A Passion to Do What’s Right One Goal... Justice 954-341-2777

March 2019

I ’ve been practicing law for 16 years, and after trying as many cases as I have, I like to think it gives me a good perspective on what cases should go to trial and which ones should settle out of court. At all times, I’m guided by one principle: the best interest of my client. Over the past 16 years, I’ve gotten to know a lot of attorneys and insurance adjusters. We have dealt with each other over and over again through the years. As they become more familiar, the insurance companies get to know who is willing to actually step foot into the courthouse and who is not. Going to court is as much of a strain on clients as it is their attorneys, and it’s just as difficult for the families of the trial lawyers. When I go to trial on a case, oftentimes I have to stay in a hotel room due to the time crunch of things that need to get done by the time the Judge concludes court for the day. Spending 3 hours in a car trying to get home after a day of trial, when things need to get done the next day, is just not a good use of time. As a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an organization that requires its members to have tried a certain number of jury trials, my opposition knows my firm is willing to take those steps. I’m very proud of my membership in this organization, and it doesn’t hurt my clients that the defense attorneys know me as not just another accident lawyer, but someone they have had a meal or a drink with. Trying lawsuits for injured people is a passion. It’s not just a job to me. When my clients meet with me for the first time in my office, there’s always some natural anxiety about their situation. I always reassure them that I will do whatever I can to aggressively pursue their claim, and that I will be with them every step of the way.

individual differences and to help extinguish the destructive flames of prejudice early. I’m proud to be involved with such an organization. I currently serve on an ADL civil rights committee, and would highly recommend the Glass Leadership Institute to anyone who wants to get involved in this important organization. From where I stand, there are a lot of people in our world who need a voice. I do what I can to give them one, whether it’s in the courtroom or in our community.

Our clients are not just another file. Adelman & Adelman, P.A. was founded as a father- and-son law firm, and when you become a client, we are bringing you into our family. We care deeply about what happens to our clients during their claims, but just as much afterward. I tell my clients to please call me if there is anything I can do to help. My cards say “attorney and counselor of law.” I wear the counselor hat quite often for former clients who just need to run a legal or life problem by me. I’m always here to listen. As passionate as I am about fighting for my clients, that passion extends outside the office. I’m involved with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The ADL’s mission is to fight anti-Semitism along with all other forms of bigotry. The fight for equal rights and social justice means a lot to me. I’m a strong believer that people should be judged on merit — not the color of their skin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or anything along these lines.
