About me

Thank you for visiting my page on Avvo. A little about me and my background I grew up in the  Miami  area and have been practicing law for more than 10 years, focusing on all aspects of bankruptcy, foreclosure defense, real estate law, business, and contract disputes. I have  been involved in numerous bankruptcy cases throughout Southern Florida, with cases in Miami- Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Lee counties.


I graduated from Florida International University with a B.A. in Political Science. I then received my  law degree from St. Thomas School of Law. I was honored to be the first recipient of the Terry Russell Fellowship and I also worked with domestic violence victims at the Legal Aid Society of Broward County.

Through my firm, JC Law, P.A.  I have represented countless community members in foreclosure defense, mortgage modifications, bankruptcy, family law, child support modification, real estate law, and contract disputes.  

Currently at JC Law, we are dedicated to representing clients in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies where we have been successful in liquidating debt, removing liens, reducing principle on mortgages and much more in order to give our clients that fresh start. 

I am admitted to practice law in Florida; the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida and; the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. I am also a member of the Dade County Bar Association, Miami Lakes Bar Association, and the Broward Bar Association.


We have two locations in Miami Lakes and Plantation. The first consultation is free and my staff and myself are fluent in Spanish.  We accept the following legal insurances Hyatt Legal Plans,ARAG, US Legal, and Workplace Benefits.
