KEVIN E. LEISURE, P.A.

WORKERS COMPENSATION


I have vast experience in workers' compensation in representing both injured workers and employer/carriers.  I have experience in handling complex litigation, such as heart/lung, chemical exposure and repetitive trauma cases. I have given seminars on workers' compensation law at the MSHA conference, as well as to businesses and insurance companies.  Let me put my experience to work for you.


FAMILY LAW


After going through my own divorce, I can empathize with the emotional pain that the end of a marriage can bring.  It is often difficult to look out for your legal interests while dealing with the emotional turmoil.  However, issues such as custody, child support, visitation, alimony and equitable distribution will live with you long after your divorce is final.  If you are not married, issues regarding determination of paternity, custody, visitation and child support are equally important.  In addition, life changes can result in the need for a modification.  Therefore, it is important that you retain a qualified attorney to represent you during this time.  Let me give you my expertise and experience to represent you.


PERSONAL INJURY


If you have experienced an injury as the result of a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall or some other accident, please contact me before accepting an offer to settle your case.  It is important that you have someone protecting your rights during this difficult time and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your loss.


APPELLATE LAW


Not every case ends with the correct or desired result.  The appellate process can be complicated and the success rate in the State of Florida is low.  Therefore, it is important that you retain an experienced appellate attorney in these matters.  I have argued over 75 cases before the First and Second District Court of Appeals.  Along the way, I have represented some of the largest businesses in Florida, such as Publix Super Markets, Inc., Mosaic, Home Depot, IBM, Dollar General and Pepsi.   I do not limit the area of law for which I represent businesses or individuals in appeals.  Please contact me to schedule an appointment, so that I can discuss with you your particular case. Please remember that there is a time limit to file an appeal; therefore, please do not delay.
