Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Francisco grew up with complete comprehension of both the English and Spanish languages. He began his education at the Academia del Perpetuo Socorro in San Juan, Puerto Rico, a college preparatory school, during which he attended Boston College for a summer. Later on, he became engaged in political and legal matters watching and learning from his mother’s distinguished legal career; she previously served as Solicitor General of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and, now, she sits as an Appellate Judge for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Because his mother is a graduated of Havard University and his father is a graduate of Tufts University, education is very important to Francisco’s family. His interest in the legal profession led him to attend the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico; he was graduated cum laude in 2013 with a B.A. in Political Science and and a minor in History. Although admitted to the study of law in Puerto Rico at the same institution, he is now a second-year law student at Louisiana State University where he continues his focus on construction law. Francisco relocated to Georgia and joined our firm in 2017.
Through his education, previous work as a paralegal and being fluent in Spanish, Francisco is able to grant a broader spectrum of clients’ services by serving as a bridge between Spanish and English-speaking peoples that reside in Georgia who need construction law and business law services. Francisco is well-suited to join our practice as he has honed his legal skills over 5 years actively working within the legal community, in both the public and private sectors. In addition to his experience as a paralegal for a top-tier law suit in San Juan, he has clerked at the Court of Appeals of Puerto Rico and at the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico.
Francisco regularly assist our clients with all of their construction law related matters including such areas of practice as preparing and filing materialmen’s liens, preparing and filing Miller Act and Payment Bond Claims, business structuring for the Spanish community, and construction litigation support. Clients have found his professional demeanor very appealing as well as his understanding of our clients’ needs.
During his free time, he enjoys reading science-fiction, working with technology, cycling and actively participating in motorsport. He is very family oriented, with his immediate family also in the process of relocating to Georgia. He is becoming actively engaged in the community and is looking forward to making Thomasville his home for many years to come.
