In the hours, days and now weeks since the horrific tragedy of the Surfside condo collapse, the firm’s Gary Mars and Stuart Sobel have been among the most sought-after expert sources by local and national media. They have conducted extensive interviews with NBC News, the Miami Herald, South Florida Sun Sentinel, Daily Business Review, Law 360 and The Real Deal. In addition, Gary and Stuart appeared live in wide-ranging interviews on The Florida Roundup and Sundial, the news and public affairs shows produced and aired by WLRN FM-91.3, the South Florida National Public Radio affiliate.
Both of these interviews covered a great deal of ground, and we encourage all those interested in learning more about the questions involving the legal ramifications of this tragedy and the liabilities of the insurer, builders, engineers and architects to listen to both. Gary’s interview on The Florida Roundup aired on Friday, July 2, at 1 p.m., and it’s available to be heard in full by clicking here. He discusses the implications for condominium association boards from the collapse as well as the reforms that may be in store. He believes these should include federal relief, perhaps in the form of federally backed low interest loans for condominium associations in need of undergoing extensive repairs.
Stuart’s interview aired during the Sundial show at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6. He discusses the extremely high qualifications of the judge and engineer assigned to the case, and he also shares his insights into the projections for the investigation and the ultimate compensation for the victims and their families. It is a wide-ranging discussion that also delves into the projected reforms that he foresees are likely to follow. Stuart’s interview is available by clicking here.
