Counsel And Representation of Local Government Entities

The attorneys of Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt P.A. lend their extensive experience and international reputation to representing Florida government authorities in litigation and non-litigation matters. These issues range from eminent domain, zoning and land use, municipal finance, public contracts, and land acquisition to defending county and municipal agencies against personal injury claims and employment-based litigation.

As we describe in our Governmental Torts page, our attorneys have extensive experience prosecuting government agencies - experience that is invaluable in taking the "other side" and representing government agencies. In one case, our lawyers gained an $800,000.00 settlement against Dade County and assorted contractors for injuries suffered by an ironworker in the construction of a portion of the Dade County Metrorail. The contractors failed to employ safe construction practices. Knowing what legal tactics we use to gain such settlements, our lawyers can anticipate any plaintiff's case and plan a defense accordingly.

In general, there are few law firms in Florida better equipped to win high-profile cases than Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt P.A. We regularly receive cases from other firms who cannot handle large-scale legislation. Our attorneys have been recognized nationally and internationally, and our aggressive, innovative work in court has brought our clients some of the largest verdicts in history and changed Florida and United States law by setting many legal precedents.
