WE’RE MAKING LAW
As the scandal involving sexual abuse by clergy became public, we brought one of the first clergy abuse cases that went all the way to the Florida Supreme Court. We made ground-breaking law that established a victim’s right to sue religious institutions for sexual abuse. That case, Malicki v. Doe, 814 So.2d 347 (Fla. 2002), ultimately resulted one of the highest settlements ever paid by the church in Miami. And we took on a virtual adoption case and appeal for a family who was about to lose their rightful inheritance. Our efforts in In Re: Estate of Musil v. Frazier, 965 So.2d 1157 (Fla. 2d DCA 2007), ultimately resulted in the recovery of over $1 Million Dollars for the family of the victim.
We are known for our discreet representation of many high-profile businesses, entrepreneurs, public figures, lawyers, judges and sports professionals. When tact and diplomacy are of paramount concern, you can count on us.
