Our attorneys have successfully litigated hundreds of cases over the past 26 years in the many federal and state courts throughout Florida.  We routinely appear in court to aggressively advocate our clients’ interests.  As a result of our vast experience, we are highly familiar with critical strategies that win lawsuits.  Our unique insight into both the Bar and the judiciary, bolstered by our Big Law experience and thorough knowledge of Florida and federal law, defines our strength and legal superiority.

We also understand and appreciate the financial toll that litigation may take on individuals and businesses desirous of enforcing their legal rights.  We carefully and regularly monitor the time we spend performing legal tasks and work together with our clients to arrive at an appropriate and mutually-agreeable budget.  Where settlement is recommended, we are not afraid to recommend it.  Our attorneys strive only for great results, not for great billable hours.

But don’t take our word for it.  Visit the representative cases page of our website and ask us about our successes.  We would be very happy to tell you about them.
