Florida law requires that all drivers carry a minimum of $10,000 in Personal Protection Injury Protection (PIP) insurance that provides coverage for up to 80% of medical expenses and 60% of lost wages in an accident, regardless of who caused the accident. This is sometimes referred to as “no fault” coverage. The goal behind the PIP law is to reduce litigation in cases where medical benefits and lost wages are relatively minor. However, in many cases even minor accidents can cause medical bills and lost wages to very quickly exceed the $10,000 in PIP benefits that are available.
One of the most important things a good auto accident attorney does is help to show a client what the client “doesn’t know he or she doesn’t know.” Don’t go through the process blind and with your hands tied behind your back. Level the playing field by engaging the services of a high quality auto accident attorney.

Very Capable Trial Attorney
Renier or "Ray" as he calls himself represented me for a DUI in Palm Beach County and at first I was not thrilled about the idea of going to trial. However, Ray made me feel comfortable and explained the pros and cons of having a trial. We had the trial and he got me a NOT GUILTY. I was very happy but glad that the process was finally over. He could have kept me a bit more informed regarding the discussions he had with the state attorney about my case. Overall though, I would definitely recommend him to someone.
Renier got me a great resolution to my case.
I retained Mr. Ledezma for my DUI case about a month ago. It was my second DUI arrest in a few years. Renier did a great job and explained the process to me and did not make promises he could not keep. There was a chance I would not get another reckless so my expectations were kept at a reasonable level. However, he found some weaknesses in the case and ended up getting me a reckless instead of a DUI conviction. I was impressed with Mr. Ledezma because he was very straightforward and showed that he cared. I would definitely recommend him because he is sincere in his efforts and cares about his clients.
Very aggressive and cared about getting the nest result.
I fell down at Walmart about a year ago and hurt my back. I received medical treatment and brought it to Walmart's attention. However, when Walmart received my letter and medical records they said they were not responsible. My friend retained Renier for his personal injury matter and recommended him. When I spoke to Renier he was very helpful and explained the process to me. He didn't make any promises besides he would work very hard to get me a good settlement. He filed a demand letter and negotiated with Walmart for over 6 months when he eventually got me a great settlement. He was great because I was able to call him for questions even on the weekends. I could tell he cared about making me happy and getting me a great result. I highly recommend him to anyone else in my position.
Great Attorney and cares about his clients.
Mr. Ledezma assisted me with my battery case and fought hard for me. He did not recommend accepting the first offer and it turned out he was correct. I ended up getting a much better deal which minimized the costs associated with my plea agreement and long-term consequences. More importantly, Mr. Ledezma by his actions really showed he cared and made me feel like I was more then just another client. A great experience and I would highly recommend him for anyone.
An excellent, reliable, knowledgeable, considerate, hard working attorney. I would never, ever use another attorney.
It is rare in this day and age to find an attorney that is dignified, caring and kept me up to date the entire time. He exceeded my expectations, which are quite high. Ray did not miss a beat in any part of the client/attorney relationship. If you need an attorney, this is the attorney you should choose. You will not be disappointed.
