About me

TEL. 305-933-9292 or 954-919-5669; EMAIL: cmb@baronjustice.com.  WEBSITE: www.baronjustice.com.  I represent and counsel clients in numerous areas of law (over 30 years) and serve as a Circuit Court Mediator (guiding parties to settlement of their litigation or insurance claims).  My extensive litigation experience, being "around the block" in the legal field, enhances my skills as a mediator, and my mediation training/experience enhances my skills as a legal advocate and counselor.   


Please contact me for ANY type of legal issue or advice.  You will be able to speak to me personally, usually within 24 hours of your call, if not immediately.  Free consultations for personal injury, wrongful death, police brutality, criminal defense cases and some other matters, and reasonable consultation fees for commercial, employment, land use/zoning and general practice matters.  If there is an issue that we don't handle, we most likely can refer you to another reputable lawyer who does.  


I have represented clients in just about every type of court (civil, criminal, family, domestic violence, juvenile, probate, State, Federal, trial, appellate, etc.), as well as before many county and municipal boards and Federal, State, and local administrative agencies (such as zoning boards, code enforcement, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, Fla. Public Employees Relations Commission, and Fla. Division of Administrative Hearings).  


We believe that our clients deserve our personal and timely attention. We communicate with our clients to address their concerns and keep them informed on the progress of their matter.  Our clients depend on us to aggressively pursue their goals, leaving no stone unturned.  Whether in the courtroom or in our research, pleadings, and discovery (search for information), we strive to find ways to best advance the client’s cause.
