Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Greenspoon Marder has opened a new office in Stuart, Florida, adding four attorneys.
The 72-lawyer firm added its sixth office to accommodate two new lawyers who joined the firm and have practices in Stuart, said partner Gerald Greenspoon. Chad Paiva heads up the consumer and bankruptcy practice, and Marc Cohen leads the collections practice.
The firm also added family law specialists Mark Rabinowitz and Elizabeth Tener.
The firm anticipated the devastating drop in real estate and corporate business that hit Florida and elsewhere and began preparing more than two years ago. Looking to diversify, the firm began representing lenders in residential foreclosures, and beefed up its personal injury plaintiff practice, which is immune to a downturn in the economy.
Additionally, lawyers practicing in real estate and corporate were switched to other areas, such as bankruptcy workout and litigation.
Established in 1981, Greenspoon Marder has Florida offices in Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Aventura, Boca Raton and Stuart.
