Scot Strems claims that his law firm is Florida’s most trusted. But the Florida Bar suspended his license while it conducts an investigation into allegations of unethical conduct. One insurer filed a lawsuit saying it had been defrauded out of millions of dollars through fraudulent property claims. These are just allegations —and certainly, insurers have an incentive to attack lawyers who insist they pay claims fairly. Insurance companies have cheated their insureds out of billions of dollars. But that doesn’t excuse lawyer misconduct or fraudulent claims, and we must call out our own. Take cases you believe in, for clients who deserve to win.
