We wrote about this topic a little while back.  That previous blog post firmly stated that the police cannot compel you to provide your phone’s passcode even if the police had a search warrant to search your phone.  Well, that might be changing – slightly. Last week, in State v. Stahl, the Florida Court of Appeals… Read more »

What Our Client's are Saying:

  • When I was injured at work and the insurance company denied my claim, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had medical bills mounting, no income, and three children to take care of. Josh helped me understand the process, how long it would take, and in the end, he got all my medical bills paid and got me paid for my injury. In one of the worst times in my life, it helped to able to count on an attorney who understands the law and who was on my side every step of the way.

  • I got injured when a piece of sheet rock fell on my back. The insurance company doctor said my herniated disc was age related and not because of what fell on my back. The attorneys at Arechigo & Stokka, got me paid until we had to go to court, and in the end got all my bills paid and more. I cannot thank them enough.

  • My car crash was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. The insurance company wanted me to settle my case right away without speaking to an attorney. Friends told me I didn’t need an attorney. After months of trying to do things on my own, I knew I need to obtain the advice of an attorney. I am so glad I did. Josh and John helped me get all my bills paid and get compensated for all I went through with my injury.

  • John represented me so well during my case. Being from a private firm made a difference, he was able to timely respond to my questions throughout and was always available any time day or night. John was always very well prepared and hard working. I highly recommend his assistance as a defense attorney

  • John was very helpful throughout the whole process, kept me up to date and informed on all aspects of the case and we achieved the desired successful result.

  • John and I have worked as opposing counsel in the past and I have observed his work in court many times. John is a highly skilled trial lawyer and I endorse him.
