About me

Dana was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. She graduated from Florida State University, cum laude, with a Bachelor of Science in Social Work. She later earned her Master of Social Work degree from Florida State in 2003. Dana earned her law degree from Florida State, magna cum laude, in December 2007 and is a member of the Order of the Coif. She is a member of the Florida Bar and a shareholder of the firm.

Dana has a varied legal background with experience in civil litigation, family law, criminal law, and law office administration. For over 14 years, she worked as a litigation paralegal, specializing in the area of medical malpractice. After obtaining her M.S.W., Dana worked as a mental health counselor. She later became a Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator and settled several marital and custody disputes. Her background in the mental health field has strengthened her desire to help at-risk persons and those who are most in need of an effective legal advocate. She understands what it means to be the “little person” going up against big business and insurance companies.
