At Gorayeb & Associates, we are more than just a Spanish-speaking law firm. We are an integral part of the Latino community in New York City.

For over 35 years of legal excellence, we have fought for the rights of workers who have been injured in construction accidents, winning over $1 billion in compensation for them.

Our job is to help victims of work-related injuries get the maximum possible compensation so that they can recover with their families without having to worry about money.

Gorayeb Community Center

But our work also has a deep social dimension. We have the Gorayeb Community Center, a non-profit organization founded in 2015 and located in Junction Boulevard, Queens.

Centro Comunitario Gorayeb

Among its main goals are:

  • Collaborating in the integration of the Latino community in New York City.
  • Disseminating technical and legal resources that are useful for Latino workers.
  • Offering training courses to prevent construction accidents.


Our integration with the Latino community includes strategic alliances with various associations that are fundamental in the history of Hispanic culture in New York City. For example, the Frente Hispano Local 79 and the Ecuadorian Civic Committee of NY.

Through these unions, we have been able to jointly carry out strategic and comprehensive social work that has had a positive impact on the Latino communities established in the different localities of New York.

They also call for initiatives to help victims of natural disasters, such as earthquakes or the recent pandemic.
