Raised in an enthusiastically Cuban-Mexican household, Ms. Soberon-Llort graduated from Duke University and obtained her J.D. from Emory University School of Law. Ms. Soberon-Llort honed her skills as a litigator and researcher working as a summer associate in the Orlando office for the prestigious law firm of Broad & Cassel in their Bankruptcy and Commercial Litigation practice groups. Her passion, however, is criminal defense. After passing the Florida Bar Exam, Ms. Soberon-Llort worked at the Public Defender’s Office of the Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orange County for over 3 years.
While there, she defended her clients with zeal and compassion, and garnered a reputation for being an effective and caring advocate for her clients, often visiting her incarcerated clients during the evenings and weekends. Ms. Soberon-Llort obtained invaluable experience while serving as an Assistant Public Defender, representing clients in over 40 trials in everything from a simple misdemeanor petit theft to a serious aggravated felony. Ms. Soberon-Llort left the Public Defender’s Office and opened her own law practice with her former trial partner, Ashley Tennison.
