Two Things You Should Know

 The practice of law changed drastically in Florida since the Great Recession ended.  Steep competition for clients has changed the landscape,  where most attorneys place their interest before yours.  Most high-end matrimonial attorneys promote conflict until you tire of spending money, then force you into settlement.  One way to protect yourself from this practice is to retain the expert who has experience with the assets you bring to the table, and let that expert help you locate an ethical attorney skilled to meet your specific needs.  This allows you to control your case and outcome.  Please review my credentials and carefully review the services I offer (shown below) and schedule a free consultation. 

The Florida Legislature adopted the  Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. 509  US  579  (1993) standard  on October 1, 2013, making it the 38th State to adopt this 1993 US Supreme Court ruling as the basis for qualifying an expert witness.  No  sooner had it been adopted the trial lawyers challenged its constitutionality under the state constitution, because too many experts failed to qualify under  this standard.  The Florida Supreme Court found this 1993 US Supreme Court ruling unconstitutional under its state constitution on February 2017, undermining the legislative intent to protect its citizenry from unqualified experts.  CPA's are routinely qualified under the 1922 Frye Standard in matters for which they have no education or training, but the unqualified are often more pliable on needed testimony and therefore more to the liking of the trial lawyers.   Winning in court requires real knowledge,  not bought testimony.  The 12 states that have not yet adopted the Daubert Standard are all the states where lawyers make the most money.  These include most of the Northeast (NY, CT, Mass, NJ), DC., Illinois, and California.   Mr. Reiss, a federally licensed actuary, has been qualified under Daubert since 2000 in federal court.
