We are Proud to Represent All Cultures
Navigating the legal landscape is difficult for anyone, but it is especially hard for immigrants who may struggle with language barriers or cultural divides. Regardless of the challenges, we at Karp Steiger make it our mission to talk to our clients, regardless of their background, so that we can properly communicate their losses to the insurance companies and juries.
In Greater Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, the Russian, Hispanic and Latino communities are larger than you might expect. Case Western Reserve University has reported the substantial growth of the Russian community in Greater Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. Indeed, with the end of the Cold War, the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and the rise of the internet, the contacts between Greater Cleveland and Russia have increased. On May 3, 2019, the Russian flag flew over Cleveland City Hall as the City of Cleveland officially recognized Russian Community Day.
Large numbers of immigrants from Russian and the former Soviet Union have settled on the east side of Cleveland. The Russian community includes Great Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, Armenians, Georgians, Uzbeks and others. Over the years, we at Karp Steiger have seen first-hand the need for the Russian community to be properly represented in injury claims.
According to the 2018 census, the Hispanic and Latino community forms 11.2% of the City of Cleveland’s population, with the vast majority Puerto Rican descent. Approximately two-thirds of Greater Cleveland’s Puerto Ricans live on the near west side of Cleveland from West 5th to West 65th Streets, between Detroit and Clark Avenues. Karp Steiger has been proudly representing the Latino and Hispanic communities for years.
Regardless of the cultural divide or any language barriers, we are here to help. Thus, if you or a loved one were injured, please do not hesitate to call. We are available 27-7 and we offer free consultations.
