I will be at the University of Florida in Gainesville today.

While I am on the campus I will spend several hours at the medical school library and the medical school bookstore. Why? Because that is what I need to do regularly to keep abreast of the medicine that is so important in the evaluation and preparation of my cases.

A lawyer who represents the wrongfully injured probably reads more medical journals and textbooks than ones focused on the law. He probably buys more medical treatises than law books. And, he probably spends more time consulting with doctors than with other lawyers.

We are fortunate in the Tampa Bay area to have the University of South Florida Medical School and its library close at hand, but the Shands Teaching Hospital on the UF campus in Gainesville continues to lure me with its amazingly complete library facility.

Go Gators!!
