When the stakes are high, you want lawyers that have the experience and the passion to win. Anselmo Alegria and Andrew Barovick have been practicing law for over 25 years. Both attorneys devoted the early parts of their careers to public service, where they helped victims of crime achieve justice, and learned the courtroom skills necessary to be forceful advocates on behalf of their clients.
Attorneys Algeria and Barovick went on to work for big firms, where they gained additional, valuable experience, but also saw that clients were treated as “files” that could be handled by any one of a number of lawyers. The clients felt undervalued, and the various lawyers had to read up on each client’s file every time they needed to do anything of substance with their case. This wasted the lawyers’ time and frustrated the clients.
When Anselmo Alegria and Andrew Barovick decided to create their own firm, they had a different vision. They would treat each client like an individual; they would know each other’s cases, so that if the assigned attorney was busy, his partner could be available to help the client; they would be selective in taking on new cases, limiting the number of them that are active at any one time, so that no client would feel “lost in the shuffle”; they would always have highly-trained legal assistants available to help their clients if both attorneys were busy and they would strive to distinguish themselves by working hard, being prepared, and presenting judges and juries with every available argument and piece of evidence in support of their clients.
Alegria & Barovick have been working to achieve their vision since they founded their firm in February, 2013. In that short time, they have obtained significant recoveries for their medical malpractice and personal injury clients. But they have also obtained SSD benefits for scores of disabled individuals who had been denied those same benefits when they first applied for them.
