Snow and winter conditions have already hit Northern Florida and the icy weather is now headed to Southern Florida. It may even impact Miami, Hollywood, Homestead, West Palm Beach, and other areas.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
