Powerhouse Litigation Firm

You may wonder why we chose to name the firm Estrella, LLC. Simply put, it was in honor of the firm’s founder, William Estrella. Except, it was not merely to honor him but to remind each and every attorney, from associate to member, the value of hard work, dedication and determination. For over 50 years our Founder has led the way and inspired many of us by his exemplary standards of ethics and discipline when handling some of the most important litigation cases for top clients in Puerto Rico. William Estrella has become the firm’s “magnetic compass” to which we all go to for guidance when litigating cases in hopes to tap into the treasure of wisdom his many years of litigating experience has to offer.

As one of the oldest firms in Puerto Rico, Estella, LLC built its reputation by delivering thoughtful, comprehensive and cost-effective litigation strategies to some of Puerto Rico’s highest-profile companies. Our attorneys are results driven and diligent in preparing for trial, leaving no stone unturned. Our top priority in each lawsuit is ensuring that our clients’ long-term goals shape our litigation strategy so that our clients succeed and prosper.

NITA-Trained Lawyers

Estrella, LLC’s trial lawyers are trained through the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA), a well-respected organization that offers intensive advocacy training. The skills gained during NITA training prepare our attorneys for the heavy demands of litigation. Our attorneys anticipate the challenges that arise during litigation and formulate creative and effective responses. Our clients can relax knowing that our attorneys will keep their best interests in mind. Throughout each lawsuit, our attorneys work diligently to attain the best possible outcome to match the client’s long-term goals.
