Phil takes great pride in helping clients effectively navigate the difficulties of the legal system and ensuring the insurance company on the other side knows he is there to fight for his client’s rights and get them the benefits they deserve under the policy. This is the reason he focuses on personal injury, car accident cases and insurance disputes. Phil’s knowledge and experience combined with his creative approach to cases has resulted in many large and favorable verdicts for his clients. And his results speak for themselves in the numerous large verdicts he has obtained against insurance companies which have earned him Lifetime Membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Phil has built a solid reputation among his peers and takes great pride in being sought out by both local and out-of-town attorneys who need assistance with the technical aspects of trial and appeals. Phil has handled the appellate briefing and legal arguments before the trial and appellate courts of Florida, often resulting in an overturn of an unfavorable judgment or outcome for clients. Phil’s focus is always on the needs of his clients and the rights they have under the law. Many people are surprised to learn the lengths an insurance company will go to in order to pay less or nothing on a legitimate claim. Phil takes great pride and pleasure in standing up for the little guy—everyday policy holders like you who have paid their premiums and expect the insurance company to fulfill its obligation—and getting them the benefits they are entitled to so they can get back on their feet after an accident and move forward with their lives. At the end of the day, Phil attributes his successes to his ability to see each client and each case uniquely and to choose the path that best advances his client’s goals. When Phil is not in the office, he enjoys camping, hiking, reading, cycling, swimming, and cooking with his wife and two sons. When his sons have their way, Phil’s free time is spent Kung-Fu fighting and “beyblading.”
