I am a trial attorney who had been practicing law for ten years. Attorneys only hire the best when the things that matter the most in their own lives are threatened with harm. That is why I hired Christopher R. Largey of Largey Law when my family, children, and career were maliciously attacked and deceitfully threatened. Mr. Largey is respected by our judges, other attorneys, and the community at large, and as a result he is routinely hired by lawyers who need to be represented fully. He never backs down, he is never pushed, and he is compassionate. He absolutely understood the gravity of the family dynamic that he had to protect in my case. Whenever a lie was told, he would immediately and aggressively confront it head-on, exposing the same. His skillful use of courtroom practice and his knowledge of the evidence code brought the truth to light. The result was a resounding legal victory that protected my children, as well as the complete vindication of my character and my career. Though Chris is not even a family law lawyer, I knew he was the right attorney for this challenge. He stood there for me, and I will never regret hiring him for as long as I live.

Following my car accident I was referred by a friend to Largey Law Firm. Chris Largey agreed to take my case. He and Rosie along with his staff were very reassuring that they would take care if all my legal issues dealing with the insurance companies. He was not only concerned about my case but also about my physical condition. Chris referred me to health care workers that were a great asset to my healing process. Chris handled everything for me which allowed me to concentrate on healing. I would highly recommend the Largey Law Firm to anyone who needs someone to get justice for them.

As a family law attorney, I had the opportunity to work with Chris in a case involving an injunction that was part of a family law matter that I was involved in. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a criminal law attorney. In my opinion, he is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with!
Informative friendly and helpful professional. Passionate and caring for the right of the person represented.
Central Florida Sees Increase in Pedestrian Deaths
- posted: May 15, 2018
The year 2017 was a deadly one for Central Florida pedestrians. In the first few months alone, 24 pedestrians were killed in Seminole, Lake, Osceola and Orange counties, according to data from the Florida Highway Patrol. This was up from 18 for the same timeframe in 2016.
Orange County in particular has a long history of being among the country’s deadliest locations for pedestrians, largely because many tourists and locals are constantly on the streets as they walk to and from public transportation access points.
What’s interesting about the circumstances in Central Florida is that it’s the pedestrians who tend to be at fault for many accidents. Many fail to cross the street in crosswalks or to look both ways before crossing. It doesn’t help that they often are not wearing bright or reflective clothing at night.
There are, of course, incidents in which drivers make poor decisions, but by and large, pedestrians are placing themselves in dangerous and potentially deadly situations. With more drivers out on the road because of lower gas prices, pedestrians must exercise even greater caution now than in years past.
Safety initiatives on the rise
County officials in Central Florida are well aware of the increased pedestrian fatality figures and are implementing new initiatives to curb the trends. Orange County, for example, has been making a variety of road improvements designed to benefit pedestrians. The county, in conjunction with the University of Central Florida, is spending nearly $9 million to install better lighting on roads around the campus and will also be adding more crosswalks and widening sidewalks. The county is also studying Oak Ridge and Pine Hills roads with the idea of making similar improvements in those spots.
In addition, the Florida Highway Patrol started the Arrive Alive campaign, which provides increased law enforcement presence in areas known to have high rates of traffic deaths, and upped its public education and outreach efforts.
Still, it’s clear that state and local governments still have a long way to go to combat what has been a growing problem in the region.
