Effective Representation for Your Business
Business Litigation & Business Transactions – ADA Defense
Real Estate Litigation – State & Federal Civil Litigation
The Carlin Law Firm, PLLC was founded with one goal in mind: excellence in all we do. Whether fielding a phone call, drafting a lawsuit, or preparing for or representing a client in a jury or non-jury trial, we endeavor to provide our clients with a most exceptional level of service throughout all phases of our clients’ matters. In some cases, that means aggressively prosecuting or defending a case through trial. In other instances, it means advising our clients when it is in their best interests (for economic or other reasons) to settle a case, rather than trying it before a judge or a jury. Simply put, we seek to provide our clients with candid, competent, and passionate legal representation—the same level of service that we would want to receive if we were to hire someone to handle our own personal legal matter.
We handle all kinds of commercial disputes in state and federal courts, including breach of contract actions, partnership disputes, and shareholder derivative actions.
The Firm is adept at handling a wide variety of real estate disputes, including mortgage foreclosures, landlord-tenant litigation, and other real property actions.
We offer banks and financial institutions an alternative to large-firm billing and volume-based, low-cost representation: competent, diligent representation for a reasonable fee.
As an extension of its real estate practice, the Firm handles virtually all kinds of legal disputes on behalf of both associations and property owners.
We assist entrepreneurs and businesses with launching new business ventures, modifying or enhancing existing business ventures, and complying with state and federal regulations.
The Firm is at the forefront of defending ADA “access lawsuits,” which has been the subject of litigation abuse in South Florida and has cost Florida businesses millions of dollars.
The Firm litigates a variety of intellectual property claims on behalf of individuals and businesses, including copyright, trademark, and trade secret claims.
We represent employers and employees in a host of employment-related lawsuits, including actions to enforce non-competition agreements and for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

I own a small business in Miami and have used Justin for several legal matters. Most recently, Justin assisted me in a trial against my former landlord, and I was awarded money damages and attorney’s fees.

I used Justin for an issue I had with the State concerning the classification of a part time independent contractor I used in my business. The worker was disputing that he was a contractor. . . .

Based on my working with him, I have sent a few people to Justin for their legal problem. –Employment Client
