In a recent opinion, the Florida Supreme Court reversed a Fourth DCA decision and instead reinstated a jury verdict awarding a GEICO insured $9.2 million due to GEICO’s bad faith handling of a wrongful death claim. See Harvey v. GEICO, No. SC17-85, 2018 WL 4496566 (Fla. Sept. 20, 2018). The Harvey decision is worth review […]

Grammar! How verb tense won a health insurance lawsuit!

Many “trial lawyers”  crow about how much money they make for themselves and their clients.  We’re not of that ilk. Every case is important to the client, and for us. Let me tell you about a recent case of ours that I’m just tickled about. We represent a wonderful woman who has been a public […]

Reverse Mortgage problems… the issues are ongoing

I posted about Reverse Mortgages two weeks ago. We received some excellent and helpful e-mails in response, as well as several comments here on the Legal Examiner.

Reverse Mortgages and Mortgage Servicing: What we continue to learn is disturbing

Mrs. Gravlin had been […]

Ruminations on advertising and being a fiduciary

I’ve been doing a lot of driving lately, to Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Tampa… and it seems that in every major city, there are the same billboards, showing some smiling individual with the tag line that their lawyer got them X number of dollars!  Of course the lawyer is different , depending on which city the […]

Honor and Mendacity, the yang and yin of doing things right

If you haven’t taken the time to go and watch “The Big Short” movie, you really ought to. It is thought provoking, true, informative, and it will make you angry. (The acting, and the directing are beyond top notch). Like many folks, for me, this time of year is one of both reflection and planning.  […]
