"As trial lawyers, we often find ourselves in the shoes of the underdog. This is never more true than in protecting the rights of injured employees in Florida's workers’ compensation system. 

It's a system that lawmakers repeatedly skew in favor of big corporate interests -- through cutting worker benefits, denying basic medical choice, and allowing the insurance companies to control the amount they charge employers for coverage. 

We stand as a last line of defense for injured workers in the face of powerful influences of big business. 

I am EAGLE to ensure that Florida’s injured workers have a voice, receive the benefits they need to get back to work quickly, and are able to seek accountability when insurers wrongfully deny those benefits.

I have watched and participated in FJA's collective strength to use this voice to safeguard individual rights and protect access to courts

I have experienced firsthand the importance of FJA in protecting my current and future clients. How could I not be EAGLE?"
