In recognition of the rich Puerto Rican heritage abundant in the community they serve through their Bronx, NY office, Jacoby & Meyers, one of the nation’s oldest and largest personal injury law firms, sponsored the annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade cultural festival. The “Condado de la Salsa” is the official kick-off for the parade.

Thousands turned out for the 152nd Street Cultural Festival which ran from Jackson through Union Avenue in Bronx. It is a full-day, family-oriented street fair that features traditional Puerto Rican food, arts and crafts, live music, and promotional sponsors. 

The Jacoby & Meyers team, lead by attorneys Gustavo Alzugaray and Edward Steves, handed out firm baseball caps and information about the firm’s services, which include personal injury, matrimonial and family law, bankruptcy and immigration, among others. The firm also raffled off a 43 inch Samsung television that everyone who visited the Jacoby & Meyers tent had a chance to win. 

“This is our second year sponsoring the Puerto Rican Day Parade cultural festival. We’re really happy to be part of an event that’s filled with so much history and tradition,” said Gustavo Alzugaray, who manages the Jacoby & Meyers Bronx office. “Being involved in the festival is a great way to give back to the community we serve and a fun way to get to know our neighbors and neighborhood.”
