Attorney Nathanael Prada is a graduate of the New York University School of Law. While at NYU, Mr. Prada was granted admission into the prestigious Law Review where he helped direct the editing and the publication of an article on contract law. Since 2002, Mr. Prada has been working in the legal field, including working for a personal injury law firm, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an international law firm in New York, and a general law practitioner. All of these experiences have molded Mr. Prada as a person and his philosophy regarding the practice of law. His primary area of experience is in employment and civil law.
Mr. Prada was born in Matanzas, Cuba and raised in Costa Rica and Miami, Florida. He enjoys strong ties to the Hispanic community in South Florida. He is a native Spanish speaker and is proud of his Cuban culture. A graduate of Florida International University's Political Science and Economics programs, Mr. Prada is truly a product of our community. Throughout his life, Mr. Prada has worked closely with the Hispanic community, including working with the less fortunate or recent arrivals by distributing food and clothing to migrant workers, providing English tutoring, and working for a Latin American not-for-profit organization focused on the future of a free Cuba.
While at NYU Mr. Prada was a Petrie Foundation Scholar and awarded with significant scholarships to aid his studies. Mr. Prada studied under some of the nation's leading professors, many of which are now deans of leading law schools throughout the country.
During his tenure with a general practice attorney, Mr. Prada worked closely with clients in the field of Personal Injury. Mr. Prada developed strong relationships with the firm's clients and handled most communications with clients. It was here that Mr. Prada began to appreciate the importance of keeping clients informed regarding the progress of their case. This belief has become one of the founding principles of Prada Legal.
While at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Miami he was presented with an award for his hard work and dedication to representing minority groups' rights in employment. Mr. Prada worked for a variety of client while at the EEOC including: a victim of work place harassment due to race, a victim of sexual harassment, and a group of employees who were discriminated against due to their skin color and accents. This experience left a strong impression in the mind of Mr. Prada. He has seen that far too many people in South Florida go without legal representation due to the prohibitive costs. This is why at Prada Legal I work with my clients to structure flexible payment plans that will allow almost anyone to secure legal counsel.
At Prada Legal I treat each client like they are important regardless of the monetary stakes. We understand that if you are consulting with an attorney, the matter is important to you and will have a significant effect on your life. We respect the responsibility that you have entrusted us with and we work hard to meet your high standards.
Mr. Prada lives in South Florida with his wife and two daughters. When not in the office, he enjoys Miami's beaches and outdoor activities with his young family. Mr. Prada is an avid reader who loves studying Pulitzer Prize winning authors and other historical books.
