As the founder and owner of a renowned employment defense firm, Adi Amit may be the busiest defense attorney in South Florida when it comes to the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) overtime and minimum wage law. Currently, nearly one in every seven employment related lawsuit is filed in the U.S. Southern District of Florida . Adi explains, “Nowadays, there is a significant need in South Florida for defending businesses and their owners against overtime and minimum wage claims brought by current and former employees. We have an advantage because we have handled countless of such cases in the past few years – from dismissal to successful jury trials – and can offer this in-court experience and lessons to our clients.”
Adi’s law firm, Defender of Business, specializes in assisting small and medium-sized companies with defense strategies against a rising wave of employment related litigation cases. Adi points out that his firm gives these smaller companies a strong voice in defending themselves against different areas of employment and labor cases including discrimination, harassment, “me too” claims, unpaid wages, FMLA claims and non-compete agreements. Adi is passionate about working hard and defending his clients and he is proud to be their strong voice in court. He always has their best interest in mind in everything that he does.
While they are a highly successful and well-known firm in South Florida, they still offer affordable rates that are fully disclosed upfront to all of their clients. This allows them to completely focus on their clients and relieve any worry associated with their fees. As a result of their honesty, hard work and dedication, they develop strong relationships and friendships with their clients who then go onto refer their services to other businesses. The firm also offers free seminars to businesses that cover various areas of employment law and you do not have to be a client to attend one of these seminars.
Born in Israel, after completing his military service, Adi graduated from Florida International University and received his J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law. He worked as an associate attorney and then became a partner at his last firm before using his experience and knowledge in employment law to found his own firm. As founder and owner of a firm that tirelessly defends businesses, Adi adds, “We always support the business side. When people see our name and logo – they don’t confuse who we are or what we do – we defend businesses.”
Adi is a member of the Florida Bar Association, the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, and was featured as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers.com.
