Merlin Law Group is pleased to announce that former Circuit Court Judge Dennis Bailey has joined Merlin Law Group to lead our litigation division. as Attorney General of Broward County. He has tried over 200 jury trials and as many trials. He has also handled both criminal and civil appeals.
He taught law at both Nova Southeastern University and the University of Miami, and taught law and evidence at Broward College Police Academy. He has also instructed other judges as a teacher at Florida Judicial College. He is a former chairman of the North Broward Bar Association and is currently on the Weston Bar Association Board of Directors. He is a member of the Autism Society of Broward County and is former Chairman of the Exceptional Student Learning Support Advisory Council of the Broward County School Board.
Dennis has experience in the real estate insurance business and worked at the same insurance company Javier Delgado did before joining our company. He will work closely with co-leader Mike Duffy on the supervision and support of matters. His experience and passion for litigation will help the most experienced attorney in the Merlin Law Group and lend a hand in training and mentoring other attorneys with little litigation exposure.
I believe that Dennis is a great complement to the team effort of the Merlin Law Group to provide the best representation for all law firms representing policyholders. Insurance companies and their attorneys know that behind every Merlin Law Group attorney and client is an experienced litigation attorney who also has the vision to be a judge. It is unique to have a person who has tried hundreds of cases before a jury, taught lawyers how to convincingly try cases and has looked at cases from the bench.
“I have known the company and the work it does for more than a decade. When I left the bench to return to private practice, I knew that Merlin Law Group was the place I wanted to go, says Dennis.
We are pleased to see the positive impact Dennis will have in our litigation division and look forward to his contributions and results that he provides to our clients.
