What's the difference between a lawyer vs attorney?

When you look up the answer on the internet, almost every answer is wrong, usually claiming things like “A lawyer can give you legal advice because they've gone to law school, but they haven't passed the bar.” This would actually be a felony in Florida. At least in South Florida, it's not uncommon to see people that engage in the unlicensed practice of law like it's no big deal. In order to be an informed consumer, you can verify every attorney has an active law license on that attorney's state bar association's website.

Every case evaluation and consultation is free.

When you're injured by someone else, you always should consult with a lawyer. My consultations and case evaluations are always free and you lose nothing by contacting me. The worst mistake you can make is choosing the wrong lawyer or trying to deal with the insurance company on your own.

Co-Counsel Litigation and Jury Trials

As a trial lawyer, I co-counsel cases that need to be litigated and pushed to trial in order to obtain the best result possible. Insurance companies often wont settle a case for the maximum amount unless they're forced to risk losing at trial.
