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.

Mr. Carlin was referred to us by our family attorney to represent us in a very complicated litigation case. His thoroughness, timely and consistent communication, and professionalism made the negative experience bearable and educational. It is very easy to work with someone who listens and truly understands where you’re coming from. He is a result-oriented and exceptional attorney that I highly recommend. –Isa
I recommend Mr. Carlin without hesitation for any case you might have. Mr. Carlin is trustworthy and works extremely hard to make sure that he knows every detail of your case to best ensure a positive outcome for you. Mr. Carlin works with integrity something I found to be lacking in the “legal system.” If you want someone you can trust and will go the extra mile for you Justin is that person. –Consumer Client
I’m 46, have worked countless attorneys in different areas of the law, courts and litigation. Justin is one of the best communicators, responders & easy to understand & work with lawyers I’ve met. His research, preciseness and clarity of opinions are simple & easy to understand for any lay person, a rare find in a lawyer. –Eric
This was the first time in my life that I had to hire an attorney and I’m so glad I was referred to Mr. Carlin. It was a complex situation, but Mr. Carlin used his knowledge and expertise to execute an outstanding outcome for my family and me. He is extremely professional, well-spoken and wise. I always felt he had my best interests in mind and was willing to fight on my behalf to achieve the best outcomes. If I ever need assistance in the future, I will surely return to Mr. Carlin. –Divorce Client
A boxing match is won long, long before the fighters step in the ring. The one that works the hardest preparing almost always wins – even against odds and against fighters with more experience. Justin’s performance in my case was a testament to that. He was fighting a whole team of attorneys by himself for most of the case and kicking their ass. My only regret is not getting to watch the trial, as the case settled after jury selection. -Dave
I had an extremely complex situation that needed to be resolved during a difficult time in my life. I was referred to Mr. Carlin through my real estate attorney, who told me that I should trust him for this recommendation. I then flew in from New York to meet Mr. Carlin in person, and by doing so, it allowed me to feel at ease and confident of having the attorney that I desired. It was an amazing experience watching him work while he was representing me in court. -Emmanuel
