I KNOW YOUR PAIN - I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT

"I know what you're going through because I've been on both sides of the desk – as a lawyer and as a client. In May of 1974 at the intersection of US 41 and Cortez Road in Bradenton, a car ran a red light and hit me broadside. Unfortunately, I was riding a motorcycle. I lost the big toe on my right foot, and my ankle was fused. I endured over a dozen surgeries and was in a cast for over a year. I know something about pain and suffering. I felt the insurance company was less than fair with me, and I have made it my life's mission to protect others from the unfair tactics used by insurance companies."

What Juries Don't Know

This is why we consider it our duty to make our clients as familiar with the legal system as possible and establish reasonable expectations of how their trials may be influenced by a typical jury.
