Insurance Affects Everyone
When there are disputes concerning payment or non-payment of insurance claims, it is imperative to find the most capable counsel to provide the best service in getting you the compensation that you need. Your attorney will have a working knowledge of the insurance industry, applicable laws, and how to resolve your dispute without requiring lengthy court time. Let us help you get your life back to normal with the compensation you deserve.
Florida’s Code of Ethics
The state of Florida has rules of professional conduct that all attorneys must follow. If you feel your attorney has been negligent or “dropped the ball,” it may be legal malpractice. This can include negligence, overcharges, abuse of trust, lack of skills, conflicts of interest, failure to communicate, and not meeting court deadlines, among others. If you feel your attorney has failed to meet the standards you expected from your legal counsel contact us and we will help you resolve your dispute.
The Florida Arbitration Process
Arbitration is an alternate dispute resolution process that provides a means of settling disagreements without going through the courts. Business arbitration in Florida requires detailed knowledge. It is basically a three step process, beginning with one party filing for arbitration, the second party being notified, and their joint selection of an arbitrator. If you have a dispute you want resolved without going to court, contact our office so Mr. Burkett can take a look at your case to determine your best course of action.
Help for Business Owners
General commercial litigation involves virtually every type of dispute that can arise in the business context, including breach of contract cases, partnership/joint venture disputes, class actions, business torts, civil RICO claims, breach of fiduciary duty allegations, and shareholder issues.
Help for Professionals and Patients
As an experienced former General Counsel of a home healthcare company, Bob Burkett can assist you with any healthcare legal issue, whether you are a patient, physican, hospital or nursing home. Mr. Burkett assists professionals with maintaining compliance with regulations and standards. Patients in nursing homes or assisted living facilities can be helped with medical directives or wills and trusts, or we can represent you if the facility has engaged in mistreatment or caused physical harm.
