Luisa T. Rueda
Luisa recently joined our law firm and brings with her a passion for helping those in need, which was her motivation to become an excellent trial lawyer, specializing in medical malpractice. As a psychology major at SUNY Old Westbury, Luisa practiced a variety of interpersonal communication skills which make her an excellent asset to our team. She is empathic and understanding of our clients, who are seriously injured and/or grieving the loss of a loved one. She also clarifies the long and complicated process of personal injury litigation with ease.
Prior to and throughout law school, Luisa was working as a Law Clerk at a personal injury law firm, primarily working on medical malpractice cases. This is where she learned and focused on all aspects of litigation, including discovery, motion practice, trial preparation, and legal research. With this experience and knowledge, Luisa earned the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in her Legal & Ethics Issues in Medical Malpractice at Touro Law Center. She has brought these skills with her to Silberstein, Awad & Miklos.
Luisa is a Long Island native, and is committed to serving her community. She spent several years as a volunteer at the Long Island Crisis Center where she was a Crisis Intervention Counselor, answering the hotline calls from community members who were struggling. During law school, she interned at the Legal Aid Society’s Children Law Bureau in Suffolk County representing children from the community. Now as an attorney, she is serving her community once again by practicing primarily on Long Island, and the Five Boroughs of New York City.
