I am the founder and sole research attorney at Lawyers Research Group. I personally perform all legal research and writing work for the company, and I am licensed and experienced Florida attorney.
Prior to forming Lawyers Research Group, I practiced civil litigation in Miami for over seven years. I am a graduate of the University of Miami School of Law and the University of Central Florida, with honors.
During my years in practice, I was responsible for the drafting and preparation of appellate briefs, petitions for writ, trial memoranda, legal research memoranda, summary judgment motions and responses, as well as all other drafting and research work for a boutique law firm in Miami. I have drafted countless briefs on issues ranging from tort claims, family law, premises liability, insurance law (including coverage and bad-faith actions), motor-carrier regulations, criminal law, and commercial contractual disputes.
While in practice, I represented a diverse group of clients and dealt with issues ranging from international business disputes to catastrophic personal injury claims. I represented plaintiffs in wrongful death actions, title insurance carriers in real estate disputes, spouses in high-asset dissolution of marriage proceedings, and corporate entities in complex commercial litigation. Notable cases include a wrongful death action filed against the driver, the owner and the motor carrier of a tractor-trailer that struck and killed another motorist. That case included seven defendants and four insurance carriers, which all filed separate declaratory relief actions disputing coverage. After four years of highly contentious litigation, the case settled on the eve of trial for seven figures.
I also have extensive experience in commercial litigation, and was directly involved in obtaining (and collecting) a multi-million dollar judgment in an international business dispute involving an exclusive marketing and sales agreement. Other notable cases while in practice include contested dissolution of marriage proceedings involving high net-worth clients. During my time in practice, I also represented several well-known real estate developers in the South Florida area and I have considerable experience in commercial and real estate disputes.
Since starting Lawyers Research Group, my level of expertise has expanded considerably. Researching complex legal issues on a full-time basis will have that effect. During the past 18 months, I have drafted successful briefs before the United States Third, Fifth and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeal, and I have now prepared two petitions for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. In recent years I have also developed close working relationships with several well respected criminal defense lawyers, and I have drafted successful appeals and post-conviction review motions on their behalf.
In addition to being a member of the Florida Bar, I am a member of the Legal Writing Institute and Scribes – The American Society of Legal Writers. I currently reside in West Palm Beach, Florida with my wife and daughter.
