Joaquín Lago is a Bankruptcy Attorney with over six years of experience in the field, having represented both individual debtors and mortgage creditors before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Puerto Rico. While representing debtors, Joaquín carried out adversary proceedings to strip off improperly secured or unsecured liens over Debtors’ residential properties or motor vehicles, as well as to redeem debtors’ financial fresh start in case any creditor violated the Bankruptcy Court’s automatic stay or discharge orders. Joaquín is admitted to the Puerto Rico Bar, as well as the Federal Bar.

Joaquín also has experience in mortgage foreclosure cases before the Puerto Rico Trial Court, as well as the U.S. Federal District Court, for the District of Puerto Rico.

Joaquín also carries out Title Insurance Claims in cases where a mortgage lien has not been properly established. Joaquín was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where he currently lives and works. On his time off, Joaquín enjoys reading and riding bikes with his daughter.

Client Reviews
I highly recommended Law office of Zorrilla and Silvestrini, they are always there for you. They help me in the most difficult moment. Excellent service and very professional team. I will always be grateful for everything they did for my and my family. Rosalynn R.
After having several bad experiences with different attorneys, from never having a call returned, to having the opposite outcome of what was promised, I was fortunate to find them. I had a stress free experience, having a positive outcome after being told by at least 3 attorneys (and paying for it) that I didn't have a case. I STRONGLY recommend them! Juanita R.
It is the first time in my life having a meeting with a lawyer to seek advice. Angel Silvestrini, Esq. made me feel at ease, was on time, very clear in his explanations and put my mind at ease. He pointed me in a direction and helped me find the compass. May God continue to bless him. Nadine S.
