BRIAN O. CROSS

GD&C SHAREHOLDER & titleplus ATTORNEY
“I love working at GD&C & TITLEPLUS because it provides me with a platform to help my clients achieve their goals. Beyond my own years of expertise, I’m supported by an expert team of colleagues who drive our collective success.”

Mr. Cross is a Managing Partner at GD&C who is responsible for the oversight and management of the Firm, and he is also a key contributor to the Firm’s commercial litigation practice, which includes community association, real estate, complex, construction defect and business disputes. He relishes his role as a mentor to our associate attorneys and remains heavily involved in decisions that affect the Firm’s stability and growth.

Unquestionably, Mr. Cross’ work to this day is steeped in the values his parents instilled in him as a child: Treat everyone with respect, including yourself. Mr. Cross considers his greatest professional accomplishment becoming a Shareholder of the Firm. However, his work consolidating two independent fire districts in Collier County—for the first time ever—is a very close second.

Gregory Herrick

TITLE PLUS ATTORNEY

Mr. Herrick centers his practice in complex commercial litigation, insurance litigation, community association litigation, landlord/tenant litigation, business litigation and real estate disputes.

Further, Mr. Herrick handles pre-litigation matters such as demand letters, discovery, mediation, consultations and settlement negotiations.

“Prior to attending law school, I spent several years working as a paramedic where I was frequently called upon to make important decisions in high stress situations and regularly dealt with people in genuine need of a steady hand to guide them out of a difficult situation. Those experiences provided a foundation for me as an attorney where I can quickly analyze my client’s issues and prioritize the critical items that need to get accomplished first in order to help my clients achieve their goals.”

Mr. Herrick’s greatest professional accomplishment is when he helped reunite a father with his daughter that he had not seen for nearly a year after she was unlawfully taken to another state.

Molly Maggiano

GD&C PARTNER & titleplus ATTORNEY
“The most interesting thing about being an attorney is that no two clients or projects are the same and, therefore, no two days are ever the same.

Ms. Maggiano focuses her practice on real estate transactions, developer representation, community association representation, and matters affecting title to property. Her responsibilities include the representation of developer clients in the acquisition and sale of property, creation, and operation of community associations, the establishment of community development districts, and utility turnovers.

Ms. Maggiano is also responsible for the drafting and reviewing of commercial leases, loan agreements, property association documents, easements, licenses, and builder agreements; interpretation and drafting of amendments to property association governing documents, covenant enforcement, and review of vendor contracts.

“My greatest professional accomplishment is seeing my clients’ visions come to life and grow into successful communities, developments and commercial centers”
