Armando Pérez

Armando served in the United States Army for 13 years as an Infantry combat leader and a Communication Instructor. He is a native Spanish speaker born and raised in Havana, Cuba until age 16. Among his greatest accomplishments are: (1) graduating the toughest combat leadership in the world, Ranger School; (2) fighting in Iraq’s “Triangle of Death” alongside a Medal of Honor recipient; and (3) mentoring and training a Soldier for the 2014 Best Warrior Competition all the way to the national level.

Armando’s passion is using persuasion through the power of storytelling. Passionate principle advocacy is more than just the law and the facts. This is where a good story that is persuasive, credible, and captivating has the potential to move hearts and minds. He is relentless when it comes to fighting for the rights of our clients, and always goes the extra mile to support our Law Firm’s mission to protect and defend clients from legal exposure. His hobbies are technology, philosophy, and fitness. Armando is planning to take the Florida Bar on July 2020, after finishing his LL.M. in Advocacy.
