He also works with contracts and pre-suit negotiations, and his fluency in English, Spanish, and Portuguese allows him to assist clients from several different countries. His professional background in Brazil in corporate law, civil litigation, and real estate allows him to work with diverse matters and provide the clients with the best legal solution.
He is a volunteer for organizations that provide assistance to immigrants, such as the Florida Immigration Coalition (FLIC) and the Americans for Immigrant Justice (AIJ). His enthusiasm to help people and the constant seek for justice is a great representation of our work philosophy.
