We live in an increasing complex and regulated world. At the Law Offices of Gold and Parado, our goal is not to further complicate your business or personal life, but rather to help you successfully navigate through whatever challenges you, your family or your business are facing, and to help avoid unpleasant surprises. Since 1980, I have diligently provided top quality legal services and counseling to businesses and families at honest and reasonable rates. My firm always attempts to first understand our client’s issues and desires, jointly define realistic objectives and then accomplish these goals in a professional and efficient manner. We believe our close and open relationship with each individual client, and the drive and desire to be successful on every case as if it were our own, is the main reason that we have many clients who have remained with us for well over 30 years, many of whom I am fortunate to consider close friends.
At the Law Offices of Gold and Parado, we believe it is a privilege as well as a great responsibility to be trusted with matters that affect our client's financial and emotional well being and happiness. For the past 35+ years I have looked forward to coming to work each day, facing new challenges and meeting new clients.
While I look back with fondness over some of the bigger matters I handled over the years, such as multi-year battles with Bell South and AT&T before the Federal Communications Commission and the Florida Public Service Commission, regulatory disputes before numerous state departments of insurance, appeals before numerous federal and state appellate courts including the United States Supreme Court and complex litigation and arbitration matters throughout the country, I have also enjoyed drafting and enforcing employment contracts or shareholder agreements, negotiating and closing on the sale of a business or home, helping clients meet their estate planning or retirement needs, defending personal injury lawsuits, and helping a client/friend sue a wedding photographer who nearly ruined his daughter’s wedding and recovering the deposit plus attorney’s fees.
Whether you are looking to defend or prosecute a multi-million dollar claim or evict a tenant, draft or review a contract, purchase or sell a home or business, resolve a shareholder or business dispute, take care of estate planning or need assistance with a telecommunications or regulatory matter, our firm can professionally and competently address your needs. I have been rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubble for over 20 years; Top Lawyer by The South Florida Legal Guide for approximately 10 years, Top Lawyer by the Miami Herald, and Best List of Recommended Defense Attorneys for numerous years. It would be my pleasure to discuss your legal needs and show you how we can assist you in accomplishing your goals.
