Thank you for visiting our site! I am the founding member of the firm and I have been practicing law since 1993. My first law related job was with a well known Fort Lauderdale, Florida law firm that handled aviation, personal injury, wrongful death and defective product cases. I learned a lot from my former partners, all of whom are great trial lawyers themselves. Then in 1999, I opened my own law firm in Miami, Florida and since then my firm and I have provided high quality and affordable legal services to families of victims involved in severe accidents.
Today, Montoya Law, P.A. includes a team of excellent attorneys and staff, all of whom I truly love and respect. We all have different talents and bring many years of experience to the firm. Many of us have handled personal injury, wrongful death and aviation cases while others have focused on complex business related matters. All in all, we make a great team! Some of our notable cases and accomplishments include the handling of over 60 passenger cases in the AirAsia™ Flight QZ8501 that crashed in the Java Sea in 2014, representing the crew of the West Caribbean Airways Flight 708 crash in Machiques Venezuela in 2005, representing families of the September 11 attacks, litigating against Ford Motor Company™, Bridgestone™ and Firestone™ in cases stemming from Ford Explorer™ rollovers and tire tread separations, which caused many deaths and left thousands with serious and debilitating injuries, and helping families injured by defective "Chinese Drywall" sold by U.S. and foreign companies. We have also assisted families in seeking compensation for smoke related illnesses such as cancer and emphysema in cases against RJ Reynolds™ and other tobacco companies, and we have successfully sought compensation for families of passengers who died in the American Airlines™ Flight 965 crash near Cali, Colombia in 1995.
I am proud that our firm continues to handle all types of cases, from simple matters to complex issues and that we continue serve families in the prosecution of catastrophic injury matters, class actions and mass tort litigation cases. These matters are difficult and require a great deal of capital, experts and a considerable investment of time. We are proud that we can offer all of this to our clients.
Because of our excellent work, we enjoy national and international recognition for our efforts in holding responsible parties accountable for their actions and therefore, keeping families safe. We have received recognition from prestigious legal organizations and media outlets such as the Martindale.com, Miami’s Daily Business Review, Florida Trend Magazine and other media outlets that have surveyed clients, attorneys and judges, all of who have consistently ranked members of the firm as “TOP ATTORNEY” in the field of civil litigation. I personally have been interviewed by national and international media companies as an expert on international aviation accident matters involving complex and novel issues.
My firm and I are “results” driven and we strive to resolve cases while maintaining the highest level of client satisfaction. We hope you will consider us for your next legal matter.
