Jamie started the Broward office of the Firm in 1999 as the Broward Managing Director and served in that position until January 2008, at which time he began serving as the Firm’s Managing Director. He represents both private and public clients in all areas of the law with an emphasis on complex litigation and governmental matters.

Jamie is also an accomplished appellate attorney, appearing before the Second, Third and Fourth District Courts of Appeals. Jamie is a native South Floridian and graduate of Broward’s public school system, and was the valedictorian of his Ivy League law school class.

He stated his career as a commercial litigation attorney at one of the largest law firms in the world, before being appointed the in-house City Attorney for the City of Hollywood in 1994.

Since 1999, Jamie has served as the City Attorney for the cities of Weston and Miramar, and has served as special counsel for numerous municipalities in Palm Beach and Broward Counties. He has presided over more than 1500 City Commission meetings and has spoken at numerous seminars (on subjects addressing a full gamut of issues, including ethics, open government, professionalism and civility, property taxes, government finance and charter review).

Jamie served as lead litigation counsel for several coalitions of local governments challenging State and county laws and actions. For example, he spearheaded lawsuits against the State of Florida invalidating Senate Bill 360 relating to growth management (because it violated the Florida constitution), and removing a proposed constitutional amendment from the 2007 statewide ballot (which would have eliminated Save Our Homes tax protection).

He also represented a coalition of 18 municipalities in a lawsuit against Broward County regarding the distribution of assets of the Resource Recovery Board upon its termination, resulting in a settlement worth approximately $38 million for the municipalities, and represented a County Administrator in a dispute over governmental powers, resulting in a declaratory judgment in favor of the County Administrator.
