  • Edward P. de la Parte Featured in Florida Trend Article on Technology
    Edward P. de la Parte, Jr., de la Parte & Gilbert’s managing partner, was featured in the February 2013 Florida Trend magazine emphasizing the positive changes that technology has brought to the legal field. “In my opinion, programs like Exhibit A and iPads are going to revolutionize trial work in small to medium-size cases. They are going to permit a high-quality trial presentation at a fraction of the cost that we were paying just a year or two ago. This will level the playing field for our clients and will ultimately make the administration of justice more efficient and accessible."
