About Us
For almost thirty years, the attorneys of the firm have provided efficient and thorough legal representation to businesses, individuals and insurers. We have been involved in complex litigation and trials in both state and federal courts. We are dedicated to achieving a fair and just result for our clients, without unnecessary expenditure of time and costs.

From our many years of experience working with bodily injury claims, we are equipped to thoroughly analyze the medical aspects of those claims. We are also experienced in the assessment of technical issues arising from automobile, trucking and aviation accidents and from product liability and construction claims. The firm has ready access to nationally known expert consultants to assist with technical issues, and to present testimony on those issues at trial.

Our main office is centrally located in Daytona Beach, and from there we can quickly respond to the needs of clients throughout Florida. The firm was an early adopter of advanced technology to allow current and timely electronic communication and case updates to its clients, and the electronic presentation of documents and exhibits at trial.

Martindale-Hubbell has rated us as "AV" (the highest rating achievable).
