Florida Clergy Abuse Attorneys
Our Group of Florida Clergy Abuse Attorneys , for the victims of clergy abuse, including children and adults who have been molested by priests, pastors, or others who held a position of trust. Because of the nature of these cases, representation includes confidential pre-suit negotiations where possible, and if these are unsuccessful, filing suit for physical harm and mental anguish.
Our firm also provides representation to other victims of crime, including those injured due to inadequate security, drunk driving accident victims where alcohol was negligently served, and other instances of assault or violence which could have been prevented by persons in a position of responsibility. We use the same case handling techniques to resolve these matters pre-suit if possible, but stand ready to take appropriate cases to trial.

FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT ATTORNEYS
The Fair Labor Standards Act Attorneys have the ability to help employers be proactive in trying to avoid becoming entangled in lawsuits, or at least minimize the risk of serious disruption of business if litigation is filed. We do so by drafting employer policies and procedures and employee handbooks; providing employer-sponsored seminars and workshops on discrimination and harassment policies; drafting non-compete and confidentiality/non-disclosure agreements; defending unemployment claims and EEOC complaints; and defending FLSA claims.
EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT INCOME SECURITY ACT ATTORNEYS
The Federal Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, also known as ERISA, is the primary law governing employment benefits litigation. If you have a claim for disability, medical or other types of benefits and you received your benefits through your employment, most likely your claim is covered by ERISA.
The most common type of ERISA case our firm handles is a claim for long-term disability benefits. These cases are filled with pitfalls that can derail an otherwise meritorious claim. These pitfalls can be avoided or at least dealt with provided you contact an attorney early in the process.
Another type of case we handle is a suit for recovery of unpaid medical benefits. A frequent variation on this theme is a claim that an employer has failed to provide appropriate COBRA notices.
We are also happy to review potential cases involving inappropriate investments or other pension-related irregularities. On occasion we have reviewed claims that an employer terminated an employee that was about to vest in a pension to avoid such vesting.
