The Guys You See on TV Are the Real Deal at Farah and Farah
I love the fact that Farah and Farah is family owned. In fact, my very first interview with the firm was with Chuck and Eddie. So you get this family firm atmosphere even though we have literally hundreds of legal professionals across 15 offices. This means the guys you see on the commercials—that’s really them. When I’ve been knee-deep in a tough case and came in to work on the weekend, I’ve been blown away to see Chuck and Eddie in there too working right alongside us to get the case to the finish line.
This level of dedication from the very top down creates such a difference in the end for the client. We are a deeply committed team who utilizes our collective strengths to pull together and get the best results possible for our clients.
People Are Up Against a Lot After an Auto Accident
I’ve worked both for big insurance companies on the defense, as well as victims on the plaintiff side so I know just how much the average person is unfortunately up against. The Florida legal system can be notoriously slow and the deck is stacked against people who are injured through no fault of their own.
Insurance companies will underpay, delay, or outright deny a claim that they hold a legal responsibility to pay a fair amount on. By leveraging my experience on both sides of the courtroom, I’m able to advance my clients personal injury case as efficiently as possible while seeking the maximum amount allowed by Florida law.
As an active member of the Florida Justice Association’s Auto Insurance Committee, I have participated in lobbying efforts to help Florida accident victims. The Committee looks at new bills coming out and discusses how they may affect future cases so that we’re always well ahead of any changes.
What it Takes to Get the Best Results For a Personal Injury Case
One of the hardest and also most rewarding cases of my career involved a hit and run trucking accident that took six years to finally settle through litigation. A father of five, my client was struck on the road by a semi truck and left to die as the perpetrators fled the scene. With broken bones and scores of internal injuries, my client would spend months in the hospital recovering.
With limited initial evidence, several other law firms passed on the case and the trucking insurance company denied all responsibility. In fact, it took a full two years to even track down the truckers who were responsible but diligence pays off and we were able to gather the necessary evidence.
Getting the best results for our clients means pursuing every possible avenue, which requires resources. That’s why having so many different resources at our disposal at Farah and Farah is crucial to our many successes. As a result of our efforts, my team and I took what was a $0 offer from the insurance company all the way to a six figure settlement for our client’s case.
What it Means to Be an Injury Attorney in Jacksonville
Jacksonville is a special place and I’m proud to call it my home. The legal process can be tough but I love solving complex problems and helping area victims when they need an experienced advocate. Whether they are in Duval, Nassau, St. Johns, or Clay, talking to people, helping them understand what’s going on and where they are in the process—these are among my greatest strengths as a personal injury attorney.
Living in Atlantic Beach, if I’m not at the Farah and Farah Jacksonville office, you’ll most likely find me and my wife enjoying some down time at the beach with our two French Bulldogs, Jackson and Bennett. If it happens to be college football season, you can bet I’ll be cheering on my alma mater, the FSU Seminoles.
