With the intent of bolstering its commercial litigation and insurance defense practice, Almazan Law announced a seasoned trio of new partners: Gregory Glasser (pictured above), Mario Gomez and Brett Kaplan. The attorneys bring a combined 55 years of experience in complex legal matters, from their practice at Klein, Glasser, Park and Lowe, P.L. (f/k/a Stephens, Lynn, Klein). No doubt the new players will reinvigorate the firm, which counts as current clients Fortune 500 conglomerates, large insurance carriers, PEOs, individuals and small businesses. Almazan’s specialty practice areas include insurance defense, commercial litigation, workers compensation, and real estate.

“Growing this law firm during this unprecedented pandemic to better serve our client’s needs now and be well prepared on the other side of it is our goal,” says Alex Almazan, the firm’s founder and managing partner. “Our top priority is always servicing our loyal clientele with best in class counsel, and that starts with attracting great talent. Greg, Mario and Brett are exceptional attorneys, each bringing a unique skill set to the table, and I greatly look forward to collaborating with them for the benefit of our firm’s clients for years to come.”

A top litigator, Greg Glasser focuses on commercial litigation, catastrophic injury defense, insurance disputes and defense of professional malpractice claims. He will now manage the firm’s litigation department. Mario Gomez’s expertise is in general liability, particularly with respect to claims involving

catastrophic personal injuries stemming from automobile and trucking losses. Gomez has tried over two dozen jury trials, and has previously served as claims counsel for a large insurance carrier. Meanwhile, Brett Kaplan represents clients in general liability defense, insurance issues and general civil litigation. He has defended hundreds of matters in bodily injury and property damage realms, primarily representing corporate entities, individuals, and insurance companies.
