‘Most Effective’ Personal Injury Lawyers
Haggard Law Firm attorney Todd Michaels was named a Most Effective Lawyer of South Florida, in the Personal Injury category, by the Daily Business Review.
Today, the periodical published its article detailing the case cited in the announcement of the honor Michaels, a $3.1 million settlement to the family of 21-year-old Charles Lucas, who was shot to death outside a Miami nightclub in 2011 while he tried to diffuse an altercation.
Haggard Law Firm Attorney Pedro Echarte was listed as the only finalist in the same category. Echarte was recognized for his litigation efforts on behalf of the family of a 22-year-old father who was paralyzed trying to protect loved ones during a home invasion attempt. The case resulted in a more than $10 million settlement. To review details of this negligent security case, click here.
This is the second consecutive year that a Haggard Law attorney has been named by the DBR as the Most Effective Lawyer in the Personal Injury category. Christopher Marlowe was honored with the recognition in 2015.
The nomination process required proof of positive results obtained by the attorney for the client, obstacles overcome during a case, impact on public policy and business interests, and the professional track record of the nominees.
