Experienced Fort Lauderdale Business Attorney

Business, Real Estate, and Civil Litigation in Florida State & Federal Courts.

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.
