MIAMI, FL—July 06, 2022— Freidin Brown, P.A. is thrilled to welcome its newest attorney, Jaime A. Alvarez, Jr., who will represent the firm’s clients in medical malpractice and serious personal injury cases.
Prior to joining the firm in April, Mr. Alvarez was the Chair of the Medical Malpractice Group at Foley & Mansfield’s Miami office, where he defended doctors in civil lawsuits and disciplinary proceedings. With more than a decade of legal experience, Mr. Alvarez has been recognized for his defense work, and is looking forward to using this experience to represent plaintiffs.
“In Florida and around the country, I was seeing a shift in the healthcare system where the focus was changing from providing quality medical care to increasing profits,” said Alvarez. “As a result, I feared that health care providers would be given less resources due to cost-cutting measures and be faced with higher patient volumes which is the route most often taken in any business.”
“I have great admiration and respect for the doctors and nurses who I represented over the years and who service this community. As someone who comes from a family with doctors (my father in particular), the decision to leave the defense world was not an easy one, but it was time for me to make the move,” said Alvarez.
“From the moment we met with Jaime, we shared his thoughts regarding the new healthcare system where profits are valued over the quality of service,” said Jonathan Freidin, managing attorney at the firm. “We’ve been combatting this unfortunate trend by seeking justice for the victims of medical malpractice, and we couldn’t have found a better lawyer to help us join the fight.”
On the defense side, Mr. Alvarez was intimately involved with the strategies and approaches taken by defendant doctors and their insurance companies in litigation. Now, Mr. Alvarez uses his unique perspective as a former malpractice defense attorney to represent plaintiffs in medical malpractice and personal injury lawsuits, such as cases involving birth injuries, quadriplegia, stroke, and other catastrophic or life-changing injuries.
With its main office in Miami, Florida, Freidin Brown, P.A. is a boutique medical malpractice, complex injury, and whistleblower law firm representing plaintiffs throughout Florida and the United States.
