As Erik explained on the firm’s website, A to Z also means that they are dedicated to leaving no stone unturned in helping clients meet their needs. They deal with personal injury and different types of accident cases.

K Skip Pita, who was voted super lawyer in 2020; the other two are Randy Weber and Rosalina Weber.
6. Steinger, Greene & Feiner
Unfortunately, if you are a large corporation or insurance company, Steinger, Greene & Feiner will not represent you since they swore only to represent real people, not big businesses. Michael, who is the founding partner of the firm, has vowed to keep this promise, and his clients sing nothing but praises for the way he handles the lawsuits. Together with Greene, who has recovered over $150 million in compensation for his clients, and Feiner who has gone up against Microsoft, the three lawyers provide a haven for personal injury victims.
Jonathan Friedland founded the law practice in 1994 and is committed only to handling personal injury cases that range from assault and battery to medical malpractice and wrongful death. He has also been on several bar associations since being admitted to practice in 1994. He teamed up with Michael Carmona, whose experience in insurance firms makes him a valuable asset since he knows how such firms handle personal injury claims. Both lawyers are licensed to practice in the entire state of Florida.
8. Alexander J. Perkins
Usually, it takes about five years for a lawyer to make junior partner, but Alexander made partner in the law firm he previously worked for in three years, which proves his competence. One of his landmark cases has to be when he turned an insurance coverage of $50,000 into a $10.5 million settlement, exclusive of extra-contractual dollars resulting from bad faith. Best of all, his law firm does not discriminate based on status. According to the firm’s site, he has represented both the homeless and professionals in their personal injury cases.
9. Jontiff & Jontiff
Scott J. Jontiff is among the rare few attorneys who will reject a case that does not fall within his areas of expertise, which is personal injury. However, he is always kind enough to recommend lawyers who can handle the lawsuits to those he can’t represent. Scott works on a contingency fee, and prospective clients get a no-obligation free consultation. His dedication to giving his best is also shown by the fact that he is willing to come to you when you cannot go to him, and if that commitment does not convince you to hire him, then the 5-star rating from his past clients should.
10. Robert Boyers
If you cannot get Mathew Mazzarella when you visit Boyers Law Group, then Robert Boyers will be more than happy to handle your personal injury case. 40% of the cases he deals with are under medical malpractice, 20% are product liability while the rest are general, and he only represents the plaintiff.
