SENSE OF FULFILLMENT FROM PERSONAL INJURY CASES
I have found the greatest fulfillment in personal injury trial practice. I have been Board Certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer since 1988, and I’ve been doing this since 1977 and I have had a lot of important experiences as a trial lawyer in business litigation and in general litigation.
I have always felt that a lawyer, whether a transactional lawyer or a trial lawyer, cannot spend his or her time just in the law office or just in the courtroom. It’s fundamentally important for a lawyer to be involved in community service, to set a good example and to project to the general public that lawyers are not only important professionals in our society but do great things for their communities.
I had the great good fortune to go to Davidson College as an undergraduate where I majored in English Literature and minored in Political Science. I had a year – my junior year, I spent in Washington studying government and, after that, I graduated from Davidson and went to the University of Florida Law School.
GREW UP IN JACKSONVILLE
Well, I am a Jacksonville boy and my parents were also born and raised here in Jacksonville. I was born in 1951 at Riverside Hospital on the west side of the St. Johns River, had a wonderful childhood, went to Stockton Elementary, Lakeshore Junior High and Robert E. Lee where I was President of the student body.
WHY REFER CASES TO SA
I’d like to begin answering the question about why other lawyers might consider referring cases to me by mentioning that I had the great fortune of landing a job with the grate Frates, Floyd, Pierson, Stewart, Richman, Greer firm in Miami, which was one of the greatest if not the greatest trial firms in the Southeast in the 1960’s and 70’s.

If you feel that your company has been affected by an unlawful proceed fixing scheme, please give me a call.
SHOULD I MONITOR MY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS IF I FILE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT?
You should always be mindful of what you post in your social media accounts but especially if you have a pending legal claim. Before the internet age, insurance companies would hire private investigators to try to film you doing something that they could construe against you in your case.
