Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
In 2015, I sued a finance company for civil theft after it wrongfully repossessed my client's mobile home. I argued that the finance company's egregious conduct met the standard for punitive damages, and obtained damages equal to three times the value of the stolen property for my client. It felt great that I was able to hold a big corporation accountable for misconduct and to help my client rebuild her life.

How did you build a successful practice?
I built a successful practice one client at a time. By devoting care and diligence to each case, I have built a reputation for vigorous and effective representation in the areas of personal injury, insurance claims, and foreclosure defense.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for a lawyer who is smart and accessible. A good lawyer should work to achieve his client's goals, and when it is not possible, provide the client with the best alternative solutions to his problem.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
I don't think that local knowledge per se is crucial to the success of a case. The discovery and litigation processes are easier, however, when one knows the local courts and judges.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
In the free initial phone consultation, I listen to the client's case and tell them how my services might assist them. I advise them as to all options that they might pursue to achieve their goal, including non-legal ones. I also provide them an estimate of the costs and fees involved in providing legal representation. At the end of the free consultation, the client and I should know whether we are a good match.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
To ensure an accurate assessment of your case, it is important that you provide me the relevant facts and documents of your case at or prior to the free consultation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
What distinguishes me as an attorney is that I am focused on helping my clients succeed. I am willing to go the extra mile to get the best settlement for my clients, and I think outside the box to attain the best results when confronted with obstacles.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding part of being a lawyer for me is when I know that I have made a positive difference in the life of a client.

  • Big Changes May Be In Store For Florida's Insurance Industry

    Repeal of Mandatory PIP (personal injury protection insurance): Several Florida legislators, including Senator Jeff Brandeis (Republican, St. Petersburg) are pushing for a repeal of mandatory PIP. Their support for changing the system is motivated by a rising tide of fraudulent personal injury protection insurance claims around the state. The proponents of the repeal advocate replacing it with a system in which injured drivers would look only to the at-fault driver’s bodily injury insurance policy (and his personal assets, if necessary) for reimbursement of their injury-related costs. They believe that a consumer would save on auto insurance premiums if he were not required to buy PIP, but property damage and bodily injury liability coverages (that would cover other drivers and their passengers) instead.

    I am not sure this repeal is the panacea that its advocates claim. It is probable that the cost of bodily injury liability insurance will climb if the repeal is enacted. Furthermore, I doubt that the repeal will reduce auto insurance fraud, since criminals could shift tactics, and purchase and claim against each other’s bodily injury liability policies. The repeal would likely help the bottom-line of attorneys who specialize in personal injury cases, as more people would use the court system to compel payment for treating their injuries rather than going to their own insurance companies.

    II. Allow patients to sue HMOs for declining coverage of treatments recommended by their doctors in bad faith: SB 262, sponsored by Greg Steube (Republican, Sarasota) would allow patients to sue health insurance corporations for denials of coverage that affects treatment. Current law exempts HMOs from liability for medical providers’ treatment decisions.

    I believe this law would help improve the quality of health care and allow medical professionals to render appropriate care to their patients. Over the last several decades HMOs have become the gatekeepers to health care for most patients. They have rationed health care for their patients by restricting coverage to what they consider “medically necessary.” Unfortunately, There are no guidelines for determining what treatments are medically necessary, and insurers’ medical decisions are often motivated by economic considerations. The proposed law would give patients the ability to challenge arbitrary denials of treatment and deter HMOs from acting in bad faith.
