This summer, Cecere Santana, PA celebrates 10 years since partners Michael Cecere and Erick Santana decided to join forces and open Cecere Santana, PA. Attorneys Cecere and Santana met in the early 90s when they were both insurance adjusters for State Farm Insurance Company. Their paths crossed again in 1996 when they attended Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern University. After graduating and practicing law for several years, the attorneys decided to combine their years of experience in personal injury and property claims and in 2008 they opened their first office in Sunrise.

At the time, the firm consisted of two attorneys and three case managers. Since then, Cecere Santana has moved to a larger office in Plantation and the team has grown to four attorneys and more than 10 paralegals, case managers and support staff, with the sole purpose of offering our clients the best legal representation and the best customer service in the industry. In the last 10 years, Cecere Santana has helped thousands of clients hurt in automobile accidents, slip and falls, negligent security and all types of personal injury cases. We have also collected millions of dollars for home and business owners who have suffered losses to their properties due to hurricanes, storms, fires, water damages or other types of property claims.

At Cecere Santana, our priority is to offer our customers not only sound legal advice, but also excellent customer service. Our attorneys make a point of speaking directly to our clients when they sign with our firm, but also throughout their case. Our staff is trained to assist our clients throughout the legal process, guiding them every step of the way. As a result, our clients are our best referral source. Most of our new clients come to us referred by a friend or family member.

If you have been injured on the job or in a motor vehicle accident or your home has suffered property damage, then you might find yourself in need of an experienced attorney to assist you in getting the compensation that you are entitled to. Oftentimes, insurance companies do not want to pay out when the time comes and will try to deny perfectly legitimate claims. That’s where our law office comes in. At Cecere Santana, P.A., we will fight aggressively for you to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to, taking your case all the way to trial if need be.

Cecere Santana, P.A. specializes in personal injury, Homeowner’s Claims and workers’ compensation claims. We are experienced attorneys who have plenty of cases under our belts to validate our credentials. We are known for taking cases to trial and fighting insurance companies as far as it takes until we reach a settlement that is satisfactory to our clients. We will help you obtain the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve when you are injured or suffer from property damage. No case is too big or too small for our office.

Our reputation for winning trails precedes us and benefits our clients. Taking a case to trial and losing can be costly and time-consuming for insurance companies, so when they find out that we’re representing you and that we fully intend to take your case to trial if need be, then they might be more likely to come to a fair settlement outside of court. Our legal team knows the inner workings of insurance companies first-hand, which is part of what gives us such an edge in fighting them. We strive to provide our clients with the best possible representation and fight aggressively for their rights both within and outside the courtroom.
