  • Owning a vessel is one of the great luxuries of living in Florida. If you have ever wondered about chartering your vessel for extra income or to compensate for maintenance costs, contact a qualified, experienced maritime attorney. We will be able to explain all aspects of chartering your vessel and how to do it in a manner that protects your business.

  • Business contracts can be confusing. Are verbal contracts legally binding? Do I have to sign specific paperwork to put a contract in effect? What are the rules in a verbal contract? All of these questions, and more, come up constantly when discussing contract law in Florida. It is best to discuss these matters with a qualified, experienced business law attorney to find answers. Do not go rushing into a business contract without consulting with an attorney. The money spent on an attorney pales in comparison to breaking a contract. We know; we see it every day in court.

  • Are there any circumstances a landowner can be found negligent?

    A landowner can be found negligent if the landowner is aware of or should be aware of a damaged area of his property, or the landowner ignores a request to repair damaged areas of property. However, if the problems have been addressed and repaired to code in a reasonable amount of time, the landowner probably will not be found negligent. Laws limiting landowners liabilities are well defined and difficult to prove in a Florida courtroom. Expert legal counsel is the best option for discovering any circumstances a landowner may be found negligent. It is easy to stress about legal matters when you work with poor legal counsel. You can avoid any problems by choosing expert legal counsel that understands negligence law in Florida.

Avoid contacting attorneys fresh out of law school and attorneys who specialize in an alternate area of law because negligence law takes years to master and understand your ideas and concepts.
