Ethel Velasquez

My legal journey began at Florida State University where I triple majored in Political Science, International Affairs, and Marketing, with a concentration in Professional Sales. I then excelled during my time at St. Thomas University School of Law, booking the highest grade in Interviewing, Counseling, and Negotiations, making the Dean’s List, and becoming a member of the Stephen R. Booher American Inn of Court.

I bring experience in both civil and criminal proceedings; having begun my career in immigration and criminal law. Now, my focus is on personal injury protection, workers’ compensation, and personal injury. I take pride in knowing my work allows medical providers to focus on helping injured patient’s recover; while I focus on maximizing justice, by negotiating with insurance companies.

Beyond legal expertise, as a child of immigrants, my parents instilled in me a strong work ethic at an early age. A mentality of gratefulness, kindness, and perseverance. I believe that civility should be at the forefront of the legal profession, and I strive to have positive working relationships with clients and fellow attorneys.
