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. 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 matters.
The results obtained by the Firm can be attributed to, among other things, the process by which each of its cases is handled. Within 30 days of being retained to represent a client in a litigation matter, the Firm completes a full initial suit analysis, including: a summary of its initial fact investigation, an analysis of the procedural and substantive areas of law that may impact the case, the identification of the trial judge or arbitrator who will be presiding over the case, a full plan for discovery, settlement prospects, and an analysis of the costs of litigating the case through trial. The initial analysis is supplemented and revised throughout the course of the case and continually serves as a guide to the Firm in seeking to favorably resolve the case, either through settlement or a jury or non-jury trial.
Research and writing
While the Firm prides itself on exceptional performance in the courtroom, it also emphasizes superior research and writing. A published author adept at writing complicated legal memoranda and appellate briefs, Mr. Carlin’s scholarly work has been cited in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and he has successfully handled appeals to several of Florida’s appellate courts and to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals (in Atlanta).
The Firm stays abreast of changes and developments in the law by closely monitoring and reviewing Florida appellate cases and by attending advanced continuing legal education seminars related to the areas in which the Firm practices. By remaining at the forefront of changes to the law, Mr. Carlin is frequently able to identify rights, claims, and defenses to best represent his clients.
