Practice Areas

The firm focuses on three primary practice areas--legal malpractice, business and civil litigation, and mediation/ADR (alternative dispute resolution).

Legal Malpractice

The firm represents individual and business clients, usually on a contingent fee basis, when negligence or breaches of fiduciary duties on the part of their attorney or law firm causes them serious financial harm. Please call for a free consultation. Mr. Olsen is licensed to practice law in both Florida and Texas and welcomes the opportunity to review significant legal malpractice cases in either state.

Business and Civil Litigation

The firm handles various business and civil litigation matters, on either an hourly or contingent fee basis, depending upon the nature of the case. These litigation matters often involve one or more of the following: Breach of Contract, Fraud, Deceptive Trade Practices, Trade Secrets, Tortious Interference, Commission Disputes, Insurance Bad Faith, and Breach of Fiduciary Duty.

Mediation/Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Mr. Olsen began his mediation practice in 1998 in Florida as a Circuit Civil Mediator certified by the Florida Supreme Court.  On returning to Texas in 2012, he took the steps necessary to become a Credentialed Mediator, certified by the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association, and is expanding his Texas mediation practice while maintaining his legal malpractice and business litigation practices.  Whether representing one of the parties, or as a mediator, Mr. Olsen has been involved in numerous mediations involving cases as diverse as breach of contract, fraud, deceptive trade practices, trade secrets, tortious interference, commission disputes, insurance bad faith, legal malpractice, and breach of fiduciary duty.

Personal Injuries, Medical Malpractice, and Wrongful Death

Mr. Olsen will also meet with you to review cases involving serious personal injuries, medical malpractice and wrongful death.  He has a network of firms and colleagues in Texas and Florida, and will generally co-counsel these types of cases with (or sometimes refer them to) a trusted and successful firm that specializes in these areas.
