As a settlement coordinator at Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez, Sonia makes
sure the disbursement of settlement funds in each case is done properly
and promptly. She achieves this by gathering all medical bills and liens
clients might have and negotiating those balances in order to optimize
the clients’ settlement. Additionally, Sonia negotiates with doctors,
insurance companies, and lien holders on behalf of our clients, making
sure they keep the most part of their settlement funds.
A member of our legal team for four years, Sonia enjoys being able to work
on the closing of files and having the opportunity to be with clients
at the closing of their cases. This provides her with insight about their
life experiences, their situation, their views for the future given the
conclusion of the case, and their gratitude toward the firm – all
of which can be very rewarding.
When it comes to settlement process, Sonia’s main objective is to
benefit the client and protect their interests. She puts clients first
in every decision she makes and strives to bring them closure while optimizing
the settlement funds in their favor. On a daily basis, Sonia plays a role
in helping reduce thousands of dollars from our clients’ medical
liens. When not working, she enjoys baking, watching novellas, and spending
time with families.
