While our true passion is helping injury victims get the fair compensation
they deserve, it’s always nice to have the opportunity to share
our legal experience. One of our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers,
Jorge Maxion, recently joined Julian Zaldivar of ESPN West Palm and ESPN
Deportes broadcast radio on his podcast which is centered around international
sports and law.

The podcast, which runs about 20 minutes, is geared toward Spanish speakers
in West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities. Zaldivar, who is of
Mexican descent, is recognized in the Hispanic community for his extensive
and passionate knowledge of soccer and other sports. Attorney Maxion grew
up playing baseball and football in his Colombian neighborhood, and was
thrilled to have the opportunity to team up with Zaldivar on this podcast.
The two discussed a number of topics, chiefly the recent allegations Lionel
Messi faces for tax evasion. Messi is one of the most recognizable soccer
stars in the world, having been named the FIFA World Player of the Year
four separate times. He made reparation payments in 2013 which totaled
€5 million, at which point a prosecutor recommended that all charges
be dropped. However, a judge in Spain denied this recommendation, and
it seems that Messi will have to stand trial.
Additionally, Zaldivar and Maxion spoke about World Series, discussing
the numerous Hispanic baseball players currently playing in the major
leagues. They also discussed the unique challenges and sacrifices made
by Latin American players in their pursuit of a professional sports career
