Blake Fiery has focused on defending individuals, including those with no insurance coverage, as well as businesses and insurance companies in complex litigation her entire legal career. She understands that often juries are not allowed to know that many being sued, whether individuals or companies, may have no insurance or not enough to cover the claim, making the stakes even higher and the risks of loss more catastrophic to their personal lives and the businesses they took a lifetime to build. While often the victims of the injuries are immediately given sympathy, many times sympathy is also deserved by those wrongfully sued for those injuries. Many do not understand, nor can they, the lives and businesses destroyed by lawsuits until it happens to them.
Beginning with work for Fortune 500, Fortune 100, small businesses, and insurance defense clients and continuing with those clients over the years, she has argued before courts across the state of Florida both simple motions to complex evidentiary hearings, and tried cases across the state.
Blake's experience in medical malpractice and premises liability has exposed her to broad range of topics, impeaching doctors and experts throughout the United States in countless specialties, as well as criminologists, sociologists, neuropsychologists, construction experts, landscape and building code experts, engineers, biomechanical experts, life care planners and vocational experts, among others as well as preparing her own experts in these fields for trial. Her experience in a spectrum of litigated topics exposed her to complex medical issues including catastrophic injuries such as amputations, traumatic brain injuries, orthopedic conditions, chronic pain conditions, gunshot related injuries, neurological injuries among other complicated medical conditions and wrongful death.
Blake's philosophy is that regardless of the injuries or perceived upper hand a Plaintiff may have, every case is worthy of the most thorough evaluation and the most aggressive defense for her clients. Evaluating cases early and alerting her clients as to exposure, budget, and chances of success is critical to working with clients to determine how to proceed with strategy. She also recognizes that in the legal world budgeting is critical to allow clients to be aware of the costs and evaluate how to proceed. Your lawsuit may be one of many lawsuits she has defended, but she recognizes for clients, this is their money, their shareholders' money, their exposure, and their jobs potentially on the line, and she takes every case as seriously as if it were her own business and livelihood. No concern or question is too small to bother her with and she is always available on weekends, evenings, holidays, or anytime for clients' questions, concerns or updates.
