Areas of Practice

  • PERSONAL INJURY AND DEATH If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed by someone else’s negligence, in an automobile, airplane, or boating accident, by a defective tool or product, or in a nursing home, you need the advice and assistance of an experienced law firm. When the person at fault is represented by an insurance company, that insurer is protecting the interests of its insured, and has no obligation to act in your best interest.

  • AVIATION LAW If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed in an aviation accident, we can help. Aviation law embodies both state and federal laws and regulations which are peculiar only to aviation. Jerry H. Trachtman is Board Certified by the Florida Bar to specialize in aviation law, served on and chaired the Florida Bar Aviation Law Certification Committee (which conducts peer review and tests lawyers who desire Aviation Law Board Certification), and has been a pilot for over 40 years.

  • SPACE LAW With the era of commercial space flight moving forward and gaining speed, private enterprise is developing and soon will be flying passenger and cargo carrying spacecraft.  Whether it is the carriage of so-called “space tourists” on suborbital (and eventually orbital) flights, taking NASA astronauts and cargo to the International Space Station, or related commercial space activities, compliance with regulations promulgated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is essential for the launch, flight, and re-entry of commercial spacecraft.  We know the FAA’s requirements, and can assist in obtaining necessary licenses and approvals.
  • FAA/DOT ENFORCEMENT If you are a pilot, mechanic or other FAA certificate holder and the FAA or DOT has advised you of a possible violation of regulations, the time period within which you must act to preserve your rights is limited. Call now for a free consultation.
  • CRUISE SHIP INJURIES If you have been injured onboard a cruise ship, or while embarking or disembarking, the time to make a claim is limited. Most cruise tickets provide that a claim for injuries must be brought within one year from the date of the injury. Call now for a free consultation.
