“It seems like yesterday that I was waiting for the much-anticipated letter from The Florida Bar that would announce whether I passed or failed the two-day bar exam when in reality it has been more than 20 years since I took the Florida Bar Exam. Reflecting on the past 20 years, my advice to young and experienced attorneys alike is: Do not be afraid of detours and be open to new opportunities as you never know where they might lead. Change is a reality of life. To be successful, one has to be open to new ideas, technology and be willing to adapt to an ever-changing environment.”
“On behalf of Pavese Law Firm, we congratulate Christina on this important milestone in her distinguished career,” says Charles Mann, co-managing partner at Pavese Law Firm. “Christina brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our firm and clients, particularly in the increasingly important field of employment law. We are fortunate to have her as a member of our team.”
