Ashley Benitez, Esq.
Family Law Attorney
Ms. Ashley Benitez practices Family Law and handles a wide range of cases from a dissolution of marriage to paternity establishment and timesharing modification proceedings.
As a student, Ms. Benitez was a frequent name on the Dean's List and was an active member of the Nova Trial Association, Golden Key Honor Society, Political Science Honor Society, International Relations Honor Society, and the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life fundraising events.
Ms. Benitez's love for children lead her to pursue a legal career and become a family law attorney. Since graduating cum laude from Nova Southeastern University's School of Law, Ms. Benitez has established herself as a vital member of the legal community as a member of the Miami-Dade County Bar Association, Florida Bar Association, American Bar Association, and as a volunteer for the Florida Bar sponsored High school Mock Trial.
Ms. Benitez is an avid long-distance runner and brings the same persistence and strong-willed attitude needed to win 10k runs to the courtroom where she fights for her clients and never loses sight of the best possible resolution. Her law approach is tenacious and determined yet sympathetic and conscious of each client's individual needs and situation.
Ms. Benitiez is licensed to practice in the State of Florida and is fluent in English and Spanish.
