Robert Becerra

About Me

I am a Florida Bar Board Certified Specialist in International Law and have a keen interest in international business and its ability to lift the standards of living of those who are prepared to take advantage of its opportunities. Prior to going to law school, I was a sales manager at an export management company. I always use that experience of having been in the "real world" of international business to assist my clients in achieving good results for the variety of litigation matters, whether civil or criminal, within which they may be embroiled.
