Biography

Aside from zealous advocacy, the lawyer’s primary role is to ensure you, the client, can perceive both the positive and negative aspects of a complex legal issue. Lawyers must boil down unfamiliar topics and promote well-informed, rational decision-making processes.

I'm passionate about integrity, responsibility, and professionalism; I strive to combine tenacity and grit with a civil, courteous approach. As a lawyer, I work hard every day to help clients manage uncertainty and overcome whatever legal obstacles they face. I work alongside my bride and fellow attorney, Melissa Cain, at Cain & Cain, PL. Our home office is in wonderful Jacksonville, Florida. We live in nearby Ponte Vedra Beach, where we decided to settle down and raise our amazing daughters.

I'm a first generation attorney who's known nothing but long days and hard work my entire life. I grew up in Alabama, became an Eagle Scout during high school, and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force soon after graduation. I spent my 20's in Las Vegas, then moved to Los Angeles and attended college on the G.I. Bill. After deciding to attend law school, I finished in 23 months, shaving more than a full year off the traditional three year program. I held a job throughout my law studies while simultaneously doing the best I could to be a good dad to my kids. Somehow, I also found time to clerk at two prestigious law firms.

I'm licensed to practice law in Florida.

Rise Up Legal | Cain & Cain
- Current
Rise Up Legal originated in 2008 when Mr. and Mrs. Cain began working together at Cain Law Group in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mrs. Cain served as the founding attorney, while Mr. Cain--having yet to attend law school due to military service--worked in a managerial role, handling business administration. Mr. Cain also assisted clients with bankruptcy filings in a paralegal capacity. The Cain firm filed hundreds of cases and represented thousands of clients in Nevada during the 2008 economic crisis. After selling the Las Vegas location, Mr. and Mrs. Cain relocated to Birmingham, Alabama. Using a similar approach, the Cain firm has since represented hundreds of clients throughout the state of Alabama. In addition to our home office in Jacksonville, the Birmingham office is still active and can be found on the web at BhamBK.com.

Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered
Q. IF i FILED A CHAPTER 7 LAST YEAR AND IT HAS BEEN DISCHARGED DO I NEED TO REPORT A SETTLEMENT I MAY RECEIVE THIS YEAR
A: Based on the facts provided, t depends on when the injury occurred. Any potential claims you have up until the day of filing are normally part of your bankruptcy estate. Because your discharge was so recent, any such claims should have been listed on your bankruptcy petition. You should follow up with your attorney and advise them of the status of your potential settlement. They should help you make any required updates to your case. Best of luck to you, I hope you get this straightened out quickly.
Q. My chap 7 has been discharged can the trustee i sell my jointly owned house to pay debts although its not a 13.
A: Hello, I'm sorry about the trouble you're experiencing in your chapter 7 bankruptcy. Generally, bankruptcy trustees have broad powers to liquidate estate property unless an exemption applies. Depending on your circumstances, this might apply to your jointly owned home. I recommend that you find out the status of your case. Also, you should consult with your attorney. If you didn't have an attorney represent you, I recommend finding one as quickly as possible. Finally, please note that in order to obtain a discharge, you will have to file the second credit counseling (form 423). Best of luck to you, I hope you obtain a fair resolution to your case.
Q. I recently bought a home with my grandmother and now i must put her in a nursing home can medicaid take my house?
A: Florida law protects your homestead from most creditors. If the home is properly listed as your homestead, then usually the only creditors who can attach a lien are: contractors you've hired to work on the home; government agencies tasked to collect property taxes; and lenders who provided money in exchange for a lien on the property. Otherwise, your home should be safe. However, you should contact an attorney, review the relevant documents, and make sure your interests are protected.
