Luis Haquia has a very simple philosophy when it comes to his clients. “Its always an honor and privilege for me to be someone’s lawyer, their ‘abogado,’ and I give them the best representation our firm has to offer.” He attributes his success as a lawyer to an understanding of jurors gained from experience.
“I spent most of my life in Hudson County and Essex County. I know the people from those counties, including the Spanish speaking clients which is the reason why I understand the how juries in Hudson and Essex Counties think.”
Luis Haquia has successfully tried some of the most difficult cases in New York and New Jersey.
