Have you ever been sworn in?  To tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?  This is done when your deposition starts, and is  one of the most important steps in a law suit.  The Plaintiff is given the chance to tell the Defense attorney his/her story.  This is done under oath,…

There are a lot of attorneys in Florida.  According to the Florida Bar there are more than 90,000 of them  in Florida.  How do you know which one to hire for an accident injury case? The Bar association has leveled the playing field for you to a certain degree. It has passed rules which tell…

Drunk drivers cause a lot of accidents with injuries and death.  What are the steps taken by the criminal justice system to make them pay? Just because you were in a wreck does not automatically mean there will be DUI charges. If you have been the victim of a drunk driver you should expect to have…

Can you talk to your lawyer?  This is a simple question.  Some of my clients who have unfortunately been in multiple accidents have used other law firms on other cases before hiring me.  In one such case,  a new client came to my office and when we sat down to meet with each other the…

Let’s be honest with each other.  Clients do not know how good or bad their case is.  All they really know is what their lawyer tells them, and how hard their lawyer appears to be working for them. Personal injury lawyers compete for clients and sometimes the ones who hold out the highest promises get…

Most cases settle without going to court.  If you are afraid of “going to court” you can make that crystal clear to your attorney and he will honor your request, Most of the time.  Why can’t  he guarantee you that you won’t go to court? If you have the kind of case that is under…
