Student Loan Law
With student loan debt topping the $1 trillion dollar mark in the United States, student loan borrowers have a colossal need for legal assistance. However, there are few attorneys out there who are providing expert legal services regarding this subject matter. Most borrowers are lost when it comes to properly managing their student loans and are often misguided by the debt settlement companies out there which provide false and misleading information. A student loan attorney has the tools, knowledge, and experience to properly advise a borrower regarding their loans and advise them regarding the multiple options that are available to them which the servicers fail to provide. At our firm we can analyze your student loan situation and provide you with the correct information for you to make a decision on how you would like us to proceed in handling your case. Each borrower’s situation is thoroughly reviewed on a case-by-case basis. For your student loan scenario, please complete the Contact Us form or call us at 305-798-4111 to analyze your case.
Property Damage Claims
Property damage claims often result from natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and tropical storms. Significant damage can result to your homes, commercial properties, condominiums, and/or personal property. The damages can range from both exterior to interior damages to include, but are not limited to fences, roofs, sheds, windows, awnings, doors, ceilings, walls, floors, carpets, furniture, fixtures, electronics, etc. This can also make your home temporarily uninhabitable. However, you ultimately file claims with your flood or windstorm insurance company and many of the claims are denied or grossly underpaid.
Our firm has represented hundreds of homeowners, commercial property owners, and condominium associations against their insurance companies to fight for adequate compensation for their damages. Some insurance companies may undervalue the amount of the claim, conduct inadequate investigation, or unreasonably delay handling your claim which can result in bad faith. If you are a homeowner, commercial property owner, or condominium association seeking help with an insurance claim, our firm would be happy to assist. Also, if you are a public adjuster who needs legal assistance with a client’s claim, you will need a qualified, experienced attorney to represent your client. Our goal will be to maximize your recovery by utilizing an army of experts such as attorneys, licensed general contractors, engineers, and/or other public adjusters who are well versed in the insurance industry and also know the tricks of the trade.

Many workers in Florida are injured on the job every day. After reporting their injury to their employer, they are then placed in the process of collecting workers’ compensation benefits. The employer, through their worker’s compensation carrier, is responsible for providing the injured worker with two main benefits: lost wages and medical care. This obligation to provide these benefits for the injured worker exists, no matter whose fault the accident is. Unfortunately however, there are companies and insurance carriers that are not providing the entitled benefits as they should be. Oftentimes they will deny or minimize the payments they make toward the claim to keep money in their pockets. Moreover, they may also try to argue that your injuries were caused by something outside of the workplace or that your injuries are not as severe as you say they are. This often leaves honest, hardworking people out in the cold with few options to make ends meet.
Our firm has successfully represented several hundred employee/claimants against their employer/carriers. The scope of our representation has covered the initial claim, the ensuing litigation, and the final hearing in front of the Judge of Compensation Claims.

In the context of a civil case pending in court, Mediation is a process in which a neutral mediator leads a conference meeting in which the attorneys and the parties to the litigation meet to analyze both sides’ positions and negotiate the resolution of the case. The mediator’s rule is that of a neutral facilitator of the process. The mediator does not decide the case or force a settlement. The outcome of the case is controlled by the parties. The parties can choose to either negotiate an agreed settlement or not agree and an impasse shall occur.
Mediation is an informal, collaborative, and non-adversarial process whereby a mediator’s goal is to help disputing parties communicate in hopes to reach the ultimate goal of a mutually agreeable settlement.
