Having a past doesn’t mean you can’t pursue a claim. But honesty is key. I meet with a lot of clients, or potential clients, who are concerned about making a very valid, worthy injury claim for fear of someone digging into their pasts. This could mean uncovering a criminal history, a medical history, a mental […]

We all know that honorary legal degrees are possessed by every single person on the planet, right?  I get it all of the time from potential clients: “My mom’s friend’s sister told me this is worth $8 million.” Or “My friend was in a car crash and got $400k.” Loss, sorrow … but not necessarily […]

The little calendar notification that my blog was due recently caught me during a rant. I had just learned about some let’s say unscrupulous behavior in which certain colleagues are engaging. Since I wasn’t finished being annoyed when the notification popped up, I figured, hey, why not just go with it?  Put your seatbelts on, […]

There’s definitely a stereotype about personal injury attorneys. To that end, I decided a long time ago that I’ll never be as financially abundant as many injury litigation attorneys. I also realized I am A-OK with that. Some of the stuff I see and hear about makes me cringe, and, frankly, I frequently ask myself […]

I’m not sure if there is something in the air or if this is the newest insurance company scheme. Lately, we have had a number of calls from hopeful new clients saying something like, “Well, I signed some document and took a check, but I’m still hurt.”  Oh boy. We always know this is going […]

Two Weeks’ Notice. Yep, I named my blog post after a poorly rated 2002 Sandra Bullock/Hugh Grant film. (Except that I fixed the grammatical error in the original title by adding the appropriate apostrophe.)  Sadly, the real-life implication of the 14-day rule as enacted by Florida’s Legislature in the No-Fault Act is just as bad […]

Know those attorneys who are all about going to trial? How many cases they’ve tried? How many times they’ve been in the courtroom?  The majority of cases don’t go to trial. So is it critical to have an attorney that boasts of nothing else than their trial experience? It’s important to be well-rounded I’ll bet, […]

Did you know that even if you protect yourself by purchasing uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM) coverage on your auto policy, you aren’t automatically entitled to collect that coverage? There are different options for potential recovery from injuries resulting from a car crash. However, each one of them is specific to the facts and circumstances of your […]

We’ve all lived, and learned, that the good old adage “no good deed goes unpunished” seems to hold true nine times out of 10.  Both professionally and in my personal life, I’ve learned this lesson the hard way. Is everything disputable? Some would say our society has become overly litigious. I suppose I’m not a […]
