CORAL GABLES, Fla., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Working in a big-firm environment has its perks. But for some, the ability to control their own destiny is second to none. Danny Espinosa and Carlos Santisteban, Jr., two young lawyers in their twenties, recently decided it was their time to make the often-dreaded leap of faith.
Typically, attorneys leave a firm with a healthy book of business. Danny only had a handful of clients, and Carlos was staff counsel for the Police Benevolent Association. "We capitalized our firm three months ago with $100 and four clients." The firm now has 71 clients; and, two of the firm's most recent settlements, alone, have solidified a year of the firm's overhead. When asked how they did it: "We've always believed there's no substitute for hard work, and sometimes it's not necessarily what you know, it's who you know."
Opening up a law firm in today's economy presents its own set of challenges. With inflationary pressures, rents are higher -- everything from office supplies to insurance has experienced upward fluctuation -- and the price of oil doesn't help. But despite the prospect of launching a firm in a soft economy, Danny and Carlos weren't worried about the financial side of their business. "We were confident in the type and quality of work we did, and we believe big risks lead to big rewards."
Espinosa Santisteban is a full-service law firm offering legal services in the areas of insurance litigation, construction litigation, personal injury, commercial real estate, and criminal law. The firm primarily represents property owners suffering property and casualty losses. The value offered to clients is unbelievable since clients do not pay a penny unless money is recovered. "Having previously represented insurance companies, we know how to strategize the claims process to get our clients paid immediately," said Daniel Espinosa, Esq., founding partner.
The young risk-takers opened up shop in the heart of Coral Gables. "Our strategic location allows us to file all documents across the street at the Coral Gables Courthouse, which moves each case that much faster," said Carlos Santisteban, co-founding partner. The firm's overall success comes from the unique understanding of property claims and the overlooked coverage benefits available to the insured.
