Flood Damage as a consequence of home renovation
Ruben Socarras was referred to us by our cousin who is a lawyer in Miami. We had an issue of a flood from our shower as a result of renovations. Our general Contractor refused to accept responsibility and placed a lien on our property. After reviewing the file, Ruben told us that his goal was to settle with a minimum of legal costs and to avoid going to court. He succeeded in obtaining mediation and a settlement that was very satisfactory for us. We were always kept up to date and consulted. His friendly calm demeanor and honesty were much appreciated.
