About Me

"I know the law, so you don't have to.  Call me if you need answers.  I have over 15 years of legal experience helping people just like you.  The law . . . it's what I do."


 


I attended Florida State University College of Law in 1995 where I was a member of Law Review and served as a judicial extern for the former Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court. I graduated with Honors and obtained my Juris Doctor in 1998.


 


 I began my legal career as an associate at a statewide law firm; and, later, at an international law firm doing corporate and transactional work. I subsequently served as in-house Staff Attorney for a large private company and as in-house Corporate Counsel for its Fortune 500, publicly-traded parent company. I obtained valuable litigation experience at the State Attorney's Office where I worked as a trial attorney in the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida, which includes Orange County and Osceola County. I formed DeVoe Law Firm to provide quality family law, divorce, child supportcustody, timesharing, and criminal defense legal services in Orlando, Kissimmee, Altamonte Springs, and the surrounding areas.


 


I am a member of the Orange County Bar Association, including the Family Law Practice Division and the Criminal Law Practice Division.  I participate as a volunteer at Orange County Teen Court and have served as a guest lecturer at a local university in Orlando, Florida.
