BILINGUAL AND AGGRESSIVE ATTORNEY AT YOUR SERVICE.

Mr. Carmona is a bilingual attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and Puerto Rico. His practice is focused on International Law, Immigration, Civil Litigaton, and Bankruptcy. He has extensive experience in contested Family Law matters. With respect to his international practice, Mr. Carmona devotes a substantial portion of his time assisting both businesses and individuals establishing or relocating to the United States.

Born in the Island of Puerto Rico, Mr. Carmona relocated to the mainland United States at a young age. He attended Oviedo High School and completed two bachelor degrees at the University of Central Florida (UCF): Legal Studies and Spanish. He received a full scholarship from the same institution to complete a Master of Arts degree in Spanish and served Fulbright Professor Dr. Humberto Lopez Cruz in Spain as his research assistant. He later went on to receive his Juris Doctor, cum laude, at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico where he was part of the Law Review and completed internships and comparative international law classes in London and Madrid.

Mr. Carmona is fluent in Spanish and has the cultural expertise to understand on a personal level many people that share Latin and Hispanic backgrounds. He conducts in person presentations in Latin America and the Caribbean on the subject of relocating to the United States.

During law school, Mr. Carmona served as a law clerk for Honorable Judge Daniel Domínguez of the Federal Court for the District of Puerto Rico. He was a member of the Law Review and published the law article titled: Rights of Treasure Hunters under Puerto Rico Law: Application of Article 285 of the Civil Code through the Jones Act, the Puerto Rican Underwater Archaeological Protection Act and the Abandoned Shipwreck Act of 1987. After graduating from law school, he went to work for a Bankruptcy Trustee for the Middle District Bankruptcy Court of Florida. He then worked as an associate attorney for two local boutique law firms being responsible for the development and or expansion of their bankruptcy, family and civil law practices. Mr. Carmona later successfully managed his own firm for over 8 years concentrating his practice on Family, Bankruptcy, Civil Litigation and Immigration.

Outstanding Bilingual Attorney Experience - Thanks Omar!
Omar provided outstanding service and kept me informed during the entire process. He understood my situation and was able to provide sound, legal advice. Omar exceeded my expectations and always went above and beyond to explain all the possible scenarios. His online customer account was a great tool to manage all the documents during the process and created another avenue of communication between him and his team. I would give Omar my highest recommendation.

Extremely knowledgeable and Trustworthy
My wife and I hired Attorney Carmona to handle our foreclosure defense. He was very informative and explained all of our options in an easy to understand way. Before consulting with him, we were convinced that bankruptcy would be our only option. However after sitting down with Mr. Carmona, he helped us to better understand our situation and "with a little patience" (as Mr. Carmona would always tell us) we were able to settle our matters and avoid bankruptcy. We are very happy with the service he and his staff provided us and will use them again should the need arise.

Carmona Feedback
Professional, dedicated and committed are the words I have to say about Carmona. He has been my lawyer for the past 10 years and I have no regrets. One of the best lawyers, has defended me in multiple cases and always won. Any issues that occur with the law, I know I can count on him. When I had court with the father of my kids, and I hadn't met Carmona I was hopeless and lost. Now, thanks to him I know someone has my back and does an amazing job doing it. 100% recommend his service. Thank you Carmona Law!

Excellen
Mr. Carmona handling of a recent divorce case was absolutely marvelous. His performance in court was exemplary. Restrained, even tempered but precise, to the point and mark. He researched and weighed evidence as well as filtering out fact from fiction. His soft spoken demeanor hides a cool, sharp mind. Despite this being an emotional, nerve wracking time, Mr. Carmona's reassuring words and attitude were comforting and reassuring. Additionally, Mr. Carmona is bi-lingual. Recommend him without any reservation.

Amazing Attorney!
I would like to thank Omar Carmona for ALL he has done. I chose him due to his passion, knowledge, very informative, and the team he has to assist him. Once I hired him for his expertise he advised me his game plan and in 8 months we achieved it ! My case was a total disaster and with time, patience, and communication with the attorney and my legal assistant Irene everything went flowing as it should. I understand no family case is a simple 123 but they made it happen to where I went from every other weekend with my children to 50/50 ! That has been such a blessing and I thank Attorney Carmona for helping me make that happen and drilling into my head to be patience and trust the process. Thank you for being such a professional and great attorney! I also want to thank Irene for all she has done with communication with me and answering all my questions in a timely manner. She also was able to understand my case and the decisions I wanted to make as a mother and I appreciate the patience she had with me. Patricia was amazing with me as well from the start! She is very sweet and kind and always trying to help even if she does not know the answer.
