About me

My clients become life long friends. I think is important to treat everyone with respect, kindness and compassion. Nothing makes me happier that to make a positive difference in the lives our client's and their families. When my family came to this country from Cuba in 1962 we only had each other and the desire to work hard and succeed. I know what it is like to lose everything and start from nothing. This experience fuels my desire to help others that have suffered loses and injuries due to someone elses negligence. I am committed to personal and professional growth. I believe that if we are not growing we are dying. Committment to exceptional client service drives us each day. That means returning calls promptly and going the extra mile for our clients.
