About Our Practice: What We Stand For

At Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A., we stand for the simple proposition that elderly lives matter. Our attorneys and staff believe whole-heartedly that every vulnerable elder deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. When nursing homes, assisted living facilities and professional care facilities trample on their rights and well-being, we’re committed to seeking truth and justice.

Located in the Miami area, we are one of only a handful of Florida law firms that focuses exclusively on this niche field.

    They have your back and will fight!
