We are proud of the case law we have made since 1988, some citations for which appear below. The Florida Bar requires us to notify those who visit this page that the following information on cases in which we have been involved is by no means a testimonial nor intended to be an exhaustive list. Like all lawyers, we have won some and we have lost some. The information below refers to events and results documented by the Courts and has not been reviewed or approved by The Florida Bar. Each individual's situation may differ from past cases or results, so no one should interpret our past cases or results as examples of what will or will not happen in their particular circumstances. Each case and issue must be reviewed on its own merits.

The cases cited above, which we fought hard and won, show our dedication to our clients and the law. In the last case, which was personal to us, we were determined to clear our name and not let partisan politics control. As a result, the State of Florida was ordered to pay our costs, and did pay our costs, for pursuing the matter.
