Founded in 2000 by Attorney Nelson Peña, The Peña Law Firm prides itself on being a small firm that provides one-on-one legal counsel to clients. As a small firm, we limit our caseloads so that our attorneys are able to devote personal attention to each and every client. This allows our attorneys to provide clients with the close management needed to pursue their legal remedies and obtain the compensation they deserve. Our office works as a team when it comes to handling your case. Your case facts and issues will be evaluated through the eyes of more than one attorney, and supported by several legal assistants to devise and implement the best possible legal strategies.

Attorney Nelson Peña received his Juris Doctorate degree from Nova Southeastern University Law School in 1990 and is certified to practice law in the state of Florida. Prior to founding The Peña Law Firm, Attorney Peña spent ten years working as a trial attorney at the Public Defender’s Office in Miami. There he learned how to zealously advocate for his client’s rights and gained invaluable knowledge with the South Florida court system while participating in over 150 jury trials.

Client Compensation and Attorney’s Fees

The Peña Law Firm represents clients on a contingency fee basis, which means that our payment is contingent upon you winning. The percentage we are entitled to receive under this agreement is prescribed by the Florida Supreme Court and depends upon the amount you recover. You will owe no fees or costs unless we obtain a monetary recovery in your case. Further, no monies will be paid out from your insurance settlement or jury verdict until you approve it.

We also offer free new client consultation to individuals in need of our legal services for personal injury and automobile accident cases.

To learn more about how we can help you or to discuss the facts of your case with our attorneys, call us  24/7 at (305) 231-9933 or email our business manager Terri at to schedule your free consultation.
