About Luis

Learn Luis’s areas of practice.

Born and raised in Havana, Cuba, I came over to America at a young age with my parents who were willing to abandon what lives they had back home so that I may have a bright future. I knew early in high school that I had to make them proud and that I had a profound interest in practicing law. I attended the University of Florida for my undergrad studies and then pursued my dream of becoming an attorney by applying and eventually graduating from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.

 

Today, I practice law in Boca Raton, FL, serving clients all throughout South Florida and occasionally in other areas of Florida. I have the ability to serve the Latin community as I am fluent in Spanish. I have trial and legal experience after working for the prosecutor's office in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Working now as a plaintiff's attorney, I am able to help my clients by being an experienced litigator.

Caring responsive attorney
I had a minor car accident which was completely the other driver’s fault. Her insurance company wanted to partially blame me. I contacted Mr Cartaya and he solved everything quickly and in my favor. I’m so happy I contacted him and only wish I had contacted him sooner. I highly recommended him.

I've never been so impressed with an attorney in my life!
My son hired Luis for two separate criminal cases he had in Broward County. He is very refreshingly honest and has an amazing rapport with both the client and the judges/prosecutors in the courtroom. I could tell he was highly respected by the judges in my son's cases, and as a result, the outcome was 100% the BEST outcome that could have happened. I knew all was going to be ok when we decided to hire Mr. Cartaya for my son, and I was right. HIGHLY recommend!

Will Fight for You!
Luis Cartaya is not only a well-versed, educated lawyer, he is also one of the most hard working and dedicated professionals I have even come into contact with. He always took the time to explain every option to me and when I made the decision to take my case to court, he was well-prepared and ready to fight for me (we won by the way). It was a great comfort to know that Mr. Cartaya had my back and treated my case as his own. He was always available to talk with me regarding issues I had - he even emailed me back when he was on a personal vacation in the South of France. I highly recommend Luis Cartaya, you will be in good hands.

BEST CHOICE
Luis layed out the different options I had for my case and the possible different outcomes very clearly so that I could make the right decision on te first consultation. He worked diligently on my case and fought for the results I wanted, which we got. Would highly recommend hiring him as your criminal defense attorney.

AMAZING, TOP NOTCH LAWYER
After being arrested for violating my felony probation (all 6 individuals cases), Luis Cartaya got me in to court, reinstated and out of jail that very next business day! That is almost unheard of! I highly, highly recommend him! He made me feel like I was family or a long time friend who needed help. I wouldn't ever call anyone else!

I hired Mr. .Cartaya to handle a dispute between my company and the Department of Labor. He was very easy to work with, stayed on top of things, made sure that we were able to come to some resolution and always took my calls. He's not only a great lawyer, he's a decent human being and an overall great guy. I would highly recommend them for all your legal needs

AN AMAZING LAWYER . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM
Excellent lawyer, after calling so many lawyers to see if I could get an affidavit of single status . He was the only one willing to create one for me and translate it. The best thing is how fast and efficiently he did this for me. Very professional and willing to go the extra mile. Outstanding Lawyer. I definitely will use him again......

Excellent Experience with Luis Cartaya
I was rear-ended and injured in an accident and after reading glowing reviews I decided to hire Mr. Cartaya. From the very beginning he took much time and dedication to my case, which was settled in our favor. Mr. Cartaya and his associates were very thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable and I would recommend his services to anybody.

An Amazing Lawyer
I don't know what I would've done without Luis Cartaya. I was in a rough position between neglectful landlords that couldn't care less about the living conditions of myself and my family. There was vermin infestations, flooding, air conditioning outages, and the list goes on. It got to the point where we dreaded entering our own home in fear of the next problem. We've been back and forth with management for months without the slightest course of action from them. No one seemed to care about our well-being until Luis joined our case. I don't know what magic he pulled, but the minute Luis started to help everything turned completely around. I would highly recommend him to anyone for any legal troubles.

Best lawyer
I unfortunately had the worst landlord ever, they didn't care if my family lived in a home that was infested with racoons and termites, or that we didn't have running water over the holidays. The landlords were even going to evict us during this time! The only person that cared was Luis Cartaya. He immediately jumped into action and was able to work his magic, so that we didn't have any additional costs and more important a roof over our heads. I can't even begin to express the gratitude myself and my family have for the prompt actions of Luis Cartaya. He not only had the utmost professionalism but actually cares about his clients and their wellbeing. Luis Cartaya will forever be the lawyer to turn to when in need.

Not only did Luis win my case and save me from a life time of problems, but he convinced the state to drop the entire case as if it never happened. The only lawyer I will ever go to.

Rainy Day Accident
I had been in an auto accident that occurred while driving a company vehicle in January 2016. It was a rainy day, my large truck carrying a lot of equipment failed to stop in time before hitting the car ahead of me. Everyone in front of me had to break erratically because someone had made a last ditch effort to turn into a parking lot, again, not making it easy to stop. Speed was not a factor, no one was injured, just a rainy day with a side of bad luck. I received a ticket for careless driving and was in turn dropped from my companies insurance for having accrued too many points to remain on their policy. My job requires me to drive hundreds of miles a day, and I didn't want to put that kind of abuse on my personal vehicle. I hired Luis Cartaya to handle my case at the recommendation of my wife. Communication flowed from start to finish, everyone within his firm was very upfront and friendly. Best of all? My ticket was completely dismissed. I get my company truck back tomorrow! If you want an efficient lawyer that won't rake you through the coals, give Luis a call. I'm glad I did!

Awesome
Luis took care of me getting me off on reckless when I was told there was a slim chance by many others. Always got back to me on what I needed to get done, and never made promises was always straight up with me about my case. Referred many buddies and he has done the same for all them.
