Life Law Planning
Born and raised in Lakeland, Florida, the youngest of 3 children; her parents, Cuban refugees, instilled in Alina at an early age the importance of family, community, education, and pride in this country.
These values are the reason why she is dedicated to representing her clients and their families for 26+ years in the areas of Divorce, Family Law, Estate Planning and Probate.
Alina began her career in private practice, as an associate and then a partner in Harris & Gonzalez, a small law firm in Lakeland, Florida, where she concentrated in Family Law. In December 2008 the Board of Directors of Heart of Florida Legal Aid Society, Inc. (HOFLA) hired Alina to be its Executive Director. Then in November 2014 she moved to Fort Myers to be became the Executive Director of the Lee County Legal Aid Society (LCLA). Through Alina’s work and community involvement, she grew both professionally, philanthropically, and personally. Having loved her work with these agencies and the impact made in the community, she found that she missed building those meaningful connections and bonds with the individuals and families she served through her representation. That is why she opened Life Law Planning where Alina and her team believe in personalized service for every client.
Alina is a proud member of the Florida Bar Association, an organization dedicated to providing sophisticated and excellent service in today’s dynamic legal environment. I am a member of the Florida Bar’s Real Property, Probate, and Trust Law Section and the Florida Bar’s Family Law Section.
She is a very proud Alumna of the University of Florida receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992…GO GATORS! Alina received her juris doctor from the St. Thomas University School of Law in 1996.
Personally, Alina loves to cook, bake and entertain. Reading is a passion, and she is a dedicated to her personal growth and in business.
