  • "I was well pleased with the way it was handled. I was kept informed. They treated me like anybody would want to be treated. I have really nothing bad I can say about it at all. The kept me up to date on everything...I'd recommend you to anyone."

    John's Car Crash Testimonial (Transcript) The accident took place on Thanksgiving Day. It'll be three years ago this past Thanksgiving. It was at 102nd and Seminole Boulevard. I was stopped at the stoplight. There was two cars in front of me and I was the third car. Coming south on Seminole, I never saw the person, hit me about a fourth way into the intersection. I went airborne a little bit, scooted me across the pavement, and then I was upside down in my SUV. All I can say is thank God it was a heavy SUV. It was a Mercedes, or I wouldn't be talking to you here. The glass, all the airbags, all that, the biggest thing I got was a cut on my left arm and my back. That's the main thing. I turned black and blue all the way from my neck all the way down to my waist for about two months. But other than that, I got through it okay.  Most people like me that haven't been in an accident, never had an accident, even though I'm familiar with lawyers and all that, you don't know exactly, if you will, what you're doing. Once you get connected like I did with your law firm, it's the way it was handled. The idea that they had a video to show me, to tell me what to do and not to do, because this is not my expertise. As a result, I, if you will, was very well briefed. I was told what to do, what not to do. I said I was well pleased with it. I thought it was very professional.  Jennifer was the paralegal. From my point of view, I thought I was treated very professionally. I did not have a big claim, but I don't care how large it could have been. I was well pleased with the way it was handled. I was kept informed. They treated me like anybody would want to be treated. I have really nothing bad I can say about it at all. The kept me up to date on everything. I was well pleased with it. Very well. Had I to do it over again or if I, thank God hopefully I won't have another accident, there'd be no place else to go. I would advise anybody to go. From my point of view, you're very professional. I said I was very well pleased. I'd recommend you to anyone.

  • "From his depositions to the medical witnesses to his cross-examinations to his closing, Paul just ran that courtroom. It was very impressive. He made it easy. He made a horrible process easy. I would definitely recommend him and this law firm."

      Ron and Renee's Rear-End Car Wreck (Transcript) Renee: So I was taking my children to school. We were stopped behind another vehicle, waiting on a school bus on the opposite side of the road to load kids from an apartment complex, and got hit from behind while we were stopped. My seat back kind of collapsed. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) estimated that he was going 40 miles an hour, so there were no brakes, no nothing, just slammed into the back of my car. At the time, I was very active. I was running and going to the gym. Because it's a lower back pain, that kind of stopped. Ron: I called around to a couple of law firms, and I think maybe I spoke with Monica. And based off of that, I decided that this one seemed like the proper firm for us. Monica pretty much is on top of it from the very start. Renee: Peggy also kept us well informed, and Jennifer's always been a great coordinator or things for us. Ron: Pretty much the whole process we were kept informed. Monica let us know what was going on. Paul was great. Renee: He's a great guy. He's very detailed oriented. He was amazing during the trial, he didn't miss a beat. Preparing us for trial was great. When I got up to testify, it was like I was sitting here in the office, talking with him in the office. Ron: Every time he got up, you kind of felt relaxed because you knew it was going to go right. Renee: Having somebody who can put you at ease, even if you're not going to go to trial, if you're just going to go to mediation or whatever, having somebody who can put you at ease from the beginning of the process to the end of whatever process it is, is great. Ron: Now usually it's nerve-racking. You just didn't feel it with Paul. I enjoyed the days in court. Seriously. I was only up on the stand for maybe 15, 20 minutes, but it lasted two and a half, three days. I enjoyed those days in court. He got up there. He's not a huge guy, and it was just him against a couple lawyers with the insurance company. And he just, he was like a giant out there. I mean it was like a Perry Mason moment, you know what I mean? I mean seriously. Renee: It was almost like he could predict what they were going to say, so he had his response ready. Ron: From his depositions to the medical witnesses to his cross-examinations to his closing, Paul just ran that courtroom. It was very impressive. He made it easy. He made a horrible process easy. I would definitely recommend him and this law firm.

  • I'd highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs an honest, aggressive attorney.

    Mr. Angelo O. of Largo was badly injured in an auto accident at the intersection of Ulmerton and Belcher Roads in 2005. The accident forced him to have back surgery. He was represented by Attorney Paul Cavonis. Suit was filed in the case and the matter settled a few weeks after a successful mediation. "I was very pleased with Paul's work. He's an honest guy. He says what he means. Everything I've ever asked him to do he's done and done well. I'd highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs an honest, aggressive attorney."
