The Florida Supreme Court Expands Rights of Biological Parents

 An op-ed by Tripp Scott's Douglas Reynolds and Henny Shomar. As published in the DBR.

Connor Perkins knew he was the father. He was there when his girlfriend Treneka Simmonds gave birth to their child in February 2013. He took the child to doctor’s appointments, enrolled the child in daycare, voluntarily paid child support and was referred to as “daddy” by the child. Perkins claimed that he was not aware that the mother was in an intact marriage, which resulted in him being denied parental rights with the child by the Broward Circuit Court.

Deeper Roots, Expanded Reach

The law firm of May, Meacham & Davell PA has moved six attorneys and staff to join the Tripp Scott team.

A merger was not on the radar for either firm. Tripp Scott has focused on organic growth by adding one attorney at a time. May, Meacham & Davell (MMDPA) had declined offers before.
