Firm Overview

Firm Overview

In 1995, The Center for Professional Legal Services law firm was founded as a full service law firm that offers a broad range of legal services to individuals, small businesses, and multi-national corporations. Our firm represents clients in Florida, throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. In 2006, the firm name was shortened to CPLS, P.A. law firm to not only reprint its original name, but also to reflect the firm’s philosophy of collaborating in a proactive manner to be leaders in service to our clients.

Industries and Clients

Since its founding in 1995, we have counseled clients across virtually all industry sectors, with a special emphasis in litigation, criminal law, family law, immigration, business law, mediation, real estate, appeals, and class action. We represent middle-market companies as well as a broad range of privately-held businesses, investment firms, financial institutions, accounting firms, physicians, construction firms, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and individuals.

Maximizing Clients’ Success

We help clients capitalize on business opportunities and challenges. Working as partners with them, we look beyond conventional wisdom to find practical, innovative, cost-effective legal solutions and business strategies.

National and Global Reach

We leverage resources and capabilities, delivering seamless service no matter where a client’s needs arise. We have international access to lawyers through our network of affiliate law firms. When clients have needs beyond our usual geographic reach, we are able to meet those needs through the use of quality law firms and lawyers we trust.

Quality Services, Personal Attention

Clients who in the past worked with large national law firms frequently comment approvingly about the service and quality we offer. They also appreciate the partnering approach we take to their legal problems and that our manageable size fosters. We are large and sophisticated enough to handle the most complex legal matters, yet small enough to offer the personal, hands-on approach clients want from their law firm.

We are guided by our six rules of client service:

  1. We will know our clients’ businesses and help them succeed.
  2. We will plan and manage work together with the client from the outset of the engagement.
  3. We will deliver value, effectively managing fees and costs.
  4. We will be highly responsive and consistently proactive in our client communications.
  5. We will ask for client feedback and constantly seek to improve.
  6. We will provide the highest quality counsel.

Exceeding Expectations

Our lawyers and staff work hard at not just meeting clients’ needs but also anticipating them, and understanding their business and industries. We regularly solicit service evaluations from clients through personal interviews and our online survey tool. Using this input, we constantly fine-tune and improve our client service. Client input has also been extremely valuable in helping us develop products that deliver legal services more effectively and cost-efficiently. For example to help serve our clients and non-clients alike, we developed a Preferred Business Client Program, a unique savings program for small to medium sized businesses.
