How Sandra Helps Clients
Sandra focuses her practice on commercial litigation, class action defense, and civil appeals.
Prior to joining Buchanan, Sandra clerked for the Honorable Bronwyn C. Miller at the Florida Third District Court of Appeal, where she had the ability to gain insight into the judicial decision process and utilizes this knowledge to tailor her advocacy and advance her clients’ interests. There, Sandra assessed and provided recommendations in over 200 appeals, an experience which furnished her with the capability to understand the best strategy to adopt for any legal matter.
While in law school, Sandra was selected to intern for the Florida Supreme Court, the State Attorney’s Office, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, as part of their honors legal program. Additionally, as a law student, she served on the executive board of several student associations, including as the first deputy editor-in-chief of the World Arbitration and Mediation Review. During her last year and prior to her clerkship, Sandra also worked at a boutique firm in Miami, counseling and representing individuals and small businesses.
What Clients Can Expect
Sandra is a firm believer listening and understanding the goals of each individual case, to ensure every step throughout the litigation process has intention and protects and prioritizes the needs of the different disputes. Sandra communicates with clients on a regular basis to make certain they are kept fully apprised of pertinent developments throughout the litigation process.
Outside the Office
Sandra’s favorite “season” is football season, when she looks forward to rooting for the Dallas Cowboys. She believes that exercising often is a great approach to achieve mental clarity and sharpness, which translates to ensuring she provides her best self in each situation she encounters. As someone who grew up in a landlocked city, Sandra loves the beach and spending time by the ocean. Additionally, she enjoys reading, baking, and being in the company of her family.
