Meet Catalina Rodriguez
Catalina Rodriguez is a first party insurance claim attorney at the Orlando office. First party claims involve holding your own property insurance company to the terms of your policy after a claim event. In Florida, we see a lot of hurricane and storm damage and when the insurance company refuses to pay a fair amount, you need an insurance dispute attorney like Catalina. Having spent time working for insurance companies before coming onboard Farah and Farah, Catalina knows every trick in the playbook that these companies use to try and get out of paying for a claim.
Bottom line, if your insurance company is giving you the runaround, you want a seasoned insurance lawyer like Catalina Rodriguez running your legal dream team.
Our Orlando Team Works Closely Together for Better Results
I love how our Orlando office is structured. Eddie and Chuck Farah built our firm to be collaborative and to work together as a team rather than being siloed or off on our own. I can honestly say there are not many other firms out there that operate like we do here. We work closely together to strategize and bring about the best results for our clients. By leveraging our combined strengths and experience, we’re able to get better results and provide an optimal experience for our clients.
On top of this, Farah and Farah has immense resources to draw on. From investigators to see how damage occurred after a storm to construction experts to pinpoint what’s needed to fix issues, we have an almost endless amount of resources to help build a rock solid foundation for our clients’ cases.
I’ll Handle Your Homeowners Claim From Start to Finish
The best part about first party insurance law is that I operate both as a pre-litigation and litigation attorney simultaneously. This means I get the case from the very beginning and can take it all the way to court when that’s what’s necessary to get everything my clients deserve for their case. A typical day for me involves many different moving parts, from depositions and drafting legal documents, to talking to new clients and reviewing their insurance policies. I’ve learned to be successful in this field means being prepared.
I love that I’m the one who gets the case when it comes through our doors so I have control over the case from the very beginning. That way, I can make sure we’re doing everything we need to do to keep to a good schedule for getting our clients a favorable outcome that much faster.
I Make Communicating with Clients a Daily Priority
At Farah and Farah, we say we’re client-first because we are a people-centric firm that 100% prioritizes the client in everything we do. It’s one of the best parts of working here. My career has taken some interesting turns, including spending time as an educator and in customer service. I dabbled in personal injury law and even represented insurance companies for a time. All of this taught me that helping people is a passion of mine.
When I’m making winning moves for my client and finding new ways to approach the case, I’m really able to make coverage breakthroughs per your insurance policy. Getting to communicate a favorable settlement offer from the insurance company to my clients has to be one of the best aspects of being a Florida insurance dispute lawyer. I’m bilingual in English and Spanish which allows me to help even more people in our area, and across the state.
Turning Insurance Companies’ No Into Yes is What I Do Best
People from all walks of life come to me at Farah and Farah in Orlando to help them through some of their lowest points. They’ve had damage to their home or property and just when they thought the insurance company would come to the rescue, they are met with delay, underpayment, or an outright denial of their claim. Making the insurance company see the merit of your case and pointing out rightful coverage is how we turn a “no” from the insurance company into a “yes”.
Outside the office and when I need to relax and unwind, I love visiting all the fun spots we have around Orlando. I’m definitely a foodie, so Park Avenue in Winter Park is one of my favorite places for all the fun shops and restaurants there. I also enjoy going on hikes with my husband at places like Wekiva Springs, or relaxing at one of the many amazing Florida beaches. This downtime is so important for me as an attorney to recharge my batteries and be ready to roll when I’m back in the Farah and Farah Orlando office.
