In law, a contract is a binding legal agreement that is enforceable in court. That is to say, it is an exchange of promises for the breach of which the law will provide a remedy. Binding contracts can be in writing or simply verbal agreements. It is often necessary to go to court to enforce the terms of a contract.

  • Bonds and Bonding

Landlord-Tenant Eviction

Our lawyers have extensive experience in the area of landlord-tenant eviction litigation. We have gone to court on behalf of tenants and landlords in residential and commercial properties. Our team has filed and defended evictions, as well as helped those sued for alleged breaches of lease agreements.

The eviction process in Florida is very specific and can be complicated. Having an attorney on your side with experience in eviction matters can help ensure that the legal requirements of the process are taken care of so that delays are kept to a minimum.

Real Estate Litigation

Disputes over real property and title can be very complicated and time-consuming. This is why it is important to have an attorney with experience in these areas to make sure your rights are protected. To meet your specific legal needs, we leverage extensive knowledge in real property and title litigation.


Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage)

We understand this is a stressful time for you. The complicated nature of our system, the issues that arise during the equitable distribution process, and the decision on parenting plans are often times too much to handle on your own.


Where paternity of the child is in question, a party may ask the court to determine paternity of one or several possible fathers—called putative fathers—based initially upon sworn statements and then upon testimony or other evidence.

A successful application to the court results in an order assigning paternity to a specific man, possibly including support responsibility and visitation rights.

Family Law

This is an area that touches on family-related issues, including the following:

  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce)
  • Injunctions
  • Modifications to Divorce or Custody Settlement Agreements
