The biggest thing that I like is I really get to help people. I can see from the

moment they walk in the door how distressed they are, to the moment where

we help them and just the change in their life, really it’s just satisfying. For my

undergrad, I went to the University of Miami and then I ended up graduating

from Florida State University but I’m true to University of Miami at heart. My

degree was in Communications, minor in English Literature. I went on to teach

8th grade language arts for two years and during that time, I decided to apply to

law school. In the meantime I also got a degree in Secondary English Education, I

got a Master’s. After that I went to law school at Stetson University. I started

working in a insurance difference firm. That was what ultimately brought me

back here.

 

I got my first clerking job in law school at a firm and then when I graduated, they

offered me a position and so I came back to Orlando. It was my first exposure to

how the big companies. I realized at that point that a lot of them make a lot of

business decisions, not necessarily they’re out to get the little person. It was eye-

opening I guess for me to see that side of the world. In 2007 I was working at a

national labor and employment firm and Carlos was my boss and so one of us

had to leave the firm. I actually have a art background and when I left that firm, I

actually started an art studio for kids first and did that for a little bit and then

decided to have my practice as a 50/50 and that’s how it started.

 

We have four lawyers and we try to build on everybody’s skill sets. I do all of the

intakes of any new clients that come in and then I cycle it next to Chris, who’s

another lawyer and she does a lot of the back of the house operations, so she

does a lot of our writing for us and prepares legal documents. We both support

LaKesia and Carlos, who are our litigators. They’re the ones that go to the court

and do the arguing, any appearances that need to be done. That’s how we work

as a team.
