J. Andrew Velez, Esq.

A partial representation of Andrew’s prior successes include:
Arbitration Award $1,500,000 for a client who fractured his spine when an unidentified motorist changed lanes and hit the client’s vehicle causing it to veer off the road and hit a pole.
Jury Award $217,900 for a client whose car was rear-ended. She required two surgeries to her knee and back three years post. The insurance company initially denied her claim as not because of the minor damage to the car and that the surgeries were too remote in time.
Settlement $120,000 for a client with two disc herniations and two epidural injections.
The settlement was reached on the eve of the trial.
