ACCIDENT? Just Call Pendas.
Lou Pendas was raised and educated here in Central Florida. He attended to University of Central Florida (Class of 1988) B.S.B.A. and later to the St. Thomas University (Class of 1996) J.D. He was admitted in 1997 on the Florida Bar. He belongs to the Orange County and American Bar Associations and The Association of Trial Lawyers of America. Lou Pendas has always sought to insure that his clients are cared for throughout the legal process. He believes that the foundation of client satisfaction is communication. It was his devotion to this principle early on that insured his firm’s success. Also, He has devoted a tremendous amount of his time and treasure to helping the most needy in the community.
He became an attorney once he realized there was a need to better serve those who are disadvantaged and have become victims of accidents. He personally witnessed many accident victims poorly represented which resulted in an inability to fully recover from the consequences of the accident. Often times their lives spiraling out of control because of the financial hardship suffered due to their inability to work. Many live check by check to pay and once they miss one paycheck everything falls apart. He felt he could help those victims get back on their feet and help them return to a prosperous life.
Recognizing the needs of the clients and understanding what they are going through helped him to be a better attorney. Also having represented insurance companies for many years and understanding the internal workings of those companies allows him the unique opportunity to obtain better results for my clients. And of course the experience that he received having practiced law for nearly 20 years is priceless in his efforts to better serve all his clients.
