This is our fourth year of celebrating second-stage business leaders throughout the state of Florida. The companies selected for the Florida Companies to Watch awards program stand out among their peers as companies that should be celebrated. In Florida, they account for 5 percent of the companies and nearly 30 percent of the jobs. These companies make a difference and we’re happy to offer the recognition they deserve.”

revenue growth in Florida as well as the rest of the country. We realize that making the Florida Companies to Watch list is a tremendous accomplishment and we are very proud,” said Synergy Settlement Services CEO, Jason Lazarus.

TESTIMONIALS

"Synergy is a valuable partner in the successful resolution of catastrophic cases. Their understanding of complex issues including Medicare, Medicaid and financial planning – allows me to be certain that my clients and practice are protected."

Hector J. Lombana
Gamba & Lombana

"In my business as a plaintiff’s products liability lawyer, everything begins and ends with our clients. In our firm we never handle a significant case without the assistance of Synergy. Why? Very simple: we trust Synergy with our clients. Yes, Synergy only works with plaintiffs. And yes, they are highly technically proficient and know this business cold. But what makes them different from others is that they listen to our clients, make our clients comfortable with complex issues, and always put the interests of the client first. In my opinion, because of their unique ability to handle people with sincerity and compassion in their time of crisis, they stand head and shoulders above his competition."
