I am one of the eight female attorneys in the Orlando area who is currently Board Certified by the Florida Bar in Criminal Trial Law. Under the Florida Bar, lawyers who hold a Board Certification in this law are identified as Specialist or Experts in the field of Criminal Trial Law.
With a Board Certification in Criminal Law, the Florida Bar recognizes the knowledge, specialty, and expertise that a Board Certified attorney has in the area of Criminal Trial Law.
I am a fighter who understands how attorneys on both sides of a criminal case think and work. Having practiced extensively in both criminal defense and prosecution, I understand how criminal cases are tried and the legal tactics both sides use.
After graduating from Stetson University in 2004, I attended Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida. While earning my license to practice law, I was an active member of the mock trial team, where I learned valuable skills in trial advocacy.
After graduating from Barry University School of Law and passing the Florida Bar, I worked for the Office of the State Attorney of Florida as assistant state attorney. While there, I prosecuted cases in the 9th Judicial Circuit of Florida, ranging from second-degree misdemeanors to first-degree felonies. I handled more than 30 jury trials and numerous adversarial hearings. I have also concluded thousands of prosecutions during my legal career.
I later joined an Orlando law firm as an associate managing its criminal defense division. I have worked solely to defend clients against criminal charges and probation violations. Fighting for my clients and their rights is immensely satisfying to me, and it is what I do best. Retain my services, and you will receive one-on-one attention from beginning to end of your legal journey.
In my spare time I enjoys playing with my dogs J.P. and Pepper. I also enjoy reading and am an avid runner.

I strongly endorse Jessica Travis. I have known Jessica Travis since she started with the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando. She and I were opponents on numerous cases when she was a prosecutor. Jessica is an extremely diligent, hard-working, conscientious, open-minded and intelligent. Jessica is very patient and highly professional in the way she handles her caseload and other attorneys. Jessica is always well-prepared for court, very respectful to members of the court and opposing counsel, always represents herself in a highly professional manner, and is a genuine and sincere person. She is an awesome lady and lawyer. She is demonstrating the same strong work ethic in private practice. I’ve recently referred a case to Jessica and the client indicates that he is extremely happy with the quality of Jessica’s work and her high degree of professionalism. She is an outstanding lawyer who understands the law and the court system. Again, I strongly recommend/endorse Jessica.
