My Big Case Against Walt Disney World

“What? You sued Disney?!?” I wonder when I’m asked that if it’s a judgment against suing “the happiest place on Earth”, or if it’s more of wonderment for taking on the Goliath of Florida. For most people, it’s a little bit of both. At my old law firm we had a client with a legitimate claim against Disney World for injuries sustained at Magic Kingdom. I was given the task of finding an Orlando law firm that we could refer the client to since we’re Read More +

Yes, Defective Airbags Are Still Being Sold in New Cars

A Very Serious Boat Crash

It’s not every day in an injury lawyer’s career that he is gifted with such a perfect, but gasp-inducing case. I’ve had a number of vessel crash cases in my office over the years, but they all paled in comparison to the case of “Alice and Mel Jones”. The names and identifiable specifics have been changed even though my clients have agreed to this article, but the incident and the injuries are all factual. The Joneses are early retirees in their 60s. Mel is now Read More +
