Mr. Alberto E. Lugo-Janer is a Senior litigation attorney in the Orlando office of Private Corporate Counsel His litigation practice includes many areas of the law, including Business Law, Real Estate, Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, Civil Rights, Criminal Defense, Class Actions and Appellate Practice. He has been involved in complex litigation for over 40 years in State and Federal Courts, at both the trial and appellate levels, all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. As a seasoned litigator, he has the ability, knowledge and experience to navigate and dominate a multiplicity of complex and varied legal matters. His capacity has been demonstrated by his successful litigation in multi-district mass torts, national and state class actions, and business torts involving multi-state corporations.
Mr. Lugo-Janer was one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys in the San Juan DuPont Plaza Hotel Fire litigation, where over $200 million were recovered for the plaintiffs, and has obtained judgments for many millions for corporations in litigations in Florida. Mr. Lugo-Janer directs his practice at resolving complex matters and obtaining favorable results in the most expeditious and economical fashion possible. He is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the rights of individuals and businesses in the face of overreaching by powerful business entities and the government.
In addition to his Juris Doctor Degree, Mr. Lugo-Janer earned a Master of Law Degree (LL.M.) at the University of Pennsylvania Law School in Philadelphia, with the grade of “excellent” in his master’s thesis on Constitutional Law. Because of his academic qualifications and proven litigation skills, Mr. Lugo-Janer was recruited for a faculty position at the University of Puerto Rico Law School to be in charge of a Legal Aid Clinic class, where he taught civil and criminal litigation and appellate practice to his students. Mr. Lugo-Janer has been residing in Windermere, Florida, since 1992.
Mr. Lugo-Janer has authored multiple substantive court briefs at trial and appellate levels, including briefs to the Supreme Court of the United States and the Supreme Courts of Florida and Puerto Rico. In Puerto Rico, the current law related to powers-of-attorney was prompted by a case that Mr. Lugo-Janer brought to the Supreme Court there, and the current state of the law related to firearms there is the offspring of changes that he was instrumental in implementing in the island years ago. In Florida, he participated as one of the attorneys in a class action that was the only one of its type that has been successful in the United States, and he was ahead of his time in advocating in court for changes to the Florida medical informed consent law, which changes have since become the norm. Nationally, the historical and constitutional analysis that he made and the conclusions that he reached in his master’s thesis in 1982 have now, over 30 years later, been adopted by the Supreme Court of the United States as the law of the land, and are now being followed and implemented by state and federal courts throughout the Nation.
Pursuant to his commitment to defend our Constitutional Rights, Mr. Lugo-Janer is a Benefactor Life Member of the National Rifle Association and a Senior Member of the Unified Sportsmen of Florida.
