Toni Latino, Esq. Interim Executive Director

 

Attorney Toni Latino received her Juris Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center in 2005, after receiving her undergraduate degree from Florida State University in 2002. But she already had considerable legal experience before returning to school for her law degree. Following Latino’s receipt of a paralegal certification from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, she spent many years in both the public and private sectors of the legal profession.

As a senior litigation paralegal for several south Florida law firms and for the ACLU since 1981 Latino had responsibility for overseeing cases involving foreclosures, family law, and corporate litigation, client intake and contact, document control, and research and writing. She spent time working for the American Civil Liberties Union between 1991 and 1998, where her responsibilities included tracking and reporting on all Florida based legal actions sponsored by the ACLU, client intake assessment, assisting the Legal Director in document preparation and briefs; and coordinating the annual Lawyer’s Conference. Following a short time as a legal intern with Broward County Legal Aid, Latino worked as the Director of the Community Legal Assistance in Ft. Lauderdale from 2003 until she graduated from law school in 2005. After graduation from law school, Latino worked on her own as a family law attorney in Plantation, Florida until forming a partnership with attorney Anthony B. Borras. Throughout her entire legal career, whether she was working as a paralegal, as a volunteer at Broward County Legal Aid, or as in independent attorney, Latino has always tried to help families through the roughest parts of their lives, whether that is a divorce, bankruptcy, foreclosure, probate action, or any other way in which the law touches the lives of most people. You can always count on her to bring a sympathetic, experienced, and professional ear to any legal problem that you may have.
