As a board-certified civil trial lawyer Tom has the experience and the expertise to handle your case from start to finish, up to and including trial, in any type of civil action where one is suing, or being sued, for money damages and/or injunctive relief. Such actions include but are not limited to business disputes; car accidents; denials of insurance coverage; claims against someone’s will or trust; and civil rights actions.
Just 1% of Florida's 95,000 lawyers are board-certified in civil trial law. With this many lawyers practicing in the State of Florida, serious consideration should be made to hiring one who is board-certified. While any lawyer can advertise on television, on the Internet, or on a billboard, not all lawyers are board-certified.
In addition to being board-certified Tom has received an "AV" pre-eminent rating - the highest rating available - from Martindale-Hubbell, the nation's oldest guide to the legal profession for legal ability and ethical standards.
