Providing exceptional representation for all types of legal matters
We represent clients in all types of matters, including:
- Social Security Disability — Unfortunately, many valid Social Security Disability claims are denied in the state of Florida. Because the SSD appeals process is complicated, many people give up on their claims. Don’t abandon a claim for benefits that you deserve. Consult with one of our SSD attorneys today. Social Security disability attorney Terri Cromley has been awarded the highest designation by her peers, recognized as an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings.
- Workers’ compensation — Many Florida employers are required to carry insurance that provides for medical care and other benefits to workers who are injured on the job. If your workers’ compensation claim is denied or your employer will not submit a claim on your behalf, it is important to consult with a skilled workers’ compensation attorney to help obtain the benefits you deserve.
- DUI — The penalties for DUI in Florida are severe, but you can minimize the negative impacts of a DUI arrest by hiring our experienced DUI defense attorneys.
- Criminal defense — Even if you have been arrested for a crime, you have rights. Don’t face criminal charges alone, it is extremely important to have a knowledgeable attorney advocate representing you to minimize penalties and safeguard your future.
- Car accidents — Car accidents are often caused by negligence and can result in serious injuries and costly damages. Drivers distracted by texting, facebooking and telephone calls pose hazards. Our Bradenton accident attorneys fight for maximum compensation for clients who have been involved in auto accidents.
- Motorcycle accidents — Drivers of other vehicles often fail to check for motorcycles or tailgate motorcycles. When an accident occurs due to another person’s negligent activities, you have a legal right to seek compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries.
