With so many attractions and beautiful weather, Florida is able to welcome tourists year-round. This has led to a thriving tourism and hospitality industry, staffed by hard-working employees that include tour guides, restaurant servers, bartenders, hotel staff, and others.

Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
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
