Mr. Bosch attended the University of Florida where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree 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, followed by his Juris Doctor (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 various State, Federal and administrative courts, handled numerous class action lawsuits, and mentored many young trial lawyers within the office.

As a result of this success, he was recruited by the 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 briefly serving 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 attorney for various City Boards, including the Zoning Board of Appeals, the 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. 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 for drug or prostitution related offenses.

In 2002 Mr. Bosch and his family moved to Volusia County, becoming an 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 Federal 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 continuing integrity of the election process.

In September 2004, Mr. Bosch joined Chiumento & Guntharp, P.A. 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.

In October 2007, Mr. Bosch joined Timothy J. Conner, P.A., to form Conner Bosch Law, P.A. He continues to concentrate on Civil Litigation, Real Estate, Landlord/Tenant matters, Personal Injury, as well as an emphasis upon Family Law cases.

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 is a member of the City of Bunnell’s CRA Advisory Board as well as a member of that City’s Charter Review Commission. Mr. Bosch serves as a Hearing Officer for the City of Orlando for zoning and land use appeals. He is currently serving his second term as the President of the Flagler County Bar Association.
