Attorney in Christ

Let me explain the white Attorney in Christ seal. By faith alone I received eternal life as a free gift from Jesus Christ. I strive to glorify Him in all that I do, including my law practice. In my life, I fall short of that goal at times, but I press on. God does not discriminate against people because of their race, faith, age, gender or any other factor. He loves everyone and offers the free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, God in the flesh. I enjoy praying with clients of like faith, and seeking God's help in all that we do. Because God does not discriminate in His love, I do not discriminate in my legal practice. I answer my own telephone at 321.237.2869 and welcome your call. Simple Guide to Business Law │+Personal Legal Care+


Toxic Mold  Law Overview

Herbert L. Allen, Jr., P.A. Attorney provides this Simple Guide to Toxic Mold Law to help people learn a few basic concepts about Florida toxic mold. I use the term "toxic mold" to describe the effect that mold has on some people. Not every person exposed to the same mold environment will react the same way. In some cases, the physical reaction to the mold may be quite severe. In my practice, I divide mold law into four main areas: building envelope, mold assessing, mold remediation, and simple guide to mold cases.

Building Envelope

When I speak of the building envelope, I mean the skin of building that separates the inside of the building from the environment outdoors. I usually have at least one building expert, such as a general contractor who is also a certified engineer, examine the building envelope and see where moisture intrudes into places it does not belong. The moisture intrusion often arises from a construction defect, allowing water into the building.

Mold Assessor

The mold assessor holds a valid, current Florida license to perform mold testing. I like to see air samples and other samples taken from different places in the building. If you can see mold-looking stuff in a particular place inside the building, it may be in less obvious places as well. I have seen mold completely infest a house, growing on the walls, under windows, under sinks, and in different rooms. The mold assessor usually provides report of the types of mold found, the levels of mold found, and recommendations for remediation. Please recall that under Florida law, the mold assessor cannot do the remediation in most cases.

Mold Remediation

The mold remediation person holds a current, valid Florida license for mold remediation. They must work closely with other experts to be sure that the moisture problem has been solved. They work to correct the moisture problem and also take appropriate measures to be sure the mold present has been thoroughly removed. This work can be fairly difficult and requires careful attention to air pressures, access to the affected areas, appropriate precautions for everyone entering the mold environment, and being sure that safety and security comes first. Only after a clean post-remediation test from the mold assessor can one certify that the mold problem has been resolved.

Simple Guide to Toxic Mold Law

I have provided a simple guide to toxic mold elsewhere. I will summarize here that anyone exposed to toxic mold should seek immediate medical attention if they experience any symptoms. Problems with children exposed to toxic mold may be worse in the long run. I urge people to put their health firs. If possible and wise, have mold testing done early. I prefer an expert conduct such testing. At all times, be sure to document everything in detail, with a log, pictures, and videos. Great evidence leads to great results. Mold cases take time and effort, plus coordination with a team of experts. Those experts often must be prepared to battle with other experts in court. Proving that personal injuries arose from mold exposure may be challenging at times. All means of dispute resolution should be considered and all reasonable options exercised in resolving the case.
