Carrasquillo Law Group (CLG) is pleased to announce the firm’s Managing Shareholder Rogelio ‘Roy’ Carrasquillo has been spotlighted as ‘One To Watch’ by New York Real Estate Journal. As part of the spotlight, NYREJ interviewed Roy about recent accomplishments at CLG, his influences, community work and more.
“We are very proud of one of our latest projects, La Merced Elderly,” said Roy, when asked about recent accomplishments. “This is an elderly affordable housing project incorporating different sources of capital including LIHTC, EB-5 Financing, local tax credits and bond financing. What I really like about this project is that it will be serving Puerto Rico’s elderly community in the metropolitan area, where affordable housing is becoming scarce.”
When asked who mentored him and influenced his career, Roy cited his father. A veteran of both World War II and the Korean War, Roy’s late father was also a dedicated attorney and played a key role in Roy deciding to become an attorney himself.
“In all the people I’ve worked with during my career, my father has always been the most inspirational as he was a real student of the law,” Roy said. “He had a passion for the law and making a difference in people’s lives. He always reminded me that no matter what we do in life we should make it our passion and build our own path. He used to say that the only way to go is forward and I try to live by those words.”
