“Most of the things worth doing in the world have been declared impossible before they were done.”
– Justice Louis D. Brandeis (U.S. Supreme Court 1916 – 1939)
Albert “Al” Northrup is committed to obtaining justice for his clients. Prior to joining Bendinelli Law Firm, Al worked for two top national law firms for mass torts and products liability. He has always worked on the side of injured clients, having helped represent injured people against some of the largest corporations in the country including Monsanto, Johnson & Johnson, Purdue Pharmaceuticals, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Cardinal Health, McKesson, and Amerisource Bergen. In addition to his work in mass torts, Al worked as a social security disability advocate. He has helped hundreds of clients secure millions of dollars in past and future social security benefits after being denied by the Social Security Administration. This past experience has taught him how to thoroughly understand medical records so that he can use them to maximize his clients’ case value and fight the insurance companies. Whether you’ve been injured by a defective product, hurt in an auto accident, or injured in a slip and fall, Al will be willing to go to bat for you against the insurance companies.
In law school, Al was recognized for his written and oral advocacy skills as a member of Barry University’s Moot Court and Trial Team programs. He competed against and defeated some of the highest ranked programs in the country in national competitions for mock trial. He won the Best Brief Award for writing the best brief in the Puerto Rican Bar Association’s annual Moot Court competition and his team finished second place in oral arguments. Al also received the “Book Award” for having the highest grade in his class for his courses in Trial Advocacy and Motions and Depositions. Al served in leadership positions for several organizations in law school including serving on the Executive Board for the American Association for Justice (AAJ). In business school, Al and his team were finalists for UCF’s annual business plan formulation competition where they were recognized by business leaders in Central Florida. In addition, Al volunteered countless hours with Habitat for Humanity and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
Al gets his competitive nature from having played organized sports. As a child, he affectionately earned the nickname “Big Al” for being the smallest person on his baseball and football teams, but for having the most drive and biggest heart. Al played competitive soccer his entire life, coached youth soccer for 9 years, and still tries to play when he can. When not fighting on behalf of his clients, Al enjoys spending time with family, exploring the outdoors, weight training, and cheering for his favorite sports teams. He is a proud member of Bills Mafia and die-hard fan of the Buffalo Bills, NY Yankees, US Soccer, Chelsea Football Club, Orlando City Soccer, and the UCF Knights (Charge On!).
