Practice Areas

Tom’s law practice is a “civil trial practice” which means that he handles the dispute and resolution of virtually any type of matter that is resolved in a state or a federal court, except criminal law and family law matters.

Tom demands a jury trial in almost every case he files.

This is not only because a jury trial is a guaranteed right under the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article 1, § 22 of the Florida Constitution, but Tom believes 6 people on a jury (Florida state court) or 6 to 12 people on a jury (federal court) have a better chance of reaching the right result that one judge who – while skilled in the law – is handling hundreds of other cases on his or her docket and may not be able to give your case the attention it deserves.
