We provide skilled representation to all of the individuals and businesses that seek our services.

Robert A. Stok, the firm’s founder, transitioned to the legal profession after a successful 20-year career as an investment banker on Wall Street. His extensive financial industry experience translates into distinctive advantages for our firm’s clients, since he is able to quickly and accurately assess their economic interests. In each situation, Mr. Stok analyzes whether settlement, litigation, or another alternative is the most appropriate option for you to pursue. At our firm, you are getting not only trusted legal advisors, but also capable financial guidance from a holistic standpoint.
Helping Businesses Pursue Their Goals
The attorneys of Stok Folk + Kon are highly experienced in commercial litigation matters, including disputes between principals, partnership dissolutions, contract matters, unfair competition, trade secrets, real estate law, and more. We understand the high stakes in these cases, where the outcome can affect the financial well-being of both the businesses involved and the people who own them. The interests of management and ownership are not always perfectly aligned, and sometimes people who run a company for others may have incentives to pursue their own gain rather than upholding the fiduciary duties with which they are charged. On other occasions, an individual who is familiar with a company’s operation will disclose information that is not generally known about it, which could harm the business. You can hold this person accountable if you file a lawsuit in a timely manner and work with a skilled attorney on developing strong arguments to prove your claim.
One of the most common disputes in the context of commercial litigation arises from a breach of contract. This happens when a person or entity refuses to honor the terms of a pre-existing agreement that was valid and binding. You can pursue a wide range of damages if you are successful in pursuing this type of claim. For example, a business owner might receive not just compensatory damages but incidental damages if a loss was not directly caused by the defendant’s conduct but could have been anticipated by the defendant. Sometimes contracts may need to be invalidated or restructured, moreover, and we also can help you with these non-monetary remedies of rescission and reformation.
Extending beyond litigation, our lawyers assist entities and entrepreneurs with transactions integral to running their operations. We can guide you in choosing the business form that best suits your purpose or structuring a deal and finding financing sources. Our experience in working with lenders has benefited many clients, as has our state-of-the-art technology. After a closing, we will provide you with the necessary information in digital rather than paper form, and you can expect to receive electronic reminders from us at regular intervals regarding any taxes or bills related to the closing that may be due. We view each matter with which we assist businesses and their owners not as an assignment that needs to be completed but as an ongoing partnership in which we can continue helping you fulfill your goals.
Many enterprises become stronger by integrating talent from outside the United States. Through our immigration law practice, we have honed our skills in compiling the relevant documents and preparing applications for business visas, among other types of visas and green cards. Our extensive knowledge of removal proceedings also allows us to help individuals who are in danger of losing their right to stay in this country. We understand that immigration issues can be very stressful, and you can expect compassion from our entire team.
Our firm also represents many types of creditors in state court and bankruptcy litigation, including small businesses, corporations, financial institutions, lenders, and lien holders. We can help you with collecting debts and seeking the execution of judgments, since we have the business acumen and legal knowledge needed to understand the nuances of these cases. We also represent debtors in bankruptcy matters.
Helping Families Navigate Sensitive Legal Matters
Divorce and custody issues are never easy to handle emotionally or financially, but being informed about your rights can make a critical difference. Our economic background is essential when it comes to the division of marital assets. Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that a court will split the property of divorcing spouses in a way that is fair but not always exactly even. Since this process can be unpredictable, it is important to have skilled legal counsel on your side. We can also help you vindicate your rights as a parent. Our firm handles paternity suits and jurisdictional disputes regarding support and visitation.
Other areas in which we can assist you include appellate litigation, construction litigation, intellectual property, medical malpractice, and real estate law. No matter the specific issue at stake, most cases are fact-intensive. We will collect evidence, work with adverse parties, and consult industry experts to give you every advantage possible. When you are our client, we want to ensure that all of your concerns are addressed at every step of the way. We encourage you to keep an open line of communication with us if you have any questions. After our team has collected the necessary information, we will develop a strategy to pursue the outcome that you deserve.
