Board Certified Trial Lawyer versus non-Board Certified Trial Lawyer
We concentrate on injury and death cases
At Carey Leisure & Neal, we have handled thousands of personal injury claims for over 30 years. Collectively, our lawyers have over 70 years of experience. Many law firms who advertise in our field also advertise in Probate, Criminal, and other areas of law, but this is not our practice strategy. Our personal injury attorneys specifically handle personal injury and wrongful death cases, and because of this, you can feel confident that you are hiring an elite team of lawyers.

We Take Cases to Trial
Insurance companies recognize the lawyers who will “go to bat” for their clients and “take it all the way”. Likewise, insurance companies also know which lawyers would rather settle a case despite it being worth more than the insurance company’s “top offer”. Getting the best possible results for your case includes having a lawyer with a great reputation who is not afraid to take on the BIG insurance companies. We are not afraid to take cases to trial. This fact forces the insurance companies to take our demands seriously. The insurance companies keep track of the lawyers who never take cases to trial, and as a result they often make lower, unfair offers to the clients represented by those lawyers. At Carey Leisure & Neal, while many cases do settle, we prepare every case as if it is headed to trial, and the insurance companies know it.
You will be hiring a TEAM of attorneys
At Carey Leisure & Neal, we work together as a tenacious team of lawyers. We stratagize together to develop the best plan of action for each of our client’s needs. This communal thought process and idea sharing maximizes success for our clients. We’ve used this method to approach all of our cases for years, and it works. We have handled over 50,000 car crash cases.
We “wrote the book” on personal injury claims in Florida
Our partners, Thomas Carey, Jodi Leisure and Katherine Neal are authors of “A Conversation with Our Clients”. This book was written so that our clients can understand the civil justice system and be better informed about what to expect during the claim process, litigation and trial . Our book takes the reader step-by-step through a case, and gives great insight on what occurs after an accident. All of our clients are given this book upon retaining our firm. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this book, please contact us at 800-927-0400.

You will have your lawyers’ personal cell phone number upon request. We are available to our clients 24/7. We know that after a car crash, you feel overwhelmed due to pain, medical bills, lost wages and endless phone calls and letters from the insurance company. Once you become our client, we take the load off, so that you can feel as stress-free as possible. Communicate with us whenever you need to and concentrate on healing.

After all, lawyers are the only people who should be giving legal advice.

We try our very best to treat you like family. Throughout the entire process, you will be kept informed, receive emails and calls from your lawyer and your paralegal, and you always have your questions answered promptly.
