two attorneys is they are kind yet straight forward as far as truly explaining what your legal options are and they are not trying to sell you a bunch of garbage just to move in on your hard earned money, where like most other attorneys just see dollar signs, these two see people and their families. John is not only kind but incredibly knowledgeable to the point where he may just leave you speechless, and I've had the pleasure of understanding options that I had no idea existed for me until. Erica is on point when it comes to family law, and has the correct attitude when helping you cope with the emotions that arise from a separation where timesharing of your children may come into play. She truly fights for your best interest. I have say the integrity they give their clients reflects in the quality of their work. They truly care about you!
Erica Kobloth #1
There are no words to describe the professionalism and knowledge Erica has. She was my attorney for a time sharing, custody and child support case and every court hearing we attended she was ready and literally 3 steps ahead of the other party. The dedication she gave to my case was phenomenal. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and definately recommend her. She is a fighter in the courtroom but a sweet and compassionate person outside. Thank you very much for your help Erica. I am forever in debt with you. You helped me bring my son back home and the peace we deserved. Thank you and God Bless you
Long story short, John was absolutely great to work with.
John Wagner is currently representing me in my case against Jiffy Lube. He has been an absolute life saver! We are on a quest to repair my vehicle which was damaged due to negligence on Jeffy Lubes behalf. He is extremely helpful and attentive. I would recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney!
Very professional expert witness
John Wagner, is s highly experienced and professional expert witness. Mr. Wagner, on very short notice, prepared for and testified as a fee expert for hearing I had for fees. Thanks in part to Mr. Wagner' testimony the Judge granted the full value of the fees sought.
Landlord tenant dispute
I had an emergency situation that happened to me on a Sunday where the apartment that I lived in was being shut down and they wanted me to leave with a four hour notice. Not knowing what to do on a Sunday I took a chance and called Mr. John Wagner an attorney in Palm Beach Gardens. Much to my surprise he answered the phone on a Sunday around noon time and proceeded to listen to my situation and was extremely helpful and said that he would contact me on Monday after he attended court and would assist me further in resolving the dispute! Once again much to my surprise Mr. Wagner called me the next day Monday in the afternoon as he said he would and gave me important advice and guidance that help me resolve the dispute I was involved in! As most of us know attorneys who actually care are hard to fine and Mr. John Wagner is definitely one of those so if you need legal advice of any kind the first stop I would recommend is calling Mr. John Wagner for his advice and expertise thank you so much Mr. Wagner!

Saved our home!
Do to an extremely tight deadline attorney Erica Helene Kobloths lightning fast response, as well as her determination we successfully stopped a forclosure sale at the last available opportunity to do so.
Supportive and Professional... …I am very grateful!
John Wagner is an awesome person who is always willing to go the extra mile. He assisted my family with a contract dispute and throughout the case, he was always supportive, caring, and understanding. It is so nice to be able to express your concerns to an attorney and have things explained to you without being rushed or bombarded with terms you don’t understand. Thank you so much John for your hard work and help!
What a excellent team
John and Erica have been such a tremendous assistance to me during my divorce. They have always made themselves available no matter how small the question. John and Erica took the time to give me such individual treatment every time I contacted them.
Erica's support to me during my divorce was fantastic. She provided me an end-to-end solution to help me through this difficult time to ensure I did it the best way possible.
Don't even bother with going to another attorney. John Wagner is superior in every single way. His follow up is impeccable and he can be counted on 100% to see your case through to its completion. John's best quality is that he actually calls you back in a timely fashion and is 100% honest! I have never met a man of such high moral fiber and genuine "heart". I would highly recommend him for all of your legal needs!
Professionalism and Integrity run deep with this Law Firm...I know, I'm still in shock too!!!
Shortly after hiring an attorney for whatever reason I needed one, I always felt like the attorney I hired never treated me like an individual after the initial consultation when they took my money. I felt like they looked at me as another paycheck and not really caring about the outcome of my case at all. Other attorneys would listen to me vent, smile, made me sign a long document, took my money then pushed a bunch of paper around which never turned up any results... just another bill from the law office saying I owe a gazillion dollars which was frustrating. Trying to get them to contact me back with updates was like pulling teeth. I have a new found trust and overall respect for attorneys after working with The Law Offices of John A. Wagner, P.A. They have been noting but professional in their dealings with me. They answer the phone, they return messages promptly and most important, they do what they say they will do. Integrity is a dying quality in today's society and it is a breath of fresh air to have found John Wagner and Erica Kobloth who really care about the people they serve and are not just focused on the money like most are in their profession. If you are looking for the "NO B.S." approach to your situation, honest dealings, transparency, and someone who has your back, look no further than The Law Offices of John A. Wagner, P.A. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who needs representation. They are now my Attorneys for life!
In every experience I've had with John Wagner, he's been wholly dependable, kind, diligent, and devoted. I could not possibly recommend him more! The world would be a better place if all attorneys were like him.
Great Law Firm Experience
Mr. Wagner assisted me throughtout the process of an insurance claim dispute. Throughout the process, I was impressed with his professionalism, promptness in returning my calls and found him to be extremely knowledgable. I would recommend Mr. Wagner's firm to anyone looking for legal assistance. I can assure you the quality of service and attention to detail needed in this industry will be achieved. Thank you Mr. Wagner!
