Our Firm

In a landscape of limits, formalities, and criteria that say no, we’re a firm that dares to say yes. We sync a focus on quality with a commitment to client needs. We educate employees and clients alike on the challenges and subtleties ripe in this space. And ultimately, we refuse to back away from even the most challenging of cases.

Overview
In matters of insurance defense, intricacy runs deep and the stakes incredibly high - especially in Florida. We’re Rissman, and we blend a distinct ethos and experience to deliver what clients need most: results.

With five offices and more than 80 lawyers navigating the nuances and demands of insurance defense, we have cultivated an approach that’s truly distinct.

Rissman Resolves

So what makes us different? For starters, there are lawyers who occasionally go to trial. And then there are trial lawyers. With more than 1,500 trials under our belt, we’re proud to be the latter. In short, we’re not going to chicken out.

But our aggressive drive is far from the only thing that sets us apart. Others balloon billable hours, go on tangents, or rush an outcome regardless of client preferences.

Not us. We listen. We focus. We deliver.

In fact, there’s one way we put it time and again:

How Do We Deliver?

We resolve to listen to what our clients want. We resolve to understand their business objectives. We resolve to know this landscape better than anyone else out there. And ultimately, we resolve to deliver outcomes.

How do we deliver? By aligning a distinct suite of capabilities and circumstances to create one of the most powerful firms in the state. By blending the right personalities with a relentless focus on outcomes. By syncing a focus on quality with a commitment to client needs. By educating employees and clients alike on the challenges and subtleties ripe in this space. And ultimately, by refusing to say no.

But this is far from a victory lap. Yes, we’ve been producing powerful outcomes for clients for the past 50 years. And over the course of each passing decade, we’ve added offices, clients, and colleagues.
Now, we’re focused on the future.

So we’ll keep growing people from the get-go. We’ll keep amplifying our appetite for challenges. We’ll keep celebrating trial chops as much as we do credentials. And we’ll keep resolving to produce—and prevail—at the highest level.

As we embark on the next 50 years, we see boundless opportunity. This is just the beginning.

Core Beliefs

Rissman’s expertise can be distilled to four core themes.

The Right Ecosystem

An environment that fosters exceptional lawyers.

First and foremost, we lead with listening rather than presuming. We empower our teams with the training, tactical know-how, and flexibility to deliver results that matter. We favor emotional intelligence over ego. When colleagues champion new ideas, we celebrate them. And when there’s an opportunity for growth and expansion, we start with the team we have, not outsiders or lateral hires. Because that’s the kind of place that breeds powerhouse lawyers.

The Right Experience

We know the nuances of this space exceptionally well.

We’ve spent the past 50 years delivering outcomes for some of the most transformative companies in Florida. During that time we’ve also cultivated uniquely aligned support, seminars, and strategies that invite our clients to align with us—not merely as defense lawyers, but as risk mitigators, business optimizers, and wholly invested partners. It’s an honor and a privilege to lend our decades of experience to this space.

The Right Ethos

A relentless focus on delivering positive outcomes for our clients.

The client leads our efforts from start to finish, and we serve as officers in the name of their needs. That doesn’t mean we follow blindly; it means we’re in it for true value above all. So we get to know our clients’ business. We get to know their philosophies and priorities. And we operate in lockstep to ensure our litigation lens is laser-focused on where the organization wants to go.

The Right Abilities

We can be who our clients need us to be.

Over the course of 1,500-plus trials, we’ve developed highly informed instincts, finely honed skills, and an appetite for ever greater challenges. What we’ve learned above all is that we’re here to deliver peace of mind. So we focus on clear communication. We focus on quality. We deliver on time and on target. And we don’t hesitate to be as aggressive as we need to be to get the job done.
