Paula Ferreira Montoya, offers over ten years of comprehensive legal experience. On top of her experience, she also brings a multinational perspective on world cultures, politics, economics and business. She is fluent in both Portuguese and Spanish, and is conversational in French.
Raised and educated in Central Florida, one unique and significant strength Paula brings to clients is that she is able to represent local and international clients by offering the best of both worlds. Orlando has been her home for over 20 years and she is familiar with all local laws and developments. On the other hand her comprehensive work experience and background in immigration law and familiarity with different cultures provide confidence to her international clients. A lot of investors today are foreign nationals and often think that because they have a will or a trust in their own country, properties held in the United States will automatically flow to their beneficiaries upon their death. To complicate matters further, many new investors would prefer to communicate in their native language rather than in English. With the increased population and investment growth pouring out of Latin America into Florida and other parts of the United States, clients are benefited by Paula’s multilingual capabilities with her fluency in Portuguese and Spanish.
Realizing her passion for working with people and her interest in law, Paula pursued a Juris Doctor degree and subsequently graduated from Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida. Paula is a member of the Florida bar and proudly earned the highest overall bar exam score of her graduating class at Barry University.
