We are very pleased to announce that Taras Rudnitsky has earned the Seminole County Pro Bono Attorney of the Year Award for 2012. This award was presented by Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida, which operates in 10 counties throughout Central Florida. It is based, in part, on the number of hours an attorney provides for pro bono representation of clients in our community.
We are very proud of this award. We are also proud of our providing pro bono representation to numerous consumers since we first opened our law practice more than 14 years ago. We would also like to thank everyone else who also donates their time by giving back to their community. The photo below shows Taras and Tina Rudnitsky, along with the award plaque.

Our client went looking for a reliable and dependable used car from Grimaldi Enterprises, LLC in Daytona Beach, Florida. Although she put a deposit on the car they recommended, Grimaldi Enterprises did not provide the car to her right away, but insisted that she first sign additional paperwork. The used car lot also told her the sales price was going to be higher for a customer buying on credit than for a customer paying cash. Before allowing her to take the car, the Grimaldi dealership also gave her even more paperwork in which they tried to change the terms of their deal. Once she received the car, it was in a different condition than it had been when she signed the initial contract.
After retaining us, our investigation revealed that our client had numerous claims against the Grimaldi Enterprises car dealership. We filed our Complaint with claims for: Revocation of Acceptance, Fraud and Misrepresentation, Violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and others. Shortly after we filed our lawsuit, Grimaldi Enterprises agreed to a settlement that included numerous provisions in our client’s favor, including a full refund to our client for her deposit and all court costs.
If a new or used car dealer has unfairly taken advantage of you – either in misrepresenting the condition of the car or in the vehicle financing or other paperwork – the law may provide you with certain remedies. If you’ve been faced with a similar situation, please contact us to determine your rights. Remember, the initial consultation is always free, so don’t delay.

Midland Funding, LLC sued our client on an alleged debt they claimed to have purchased from Chase Bank USA. The lawsuit was filed by the debt collection law firm of Sprechman & Associates from Miami, FL, who asserted three separate counts seeking to recover damages as well as court costs.
We promptly filed our answer and affirmative defenses explaining why we believed Midland Funding was not entitled to recover money from our client. When Midland Funding refused to produce the documents in accordance with the deadlines in the court rules, we filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. Soon after that, Midland Funding dismissed its case against our client.
If you have been sued by Midland Funding or another debt buyer, please contact us for a free consultation. We are here to protect consumers like you
