Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    If you or a loved one has recently suffered an injury in an accident as the result of another's negligence or while on another's property, then you need to work with a firm that places an emphasis on personalized support and assistance. Each case is different, accidents affect people differently, and no two accidents are exactly alike. Keenly aware of this fact, we strive to tailor our representation accordingly.

    22 years, 10,000 cases

  2. Car accident
    In the wake of car accidents, victims can experience tremendous strains and setbacks. From the physical injuries they sustain to life-altering emotional damages, victims and families are forced to endure some of the most difficult experiences life has to offer. To make matters worse, victims and families are often forced to grapple with debilitating debts accrued from costly medical bills, property losses, lost work wages, and lost income. No two accidents are alike, no two injuries the same.

  3. Slip and fall accident
    Property owners are legally obligated to adequately maintain their business, premises or property in a manner that makes it reasonably safe for the public. A "public invitee" - meaning a guest, visitor or lawfully permitted invitee on another's property - has the right to be kept safe from preventable harm and to expect safe and healthy conditions. When a premises owner fails to provide safe conditions they can be held liable for the injuries and damages victims suffer.

  4. Trucking accident
    Commercial vehicles are massive pieces of machinery that share the same roads and highways as the general public. With an extremely high potential to cause injuries and horrific harm, truck accidents have become a concern for numerous organizations and agencies throughout Florida and the nation. After truck accidents occur, trucking and insurance companies begin investigations immediately. Truck accident victims injured in accidents that they did not cause may recover their damages.

  5. Insurance
    When an accident occurs in the state of Florida, the first point of contact for recovery is likely an insurance company. Whether the injured party is attempting to utilize benefits from their own Personal Injury Protection ("PIP") or Underinsured-Uninsured Motorist Coverage, or recover from the at fault parties bodily injury coverage, a keen understanding of insurance law is a necessary prerequisite to making a proper claim.

    22 years, 50 cases

  6. Motorcycle accident
    Motorcycle accidents, more than any other type of motor vehicle accident, have an overwhelming potential to result in injuries. As riders have little protecting them from harm, these injuries are also often severe and commonly include spinal injuries and brain injuries. In the wake of motorcycle accidents, riders are often required to undergo expensive treatment. Combine these medical bills with wage loss caused by the inability to work, full compensation becomes the top priority.

  7. Animal and dog bites
    Animal attacks, especially dog bites, are a frequent occurrence throughout Florida and across the country. According to the Florida Statutes §767.04, Florida law makes it clear that the owner of any dog that bites another person while they are on public property, or lawfully on private property, is liable for the damages a victim suffered. As these attacks can cause physical, emotional and financial damages, our firm works tirelessly to recover full and fair compensation on your behaf

Mr. Reynolds Prevailed On My Behalf For Over $1,000,000
Carl Reynolds represented me in a lawsuit which took 6 years to come to a resolution. The Defendant fought hard against my claim, but Mr. Reynolds and his staff did not give up and fought back even harder. It was a long hard fight and in the end Mr. Reynolds prevailed on my behalf gaining a jury verdict of over $1,000,000. Attorney Reynolds made me feel like he was truly concerned for my well being and that I truly mattered. During those six years, Attorney Reynolds and his staff became family and they treated me like family. I am very grateful that God placed Mr. Reynolds in my path. Thanks again Mr. Reynolds!

Car accident
Mr Reynolds represented me after my car accident. I found his staff quite professional, knowledgeable and caring. They always returned my calls or email timely and completely. At the end of this process, the results he got exceeded my expectations. I recommend him highly.
