Introduction of the Firm

Peter A. Portley and William F. Sullivan have practiced law together since 1974. They met as freshmen at the University of Florida in 1961 where they were fraternity brothers and roommates. Mr. Portley began his practice in Pompano Beach in 1968 after graduating from St. John's University, School of Law in New York and Mr. Sullivan joined him upon his release from active duty with the U.S. Army Judge Advocate Generals Corp in 1974. Their offices were located on Atlantic Boulevard in Pompano Beach until the move to their present location in Lighthouse Point in January 2000.

Since their admissions to the Bar, both men have been actively engaged in the practice of law and have earned a reputation for professional competence and integrity. They have also been committed to community affairs and devoted substantial time and effort to civic and charitable causes in the South Florida community.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
