    I endorse this lawyer. This lawyer was my law school roommate. We worked together on many matters in school including moot court competitions. I watched her practice in her clinical area of criminal law. We also interned at the Miami Public Defenders Office and tried cases. I have watched her in actual practice and she is an excellent trial lawyer. She is ethical, hard working and fights for her clients. I highly recommend this lawyer.
