Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin looking to add to deep bench

Florida, Fla. (November 8, 2010) – Building on more than 120 years of combined experience, six of the area’s most well-respected and recognized personal injury attorneys – Mark Clark, Donald Fountain Jr., Nancy La Vista, David Prather, W. Hampton Keen and Julie Littky-Rubin have formed their own firm. The office, which is currently headquartered at 1919 N. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, will move into its permanent 10,250-sq.-ft space in the same building during the first quarter of 2011. The attorneys were all previously partners with the law firm of Lytal, Reiter, Clark, Fountain & Williams.

Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin, LLP, is nationally recognized in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, medical malpractice and appellate law. Over the years the six partners have successfully handled thousands of cases, receiving verdicts and settlements in excess of $400 million.

"While we’re a ‘new firm,’ we have deep roots in the community, and are committed to continuing to provide the highest level of legal representation to those wrongfully injured," said Mark Clark, president/managing partner of the firm, who has more than 25 years of experience. "Our top priority is client satisfaction. We feel blessed that we continue to represent so many of our long-time clients."

Clark Fountain distinguishes itself as one of only a handful of firms that handle personal injury, products liability and medical malpractice cases throughout the country, including in Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Virginia.

Fountain added, "Our attorneys have an unparalleled knowledge of the legal system in order to handle the most complex cases."

Two of the firm’s partners obtained one of the top 100 verdicts in the United States in 2008. And, four of the partners have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the prestigious publication, "The Best Lawyers in America."

"We have the ability to go toe-to-toe against the county’s largest corporations and have relationships with the top experts in the field," Fountain said. "That’s critical for our clients. We’ve developed a reputation over the years for getting maximum results."

Some of the features of the new firm include new, technology-savvy, state-of-the-art systems to operate leaner and more efficiently for the client’s benefit. Key attributes include the latest software for electronic case management, video-conferencing and fully-redundant computer systems to protect and maintain client data and confidentiality.

In addition to the six named partners, Clark Fountain has already added three attorneys and is currently hiring additional attorneys, paralegals and support staff.
