MIAMI – (March 16, 2016) – Statewide law firm Broad and Cassel today announced the addition of associate Francisco Armada to the Miami office as a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group.
Armada rejoins Broad and Cassel after relocating from Colorado where he worked with a firm on residential mortgage backed securities litigation, bankruptcy and non-compete agreement litigation. He has a background in general civil litigation, complex commercial litigation, appellate law, banking law, medical malpractice, probate litigation and employment law, among other areas. Preceding the start of his legal career, Armada served for five years as an officer in the U.S. Army. His experience there and as a law clerk for Judge Dorian S. Damoorgian in the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal coupled with his fluency in Spanish provides Armada with a unique perspective on the complex and high-growth area of law he practices.
Armada holds a bachelor’s degree from Tufts University in Massachusetts. He went on to earn his juris doctor degree from University of Miami School of Law, where he was a member of the school’s law review and served as a certified legal intern at the U.S. Attorney’s Office Economic Crimes Division. While there, he assisted in white-collar criminal litigation.
News of Armada’s addition follows several recent announcements from Broad and Cassel in South Florida and across the state. The firm announced 17 of their South Florida attorneys were nominated in South Florida Legal Guide’s 2016 Top Lawyers list.
