How did you build a successful practice?
It requires the innate ability to be personable with others and assist them by offering them advice on their situations, all without the expectation of receiving compensation or a retainer for that advice. Spending twenty minutes to a half hour with someone seeking counsel can mean the world to them, and even if they do not hire you right then and there, you will build a rapport and trust with the individual and or business so when they do require legal advocacy, you are the first person they call. At the same time, being able to generate confidence of your abilities with another person is only have the battle, it is the actions you take when you are hired to obtain the results the client is looking for that means the most. Anyone can get their "foot in the door" and convince a prospective client that they can help with their issue or problem. What sets attorneys apart are the ones that actually come through once they are retained. Our firm is very successful due to the results that we are able to achieve on behalf of our clients. We always make our attorneys available to our clients, and do not restrict them to our staff. More importantly, we assign two attorneys to each matter to ensure that the client receives the level of service they can expect from a firm that would cost ten times more than our firm. The results you acquire for clients is what guarantees referrals from their friends, and for every client you do well for in your advocacy, ten more people hear about your firm.
What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Honesty, integrity and capacity. Honesty that the attorney does not promise something that they could not possibly achieve on behalf of the client. Integrity that the attorney can achieve the results that they promise, which should be nothing more than a promise to advocate to the best of that attorney's ability, and integrity that the attorney maintains the experience and knowledge to effectively advocate for the client. If the attorney is not experienced in a particular area of law, accepting the client's money for the benefit of the cash flow at the detriment of lacking the experience to advocate in that area of law is a violation of that client's trust and a compromise of the attorney's integrity. Most clients believe that an attorney knows all areas of law, but law is like medicine in that an attorney who practices personal injury does not necessarily know how to effectively practice family law. Similarly, a person would not seek medical attention for neck pain from a podiatrist, foot doctor. Capacity is the attorney’s ability to perform their duties on behalf of their clients. If an attorney is a member of a small practice, or a solo practitioner, and incapable of financing a case on a contingency due to the significant expense necessary for the costs, yet accepts the matter regardless due to the sheer value of the claim, then the client's matter in itself will be compromised. Clients should not only evaluate the attorney's ability, but the capacity of the firm for which the attorney is employed, particularly on a contingency matter. If the law firm does not have the financial capacity to fund a case that will require significant cost expenditures, the matter will innately be handicapped to the attorney's ability to fund the costs.
What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We generally request that all documentation, contracts, records, and correspondences be sent for review in preparation of the consultation, so that we are fully aware of the client's situation in advance to the phone consult. We then request that the client provide a factual account of the matter connecting all of the documentation and information provided. We can provide the same information to the client over the phone that we can in person, and many of our matters are retained through phone consultations due to geographical restraints prohibiting in person appointments at the firm's locations.
What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
We are a mid-sized firm with over 15 attorneys working in various capacities from associates to "of counsel". Most importantly, each of these attorneys concentrate their practice in a very specific area of law offering a diversification of services available by the law firm. We never accept a matter that we lack experience to handle, and should that situation arise, we have a plethora of local and long distance law firms that we can refer the matter to ensure that the client receives the highest caliber of service from their counsel. As we cannot guarantee the outcome of any case, I am reluctant to offer results, as that places any attorney into an ethical dilemma should it result in some sort of expectation by means of presenting past results to future clients. Notwithstanding, our attorneys are very comprehensive and capable of spotting the issues and aggressively advocating on behalf of each client. We are selective with our offerings to ensure that our attorneys are not inundated with so many matters that they are incapable of attending to all client matters assigned. We also assist clients that do not have the means to pay for counsel in various manners, as everyone should have the benefit of legal counsel when they need an advocate.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The results. There is nothing more satisfying than taking a client’s matter to closure. When the client is happy with the result, it makes me happy, knowing that all legal matters arise when situations are in dire straits. When we successfully bring a matter to its conclusion it is a feeling of accomplishment when the client is pleased with the result.
What are your other interests in addition to law?
I am an avid automobile enthusiast. I enjoy driving my cars on road courses, and when I have the time, I frequent Palm Beach International Raceway to drive my cars in turn on the 3.1 mile road course. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, and like to play city building type games on the computer that require thought and preparation over and above planting myself in front of a television. I happy to be a very avid fitness enthusiast. I exercise three (3) times per week during the lunch hours, and authored a book published by a division of Penguin Publishing and available in over 25,000 bookstores online that offers education to other laypeople, like myself, about exercise, diet and supplements. The book is titled, "The Layperson's Guide to Exercise, Diet and Supplements", and is available in over 25,000 bookstores; for more information about the publication you can visit, www.thelaypersonsguide.com and www.facebook.com/thelaypersonsguide.
Are you involved in your community?
I assist a lot of people in the community with legal advice, counsel and representation. The firm is part of a few community based and local associations, but our firm always assist people who contact us with issues that may not be able to afford legal counsel by the traditional payment offerings. Boca Raton is a very affluent area, so there is not much in outreach community centers, but we do assist clients that could otherwise not afford to pay for legal counsel with situations that they may have that could possibly inpact their residential status or with similar situations.

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Paddy McGees, now defunct restaurant located on Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, was charged with three citations for noise violations. They failed to appear at the hearing and were levied high fines for each of the three charges. They retained my firm to dispute the charges and fines. Our lawyers work together on these matters, and Tina El Fadel prepared the appellate brief filed with the Circuit Court of Palm Beach, County. The Court found that the noise violation statute violates constitutional law for vagueness as to what constitutes noise, due to the high level of subjective discretion. As a result, the statute was found unconstitutional forcing the city to rewrite and reenact a wholly new statute to define what constitutes a noise violation.
