Esteemed attorney Luis Cartaya has joined Weisberg & Associates as the third attorney in the firm. Luis is a zealous and relentless attorney who has worked in the legal field since 2011 primarily working in the areas of criminal defense, DUI/DWI and traffic infractions.
Luis was born and raised in Havana, Cuba. Willing to abandon what lives they had there, his parents brought him over to the United States at a young age so that he may have a bright future.
Being a communist country, Cuba is a place where people enjoy very few, if any, civil rights. This oppressive form of government was the primary motivator of Luis’s pursuit of the law. Throughout his academic career, Luis strived to obtain a strong knowledge of the law in order to ensure this great nation continues to protect its citizen’s liberties and freedoms through its constitution.
Luis attended the University of Florida for his undergraduate studies and then pursued his dream of becoming an attorney by graduating from the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law.
During his studies, Luis gained valuable experience by interning at the Office of the State Attorney, in and for Palm Beach County, Florida, as well as with the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office in Kentucky, where he was charged with prosecuting various misdemeanor violations of the law as a special prosecutor.
