    Attorney Profile

    Philip has built his reputation on hard work and dedication, and by placing his clients’ needs above all else.  His clients trust his ability to handle their claim with vigor and compassion, whether through negotiations or at trial. Philip is a tried and true trial lawyer, taking on some of Florida’s most complex cases across the state.  His trial skills and ability to win is known to insurance carriers and defense attorneys alike, helping him achieve maximum results.  Among the hundreds of settlements and verdicts over his career, Philip has obtained multiple 7-figure results, a 7-figure verdict which stands as the second largest verdict in Clay County Florida, and several 8-figure settlements.  Most recently in January 2019, he obtained a $2.5 Million verdict in a negligent security lawsuit on behalf of the children of a hospital employee who was murdered in the hospital employee parking lot.

     

    In addition to the dedicated work on behalf of his clients, Philip enjoys volunteering his time to Florida trial organizations that help promote the importance of our jury trial system, as well as protect the interests of Florida citizens from competing interests of big business.  Philip is currently the 2019 President of the Miami Dade Trial Lawyers Association (MDTLA), an organization that promotes the importance of our local Civil Justice System.  MDTLA honors judges for their dedication to our Civil Justice System, awards scholarships to deserving local law students, volunteers its members to perform community service, and hosts events throughout the year for Miami trial lawyers to stay connected with each other.  Prior to his MDTLA Presidency, Philip served seven years on the Board of Directors of the Florida Justice Association.  He regularly lectures to other trial lawyers across the state at various Continuing Legal Education seminars, and volunteers as a lobbyist in Tallahassee to help educate the legislature on bills that affect injured folks, their families, or the Civil Justice System as a whole.

    • On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Philip Gold will be a speaker at The Florida Justice Association’s 36th annual John Romano’s Workhorse Seminar. Philip will be addressing combating defense tactics where chapter 57 sanctions and grievances are used to try to gain leverage. He will be going into detail on what to do, how to do it and when to do it. John Romano’s Workhorse seminar is an annual event that takes place over the course of four days, featuring 60 renowned speakers, and 50 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits including 5 ethics and 4 technology. In most states, once lawyers are admitted into the bar, they are required to complete a minimum number of CLE. These credits are typically required either annually or biennially. Completion of these credits happen through live classes and can also be received by being a guest lecturer on a panel. This Wednesday attorneys can receive up to 3 years of CLE through this seminar. Legal professionals must continue to learn as they advance in their careers. CLE aids in filling any gaps within a lawyers education and broadening their knowledge while also providing an opportunity to network with legal professionals alike., Guest Speaker, Philip Gold to Present at FJA’s 2021 John Romano’s Workhorse Seminar, John Romano’s Workhorse Seminar, 2021
