Since this summer, he began a new chapter in his professional life by becoming the new partner of Bond Sánchez-Gordon, one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.

“I decided to be part of the Bond Sánchez Gordon firm that represents civil cases of people who have been victims of catastrophic accidents to continue my service as an advocate for the communities that I appreciate so much,” he says. Sánchez-Gordon was for more than 20 years, a judge in a civil court where he had to decide neutrally on cases related to legal liability in catastrophic and death accidents, compensation for damages, among other related issues.

"Many of the same cases that I saw as a judge, I now represent them in this office," he says.

And he clarifies that although there are thousands of lawyers, she and her team make a difference.

“None have my experience. I was already on the other side. Not everyone has a judge as a lawyer, representing such cases. I have a history of knowing how a judge thinks and the experience of evaluating cases, ”he says.
