Evelyn Lopez is an experienced associate attorney for the family division at Jarbath Peña Law Group. She joined the firm after working several years as a litigation and trial attorney at the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office.
During that time, Evelyn handled hundreds of cases; leading countless of them from arrest all the way through trial. She has gained extensive legal experience representing individuals charged with crimes ranging from misdemeanors up to serious life felonies. All of this experience has made her a strategic trial attorney and a fierce negotiator and advocate.
Evelyn’s quest for justice started young. She attended Florida International University where she graduated Cum Laude with Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Criminal Justice. She then attended Florida International University College of Law where she earned her Juris Doctor. Never satisfied with simply going through law school, Evelyn leaned-in. She did all she could to sharpen her legal mind and experience to prepare her for fighting for the rights of her clients. While in law school, Evelyn was a member of the school’s trial team. She went even further, and she interned and volunteered at the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office. She also participated in the school’s study abroad program where she spent a summer studying law in Sevilla, Spain at La Universidad de Sevilla.
Despite her love of the Spanish culture, Evelyn returned to Miami, Florida where she was born and raised. Evelyn loves all the diversity Miami has to offer, including its rich history, culture, languages, and food. Given her love for all things international, Evelyn is fluent in Spanish. As a newlywed, Evelyn likes to spend her spare time cooking and trying new recipes. Being that she is a self-proclaimed avid foodie, she loves to try new cuisines and enjoys eating for the pleasure of it.
