The Firm is headed by Roy Black, one of the nation’s premier attorneys and selected by his peers for inclusion in "The Best Lawyers in America" every year since 1987. His 40+ years of career achievements include the successful defenses of William Kennedy Smith on a rape charge in Palm Beach; Eller Media (now Clearchannel Outdoor) in charges stemming from the electrocution of a 12-year-old boy in Miami; and Albertson's, Inc., when the State of Florida charged the Fortune 500 company with manslaughter in the death of a shoplifter. Mr. Black’s quality and caliber of work have made him known to the media and American public. He frequently served as a legal analyst for many major network and cable TV news programs, explaining complex cases in terms that laypeople could understand.
Howard Srebnick plays a major role in the Firm’s criminal division, as well as leads the Firm's appellate division, and helps set the standard for the thorough, zealous representation of clients that our practice delivers. He has been recognized as a masterful trial attorney, a reputation won through his handling of complex, high profile cases, many of which have centered on financial charges such as money laundering, racketeering, tax evasion and public corruption. He has twice been heard in the United States Supreme Court, winning a victory in 2016 in the case of United States v. Sila Luis.
In 2021, Jared Lopez assumed the role of the Firm’s Managing Partner, as the former Managing Partner, Scott Kornspan, retired to emeritus status after a 27-year successful career managing the Firm. Mr. Lopez now leads the management of the Firm, continuing to handle criminal and civil litigation with offices in Miami and Boca Raton. Since 2015, Jared assumed the role leading the Firm’s civil division after the retirement of Larry Stumpf, an accomplished civil trial attorney with over 30 years of experience in New York and Florida.
Whether criminal or civil, the Firm uses a team approach to prepare for these cases, often turning the direction of the case. The Firm believes that failing to prepare is akin to preparing to fail. We leave no stone unturned when taking apart every aspect of a case to find the solution. This sort of attention to detail and ability to change course is what makes the Firm successful.
