Since 1968 my practice has been dedicated to representing injured people in workers' compensation and personal injury actions . . .  I have also been recognized as A/V Preeminent in workers' compensation and personal injury, as well as an appellate attorney, having argued in the Florida Supreme Court on numerous occasions, and all the  Appellate Courts of Florida.

In addition, I have been involved in landmark and groundbreaking litigation in our state that has had national implications . . . in 1972, I successfully partnered with Melvin Belli to obtain a $350,000 verdict for sucessfully suing a tire company for injuries to my client in the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida.

During the 1980s and 90s I pioneered successful second hand smoke litigation in workers' compensation for non-smoking flight attendants against various airlines with bases in South Florida . . . this lead to my filing of Broin v. Phip Morris, Inc., with Stanley Rosenblatt, a class action involving 65,000 flight attendants, the world's first time that the US tobacco industry ever paid any money in a case involving injury from using tobacco.  That settlement was $300,000,000.

And in the 1990s I was successful in linking pesticide exposure to aplastic anemia in an agricultural employee.

My career has included leadership positions in numerous legal orginizations, with the latest being the Board of Directors of the Weston Bar Association.
