I am proud of my profession, but I believe we must make fundamental changes in the way we serve our clients. Abraham Lincoln admonished young lawyers to “discourage litigation” whenever possible. All lawyers should heed these words. I also believe we have a duty to speak and write in plain English. Too often, lawyers write legal documents that are confusing to the average person. These principals are summarized in the following personal commitment I make to each client:
■ Reach settlement or trial as quickly as possible.
■ Speak and write in plain English.
■ Provide high quality legal service at a fair price.
Appointment. Mr. Rarick’s office is located in Miami Lakes at 6500 Cowpen Rd., Suite 204. You may schedule an appointment by contacting his office at (305) 556-5209.
