Election Law

It should come as no surprise that since one of our core practice areas is local government law, we are also experts in the area of election law.  We have successfully represented municipalities in election law and related charter challenges before State and Federal courts, including in those cases challenging ballot initiatives, and election results.  When there is an election challenge somewhere in South Florida, we are on the “short list” of firms hired for these high-profile matters. We have successfully handled mandamus and injunction matters arising out of elections all the way through appeal to Florida’s highest courts and local governments.

In addition, we have handled high-profile injunction cases on behalf of elected officials as well. Election cases move, by design and legal requirement, on a “rocket docket,” so there is virtually no time to get a general practioner who is not well-versed in election law up to speed.  Instead, the client is best served by retaining the services of attorneys like ours, who can jump on the problem immediately and without hesitation, and bring to the table the know-how to devise and implement a winning strategy. These type of cases also implicate ethics and Bar investigations as well, and attract media attention that needs to be managed, requiring the deft-handling and depth of experience that we are uniquely qualified to provide.
