Joseph Kaye, who goes by Joey, was the first associate hired to The Moskowitz Law Firm in Coral Gables, Florida, in 2018. Licensed to practice in both Florida and North Carolina, he serves clients nationwide. The firm focuses on multi-state consumer class action litigation, complex commercial litigation, and multidistrict litigation. Joey develops and manages cases, drafts pleadings and motions, takes discovery, and litigates in court. He has handled a broad range of disputes, including consumer protection, insurance, mass tort, products liability, and federal antitrust litigation matters. This considerable range makes him a valuable asset, and has seen him represent many clients, usually average, hard-working people going up against large companies, an intimidating situation that Joey compares to David and Goliath. But, as Joey explains, “the task feels easier because we’re always fighting on the right side.”
Joey graduated magna cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law and was licensed to practice law in Florida at just 23 years old. Today, he counts among his legal accomplishments litigating and helping settle nationwide class action claims against Spartan Race, Inc. in Fruitstone v. Spartan Race, Inc., and in Collins v. Quincy Bioscience, LLC, involving the memory supplement, Prevagen. Joey was also instrumental in obtaining the first order certifying a liability issue class to be upheld by a Florida appellate court in Las Olas Company Inc., et al. v. Florida Power & Light Company, et al., a class action brought on behalf of Florida businesses impacted by a water main break caused during directional drilling operations. The cases Joey works on put everyday people first. “I’m interested in helping them take back some of the power that companies have taken from them, and to make sure they don’t get taken advantage of,” he says.
Before joining The Moskowitz Law Firm, Joey was an attorney at a commercial litigation boutique in Aventura, Florida, where he represented individuals and businesses in cases involving breach of contract, commercial transactions, fraud, business torts, deceptive and unfair trade practices, intellectual property, probate, guardianship, and trust litigation at both trial and appellate levels. One of his many successful cases was Oded Meltzer, et al. v. NMS Capital Group, LLC, et al., a multimillion-dollar suit litigated in federal and state courts in Florida, California, and in commercial arbitration. He also credits his success today to the invaluable experience he had as a judicial intern for Honorable Magistrate Judge, Jonathan Goodman, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
“When a potential client comes in with a problem, usually against a giant, multinational corporation, they feel powerless,” Joey says. “Being able to assist them in bringing these companies to task is very rewarding.” When asked what drives him to continue the tireless pursuit of justice, he credits his wife, Melody, and daughters, Soleil and Mischa, who inspire him every day to keep fighting for those who need it most. “I can feel proud when I tell them what I do for a living, and that I do it all for them, to make the world we live in better. It’s a beautiful thing.”
