I have practiced law since 1988. I value the opportunity to serve clients and help resolve their conflicts. My goal is to vigorously represent my clients in the most cost effective and professional manner possible. My practice is focused on Bankruptcy and Insolvency matters and Commercial Litigation. I seek to provide as much information as possible to clients at the outset of the representation so that they can make the most informed decision on how to proceed with their case.   It is important to discuss the positive and negative aspect of a case as well as the approximate cost of proceeding with a course of action. 

 

I was Born in Chicago Illinois in 1961 and moved to Florida in 1977. I have been married for 23 years and have two children born in 1995 and 1999. Aside from practicing law, I enjoy family  travel, golf and the Beach.

BEST LAWYER I HAVE EVER HAD
Mr. Abrams was in charge of my case and I have to say that he was very professional throughout the process. He provided me with great guidance and made me feel secure with his great level of professionalism. He solved my case so fast that I couldn't really believe it. Of course, with a great outcome. He was always kept me posted and informed with the status of my case. Sincerely, I have not enough words to thank Mr. Abrams and his staff members. Aside from being a great Lawyer, he is a great human being who will listen and understand your situation and advise you based on your needs. I hope that this testimony helps more people that are in need of a great and honest Lawyer. Thank you again Mr. Abrams for giving me and my family the peace that we were looking for.

Remarkable lawyer and individual!
Mr Abrams is the most professional, trustworthy person I have ever met. Most lawyers tell you what they think you want to hear while doing what they do best, which is billable hours. This is not the case with Mr. Abrams. He took over an ongoing lengthy litigation that had only resulted in the lawyers getting rich. He did what was in my best interest and negotiated and settled this situation. I cannot express my gratitude to him during a difficult situation. He talked to me with respect and went beyond the call of duty to see the situation to the end even when there was no monetary gain for him. He is indeed a fine lawyer and an example of an exceptional person. Thank you, Mr. Abrams, words cannot express my gratitude to you.
