Having interned with The Haggard Law Firm as a law student in 2008, Pedro P. Echarte III rejoined the firm as an associate in October 2013. Pedro handles an array of cases for the firm, including negligent security, drowning and other catastrophic personal injury cases. Pedro began his career practicing commercial litigation as an associate at Greenberg Traurig.
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.
From 2011 to 2012, he served as a law clerk to the Hon. Adalberto Jordan on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. At the end of his clerkship term, Pedro joined the law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner, practicing primarily in the areas of commercial litigation and antitrust. Pedro received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law in 2010, graduating magna cum laude and serving as a member of the University of Miami Law Review. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 2006 from Bucknell University where he majored in philosophy and business management.
