Personal injury attorney Joseph J. LoRusso stands out in a crowd. His stance easily identifies prior basketball aspirations and his quiet assurance is readily recognized, as is his innate strength.
Mr. LoRusso’s stint with the Broward County Public Defender’s office during the “Help Me Howard” era testifies to his expertise. Since the year 2000, Mr. LoRusso has specialized in personal injury cases, and today he operates offices in both Broward County and Orlando with numerous contacts throughout the State of Florida, as well as the entire country. Over the years he has amassed quite a number of helpful contacts in the field, including members of his family. Mr. LoRusso’s brother-in-law is a personal injury/criminal attorney in New York and they have been known to join forces if and when necessary.
Mr. LoRusso operates out of a satellite office in Orlando, which gives him the absolute flexibility to readily handle cases statewide. As such, Mr. LoRusso will travel anywhere if he feels he can assist in a matter. Mr. LoRusso’s law firm deals with various practice areas and he asserts his desire to speak to anybody who may be seeking legal assistance relative to said practice areas. “I will talk to anyone who has had an accident to answer any questions they may have. And I can represent anyone who is not at fault and has insurance coverage.”
Aside from his ability to bring his expertise to his clients’ locations, what also sets Mr. LoRusso’s firm apart from others is his personal attention to clients. “I am the one you talk to and the one who will handle your case! Most firms,” Mr. LoRusso explains, “send an investigator. I meet with my clients and encourage phone calls. You will get a call back within 24 to 48 hours, guaranteed.” Mr. LoRusso also boasts about his support staff, sharing that “they are talented and most reliable. Jessica Montalvo and Christine Montelongo, my para-legals, are both most valuable assets to our firm.”
Mr. LoRusso’s love of competition is part of what makes him so successful. Growing up, basketball was Joe’s passion. He graduated Milky Way/Mars All-American from Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, New York and earned his Business Degree from Hofstra University in Long Island, New York on a college basketball scholarship. The call of justice enticed Mr. LoRusso to attend law school rather than play professional basketball in Italy, but he never lost his competitive spirit. As a result, Mr. LoRusso graduated in 1998 from St. Thomas University Law School in Miami.
Since his law school graduation, Mr. LoRusso has been in South Florida, but he maintains homes in Atlantic City and New York. He is most proud of his private home off Las Olas where his basement home theater and basketball court are most enticing for nephew Matthew and niece Marina. Mr. LoRusso still plays basketball at his home and St. Anthony’s church. He lifts weights and indulges in real estate and cars.
If you have any questions regarding an accident or wrongful death give Mr. LoRusso a call at 954-715-3260. He will be most happy to speak with you and keep you informed about your matter.
