Louis Berk was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where he lived with his parents and younger sister. In the summer of 1994, his parents made the life-changing decision to relocate to the United States. This move was challenging and forced Louis to learn a new language, make new friends, and start a new life in Florida.
From a young age, Louis learned the definition of hard work. He saw his parents struggle to provide a great life for him and his sister. Louis put that lesson into action and, at the age of 14, he got his first job as a bag boy in Winn-Dixie. That job quickly led to a more intensive position at a local catering company in Hollywood, Florida. Louis worked his way up at the catering company for the following 10 years. Of the many things he learned there, the two most valuable lessons were how to grow a successful business and the absolute necessity of top-notch customer service.
Louis attended Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration on Finance and Accounting. Following his graduation, Louis moved to Orlando, Florida, and attended Florida A&M College of Law where he received a Juris Doctorate degree in 2014. Louis began his legal career in the same firm where he had interned in law school--Bodiford Law Group. During law school, he learned the trade of product liability from one of the best attorneys in Florida, Mr. Ray Bodiford.
In December of 2014, Louis took an opportunity presented to him to work for Abogado William at McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox P.A. He oversaw his own caseload in the litigation department and put his fluent Spanish to daily use. During his time at McBride, Louis oversaw thousands of cases and in his three years there, he recovered millions of dollars for his clients. While he learned something new every week, Louis still viewed his clients' satisfaction as key to a successful business.
Louis is driven by his two great passions: educating the Hispanic community and giving back. Based on these core drivers, in 2018 Louis decided he could do more for his community by opening up his own firm, Louis Berk Law. Louis strives to give the best experience to each one of his clients and vows to fight for their rights. Louis specializes in automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and falls, trip and falls, wrongful death, and construction accidents.
