The FF&P have been my first choice and recommendation for personal injury.Atttorney Jack Fine and his Legal Assitant , Gabrielle Jenkins and Janice were awesome in their representaion of me after a second accident in four years. They took me through the law and were on point for assistance with all my needs. Large law firms brag about recovery but the client never meets or known them. FF&P is where you can actually speak to someone and get the benefit of talking to an attorney or staff that you see in the commercials.They are kind competent and real fighters for their clients.I highly recommend Attorney Jack Fine and his staff to take care of your needs.They will get the job done.

Great Experience with FFP Law
FFP Law has been incredible to work with from first contact. Between the expert consultation with Jack, to the ongoing support I had from Gabrielle and Natalie throughout the process, I could not be more pleased. My case was complicated, and the team kept my aware of that status throughout. I also appreciated the ease of doing business through remote technology and mechanisms that didn’t require me to travel to their office. As someone who is from out of town, this made our transactions simple and efficient. The outcomes of my case were great and I always knew that I had the right people in my corner. Thank you Jack, Natalie and Gabrielle – you all are great to work with!

FFP HALL PASS IS THE BEST!
Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano is one of the best. FFP was a sponsor to the Westwood Middle School Cheerleaders this season through the Hall Pass Initiative. My team and I are grateful for the program because it has allowed our team opportunities that we would not have had without the program. A big thank you to Mrs. Gabrielle Jenkins for introducing the Hall Pass Initiative Program to us as well as Mr. & Mrs. Fine for their support. Thank you for giving back to the community and also helping so many people in our community and my family when they needed an attorney.

Excellent firm and excellent staff
I highly recommend Fine Farkash and Parlapiano Law to anyone that is looking for a personal injury or wrongful death attorney. They are well known in our community and have been around for many years. Gabrielle in their office is very knowledgeable and provided excellent information as it related to my PIP claim. She also broke down the importance of carrying additional types of coverages on my policy to protect me in the future. She is definitely a great asset to the attorneys at that firm.

Wouldn't call anyone else!
Ive seen the commercials for Fine Farkash and Parlapiano and have known of them for years, but Paul has given me a more personal insight into the kind of lawyers and staff at this law firm, based on this I wouldn't call any other personal injury attorney if the need arises.

The most approachable law firm in Gainesville!! I went to Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano not even sure where to start with the legal process and was immediately seen and helped and heard by Paul who was able to direct and guide me along to the next step in the process.

great firm, thanks Paul!
I have heard so many good things about Fine, Farkash, and Parlapiano from Paul, one of their staff. I would not have known about the importantce of contacting a personal injury firm after a car accident, if it weren't for the information I was provided. What I really love about the firm is how involved they are in the community and schools, which I think is incredible. Thank you, Paul, for taking the time to tell me about Fine, Farkash, and Parlapiano and the incredible work of the firm.

Recommend local attorney!
I'm a lifelong resident of alachua County and have seen a Jack Fine and his staff in commercials for years! I've consulted in the past and was given sage advice! I know Paul personally and the insight he has given would direct me towards Fine Farkash & Parlapiano for personal injury, even more so! If you ever are I'm need of a personal injury attorney, or even if you aren't sure, give them a call!

Call Fine, Farkash and Parlapiano!
When I had an accident a few years ago I had no idea that I needed a personal injury attorney. Knowing Paul and him telling me all about the attorneys at your firm, if I ever need one in the future I would call your firm. Recommend everyone do the same!

TEACHER APPROVED!
As a teacher in the area, I thought it was amazing to hear about the Hall Pass Initiative that Paul told me Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano has implemented for the community.

FFP Law & The Hall Pass Initiative
I am consistently blown away by FFP Law! I recently found out that for the second year in a row they have sponsored my child's school through a program called The Hall Pass Initiative by donating a check and fulfilling many of the teachers' wish lists. I reached out by phone to thanks them and spoke with Paul and Eowyn in the office who explained that the attorneys have made similar gestures for many of the other schools in our county. I'm so grateful for local businesses like FFP who put their community first and set such a wonderful example for the kind of care and consistency that our city needs. Thank you FFP Law for all that you do!
