Areas of Practice

We focus on civil litigation which allows us to effectively process your case through the legal system. A focus on civil litigation allows an attorney to represent a client in those cases where the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure determine the process of navigating a case through the court systems. A knowledge of preparing and filing complaints, answers, motions, responses, notices, and other pleadings is essential. This foundational knowledge establishes a basis for effectively representing clients in court cases as well as other legal proceedings. This foundation along with a thorough understanding of the law helps to provide clients with a portion of the required fundamentals needed for success in such proceedings. We focus on family law, employment & labor law, landlord/tenant, contract law, construction law, foreclosures, and wills & trusts. Many of these types of law are intertwined and require a level of knowledge for effective representaiton in other areas. We will also offer you referrals to other attorneys if we don't have sufficient knowledge to give you effective representation. Give us a call.

                                  Protecting your employment rights

Unlawful discrimination is an unfortunate evil that still persists today. If you feel that you've been treated wrong at your place of employment, come in or give us a call. Being treated wrong, unfairly, or adversely is unlawful if it is based on your race, color, national origin, sex/gender, religion, marital status, disability, pregnancy, age, or support of someone in one of the previous categories. Sometimes it is difficult to identify unlawful discrimination. Fortunately for you, the people at The Torchlight Law Firm can help you identify and properly address these issues. As an employee, you have employment rights under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. 1983, The Florida Civil Rights Act, The ADA, The ADEA, FMLA (and its amendments), and many other state and federal laws which protect employee rights. 

We also address other employment issues such as; overtime, improper employment classification, equal pay, workers comp discrimination, and many others. You don't need to go it alone. We're here to help. Give us a call! 

Employers aren't likely to discriminate against you then admit to it. If you have been discriminated against, you need legal representation. Let The Torchlight Law Firm represent you in your employment law matter.

                                              Other Legal Issues

In addition to family law and employment law matters, let the Torchlight Law Firm represent you in your construction law matters. If your contractor has performed his job in a less than workman like manner, we can help you. If your contractor is threatening a lien and is not due payment, give us a call. Construction law is very technical. There are numerous pre-requisites which should be met before filing a lawsuit. Consult with an attorney, call us. 

If you have a tenant who refuses to pay rent or comply with all the terms and conditions of your rental or leasing agreement, call us. If you have a landlord who tries to make you live in a slum, call us. Let us help you through all of your landlord/tenant issues. We address landlord/tenant issues for both commercial and residential property. 

Don't sign an agreement without reading and understanding it. I recommend that you have an attorney review every agreement you are thinking about signing before you sign it. Much litigation in the Courts today revolves around a party who waived rights or failed to preserve rights when they entered into an agreement. The cost of a contract review is nominal compared to pursuing or defending a lawsuit. Florida is a freedom of contract state and getting beyond the four corners of a contract is difficult, to say the least. Call the Torchlight Law Firm if you have contract issues.

Call us with any legal issues. If we can't help you, we can point you in the right direction.

Providing legal representation throughout the State of Florida with a focus in South Florida.  

Although we practice family law, labor and employment law, construction law, contracts law, and landlord/tenant law predominantly in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties, our expertise in Florida and applicable US Law can assist you throughout the state.  

The current Palm Beach County Courthouse located in beautiful downtown West Palm Beach, Florida was built in 1994. This building stands adjacent to the previous building now known as the historic Palm Beach County Courthouse. That building was built in 1916 and included government offices and the county jail at that time. 

From a humble, remodeled school building to a twenty-story skyscraper, Broward County’s Courthouse has been rebuilt and reimagined for Broward County’s ever-growing population and their changing needs. The newest courthouse tower, the Broward County Judicial Complex West Building, officially opened May 11, 2017. 

The current Dade County Courthouse is the third building to formally bear that name. Henry Flagler donated the property on which it stands. Its unique silhouette is a fixture of Miami’s ever-changing skyline. It has survived hurricanes and political tumult. For 86 years, it has been a beacon of justice for those seeking the protection of their rights and the redress of wrongs.
