About Me

My wife Claudia and I are pet lovers.  We like to donate our time and/or fund-raising efforts to Animal Aid, Inc., a not-for-profit no-kill shelter that takes in emergency, abuse, and neglect cases as well as dogs and cats from various high-kill animal control facilities.  If you are looking for a pet or if you would like to contribute or volunteer, visit http://www.animal-aid.com.  Someone's life depends on it.


 


As for my lawyering practice, I run the pre-litigation department for Coffey Trial Law.  We handle Personal Injury and Wrongful Death claims for persons who were involved in traffic-related incidents, injuries that occur due to negligent maintenance of premises (including slip/fall, trip/fall, exposure, burns, explosions, attacks, etc.), product liability, injuries caused by dogs, aircraft accidents, medical malpractice, and injuries involving boating, shipping, and inland waterways.  In short, if you or your loved one were unnecessarily injured and it was someone else's fault, then we may be able to help.  


 


Similarly, we represent Florida homeowners with claims against their homeowner insurance companies for damages to their homes.  Examples are water, mold, fire, smoke, roof, wind, hurricane, mold, theft, vandalism, and other sudden and unexpected damages.  It's like a personal injury to your house.  And the insurers try just as hard as personal injury insurers to save money at your expense.  


 


Our website is www.coffeytriallaw.com.  Our main office is in Fort Lauderdale, but we handle cases all over the state of Florida and we represent injured persons all over the country who were injured in Florida.  I have been a member of many organizations over the years, including Mensa, Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, Florida Justice Association, American Trial Lawyers Association, Palm Beach County Justice Association, Broward County Justice Association, ABA, Broward County Bar Association, and I am admitted to practice in all Florida state courts plus the US District Courts for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida.
