Richard Eagles, the founder of The Eagles Law Firm, is a South Florida native who loves his home state and the people who reside within it. Prior to opening The Eagles Law Firm, Mr. Eagles began his law career serving the citizens of South Florida who were accused of committing a crime but could not afford to hire a lawyer through his work at the Broward County Public Defender’s Office. Mr. Eagles has taken numerous misdemeanor and felony cases and has a strong record of success. As an assistant public defender, Richard developed and honed his skills to aggressively advocate on behalf of his clients, negotiate favorable resolutions, and, when necessary, take his clients’ cases to trial.
After the Public Defender’s Office, Mr. Eagles entered private practice as civil litigator defending property insurance and personal injury lawsuits. As a civil defense attorney, Mr. Eagles learned the assessments used by insurance companies in making coverage and payment determinations, and how to pursue compensation for the injured. This experience helped him to develop a critical and astute eye for assisting injured and aggrieved persons in evaluating and litigating their claims.
