  • Florida Trends names Jason Brodie & Joshua Friedman as Florida Legal Elite

    Now in its 13th year, Florida Legal Elite presents a prestigious roster of attorneys chosen for recognition by their peers. The 1,144 lawyers listed here exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession and by so doing, have garnered the respect and esteem of their colleagues.  Voting for this year’s Legal Elite attorneys began in October 2015 when Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to participate. Multiple announcements publicized the ballot deadline and voting guidelines.

    Lawyers were asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three “up and coming” attorneys, and in a separate category, outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors. The ballots were processed, checked and tabulated by Bradenton-based Outsource America and EA Fernbacher LLC in St. Petersburg. Each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes he or she received, with more weight given to votes from outside the firm. Only lawyers who are currently licensed and practicing in Florida were eligible for selection. The list of top vote-getters was further examined using membership status and histories provided by the Florida Bar. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing different practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists. The resulting lists represent fewer than 2% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida. The Legal Elite Hall of Fame comprises a distinguished group of attorneys who have consistently earned high rankings from their peers in the annual Legal Elite voting.

  • The Cost of Scott Stapp’s Downward Spiral: Blowing Through $1.5 Million in a Year

    December 5, 2014

    But according to sources, it was only in 2013 that the singer received $1.5 million in advances from from his label Wind-up Records and his publishing company for his 2013 solo album, Proof of Life. An additional $3 million was due to Creed for the band’s last record, 2009’s Full Circle, which so far has U.S. sales of 444,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan; Stapp would have shared in that as well. No additional money is due at this time since the band and Stapp as a solo artist have not recouped.

    The 41-year-old’s estranged wife, Jaclyn, who’s seeking a divorce and temporary sole custody of their two children, says through her attorney Jason Brodie that her husband of almost nine years has a history of “going on drug binges and disappearing for days or weeks at a time. It is now apparent, the seriousness of Scott’s health. Jaclyn has taken all the necessary steps to help him.”

  • Scott Stapp’s wife seeking divorce, help for Creed frontman

    Published December 02, 2014 FOX NEWS – Associated Press

    Creed frontman Scott Stapp’s wife is seeking a divorce from her estranged husband.

    Jaclyn Stapp filed for divorce from the 41-year-old singer and asked a judge in Palm Beach County, Florida, last month to have her husband admitted to a substance abuse facility. She said her husband has been using several drugs and threatened to kill himself and harm his family. She said he left their home in early October.

    “It is a very painful and personal matter for the family,” said Jason Brodie, Jaclyn Stapp’s attorney. “Jaclyn loves Scott very much. It is now apparent the seriousness of Scott’s health. Jaclyn has taken all the necessary steps to help him. She previously arranged for the appropriate treatment and will continue to try and help him. Her primary concern remains the best interest of their children. Jaclyn asks for privacy for her and her children during this difficult time.”

    The couple married eight years ago and has three children.

    Stapp has been posting rambling online videos on Facebook over the past week saying he’s broke. He denied he’s taking drugs or alcohol and said he is “as sober as can be.”

    “When you can’t get any help from law enforcement, your federal government or even local attorneys, what options am I left with except to make public statements like this, and put it out on the Internet and hope that someone’s going to realize that the rumors that have been spread about me are lies,” he said in one video.

    The videos were later deleted and a statement posted Friday said Stapp is “going to step back and let God control everything from here on.”

    “I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration and emotions take control and post those videos,” the statement said.

    Creed last toured together in 2012. The band was one of the most successful rock acts of the 1990s, selling more than 40 million albums. Creed won the Grammy for best rock song for “With Arms Wide Open” in 2001.
