Abraham S. Ovadia | OVADIA LAW GROUP, PA
Abe Ovadia grew up in Boca Raton and attended FAU as an undergraduate. He later earned his law degree from FIU College of Law in Miami. After law school, he opened his first office out of his mother’s apartment, filing lawsuits against insurance companies that wrongfully chose not to pay doctors’ bills. He filed more than 1,000 lawsuits that first year. Now in his 11th year of practice, specializing in personal injury cases, Abe has a staff of seven attorneys and divides his time each week between his three office locations in Boca Raton, Doral and Fort Myers.
Q: What is your involvement with educating doctors about personal injury laws?
A: I have been approved by the State of Florida to provide continuing education units (CEUs) to medical providers about state and federal laws related to personal injury law. My lectures educate medical providers on legal pitfalls to avoid when treating a patient with an injury case and how to properly document their injuries.
Q: Why is it important for you to give back?
A: It’s my duty—and pleasure. In December I hosted my ninth-annual toy giveaway, where I personally bought and distributed hundreds of toys to needy kids and donated food to hungry families during the holidays. I was thrilled to return
to my alma mater, FIU College of Law, a few years ago with a $400,000 gift to enhance the university’s career planning and placement office, which now bears my name.
Q: How do you stay competitive in your field?
A: My firm is enrolled in core values training to ensure the ultimate in client customer service. We insist on being available by phone any time to answer clients’ questions, and we make it a point to reach out to clients regularly.
