Glover Law Firm

When I first talked to Glover Law Firm, I was very nervous that I would say the wrong thing.  I didn’t have any experience before my case, and I wasn’t quite sure how to proceed.  There were so many questions that I had and not a lot of other law firms had the answer or even would agree to meet with me without ridiculous legal fees and cover charges.  I was not only able to Live Chat with someone from Glover Law Firm immediately, but they were also more than willing to meet with me in person at no personal cost to me.

When I called their office after my accident, I was instantly treated with respect.  They granted me a free case evaluation and from that meeting, we could work through all my options.  Attorney Glover made me realize that I was settling for less than I really deserved – he helped me see how much I could really do to correct the wrong that had been done to me.  

Of course, it’s easy to trust Attorney Glover when you realize how experienced he really is.  I’m the type of person that values the time and commitment someone puts into their craft. With some newer lawyers, no matter how qualified they seem, I find myself doubting their abilities because of their experience.  Attorney Gordon Glover has been active for over a decade and has been recognized by multiple organizations. He’s also very active in his community – something that a small town person like me truly values. For example, did you know that he still serves on the University of Florida Alumni board?  He also is involved in other outreach programs across Florida like the Rotary Club, Public Education Foundation, and the Boys and Girls Club. Attorney Glover has done the most for his community and his clients.

Another great thing about Glover Law firm is that there are multiple locations, so they can help people all over Florida.  When my best friend needed help in Ocala, I was able to suggest Glover Law Firm to her even though we live so far apart. And you get the same quality service no matter where you go.  After my accident, what I needed the most was consistency – Gordon J. Glover granted that to me.

My friends and I are not the only ones that have had success through Glover Law.  There are a lot of people like me that felt lost after their accident, and Glover Law Firm helped them with their case. A lot of people in the Florida area talked about how welcomed they felt upon stepping into their office and remarked about their kind and professional demeanor.  Reading about other people’s good experiences made it that much either to contact Glover Law during the hardest times of my life.

It took me a long time to realize that I didn’t have to be alone after my accident.  There were people out there that could help me; I just had to find them. That’s why I suggest you contact Glover Law firm as soon as possible after your accident.  You shouldn’t (and don’t have to) handle the stress by yourself.

Defense For Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is considered a misdemeanor offense in some states while in others it can become a felony charge. As a misdemeanor, the person charged with reckless driving can serve jail term of up to a year. If a felony, the jail term could exceed one year. According to the website of Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, reckless drivers can be held financially liable for the pain and suffering they can cause.

In order to prevent serving jail time, you need to have a solid defense. Your attorney can cite several reasons for you not to be charged and here are some of them:

1. You Were Not The One Driving

While the prosecution will prove that you were driving the vehicle, your lawyer will prove otherwise. Unless the plaintiff is able to show evidence that you were the driver, chances are you will be acquitted and will not get to jail.

2. Matter of Necessity

In a necessity defense, the lawyer will prove that the reckless driving was due to an emergency that existed; that the emergency presented a threat to the driver or a third party; and that the driver did not create the emergency.

3. Argue for Negligence

Negligence on its own is insufficient to prove reckless driving. Such was the case of People v Allison, when a pedestrian crossed a highway waving a fishing pole at the driver to get their attention. The driver made a U-turn towards the pedestrian forcing him to jump out of the way for fear of getting hit. As a result, the driver left 10 feet of skid marks before turning his car around and driving off. The court ruled that the driver only showed negligence and not a wanton disregard for the rules of the road.

4. Disprove Your Alleged Speed

Reckless driving involves speeding at a rate considered as wanton disregard for safety of others. The prosecution must prove that the equipment used for measuring your speed was recently calibrated and was used correctly. In addition, they should also prove that your speed was being displayed in your car.

5. Proper Signage

The prosecution panel must prove in court that there were sufficient and proper signs and that you were driving in excess of the speed limit.
