5 years Ago, MarcWites
Wites Law Firm has a soft spot youth football. Some of you might remember when we helped a group of 9-year old players that were denied the right to play on their team a couple years ago.
Yesterday, we had the honor to represent the Miramar High School Football Team in Court. The School Board ended their season on November 12, 2014 by not allowing the entire team to play in the state championship playoffs based on unproven allegations against just a few players made by a former coach. We took the case on the morning of November 14, 2014, pro bono, and by noon filed a complaint and emergency motion for injunctive relief. We were in court by 3:30 p.m. before Judge Jack Tuter of The Broward County Circuit Court.
Judge Tuter granted us, and held, a very fair hearing, and did a great job. Although he did not grant an injunction to allow the boys to play, Judge Tuter did find that the student athletes of the Patriots football team had suffered irreparable harm, and had been denied due process in what he called an incomplete and one sided investigation. Ultimately, the boys had their day in court and learned some tough life lessons. We wish the Patriots and their families the best and are grateful for the opportunity to represent them.

Mr. Wites accepted my case when other lawyers would not. He never promised what he couldn’t deliver. He was realistic, upfront and honest. He actually returns phone calls. And he is willing to explain the legal process and to take time to answer questions. I would definitely contact Mr. Wites if I ever needed a lawyer again.Karla
