A graduate of the University of Florida College of Law, Ted Doran oversees the firm of Doran, Sims, Wolfe & Ciocchetti as managing partner. Over the course of his more than 30 years as a lawyer, Ted Doran has successfully tried numerous cases, including a 2013 case in which he won the State of Florida $15 million.

In November 2013, the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee upheld a $15 million judgment against BB&T bank in a case involving approximately $12.5 million in certificates of deposit (CDs) from two insurance companies with common owners. Mr. Doran’s firm originally won the case in June 2012, and the resulting award marked the third-biggest award for Florida’s receiver.

The firm had previously won one of the state’s largest awards in a $17 million judgment against the Doctors’ Company in 2005. After attorneys’ fees and costs, the judgment rose to more than $20 million.

Ted Doran of Daytona Beach, Florida, is a senior partner with Doran Sims Wolfe & Ciocchetti. Ted Doran is also a supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs (BGC) of Volusia/Flagler Counties.

BGC clubs are located in eight communities within the counties of Volusia and Flagler. The purpose of the clubs is to provide a safe environment for youth to gather when school is not in session, while teaching leadership skills and self-respect.

Serving 1,600 area youth, the organization offers programs in education, the environment, alcohol and drug prevention, gang prevention, pregnancy prevention, leadership development, and athletics, among others.

Last year, BGC of Volusia and Flagler Counties saw 100 percent of club members participate in the educational reinforcement program, Project Learn, and in the SMART Moves prevention program. The SMART Moves program teaches self-esteem and resistance to peer pressure to engage in sexual activity, gangs, alcohol, and marijuana. There were no club members arrested and no pregnancies reported in 2015.
