  4. How much is my case worth?

    At the earliest stages of a case, it is almost impossible to give a reasonable estimate of the value of a case, but our experience can help us provide some information and guidance on the potential value of your case if it develops in a particular way.

  5. I can’t afford a lawyer, how are you paid?

    We operate strictly on a contingency fee basis. We pay all case costs and if there is no recovery, there are no fees or costs to you. If there is a recovery, our fees and case costs are paid from those proceeds. You never pay out of pocket for anything we do.

  7. What is mediation?

    Mediation is a settlement conference where parties try to settle their claims to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation and trial. It can be voluntary or court ordered. In Florida, courts order all cases to mediation before they are tried to a jury, because most cases settled at, or shortly after, mediation. However, many cases do not settle at mediation and must be tried.

  8. What is a deposition?

    A deposition is a series of questions and answers taken under oath in the presence of a court reporter. Once a case is filed, both sides can depose witnesses and other parties. This allows the facts underlying a case to become known and helps move cases toward resolution.
