Todd Orston Divorce & Separation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Jay absolutely knows nothing about what he speaks. He just analyzed a Florida State law claim, under inappropriate federal law, screaming that the woman had no case against a sovereign entity while utterly and completely ignoring 768.28 and a body of case law that holds that she does. Make sure he's better prepared for your case. He was certainly dead wrong there.
