Pedro Bahamonde joined Stites Legal in 2018. Since then, he has represented the firm’s clients in the busy Brooklyn North court. A fluent Spanish speaker, Pedro is clear and candid in his case evaluations and a dedicated fighter in the courtroom. He treats all of his clients with the respect and compassion they deserve.
A native New Yorker, Pedro has dedicated his life to defending those who most need legal assistance. Today, he defends drivers from all backgrounds so that they may continue to support their families. Before joining the firm, he worked for the Legal Aid Society, defending indigent clients in a bilingual capacity in criminal and administrative proceedings.
For years, Pedro has been a leader in the Hispanic community. In St. Paul, Minnesota, he worked for the State Council on Chicano/Latino Affairs, serving as the senior liaison to that area’s Latino population and focusing on migrant farm workers. After returning home to New York, he taught Spanish to high school students at Mount Saint Michael Academy in the Bronx.
Today, Pedro brings these years of commitment to helping the underserved. At Stites Legal, he takes pride in defending the driving privileges of hardworking New Yorkers.
