Experienced Attorneys For Civil Litigation in Florida
Civil litigation establishes the rights, duties, or obligations between parties in a dispute. Taking a friend, neighbor, or business associate to court is never a pleasant or preferred option, but sometimes it is a required course of action. The purpose of civil litigation is to make sure an agreement is honored between parties, and the law is upheld.

Handling Insurance Broker Negligence Claims
If you have unintentionally purchased lesser insurance coverage due to the negligence of your broker or agent and your property has sustained damage, you may have a valid Directors and Officer’s liability claim. Under Florida law, a broker procuring insurance coverage for a client must use reasonable care and may be liable if the insurance coverage is not as explicitly requested or warranted by the insured’s needs.
An appeal is the process of a higher court reviewing a lower court’s decision for legal and prejudicial errors in trial court. There may be procedural errors, errors in the evidence, or errors in the interpretation of the law, which may have affected the lower court’s decision.
The outcome of an appeal may be the following:
· The higher court may affirm the lower court’s ruling.
· The verdict may be reversed, and the case remanded to the lower court for further action in a new trial.
· The higher court may partly affirm and reverse the lower court’s judgment, remanding the case to the lower court to correct the issues.
At Williams & Williams, we know that the stakes are high when your claim gets appealed. We have a track record of success on behalf of our clients in civil appeals in Florida State courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals.
