About Juan

I am the child of Cuban immigrants and was born and raised in Miami, Florida.

I attended Florida International University in Miami, graduating with Honors in 1999. Later, I attended the University of Florida College of Law, receiving my law degree in 2002.

I began my legal career at the Office of the Public Defender for the 5th Judicial Circuit in Ocala, Florida. In my capacity there, I had the opportunity to handle various misdemeanor and traffic offenses, including DUI and property crimes. I also had the opportunity to litigate a number of matters in County Court.

As a resident of Gainesville, Florida, I took the opportunity to move my legal work from Ocala to Gainesville when I moved to the Office of the Public Defender for the 8th Judicial Circuit.

It was there that I was given more serious tasks that involved defending the accused of felonies such as sexual batteries, aggravated batteries, grand theft charges, all manner of drug possession and trafficking cases, as well as cases dealing with serious felonies that had mental health components. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to litigate a number of serious felony charges in Circuit Court.

I transitioned into private practice in 2013 and have expanded my practice considerably, adding Family, Immigration and Personal Injury law services to those provided by my office.

I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and I am especially happy to assist those clients in the community who communicate most comfortably in either of these languages.
