RJS Law, SouthShore’s Source For Civil Litigation

By Amy Schechter

The law can be difficult to navigate on a good day, but when you have experienced a wrongdoing and have the added stress of your situation upon your shoulders, you need to turn to someone whom you can trust. Under the leadership of Rolando J. Santiago, a U.S. Marine, Florida Supreme Court certified mediator and arbitrator, author, and attorney, RJS Law Group is the preeminent firm for legal advice and representation. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Honduras, Santiago is fluent in both Spanish and English and is passionate about serving the community.

Prior to opening the law firm in 2007, he served from 2003-2006 in the City of Tampa’s Land Use Section as an assistant city attorney honing his real estate and land use skills. Before that, he served from 2000-2003 as general counsel managing a 10 member in-house international corporate legal team that managed the acquisition of over $200 million in telecommunication assets, litigation and general corporate matters for Boston based American Tower Corporation in Mexico City.

RJS Law Group also includes the talents of Attorney Greg Grossman, who prior to joining RJS Law Group in 2012 served as the lead litigation attorney of the Fair Housing Section at Bay Area Legal Services. Santiago’s practice focuses on personal injury, real estate transactions, business transactions and civil litigation. Attorney Grossman specializes in personal injury litigation, real estate litigation and real estate transactions. Santiago is also among an elite group of lawyers that provide Florida Inventory Attorney Designation services for solo law practitioners who experience the need for a qualified party to assume control of their practice in the event of a qualifying circumstance that results in an attorney’s extended or permanent absence, such as military deployment, disbarment or death.

No case is too big or small for RJS Law Group. Ask the Ruskin gentleman hit while riding his bicycle home from work or the couple returning to Apollo Beach from a vacation who suffered a broken clavicle when rear-ended by a tractor trailer on I-75 in Virginia, or the wife of a US Marine who suffered a catastrophic brain injury in a head-on crash with a truck in Japan. To add to their credentials, RJS Law Group holds a record verdict of $716 million arising from a 2008 tragic wrongful death crash in Apollo Beach and is currently representing 28 victims of the Airbus A320-233 (TACA Flight 390) crash that overran the runway after landing at Tegucigalpa’s Toncontín International Airport. RJS Law Group was able to help when other attorneys simply did not know how. Santiago ascribes their achievements to their qualifications and love of practicing law.

“We attribute our success to the skills of our attorneys and excellent staff. Our attorneys possess high academic credentials and are committed to our clientele. We have earned a reputation for conducting ourselves with the highest level of ethics and professionalism,” said Santiago.
