Civil Litigation

Civil litigation may be necessary when you and another party have a dispute and can't seem to reach a mutual agreement. In these types of situations, where the parties fail to come to an understanding with another, they may opt to just take the issue to court where a judge (and sometimes a jury) can decide the outcome. If the situation seems unresolvable, hiring a civil litigator — also known as a civil trial lawyer — is an ideal strategy. While you could represent yourself, there may be aspects of the law of which you're generally unaware that can help or harm your case. By getting an experienced trial lawyer on your side, you can have confidence in your game plan because the person creating the strategy is a seasoned professional. 

I started practicing law in 1986 after earning my Juris Doctor from St. John's School of Law. Since graduating, I've been admitted to several State and U.S. District Courts in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. You can learn more about my background on my attorney profile. I have the passion, education, and skills to help you with your case — I also have the support from judges and other attorneys that speak to my credibility and capability as recognized by the Florida Bar.

Don’t face this alone.
