Mr. Rechel also has a broad spectrum of experience, having handled cases in the areas of criminal law, probate, real estate, bankruptcy, personal injury, wrongful death, and general civil law.  He has prosecuted and defended numerous appeals, including cases in front of the Second District Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the State of Florida.  This wealth of experience helps Mr. Rechel bring great perspective to his cases.
