Combining this background with a passion for client service, a zeal for efficiency, and a flair for law and courtroom technology, the attorneys of Waterway Black are ideally positioned to achieve best possible results on a small business budget.

FDLAKen Waterway presented as featured product liability speaker at Florida Liability Claims Conference in Orlando, Florida. Ken’s talk was entitled “Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You: Update on Failure to Warn Liability in Post-Sale and Others’ Products Contexts.”

The Florida Liability Claims Conference is presented annually by the Florida Liability Claims Institute in cooperation with the Florida Defense Lawyers Association, which consists of over 1000 member lawyers whose practice primarily involves the defense of civil litigation.

RescissionKelsey Black secures the rescission of a commercial lease and $30,000 in damages (all lease payments, plus damages spent on improvements and permitting fees) on behalf of a business owner tenant who leased an office space that, unbeknownst to him, had never been legally permitted by the City of Hialeah.

The tenant received all of his requested damages without having to file a lawsuit.

Due to a very strong worded demand letter and successful negotiations, Kelsey Black’s client has been made whole by the landlord and able to open his business in a larger, modern space that does not have permitting issues.
