Firm Overview

Our Team

McIntosh Sawran & Cartaya, P.A. is a team of highly qualified professionals, including lawyers, certified legal assistants, registered nurse consultants and support staff. With three offices in South Florida and one in Central Florida, we provide the accessibility and responsiveness characteristic of smaller firms — but with the professionalism, quality of services, depth of expertise and technology associated with larger organizations. Our team approach, within the office and with respect to client relationships, is an integral part of our working philosophy. These key ingredients enhance the firm's responsiveness and enable us to provide legal services of the highest caliber.

As an objective validation of these assertions, our firm has received the highest average rating available to law firms in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory; this reflects our attorneys’ AV Preeminent® ratings by their peers in the legal community for the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability.

Our Philosophy

We embrace a total quality management philosophy in an ongoing effort to maintain and improve delivery of high-quality legal services. These continuous efforts are designed to enhance the firm's responsiveness and overall level of service to our clients. The cornerstone of the firm's service is to maintain regular and ongoing communication with clients. This aids us in developing an understanding of each client's individual needs. It also helps in fostering a "partnering" relationship between the firm and its clients to maximize the effectiveness of the firm in representing all clients' interests. 

To offer the highest quality representation, the firm maintains an ongoing commitment to supporting the continuing education of our attorneys, paraprofessionals and highly-skilled staff. Because of the great benefits to our team and our clients, we have also been dedicated to diversity in recruitment, hiring and retention efforts since our founding in 1989.

Our Trial Lawyers

Our experienced Florida trial lawyers are admitted to practice in both State and Federal Courts including the Florida Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of the United States. They have served in prominent positions with voluntary bar associations and numerous professional associations, and have written and lectured on a wide variety of legal and medico-legal topics. Learn more about our founders and firm history.

Our Service to the Community

Our service to the public, at no charge, includes guardian ad litem, representation of minor children in custody disputes, outreach community program volunteerism and other notable projects sponsored by the state bar, local bar and national charitable organizations.
