Attorneys Serving Broward and Dade Counties

Located in Weston, Florida, Lee H. Schillinger, P.A., has been providing south Florida businesses and individuals with high-quality legal services since 1979.

Business Litigation — Named a Top Attorney by Super Lawyers Magazine

Our founding and principal attorney, Lee H. Schillinger, has many years of experience in litigation as both a plaintiff's and a defense attorney, and uses that experience to achieve the best possible outcomes for clients. He has been named by Florida Super Lawyers magazine as one of the top attorneys in Florida.

One of the factors that sets our law firm apart from others is our willingness to think outside of the box. We never hesitate to implement creative strategies to achieve success in negotiations or at trial. And our in-depth legal research allows us to make novel legal arguments — meaning that we never assume the law is stacked against you, meaning that we will push hard for the solutions that will yield the right kind of results. Always.

Our skilled trial lawyers also team up with knowledgeable experts to strengthen the legal and factual arguments we make. These experts include financial experts, accountants, CPAs and real estate appraisers.

We dig deep into the background of the cases we manage and have the capacity to manage even the most difficult cases with the most complex paper trails. Our law firm uses online legal research tools, e-mail communications and other organization principles to see answers where others only see questions.
