Burlington & Rockenbach Secures Significant Victory in the Florida Supreme Court

Partners Phil Burlington, Bard Rockenbach, and Andrew Harris secured a monumental decision in the area of insurance bad faith from the Florida Supreme Court. In Harvey v. GEICO, the Court held that an insurance company had breached its duty of good-faith towards its insured in handling a claim after a fatal car accident. The Supreme Court’s decision clarified the law on insurance companies’ duties towards their insureds.
We are happy to have had the opportunity to help our deserving client obtain justice in this case after twelve years and numerous trial and appellate proceedings. This great result never could have happened without the talented trial attorneys in the case, including Sean Domnick, Fred Cunningham, and Greg Yaffa of Domnick, Cunningham, and Whalen and Harry Shevin of Shevin Law Firm PLLC.
