Trial Experience

Mr. Porter and Mr. Korvick won a verdict in the police shooting death case of Torres v. Broward Sheriff's Office in which the jury awarded $6.5 million for their clients. This was the largest verdict in a police shooting case in Florida history.

Mr. Porter was the lead trial counsel in a case involving a malfunctioning traffic signal which caused an intersection collision leaving Michelle Tierney, a mother of two small children, severely brain damaged. The lawsuit against Metro Dade County resulted in a $5.6 million recovery and was the largest claims bill ever approved against Dade County by the Florida State Legislature.

Mr. Korvick won the automobile accident case of Fernandez v. Zurich Insurance Co., in which the jury awarded $7.19 million for his clients. In a separate trial, he also defeated the insurance company's denial of coverage for the full verdict. Mr. Korvick is a nationally recognized trial lawyer in aquatic injury cases and has successfully concluded spinal cord injury cases involving failure to warn of shallow pool depths and underwater hazards.

Mr. Porter and Mr. Korvick also won a landmark $1.2 million verdict in Beard v. Island Hoppers in Palm Beach County involving a SCUBA professional's duty to supervise a trained and certified diver.
