ABOUT OUR FLORIDA LAW FIRM

Miami Trial Attorneys Representing Clients Nationwide

Since 1984, Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A. has devoted itself to the representation of personal injury and litigation cases. Made up of 7 select attorneys, our firm has 100+ years of combined experience in preparing and trying cases. This immense amount of experience illustrates our partners' investment in law-specifically in the field of personal injury and medical malpractice.

Over the years, we have represented clients from all over Florida, with a reach extending nationwide. Additionally, we have had the opportunity to represent clients internationally from countries such as Indonesia, Australia, the Virgin Islands, France, Monserrat, England, the Bahamas, and Peru.

OUR APPROACH

At Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A., we take a quality-over-quantity approach to our cases. While other firms juggle hundreds of cases and depositions, we handle on average approximately 10 cases per lawyer in order to invest the time, energy, and resources needed for a successful outcome on behalf of our clients. Not only does a limited caseload allow us to move cases along more quickly than most other firms, it also enables us to remain several steps ahead of the defense. This approach has been nationally recognized, leading to two of our own being inducted in the Lawdragon Hall of Fame.

This approach has worked well for our clients, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in recoveries and national recognition for our legal team.
