Meet Our Attorneys
The pledge of allegiance concludes by stating “justice for all.” This is supported by our constitutional rights of access to courts and due process. Meaning that no matter how big or small the dispute, or whether you are rich or poor, a corporation or employee, you are entitled to your day in court. For these reasons, I went to law school to become a trial lawyer and assist others with their pursuit of justice.
Understandably, when I was a student at Lake Howell High School in Seminole County, Florida, I didn’t know specifically that access to courts and due process were the reasons I wanted to go to law school. At that time, I simply wanted to help others with their legal needs. As such, I began my quest here in Orlando, Florida, while attending Valencia College. There I learned about justice through studying American history and the development of our judicial system. I practiced serving others by volunteering at Carillon Elementary in Oviedo, Florida, and by working as the Vice President of Student Government for Valencia College’s East Campus. I continued my journey at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where I studied accounting and served as the Chief Justice of Student Traffic Court and in other various student government roles. Based on my leadership, service oriented activities and academic successes, I was accepted to the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law. This allowed me to continue serving others through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program as an IRS-certified volunteer providing free tax return preparation services to low income individuals and becoming a Certified Legal Intern through The Florida Bar advocating on behalf of victims of domestic violence at the State Attorney’s Office of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida.
After graduating law school and passing Florida’s bar exam, I officially became a lawyer. I accepted an offer from the State Attorney’s Office in Tampa, Florida, as an assistant prosecutor and continued to fight on behalf of Florida’s victims of crimes. After conducting multiple criminal jury trials to verdict, I left to begin practicing personal injury law at a firm in Tampa, Florida. This was when I began my career in the courtroom as a civil trial lawyer representing those injured by the negligence of others. However, before dedicating my career to the injured, I spent approximately eight years representing a large automobile insurance carrier and its fraud detection unit and other large corporations. Through those years I learned how insurance carriers and other large corporations defend against injury cases.
More recently, Dan Newlin invited me to join him by adding my years of civil trial experience to his already accomplished legal team and to continue their work fighting for the rights of those injured in accidents. Thanks to the courage of our clients and Dan Newlin Injury Attorneys’ legal acumen and resources, I have the honor of advocating for our clients’ right to justice on a daily basis. And I have also come to realize that I went to law school to help people in their time of need and, more importantly, to be their voice and pursue their justice in the courtroom. As such, if you have been injured in an accident and need someone to fight for your rights and the justice you deserve, please contact me directly at 407-203-6615 or [email protected] so that we may discuss how to best handle your case.
