Professional Liability

Professional liability lawsuits are no longer limited to doctors, lawyers and accountants. In fact, if you or your company engages in any occupation or service that requires specialized training or education, the risk of lawsuits can be a very real threat to you and your organization.

We help professionals of all kinds navigate today's increasingly litigious society in a proactive manner.

Litigation Philosophy

The overriding goal is to minimize risk exposure for our clients. When litigation does arise, we work tirelessly to manage legal costs wherever possible. We work closely with our clients at the outset of a matter to assess the merits of each particular case and determine a preferred defense strategy.

If it is in our client's best interest, we encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to resolve a particular conflict. Through ADR techniques, the saving of time and money can be substantial.

When a case does go to trial, clients benefit from our extensive experience in both jury and non-jury trial experience, as well as appeals, not only in Florida courts, but also throughout the United Sates. We have more than 50 years of experience in all aspects of litigation and dispute resolution, from third party general liability defense to sophisticated products and professional liability defense, including first party coverage matters. This broad base of experience is a significant benefit to any professional who finds him or herself the defendant in a professional liability lawsuit.
