STORM WARNING FOR FLORIDA. Its name is Obamacare.

By Ed Pozzuoli 

If you have lived in Florida for any length of time, two things are certain—hurricane season and hard-fought elections. Right now there is a storm brewing and its name is Obamacare. No one, including candidates, is safe. Florida may prove a bellwether for voting across the country, and its large electoral vote total and congressional delegations might hold the key to a Republican resurgence. As George Will pointed out in his column this week on the Florida special election on March 11, if the Republican prevails, Republicans will construe this as evidence that Barack Obama has become an anvil in the saddle of every Democratic candidate.

The Future Of The Republican Party Is A Winning Message Of Freedom And Growth

By Ed Pozzuoli

At stake isn’t just the future of the Republican Party, but also the future of our country. Just like the broadcast of a sporting event, all of the pundits and media elite provided analysis and play-by-play of the most recent government shutdown and debt ceiling debate, and declared winners and losers. Well the results were clear, the American people lost.

Hertz Relocates To Florida, Signals The Sunshine State Is Open For Business

By Ed Pozzuoli

To people outside the state, Florida’s image is that of beaches and sunshine, of theme parks and family-friendly destinations that are great places to rest, to relax, and to get away from the pressures of the “real world” for a week or so.

That’s not likely to change any time soon. It’s a brand that state leaders have worked for decades to create that has been a boon to our economic prosperity. What people outside the state are starting to realize now is that Florida is also open for business.

President Obama's Economy Continues To Fizzle

By Ed Pozzuoli

The Commerce Department rendered its verdict on the final quarter of President Obama’s first term last week and the results—like most of Obama’s economic policies thus far—were disappointing. While most economists were anticipating anemic 1% growth, gross domestic product actually dropped 0.1%, sliding back yet again into recessionary territory. It was the first such economic contraction in almost four years. Not good. Also, not good was the fact that unemployment ticked up again to 7.9%. These are not the kinds of reports that Obama and his economic team were hoping for just after Inauguration Day—especially not after the trillions spent on fiscal and monetary stimulus.

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.
