Christian is a Miami native that comes from a family of business owners and entrepreneurs. His family left Cuba to escape tyranny and give their families a better life. After arriving in the U.S., his family worked hard to open businesses to create better opportunities for the next generation.

It should be no surprise then, that Christian is driven to help business owners fight off frivolous and potentially devasting cases. Christian’s passion and dedication have helped him develop an impressive track record of successfully protecting business owners, and have gained him a reputation for not being afraid to try cases.                                                                

He has successfully represented business owners in jury trials defending various frivolous claims ranging from breach of contract claims to shareholder disputes to employment discrimination. He also led the litigation team that successfully fended off a potential class action lawsuit in Federal Court against a local for alleged violations of the T.C.P.A. Mindful of the costs of litigation, Christian has also helped several business owners negotiate and avoid potentially devasting damages in overtime cases and ADA Title III cases.                                                                          

Christian has also presented to various legal professionals on topics ranging from A.D.A. Title III to Condominium Law. He was also been interviewed by the Daily Business Review, and that article was also republished by Yahoo! Finance.
