Depend on HD Law Partners for help in any of the following areas:

Insurance Coverage Disputes

Our insurance coverage attorneys are experienced in assisting our clients with settlement of claims, bad faith insurance defense, and coverage litigation. When an insured party has a loss, not all of the duty falls on their insurance company. If the insured does not take proper steps, they may not qualify for coverage. For example, a policyholder’s duties after a loss require them to take proper steps in ensuring that no further damage comes to their property. Duty after a loss also requires the insured to contact the police if the property damage or loss occurred due to illegal activity, contact their insurance provider as soon as possible, provide their insurance company with all of the information the insurance company deems necessary at a reasonable level, provide proof of the loss, cooperate fully with their insurance provider, and more, according to the Claims Journal.

HD Law Partners is recognized throughout Florida as a leader in coverage litigation, settlement of claims and bad faith insurance defense.

Business & Corporate Law

The firm’s business litigators engage in every aspect of business and corporate disputes, from pre-suit injunctions to protect trade secrets and enforce noncompete agreements, to collections and enforcement of judgments and mechanic’s liens. HD Law Partners handles real estate and construction matters, as well as corporate matters involving fiduciary obligations of directors and officers and shareholder derivative suits.

We handle a wide variety of trials and appeals in state and federal courts on behalf of individual and corporate clients. We work hard to favorably resolve business and commercial disputes.

Family Law

In addition to handling business legal matters and liability defense, the firm maintains a robust family law practice across central Florida, helping clients through the processes of legal separation and divorce, as well as post-divorce modifications and enforcement issues. The firm makes sure clients are well-represented in decisions regarding timesharing and parenting, alimony and property division, with particular expertise in high-value and complicated assets and debt structures. The firm’s comprehensive family law practice includes negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements and marital agreements, and representing clients in matters concerning domestic violence allegations.

Unfortunately, people grow apart, and some were never meant to be together in the first place. The compassionate and fair attorneys at HD Law Partners understand what you are going through, and will fight on your behalf for your most beneficial outcome. An experienced family law attorney can help make divorce, and the subsequent legal matters that it brings, as less stressful and traumatic as possible. While the presence of children does not affect the likelihood of divorce, according to recent research at Brown University, when children are present the entire process of legal separation becomes more complex.

We’re committed to helping families navigate through difficult times and build a new futures for themselves and their children.

Liability Defense

The firm provides strong, effective defense in personal injury liability and property damage claims in the areas of auto liability, trucking liability, premises liability, products liability and homeowners’ insurance. We conduct a thorough investigation in order to establish the underlying facts and fully assess the strength of all available claims and defenses, the settlement value of the claim and the risk/benefit of trial. We engage in settlement negotiations, mediation, trial and appeal on liability matters, as well as litigating insurance coverage disputes , allegations of insurance bad faith, and claims for extra-contractual liability.

Homeowners’ Associations

The firm works closely with HOA boards and property managers to maintain compliance with applicable laws and regulations, to settle internal matters and resolve member disputes. The firm prepares, reviews and updates declarations, by-laws and related documentation. As experienced litigators, HD Law Partners can assist in collections, CC&R violations, and the prompt resolution of property-related disputes.

Commercial Litigation

HD Law Partners engages in the full range of commercial litigation on behalf of business owners and companies throughout central Florida, including breach of contract disputes as well as business torts involving allegations of fraud, unfair competition, tortious interference, deceptive trade practices and more. Given the innumerable daily contacts and interactions with customers, employees, contractors, vendors, suppliers, etc., disputes are inevitable. HD Law Partners works to resolve those disputes at the earliest possible stage, with the goal of a resolution that is efficient and economical, yet always in the client’s best interests.

Resolve Your Tampa Or Sarasota Legal Matter Efficiently, Economically and Expeditiously

One school of thought says that the “D” in “Defense” stands for “Delay.” At HD Law Partners, we prefer “Diligence.” Rather than trying to drag out litigation and outspend or outlast the other party (which increases the cost of defense considerably), the attorneys at HD Law Partners believe their clients’ interests are best served by resolving their matter efficiently, economically and expeditiously. We work closely with the client to understand their needs, goals and budget, and we devise and coordinate a plan that makes sense and leads to success.

With offices in Tampa, Orlando and Sarasota, HD Law Partners maintains a strong presence throughout West Central Florida. Call our experienced insurance, business & family attorneys at 813-253-5333 or 800-876-3392 to get the representation you deserve and the results you desire.

  • My wife and I had never been involved in a lawsuit before and were very nervous about the whole thing but the professionals at HD Law Partners made us feel comfortable right from the start and were up front about everything. From our lead attorney Ray Haas to Patrick and Thomas to our paralegal Martha we felt totally respected, even though our case was small in comparison to others we were made to feel important and that we mattered. Phone calls and e-mails were answered promptly and anytime we had a question someone was there with an answer and we couldn't have asked for better representation and our thanks goes out to the entire team at HD Law Partners for doing such an amazing job for us!
