Brevard County’s Trial-Tested Personal Injury Team

Principals Jack Platt and Billie Jo Hopwood, along with the rest of the team, are respected litigators throughout Brevard and the surrounding counties. We come to litigation prepared, fully armed with the motions and arguments to achieve your objectives.

 Many personal injury law firms are eager to settle claims, but not all are prepared to battle at trial if negotiations do not yield an acceptable offer. Insurance companies know which law firms will accept an easy settlement and which ones will fight for the results their clients deserve – and they know that we are one of the latter.

Our preparation, our legal strategy and our years of experience, together with our passionate representation, create a winning result for our clients.

Our lawyers know Florida personal injury law – not just the statutes on the books but the voluminous amount of case histories surrounding every case we take. This knowledge gives us a competitive advantage in many legal contests.
