Aronfeld Trial Lawyers In high school one of my dearest childhood friends, Carrie Marcus, was diagnosed with incurable cancer. At the time, I did not even know what that meant. She missed most of our senior year. And when she came back to school she parked in a handicap space. She did not have the handicap decal and the school gave her a number of parking tickets. One day in class, she was telling this to our teacher. He told her to tell the principal. I asked if I could go and help her. I went to the principal and “argued” her case. He could see that she was ill, far more than I realized and agreed to waive the parking tickets. She thanked me for speaking for her. That event stuck with me in my life. I had an enormous feeling of happiness, knowing that I was able to help my friend. I was always told that I would make a good lawyer. No one ever said that I would make a good anything else. Not a good bicycle racer, football player, cook or doctor. It was always, “you would make a good lawyer”. I was not sure I wanted to go to law school. I was intimidated by the big books that law students dragged around. My father told me I would love law school, I thought he was crazy since I always had hated school. He was right, I was wrong. Once in law school I decided that I liked the idea of representing people. Real Estate Wills and Bankruptcy never appealed to me. Upon graduation from law school I decided to focus all of my energies into the representation of the weak, the hurt, the forgotten and those who cannot speak for themselves. I have refused representing big business, insurance companies or the government. To me, every client is Carrie Marcus and I am proud of it.

Correlated to this rise in the use of smartphones is the number of distracted driving car accidents in FL.
For the most part, the tractor trailers, semi-trucks, delivery vans, buses, and construction vehicles that qualify as commercial vehicles complete their routes without issue or disruption, but not always.
