Luis, founding member of the firm, was one of the first Cuban Americans to graduate from the University of Miami Law School in 1970. He earned degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration during his collegiate years.
Starting as a general practitioner, he later developed a products liability practice, when that area of law was in its infancy, aided by his engineering and construction industry background.
Over 20 years ago, he settled a case for the loss of use of one arm, for the unprecedented present value of 2.7 million dollars with a 10 million dollar payout. Since then, Luis has obtained verdicts and settlements worth millions of dollars on behalf of clients in Florida state and federal courts.
To this day, he still personally inspects all products for the firm's products liability cases, as well as assists in developing the liability strategies and selecting the most suitable experts for the cases. He is a certified circuit court mediator, arbitrator and a PAD alumni. Luis has been married to his wife Bell for 42 years and is the father of partner Todd.
