Civil Litigation

Our commitment is to you…

Fifteen years’ experience as a trial attorney handling civil litigation matters

For his entire career, Mr. Radeline has practiced in the area of civil litigation. He has represented individuals and businesses, as both plaintiffs and defendants, in hundreds of cases. He has taken many cases to trial, including both jury and non-jury trials. He has also provided representation in arbitration proceedings.

Civil litigation is the most diverse specialty of law. The firm has handled many types of cases, including breach of contract, personal injury, neighbor disputes, collection matters, mortgage foreclosure, real estate litigation, defamation, construction and home improvement services litigation, commercial litigation, and more.

While the types of cases we handle are extremely diverse, the skills necessary to achieve a successful resolution for our clients remains the same: the experience of a seasoned trial attorney.

Whenever possible, we try to settle cases on favorable terms for our clients rather than take them to trial. Why is that? Because if we can achieve your goals in the least amount of time and with the least cost, then you come out as the winner. But make no mistake– Mr. Radeline is ready, willing, and able to try your case. Negotiating from a position of strength dramatically increases the likelihood of a positive outcome for you.

We work to get you paid back for your legal fees

Mr. Radeline is familiar with the different methods available to try and make your adversary reimburse you for your legal fees. Many people do not realize that in Florida, the general rule is that each side in a civil case pays their own legal fees, regardless of who wins and who loses. There are three things that can change the general rule and allow you, as the winner, to recover your legal fees from the losing party:

  1. If the lawsuit involves a contract that says the loser pays the winner’s legal fees;
  2. If the lawsuit involves a statute that requires the loser to pay the winner’s legal fees; or
  3. If a formal Proposal for Settlement is made according to the strict requirements of law.

While every case is unique, we can discuss the exact methodology that may allow you to get back when we win your case for you.
