Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Accidents happen in unlimited ways.  From auto accidents to slip and falls to product defects, if you or someone you love suffers an injury or is killed as a result of negligence, you may have a claim for monetary damages.  If your own negligence causes an accident, but your insurance company doesn’t value your claim properly, an attorney may be able to help.  If someone wrongly defames you or somehow damages your reputation, the law may provide a remedy, and it takes an experienced attorney to assess the claim and maximize your recovery.  Our firm handles a wide variety of damage claims, even those that come along very rarely.

Family Law

Family law isn’t just about divorce.  In recent years, more couples have decided to forego the formality of marriage and begin families without formalization of their union.  For married couples divorcing, for unmarried couples seeking to establish child support and timesharing rights for children, and for persons who have already been through court proceedings but need enforcement or modification, the legal system can be daunting.  In addition to the sometimes-complicated legal requirements, these types of matters may be frightening and emotionally overwhelming.  If you are unsure about how to proceed, if you need an advocate, or you just need the benefit of guidance from an experienced attorney, we are ready to assist.

Criminal Law

While we have tremendous respect for law enforcement officers and other first responders, the fact is that in making the initial assessment at a crime scene, law enforcement often gets it wrong.  This can happen for a number of reasons.  It’s undeniable that many times the real “bad guy” in a crime is skilled at manipulating the blame onto another person.  Sometimes the emotion of the situation clouds the recollection of the witnesses.  Other times law enforcement officers simply overlook key facts, because at the end of the day, they too are human.    If you are arrested, detained, or accused of a crime, you should be represented by an attorney at every phase, from interview to trial.

Business and Contract Law

Business law disputes can be costly, whether they result in litigation or simply disruption to a commercial enterprise.  An experienced attorney can provide counsel to help avoid future legal issues.  A good, clear contract helps businesses maintain effective working relationships with customers, vendors, and other businesses.  If your business is incorporated and it is sued, even if it’s a small business, the law many not let you represent yourself.  Whether you’re contemplating starting a business, or whether your business has been sued or needs to bring a lawsuit, the money you spend on a lawyer may be the best investment you ever make.

Bar & Administrative Hearings

Many attorneys handle standard civil and criminal matters.  Administrative matters that are governed by specialized rules require an experienced attorney who can navigate that unique set of requirements and regulations.  We regularly handle Florida Board of Bar Examiner hearings of all types, as well as attorney disciplinary matters and a variety of administrative hearings before boards and agencies.
