Alessandra B. Manes received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Central Florida. She continued to earn her Juris Doctorate from the Barry University School of Law. While attending law school, Alessandra served as Justice of the professional law fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta, was a Governor of the Young Lawyers Division, Law Student Division, and President of Intramural Sports Club.
In her final year of law school, Alessandra was recognized by the Women Lawyers Association as a female leader on campus for her compelling leadership and outstanding balance of serving justice in the community while maintaining involvement.
Alessandra began her professional career working at a firm that practiced exclusively immigration law. Alessandra represented individuals and entities in obtaining their business and personal immigration objectives.
Alessandra was later presented with the unique opportunity to continue practicing immigration law while simultaneously gaining knowledge and experience in the practice area she was always the most passionate about, family law. This allowed Alessandra to personally handle a variety of family law cases both through the initial dissolution of marriage or paternity matter as well as through post-final judgment matters. She dealt with issues such as equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, alimony, parenting issues, timesharing, child support, and contempt and enforcement of orders.
Alessandra was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2015 and the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida in 2016. She is a member of the Florida Bar Association and the Orange County Bar Association. As an active member of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association Alessandra serves on the Children’s Issues, Equitable Distribution, and Domestic Violence committees.
In 2017, Alessandra completed the Collaborative Law training program at the Barry University School of Law.
When Alessandra is not vigorously advocating for her clients, she is spending most of her time with her four-legged furry only child, Rogue. Rogue is a red nose pit bull that Alessandra’s family has cared for since the pup was five weeks old.
They can usually be found lounging around the house cuddled up together while Alessandra reads a good book. During football season, Alessandra participates in a fantasy football league and never misses a game.
She is a die-hard Denver Broncos fan and can be spotted at any Florida team’s stadium when they are up against her Broncos. But above all else, Alessandra’s most valued role in life is that of “Tia Lelê” to her niece, Gabi and nephew, Leo. She hopes to be someone they can always look up to and forever count on. As a native of Brazil she is fluent in Portuguese.
