Carlos del Amo is the founder and president of The Law Office of Carlos del Amo, P.A. Born in Havana, Cuba on September 26, 1953, he is the second oldest child of Carlos Blas and Olga Perez. 


 


On April 17, 1961, Cuban freedom fighters invaded Cuba in an attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro. The assault ended in disaster. Olga was working for the American Embassy at the time and was given immediate residency for the entire family. Believing that the ill-fated invasion would shortly be followed by another successful one, Carlos Blas, on April 29, 1961, sent his seven year old son and eleven year old daughter with their mother to the United States for a short stay. He has been in the United States for over 55 years and is a United States citizen.


 


After attending Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland, Carlos del Amo studied at Florida International University and graduated in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. He began a master's program in psychology at Barry College but had to leave the program before completion to support his family. In 1985, at the age of thirty-two, he returned to school, this time to earn his J.D. from the University of Miami, graduating in January, 1988. He became an attorney in September of that same year.


 


From the age of eighteen to his entry into law school, He was a businessman with such diversified pursuits as a shoe and handbag manufacturer, designer and importer; a nationwide wholesaler of handbags; a cold storage manager; a meat broker; a grocery store owner; a real estate broker; and a mortgage broker.


 


His law career began with the law firm of High Stack Lazenby and Palahach. For the next seven years, he was a litigator for the firm, first as an associate and later as a partner. In 1996, He opened his own offices in Coral Gables. I am "AV" rated by Martindale-Hubbell  and is a Member of the Million Dollar Advocate Forum.
