Only pay if you win!

 direct communications with your lawyer

I get dirty.

 

You can't win a case sitting at a desk. I get out in the field and personally talk to the witnesses and perform inspections so that critical evidence is not overlooked.

Board Certified.

Since 2007, I have maintained board certification. Less than 5% of Florida lawyers are board certified and less than 45 are certified in Aviation Law. This requires additional advocacy, testing and educational requirements.
