STATE LAWS VARY
The Firm’s lawyers are licensed to practice law only within the states of Florida and Georgia, but the Firm has relationships with lawyers throughout the United States. The Firm may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country who form relationships with the Firm, and are experienced in handling such cases. The Firm may also undertake legal representation in certain cases, and will affiliate with other legal counsel located throughout the country to provide legal representation.
The laws of each jurisdiction are different. This web site contains general information that applies only in some circumstances or only in some states. This web site also contains information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state, inany particular state, or in any particular situation.
Statutes of Limitations are especially important. Every jurisdiction has laws called the “statute of limitations,” which set a deadline to file a lawsuit. That means that a lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries. Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other jurisdictions may be longer or shorter. Insurance policies, particularly homeowners’ insurance, may require that suit be filed within one year of a loss. Some states allow claims against government agencies, but require a written notice very soon after the accident, perhaps within three months. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.

We welcome comments about our compliance with the applicable rules and will update the site as warranted, upon learning of any new or different requirements.
