Helping injured citizens and bereaved families is my life's work and the focus of my firm. "Our family fighting for your family" is my firm's slogan. My wife and I fight every day for financial settlements for personal injury victims and families who lost loved ones due to the negligence of others.
My wife Debi and I founded the firm in 2003 to serve the community of Southern Florida. A community that my family has come to know, love, and live in. Growing up and attending public schools in Plantation, Florida, I am proud to headquarter my firm in the community that helped raise me.
I represented a person who was injured in an auto accident caused by the defective tires on their vehicle. This person suffered a serious brain injury as a result of the accident. I was able to get an award of $1 million for this individual.
In another case, I represented an individual who severely hurt their shoulder after slipping and falling while going about their daily routine. The court found negligence to be the cause of the person's fall, and I was able to get $135,000 for my client.

My law firm was founded on the principles of honesty, integrity, and a commitment to the rights of the injured, so I believe that it is very important that clients get all the factual information they can to better understand their rights. The library section on my website is a place where prospective clients can educate themselves on a variety of legal issues.
When you bring your case to my law firm, you will either be dealing with me, my wife, or both of us. We will review any document you prepare, free of charge.
Being in a serious accident or losing a cherished loved one can be a difficult and confusing time, especially when it comes to knowing whom you can trust. While we can try to give you the tools to convincingly convey your side of the story in court, many individuals are surprised to find how comforting it is to have an experienced expert out in front fighting for them in what can be a tough battle.
Previously, I worked for the Southern Florida personal injury firm of Rosen & Monaldi, which became Rosen & Chalik after I became a managing partner. It was there where I worked with my wife, attorney Debi Chalik, for the first time. We later took over the firm after the founding partner retired. I am proud to have worked exclusively in personal injury my entire legal career.
I have three wonderful children with my wife and founding partner of this firm, Debi Chalik. I can really empathize with people when something happens to injure their child.
My strengths are love for and fascination with the law, and the fact that I cannot help but take every case personally. I am a straight shooter and a family man.Personal interests:
I am a husband and a father to three wonderful children. I am the president of my synagogue, Temple Kol Ami Emanu. I love to play tennis; I actually attended my undergraduate university on a full tennis scholarship. I am interested in politics, and interned for CNN during the Persian Gulf War.
