  1. 1

  2. 2
    Auto Accidents

    Injuries from vehicle accidents can cause devastating financial, physical and emotional damage. If you’re the victim, you may incur thousands of dollars in medical bills while out of work due to injuries. Additionally, the law in the State of Florida only requires insurance companies to pay a percentage of the medical bills up to a limit—any remaining debts owed to medical providers should be paid by the other driver’s insurance company.

  3. 3
    Bankruptcy / Commercial Law

    Bankruptcy filings have steadily increased over the last few years, and continue to rise. More than 1.5 million people now file for bankruptcy every year. If you are behind on credit card payments, car loans, a mortgage, bank loans, legal bills or medical expenses, you may want to consider filing for bankruptcy.

  4. 4

    A criminal charge can impact the rest of your life. That is why we aggressively defend the rights of the accused and strive to take the fear and confusion out of the criminal justice system. At Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz, our criminal lawyers are experienced trial attorneys well versed in all areas of criminal law.

  5. 5
    Wills and Estates

    Everyone should have a will. A will is an absolute necessity to protect your intentions—specifically: how you want your property distributed among your heirs, gifts to other family members and friends, charitable donations and other financial arrangements. Without a will, the State of Florida decides who gets what—and that is rarely what most people want to see happen to everything they’ve worked hard their whole lives to attain.
