Attorney & Mediator
A familiar face and a professional demeanor. I have been encouraging parties to settle their claims my entire legal career.
Robert Rivera – My Story
Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and raised in Miami since the age of two, Robert has been immersed hispanic culture most of his life. After graduating from the University of Miami in 2002 with a degree in Finance, he moved to Orlando and attended Barry University School of Law. Robert has practiced law since 2007, first representing large banking institutions for collection claims, then shifting his practice in 2013 to representing injured workers (mostly Spanish speaking clients). He rounded out his law practice running his own department and small staff, but not before briefly representing employers and their insurance carriers defending legal claims brought against them.
Why Work With Me?
I have had the opportunity to represent corporate clients, insurance companies and injured workers for varying periods of time in my career and have become familiar with each of their needs. The tactics you use for one client likely will not be effective with all your clients, use my experience to close that case.
Difficult cases are not generally pleasant to deal with, and are more than likely better off settled. Those challenges can become more manageable if you adjust your approach in a manner that makes the dialog more palatable. That is why it is important to have that neutral and objective voice helping you come to terms with them.
