National Crime Victim Bar Association’s National Conference
Next week our Pedro Echarte will be one of the featured speakers during the 2017 National Crime Victim Bar Association’s National Conference in Portland, Oregon. The event, Civil Actions for Criminal Acts, offers attorneys a chance to network and learn from other attorneys in the field, and connect with victim advocates, counselors, program managers, attorneys, social workers, psychologists, researchers, nurses, volunteers, administrators, clergy, nonprofit managers, system-based service providers, and leaders from across the country.
It will include:
- 15 workshops and four plenary sessions covering topics such as violence against women, campus crimes, elder abuse, victims with disabilities, underserved populations, children and youth, and many more;
- Option to obtain Continuing Legal Education credits; and
- Networking opportunities over lunch.
Haggard Law Managing Partner Michael Haggard is the organization’s President-elect
About Pedro Echarte
In 2016, Echarte litigated a negligent security case involving a young father who was shot 6 times in an attempted home invasion at a condominium located in Miami. As a result of the crime, the 22-year-old was rendered an incomplete paraplegic. Echarte was able to earn a $10.6 million settlement result for the Haggard Law client and his family.
In 2015, Echarte delivered $2.45 million in settlements for victims and family members of a Super Bowl day shooting by arguing that security at a Liberty City apartment complex “was nonexistent.” In 2014, Echarte earned a settlement of $1.45 million for the family of Jamal Martin who was killed in front of his apartment.
