Medical Marijuana: Employee Rights v. Employer Rights

Just a few years ago, Florida voters passed Amendment 2 – Medical Use of Marijuana.

Florida law has changed much, and changed quickly in this area – from Frye testimony to Daubert – and…

The Workers’ Compensation “One-Time Change” – Time for a Second Look

Friday, September 27, 2019 at 12:00! Even though Florida’s workers’ compensation claimants have had the statutory right for a “one-time change” in treating physicians since 2001, nearly twenty years of case law show us that we do not know all that we may need to know in this nuanced area of the law. This Lunch…

Un-Friendly: Social Media and Judicial Recusal

This latest webinar from Lunch and Learn With Tim provides the legal framework for the when and…

Our Story

Yep, I’m the speaker with the sneakers! Thanks to a comical wardrobe malfunction several people know me for my peculiar conference attire.

Tim graduated from the University of South Florida first with a degree in English, then a Master’s Degree in English Education. He taught English at USF and then at Admiral Farragut Academy (and, yes: I’m afraid spelling still counts!). Then he became a lawyer.
