When you are injured because of the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, justice requires that the responsible party or parties be held accountable for their actions. Unfortunately, these negligent parties rarely act to make things right unless they are forced to, and insurance companies dealing with people who are not represented by an attorney routinely offer compensation that is far below the actual value of the claim. We have handled enough auto accidents and other personal injury cases to know how much you are owed, and we will represent you with the insurance company to get a fair and reasonable settlement. We are also tough and experienced litigators who will take your case to court and all the way to a jury verdict if that’s what it takes to obtain justice for you.
Your property, your liberty and your very life may be in jeopardy if you are charged with a serious felony in Florida. The legal team at Eighmie Law Firm has prosecuted and defended people charged with all sorts of criminal offenses, including theft and property offenses, drug crimes, assault and violent crimes, DUI, juvenile offenses and probation violations. We are by your side at every step of the process from your arrest all the way to trial. Our skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyers give you the advice you need to make the best decisions about your defense. In addition, we provide strong, aggressive representation to help you get the best outcome possible in your situation.
Divorce, child custody, and other family law matters can be highly emotional and highly contested issues that are difficult to resolve. Whether working out an amicable agreement at the negotiating table or litigating in court, we constantly have the best interests of you and your children foremost in our minds. We know that even after divorce, you may need to have a civil, working relationship with your ex-spouse for years to come. We strive to create lasting, practical solutions that work for you and your family, always vigilant to protect your rights and achieve the best outcome possible that meets your needs.
Veterans Disability Appeals
Supporting our troops is something the lawyers at Eighmie Law Firm, P.A. take very seriously. Hugh is a veteran himself, and Shannon grew up in a military family. Together, they know the sacrifices our military men and women make for their country. Unfortunately, the promises our country makes to its veterans are not always fulfilled. Thousands of veterans’ disability claims are denied or rejected every year, despite the fact that this assistance is urgently needed and based on valid claims. If you believe you were unfairly turned down for disability benefits, call our office for a free consultation. We represent veterans in disability appeals when their claims are denied. Let us help you in your time of need.
Estate planning is not something everybody thinks about or thinks they need. But the truth is that estate planning is for everyone. If you die without a will, a probate judge looks to state law to decide where your property should go, which can include people you didn’t want it to go to, or to the state. If you left behind minor children but didn’t leave a will, the court can decide who will raise your kids, which could be an institution or people you don’t know or trust. If you become ill but haven’t taken the time to create the legal documents that spell out the healthcare decisions you would want to make, or who should make the decisions regarding your medical care and financial affairs, these decisions will be made anyway, and they may not be the ones you would want. Take the time to sit down with the attorneys at Eighmie Law Firm, and let us draft a will that lets you make the important decisions for yourself and your family.
Serving the People who Serve our Country
Shannon Henne-Eighmie grew up in a military family, and Hugh Eighmie served two tours with the Marines, including prosecuting and defending military crimes through the Navy Judge Advocate General’s office. Our lawyers understand the unique legal issues confronting military service members and their families, from getting extra time to respond to legal proceedings under the Service members’ Civil Relief Act, to dividing a military pension in a divorce, to appealing a denial of a claim for veteran disability benefits. If you or your spouse are a current or former member of the military, trust Eighmie Law Firm to provide skilled and knowledgeable advice and representation with your legal needs.
