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.

To save money on auto insurance cost may seem impossible. Actually, there are several ways in which you can reduce your auto insurance payment, without sacrificing your coverage.

First, multiple car discounts are offered when a family insures all their vehicles with the same company. Also, if the family decides to purchase additional insurances, such as homeowner’s or life insurance, premiums may be reduced as well.

Consider buying the right amount of insurance. Auto insurance is designed to protect you in cases of major losses, a big accident or the theft of your car, for example. Having a higher deductible, or paying for minor losses yourself, could save you a lot of money in the long-run.

This past month in Broward County, there have been three cases in which good Samaritans have helped police find hit and run suspects.  David Chirla, a 17-year-old junior at Nova High, witnessed a crash in Davie, and immediately decided to make a U-turn to follow the hit and run driver. The chase ended at the suspect’s home, where Chirla parked his car behind the suspect’s to block him in until police arrived. The crash’s victim suffered minor injuries to her face and arm, and was taken to Memorial Hospital Pembroke. In another case, Carmen Gonzalez was watching when a driver struck a bicyclist near Fort Lauderdale. She followed the driver long enough to snap a photo of the vehicle, including the tag, with her cellphone. This information led detectives to Karen Goettert, who admitted to having struck the bicyclist. The crash victim is currently treating his injuries with a chiropractor. When Thomas Hanley witnessed a hit and run in Pompano Beach, which killed motorcyclist Benjamin Pirofsky, he chased after the intoxicated driver, urging her to return to the scene. When she refused, he led deputies to her home. Though police advise people to never put themselves in harm’s way, they acknowledge that they rely on the public’s help to solve cases.
