One thing I love about our firm is that we are willing to, and frequently enjoy, taking on more challenging cases. By “more difficult” I mean liability isn’t quite as clear as we would like for it to be.  Don’t get me wrong: There is a big difference between a meritless claim and a claim […]

What a great time to be alive, amirite? Nothing like a little pandemic to spice things up. Regardless of your political stance on the subject, things for the past year and a half have, well, truly sucked. From babies to seniors, students to business owners, we have all had to make adjustments to how we […]

“Sue sells seashells by the seashore, but I stepped on one of Sue’s shells so I want to sue.” That’s how the tongue twister goes, right? If you’ve caught the television commercial we produced about the shockingly LOW number of Florida civil claims that actually end up going to jury trial — you know, a […]

Not long ago I wrote a blog post about the value of “but it’s not fair” damages. To recap, just, no. There is no jury instruction on, or inherent value to your case in, an “it’s not fair” argument, where there is no one to assume liability. I am compassionate and empathetic and will hold hands […]

I rarely like to blog about actual laws. Mostly because it can get monotonous, but also because I prefer to muse about other things. That said, I think it important to do a quick blog about the fact that Governor DeSantis recently vetoed a bill that had passed through Florida’s legislative bodies. The bill would […]

It’s a fairly common scenario: You’re in an auto accident and don’t particularly want to call your local 1-800-let-us-refer-you-to-a-doctor hotline because, well, you have your own doctor! (Please understand that this blog isn’t a commentary about, or a reflection of my opinion about, referral hotlines.) Instead, it is an attempt at addressing why, exactly, your […]

I’m not a feminist, but …

What is a feminist? Feminist is defined as “someone advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.” Why do I ask this? I love creating blogs because they are mostly an opportunity for me to muse poetically (or maybe not so much) about whatever random thought comes to mind. […]

“…But it’s a no-fault state!” If I had a dime for every time I heard these words I’d be living in Bora Bora in a hut perched precariously above the ocean, taking periodic swims with my pet shark, Razor Ralph.  Why, oh why, didn’t I start collecting those dimes? I digress.  Yes. Florida is a […]

Do you really know your own medical history? I know you think I can’t be seriously asking that question because of course, you do … right? Personal injury cases involve past and present medical records Have you ever really inspected a diamond? What gives it that magical sparkle is all of the individual facets. Each […]

Be Like Elsa. Let it Go.

I know. Pop culture references get old – but this is a good one. Have you ever heard someone (usually a judge) refer to an attorney as “Counselor?” Yeah, me too. Until I got past my early, panicky years as a practicing attorney I didn’t realize how accurate that reference really is. Attorneys wear many […]
