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 is AV Peer Review rated* in the LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, which reflects the highest rating bestowed upon a firm by its peers in the legal community.
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 valued clients. Client surveys and other means are used to regularly measure client satisfaction. 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 which is designed to maximize the effectiveness of the firm in representing all client's interests. With offices in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, West Palm Beach and Orlando, we handle defense matters in the South Florida area, as well as throughout the State, with ease.
Our experienced 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. The firm maintains an ongoing commitment to supporting the continuing education of our attorneys, paraprofessionals and highly-skilled staff.
The firm also encourages, and is actively involved in, pro bono public legal work in a number of areas. 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.
