Establishing a startup business is not as easy as most people think it is. It is highly recommended that business owners are protected from the time they launch their startups to avoid future complications. The same is true even for big companies who are eyeing to do collaboration, mergers, and buyouts – the legal aspect of these transactions need to be secured first and foremost.

Benemerito Attorneys at Law was founded by John Benemerito and Alejandra Gonzalez. John is currently the firm’s managing partner. John finished his bachelor’s degree at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where he majored in criminal justice. He then proceeded to attend New York Law School, where he focused his studies on corporate and securities law. Alejandra also attended New York Law School after completing a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Puerto Rico. She focuses mostly on real estate and corporate law.
Just like John, Alejandra also dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur. Prior to law school, she worked as a journalist as a radio station in Puerto Rico. Her dream was to start a publication for aspiring young entrepreneurs. While writing articles for her college newspaper, she constantly interacted with small business owners in her college community in Rio Piedras, which eventually sparked her interest in business law.
Before his law practice, John was known to be a natural when it comes to entrepreneurship. Even as a young boy, he was always involved in several of his family’s businesses. At the age of 15, he started a partnership with his father, which he sustained through high school, college, and law school. At present, he is a proud co-founder of five businesses.
After finishing his law degree, John was determined to help people like himself – young businessmen who need all the assistance they can get to start their businesses right. He is particularly concerned about protecting the interests of the business owners to ensure that their brands are protected by the law. As an experienced entrepreneur himself, John is also able to extend helpful business advice to his clients who go through challenges along the way.
“We have a more relaxed approach to the legal industry. I am a serial entrepreneur so I add a certain value to my clients that other lawyers cannot. I also have an amazing network and team that makes my firm the one stop shop for anyone with an idea,” John explains.
The firm’s commitment to excellence and professionalism is something that John and Alejandra intend to maintain and continue to improve over the years. Having helped thousands of startups through their firm, they know that they can help raise the next generation of entrepreneurs in the country.
