These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Almost 30 years with easily 90 percent of his practice devoted to medical malpractice claims. Ron has a superior technical knowledge of Florida's medical malpractice code and the esoteric nuances and case decisions construing it. Moreover, he is the son of a cardiologist and as a result of his upbringing, as well as his almost 30 years of medical malpractice litigation, he has extensive knowledge of a variety of disciplines of medicine and the standards of care governing physician, nurse, and hospital conduct and behavior, policies, and procedures. No one in Florida has a superior base of knowledge and experience in the field of medical negligence claims. Only someone with a personal vendetta or bone to pick would disagree with this objective assessment of Ron's long history of expertise in this field.”
