personal injury attorney Siesta Key

I’ve shared a glimpse at the background of Law Powered By Women®. But as with all good things, we’ve evolved. Christy and I always planned that as our practice grew, we would broaden the firm’s horizon.  As it happened, we did grow and thrive. And so a couple of years ago, we embarked on our […]

We didn’t start out as Law Powered By Women®. In fact, we serendipitously fell into it. It was about a year after Christy and I hung our shingle as Luhrsen Goldberg. We paused to consider that perhaps all those folks coincidentally marveling about how amazing it was that we were a female-run law firm might […]

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 […]

It’s happened. You were in a car accident. You have an injury. It wasn’t your fault, but it also wasn’t catastrophic.  You decline treatment by the paramedics and skip the ambulance ride. A few hours later, though, your neck starts to bother you. Then your shoulder starts to ache, too.  The nagging injury pain doesn’t […]

“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 […]

After foot surgery this spring, I had to lay off my normal exercise “routine.” While I recovered, I turned to brisk walking instead. (Having just caught some of the Olympic 50km racewalkers — who can average a 6-7 minutes per mile pace — I can’t honestly call what I do speed walking, even if I […]

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. […]

For as long as there have been cars, there have been distracted drivers. Traditionally, it involved things like a crying baby in the back seat, spilled coffee, fiddling with the radio, or putting on finishing makeup touches. Distracted driving is simply something that diverts the driver’s attention from his or her primary focus. While on […]
