Home > About Us
Luks, Santaniello, Petrillo & Jones is a Florida Insurance Defense firm committed to preserving the American system of fairness and justice. We defend businesses and their insurers from both Liability (A/GL, A&E, BAP, CGL, D&O, E&O, E&S, P&C, PL, PLL, JUA, XS and EC) and Workers' Comp claims. We also offer Medicare reporting, MSA and lien resolution services. Our team of 40 litigators reside in 7 offices in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Tallahassee. We are members of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM).
Business owners and their insurers face extraordinary challenges. Our clients are increasingly faced with frivolous, exaggerated or overreaching claims. Foreign competitors that do not share America's commitment to regulate and promote fair labor standards, equal opportunity and tort liability enjoy a competitive cost advantage over American businesses. Our goal is to provide our clients with cost effective resolutions to defend these claims and ensure they obtain equal justice in the courtroom. When we are liable and settlement is the right course of action, we will procure a resolution on the most favorable and reasonable terms. However, when our clients need protection from overzealous litigants, our team of AV® Preeminent™ Rated and Board Certified Civil Trial partners stand ready to aggressively defend your case through discovery and trial. The Florida Jury Verdict Reporter has published and reported more than 100 of our verdicts evidencing our success to this commitment.
We strive to achieve recognizable results as we know a strong reputation in trial goes a long way in resolving claims quickly and reasonably. Luks and Santaniello was named a 2012 Fortune 500 "Go-To" Law Firm by ALM. The firm was also named in 2008 and 2009. The Florida Daily Business Review selected founding partner, Daniel Santaniello and Orlando Managing partner, Paul Jones, as "Most Effective Lawyers" Finalists in 2007 for a DEC action they won in a Wrongful Death case that changed the Florida legal landscape for rental car companies. The Daily Business Review has also ranked us a Top 50 Florida firm for the last 3 consecutive years.
We endeavor to provide our clients an aggressive, cost effective defense as we understand the economics and challenges facing our clients. We prioritize strategic case planning and compliance to litigation guidelines. We budget litigation plans to guard against inefficiencies and align legal fees with your objectives. We audit results and case handling and monitor statistics to help us better evaluate the effectiveness of reporting and strategies employed. The biggest challenge facing our clients today is the high cost of defending and paying overreaching claims. Our objective is to even the playing field by exposing our opponent's weaknesses while employing an aggressive defense strategy utilizing an incomparable expert impeachment bank.
