Attorney Michelle Medina is considered a leading legal mind among both
her clients and peers, past and present. While she attended University
of Florida Levin College of Law in Gainesville, she had already made a
name for herself as a legal professional on-the-rise during her internship
as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable D. Levy. Her focus, commitment,
and talents earned her many educational achievements and honors, such
as becoming a recipient of the Minority Participation in Legal Education
Full Scholarship. Michelle now calls Owenby Law, P.A. her home, where
she plays a crucial role in the management of highly-complex divorce and
estate planning cases.
Before she joined our law firm, Michelle expanded her legal knowledge and
abilities through numerous employment opportunities and business ventures.
She acted as an associate attorney and multidepartment manager for reputable
law firms before opening her own private practice that focused on marital
settlement agreements, corporate filings, and business contract drafting
and review. Michelle also had the unique opportunity to be part of a three-person
probate-mental health team for the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil
Regional Counsel, 3rd District of the State of Florida. During her time on this groundbreaking
team, she was tasked with representing indigent individuals in emergency
guardianship and adult protective service cases, sometimes taking on up
to 50 hearings in a single week.
Outside of her legal career, Attorney Michelle Medina spent two years in
Benalmadena, Spain to teach English to locals who only spoke Spanish.
She is also a proud Board Member and legal counselor
pro bono for Samantha’s Purpose, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to increasing
awareness of cerebral palsy.
