Newsletter – Fall 2018


If you are like us, you are ready for the summer heat (and the red tide) to be finally over. We are looking forward to some cooler weather and clean gulf beaches again.

Fortunately, the Tampa Bay area was not affected by this hurricane season. Sadly, our friends and neighbors in Florida’s Panhandle were not so fortunate. To help support the victims of Hurricane Michael, our firm made donations to The American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. These are both great organization focused on providing disaster relief to those affected by Hurricane Michael.

Also, we would like to share some brief updates about our law firm:

We are honored to receive the U.S. News and World Report Best Law Firm rating for 2018 and, again, for the upcoming 2019. This rating is based upon client feedback and reviews.

In addition to our larger offices in Tampa and Clearwater, we have expanded our presence in St. Petersburg and Pasco County to be even more accessible to clients. Both offices are staffed full-time by our team members and have recently been enlarged and remodeled.

Our team is proud to announce that Attorney Hendrick “Henk” Uiterwyk received, from the Florida Justice Association, The Jon E. Krupnick Award for his determination and tenacious representation of the client, a victim of a motor scooter accident who sustained a traumatic brain injury resulting in severe brain damage. The Jon E. Krupnick award was established to honor a trial lawyer champion whose efforts on behalf of a particular client reflect relentless commitment, perseverance and fortitude to seek justice and achieve success through all obstacles and legal roadblocks which were encountered. Henk was committed to seeking justice for the client for over eight years which consisted of two trials and six appeals.

On behalf of the firm, we wish you and your family a safe, rewarding and enjoyable Fall season.
