Attorney C. Richard Nail, of counsel to GRAYROBINSON, PA, practices collaborative divorce law and mediation to help parting couples restructure their families without the added pain often involved in going to court. Rick explains that in the collaborative model, both spouses and their attorneys commit in writing to share all pertinent information, communicate respectfully, constructively and creatively, participate in conferences, and to file nothing unilaterally in court until a final settlement is reached. If either party goes to court sooner, both attorneys have to withdraw and the parties retain new counsel. Rick states that the popularity of collaborative divorce settlements continues to grow as parties learn about the many benefits this option provides. Rick has more than 40 years of legal experience. He is a Supreme Court certified family law mediator and board certified in marital and family law. Rick is one of the founding members of the Tampa Bay Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Attorney Rosemary Bardi Robinson at BARDI MEDIATIONS emphasizes that there is an effective alternative to settle differences other than a costly courtroom battle. Couples can control the decisions that affect their family, children, finances, business, and life through mediation -- which is a voluntary settlement process. Rosemary is a neutral dispute mediator who helps people in conflict make practical, informed decisions to resolve the issues before them. Rosemary is quick to point out that mediation promotes communication & cooperation, allows you to control the decisions that affect your life, is frequently less costly than litigation, benefits children & others by reducing conflict, and can be completed in less time than litigation -- so you can move ahead with your life. With her help, temporary agreements can be reached to handle immediate concerns. Couples can then work through the mediation process to determine a final separation agreement that works in the best interest of the family.

In today’s climate, where insurance companies are resisting all cases, you need an attorney who will be thorough and keep fighting for you. Attorney Timothy A. Patrick at THE PATRICK LAW GROUP, PA represents people who have suffered injuries due to the carelessness and negligence of others. His practice areas include cases of catastrophic injury, automobile & tractor-trailer negligence, premises liability, medical malpractice, products liability, and wrongful death. Attorney Patrick has experience in prosecuting claims against property and casualty insurance companies and specializes in insurance claims and disputes. When an insured party submits a claim, the insurance company either accepts the claim and pays it, denies the claim, asks for more time to investigate, or reserves their rights to later deny coverage. All of these situations may require an experienced insurance claim attorney. Attorney Patrick intentionally limits the size of his case load and client base so that he can maintain an individualized approach.
