AREAS OF LAW

Workers’ Compensation Defense
The law firm is widely considered as one of the premier workers’ compensation firm in the State of
Florida. Its members are regularly involved in defending the most complex of cases at mediation,
trial and appellate levels. Additionally, many of the members of the law firm participate in various
educational programs designed to further the skills of lawyers and clients alike. The law firm
believes in providing that extra commitment to its clients and to its profession.


The senior partner, Steve Rissman, is one of the state’s most respected workers’ compensation
lawyers. The tradition of excellence started by Steve has continued over nearly 40 years as the firm
continues to be a leader in the defense of workers’ compensation claims.




Liability Defense
The firm is extensively involved in the defense of civil litigation matters in state and federal courts
at both the trial and appellate levels. It represents corporations, self-insured employers and insurers
and their insureds in all types of personal injury, wrongful death and tort cases. The firm prides
itself on the significant trial experience of its attorneys. The firms’ attorneys have tried over 1,200
jury trials to conclusion. This experience provides two demonstrable benefits to its clients. First, the
opposition knows that the firm will take cases to trial and win. Second, the fact that the opposition
knows the firm will try cases often impacts the ability to achieve pretrial resolution on better terms
for the firm’s clients.
