About Me

I earned my Juris Doctorate at the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida. After passing the Florida Bar I was lucky enough to begin my legal career at the Miami-Dade Public Defender's office. There were over 2000 applications for 20 new attorney positions. During my five years as an assistant public defender I was the attorney of record in over 2500 cases, which included both felony and misdemeanor cases. 


 


Before, I was a public defender, my training began as a certified legal intern at the Miami-Dade Public Defender's office, which is limited to students who have completed at least two years of law school and meet certification requirements set by the Supreme Court of Florida.  Legal Interns who are "certified" by the state Supreme Court are able to represent public defender clients in and out of court. After attending the Public Defender Orientation Training Series, and while under the supervision of Miami-Dade Public Defender's office, I received assignments in the misdemeanor division. Each day I worked closely with an experienced assistant public defender who acted as my mentor. They taught my how to conduct client interviews, take depositions, engage in motion practice, handle daily court calendars and try cases.


 


I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for my undergraduate studies and earned a double major. I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society, as well and the Golden Key National Honor Society
