Kubicki Draper

Steven Cornman is an accomplished litigator and trial attorney with experience in complex and multi-party civil litigation. He has fiercely defended his clients against lawsuits on a variety of different issues, including construction defect claims, product liability, construction accident claims, condominium association law, toxic tort law and environmental law.

Using  unique legal arguments and a command of case facts, Steven has obtained favorable verdicts and dismissals of claims for corporations, developers, general  contractors, subcontractors, and geologists statewide, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Naples, Melbourne, and Key West. Although too many outstanding results to list here, Steven recently successfully defended a drywall subcontractor at trial in Miami-Dade County against a $35 million property owner claim involving Chinese drywall; and obtained summary judgment in Federal Court for a roofing manufacturer in a lawsuit involving alleged losses exceeding $2 million.

Steven’s successes in and out of the courtroom, as well as the respect he has earned amongst the judiciary and his peers, contributed to him receiving an “AV” rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory -- the highest rating given to practicing attorneys. Steven has also been named a Florida “Super Lawyer” by Law and Politics Magazine, and a Florida “Rising Star” by Florida Super Lawyers Magazine. Steven is a shareholder at the Miami office of Kubicki Draper, and participates in marketing, business development, and legal education.
