A frequent matter requiring resolution before Florida’s State and Federal courts involves the issue of attorney fees. Florida law contains numerous statutes providing what is known as a “fee shifting” provision, whereby a party prevailing in a law suit may be entitled to recovery of fees from the opposing party. I have participated in lectures to fellow Bar members on several occasions, as well as written articles concerning matters related to the recovery of attorney’s fees, participating most recently in the 2012 seminar “Significant Attorney’s Fees Issues” held at the Orange County Bar Association. My knowledge regarding the potential to recover attorney fees will be put to use for all applicable cases for clients and co-counsel of The Shannin Law Firm.

Moreover, the recovery of attorney fees is traditionally contingent upon provision of expert testimony regarding several factors to be applied to whether the attorney fee sought is reasonable and appropriate. I am available to serve as a fee expert and have done so in over a dozen different state and federal jurisdictions. Most recently, my testimony as a fee expert has been directly cited to by a Federal Judge, who stated that “[t]he Court agrees with Mr. Shannin’s assessment and concludes that the hourly rates for the attorney are reasonable…” B-K Cypress Log Houses, Inc. v. Auto-Owners Ins. Co., 2011 WL615 1502, *2 (N.D. Fla, Nov. 2011). I invite counsel interested in retaining my services as an appellate or circuit court attorney fee expert to contact the Shannin Law Firm to discuss your fee-related litigation.
