Because of this, Mr. De La Grana is acutely aware of what it takes to successfully litigate against insurance companies.

While in Law School Rafael also interned for the Honorable Judge Juan Ramirez, Jr., then Chief Judge of the Third District Court of Appeal.


 


After graduation, Rafael returned briefly to the Third District Court of Appeal, where he interned for the Honorable Judge Ivan Fernandez. Following his time at the Third DCA, Rafael was a Special Assistant Public Defender in Miami-Dade County.
