If you intend to bring a personal injury claim, your statements and actions throughout the proceedings can have a major impact on the outcome of your case. Putting off your medical evaluation, giving a recorded statement to the insurance company, and posting about the accident on social media are just a few mistakes you should avoid.
Tampa’s Capaz Law Firm Selected to Gator100 for Second Consecutive Year
The Capaz Law Firm was named to the University of Florida’s 2019 Gator100 for the second consecutive year during a ceremony held at UF’s J. Wayne Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
Sponsored by the UF Alumni Association, in partnership with the UF Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center, the Gator100 recognizes the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or led by UF alumni. Ernst & Young calculated each company’s compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the past three years to generate the ranking.
The Capaz Law Firm was founded in 2012 by Tampa attorney Dereck Capaz. After obtaining an undergraduate degree from the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business in 2000, Mr. Capaz went on to receive Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctor Degrees from Stetson University College of Law. Located in Tampa, the Capaz Law Firm focuses its practice in the areas of civil litigation and plaintiff’s personal injury, including tractor-trailer accidents, auto accidents and other catastrophic injuries. The Firm’s continued commitment to providing personalized representation to each client has earned Mr. Capaz recognition as an AV-Preeminent rated attorney, as well as membership to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Florida Super Lawyers.
“It is an honor for the Capaz Law Firm to be recognized by the Gator100 for the second year in a row and humbling to stand amongst such successful businesses,” said Dereck Capaz. “I am forever grateful to the University of Florida for providing an educational experience which laid the strong fundamental bricks upon which I have built my practice.”
“The Gator100 honors UF alumni from across the university who are founding and growing amazing companies around the country,” said Kent Fuchs, president of the University of Florida. “It’s an incredible affirmation of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Gator Nation.”
To qualify for the Gator100, companies must have been in business for five or more years and have had verifiable annual revenues of $250,000 or more every year since 2015. Additionally, the UF alumnus or alumni must have met specific leadership criteria. The full list of the 2019 Gator100 honorees may be viewed at gator100.ufl.edu.
