About Amal

Amal hails from Marrakesh, Morocco, where she lived until her teenage years. At 16, Amal immigrated to the United States as part of an international student exchange program. Amal first moved to El Paso, Texas, where she lived with an American host family until she graduated from high school. Education After graduating from high school, Amal relocated to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. Amal earned her B.A. in Political Science from UCF in 2004. While attending UCF, Amal had the opportunity to intern at the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association. It was during this time that she realized how many people were denied access to the legal system solely because of a lack of funds. It seemed unjust. The playing field was not level. It was this experience that reinforced Amal's existing desire to attend law school. Amal attended law school at the University of Florida and earned her Juris Doctor in 2007. After graduating from UF Law, Amal joined a mid-size Personal Injury law firm in Ocala, Florida, where she had the unique opportunity to work alongside one of Florida's first Board Certified Civil Trial lawyers. That mentoring opportunity provided her invaluable courtroom experience and furthered the development of her legal skills. Legal Experience After graduating from UF Law, Amal joined a mid-size Personal Injury law firm in Ocala, Florida, where she had the unique opportunity to work alongside one of Florida's first Board Certified Civil Trial lawyers. That mentoring opportunity provided her invaluable courtroom experience and furthered the development of her legal skills. In 2009, Amal moved back to Orlando and joined one of the largest insurance defense firms in the country. While there, Amal handled complex premises liability, personal injury, and general liability actions on behalf of Fortune 500 Companies and large insurance carriers, including the largest retailer in the world. In 2013, Amal was made a Partner at the firm. She was the youngest attorney to ever make Partner. In 2014, after spending years defending large corporations and insurance companies, Amal's professional experience and internal desire to help people were in serious conflict. She decided to make a long overdue change and became a plaintiff's attorney, which allowed her to align her career goals and personal values.
