We represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of others. We understand how insurance companies and lawyers on the other side operate. Insurance companies are interested in minimizing their economic exposure when a serious injury or death has occurred. They hire attorneys whose job is to aggressively defend each aspect of your claim. We take each case on as if it will ultimately proceed to trial and we approach every case with the intent to secure a jury verdict if that is what is necessary to produce the best possible result for our clients. All of the cases we pursue are done on a contingency fee basis. Our firm will never charge you a standard fee for services rendered in a personal injury matter.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Serious car and other motor vehicle accidents require the guidance of an experienced attorney. We have years of experience and an impressive track record representing people who have sustained significant injuries or death in motor vehicle accidents (in both a commercial and personal context). We work with your physicians and other health care providers to assess and review all the short and long-term medical elements of your case. Our detailed understanding of Florida's automobile insurance and liability laws means we understand the different potential sources of recovery available to car accident victims and their families as well as the legal theories that enable those victims to collect from the parties who may be responsible.
Our firm handles premises liability cases developed on the numerous theories of negligence that may be pursued against a property owner or his representatives. These cases often include accidents which have occurred at the following:
- Residential homes
- Hotels and Motels
- Commercial Properties
- Apartment Complexes
- Municipality and State owned properties
The most essential element in the representation of an individual involved in an accident based upon a dangerous property condition is timely investigation. The preservation of the integrity of the accident scene is imperative to successful representation. Our office uses private investigators and experts to help discover and preserve all the evidentiary elements relevant to your claim.
Our Office represents both individual and corporate clients in a number of different areas involving business and commercial litigation. Our clients in the sector range all the way from the sole proprietor to large corporations. This wide array of clients makes it necessary to be responsive to the legal needs of everyone from the small businessman to the large corporate entity. Our attorneys have acquired vast experience in handling the day-to-day operations of both types of business organizations, and the legal issues that are often associated with such entities.
The primary goal of most businesses is to maintain profitability, while securing the integrity of their business objective. Our services are focused on addressing both these issues by providing legal services at competitive rates without compromising quality. Our services are available on both hourly and annual retainers. Clients are treated individually on a customized basis that is responsive to their needs and equitable to all parties involved.
It is imperative for businesses in today's environment to have the legal backing to enable them to address the many issues, which arise on a daily basis without seeking new legal representation on each occasion. It is our business relationship, which will result in security and long-term profitability. Our office is confident in the ability to provide legal services, which enable both small and large businesses to reach this goal with the knowledge that they need not compromise the quality of their legal representation.
Family law in Florida is constantly evolving. Our attorneys make every effort to stay apprised of the changes in the legislation relating to family law issues. Our commitment to staying up to date on the law ensures our clients receive the highest level of representation and the best possible results on their cases. Our firm handles most family law matters, including dissolution of marriage, child custody and child support, and adoption. We also represent clients seeking the modification of existing orders and settlement agreements that may no longer be appropriate given a change in circumstances. We understand the elevated levels of emotion involved in family matters and strive to balance aggressive representation with the consideration for client concerns. We approach each and every case with the hope of reaching an amicable solution and securing the most favorable result for our clients, while taking every measure possible to minimize cost.
However, it is often necessary to seek judicial intervention to resolve the issue that is not able to be resolved through mediation. Our lawyers prepare each case from day one with the expectation that it will ultimately be resolved by a judge. This approach secures the integrity of the client's case while exploring the possibility of settlement.
Our family law cases are billed on an hourly rate, with a fee structure that differs depending on the attorney handling the case. While our billable rates are non-negotiable, we make every effort to be flexible with our clients in addressing the significant financial burden of pursuing this type of case.
