_dsc0274_smallAndres “Andy” Montero began his career at the Miami-Dade County Public Defender’s office where he gained the necessary trial skills to defend the rights of the injured against powerful insurance companies. In just his first 2 ½ years as an Assistant Public Defender, Andy tried over 40 jury cases ranging from Grand Theft to serious Life Felonies.

Notably, in defending his first murder case, Andy was able to demonstrate to the jury the prosecutors had accused the wrong man of 1st Degree Murder. After only a five-day trial, Andy obtained a jury verdict of “Not Guilty” for his innocent client. Andy opened his own private practice in 1995 and has been vigorously defending the rights of others in both State and Federal cases. In 2004, Andy joined longtime colleague, Jaime Suarez.

Together they formed the Law Offices of Suarez & Montero and created a formidable force fighting insurance companies. Mr. Montero has become one of the premier civil plaintiff’s attorneys helping those who have suffered serious injuries from the negligence of corporations and others. For over 25 years, Andy has defended the rights of the injured and can help you. This year alone, Andy was able to obtain $4.2 million-dollar settlement in only 5 months for a Canadian tourist who had been visiting South Florida. To date, Mr. Montero has received over $20 million dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients and will continue to fight for your rights.
