A good lawyer has a deep understanding of the client's business and objectives. With that knowledge you use creativity and extremely hard work to achieve your client's goals.
My level of communication and how intensely hard I will work every day to achieve their goals in the litigation. One of the most important things a lawyer does with a client is communicate to make sure the client understands the status of their case every step of the way so they can assist in achieving the best possible result.
In 2004, my brother and I started The Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). The event has become one of the top fundraising fishing tournaments in the country. One of the things that makes this event so unique is the participation it garners from law firms all over the country. Each year roughly 200-300 firms from across the country participate in the tournament. The tournament has raised $5.6 million and helped fund the first-ever Crohn's and Colitis Center of South Florida which now helps hundreds of people inflicted with these diseases.
