"El que tiene un derecho no obtiene el de violar el ajeno para mantener el suyo." 

"He who has a right does not have the right to violate another's to maintain his own."– José Martí

This quote speaks to what I consider to be the heart of the legal profession. I firmly believe that lawyers are meant to protect the rights of individuals and strive to create more fairness and justice through their work.

Get to Know Jennifer Mosquera

What inspired you to pursue a law career?

When I was in high school, I became heavily involved in mock trial, moot court, and debate. My senior year I had the honor of arguing before the Florida Supreme Court and winning the Florida State Moot Court Finals. Participating in these programs showed me all of the ways the law was dynamic and interesting, and it helped me realize that I wanted to be a lawyer.

What skills do you draw upon when it comes to your specific practice areas?

The most important skills I employ in my asset recovery practice are critical thinking and consistency. A lot of times, the best solutions require not only creativity, but additional follow through to make sure the desired results are achieved.
