Our attorney team is pleased to announce that yet another partner of Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen has been selected to represent plaintiffs in the Champlain Towers South Collapse Litigation: Per a court order entered by the Miami-Dade County circuit court judge presiding over the case, Attorney Rachel Furst has been appointed as Co-Chair Lead Counsel.
The Champlain Towers South Collapse Litigation consolidates all the lawsuits arising from the Surfside condo collapse on June 24, 2021. The collapse of the 12-story condo devastated the nation, with a death toll of nearly 100.
It is a great honor to be a part of the plaintiffs’ team in the class action suit against Champlain Towers South Condominium Association, Inc., and other defendants who plaintiffs allege are partially liable for this tragic event in Surfside.
Attorney Furst has extensive experience in litigating personal injury and wrongful death class actions, as well as individual claims, in state and federal courts. She also handles arbitration proceedings and appeals. Rachel has taken on leadership roles in various class actions. Presently, she serves as the appointed Liaison Counsel in the January 2021 Short Squeeze Trading Litigation, multidistrict litigation (MDL) pending in the Southern District of Florida. She is also class counsel in a pending case against Ford Motor Company and represents clients in a products liability class action against Allergan, Inc.
Attorney Furst’s premier legal advocacy at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen has earned her selection to Super Lawyers®, Rising Stars, and as a 40 Under 40 Outstanding Lawyers of South Florida awardee. Most importantly, she is highly regarded by her peers and clients for dedicating her career to helping injured individuals in her local communities.
In addition to Attorney Furst’s appointment, co-founder of Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, Attorney Stuart Z. Grossman, has also been appointed as the Wrongful Death Damage Liaison Counsel for the Champlain Towers South Collapse Litigation.
We at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen would like to sincerely congratulate Attorney Furst on her appointment to Co-Chair Lead Counsel in the Champlain Towers South Collapse Litigation. There is no doubt that she will fight to pursue justice for the families of those who died and lost their homes in this horrific tragedy.
