About me

I have spent my entire career working in the field of personal injury and insurance law. I began practice in 1975 working for a firm doing primarily insurance defense work and some plaintiff personal injury practice.  Later I formed my own firm which I grew into a 9 lawyer firm again doing both insurance defense and some plaintiff's personal injury work.  In the year 2000 I redirected my effort to work as a mediator as a Supreme Court Certified Civil Mediator. Also I am a Federal Mediator and have taken special training to act in an experimental program in appellate mediation through the Fifth District Court of Appeals.  I have tried numerous jury trials and have about 19 report appellate decisions including three arguments at the Florida Supreme Court.

Currently I remain active as a mediator and work with my daughter Meghan Kane in the Kane Law Firm, P.A. which restricts it's practice to representing individuals injured as a result of the negligence of others.   Our Offices are located .3 miles north of SR 50 at 919 Outer Road, Orlando Florida in the area commonly known as Baldwin Park.

I was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in New Jersey.  I have been married since 1975 to my lovely wife, Eileen and we have 2 children, Meghan who I practice law with and Molly who is currently attending the University of Florida.

You can learn more about Meghan and I at our web site at where you will also find helpful articles on numerous legal issues.
