Attorney Bio:

A member of the Florida Bar since 1977, I have represented business organizations and their owners in a wide variety of business dispute and litigation. As a member of the Florida Bar, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, and the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the Eleventh, Tenth and Fourth Circuits, I have tried jury and bench trials and handled appeals for a variety of businesses across Florida. I have handled both the prosecution and defense of arbitration proceedings under AAA’s Commercial and Construction Industry rules along with related court proceedings.

I have represented all of the members of the construction industry: from architects and engineers to general contractors to the core trades (electrical, plumbing, structural, site, HVAC, roofing, glass, millwork, etc.) and the specialty suppliers. I have represented firms that focused on high rise office or hotel or condominium buildings as well as retail, hospitality, residential and governmental developments. Some of my clients were leaders in environmental remediation – from hurricane cleanup of water damage to asbestos removal.

For the last 5 years I have been the managing shareholder of Kass Shuler, P.A., working to diversity our client base and practice areas. While the tools we use to represent our clients have changed over the years, one thing has not changed: our commitment to provide our clients the very highest level of representation in all respects.
