Tampa Bay attorneys John Della Costa and David Neville met while working at local law firms that operated with what they call the “Mill Mentality.” The goal of the “Mill Mentality” is to attract as many cases as possible and then push them through the legal system quickly. It was a volume business that produced great revenue for the law firms, but John and David always felt the clients weren’t getting the personal attention they deserved.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO GET YOUR FREE GUIDE*: 1) Visit www.ProLawUSA.com and click the download button
2) Call our office at In 2006 John and David decided to do things differently. They envisioned a law firm where clients could work directly with their attorneys – not paralegals, case workers, or assistants like they would at a typical “TV law firm.” They knew this approach would require them to accept fewer cases but they also knew it was the best way to serve their clients. Together, John and David created the law firm of Della Costa & Neville to provide clients with the personal service they felt was lacking in so many of the larger firms.
If you’ve been injured there are plenty of law firms out there eager to handle your case and it’s not always easy to tell the differences between them. That’s why John Della Costa decided to write Don’t Get Caught In The Mill! It’s an inside look at the way different law firms operate and is designed to provide consumers with the information they need to select the right attorney for their case.

Hi all just sat down to share something’s you may want to know. December went by so quick my head was spinning. We went to so many parades and toy runs all through the month with the fire truck and it was great having everyone excited to see it!! We still have a few Christmas parties left and a New Year party to go as of this writing. The Full Throttle Motorcycle Expo and Bike Builder invitational are coming up January 24th – 26th. DON’T MISS IT!! There is going to be a $100 hourly cash give-a-way, a free Man Cave give-a-way, free fireworks display on Saturday night and 2 ride in bike shows - Friday night is the (LED) light up show and Sunday is ride in for all bikes. Plus we will have bands playing that you all know and have heard of throughout the whole weekend. One last thing to make you want to come out…..Paul Sr. from OCC will be there Saturday and Sunday with a couple of his custom bikes with merchandise & he will be signing autographs.. Tell next time (Live life to the fullest and party you’re a$$ off )..DEW
I would like to tell you a little bit about one mans thanksgiving. Most people believe the story of plymouth rock which is a lot of bs which is a way to sell turkeys every year. This friend of mine didn't do the traditional thanksgiving. He went shopping and bought things like lettuce tomato carrots celery etc or anything else a florida gopher turtle may eat. He went out in his backyard and had thanksgiving with them since he has 200 of them. It is against the law to kill a gopher turtle but when he built his house they were there so he got permits to capture and pen them up until his house is completed. He has a pretty good sized piece of property and fenced it in a way that they can't get out. Now he is the keeper of 200 turtles - they have some wolves in the neighborhood and he doctors them when it happens. Sometimes they get sunburnt and he rubs vaseline on their shells. He takes good care of them whatever their needs may be. The reason I am writing this story is he is a biker and most people wouldn't expect this out of a biker. I remember one time someone said he hadn't been around very long. I think he is about 60 now but when he was a kid living in hollywood california he used to hang around a shop that built for movies
and car shows. They guys name was Bill Barris. When he was 15 he started hanging around this shop and due to his long hair they used to call him mop top. He got jobs cleaning whatever else they needed to get done. My friend who said he hadn't been around very long reminds me of the time they said they were building a motorcycle for a show. The name of the show was Happy Days and the bike was for the Fonz and that was the job he was given to do. He has been around a long time, he is about 60 years old. He has been in the guinness book of world records 3 times and has won 2 international shows. he is probably the best designer and detail person I have known in my life - not just me. He was told by a person that was really in the know they reminded him of Salvador Dali with a cable guy attitude. Recently he has been involved in building a bike working with slick and jane in bradenton palmetto area and twisted custom in bradenton palmetto area, This guy his quite a guy and appreciate his friendship and hope somebody recognized the heart of this person. PS - for those who dont know, he was involved in the building of the first bat mobile. See you soon Tina
Hello Florida bikers! In case anyone noticed, last month I didn't submit my monthly rant. It's because I've had a run of bad luck and I was cooling my heels in Bayonet Point Hospital. Five days to be exact. Seems the o'l ticker was trying to tell me something. It's telling me I'm not as young as I once was and it's time to clean up my act. I'm not gonna bore you with all the details but after a few days of not feeling well I ran into a couple of guardian angels that very well could have saved my life. I happened to stop into Venom 2 on a Sunday after noon and run in to Tattoo Carol and Louie from Fran Haasch. We got to talking and they both convinced me to go in to the hospital and get checked out. God bless those two cause the saw bones told me I had had a mild heart attack. Damn,life sucks sometimes but thank god for good friends. Thank you to everyone for the get wells and prayers. While on on the subject of Venom 2, watch for some really cool things coming in the near future... Minh from Venom Custom Motorcycles, Evils Jailbait Girls, and myself Red Ryder representing Full Throttle Magazine have been making some big plans and are very excited to bring the motorcycle community some fun things to do whether you want to participate or have a cold one and watch all the fun. I don't want to give it away so watch for the coming Venom adds in Full Throttle Magazine. All I can say is every month will be different and doing things that no one has done before. It's guaranteed to get better and more wild as time goes on. Stay tuned for more details. Last but not least, check out my friend Ferrari, one of Evils Jail Bait girls while she try's to melt Big ALS camera during her photo shoot in this months issue of Full Throttle Magazine. Until next month, Red Ryder.
This year's Full Throttle Teddy Bear Toy run was one of our best turn outs in a very long time! We had over 200 bikers show up and we raised over $650 cash for the hospital as well as multiple over flowing bins full of toys and goodies! I would personally like to thank everyone who took time out of their busy lives and schedules to show up for this amazing event. This is the only motorcycle ride that goes to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in the Holiday Season and the ladies who work for the hospital were overwhelmed with the amount of people on the ride this year! I would like to thank our official Santa (Chef Doug) for coming out at well as Attorney Fran Haasch and her family, Kirk from Moto Tow, Bikers Post for taking great pictures, LAMA Brandon Chapter for being our road crew, Tampa Harley-Davidson for letting us use their lot to start the event and the Full Throttle Staff for helping make it all happen smoothly. I am really looking forward to the Christmas in July Toy Run as it is the same exact ride, kids need toys all year long, not during the Christmas season!
A Greek and an Italian were talking one day, discussing who had the superior culture. Over coffee, the Greek says “Well, we built the Parthenon.” The Italreplies “We built the Coliseum.” The Greek retorts “We Greeks gave birth to mathematics.” The Italian, nodding, says “But we built the Roman Empire “And so on and so on until the Greek comes with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says “We invented sex!” The Italian replies “That is true, but it was the Italians who included women.
New Years Eve One Liners
A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. My new year’s resolution is to be more A new business was opening and one of the optimistic by keeping my cup half-full with ian owner’s friends wanted to send him flowers either rum, vodka, or whiskey. for the occasion. They arrived at the new New Years Eve is the only acceptable time to business site and the owner read the card, wear body glitter without being mistaken “Rest in Peace.” The owner was angry and for a stripper. called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist of the obvious My New Years resolution is 1080p I’m getmistake and how angry he was, the florist ting drunk just thinking about tomorrow replied, “Sir, I’m really sorry for the mistake, night. but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this, ‘Somewhere there is a funeral My New Year’s resolution is to stop hanging up taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, ‘Congratulations on your out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions. new location.’”
***************************************** An old Italian man in Brooklyn is dying. He calls his grandson to his bedside, “Guido, I wan’ you lissina me. I wan’ you to take-a my chrome plated ...38 revolver so you will always remember me.” “But grandpa, I really don’t like guns.. How about you leave me your Rolex watch instead?” “You lissina me, boy! Somma day you gonna be runna da business, you gonna have a beautiful wife, lotsa money, a big-a home and maybe a couple of bambinos. “ “Somma day you gonna come-a home and maybe finda you wife inna bed with another man. “Whatta you gonna do then? Pointa to you watch and say, ‘Times up!’ “?
***************************************** A guy out on the golf course takes a high speed ball right in the crotch. Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground. As soon as he could manage, he took himself to the doctor. He said ‘How bad is it doc? I’m going on my honeymoon next week and my fiancée is still a virgin - in every way’ The doctor told him, ‘I’ll have to put your willie in a splint to let it heal and keep it straight. It should be okay next week.’ He took four tongue depressors and formed a neat little 4 sided splint, and taped it all together; an impressive work of art. The guy mentions none of this to his girl, marries her, and goes on their honeymoon. That night in the motel room, she rips open her blouse to reveal her beautiful breasts. She said, ‘You’re the first; no one has EVER touched these.’ He immediately drops his pants and replies, ......’Look at this, ..........still in the CRATE!
I have only one resolution. To rediscover the difference between wants and needs. May I have all I need and want all I have. Happy New Year! If 2013 was a person, I’d sue him for pain and suffering and lost wages. People treat New Year’s like some sort of lifechanging event. If your life sucked last year, it’s probably still going to suck tomorrow. I want to get so drunk that if vampires bit my neck they’d get a Bloody Mary. Many things can be preserved in alcohol this New Years Eve. DIGNITY is not one of them. Just heard that in 2014 there will be a new device that can turn thoughts into speech. I have had that for years, it’s called alcohol. My New Years Resolution is to break my New Years Resolutions....That way I succeed at something! Anyone who says that alcohol is a depressant isn’t drinking enough of it. There have been many times in 2013, when I have annoyed you, distubed you, irritated you, and bugged the hell out of you....today I just wanna tell you I plan to continue in 2014!
GUY FORCE CYCLE This month I had the pleasure of interviewing the owner of GUY FORCE CYCLE, Larry Guy. Located at: 2300 Whitfield Park Dr., Unit K-2 Sarasota, FL 34243 941-752-2300 e-mail: email@example.com www.guyforcecycle.com
Larry has an extensive background in the motorcycle industry (along with talent and education) since he has been at it for nearly his whole life! Starting at the age of 9 when he got his first mini bike leading up to when he was 16 and his father bought him a 1968 FL (SWEET!). Larry was the manager for Manatee River HD when they were at the old location (where the Bike Shop is now) on 1st Street in Bradenton (then it was Bradenton HD). Now he has opened his own shop in 2011. I asked Larry (who’s only 55 yrs. young) these questions:
Opened business when? 2011 Who inspires you the most? His father Best way to reach you? Phone 941-752-2300 Have you been in any other magazines? No Other types of Media? Strictly word of mouth along with sponsoring some bike shows (Bear’s Den) and some car shows. We don’t do that full time (sponsoring bike shows). What made you interested in motorcycles? My whole family is into it! Larry was 8 or 9 when he got into racing with his father and brother. Have you done any work for “famous” people? Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, players for baseball teams, the catcher for the Pirates, Randall Kent. What do you offer? Full line of service on HD only, plus builds and trike conversions. We don’t do in-house machinery, but we have a machine shop that does work for us; Performance, Tires/Parts and Accessories; Extended Warranty, Sales & Service, and Consignment Sales (Financing available). Tell me about your family? Two brothers and Two sisters. Mother (who’s 89), nephews, and extended family in OH. His father passed away. What makes you different from most
shops? Our relationship with our customers. What made you think of the name? When they were racing, they used “G-Force” – everybody kept asking what the ”G” stood for so they decided to spell out their name and Larry says smiling “they think they’re a force!” Background in building? We have been building bikes since 1989-90’s (in OH) for HD dealerships; Now they are into Trike conversions and looking for the next trends. Who are the other employees?

Motorcycles, Racing, and Family Three things you hate? Liars, cheap people, cheaters Why the motorcycle industry? Get paid to do what I love! What is the future of the motorcycle industry? Trends…it’s all about a cycle of trends. I think the next wave will be the Hollywood small fairing (low fairing) going back to the early NESS days. What is your greatest achievement?
