About Me

Ms. Synnamon graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2003. She then decided to do something different with her career, and attended Florida A&M University College of Law in 2006.


 


During law school, she was President of the American Association for Justice (formerly American Trial Lawyers Association), as well as, the Mock Trial Chairperson on the Advocacy Board. Giving back to the community was and continues to be a huge priority to her, which is why, she organized the Annual AAJ Homeruns for Lukemia Charity Softball Tournament, which benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Center of Central Florida. She also participated in Moot Court as well as Mock trial in several national competitions before graduating with her Juris Doctorate in 2009.


 


Her passion for advocating in the courtroom fueled her career at the State Attorney's Office in the Ninth Judicial Circuit (Orlando, FL). Throughout her years as a prosecutor, she was assigned to several specialized units including Misdemeanor, Juvenile, Felony Domestic Violence, and the Sex Crimes/Child Abuse Unit. She handled serious and difficult cases, and became proficient in complex scientific evidence (DNA, Finger print analysis, computer forensics, blood alcohol levels). In addition, she amounted extensive courtroom experience, arguing hundreds of motions, and over 60 jury trials including Capital Sex Crimes.


 


Ms. Synnamon, left the State Attorney's Office in June of 2013 and pursued criminal defense work. She has seen how hard it is for those that have been accused of a crime as well as their families to deal with the intimidation of the criminal justice system.


 


Ms. Synnamon is licensed to practice law in the state courts of Florida and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
